Speaking of them and gifts, if anyone has a guitar-playing child/spouse/friend/whatever, the guitar pick punch that ThinkGeek has is awesome. I got DS one last Christmas and he *loves* his!! You can take any old card that is no longer used and make your own custom guitar pick. It's SO cool. Functional, and sentimental. DS has used old KTTW cards, used-up gift cards, arcade cards, you name it, and made really cool guitar picks. There's a window so you can line up a specific part of the card (like Mickey!) and punch it out just in the right spot. It's just a really cool gift.

Thank you!!!! My dd will LOVE this!!! Thank you so much for the idea!

The world may never know.
I am allergic to lanolin. According to my allergist, it's a pretty common allergy. So your DH reacting to emu oil wouldn't surprise me, it seems to be sort of along the same lines.

Depends on the type of hangers you are using now. If you're using skinny wire hangers, then it will probably be an equivalent, or maybe even a little bit more, amount of room. If you're using those plastic hangers that come in a bunch of colors, then the huggables will definitely save you room. Personally, they did save me quite a bit of space because I was using so many plastic ones. Also, like another poster said, the material is velvety so it keeps fabric on the hanger instead of some of those fabrics that love to slide off of plastic hangers. Just read the reviews for the hangers - I ended up getting the 'real' Joy Mangano ones from the Container Store (they're sold other places too) because of the consistent reviews regarding their durability. Other brands that were less expensive didn't have the consistent reviews and many mentioned them breaking, etc.

I mentioned this earlier in the thread, but figured I'd post again. If anyone is looking for Tervis, you can get them discounted at www.beallsflorida.com. They have 15% off everything through today, but I have gotten Tervis from them at times when they've had 25% or even 30% off everything, so keep an eye out!

Well thanks to this thread, my MIL is getting a custom made tervis tumbler with pictures of the grandkids while FIL is getting a grid-it thingy. DH keeps mentioning that eviltron, thinks it'd be great to hide at work near the boss no one really likes.

LUSH Snow Fairy shower gel
Mmm it's delicious and bubble gum-y and glittery and is very effective as a shampoo!

We got a great deal on the floor model of the cuisinart at costco but I think we are going to return it. DH doesn't like that it 'squishes' the sandwiches.
