Editor-in-Chief Sam Grawe: Although I gave up writing Christmas lists long ago, the following is what I would ask for if I were writing to Santa today. I can quite literally spend many hours happily browsing in bookstores, record stores, and video shops (sometimes much to the chagrin of those I am with), and those interests inspired this list. Media has played a hugely important role in shaping who I am, and I love to be surrounded by the things that I like—what I enjoy listening to, watching, or reading. Hopefully there’s something here that will inspire you too.
Not just for sake anymore--these handy little hinoki-wood guys can be used for everything from serving condiments to quaffing Tom Collinses.
