Snapfish has a lot of their custom photo ornaments and other such kitsch on 40%-off clearance. A good time to try them if you have considered such things but not wanted to take the risk. (I saw and liked the porcelain ornament at a friend’s house but am ambivalent about the others.)

I ordered some, despite the strong chance that I will misplace them by Christmas 2009.

I need a gift database program to track things and ideas like this. There are lots of them for the iPhone, but I want to do the bulk of the work on the desktop. Of course, I never even opened my current Excel spreadsheet for this year (a strong factor in how I didn’t give any gifts), maybe it’s not worth it.
