Christmas

Unique Christmas gift ideas for everyone.

Black Friday at Amazon

Black Friday at AmazonYeah, that’s right, Amazon does Black Friday, and it’s a pretty big deal! In my quick visit this morning, I’ve seen deals ranging from 22 – 87% off!

Some of the deals I’ve seen are The Smurfs on Blu-Ray for four bucks, a Dirt Devil for ten bucks, and a big old 60 inch TV for just over a grand, which is over half off! Sales are on pretty much everything from exciting, get your kids bouncing off the wall kind of things, all the way to super boring, like socks and pants.

Here’s their description of what’s going on over there:

Black Friday is here! Skip the lines and shop Black Friday deals from anywhere, even your couch. We have hundreds of limited-time Lightning Deals for you to choose from, exciting Deals of the Day, and savings on your favorite electronics, toys, jewelry and more. These limited-supply deals will go quickly, but we’ll add new deals as often as every 10 minutes so you can be sure to find a great deal!

You can even check to find out what deals are coming up and the deals you’ve missed, just so you can kick yourself. That’s all for now, go spend money…but less than you would normally!

Playstation 4

Playstation 4I’m a bit of a casual gamer, and I appreciate how a little fake life can help take stress away from real life now and then. Word on the streets, and from some friends of mine, is that the Sony Playstation 4 is pretty awesome. That means it would make a perfect gift!

Now, I know you can buy them all over the place, but if you’re reading this, you have the link right in front of you to buy one with two controllers! That’s right, two people can play at the same time! It’s kind of ridiculous that they don’t just sell two controllers at the standard price, don’t you think? I mostly play solo video games, but even then, I have one charging while I’m discharging the other one, it’s a lovely system.

So, go ahead, buy one for yourself, or daughter, son, nephew, niece, Dad (Father’s Day is coming up soon), Mom, pal, boss, or anybody!

Breaking Bad Complete Series

Breaking Bad Complete SetWell, it’s relatively impossible to not have heard about, but in case you haven’t heard, the TV series, Breaking Bad, has concluded.

I’m one of millions of people who really enjoyed the show. This collection comes with a ridiculous amount of goodies. Of course you get all five seasons on Blu Ray discs. The never-before-seen special features tally up to over 55 hours! Also included is a two hour documentary!

The packaging, as you can see, is quite unique. It’s a barrel of goods. That ties into the show, of course, but if you haven’t seen it, I won’t spoil it. Now, if all of that footage isn’t enough to seal the deal for you, there are even more toys included. One of those things is a Los Pollos Hermanos apron. That cracks me up, so random, but such a great thing to include in there.

So mark this down on your list of possible Christmas gifts for people who love to get taken away by a great TV series where they’ll laugh, cry, and get a good surprise frequently.

Giant Minecraft Foam Creeper

Giant Minecraft Foam CreeperThe sun’s about to go down and you should be heading back home, but you need three more birch woods to make a stack! Chopping furiously, your iron axe breaks. The only thing left to do is use your shovel or go at it kung fu style.

Punching furiously, the sun has all but a few pixels below the horizon and you can hear the spiders and zombies coming out. It’s time to make a break for it. Only a few dozen yards out you can see the square patch of torches illuminating the night, casting silhouettes of shambling creatures prowling the edges of your fence. There’s no way you can get past them without taking damage and all that tree cutting has left you hungry.

Thankfully, there’s a mine that you connected your house that’s just behind a nearby hill. Wait! What’s that? “SsSsssSsSS…” It’s too late; you don’t even bother moving. Respawn or Exit to Title Screen?

Product Specifications Foam Creeper for fans of Minecraft Made of EVA foam As much articulation as an 8-bit Creeper could and should have Frighteningly huge and detailed Invented at ThinkGeek! Officially licensed Minecraft collectible Dimensions: 2 feet tall!

Clocky

ClockyKnow somebody who has trouble waking up? Do they even constantly lose the battle with the alarm clock snooze button? Well, you can help them become more punctual in an entertaining way with Clocky!

Here’s how the little guy works. You choose the length of the snooze time from 0 to 9 minutes. Clocky will let you snooze one time. The next time you hit snooze, it’s go time! Clocky will bail off of the nightstand (or any surface safely dropping up to 3 feet) onto your carpet or hard floor and look for a hiding spot, beeping all along the way. The sheer frustration is sure to wake up the snoozy sleeper.

