Amazon has a Cuisinart Pure Indulgence 2-quart Automatic Frozen Yogurt, Sorbet and Ice Cream Maker on sale for just $55.99. That's 61% off the regular price of $145! Shipping is free, too.
I think if you bought this and threw in the Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream and Dessert cookbook (yum!) you would have a wonderful family Christmas or holiday gift all taken care of for $65!
