So while browsing around for that outstanding, original, one of a kind unique and unusual gift that would make me the ultimate creative gift-giver of all time (or at least until the next birthday rolled around) I thought  - hey! Why not blog about it?

So here are a few of my gift choice ideas I have found to be of good cheer

Supershelf  Metal Floating Shelf  

'Supershelf' is a cool floating shelf which gives the impression of a superhero holding the books on the air, preventing them from falling to the ground. The base is concealed by the books and the superhero is attached with a magnet to the base to give the item its dynamic appearance.

Lovely Ladies Books can be heavy-in their weight as well as their subject matter-so why not support those massive masses of words on your shelf with a pair of equally substantial bookends?

Modeled in the spirit of the Machine Age, these retro-classic ladies are no shrinking violets.

 Their strong deco forms reflect their durability and power to keep your tomes from toppling so you can remove a book without worrying about throwing the rest off balance.

   How cute is this ..... tent!

I stumbled upon this by some accident, and thought my brother would get a little chuckle. Little did I know, his response would be ... I WANT IT.  So guess what he is getting for Christmas/birthday ... his own VW tent! Even my daughter shrieked with excitement! (But she's a teenager; it's probably an in-built reaction.) You'll never have to worry about losing your tent in the park again! What will they think of next?


Officially licensed, this stunning four-man (or lady, lol) tent is a deluxe, full-size replica of the iconic 1965 VW Camper Van synonymous with 60s counterculture. It’s so evocative you can almost hear the Mamas and the Papas singing California Dreamin’ every time you feast your eyes on its beautifully breadloaf-ish form. Indeed we half expected Mama Cass to tumble out when we first saw this groovy Vee-Dub. You’ll be the envy of the campsite!

Factor in two zip-separated double-size rooms, allowing couples to sleep/knit yoghurt/spread the love in private, plus an outer that can be put up first to offer some shelter as you erect the other bits and bobs, and you’re looking at the greatest thing to hit the world of boho living since… well, since the original VW Camper Van. All together now, ‘If you’re going to San Francisco, be sure to take your Vee-Dub Camper Tent…

A Quick Spin... VW Camper Van Tent

After watching this vid, my thoughts immediately went to ...... brother, booze, camping ........ and his traveling play tent. I'm hoping to have some great stories to share when he comes back from his next camping trip!

And in continuing with the outdoor theme ....
what about some fun wet water style sports toys 

tons of fun to be had

Need A Hand?
Go 20,000 leagues under the shower with this friendly squid, equipped with nine, adjustable tentacles for gripping your shampoo, soap and washing extras, without disappearing into the bathroom void!

Designed to look like a giant piece of file paper complete with printed lines, holes and red margins on both sides, doodle duvet comes with its own set of 8 wash-out color pens. Which means that you can jot down late-night thoughts, draw a masterpiece, write a story or leave a message – then wash your duvet cover for a totally fresh start all over again...endlessly!
