I Make My Case, Gifts for Phone Lovers

I just heard about a very interesting site that is up for some awards for its unique design, and it’s also filled with perfect gift ideas for anyone who owns an iPhone, iPod, or Blackberry. The site is cleverly named I Make My Case, and actually allows you to custom design an artsy case for any of these devices. A truly unique case is the perfect gift for any of your friends or family who are fans of their smart phone or iPod, because even if they own one or more cases, being able to change them is always fun. This particular site allows you to choose the device, the artist you want to mimic (there are lots to choose from,) and then you’re able to take any of that artists’ designs and doodles and apply them wherever you want on the phone cover. You can even decide how big or small each design will be, making it a truly unique piece of art. You can either design a case you think your friend or family member would like, or tell them to design their own case and you’ll take care of the payment section on the site. Either way, you’ll have lots of fun looking at all of the unique art and thinking of ways to use it on a phone case.

Silver Artisan Jewelry Gifts

I have always loved artisan jewelry, for myself and for gift giving. The women in my life have always been impressed with unique silver artisan jewelry because it is not something you see in stores. I used to buy costume jewelry, but once I realized how beautiful sterling silver can be, I decided to stop wasting money on necklaces and bracelets that would just break or tarnish, and invest in quality jewelry that I find online. Sterling silver jewelry that features stones like Sodalite, Obsidian and Peruvian Turquoise is my favorite, because the silver frames the stones so beautifully. Follow the link in this post to find beautiful sterling silver artisan jewelry styles.

Apple Ipad

The iPad has arrived, after much anticipation from Apple fans. It looks like a larger version of the iPhone, and gives you a clear view of web pages, photo, video, and e-mail. With high-tech graphics and cutting edge technology, the iPad is a gift lots of people will be dreaming about. The price is steep at $499, but it may be worth it as a gift for yourself or someone special. Put it on your wish list!

Low Carb Gifts

Do you have a friend who only eats Smart Carb bread and substitutes pasta with Shirataki noodles? It can be hard to think of a food gift for friends on diets, without sabotaging their way of eating. However, if you keep their preferences in mind, you can actually find a present they are sure to appreciate. Check out the Low Carb Gift baskets at Carbsmart. They have all types of baskets including Low Carb Kosher and dinner for two. Finally, indulgence without the excess of carbs! Your friend will be amazed at how thoughtful you are, and you’ll know you helped him or her stick to a healthy diet.
