I got Bamboo really excited over an advent calendar (in fact, he’s now the one who is actually making all the fun rules for it), but I knew there was no way I could get him interested in wrapping gifts. However, he also wants to surprise me every day of the countdown so I decided I’d prepare easy bags for him to put the tokens in without him having to do much work with the actual gift wrapping.
So with a bunch of sandwich bags, punched cards and ribbons I arranged ready-made gift bags for him for the next 25 days. He was happy he was able to put the small gifts he painstakingly shopped for (I know how he unlikes shopping, and that’s saying it mildly) under the tree without worrying that I’ll know what they are before the exact day they were meant to be given. And, looking at the bags, he felt like they were something he can actually assemble and manage without assistance. And he did.
