A Very Buffett Christmas

For those of us who own Berkshire Hathaway stock and want to contribute to the company's success with our Christmas purchases, the question always arises what is the best way to do that. Here are some suggestions from the Grouch:

  1. See's Candies -- great gifts for work colleagues who have a sweet tooth.
  2. Helzberg Diamonds -- don't know to get for your significant other, you can't go wrong with diamonds.
  3. Tony Lama boots -- want to bring out the inner cowboy in some suburbanite yuppie, these are the perfect gift.
  4. The Pampered Chef -- for those who want to feel like royalty in the kitchen.
  5. Ginzu Knives -- to bring out the inner samurai.  
  6. Decadent Desert Sauces from The Pampered Chef -- a must for every Santa.
  7. Worldbook Encyclopedias -- not sure why anyone would buy these in the age of the internet, but there might be some folks who these appeal to.
  8. Campbell Hausfeld Power Tools -- you can pick these up at Home Depot or Lowes for your special handyman.
  9. Clayton Homes sustainable living -- manufactured, eco-friendly housing for those in need of a new place to live.
  10. Russell Outdoors Camouflage Hunting Gear -- for the avid hunter.
  11. Fruit of the Loom undies -- no comment needed.
  12. Wells Lamont Work Gloves -- for the tough, work-outdoors types.
  13. Forest River RV -- for those who like take scenic driving vacations.
  14. Spaulding Basketball and Backboard -- for the future NBA star.
  15. Brooks Running Shores -- for those who like to stay fit and trim.
  16. Borshiems Christmas Tree Ornaments -- for those who take special pride in their holiday decorations.
  17. Berkshire Hathaway Activewear Collection -- polo shirts, etc., with the Berkshire logo, for true Berkshire fans.
This is only a sampling of the products offered by Berkshire Hathaway.  It is possible to pick up all your Christmas gifts from Berkshire Hathaway companies and not even realize it.

  1. Interesting. I usually get the See's lollipop thingeys for people - became addicted years ago when a coworker brought them back from Calif. Happily I came across a kiosk selling them at Columbia Mall in Howard County.
