    I love this idea for the light cards! Do you mind sharing the file for printing? I have plenty of empty gift cards so this would be great.

    It can vary greatly. If you are extremely creative and crafty, and you can buy some raw materials cheaply and make the gifts, you can probably get away with not spending too much and keep the costs down. If you are not creative or crafty at all (or simply don’t have the time), and you have to purchase all the gifts, it can get quite costly when all is said and done.


    I’ll probably need my flame suit for this, but here goes anyway. :duck: I think we’re reaching a tricky point with the whole FE thing. Let me be clear with this though…I do believe, in general, that everyone’s hearts are in the right place with what they do. I don’t really think people are purposefully being ostentatious at all. However, it does seem that some of the gifts are becoming more and more elaborate (which usually means more expensive). I think the primary reason being that people just try to come up with unique ideas that haven’t been done before. I know it’s also nearly impossible to try to set any kind of limitations. It’s also human nature to not want to feel like the family who gave out the worst FE gifts. So, I believe many families probably use the best, most elaborate gifts they’ve received in the past as kind of the benchmark for what they will give out in the future. So it sort of becomes an “upward” spiral, if you will.

    I tried several times to send you a PM and it wouldn't go through. Would you send me one and I'll just reply to it. Thanks.

    I think I have 12. It's a total of 40 people, including us. So, I put together 37 gift bags. And that's with me making some of the gifts too. It's just hard for me to want to do a "family" gift for each cabin. I had some ideas for gifts for kids and adults and just went with it.
