    It's Christmas time. Santa time and all that.

    Let's do some virtual gift-giving.

    Post your gift ideas for fellow Ilites. What you would like to gift them.

    Can be Made in China, Made in anywhere, Made by you, cost a fortune, or cost nothing, real or imaginary... it is the thought that will count.

    While out shopping, don't forget to shop for yourself and share that here.

    And don't be shy, feel free to share your wish-list if you have one. :D

    haha... Rihana, what a sweet thought for a forum thread !

    "Taste of India" is perhaps up there with Taj Mahal, for a desi restaurant name.
    I will go shopping for you.

    This is a tiny ( holds about two tablespoons) ceramic beak-‘ed dish. I remember this design from my childhood. This is used to force medicines, especially casteroil laxative, and bad tasting concoctions down a child’s throat. Grandma, Auntie, or some kaam-wali-bai Ayah would put the child (me!) on her lap, throw one of her legs over the child’s to hold the child down, and then do the dirty deed. Sometimes, the child’s nose will be held shut momentarily so that the liquid that is poured down is gulped-in. After the sordid incident, mummy will hold the baby and comfort the bawling baby. The classic "bad cop - good cop" strategy.

    Some Andhra or Tamil person would remember its local name. It is usually made of either silver, or hardwood.

    I had thought that this would be an ideal dish for lining up all the spices, whether they be powdery like turmeric, seedy like cumin or fennel, stick-ish like cinnamon, chili, anise or cloves, or liquidy like vinegar, for cooking a recipe. Especially good for someone who follows written recipes, and suffers distractions while cooking, and yet want to make seemingly uninterrupted dishes.

    While looking for where to get it, I found a cook, who is actually using it for that VERY purpose:

    I want to gift @Rihana a dozen of these small ceramic bowls….
    With my best wishes
    for
    continued uninterrupted joy, albeit interruptions.

    51ABF948-762D-4380-8681-B9C12557FE71.jpeg I would like to gift this beautiful and relaxing swing for my dear buddy geets @GeetaKashyap...
    She can sit on this and relax and also come up with brilliant and multiple ideas to write articles, or draw something, or simply doze off after a tired day.
