For those of you who wanted to know what it was I got my husband for Christmas it was. . . cue: drumroll. . .
A Record Player.
(As you can see we are really into technology in this household!) And, yes, he does like his present, and is reawakening memories of younger days with his record collection (not so great for the rest of us, but hey he’s happy!). I was sure that he’d guessed what I got him, but he hadn’t so was actually surprised. Success!
He gave me a lovely pair of brown suede gloves – perfect!
The present that “would be great either for you or for Madison (the cat)” did go to the cat. It turned out to be a running toy hamster in a ball. I think the humans have had more fun with it than the cat, though.
