Holiday Gift Quiz

It’s Tuesday. It’s snowing outside. It is a snow day so we are all at home. French toast will be on the menu! So let’s do a quick holiday gift quiz.

Feel free to answer in the comments or leave a link if you’ll be answering on your blog.

For these questions money, storage space and time is no object.

  • List 3 things you would like to receive as a gift. Go all out for at least one of them.
  • List 3 gifts you’d like to give. You don’t have to mention who it’s for.
  • List 3 food gifts you’d like to give or receive.
  • Here are my answers:
    • 1. An Irish Wolfhound puppy. In my fantasy life I have large Irish Wolfhound who walks very nicely on a leash when we walk around the neighborhood and he lays down nicely on the couch next to me when I knit. 2. Enough cashmere yarn to knit a cardigan. I don’t even know if I’d like it but I know it would be super soft and warm. 3. A cool pair of boots.
      1. A trip around the world visiting all the Disney parks. 2. A Mazda Miata 3. A hunting trip.
      1. A gallon of Kimball’s Ice cream. 2. Fudgetown Cookies. These were discontinued but they were a favorite. 3. A beer subscription for The Husband. He and Myles would really enjoy that.

Dairy doesn’t agree with me but I’d suffer the consequences. 2. Magically Calorie free lifetime supply of Montezuma’s lime and sea salt dark chocolate bars. 3.

      To receive: 1. My own yarn room in our house. I can imagine how wonderful it would be to have all my yarn out on nice shelves from IKEA. In the room I would love a comfy chair just to sit, knit, and read. 2. A trip to a mill to see how wool is made. I would also like to go through a cotton mill as well. 3. To see my stepchildren again. They live in Wiesbaden Germany with their mother. Unfortunately this is the dreaming gift because we will not be able to see them until their 18.

      To give: 1. I want to make a pair of socks for my husband that he would like. 2. I want to buy a lot of gifts for my stepchildren and send them anonymously so they will be able to keep them and enjoy them. 3. I want to give a scarf to my mother-in-law that she would really like.

      Food: 1. SugarFree whoppers….I love whoppers but being a Type 1 Diabetic its not really a good thing to have. 2. A meatloaf. Currently my oven doesn’t work so its been hard not being able to make it. 😦 3. Guacamole Salad that my mother used to make. It was amazing. Right now avocados are out of season but my hope is to make it in the spring. It had chips and tuna as well. It was the best thing to have on a summer day.
