For those of you back home in America who have some sort of motivation to buy me a Christmas gift (Cheers to you, by the way!) here’s my list.
Let me preface by saying that I’m not particularly interested in lugging a bunch of stuff back to the UK only to have to purge it or ship it home before Christmas next year.
- SmartWool socks (American Size 8, UK Size 6)
- iTunes Gift Cards
- Anything in the Cashmere family (Scarves, Hats, and Mittens/Gloves are the safest options)
As a general rule (if you’re not interested in sticking to the list) if I can’t drink it, eat it, or spend it, it’s probably the wrong present for me this year. There is one exception to the general rule, however: Jewelry. I don’t think I need to explain that one.
Also, when you send it, by whatever method and to whatever location, please make sure to include your return mailing address. That’s right, I was raised to write thank you cards. And you better believe they’re not the “Fill in the Blank” cards I used as wee one.
