But then again, I haven't been in the stores for a while so it's possible that there are trees and decorations spewed about with all our best Jewish musicals singing our best Christmas songs!
Mom has made it a tradition that each year, she gives the gift that keeps on giving... knives. Cutco knives to be specific. I've almost got the whole set! And each new year, I tuck my knife set in little sleeping bags and ship them back to the company for a complimentary sharpening and replacing (if need be). That is the service you get with a knives that cost as much as a 20 piece set at Ikea.
Love a life time guarantee...
... just saying... mom.
