Nice bottle of scotch[/quote]
What constitutes a nice bottle? What kind?
Edgy, I do cookies for Christmas (along with a shirt or whatever) and the other stuff on the list (meat, heels) pretty regularly.
The last item…awkward…I just had my cousin here and…well, I probably don’t need to talk about it anymore…I guess. :)[/quote]
FWIW, my bf and I just exchange cards. We discussed it last year and both agreed to not make a big deal out of it. He does get a little something for my daughter, but that’s it. No need to stress about the issue, TALK to him about it. There’s a chance he is stressing about a way to make it special for you as well.
As far as scotch…does he drink scotch? Is he more of a bourbon fan? Does he prefer Irish Whiskey? Is he even a brown liquor type of guy? What is your price range? FYI, for a “decent” bottle, you are looking at about $50…depending on your location, of course.
I’m personally a fan of Talisker and MacCallan for special occasions. If I am just chilling, I might have a Tullymore Dew while the bf likes Jamesons. And my preference of bourbon (while not my first choice) leans towards the “big name” bourbons like Makers or Knob Creek.
