It's the Oxo Hand Mixer. Fairly clever. The beaters come off so you can wash them. The top assembly pops off so it can go in the dishwasher. And it's scaled smaller so it fits in a drawer.

That looks an awful lot like the egg beaters we had when I was a kid, just more modern design.

My entire family is on the east coast, unimaginative, and/or too lazy top pack up a box and drag it down to the post office, UPS store, or Fed Ex Office Print and Ship facility, so I get cash or gift cards.

With the cash my father sent, I bought myself a tool kit because now that I am the only one in California, I can put a tool away and expect to find it again the next time I need it.



My brother sent me a Lowes gift card, which I put towards something I was planning on buying anyway; a pick axe, which I need to dig up some ficus bushes in my front yard and install a hole for planting my new cherry tree.



Plague of Locusts actually sent a gift, but he works in the shipping department so it was pretty much effortless. He sent me a pair of TempurPedic slippers, which are really great when your entire house is either hardwood or ceramic tile.
