Well, "personal gifts" kinda sounds like "adult gifts" (although Agent Provocateur does make an appearance here), but these selections from our Ultimate Gift Guide are a little closer to home. So either buy them for yourself, or drop a strong hint to a loved one. And happy holidays!
Taste of Corky's Ribs & Pork
We order from these guys every year, so we can promise that it's some of the best Q you'll ever have. Comes packed in dry ice (so you've got a few minute's thrill throwing that into a bucket of water), and if you say that" Elvis sent me " while you're ordering on the phone, they'll throw in a discount. Promise.
Thank you. I Love you.
$50 to start; more for more
Want some greetings with seasoning?Thank you I love you will turn your photos and movies into quirky, delightful, charming web movies to send to the ones you love. They also do cards. And games. And basically anything you need. Wanna see samples? Check out Jumping, Angela Eats, or the timely holiday greeting.
This one's easy for those last-minute, no-time-to-shop or wrap situations. The photography enthusiast will appreciate this more and more, as the months (and photos) add up. And, dude. It's 25 bucks. Technically, you should be giving 3 of 'em!
Agent Provocateur Parfum
If the lacy stuff is too expensive, you can still dazzle her with Agent Provocateur Perfume. (Or set the mood with the Strip scented candle for $40). Unbelievably nice scent either way.
Packaged to look like it's floating, this block of magnets turns itself into a bracelet through some clever meandering. Check this out from the catalogue: "Each magnetic link has enough strength to actually move around on the other side of your hand while holding the end of the remainder of the bracelet beneath." Got no idea what that means, exactly, but it's got "bar trick" written all over it.
MATTERIAL Paper Goods
Various prices from $5 to $40 depending on what item
MATTERIAL's collection of eco-friendly paper goods are perfect for to-dos, to-doodles, and everything else worth jotting down. The beautifully designed pads and journals are made from recycled papers and are manufactured right in their Downtown, Denver studio. The perfect present for "designers and other thinking persons."
Gill Championsip Texting Gloves (Nee Sailing Gloves)
Thumb and index finger holes so you can tap out messages while keeping hands warm! Hi-perfomance anti-slip material in the palm will keep you from dropping calls, literally!
Rite in the Rain all-weather field book
The ubiquity of the Moleskine is starting to wear on those looking for some exclusivity. Well, now they can be unique and be outside! Consider the yellow rain-slicker style notebook for a bright change. (Add the all-weather Space Pen for 8 bucks on the same page.)
