Aren't we all guilty of it, getting too consumed with all of those labels for the holiday season? I know I am. Today I am going to take you and show you some innovative gift ideas for the holiday season.
I am Calvin Sims with WatchMojo.com. Remember when you were younger, didn't your mother teach you to use your imagination? Well, here I am joined by a very innovative designer, that's taken pretty much a glass piece, with a door stopper, and made this amazing creation that makes a little ding. Now, I know that we can use this for a few things around the house. So maybe this doesn't fit as the perfect stocking stuff, but here we have an instrument that I think is highly essential for around the home.
Now this piece here, you take that old bottle of wine that's kept in the fridge, take it out, and you just set this on your counter top, and I am going to place it down here. Now, imagine we have an old bottle of wine, especially red wine; it kind of loses its touch, well, you are going to pour it through the top here, it's like a funnel, and in fact, what it's going to do is it's going to reoxyginize the wine and give it that flavorful taste. I think that's just about perfect.
This holiday season, it's all about natural fibers and hats. Think of grandma, think of grandma knitting you that hat for the holiday season. Well, we have hats here behind me that are pretty much for all ages. We've got even the cute ones, like the ladybug; I know my nickname as a child was bug.
Cookings for the family this holiday season, as you can see I've got my fairly covered lunch box here, inspired obviously by the North Pole Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus. Now, don't get me wrong really, cookings for the family this holiday season, we have the apron here, lovely design for children of all ages, or maybe the extra petite wife.
