    My son stopped by one day this past summer and asked, "What's up?"
    I told him I saw buzzards circling overhead so I laid down in the grass playing dead
    and I said, "You know what? I'm 54 years old!" He had a big laugh and I hope, a lesson.

    Whatever it is, it can't possibly be as romantic as my gift to my wife.

    I got Mrs woodchip a years subscription to Essex Record Office online records so she can continue doing her family tree.
    Her brother bought her a set of oil pastels as she likes painting and drawing.
    I got a winter wooley and socks from Mrs woodchip, and my mom gave me money to spend in the sales buying new stuff for the garage from Screwfix.

    A morning in Screwfix with money to spend is my dream prezzie ;-)

    Ding ding- I think this is the winner. Trying to strip down all present-giving holidays as a matter of 1) reducing "stuff" and 2) making it about time together. What better way than to actually strip down in the process?

    Exactly. Its about spending time together:

    "You know, that new dishwasher is going to save about 6-7 minutes a day, so you'll have more time to take care of me!"
    "Six minutes? What, are we gonna do it twice?"

    Well, more of a boxing day gift, but my Fil brought over a dulcimer for my wife and I. I have to say, its a pretty cool sounding instrument, and might even like it more than my fiddle.
    So, now in our household with three kids, we have a piano, guitar, 2 ukleles, a mandolin, harmonical, drum set, recorder, banjo, fiddle and now a dulcimer. At least if we can't play them all, we can make a meseum, lol.
    My best gift was my wife being home from the hospital on Xmas eve and morning.
    happy boxing day folks.
