Presents

OK, it’s that time of the year when Owen and Willow reap the benefits of the season. This year, we are going to do things a bit differently. We would really like to focus on gifts for them that can help bring out their creative side. We’ll add more specific items later, but here are some starting points for gifts.

We’ll post more specific URLs as we can, but things we are looking at include: wooden trains (Rootin’ Ridge here in Austin has an awesome train), tree building blocks, globe, easel, forts, and stuff like that. We would really like to stay away from anything that is electronic and makes obnoxious sounds, instead focusing on items that can allow their creativity to grow and blossom. Science related items are also good. Oh, and costume type stuff.
Also, these are the items that have a tendency to keep his interest, and we would like to be able to hand things over to Willow at the appropriate times.

For Papa you ask? Why, let me tell ya..

Kitchen: Olive oil mister would be sweet (so you can supply your own oil), silicone cooking spatula (for using in frying pans, for example, the KitchenAid Silicone Turner).

T-shirts: geeky is great! Here’s an example: http://www.xkcd.com/store/ . The sudo and science ones I like. Doesn’t have to be these as they are just examples. Also, I wouldn’t mind a couple of business casual shirts that can be worn with slacks.

Tech: Portable speakers for my iPod. They don’t have to be completely portable (no plug), but that would be preferable. Mostly, I want good quality speakers, though. The Altec Lansing inMotion IM3C Portable is an ***example***, though not precisely what I might want. It’s a 5.5G video iPod, btw.
