If, when asked what you really want for the holidays, your response is always something along the lines of "world peace, reasonably priced jewelry, and a balanced Congressional budget," I sympathize. It's hard to ask for gifts, and remembering what you've seen and loved can be near impossible.
Like most people, I'll be excited for whatever the people I love give me, but this year I've made my list and checked it twice. Check out my favorites and see if they make your wish list, too.
