My daughter is 24 and lives in Seattle but she is an only child so yes, I still do an Advent Calendar for her. Here's the thing, she doesn't like sweets and her Advent box has tiny doors and no room for much inside so.........scrolls of course.
I try to find quotes I think she will like and possibly hasn't read before, that is the hard part - I think she's usually read most of them but doesn't say anything. I type them out in different fonts and colors, cut them in strips, roll them up into mini scrolls and tie them with a satin ribbon. She keeps them in a jar afterward.
This is our thing. What's yours?
