Nowadays, we all tend to get everything we need, and then some, and our wish list is largely satisfied too, except maybe for those big items that are truly lotto dreams. I laughed when I looked at my nephew-in-law's Amazon list - where he has a $600 kegerator on the list. I love you man, but maybe you can just be satisfied with a 6-pack? Plus, you are in Cuba right now, so I'm pretty sure the kegerator would rust away unused for the next year.
Anyway, I managed to find some neat little things for those that we love and care for and I hope they are enjoyed by them all. We also went to some edible gifts this year (be watching your doorstep some of you family gathering loved ones on 12/23-12/24) and some custom items that came back with us from Italy.
This weekend was wrapping time, so my house looks like this:
A preview of some of the sweet gifts I found at my favorite stores - Pier One and Home Goods (not to mention vendors in Venice, Murano, Burano, Rome, and Florence!)
I'll probably have to go back and get us one of these throws - Penny really took a liking to it!
I learned my lesson last year. No fine/refined jewelry for the nieces...go funky, wild, and BIG!
I think I'm nearly done now. Just "wrapping it up" (pardon the pun) now. How are your holiday preparations shaping up?
