Looking for some last-minute stocking stuffer inspiration? We looked online recently and found lots of cool gift ideas with budget in mind. Some of our favourite finds this year come from Think Geek and Fred and Friends. If you’re quick, you can still get them ordered and delivered in time for the holidays.
Here’s a fun way to charge your iPhone: with a tiny festive LED light cable! It’s got 10 coloured lights, weighs 1 1/2 ounces and is 46” long. The Merry Charger’s compatible with iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 5C, 5S and 5 models.
For the ultimate Star Wars fan in your life, check out this cool R2-D2 charger! It’s got two USB ports (each provide 2.1 Amps), enough to charge two tablets at once.
This cute bird feeder brings the iconic summer swing to your feathered friends who’re likely looking for some extra nibbles during the colder months. The ceramic tire comes complete with its own hanging rope. Add bird seed and wait for the birds to stop in.
Your smartphone’s with you while you’re travel, so why not let it light the way for a late-night read in the hotel room or cottage? Made of soft, durable silicone, the Travelamp slips over the smartphone’s flashlight to create a soft, warm glow.
Social media friends (with a dishwasher) will get a kick out of the FB-inspired ‘like’ flip sign to remind you whether the dishes are loaded and ready to go or clean and ready to come out. The sign sticks to any washer surface with a ‘rare-earth magnet’ in addition to a non-staining 3M adhesive. It’s constructed of durable PVC with an embedded steel core.
We’re big fans of the Swiss line Kuhn Rikon after having purchased their ratchet grinder in a San Francisco cook shop last year. This colourful, sharp ergonomic handle gets you a clean cut from a variety of leaf herbs from basil to parsley. The rocking motion is not only efficient but less tiring than a traditional knife. The herb chopper also comes with a protective cover for storing, has a non-stick blade finish and is dishwasher safe.
This is a great gift idea for the baker in your life. Add a seasonal flair to pie crusts with this neat cutter. Here’s how it works:
– Place the patterned insert in the bottom of the frame, then lay a sheet of rolled dough on top
– Use a rolling pin to press the cutter into the dough to create a leaf pattern
– Lift off the insert and invert the patterned dough over your pie
This hand-wash item is made of durable plastic and is 12” in diameter.
