Christmas stockings for young and old alike
EAT DRINK LOUNGE PLAY
In many countries tradition demands that all children hang a sock – preferably one belonging to a giant – on the mantelpiece, from their bed or even in the Christmas tree. And on Christmas morning the children (and even some adults) are very excited to discover all the little treasures tucked away in these colourful Christmas stockings! It’s not the price which counts, or the size. It’s those exclamations of excitement, those broad smiles to see so many wonderful surprises. Music CD’s, films or television series on DVD, newly published books, tasty treats, small sports accessories... Children love quantity so make sure that the younger children receive the same number of trinkets in their stockings. Even the very youngest can count and if a big sister receives one more toy than her little brother, there’ll be much loud protesting! And while you’re at it, make the most of the occasion and stuff your children’s stocking with all those little pleasures forbidden during the rest of the year: chocolates, candies, miniature figurines, flashing pens, collecting cards and why not the promise of a trip to the cinema. Adults, on the other hand, prefer quality rather than quantity. Even the smallest objects should be of good quality; make-up for the ladies, a kitchen utensil for the men... Choose a small gift which will last for years to come or one which will soon be eaten up! What excitement there’ll be on Christmas morning to discover all those little surprises tucked away in our colourful Christmas stockings!

A gift-certiﬁcate will always give pleasure Are you short of ideas this year? Are you afraid of disappointing with the traditional Christmas gifts? Why not choose a gift that will allow everyone to choose exactly what they want? And that, of course, means giving a gift-certificate! A world of choice within everyone’s reach Giving the holder the possibility of choosing exactly what they would wish to receive, the gift-certificate opens up a world of possibilities. But, even by choosing to give one or more gift-certificates to family and friends this year, you’ll still have a few decisions to make. After all, you have to make a bit of an effort, right? All the big shopping centres offer the possibility of procuring gift-certificates for the desired value; certificates which can be used to make purchases in any of the stores within the shopping complex. This way, if your mother wants to buy some new clothes, if your father needs some new tools or your little brother is dying to get the very latest video game, their wishes can be granted thanks to your gift-certificates. For cinema fans and reading enthusiasts... However, if you prefer to give a more personalized gift, numerous other options are open to you. Your best friend is an avid reader? Why don’t you offer her a gift-certificate from the local book store? Your better half loves outings to the cinema? Gift-certificates will allow him or her to plunge into the best of what this art can offer. There is a giftcertificate for every passion! Gift-certificate allows the holder to choose exactly what they want.

Gadgets to get the neighbours talking
IT’S OUT OF THE BAG
The world of unusual and amusing gadgets is full of items just made for each and every person you know, no matter what their interests, passions and preferences; it’s a market undergoing stupendous growth. Here, the golden rule is originality! To the one who loves leaving little notes to all and sundry, give a ring which will stamp out the messages of their choice. To the person who lives alone and doesn’t feel secure, give a home alarm which... barks if you touch it! To the friend trying to give up smoking, give an ashtray which coughs when in contact with smoke and cigarette ash. To the brother who can never be without music no matter where he is, give a cushion with integrated speakers to which he can connect his MP3 player. To your work colleague who is always having his pens stolen, give prechewed pens (the ends have fake teeth marks on them) to discourage the guilty parties. For the single person in the gang, a gadget to avoid committing any gaffs on their next date: a bad breath detector! The perfect gift to avoid long arguments between football players is a football which calculates how far it’s travelled. For your friend who is always late, choose a tee-shirt with an integrated clock so he or she will never again forget what time it is. And those are just a few examples of all the unusual items on the market today for... you to discover! Choosing just one gadget out of all the original ones on the market today is really difficult.
