My boyfriend and I had been dating for four months when our relationship became a long distance one. He went to college in Arizona and I went to college in New York.
That Christmas, we couldn’t be together, but I came up with a really awesome idea for a present. I picked out 25 songs for him, one for each of the 25 days in December leading to Christmas.
Each song somehow related to the number of the day it was on, whether it was the title, the lyrics, the band name etc. (for example, the song for day 11 was by the band Finger Eleven.) I burned a CD of all the songs for him to listen to and put it in a box to ship to him.
Inside the box, I also put a 25 hearts I’d cut out of red construction paper. On one side of each heart was a number, and on the other side I wrote what the song was for that day and why I picked it.
He called me on Christmas Day to tell me how much he loved it!
