As 2008 wraps up, 2009 is waiting to bring you a fresh start, a new outlook, and another reason to buy some gifts! Sure, the sun has barely set on Christmas, but it’s time to look forward to the new year. Here are gift ideas to help you spread some hope, love and confetti for 2009.
365 Hugs and Warm Wishes
Help someone start off 2009 in a great way with a jar-full of 365 Hugs and Warm Wishes from Pixie Dust. It contains 365 slips of paper with great, encouraging messages that will give your loved one something to look forward to every day of the year.
Confetti Popper Gun
It’s hard to ring in the new year without confetti. Pick up a dozen Party Confetti Popper Guns for $19.99 from Oriental Trading Company and you’ll be the hit of the party. Just make sure you help the host vacuum up afterwards.
Bubble Wrap Calendar
Who doesn’t love bubble wrap? Now you can enjoy every day of the new year with the 2009 Bubble Wrap Calendar. Have fun pressing those pockets of air every day. Just don’t go crazy and pop them all at once.
Ice Shot Glass
Ring in the new year with a nice, cold drink. With Cool Shooters shot glass ice tray you’ll make sure the shots are extra cold. Simply fill the tray with water, freeze and soon you’ll have a shot glass ready for your favorite adult concoction.
Giant Fortune Cookie
Send good fortunes with a giant fortune cookie. It’s a fun (and sweet) way to ring in 2009. Since the giant fortune cookie weighs in at just under one pound and is about the size of a football, chances are this is a gift that will be remembered the whole year.
Many of us set resolutions for the new year to be more organized. Help your loved one achieve that dream with the Life.doc organizer. It contains eight sections to help you compile and organize vital information all in one place. Fill it out by hand or use the included CD ROM to type your information in, print it out, and stash it in your new binder.
