Anything tea-related would make a wonderful gift in my book. I like doing my own little kits of loose leaf tea + fancy English teacups & saucers.

I also saw an interesting DIY tea canister tutorial: put some loose leaf tea in a mason jar, paint the top of mason jar lids with chalk paint, and then write the name of the tea in chalk.

I used to like Restaurant Week, but I've discovered that many times the RW-specific menus do not include the restaurant specialties. That's why I didn't participate in RW this year. It's also a pain to get a reservation at the popular places.

I offered to babysit for my friends. None of them have taken me up on it yet. I'm hoping that is more a case of the timing not being right / they don't want to impose vs. I seem incapable of taking care for a kid for a few hours. But it could very well be the latter...

I think this is the only area where I was a little miffed. This friend was a part of my bridal party, and my expectations for my bridal party were literally "show up in a pinkish dress, stand with me on my wedding day, and be happy for me."
