No one keeps a cow for a friend, and other good advice

Posted by on October 15, 2007

We are approaching the season of giving, only partly because my birthday is on Wednesday, and this year, THIS year, I am determined to get my shopping done early.

But of course no one but me knows in October what they might want for Christmas (and if you’re my dad, you might not know until, like, January), so I have to get creative. Which is fine if I’m writing a dog-based article but tougher if I have to gift shop.

Anyway, I thought I would open the floor to gift ideas. We’ve all had those most awesome presents that bear repeating. Maybe someone whisked you off to Des Moines for a great ironic mini-break, or bought you a sampler pack of maple syrups (“Syrups come in kinds?” -Dawn) or got the most expensive thing on your wish list. What was your best present ever, and what was so great about it? How do you figure out what to get people? All advice/stories are welcome.
