Gift Suggestions

Not everybody you need to buy a gift for falls into a generic category – for him, her, pet, hostess, baby, mother, father…  So, I have started a less-than-typical gift suggestion list for some of those other people who deserve something they will love too!

For the PMSing Gothic:  D.L. & Co and Valerie Confectionshave come together to make the skull-chocolate Mori Ex Cacao, meaning “death by chocolate” which has always been the way I would prefer to die!

For Pocketless Geeks:  A clothes pin USB jump drive from POOR Design that you can literally clamp onto your shirt.


For Modest Girls Gone Wild and friends in the Witness Protection ProgramBlack Bar Sunglasses that protect your identity.

DIY #2: Digital Mix-up


Remember the good old fashioned mix-tape?  It was quite possibly the most personal gift you could give in the 80’s which is why I don’t have the heart to throw mine away even though I no longer have any way to actually play them.

Well, now there is a digital equivalent… Muxtape.  Muxtape is a new site that allows you to simply and quickly make your own digital mixtape (with its very own URL to share with anyone you want). You can create your 12 song “mixtape” by simply uploading any of your MP3s from you computer to the site, which then puts them in a playlist that you can reorganize and edit as you please. The songs can then be streamed by anyone visiting your muxtape site.

Dinner in the Sky


 What to get the person who has everything… except common sense:

Dinner in the Sky

“Dinner in the Sky is hosted at a table suspended at a height of 50 metres, by a team of professionals. Dinner in the Sky is available for a session of 8 hours. It can be divided or personalised accorded to the client’s wishes.  Dinner in the Sky accommodates 22 people around the table at every session, with three staff in the middle (chef, waiter, or entertainer).

Dinner in the Sky may include a second crane with a platform (or more if desired) at the same height as the table, for entertainment such as music, or presentations (i.e. a car).”


(Second crane with the entertainment)


(Look how terrified the jacketless business man is!)

I am not into this… not only are cranes totally taboo right now, I don’t want to worry about being the buzz kill who has the whole party “lowered” so that I can use the ladies room.
