Maybe you could buy them a new bone or a new play toy or even have your children make something that shows how much your family values that pet.

Stock Up on Stocking Stuffers

Day 64 – Go through your gift closet and stash of trinkets and goodies. Inventory what you have and consider what might be good to keep your eye out for to add to your collection. Keep in mind the size of your stockings and do not go overboard. What does Santa put in stockings at your house?

Address Roundup
