Gift-Giving Conundrum

Dear Readers,

Over the last couple of days, I've realized that Thanksgiving is right around the corner, which means holiday shopping starts right after that.  While I'm excited about the gift-giving season, I oddly feel a bit at a loss as to what sorts of gifts to give several (read: most) people on my list.

Oh, sure, gift-giving depends a lot on your budget and the recipient's interests, but I'm curious:  What gifts are you giving this year?  What are you giving to the person who has everything?  Too many clothes?  Too many books?  Too many toys?  Too many years of food gift baskets?  Too much jewelry?  Too many tchotchkies?

What are this year's hot gift items?

What are gifts that you've received in the past that have been awesome?  Not so awesome?  A nice idea, but the item didn't work as well as you thought?

I'm starting to plow through the catalogs now, but I'd love to know what you're giving this year.  Help a sister out!

Your pal,

  1. Surprisingly, I managed to pick up enough little things here and there during the year (trips, art fairs, etc.) to cover the fam entirely. I'm pretty pleased about that. The husband is always a challenge, though. Doesn't help that his birthday is a month after Christmas, so I have to come up with twice the ideas.
