For the person who has everything
Seven days left before Christmas! You haven't finished your Christmas Shopping. You have several people on your list who have everything.
What to do? What to do? Whatever to do?
Here at Telling-Secrets, we aim to help you reduce the stress of holiday shopping - especially for that person who has everything.
Apparently, these are actual items one can purchase through an on-line catalogue.
BANANA GUARD - Protect Your Banana!
Are you fed up with bringing bananas to work or school only to find them bruised and squashed? Banana Guard allows you to safely transport and store individual bananas letting you enjoy perfect bananas any time, anywhere.
Lock Cup - Anti-Theft Coffee Cup. Are you tired of others stealing your coffee cup? Well now there's a solution. The Lock - Cup has a hole which prevents most people from using it. Only the owner of the cup can use his/hers shaped key to close the hole.
You love toast, but you always burn it? Than, this invention us for you. This transparent toaster allows you to see the bread while it is toasting so you just have to take it out when the colour is right. This idea is based on a transparent heating glass technology.
What day is today? You don't know? Then you need a Day Clock. It's uniquely designed to keep track of weekly events like your golf day, card night, movie night, and so much more. It's ideal for vacations and cruises when it's easy to lose track of the day.
TOILET SEAT LIFTER
'Who left the Toilet Seat up?' The Peace Maker will end the battle of the toilet seat. Merely step on the pedal to activate the lifting mechanism. When finished, remove your foot from the pedal and the seat gently comes to a rest where it started.
ILLUMINATING CAR SLIPPERS
Do you get up at night to drink water, go to the toilet.... Do you wish you could see in the dark? Remarkably bright LED lights are triggered by your footsteps and light up the floor 30 feet in front of you; ultra-soft plush style are extra comfortable and cozy warm. (Now I would clarify this as a necessity!)
'THE THING' - INFANT PILLOW
The Zaky is an ergonomic infant pillow designed by a mum to mimic the size, weight, touch, and feel of her hand and forearm to help her baby with comfort, support, protection, and development.. The Zaky can help calm your baby and help your baby sleep better through the night.
Whether you want to sit on the sun or in the shade, near the river or under the tree... Now you have your movable bench, to sit wherever you like.
And, last but not least . . .
I found a bug in the last e-mail you sent.................
Here - you can have it back.
Now, if these didn't inspire at least one or two chuckles, forget it (I'm especially partial to the automatic toilet seat lifter, for when our son and son-in-law comes to visit).
If you can't laugh, the person who has everything has more than you'll ever have.
There's an unwritten rule in the cosmos: You can't give away what you don't have.
Perhaps the one thing you can give to the person who has everything is to share yourself and a good laugh.
Perhaps it's the one thing the person who has everything really needs: Not presents, but presence. Your presence. And, the gift of laughter.
And, if you can't laugh, even through the 'holiday stress', you can't really enjoy the spirit of Christmas anyway - because . . . .
Everything is precious.
Everything is simple.
Everything is sacred.
