Match up the two gifts so that combination rhymes with a person's numerical day of Christmas in the "Twelve days of Christmas" as follows:

1: smart pigeon, eclair tea = a partridge in a pear tree
2: myrrh, wool gloves = two turtledoves
3: wrench, pens = three French hens
4: doll, king words = four calling birds
5: mole, sun wings = five golden rings
6: visa, gray ring = six geese a-laying
7: bronze, Muslim ring= seven swans a-swimming
8: shades, a silk thing = eight maids a-milking
9: day peas, tan sling = nine ladies dancing
10: swords, asleep king = ten lords a-leaping
11: diapers, stripe ring = eleven pipers piping
12: some furs, plumbing = twelve drummers drumming
