Like many of you, I went home for Christmas. Because my last visit was some time ago, my Dad showed me some of the things he had been working on and completed over the past year. My folks upgraded their television (finally) from a big, heavy tube set to a nice new flat-screen. The problem was their entertainment center was built for the old bulky set and not the new sleek one. What to do with the old piece? He tried to sell it but no takers. He couldn't even get the local re-sale shop interested. So, he decided to re-purpose what was an otherwise nice (and heavy) piece of furniture.
My Dad replaced the outer hinges and made the drawers deeper (they were shallow for holding CDs).
He removed the swivel platform that held the television and adjusted the shelves to a slight incline. He then filled the baskets with his clothes and he now has a perfectly functional "closet."
We are already well into December and the holidays are fast approaching. There are all kinds of lists out there for the hottest gifts or the "must-haves", but today I want to take a look at what it means to find the "The Perfect Gift." For starters, the perfect gift is something uniquely suited to the recipient. A little known definition of unique is, "...not likely to be found at a big box store."
So, with that in mind, let's peruse a few things that might just be the perfect gift for someone you know.