There are plenty of other things Clocky does such as light up the display when you hit snooze when the alarm isn’t activated, warn you well in advance when the battery is low, and can even be put into stationary mode if you don’t want to chase him the next morning.

Help wake that sleepy head up!

Transformers Movie 2 Bumblebee Role Play Helmet

Transformers Movie 2 Bumblebee Role Play HelmetWell this is awesome. You can give a lucky kid the chance to be the hero Transformer from the latest movies! I still remember my Optimus Prime transformer I had growing up. I don’t remember Bumblebee, but he’s the favorite today for sure. This helmet is pretty sweet. Here’s some highlights of the mask/helmet:

  • Awesome helmet remixes your voice just like the BUMBLEBEE voice from the TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN movie and features cool conversion sounds and movie-voice phrases.
  • Suit up just like the BUMBLEBEE character and prepare to save the universe with your amazing voice-mixer helmet.
  • Easy-to-adjust straps help you get a comfortable fit.
  • The helmet also plays realistic conversion sounds of the BUMBLEBEE.
  • Three different modes and awesome electronic features.

Zhu Zhu Pets Hamsters

Zhu Zhu Pets HamsterBlack Friday 2009 is almost here, so I figured I’d put up some hot sellers for this year. Today we’ve got the Zhu Zhu Pets Hamster. This little dude looks a lot like a real hamster, except it’s yellow and won’t die after a week of wrestling around with kids! I really don’t know much about these except that you can get all kinds of pretty awesome contraptions for these little furballs to run around in.

The links on this post will take you to Amazon’s page of all things by Zhu Zhu Pets. So make all the kids happy by getting them a hamster playground with non-stinking battery powered hamsters!

Walt Disney Collectibles and Gifts, Disney FigurinesSince opening this blog a couple years back, I have moved to Central Florida, which is where the magical land of Disney World resides. With Christmas coming up soon, many little girls want nothing more than some great little gifts from Disney.

This is the real stuff too, no rip offs here. Due to that, the prices are gonna make the purchase count, but the face of the recipient should be well worth it!

So head on over to check out the full line of Disney collectibles.

Christmas Photo Cards at TinyPrints.com

Christmas Photo CardsTinyPrints.com has just under 100 unique styles of personalized photo Christmas Cards available. The particular one pictured there is called December Tea.

I think it’s a great way to add some style to the pile of cheesy Christmas cards that are sure to show up in many mailboxes across the country. There are a good many different styles and color schemes. There are also a whole bunch of Happy Holidays cards to pick from.

That reminds me of another random tangent story. A good friend back home and his fellow associates came up with the most unoffensive holiday season greeting to use: “Peaceful Solstice!” I don’t believe there is any chance that a person could be offended by hearing someone say “Peaceful Solstice,” so feel free to use it!

Worry Box Angels

Worry Box AngelsThese elegant angels come in sets of two in their own worry box. A worry box is something that you use to make a wish come true. You write down a wish on a piece of paper, put it in the box, and it gets delivered to the heavens, according to word on the streets.

The guardian angel figurines inside this musical worry box have serenely beautiful faces, outstretched wings and pastel accents; the angel figurines can be easily removed, to help share your problems and ease your cares. Like sparkling stars, glittering glass jewels add heavenly sparkle to this elegant music box. Hand-applied embellishments of shimmering platinum adorn the angels and the exterior of this beautiful musical guardian angel worry box.

Quite the fancy little elegant gift idea I must say.

Put your worries in a box here.

Webkinz

WebkinzI first heard about these little plush stuffed animals a few months ago from a girl who is in her mid 20s. She got one recently and can’t get enough of it. Now, they are catered to children, but apparently any age can have fun with them.

Remember those Tamagotchi things around 10 years back? Yeah, I had one of those. It was pretty awesome. It was a bird of some sort, a chicken or a duck I think. Anyway, these are kind of like that, only different. I think this is how it works. You buy the plush pet, which is a normal stuffed animal. Each animal comes with its own ID code of some sort. With that code, you can become a member of the Webkinz World. That is where the pet comes alive.

There’s a short little tour on the site to catch you up to speed about the Webkinz World. It looks like a fully interactive community focused on these little furry things. So you can treat the stuffed pet like any other one you may have, but then go on the computer and see it walking around in a virtual world. Pretty wild stuff. It’s not all fun and games either. There looks to be some educational activities in there too.
