My dad said he was going to get a Christmas tree from Home Depot tomorrow and I get to decorate it when I get home in a few weeks. His birthday is on Christmas, but we never feel like cooking. So, for the past three years, we've gone out for Chinese food. :)
I'm so bummed, though, because my mom's family always has a Hanukkah party, but I'm not going to be home for it. We play a gag gift exchange game (I call it 'white elephant') and everyone gets really into it. I had been searching online for months for a funny gift (last year I gave Kosher Candyland, Borrow My Pens, and Road Shticks). There is a returning gift that is always in unassuming packaging: an Elvis Cookbook. It's been going on for years, and whoever gets it has to regift it in a creative way. I always have so much fun with my family.
Now that the Holiday season is around the corner, I can share my Wish List with you all!
Obviously some of these gift are completely unrealistic. I would never expect anyone to spend this much on me, but I just love that Hamsa necklace (but one for under $50). The lady with the cucumbers represents one day of relaxation and papering which I would gladly spend at home with friends and get a cheap massage from a local place. Perfection. The rest are just things I've had my eye on for a while, or brands that I'm a fan of. Enjoy!
