I just want to jot down some ideas I had that might make Christmas away from home more Christmas-y, if we ever decide to take a Christmas vacation again.

Put the itinerary for each day (and any necessary tickets) in a gift box and open it each morning. Write on the outside of the box what day and what time to open it. Or open it the night before. But keep the trip and activities secret and only reveal one day at a time.

Remember the plastic wrap.


  1. That is a GOOD idea! I'll have to remember that one.
    Hope your trip is going well!

  2. Those are great ideas! The other thing I've heard to make a trip feel longer... at least the nice parts :).... is to send yourself postcards of things you enjoyed doing and sharing those memories on the back to reread later.
