My Mom reminded me today that stocking time is quickly approaching!
*Sidenote: I can’t wait to go home–that’s right folks, from the 19th of December until my birthday (turning the big 27 in 2008), you can find me in LeRoy, NY.*
In past years, we’ve brainstormed together to create a list of season’s best stocking stuffers. And since I’m a firm believer in the beneficiality of holiday rites, I say, “Let’s do it again, by Jove!”
The Ultimate Stocking of 2007
Home Cooking by Laurie Colwin (used paperback edition perfectly acceptable) ELVES HAVE ACCOUNTED FOR THIS ITEM!
Dried Cherries & Cranberries
Pentel Metal Tip 0.7mm Ball Black Ink Pens
A Simple Silver Necklace with a very small clasp, so that I can change the charms.
Variety of Exotic Spices
Heavy Duty Potato Masher
Black Nylon Socks are always a big hit, and a great filler!
Pencils with Erasers
Tweezers with plastic tips like Mom’s and Phoebe’s
Magazine Subscription that comes to me in Italy (preferably Bon Appetit, Gourmet or Food & Wine)
A Cool Contact Lens Case
My Signature Perfume (I don’t know what that is yet…I love BVLGARI, but that’s my sister’s signature scent, so I can’t use that. I guess what I really need is: A book or guide of some sort on how to pick a perfume that’s right for you.
A Good Recent Family Photo (or perhaps we can arrange to take one…)
A Coupon to Go See or Rent Becoming Jane
An Insulated Lunch Bag
I need some serious fashion help, therefore: a book about dressing with style
A Pecan Pie
Dad’s French Toast (After stocking opening)
A Pumpkin Shaped Cookie Cutter
Travel jewelry case
A Turkey Dinner (Thanksgiving style. Okay, okay, obviously this is not going to easily fit into my stocking. Neither is the pecan pie. I’ll settle for eating them together at some time during the Christmas season).
