    Going to a Christmas dinner party thing tonight. The wife is a close old friend and I know the husband pretty well, but I haven't seen them since LAST Christmas. We still exchange gifts every year, so I know they got me something. I have a few hours to think of what to get them.

    Complications:

    1) They have everything.

    2) A gift card would feel tacky (only in their case -- not in general).

    3) She only drinks a little and he quit years ago, so booze isn't that great an idea.

    I'm willing to spend about a hundy on them. They have a kid who's two, and I'll probably get him a book or something.

    Christmas can suck my ass, because I don't know what anyone wants.

    A very pretty holiday serving platter of some kind is always appreciated, especially for those who entertain

    I was thinking about browsing Williams-Sonoma, but their kitchen is so stocked already. I'm afraid I'll just be getting them something they already have. You think?

    you can never have enough service pieces. If you go to a bakery and get a nice dessert and put it on a pretty platter it would be very appreciated I'm sure

    You should have asked sooner. I have the perfect gift that I know they don't already have. And it costs 100. Pm me I can show you a pic.
