WordStorm’s Santa Stocking
When it comes to Christmas I do the same two things every year. I am 100 % sure that I am not the only one guilty of these:
- Panic about buying the perfect gift for my family & friends.
- Always, always leave Christmas shopping to the last minute!
This year I am a week or so more prepared than I usually am. Online shopping seems like it may have gotten me out of trouble this year (just) and saved me from self inflicted stress. Fingers crossed that Santa (the postman) arrives before I go on annual leave.
In order to hopefully help Christmas culprits much like myself, I have put together my own mock Christmas Gift Guide of goodies that I am eyeing off for my loved ones. I have also included a few of my favourite online shopping sites that I know are reliable with shipping and have many different gift ideas. God Bless the Internet!
Lug Loc – A gadget any Dad would love!

WineX – For the avid wine admirer! Which is everyone, right?
Sometimes wine doesn’t get enough time to chill. This is why I love Chill n Pour from WineX. Pre-freeze the steel rod, then insert into your bottle of vino to instantly chill it. It also stops little puddles of water that the ice bucket creates.
