Question of the Day

What is the best gift you've never gotten? By that I don't mean the most expensive, indulgent luxury item you can imagine, but some little thing that any old friend or lover could buy you without much trouble or unreasonable expense, which would be perfect for you, but no one's ever thought to buy it.

For me, it would have be a set of really good knives. Or cookware. Or a great spice rack. I love to cook, but no one's ever really clacked onto that as a gift-giving idea for me.

Mr. Shakes did buy me one very serious professional knife recently, which I love. He bought it for no reason, other than to surprise me with something special. You have to adore a man who buys his wife a giant knife to say "I love you."
