We have a tradition in my family of always having a table gift for Christmas dinner. It's awesome because there is usually a lull in the day after all of the presents have been opened. And when you see that table gift, your eyes light up again! These little presents make the perfect table gifts. What kind of traditions do you have for the holidays? I'd love to hear!
