Now that the holidays are coming near. We need some great gift ideas. I like homemade, thoughtful gifts, but I'm also into neat gadgets. One of the best presents I ever got was a poem written for my husband and me. It was a wedding present, printed on simple stationary. I still think about that gift to this day. More recently, I received the Shun Classic 7-Inch Santoku Knife. It is perfect for almost any cutting, chopping, slicing job. Alton Brown uses this line of knives.
