Thank you very much for the support.

Tis the Season for Gifts…

11 Dec

I am a huge advocate of people being frank with what they want.  I mean what is the big deal?  Yes, we want to be surprised.  But how happy are you going to be with your surprise gift if it is something you don’t want and/or need?!?  Plus, you can always give a list and be surprised by what the person picked from the list.  Overall, surprises are nice, but so is getting what you actually want.

This year I am trying to put together a short list of some good gift ideas, but I would also like to poll you to see what was the best you ever received.  Please let me know what you think are some great, creative gifts.

  • Mark your travels map (for the travel bug)
