When it comes to shopping, window or otherwise, my preference is for books, homewares and fabric. (If they're gifts, then that's even better.) It seems that the more books I cross off my wishlist, the more I add in their place. I was in shock when Amazon (UK) so abruptly ended their 'free shipping to Australia' deal last year. It was a huge blow for Santa. I keep adding and adding to my wish-list, though, for if nothing else to keep me focussed on what I would really like to buy next time I go shopping. (I notice my brother hasn't since added anything to his wish-list; he's gone cold turkey.) This week I've added four new books that look great: J'aime New York by Alain Ducasse, Great Pub Food by Rachael Lane, Kitchen Garden Cooking With Kids by Stephanie Alexander, and French Food Safari by Maeve O'Meara with Guillaume Brahimi. Have you tried any of these?
