Click here for information about this cool little gadget. It is a tiny, light-weight tri-pod that fits on top of just about any plastic bottle.
It is perfect for the photographer on your list... or for someone who is getting a camera under the tree this year! At $10 each, they make the greatest stocking stuffers!

If you have packages to mail, and aren't sure the best delivery option...
visit www.shipgooder.com for price comparisons betweek USPS, FedEx, DHL and UPS. All you have to do is enter your zip code, the recipient's zip code and package weight.
If you are tempted to deliver the gifts in person... to say, your friend in WA (oh, I wish), go to www.fuelcostcalculator.com and AAA will tell you how much your road trip will cost! Phoenix to Seattle would be $200 in my car.

Check out MyStreetSigns for a great and unique gift idea. You can personalize these signs with anything you want.
Mine is going to say... Disneyland 359 mi
One of our favorite teachers at school would love Conway Circle.
The ideas are endless.

- Avoid cutting yourself when slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold them while you chop
- For high blood pressure sufferers: simply cut yourself and bleed for a few minutes, thus reducing the pressure in your veins. Remember to use a timer.
- A mouse trap, placed on top of your alarm clock, will prevent you from rolling over and going back to sleep after you hit the snooze button.
- If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of laxatives; then you'll be afraid to cough.
- You only need two tools in life - WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD -40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
- If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
Thanks to my friend Marie for this great post!

I love Top Chef. I'm not a Top Chef... or even a Middle Chef... but I still think this is a super cool gift idea. I would love one!
However... Bravo TV Online is saying that this $30 apron is sold-out. Maybe for my birthday?

I love this idea. Re-stickable photo frames... WOW!
At the Photojojo store, an 8 pack of these frames is only $20.
I think this is a great gift idea for college students and teenagers... and I can think of many uses in my home for these!
