I have a red, KitchenAid Artisan mixer. It was a gift from my sister about seven years ago. I recently found out that there is an ICE CREAM MAKER attachment for it. If all caps did not properly convey my excitement about this, then I'll be more explicit: HOW COOL IS THAT?
Right now, it's on sale at Macy's, and then there is a 25% rebate. I think all total you can get it for about $60 or $70.
In my own Christmas shopping news, I purchased my first Christmas gift on Saturday. This was a slightly selfish gift purchase. I know this person will like the gift, but I'm hoping that I will be able to use/play with/read/wear/eat/listen to it as well. No, it doesn't really do all those things, but the person receiving the gift reads this from time to time, so I need to be a little sneaky.
