What for Christmas? Large shoulder or spoke shaves

I have not seen too many reviews of the Veritas Large Shoulder plane. I have the medium shoulder plane and the bullnose from Veritas. Love the shoulder plane, have not effectively used the bullnose yet. Because of that, I am looking for opinions of which to ask for: The large shoulder plane or a set of the new Veritas spokeshaves. I have a spokeshave that I use on occasion. I am always using the medium shoulder plane, but there are times I "think" I would like to have the mass and size of a larger one. However, the spokeshaves would add some versatility that I don't have right now. What say you?

Get a spokeshave kit from Ron Hock and build your own. I bought one from Spokeshave eons ago and made one out of purkleheartless.
I believe that our own Conan The Librarian reviewed the Veritas low-angle spokeshave here last year. DAGS for it. They've fixed the glitch in the advanced search programming for Google Groups Beta now. I saw to that personally. ;)
