People keep asking what we need for housewarming-type gifts. The answer is not very much. If you come across something that just jumps out at you, of course, get it. We might need what you find and not even know it yet. 😉 Here’s what not to get: Jane from work is picking us up a Crockpot! Yay! I mentioned that we needed plates to Sue from work and Sister Shelley from Church so that might be taken too.
One idea to get is a toaster. We don’t have a toaster. It’d be good to have a four slot one: two slots for his wheat bread and two for my gluten-free bread. We can’t share a 2 slot toaster because the cross-contamination would make me ill. Other ideas we’ve had, like boxes of ammo, people haven’t been very excited about. haha. Brother and Sister Ford asked Randy what to get us and he said a brick of .22.
We’re just hard to buy for because we’ve combined two households and have nearly every base covered. The things we do need are too big for present purchases. Example: we need a new (or less used than ours) couch. The back of ours has a board poking out. There’s a spring poking through on Randy’s side and Emily ate a hole in one of the cushions. I’ve duct taped it back together (LOL!) and flipped it over so you can’t see it, but I know it’s there.
So if you’re stuck on present ideas, slip my mom some cash because she’s organizing a one-night honeymoon and day spa trip for us. 🙂
