Gift idea: iPhone chargers 

Makes a good gift for: Techies

Smartphones are everywhere, and whether its appropriate or not, people are on them all the time. There are so many great apps and accessories for smartphones – but the more you use them, the faster the batteries die! So if you know someone who loves their smartphone, you might want to get them one of these small phone chargers, so they can charge on the go!

23 Days Until Christmas - A Festival of Lights - Flashlights that is!

Gift idea: Cool flashlights 

Makes a good gift for: Techies, men, teens, outdoorsy people 

My soon to be father-in-law LOVES flashlights. He is addicted to head-lamps and flashlight alike. I have found that the more flashlights around the house, the better. One under the kitchen sink. One by the front door, one in each car. So here are some solid flashlight options.

The classic: Mag-Lite

Old-fashioned design with modern technology:

25 Days Until Christmas - A Jump Start on New Year's Resolutions

This Week's Gift Theme: Gifts for techies/gadget lovers 

Gift idea: Pedometer 

Makes a good gift for: Someone who is into fitness, or looking to get in better shape (new year’s resolutions are just around the corner) and/or someone who likes little techie gadgets

A while ago I read an article about how a sedentary life style is bad for your health, and how sitting at a desk all day, even if you go to the gym or go for a run, is not enough movement to keep you healthy. So I started to wear an old pedometer that had been sitting in the closet for a couple years. It was big and bulky and kept getting caught on things. So I looked in to what new technology was out there, and I found the Fitbit.

I got one of these little guys:
The fitbit One will track your movement, sleep, calories and much more - $99.95

The Zip, also by fitbit, will track your steps, distance and calories - $59.95

The iPod Nano also has a pedometer built in, so you can have some music while you walk: 

Apple iPod Nano - $149.99

All three of these little gadgets will easily fit in a Twelve Days of Christmas Gift Box
