What Is On Your Christmas List?

Are you having trouble finding gifts for everyone on your Christmas list?  Or deciding what to buy to finish your holiday shopping?  Every magazine has gift-giving guides and ideas in all price ranges and Oprah has her "Favorite Things" list each year.  So I thought I'd share my own personal gift giving guide for 2009. 
I already mentioned that my sister and I shopped together and bought each other pjs, long flannels on sale at KMart for $10.  Not too sexy, I know, but warm and cozy for watching TV and eating popcorn.  We also got cute Christmas socks for $1.

Then I found a painted and monogrammed wine glass for a friend of my husband at TJ Maxx for $7.99.  Make sure you get one made of glass, not plastic.  Gotta keep it classy. 

I chose this watch from Buy.com for someone special on my list.   They had a great closeout deal on it with free shipping.  The one I got had a bigger, cooler face with day and time. 

Last but not least, my husband wants a Kodak Video Camcorder Flip Camera....and I do believe Santa is bringing it.
Everything else is a secret.  Sorry I can't share them because they are surprises.  They are really the best presents of the bunch.  We'll talk about those the day after Christmas!  By then there will no more secrets.

Merry Christmas,
Sandra

  2. Some great idas there. A friend of ours also likes to give glasses as presents but he buys plain ones in vast quantities and paints them himself - beautiful if you are as talented as he is.

  3. I need ideas for my dad and step-mom and my in-laws. We usually do couple gifts and they usually get the same gift as one another. Any ideas?

  6. Aren't you the nifty shopper. Lucky hubby.

    I don't wear PJ's, but I do wear sleep pants. I like them soft, warm and comfy. As long as they are, I don't care what they look like, or how good or bad they look.
