One thing that I love to do when giving gifts is to shock the recipient into speechlessness. It's not very easy to do, and it takes a lot of hard work and observation and sometimes sheer audacity and unexpectedness. Anders and I have done a pretty good job of it the past few years when it's come to the kids' Christmas gifts. But with a gift they NEVER expected, from parents who have always said, "No way, save your money, those are too expensive," we managed to shock the both of them into complete speechlessness this year. Everything else they received paled in comparison, including the beanbag chair as big as he is, and the one-piece lounger that Karin has been wanting all year:

We'll never be able to top this one! :)
