Cameron Huddleston, the contributing editor of Kiplinger.com who writes the daily Kip Tips column, says:
I haven't even thought about what I would want for Xmas — until now — because my husband and I don't give each other gifts. As a personal finance writer, I figure there are better uses for our money. But, of course, there's a long list of things I would love to have.
- In my dream world, I would ask for a personal assistant to handle all the tasks I feel like I never have time for because I work full time and have two young kids.
- For something more realistic, though, there's a console table ($250) that I've been craving at CB2.com (I want it to go right behind the sofa that is pictured). The price is pretty good but the $80-plus shipping cost has prevented me from buying it. CB2.com has a free shipping offer going on now — but it excludes furniture!
