On Monday, the first lady made an appearance at the Children’s National Health System’s holiday event and dished on details of her Christmas shopping after one of the patients quizzed her. “Another President Christmas-present question,” the first lady responded while laughing. “All right, press, don’t tell him. He’s going to get some workout stuff. It’s not going to be very interesting this year, honey. Sorry.” Hoping for a more-inspired gift, Obama asked the child what they thought the president should get; and the patient responded with the most practical answer. Ties.
“More ties?” Obama laughed again. “Ties for you, babe.”
Now that one member of the First Family is out the way, the first lady can focus on daughters Sasha and Malia, but they won’t be too hard to shop for.
