Back with the list of my top all time favorite gifts that should fit just about anyone on your list:

Who has not seen the little blue box that is Tiffany's trademark and does not know that something good is inside?  Designed by Elsa Peretti, this heart is my favorite, though it you CLICK HERE you will see a few different choices. This is $65. 

Make it even more special by getting it engraved... but hurry. Hand engraving takes up to 10 biz days, and machine engraving about 5 buisness days.  Machine engraving comes out just fine. They give you a choice of three font styles -- block, script and Roman and a price per letter (first 3 initials $30 for hand, $11 for machine).  

If you can't make it in to the store you can order by phone (800-843-3269) or do it on the website as well. Since it's a heart it can be nice to engrave "XXX loves YYY" or "Susie loves books"

An Old Fashioned Sled -- beautifully built, the real McCoy, for kids or the kid in you!  My husband loved it!  This sled can be bought through a variety of catalogues for about $149 but I go right to the maker.  Right now it's on sale for under $100 (only $7 to ship!). There are many models, and you will yearn for them all.  You can get the family/person's name wood burned in as well for a little extra.  High quality, glossy wood, with durable, smooth plastic runners underneath make them work great. Make memories with this gift!  CLICK HERE or got to

Swiss Army Watches -  By far, still my favorite brand.  They come in al sizes, materials, and price ranges and last forever.  In fact, anything Swiss Army makes is of the highest quality -- suticases, backpacks, their knives, tools and flashlights, and they even have a very attractive clothing  line for men and women.  You can browse the site if there is not a Swiss Army Store in the city closest to you at  or google Swiss Army watchces once you find the make you want and see if you can order it at a discount on one of the many sites that offer them.
