Holiday Shopping: Ultra-Cool Gift Ideas


Oh goodness, it's nearly Christmas and you are hardly done with gift-shopping! I share your sense of mad rush. Like you, I have been scrambling while playing Santa and checking off the shopping list. Generally, I prefer the full malling experiencethere's something exhilarating about being surprised in every shop you step into and being able to smell a scented candle or touch a pashmina shawl. But have you seen the malls lately? Holy guacamole, good luck finding a parking spot!

So, in desperation, I turned to online shopping. Often, if I want some adorable gifts, I would visit Papyrus, Brookstone or AHAlife online. Imagine my surprise when I discovered ultra-cool gift ideas from Amazon! I've pulled some of my favorites in case, like me, you need last-minute holiday gift recommendations. Happy hunting for the perfect gift!     

Even for a non-coffee drinker like me, this one is super adorable! Like coffee and cream, this case cover makes for a perfect combo for your Starbucks-addicted friend's Apple iPhone 6. Venti latte with an extra shot of cuteness?

Sleep tight, sleepyhead! Nothing's cuter than an emoticon plush pillow. It's also a sneaky way to say: Sweet dreams, baby love!

Sure, we may no longer need a watch to tell time as we often have our multi-tasking smart phones to do that, but that doesn't mean we should no longer accessorize the wrist. If you have to delight a watch-loving hubby, do it stylishly with a unique, wooden watch.  

I have a pen. I have an apple. Pineapple! Shake off that viral song in your head and turn your attention to this chic Hawaiian Pineapple tumbler instead. Pina colada, anyone?

Ah, this one is as pretty as the blooming cherry blossoms! Surprise a tea-loving mother-in-law or aunt with a no-spill glass teapot.

Purrr...too cute! Nothing says cozy more than a pair of plush slippers while you sip a cup of hot chocolate by the fireplace. 

Ready, camera, action! Get your YouTube videos in HD with an ultra-cute Polaroid Cube camera.

OMG, I want one! Add humor by giving this Whatever Wall Clock to a friend or cousin who is notoriously late during after-five social meetings or family events.

Elevate selfie-taking with this INSTAX mini camera that instantly prints polaroid photos, which would later make for a lovely wall gallery.

Do you feel the force? Surrender to Master Yoda's wisdom and surprise a Star Wars superfan with this adorable Star Wars pillowcase. Now who's ready for Rouge One?
