Joe’s Last Gift Ideas

ABC Gift Ideas 2015A bittersweet moment: our Joe, the man who started ABC The Hague, is saying goodbye today.  After more than 40 years of tireless effort and good cheer he will be enjoying a very well-earned retirement starting tomorrow.  We hope you can come by The Hague today to say goodbye to him in person.  Bring a bookmark if you have one lying around – he collects them!

Joe made sure to leave you all with his last bunch of Gift Ideas though, ensconced on his Throne of Boxes:

Gift Ideas from Joe, 2015

Gift Ideas on display in the picture above:

  • Simply Nigella – Nigella Lawson.  Joe has every single cookbook by Nigella, some of them signed.  Big fan.  Big fan.
  • Weekly Planner 2016
  • Game of Thrones: Drogon dragon figure.  Joe is one of the biggest GoT fans out there, and has made sure over the past years that we never lacked in GoT paraphernalia.
  • Cards Against Humanity
  • Living Language Italian, Complete Course.  Joe has some serious Italian food cooking skills.  It’s about time he made it over there and learned from the masters!
  • The Silk Road: A New History of the World – Peter Frankopan
  • Avenue of Mysteries – John Irving.  His bookshelves just would not be complete without the new Irving, first edition US hardcover.

Joe, all the best for everything you’re planning to do next. We’re really going to miss you!
