Last month I posted a riff on what to give as a last-minute present. Some good ideas got thrown around; some bad ideas got thrown out. I just wanted to post a link to this article on Slate confirming my advice that gift cards are the worst gift EVER, and to ask: what was your most memorable gift this Christmas? For me, it’s tough: everybody gave such wonderful presents, particularly Sumer, who shows she knows her way around an Amazon wish list. My parents sent candy and paintings, which are spectacular. All in all, the little notes and cards from family and friends that ended up meaning the most. I’m very grateful for them.
