I’m always in a pickle when it comes to choosing presents for D. I know that he doesn’t really want clothes, shoes or perfumes, which is really my area of expertise when it comes to presuntz. He wants electronics, gadgets, and I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t say no to a power tool.
The thing is I don’t have the flare for finding the best price for a certain gadget, I can’t say if A is better than B just by reading the specifications and I most definitely don’t have the patience to look for the best deal on tens of websites.
So this year I stuck to T shirts. From Threadless, the Mecca of all tees. And now he is the proud owner of these babies (images lead you to the T shirt page):
(My favorite of the four is the last one, The Cloud Menagerie, because it reminds me of when I was a wee lass and at my Grandma’s house in the country I would climb on a haystack, and stare at the sky, trying to find shapes in the clouds. I’m sure we all did this when we were kids…)
A few weeks before Christmas I saw this card on Etsy, in Able&Game’s store and just had to buy it because it fits so perfectly!
And while I was busy checking the mailbox everyday so that D wouldn’t find the package from Threadless, he was busy telling me that the package he’d just gotten from the Post Office and containing my present was “nothing, just an antenna”.
… obviously a big fat lie because what it really contained was a POLAROID CAMERA (a vintage one from he 70s)!!! And film!
Do I need to tell you how excited I was? and still am? Now I can start working on this little project of mine…
What was your favorite present (given or received) this year?
