If you pick a theme, make sure you will love it forever!

We picked a french theme, and let me tell you, we have recieved SO many french themed things as gifts over the past two years. It's a good thing I have a whole room with the theme and I still love it! We just got an eifell Tower canvas for Chirtimas the other day. I've gotten clocks, calendar, coffee mugs, hat boxes...anything with a frnech theme and I've gotten it. So be careful picking a theme and make sure you'll love it for life. 

Does anyone else have similar stories?

 I avoid themes whenever possible thanks to my sister. 

When her and my BIL first got together he bought her a little frog ornament and then bought her another for their first Christmas. From that moment on EVERYONE decided that they collected frogs and she got all sorts of junk that she had no interest in!! It's funny now but at the time it was awful seeing them receive yet another frog mug/tea towel/pair of socks year after year!!

It's so true Nicki! I grw up with my Grandpa living in the same house and I swear I never remembering him loveing lighthouses. Now, over the last few years everything he gets has a lighthouse on it. I'm pretty sure it all started when someone bought him something with a lighthouse and he probably said he liked it.

 Even though it was a simple ceremony, our theme stuck!  The most outrageous thing I've gotten was from my in-loves. You know how you can "adopt an amimal", like an elephant or lion in your honor, well two birthdays ago I got a PEACOCK!  Yes a peacock!  I have his photo and some of his feathers. I even got to name him!  He lives on a farm in Hawaii.
