  3. I would get the little black book of Paris, because my brother has always wanted to go there. Since he can't afford to right now, I would get him this book to so that he could dream about what he would see in Paris while he was there.

    I'd love to have the BUTTERFLIES LAP DESK
    and, of course, the oragami kit. Years back we were unemployed and the kids and I folded oragami ornaments for the tree and it came out beautiful. It's amazing what oragami can create out of used gift wrap.

  27. My daughter, now grown, was interested in origami at a fairly young age. I still had origami items and paper sitting in a drawer from my own childhood, so they were finally put to good use. She started making 1,000 paper cranes, and did make at least 200. I still send her origami directions from time to time, and I would like to send her an origami Christmas set--an item I hadn't heard of, and I know she would like this one from Peter pauper.
