Gift Guides

If you've been reading here for any length of time, you may have gleaned that my husband, Chris, is what one might call a discerning consumer. To be fair, he'd never outright say that a gift sucked -- he's far too gracious and polite -- but he's genuinely the hardest person to shop for in our family. In part...
