What to Buy for the Christmas Vacation Movie Lover on Your List

Monday, December 23, 2013

If you've been reading the blog for any amount of time, you might have picked up on the fact that we Harrises are slightly enamored with the National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation movie. We've mentioned it a few times like here here, and here. So, something Christmas Vacation themed is always a hit when it comes to presents, but we have been doing this so long that we had to get creative this year - we are running out of ideas! 

These might look familiar to anyone who knows the movie well:




We recreated the L-shaped gifts that Clark (and apparently every other employee) gave to Mr. Shirley for Christmas. "Put it over there with the others, Greaseball!"


While IMDB FAQ explains that the ones from the movie were desk organizers, we recreated the L-shape for Daddy with two boxes of chocolate cherries, wrapped individually in the same paper and then taped together into an L-shape with clear packing tape. Of course, ours are a little bit larger, but considering Daddy loves chocolate cherries, this was a perfect way to present them to him. Here he is with all of his Mr. Shirley gifts:


And (if you were wondering), yes that's a custom made Griswold Blackhawks jersey that he's wearing. A Christmas Vacation gift from a previous Christmas. :-)
