Gift Guide 2010 #10 – Minimalist Edition

Who needs more dust collectors? Not me. (Except for books. Books are always good.) This is the minimalist edition of the Gift Guide series. Everything is edible, disposable, or functional.

  1. Huey Fong Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce (28oz) (This is the king of all hot sauces and a staple in any proper Asian restaurant in the city.)
  2. Sarabeth's Orange Apricot Marmalade (On a nice piece of toast in the morning.)
  3. A wine of the month club (It's good for your heart.)
  4. Tickets for a show.
  5. The New Yorker subscription

  1. This isn’t exactly minimalist in the same way, but we’ve gone over to only doing individual Christmas gifts for children in the family. Otherwise, each household gets a copy of our yearly photobook (courtesy of Walgreens or Walmart or Snapfish or whoever). We sweat over choosing photos and editing the photobook over Thanksgiving, and then the Christmas gift shopping is practically done.


  2. Yum. A little goes a long way with the rooster hot sauce! Also, MaePloy (sweet!) and Hoisin sauce for your Cantonese/Vietnamese food needs.
    I am hungry.


  3. We’ve largely gone the route of no gifts for adults at all. And, we’ve discovered that after they reached their teens, that gift cards/hard cash seems like the gift of choice for teens. I’m comfortable with that, ’cause I remember childhood/teenhood being a time when I wanted the power to make my own decisions (and, I wasn’t deprived).
