What To Buy For Xmas at Blenko?

What is your fave item in the 2009 catalog? I want to buy Xmas items and need suggestions.
Every item in the 2009 catalog is a favorite for me. Depending on your budget there is something for everyone.
Not in the catalog but on line - are the medallions, angels, snowmen, and ornaments these would make delightful gifts or filler for a Xmas Stocking.
The 2009 item my parents bought to use as Xmas gift is the green decanter also available in several other colors.
I'll post a photo - the price is about $60.
Try to get down to Blenko on a day someone will be signing or ask that your glass have a sandblasted signature (a small charge for sandblast). This small touch makes the glass much nicer. HJH

Doc Hilary
Do you know about The Collector's Weekly?
Ask them to link to this blog.
I read the entire thing daily, and if you are linked
more efficient
for me
and I'll get you daily instead of every week or so.
Just a suggestion.
My BF is a computer genius so if you need help with this let me know and I'll ask Mr. P

Collectors Weekly is on my fave list also.
Over 2 years ago I suggested you get yourself linked to other blogs.
Act on this, if time is an issue ask someone at Blenko to administer this task.
Your ratings will sky rocket.

Bridget you are off solving middle east health care / legal issues and have 60 vacation days a year.
Hilary is a resident do you remember this time in your life?
60-75 hours of work per week, studying for boards?
Let us ask 'What can we do to help Doc Hilary and Blenko? Not what Doc Hilary and Blenko can do for us." Quote from my fave president.
