advent calendar gifts

I love the idea of an advent calendar, but I made a few tweaks and made an "advent calendar gift".

It's hard to tell but each gift has a post-it that is label for each day of Dec (1-14). The gifts end on Dec. 14th because that's when this quarter ends for my friend (gift receiver) and I. But of course you can have as many days you want with your advent calendar gift! (:

I tried to wrap each gift differently^^ (:

Things you will need/ steps in making an advent calendar gift:
1. first decide how many gifts/days you would want
            >>usually advent calendars start Dec 1st and end Dec 24th
2. make a list of gift ideas for the person you making this advent gift for
     or you can always do homemade gifts!
             --there are really cool/cute stuff at the dollar section at Target and
                Michaels which would make great advent gifts! (:
3. wrapping paper, twine, ribbons, etc. any wrapping supplies you would like to use
             >> I got most of my wrapping paper at Dollar Tree
                  & the twine was from Walmart
            && start wrapping!! make it as creative as you want!
4. label the gifts, so the gift receiver knows which gift to open up each day 

p.s. stay tune I will post pictures of the gifts later this week(:
