Crazy About Cuff links!

I was faced with the question: What do I buy a Carpenter/Student with his own distinct style? My gift giving answer - cuff links of course.

Some of you may think I am crazy, but I assure you, this gift ended up being a hit.

Now a days you can get cuff links to suit anyone's lifestyle.

For my good friends 30th birthday I decided to purchase him cartoonish chainsaw cuff links by Toronto Artist - Hoi ($36).

The cuff links are brass plated. Icons are enamel colour fill on brass. The cuff links feature strong torpedo double swivel backs for ease of use. No nickel contents.

Before finding these at Toronto store Propaganda (also available online at Shopaganda) I searched the web for several other carpentry related cuff links. Here are some of of my favourites:

Saw and Hammer cuff links ($39.95)
Hammer and Nail cuff links ($29.99)
and my all time favourite:
Phillips Head Screw cuff links ($85)

Other fun cuff links that made me smile are:
Alarm Clock Cuff links
Antique Watch Movement Cuff links
Infinity Cuff Links
Three Monkey Cuff Links

Check-out the online store Cuff Daddy for a wide variety of cuff links, including a great selection designed for women.

Happy Gift Giving!

I have been told ...

I believe gift giving is an art. It requires thought and sometimes a lot of time and patience. Not only should a gift be appropriate for the event, eg. birthday, hostess gift, it should also say something about who you are and the relationship you have with the gift recipient.

Often my friends and colleagues will ask me for gift giving ideas ... and I take it very seriously. I ask them questions about the person (if I don't already know them) and peruse my Firefox bookmarks to see if anything I have seen in the past will work. Yes, I often search sites just to see what new and unique gifts are out there. Call me a gift geek.

I hope you will enjoy reading my blog and hopefully get some fun ideas that may come in handy in the future. Some may not be completely unique, but definitely proven to be gifts that will be remembered and appreciated

If you are stumped for a gift idea - send me a comment with some details about the recipient and I will let you know if I have any ideas. It is strangely fun for me.

Happy gift giving ...
