My friend Melissa came up with the idea to have a tea exchange rather than a cookie exchange and to set it up as and advent "calendar". The premise was to get to enjoy a variety of teas over the month of December and potentially become introduced to teas we had never tried before.
We all got to enjoy 24 delicious and different teas during the month of December. Such a healthy and unique way to celebrate advent.
This idea requires planning ahead, but it is so worth the effort and oh so much fun to look forward to each day's "surprise" tea!
Sara from SewSara.com was inspired by her friend's Christmas idea and prepared this unique way to celebrate advent.
Books can be new or used.
See Sara's instructions here.
Kelly from Smart School House took the idea a step further and came up with the idea to wrap Christmas movies and enjoy a "surprise" movie every night until Christmas.
See Kelly's ideas here.
For those who want to keep the true story of Christmas front and center during the month of December, a Jesse Tree advent ornament exchange is perfect.
You can find the history and a list of symbols you'll need to base the ornaments on here.
Side Note: If you can't do an exchange but like the idea you could make one set of your own ornaments or purchase a set.
