I'm Making a List, Checking it Twice

So I've been working diligently on my home shopping Christmas list for this year. Unfortunately, it's hard to remember all the multitudes of people that I'm supposed to be buying presents for ... at least according to those very generous TV hosts. In fact, they seem to be quite enthusiastic about purchasing inappropriate and expensive gifts for every casual acquaintance and service professional that they kinda sorta know.

And just in case you accidentally overlook getting a special gift for your dental hygienist, you need to be sure to have several items tucked away in a gift drawer (or a gift closet if you're lucky).

You can never have too many Valerie Parr Hill scented soy candles with coordinating gift bags, you know!

Now let's see if I forgot anyone ...

cat groomer

dog walker


meter reader

crossing guard

kid's teacher

cafeteria lady

nail technician

mail carrier

hair dresser

Did I forget someone? Please let me know soon! That Countdown to Christmas clock is tick-tick-ticking away!

  3. Crab cakes for the gyno?!?!?!?!? HAH! Love it!
