Who wants to drag out a big sewing machine just to stitch a hem or sew on a button? And better yet, who wants to shell out the cash to let someone else do such a simple job? Just about any of us could use one of these Michley Handheld Sewing Machines, but it makes a great gift for any elderly relative who loves to sew, but can't lift a heavy sewing machine.
This selection of Michael Kors Patent Item Totes have our aunt's name written all over them. We could totally see her carrying a purple one around town while she runs errands.

It features gold-toned hardware that pop next to the colorful patent leather.

Teenage girls are the toughest to buy for around the holidays. No matter what you do, say or buy, it's going to come across as stupid to them. We received a silver locket during our teenage years, and while we didn't wear it often at the time, it became one of our most cherished possessions later in life. You're sure to find one that she'll love in this selection of silver lockets.

This selection of monogrammed totes feature several styles to choose from, all displaying a different letter of the alphabet.
When we think of buying a gift for our mother-in-law, we often think of comfort first and practicality second. We also like to give her a gift that she wouldn't normally buy for herself.

A pair from this selection of cashmere-lined leather gloves is sure to please this holiday season.

If you grew up with Pat the Bunny (or read it to your kids), you'll appreciate this new parody book called Pat the Husband. The book is just as interactive as the classic: You can remove the Velcro pants from the husband and put them on the wife, pull a tab to make the husband nod his head in agreement, and more. Wrap this one up with the Porn for Women 2009... more

The first sites we look at each morning - before mySimon, even - are dailypuppy.com and cuteoverload.com. The latter is a "nonstop parade of utter cuteness," which Time magazine calls its "#1 mood lifter." We're giving our grandmothers (who still aren't online) the 2009 Cute Overload calendar, which is loaded with pages of wiggly nosed bunny rabbits, fuzzy chicks, snuggly squirrels, roly-poly hamsters, baby pandas, the occasional hedgehog, and, of... more
Fancy pants, indeed! ("Fancy pants" sounds a bit nicer than "naughty knickers," right?) Some of Hanky Panky's latest sexy lingerie items have a keyhole opening in the back and a little pink bow. We're guessing that bow might ruin the line of a clingy jersey dress, but she'll be able to conceal - or reveal - it nicely under jeans. We like about Hanky Panky lingerie because it's (relatively) affordable and was designed... more
We used to swear by DKNY tights. They used to last for years. Until recently. Maybe it's us; maybe it's the quality control at DKNY. So we went to Target to get tights. But the Target tights had so much lycra in them that our legs looked shiny. Black tights are not supposed to reflect that much light. So then we picked up some Hue tights. More expensive than Target, cheaper than DKNY, and... more
Keep your hands warm this winter with a pair of UGG gloves. They're not exactly appropriate for dressy occasions (we wouldn't wear them to the opera, for example), but for day-to-day winter activities like shoveling snow, starting snowball fights, and commuting, they look a lot warmer and more comfortable than those Isotoners Mom puts under the tree every year. Choose from a variety of styles, colors, and lengths for men and women. And if... more
The November issue of In Style magazine has a full-page feature called "The Better Sweater" on the perfect cashmere cardigan. The author picked up 11 cashmere cardigans under $250 from big chains and department stores, and them took them to a cashmere expert, who examined them all and proclaimed the Ann Taylor cardigan the winner. Why? Because of its dense knit, tight buttonhole closures, knit (not sewn-on) collar, and smooth hem and cuffs. The... more
Behold the new Apple MacBook laptop. With an Intel Core 2 Duo processor (up to 2.4GHz), a frame made from a single piece of (lightweight, durable) aluminum, a hard drive up to 320GB, and a beautiful LED-backlit display, it might just turn work into fun. The new multi-touch trackpad lets you use your fingers to click (no more button!), scroll, right-click, zoom in and out, and more. And the NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics card... more
How does a 10-megapixel camera - with image stabilization, face detection, a 2.5" LCD, and 4x optical zoom - for less than $200 sound? The Canon PowerShot A1000 IS is the latest addition to the company's "A" series of affordable point-and-shoot cameras. And it comes in 5 "two-tone" colors. For an extra $50 you can get the Canon PowerShot A2000 IS, which has a 3" display and 6x optical zoom.
If all the "cute" rain boots on the market - with their patterns of stars, stripes, polka dots, flowers, animals, skulls, and tattoo designs - aren't your cup of tea (or aren't exactly appropriate for work), we have good news: Hunter wellington boots are now officially stylish, thanks to fashion models and celebrities wearing them at UK music festivals. Originally designed for hoofing it outside in Scotland, these boots come in a variety of... more
