Reagan Gives First Lady a Red Robe

President Reagan gave his wife a red robe and she gave him a horse blanket in the first family’s exchange of gifts on Christmas morning.

Elaine Crispen, Nancy Reagan’s press secretary, said she could provide no details about the gifts.

The Reagans were celebrating Christmas with a traditional turkey dinner at the White House with close friends--the Michael K. Deavers and Nancy Reynolds and her son, Mike.

Deaver and Reynolds were members of Reagan’s staff when he was governor of California and both now have their own lobbying firms in Washington.


Also joining the Reagans for the day were Mrs. Reagan’s brother, Dr. Richard Davis, of Philadelphia, and his family.

The first family will leave Washington on Saturday to spend the New Year’s holiday with friends in California.
