RE-GIFTING is not OK! Say what?!

Now that the Holiday Season is ON US like white on rice, look out for the newest trend in gift-giving: buying DOWN! Now ChicKnits knows that not all of us are LUCKY ENOUGH to have so many Dollar-type stores in their neighborhood, so when the office pundits or Family Muse decides that THIS YEAR you are only able to spend $10.00 on the gift swap, PANIC might ensue…

    Wow, Bonne Marie, you must wake up eaaarly. It’s 3:30am down here in Southern IL, and I haven’t gone to bed yet!

    If you throw in a couple of wire coat hangers with that duct tape, you’ve got a complete fix-it-all kit.

  3. Wendy G says:

    Love all the gift ideas. Thanks!

    Bonne Marie — Re the computer gear gifts are just wrong. I have to disagree with you on the chocolate computer keys (which are actually decorative stick on things). Chocolate is NEVER wrong — even a plastic replica of chocolate! =)

  8. Hi Bonne Marie, great list of links. But how could you forget American Science and Surplus?
