Happy Thanksgiving! … now what to get for Christmas?

Truly, I wish you a happy thanksgiving.  According to history.com:

In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. It wasn’t until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.

I urge you to truly keep the origins of thanksgiving in mind.  Tomorrow (black friday) though, the mind naturally wanders to what to buy as Christmas gifts.  I figured that I would offer a few ideas.
