 A Song for the Season 3 (Posted on 2011-01-11)
A poet has just finished his holiday shopping, getting gifts for twelve people, numbered one through twelve. He bought two gifts for each person, but forgot which two gifts those were for each person. Which two gifts go with each person 1-12?

Gifts purchased: wool gloves, a silk thing, stripe ring, shades, some furs, gray ring, Muslim ring, myrrh, visa, swords, asleep king, pens, king words, tan sling, wrench, plumbing, bronze, sun wings, day peas, eclair tea, mole, smart pigeon, diapers, doll.
