Winter, I agree, it was OK, just not top notch...just wrapped in plain blue paper with silver band and amazon logo tag. I thought there'd be a choice of papers and maybe a real ribbon. But, whatever, he's a guy, lol.
tt, I'm the impatient one in the house wanting to give gifts as soon as possible. DH is the king of patience regarding such things and even waits to open birthday cards until his actual birthday, not as they come! I don't know if they were beaten as children for opening things early or not, lol, but he sure acts like it's a crime against humanity. Actually, he didn't even ASK about the blue box with the ugly tag...I know he saw it.
I would prefer to do my shopping in store, too, but being out here in the boonies, amazon works better for us. Hate that they charge tax, now. I'll be going to the Natick Mall next week for girls' night out with old work buddies so will go early with a Christmas list. DH is turning 50 next March, too, so I've got to start thinking about that. It will come up fast. Also, party planning and how to deal with BIL. Maybe we'll do something in Florida...his folks won't be back North by then...too cold. I don't know...I'm starting to stress myself out.
ETA: hats, ah yes, old church music, good source. My mother was our church choir director for many years...I should have thought of that.
tt, Boston shops? I'm soooo jealous. I've been wanting to go to the consignment shops on Newbury for months. Second Time Around and the one across the street...can't recall name.
