We did this this weekend
Found a fabulous urn set at the Sausalito art and wine festival - I was practically in heat stroke at the time so am not sure if it was THAT great of a find - but know we will continue to visit the circuit to finish out gift lists for the rest of the season
Reality is we're taking a 2 week cruise Jan 2 so everyone's gifts are pretty well going to be token this year - thinking of just doing a dinner with all concerned with candles, cigars and gift bags instead.
SO looking forward to getting pampered in the spa for two whole weeks! Working overtime as much as I can between now and then to pay for pampering.
