A Few More Gift Ideas …

Still flummoxed about what to buy certain people?  I have the perfect solution that’ll make you, me and my sponsors happy.


A show I hosted a couple of years ago had one of Aquaovo’s water dispensers as part of the kitchen’s set.

That’s when I was first introduced to the truly innovative and completely beautiful filtered water system, Ovopur.

Granted, at $699 it might be out of some people’s budget for a small gift.

However,  Aquaovo’s equally innovative and beautiful hot/cold water bottle is right within most people’s budget.

This water bottle isn’t just a water bottle.  It  has a loose leaf tea/herb infuser built right into the lid!  $27!

For the baby maker or pet lover.  And others too.

Custom personal and pet silhouette portraits.

Just send Patricia a profile picture of a pet, family member or friend and she’ll send you the result.  For cheap!  This custom dog silhouette is only $17!













Some of you may remember my pill necklace from Lost Apostle.  A long bronze necklace with 3 pills hanging off it.  I get more compliments on that necklace than my Tiffany jewellery.

Another favourite of mine is this one … for obvious reasons.  $40.  The best part of Lost Apostle jewellery?  They have 10 pages of stuff to choose from on Etsy, all with …


Looking for jewellery but something a little more refinedl?


She’ll mix and match and do whatever you want with her earrings, necklaces and bracelets.  Silver, gold, aqua, rose quartz …


There’s about a billion things to choose from on Photo Jewelry Making, some as low as $1.99, but the thing that tickles my tummy is the software downloads for making collages and removing the background from images.  If you’re thinking of Photoshop to do this sort of thing, but don’t need all of the other features … go for this $10 option instead.

Looking for a unique gift?

How about getting someone their very own website?  I think we all know someone who would run a great blog, but they just need that little push.

Talk to Wayne from WayLay (We Did Your Site) about the different design options.  I’m a happy customer and several Art of Doing Stuff readers are happy customers too.

I’m not sure why people are so uptight about talking about money, but they are.

If you know someone who could benefit from a lesson in how to manage their money do something about it.

I can’t think of a better gift to give someone than getting them out of debt. Except maybe a hamster that can play the drums.

See that lady down there?  The one below?  That’s Nancy from Your Money by Design.  Talk to her about setting up a package for your debt-bound family or friend.  One time cost of $64.



I think by now you’re all familiar with the beautiful work of Brenda at Cattails Studio.

Forget to order a rolling pin or chopping block after you didn’t win the giveaway?

Go grab one now before they’re all gone.  $50!



And finally … something I have been yearning, YEARNING for, for about a year now. Absolutely anything from Tricia from Rough Linen.

If you’ve have someone very special you need to get a gift for, a mother or wife or husband you should seriously consider something from Tricia’s site.  She hand makes the most beautiful sheets I’ve ever seen out of linen she has specially woven.  They’re wrinkled and soft and drapey and honestly the stuff dreams are made of.  Don’t believe me?  Take a look at these sheets.

And these tablecloths.

They’re everything that’s perfect in this world.  They’re natural, soft, rustic and elegant.

Go have a look at everything because … on Thursday, I’m giving away something from *one* of my advertisers.

Now leave me alone.  My outdoor decorating still isn’t done and December 4th is approaching like a bat out of hell.

    “Flummoxed” – there’s a word you don’t hear everyday! Love all the fabulous sponsors stuff! A little off topic, but the deadline is fast approaching, and this is what I’ve completed thus far: outdoor decorations up, Christmas tree up and decorated, cards completed and mailed, baking done, shopping 98% done and bathroom reno FINALLY finished! Still to do: wrap gifts, make reindeer snax, fashion groovy record bowls, whip up some stink pretty bath salts . . . piece of cake, got it in the bag, nailed it – whoop, whoop!

  2. Louise says:

    All I want for Christmas is a tablecloth from Rough Linen and world peace lol Wrong post but so appropriate 🙂 And if I put it out there, maybe it will be the next giveaway and I’ll win 😀

  3. Angela N says:

    Ooooo I would so love some of the linen sheets and a gauzy white tablecloth. Off to go look for a present for ME. 😉

  4. Gloria says:

    I’m still dreaming of a new rolling pin….they are fabulous…….

  5. Jonna says:

    The pet portrait would be awesome for my aunt – she’s pulled more strays out of traffic than the humane society. Her dog Jasmine just passed away in the last few months, and I know she’d love that silhouette.

  6. Sharmila says:

    WOW… what a list thanks for the opportunity to win I love the sheets they are beautiful and the model as well;-)

  7. Karen @ Feral Turtle says:

    They would all make lovely gifts. I am up in the air with decorating as renovations on our old house are about to start…..too much dust. But I know I will have to cuz it’s the non grinch thing to do.

  8. Langela says:

    Another idea is a photo book from shutterfly. They look so professional and are a great gift for parents and grandparents who have everything. I always include funny stories of the kids from the past year in with the photos. The second book is half price so we always get one for us. The kids love to look through it and I love to remember the stories from year to year.

  9. Janet Thomson says:

    Wow, I have dreamed of real linen sheets for years,,,something to hand down to my children. Also the rolling pins are to die for! Thanks for the links!
