8.  Gift card to our Friday night date favorite restaurant.

9.  Subscription to Salvo. (magazine)

Re #4: Very true. I'd never heard of Harry & David until a delicious gift package arrived from My Beloved Sandra's daughter on New Year's Eve. Yum.

Pears one of my favorite fruit in the whole wild world. lol. My sister collect 'cat' items. I purchased a beautiful Siamese for her that looks real and actually moves his head every so often. Thanks for stopping by.

My brother gave me a box of pears from Harry and David one year; they were divine. I made a scrumptious pear cake out of them.
