I mentioned to my wife that we needed a place for everyone to place their wishes throughout the year so gift giving was easier for the giver and more fun for the receiver.
It would have to have a compartment for each family member and be easy to get into at gifting time. Throughout the year, as you see something that would be nice to have, you drop a note in your slot ... instead of casually mentioning a specific wish once and then expecting someone (who probably wasn't paying attention at the time) to remember that wish months later ... whew!
Mrs. FC sat down and whipped this up on a Saturday morning. Just a modified shoebox with dividers inside. The colors are favorites of the person whose section they cover.
She intended it as a temporary solution, but I like it.
Mine is still empty ...Jr.'s is stuffed.
His birthday is this month.
