eGifts You Can Buy In Your Pajamas
by Mary Lou
Be creative, shake things up, and give a UNIQUE eGift this year!
No need for your pants, here. You can grab your laptop and order away. It’s no longer necessary to settle for a last minute gift card when there are so many unique gift ideas out there that can be ordered on the same day you need it!
Subscriptions, memberships, we’ve got some non-traditional gifts that will show your loved ones that you care! So, take five minutes and review our list and then, in another five, you’ve got your gift ready to go!
We haven’t gone crazy here. Socks CAN be fun and are making a gift comeback!
Got a friend/relative who is always cold? How about a sweater for his/her feet. FOOT CARDIGAN has subscriptions for every available type of person, male, female, young, old, kiddo or grandma. You can gift your recipient with a subscription and they will receive a unique pair of socks every month (for as long as you keep paying). There are no hidden shipping charges either. What fun!
You can visit Foot Cardigan at footcardigan.com, but it isn’t the only sock-game in town, though. Here are a few other sockalicious subscription sites.
OTL Gift Membershps
I have to be somewhat self-promoting here because I do feel that OTL Gift Memberships are one of the most creative gift ideas around.
Our little seat filler membership clubs are ideal for people who love all kinds of entertainment. We work with the Arts and Entertainment communities to privately fill seats for smaller theaters and music venues. We also offer comedy tickets and other entertainment opportunities. It’s fun to see what pops up and members usually are invited to a few shows a month and never have to pay for tickets.
A $34 (£34 in London) Premiere Gift Membership gives your friend or loved one free pairs of show tickets for three full months. They can reserve tickets to shows they want to attend and never pay for anything.

Hey Mama….get your beauty gene working with BIRCHBOX, subscription beauty products that will get your friends out of that 20 year rut they’ve been in.
We know you’re reluctant to tell them (unless you are really a rude and superficial person – which, of course, we know you are not) that their makeup is so passe. They’ll discover it all on their own, and to their delight, when they receive a monthly box with the latest in health and beauty products.
Members fill out a profile which lists the products they like to use, not by brand name, but by type, i.e. lipstick – cool colors, eye shadow – neutral shades, etc. Men can also join and be sent either sample or full sizes of products especially for them. It’s fun and it’s tactful.
Visit Birchbox.com or check out a few other beautiful possibilities!

Allure Beauty Box
For The Men!
For the fellows. They’ve been around forever it seems. Men say they hate them, but the guys look so cute when they loosen them and sling their jacket over your shoulder. Preferably while holding a martini, shaken not stirred. Is that even possible?
You’re not wondering are you?? They’re ties!
Help your friend build a wardrobe with a subscription tie service like Spiffster. Once a month and the collection gets bigger. They offer bow ties as well.
