I enjoy giving also! Sure, it's not stress-free, but I come up with well-received ideas...like food.


So here is what I gave:


-Milk chocolate almond and dark chocolate Kisses

-Chocolate Orange


-Almond Roca

-Brandy candy (...I mean brandy-filled chocolates)

-Summer sausage

-Mason jar of buttons

-Empty spools of thread

-iTunes gift card


-Ann Taylor Loft sweater (great brand for multiple age groups!)

-Isotoner gloves

-Trader Joe's lotion (somehow they do it right)


I also played a hand in hiding a vintage sewing table and preparing it for gifting to my mom.

Merry Christmas to all the fine folks here on TPR!! It has been a great holiday season visiting and spending time with our families and friends, which is definitely one of the best parts of Christmas for us.


My wife and I tend to keep the gift exchanging rather subdued, which is nice. We'll fill up each other's stockings then exchange a couple "bigger" gifts. As for this year:


Got from the wife:

- A remote starter for my Subaru Forester!

- A Kennywood book

- Steelers hat

- Daughtry CD


Gave to the wife: (my favorite part)

- A new purse she really loved (but would otherwise never buy herself)

- Tickets to see "Beauty and the Beast" in April

- Glee CD Vol. 7/Live concert DVD

- Harry Potter 7 (Part 2) DVD


We got plenty of other things from the fam, but I won't get into listing all that. Hope you all have a great New Year's!

Here's what I got


$75 worth of Best Buy Gift cards

Givenchy "NEO" cologne

A soft serve ice cream maker

A griddle

and the most random gift of the year goes to a Domo Onesie pajama set. If I get enough people bugging I MAY be willing to post a photo of me wearing it, but only maybe


Very laid back Christmas this year.
