      surely he has a room for a tiny truffle in his pocket!

      1. re: Monica

        I hope so! Would you be so kind as to tell him that I've been a good girl too?

    2. I had been thinking about a tablet, but now I think I'm over it - I get irritated every time I use my husband's iPad, and I would rather just use my laptop and be done with it. So, now I'm contemplating a sausage stuffer!

        I so agree. My husband has two tablets and they are very annoying and very akward to hold it. I love my $300 laptop.

          I do Chanukkah. I want a Samsung fridge with a SodaStream built in. Daydreaming, though.

          Would love a Bosch mixer. Heard they are great.

          Definitely want a new 14 cup food processor, either Kitchen Aid or Cuisinart. These are possibilities. Because There's no one to buy one for me.

          Finally, I really want an engagement ring from my boyfriend. Sapphire would be nice. But any stone will do :)

            Same here! (I do Christmas.)

            My KA food processor has had bits of plastic breaking/flying off for a few months, so I'd like a new one, and although I don't use a mixer often, my Black & Decker (!!!) bought in about '96 is almost completely dead.

            I'd like a new fridge, too, but I'm seriously contemplating buying a new home so I'll wait on that one. If there could only be a guarantee that my current house would sell......:)

      2. Unemployed and on a budget so I just want a bunch of gift cards to local restaurants and shops. That way I can treat the BF to dinners out, treat myself to lunches out and buy myself gourmet snacks. Also we have a small rental kitchen with a roommate means I have no desire for new gadgets or more fancy dishes.

        1. A new knife

          1. We are not religious but do celebrate a midwinter feast. As such, any foodstuffs - preferably in obscenely large feast quantities - are gladly received

            1. I want a meal, at home, with family, where all the Internet-enabled devices are turned off and put away, where the conversation flows like Upper Yosemite Falls in early spring, and the food is as good as I will recall it being next year at this time.

              Happy holidays everyone.

                I'm with ipse.

                1. re: ipsedixit

                  That's doable...just requires a lot of alcohol..=)

                2. I want a stand mixer.

                  I have been waiting to get one for a very long time, because we have a tiny kitchen, and I knew that if I didn't have a place to keep it out, I wouldn't use it.

                  We move into our first home this weekend. I have already picked out the spot where my mixer is going to go. Now I just need the mixer.

                  1. I want to wake up to a bowl of Greek yogurt....sitting at a shared terrace, or a courtyard garden with views over the Aegean Sea at the Captain’s House in Santorini, Greece. Table for two, please.
