Need Some Last-Minute Christmas Present Ideas?

Sorry for the similar photos, but they are the only Christmas-themed pictures I have!

Okay – I realize that this post basically contradicts my other Christmas blog, but I try to help where I can!

I know that a lot of you are scrambling for last-minute Christmas present ideas and may need some help.  The following are a few relatively inexpensive items for your guy or girl which he or she will almost certainly like:

For Your Guy:

1)  Stanley High Intensity or 5 Watt Spotlight:  these wonderfully-made spotlights may not be exciting but what guy would not want one of these for his car and/or workshop.  You can count on them in an emergency and are practically indestructible!  Available at Lowe’s and probably Home Depot.  Price:  $70 and $40

2)  Air Hogs Hawk Eye Radio-Controlled Video Camera Helicopter:  awesome toy for your guy and/or son.  These little helicopters are easy to fly and can stealthily give you a bird’s-eye view of your neighborhood.  Release your man’s inner pervert by giving him the toy he needs to spy on your neighbors.  Available at Target and probably Toys-R-Us.  Price:  $45

3)  Nerf N-Force Stampede ECS-50:  this pretty much applies to any of the new and exciting Nerf rapid-fire toy assault weapons.  The N-Force Stampede ECS-50 is an amazing toy gun – it comes with 3 18-round clips and is fully automatic!  Watch your kids (or adult kids) run  around the house and kill each other with the same zeal shared between the Germans and Soviets in WWII!  The best part is that you don’t have to deal with broken dishes since the darts are made out of harmless foam rubber.  No blood spilling either!  All of the new Nerf gun systems are available at Target and Toys-R-Us.  Price:  $43 and up

For Your Girl:

1)  Shake Weight:  as long as you don’t mind watching your girlfriend/wife jack off a piece of steel, this entertaining invention actually works and is loved by females across the country.  Its not exciting and could be misconstrued as a hint that your significant other is gaining weight, but who wants saggy arm fat?  Can be found at Target.  Price:  $20

2)  LightYears Jewelry:  okay, this is a store rather than an item and is only available in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area of NC, so it might not help you much.  That being said, LightYears is a wonderful local company located at Cameron Village Mall in Raleigh, South Point Mall in Durham, and on Franklin Street in Chapel Hill.  It offers artistically creative earrings, necklaces, and other jewelry at fantastic prices ($25 and below).  Some of their items are from local sources, but most are commercially available elsewhere.  If you don’t live in NC seek out a similar store near you (one such example is Artcraft on King Street in Old Town, Alexandria, VA).  Pretty much any town has a quaint little artistic trinkets store loaded with all sorts of amusing toys, clothes, and jewelry, so you are not out of luck.  Visit one and I am sure you will find a pair of earrings or a bracelet your girlfriend/wife would love!   Also, you will be supporting a local business, of which I am hugely in favor.

3)  Gift Certificate from MAC Cosmetics:  MAC offers fresh, new colors for roughly half the price as Estee and Lancombe but with equal quality.  I know – I wear a lot of MAC and can personally testify that their products will wear just as long as the other name brands.  For the last year I have worn MAC lipstick, eyeshadow (in part), and lip gloss and have absolutely no complaints.  Your girlfriend/wife will enjoy trying something new and MAC can offer her a wide variety of options with twice the buying power.  I’m sure you will like it, too!

That’s pretty much it!  I wish I could offer you more ideas, but none come to mind at the moment.  I’ll periodically update this post as I find new items to recommend, however.  Also, feel free to write me if you have questions and/or ideas!  Merry Christmas!!!
