Getting to 20 gifts was easy, even into the 30’s wasn’t so bad once you Google a little. But it wasn’t until 3 days prior to the party we had all 40 in our hands.

I thought I’d post our list to help out anyone on their gift search. We did have fairly wide price range of ideas (that helps to hit 40) and I tagged each gift with a number for my sanity. I suppose you could get really clever and use the numbers to force opening the gifts in an order. Frankly, I was just happy we hit the magic number.
