Thanks for the Gift Ideas!

Just wanted to say thanks for all the great gift ideas offered in response to this bleg. Taking a second look at my Christmas list, I ended up realizing I was short of few kids and teens, so I was very happy to end up purchasing a harmonica and instruction book for one, a leather-working kit for another, a logic/detective game and a few other trinkets. The advice was great, thanks, guys!

Along with buying yet a few more jars of Monastery Mustard (I ordered it too early and my family kept eating the gifts, They make a lot of sandwiches!) I’ve had to go back and order a few more soaps and lotions and rosary bracelets and of course some last minute Mystic Monk Coffee (I’m going to try the Jingle Bell Java for Christmas, and they sell little bag clips and hoodies, now, too!), all of which we talked about here, I’m pretty much done!

I just ordered this very sweet-looking cardigan, in black, for Elder Son’s Sweet Fiance, isn’t it sweet? I love the this second one, also – it would be great with a pair of jeans.

Here’s some of what I’ve bought this year if anyone is interested or looking for gift ideas themselves! Widgets Widgets

    Watch out on the Jingle Bell Java. I got hooked and have to order several bags at once now, for the times they run dry. They are big teases with that stuff.

    You’re suggestions are very useful.

    But what really impresses me is the fact that, on November 23, even before Thanksgiving, you’re already finished with the Christmas shopping. Wow!

    Thanks for putting all of these links in one post. I just sent it to a friend who is crazy about mustard and coffee, so I “gently” suggested that she enter the sites via your blog. I’m getting ready to order coffee for my coffee-loving friends for Christmas gifts. This year, I’m putting together gift baskets with consumables for almost everyone. I stopped at one of the pricey kitchen shops the other day and got some delicious balsamic vinegar for the gourmet cooks…this had flavors of fig & Meyer lemon included and it’s delicious. And I’m starting the “hot chocolate mix” marathon…my kitchen will probably look like a cocaine factory with the bits of powdered milk all over the place, but the gifts will be greatly appreciated. I also make several batches of the recipe for Baked Oatmeal that The Anchoress posted a couple years ago and people on my gift list also love this very much!
