Quilting magazines. An old friend, to whom I used to be married long ago, is an accomplished quilter (besides being entitled to be adddressed as "Doctor Hayes"). I sent her a big box with current issues of twenty-three different quilting magazines from four countries, and she was pleased.

I did not get even a lump of coal. Nope I got a new Lenovo, i5 laptop to replace the aging HP.

Wife got cash to spend as she wishes...makes her the happiest.

Reminds me of the guy who complained that his wife was always asking for money. "Twenty-five years we've been married, and she whines for money every day."

"What does she do with it all?" I asked.

"Dunno," he replied. "I never gave her any, so far."

Made a deal with the wife many years ago that she would buy her gift for Christmas and i would buy mine. Works great. I always get what I want (can afford) and she gets what she wants(whether can afford or not) Makes the rest of gift giving easy. The kids always want money and the grandkids are too young to care, just as long as they get gifts. Sure do miss those Christmases of yesteryear when Christmas really meant something special.

She felt a little better after she got the new kitchen so I ended up with a kiss.
