Van's Wish List — Suggestions for 2008 Kris Kringle gift exchange
(Note: It's actually too late; I published this web page after Christmas(!), so it's largely academic. But I'm including it for completeness: if I forget again, you should be able to spot the pattern of what I'll always be yearning for at Christmas time by extrapolating from the previous years.)
The web links are for the most part up-to-date and functional. Keep updated for changes and/or corrections.
Ideas for Daddy
Basically, stuff I need but never get around to getting for myself:
- A decent pair of slippers/booties to keep my feet warm at home. Nothing too fancy. It just has to (a) keep my feet warm and (b) stay on when I run. (Sandal-types that force you to shuffle to walk in them won't work out.)
- A good pair of jeans. Somehow my jeans keep disappearing! I prefer ones from The Gap, because my jeans from Old Navy seem to rip easily and don't last.
But please, there are things you should not get:
- No white socks
Unless they are the exact same brand that I already wear, I end up with a drawer full of different white socks that don't match and are hard to pair up.
- No white underwear
I stopped wearing "tighty whities" and besides, I run around a lot and they chafe.
- Nothing dairy
I'll share it with the rest of the family but I can't eat it. In that case, you might as well get it for them!
