If you suspect I might be buying for you, please divert your attention elsewhere.
Otherwise, I present my (first) 2004 Holiday Gift List, a list of my gift choices for my friends and loved ones.
Also, please see “Gift Links” for URLs to other great gift sites.
Mom – She asked for binoculars, and I found these on Amazon.com. They were inexpensive, but had a great customer rating. I also purchased the Hitchcock classic, Notorious, which was surprisingly difficult to find. I ended up going through an Amazon seller.
Dad – He’s always easy — The new Beatles Box Set.
Boyfriend – A “Couch Potato Package,” which includes the Seinfeld DVDs Seasons 1-3, fleece lounge pants and cotton long-sleeved t-shirt from the GAP as well as popcorn and candies to complete the gift.
Boyfriend’s Roommate – A single man’s treasure. This baby cooks hot dogs to perfection — and toasts buns too. Throw in some plastic baskets and wax paper from you local restaurant supply store, and he doesn’t have any mess!
Boyfriend’s Mother – Fatal Deadlines – this murder-mystery by local author and journalist John Luciew takes place in our hometown of Harrisburg, PA.
Stepmother – A fancy lighter – I got her one last year but it was confiscated at an airport. Sheesh. This one’s way cooler, anyway.
Grandmother – Keri and I are going in together on a DVD player.
