The 12 Days of Christmas - Day 12

This last gift idea is my absolute favorite.  This gift encapsulates the true meaning of Christmas.  It is all about love and new beginnings and, and it just fills my heart with joy (I'm all farklemt. Talk amongst yourselves).

So, here it is.  Drum roll, please (Did you know in the 12 Days of Christmas song, the 12th gift is 12 drummers drumming?).  Drums continuing to roll, please.

The 12th gift idea is brought to you by Heifer International (no, no these are not the makers of "Milky the Marvelous Milking Cow"  ,the toy of my childhood dreams).

Our family has been big fans of Heifer International for years now.  For Christmas one year, our family members received gift cards from us explaining that we made a donation to Heifer International on their behalf.  You can make a donation online and print or email a gift card to go with it to your loved one.

You can purchase honey bees in honor of your special honey.  Or baby chicks for the cool chicks in your life.  Maybe, your Uncle Walter would be honored that you donated a water buffalo on his behalf.

With Heifer International,  are so many ways to bless those near and dear to you and families that you have never met from afar at the same time.

And there you have it!  12 Days and a dozen gifts. 

A dozen! That makes me think about the cookies that I have in the oven right now! And, I think that they are burning!

Call the fire brigade!
