Christmas is a big stress for lots of people.
I know you’re a talented artist, why don’t you draw some small pictures for each person,
Then you can get some cheap thrift store frames, spray paint them and add your pictures.
Everyone would freaking love it!
And it’ll look nice and be very thoughtful.
My sister was flat broke one year, so she stitched everyone in the family one of these,
Pee Wee is one of my favorites, everyone else got pretty normal ones:
I absolutely love it, had to take it off the wall just now to get a good picture.
You’ve got time to put something like that together.
Also, it sucks that you don’t have any plans to go out with anyone on Veterans Day, but that doesn’t mean you have to sit around doing nothing.
You should go out and get some coffee and a nice meal, regardless.
