Holiday Gift Ideas for Everyone

It is nearly Christmas and I haven't done my gift shopping for my friends and family.  I wanted to make every gift special, practical and budget friendly.  For those who lack the time (and budget), here are some holiday gift ideas for everyone.
For your BFF, Terre d'Oc Indian Beauty Pouch comes with a makeup remover, a mascara and natural lip gloss and sells for only $49.50 in  The pouch handmade by Thai families in Chiang Mai province is so cute, your BFF can use it for other purpose.

For dad, the USB mini fridge and heater will surely melt his heart.  He can work on his computer and sip a cup of hot coffee or cold soda by just plugging the mini fridge in the USB port.  This brilliant invention costs only $32.

For mom who always prepare delicious and healthy meals, Curtis Stone's cooking workbench is perfect.  This chopping board has compartments for the chopped ingredients that actually measures to about 1 cup and a stainless steel drawer for the wastes.  This kitchen mate sells for only $299.99.

For teenage girls who can't have enough girly girl accessories, the Fashion Accessory Gift Set comes with shades, a watch, keychain and a coin purse.  For only $22.95, the set comes in a box which makes this gift even special.

For teenage boys, this telescope with tripod will enhance his understanding of the universe.  With a focal length of 800mm, this is perfect for beginners.

For the kids, it is best that you give them educational materials and my choice is The Very Hungry Caterpillar Pop-up Book that sells for $29.99 and is available at

For the shabby chic aunt, Kaari Meng's French General: Handmade Soirées is the perfect guide for throwing the best parties in town.  Unleash the inner Bree VanderKamp in her because this book is packed with great party decorating ideas from table settings to giveaways for only $29.95.  She will never be dumbfounded for what to do on her next party.
For grandma or grandpa, Anthropologie's One-Lump-Or-Two lamp is the one that will add flare to their home.  This lamp only costs $198... any tea connoisseur would agree that it will bring something special for their tea time.

Learning coupled with singing is more fun for any toddler especially if he is watching the Sing & Sign DVD.  This DVD is packed with 13 original songs and sign language that will surely enhance your bonding time with your kids.  This DVD costs only $21.99.
If your child is showing talent in arts, particularly photography, Vtech's Kidizoom Digital Camera is perfect.  See the world through your child's eye with this camera for only $99.99.

There are lots of things to buy and so much to choose from.  The general rule of thumb when buying gifts, cheap doesn't actually mean savings--buy gifts that will last.
