Christmas morning is now a hazy memory; you’ve returned the peppermint-striped sweater Grandma got you, and now it’s time to take that holiday cash and buy yourself a little present.
Tons of after-Christmas sales abound, and most of the best deals can be found online. Check out a few of the prezzies we picked out for you.
iPhone 4 ID Credit Card Cases
Sometimes you don’t want to carry all your stuff, so this iPhone 4 case is ideal since it features a slim slot for a credit card and ID. It’s stylish and only 2.5 mm thicker than the low profile iPhone 4 “Barely There” case. And yes, you can fit it in your jeans pocket. $34.99 at Case-Mate.
We expect all our gadgets to multi-task so why not our soap? The new Jack Black Clean Formula Face Bar & Shave Soap is a 2-in-1 product: a facial cleansing bar but also a luxuriously lathering shave soap. It uses healing botanicals, vitamins and certified organic ingredients, without any parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrance or colorants, so even the most finicky of men will feel manly while lathering. (My husband likes the peppermint extract which is slightly astringent and helps control oiliness.) This overachieving face bar gently cleans skin so no lotion is necessary. $14.00 for 5.3 oz. bar at Get Jack Black .
Your “Starter” Headset : EASYGO
Not exactly an early adopter? The bright folks at Jabra, who just brought you the voice-command Jabra Stone 2, also have a beginners model, the aptly named EASY GO, with basic functions and easy setup. Up to 6 hours talk time and up to 8 days standby time, at a no-nonsense price of $39.99.
We like this stylish line of high end tanks and tees in soft burn-out fabrics for its rock ‘n roll designs and fashion-forward styles. Founded in 2004 by graphic artist Amanda Simonian, Simdog is only available at a few stores but has a rabid celeb following. (Celeb fans include Ke$ha, Kristen Stewart, Mel B, Selena Gomez, and Victoria Justice as well as Ashley Greene.) The name comes from designer Amanda Simonian’s brother, whose nickname was Simdog. After he tragically passed away in a car accident, Amanda started the company in his name and all proceeds go to support his charity. We’re pre-tested the tees for you and the quality is great – no shrinkage or fading. Practice my favorite shopping trick “One for them, one for me” go to Shop Rumor. Around $60.
