It’s back: Our annual post asking which gift made you cheer or cry in complete happiness. (If you don’t believe the latter happens, you should have seen me open up a Dukes of Hazzard TV dinner tray four Christmases ago. It was like the one I had when I was a child. Instant tears.)
The best entertainment-themed present of the 2013 holidays for me was a Sons of Anarchy fleece throw blanket (pictured). Thanks, mom. I enjoy this new tradition — last year, she got me an equally badass George Jones throw.
My mother, for the record, squealed when she opened her signed copy of Joe Manganiello’s book Evolution.
Your turn. What was the best gift you received this year?
Picks from two of my colleagues:
Denise Warner: Do Thomas Keller cookbooks count? He did some voices in Ratatouille AND was the culinary consultant on Spanglish.
Hillary Busis: The only thing I got that really counts is a sriracha cookbook. Please note also that most of the recipes in this cookbook are “make thing as normal; add sriracha.”
And retro picks from stars including David Boreanaz, Dulé Hill, Alex Borstein, and Amber Tamblyn.
