I’m not dependent on giving and receiving gifts like my daughter, whose first language is gift-giving, not English! However, when I’m pressed for a list, I try to comply. Here are my favorites:
Books—novels by Brandilyn Collins or humor by Karen Linamen
Food—I especially like getting things I hesitate to buy for myself because they’re expensive and/or I’m the only one in my family who eats them. Think wild rice, shredded parmesan cheese, shelled pecans, sugared pecans, port wine cheese balls and Stoned Wheat Thins, sushi.
Gifts of time—I need help (often) with my computer, labeling and printing photos, going through closets and organizing things. I love it when my family offers to help me do these things!
Restaurant gift cards—We don’t eat out too often (Have you noticed? It’s expensive!), but I thoroughly enjoy a nice out.
