- If your loved ones also read ATS, then this thread is probably NOT for you (at least not until after tomorrow).
So what did you get for Christmas??? I mean, NOT what did YOU get, but rather what did you get for OTHERS???
To me, the best part of Christmas is giving. I wish I was better at wrapping presents (I suck at it), and had more inventive ideas, but I always love
to hear what people got others for Christmas and why. Sometimes the story means more than the gift itself.
Okay (sigh)...I'll go first...
(I won't list everything, but just the notable items)
1. I think we must have 1,000 cookbooks if we have just a single one, BUT amazingly enough there's one cookbook in particular that we don't have. So,
I got my wife probably one (well, two actually) of the most famous cookbooks of all time (behind the hardcore professional ones). I got her the two
volume hardback boxed set of...Mastering the Art of French Cooking
, by Julia Child. My wife has always loved Julia Child and her eccentricity
and humor. She always commented about these books being two notable ones we didn't have. So, now she has both.
2. Normally the wife buys me something from Le Creuset for Christmas. (I think they're secretly for her, but I won't tell anyone). So earlier this
year she was commenting about how she didn't really have any small baking dishes for individual baked items. I decided I'd order some Le Creuset
Cocottes (set of 4). They're the Le Creuset cermic dishes (not cast iron like most Le Creuset), but I was able to find them in the "Flame" color to
match all the rest of our stuff (which is actually getting to be 'a bunch' anymore).
3. Oh, and I got her a brand new kitchen too, but that's still a work in progress, but we do now have the 48" double oven range now, and the vent
hood, and the new farm sink...so it's getting close!
Otherwise just some misc. clothing and fun stuff.
What did you get (for others)?
