Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.
This year, the most enjoyable gifts I gave were a cashmere sweater to my wife, a sizeable donation to a 529 savings account to my son, a top-quality HEPA air filter for my grandmother, and homemade wall calendars for my parents, my grandmother, and my brother’s family that incorporated snapshots of the array of children that my brothers and I have.
My favorite gifts I received were a 2007 Moleskine large desk diary (from a friend to use as an idea diary), a good Leatherman, a subscription to Consumer Reports and to Money Magazine, a copy of TurboTax, a couple personal finance books (that I’ll review in the next month or so), and several items of clothing. Not a bad Christmas in terms of practicality.
What were your favorite gifts this year?
