Holiday Gift Ideas

by Sarah on December 8, 2010, 4 comments

I’m gathering ideas for gifts for my family and friends, December 25th always seems to sneak up on me…I vow to stop the trend.

For my Husband,

Books-I always select some for Dan. He says I have a knack for it and I usually make great picks. I have already made my picks for this year and I can’t reveal them because he’ll read it (which is nice that he reads the blog, thanks sweets).  Here are some he’s received in previous years,

gift dremel accessory kit

my Dad is getting a Dremel Multi-Max, so we’ll give him some extra attachments to go with it. I was pretty excited when I read about the grout tool, I watched Norm scrape out old grout on This Old House with a rotary tool. When you renovate old houses–this is an exciting prospect.

For my Sister,

gift fingerless gloves jcrew
