Christmas Gifts For The Family

I have already prepared my Christmas gift list and lucky are those who made it in the list! Just kidding! I made the list the other day and I have been breaking my head as to what to give my family and friends with all the choices out there. I also have to put the budget in the equation as well because money is still scarce. However, I have been scrimping for almost 2 years and I feel that this is the time to spare something for my family because they deserve something special.

I have already bought my husband a gift yesterday and it is what he likes – iPad! Yes, a bit pricey but anything for the man who puts food on the table, shelter on our heads, and financial sustenance. He deserves that, big time. I am planning to buy my tech-savvy daughter a tablet too but not as pricey as the iPad. My mom is coming over for the holidays and I am checking some leather goods at GotBriefcases.com leather briefcases area. My mom has so many important documents which are just lying in her closet in one tote bag. Maybe an upgrade to a leather briefcase will be appropriate. My brother and his family will get their late Christmas gifts as well which I will send later on. There is another bundle of joy in the family coming soon and I am thinking of getting the little one a baby blanket and comforter.

My husband’s family is coming here too. So, the house is brimming and there will be a lot of people to add now in the list. My husband bought some Gap jackets in the US and other Bath and Body Works lotions and hand soaps which are great for the ladies. I have spare wallets too which I can give to my other relatives.

The Christmas list is still long. I have more shopping to do!

Navigating the Streets of San Diego

It has been 2 years since my family visited our relatives in San Diego. The first thing we noticed about our relatives there was their constant ability to get “lost” in the place where they actually live.

I found it really amusing and perplexing to get lost in your own state but my relatives’ explanation was quite logical. San Diego may not be that big but even if they live there for ages, they still have to find their way around because they don’t drive anywhere else aside from the regular which is work-home-mall-school-clinics.

My husband thought it would be nice to give them a GPS as a “thank you” gift for their hospitality. He even checked some great sites and found interesting navigational tools from garmin gps com. We really wanted that brand because most of our friends who bought the Garmin GPS had only praises for the features.

I know it is an overdue gift but we want to give the gift personally to them on our next visit as a surprise. That will surely make their road trip stress-free and chances of getting lost again will be reduced to the minimum.
