Give The Gift That Won't Be Re-Gifted
We are not all lucky enough to get the coolest gifts during the holidays. Whether we like it or not, we must smile when Grandma sends us over her hand made sweaters, or Mom and Dad give us the safer version of the item we’ve always wanted, or the loved one gives us…. nothing. Chances are that we won’t be getting Christian Louboutin’s in our stockings this year, nor will we be getting that new Blackberry with a touch screen that’s way cooler than the iPHONE I didn’t get last year. This may be because it is really hard to get people the gifts that they want and decipher what will be deemed useful by them. Truth is, when we don’t have a gifting plan and a buying strategy, we often wind up getting the worst gifts. That is why we have prepared some ideas for your gifts that we hope we’ll get you on the best gift givers list in your family and among your friends.
Gadget Lover: Know someone who has a collection of gadgets? Well, there are probably a few they’ve missed. Add to their collection this year something COOL and USEFUL. This is not the year for gadgets without use. For electronically obsessed, buy the CallPod’s Chargepod. This will allow them to charge every electronically mobile device they have in their apartment without causing the octopus of cables and plugs to explode! For those who can’t possibly live without their cell phone and PDA’s, make sure they are not left without their security blanket! What if their phone disappeared? Make sure they backed up their precious info with the Backup Pal! It’s like a hard drive for cell phones! For the fashion savvy computer geek, spice up their computers with ultra chic accessories. Saitek has an awesome line of computer accessories of themed mouses/keyboards called Expressions.
Food Lover: Who doesn’t love food? There are many great healthy and unique options out there; organic olive oil from Amarilla Deronda or decorated goat cheese from Harley Farms (that also delivers) that just might be too pretty to eat. If they like to make their own goods; how about making their own ice-cream with Cuisine Art Soft Serve Machine or nut butter with a Nut Butter machine ? Neiman Marcus has cool kitchen appliances that will turn anyone into an ice-cream or nut butter connoisseur and reduce the take-out bills.
What holiday is complete without alcohol? Is your family Polish, like mine? Give them a unique alcoholic beverage. U’Luvka that has won many awards; it’s a recreation of legendary alchemical vodka produced for the 17th century Polish Royal Court. The bottle design isn’t bad either 😉 Not fans of vodka, opt for a limited-edition bubbly by Viktor and Rolf. You can’t go wrong with a Rose Sauvage for the holidays. Happy Shopping!
