We're coming up on the Christmas holiday quickly now, we have just over a week until the big day arrives!
At our house my wife tends to do most of the gift shopping and wrapping because she enjoys giving to others so much, and she's just good at it.
I do, however, still have to go out and find a gift for my wife.
I'm not always flush with ideas, but I usually come up with something halfway decent (usually after asking her what she wants).
This year I can head over to one of the Coupons.com holiday gift guides, and check out the one for moms, and find something there – easy peasy!

My Christmas Wish List
We just bought a new house this year, and moved in a couple of months ago, so for the most part that was our Christmas gift to each other this year. But of course after moving into a new house, you always need to buy items so that you're able to maintain things at the new house. Yard implements, tools, housewares, etc.
This year, my Christmas list is dominated by items that can be used around the house. Here are my top 5 – with a few of them being just for fun.
- 2 stage snow blower: The first thing on my list this year is a snow blower. We live in cold, snowy Minnesota where you're bound to have several big snowfalls every winter. After shoveling our long driveway twice already this year, I'm ready to get a snow blower to cut down on the time and effort required to clear our driveway and sidewalks.
- Rotary Dremel Tool: I don't need one of these but I've wanted one for a while for small projects around the house. It isn't something I'd probably categorize as a need, but if someone wants to get one for me, sure why not!
- Book – George Washington's Secret Six: I love books about historical topics, and this one about a top secret spy ring during the revolutionary war looks to be a page-turner.
- Family game – Ticket To Ride: We love some of the non-traditional games like Settlers of Catan, Carcassonne and others. This game was recently suggested to us by friends, and after playing it on my Android tablet, I'm hooked.
- AeroPress coffee and espresso maker: My brother has made me coffee with one of these plunger type coffee makers, and they do seem to make a good cup of coffee. You know bloggers love coffee.
