Here's a list of things that would be nice to receive for Christmas gifts. They are not listed in any particularly logical order.
SanDisk Cruzer Mini flash memory stick
It is also available at Costco (though not at Costco.com)
The one pictured is a 1 gigabyte capacity stick, they are the best value right now. It's about $69 at Costco, Amazon's MSRP of $299.99 is totally out of proportion.
An iTunes card would nice... Get them locally, Amazon's shipping charges are ridiculous. They come in $15 and $30 denominations.
REI Granite Pants. They come in three colors, I'll take any or all... 36x34... But since we both work there, an $18 gift card would be just as appreciated. Heck an REI gift card of any denomination would be welcome!
The Oxo Good Grips i-Series vegetable peeler. There are two Good Grips swivel peelers, the "i-Series" is the important part in this case. America's Test Kitchen gave it high marks this season... I think you have to go to a specialty store like Kitchen Window or Cooks of Crocus Hill to get one.
And on a related note... A subscription to Cook's Illustrated Magazine would be fun. Or one of their cook books, such as Inside America's Test Kitchen or America's Test Kitchen Live!
Gadgets!!! No not Kitchen ones... Geeky ones!!
Like this: Ethernet crossover Adapter.
Well That's part one... No, really, there will be more parts this time, I promise!!!
