For The Other Friends

Let's face it, if you're like me and have a very diverse group of friends then chances are all of them aren't into everything that sparkles, a highbrow combination of colours, or smack you in the face prints! WHAT? I know, take a deep breath it's okay ... we do forgive them and still love them!  

Here's a different list of items to think about for the semi-fashionista, techie, and gent, amongst other personalities to buy for this magical season. 

Oh, and yes there will likely be a tad more to view in these next few weeks. However, if you are in the beginning stages of holiday shopping there's still hope and extended deals awaiting. So, look on ... and ponder away! And when all else fails, you can always revert to buying something for yourself!

Touch-screen gloves: Why? Because you may still need to tweet when it's cold outside! There's even a pair for the eco-conscious customer.

*Robot Salt and pepper movers and shakers: breaks the ice at any dinner table.
 Fizz Control: When your carbonated water or soda isn't quite right. Solution: buy your very own soda stream. My-oh-my, that's a sleek look for a custom sparkling beverage!

Anti-tension: For those times when you have cupcake urges, get a (stress) reliever from ... A CUPCAKE!

The Contour: Oh yes, this would be perfect for snowboarding season! Full motion shots as you glide down the slopes doing amateur tricks. Well, that's just what I'd use it for ...

  19. I have a lot of friends who dress quite plain. They like my sense of style but fear they can't pull it off. Do you have these friends too? Love the gift ideas! :)
