Since Daisy's mom does her holiday gatherings at night and mine are mostly in the day/afternoon, we usually don't have to "choose" one over the other. Daisy got a purple purse from her parents. I got some blue dress shirt which I didn't need.
We got their cat Johann a toy that looks like a fishing rod and you can either put the stuffed fish or worm on it. He tried to murder it. So I guess he loved it.
