Come Christmas time we are always so busy buying presents, chocolates or turkeys, that sometimes we forget that some people won't be able to have any of those things. The Lady of the "House", (Kate Moo King - Curtis) decided that it was time to give back. This holiday season House of Cool collected money from our little elves in order to support the Shoebox Project.
The Shoebox Project (http://www.shoeboxproject.com/index.html) collects and distributes gifts in the form of shoeboxes to women in shelters in Canada. Each shoebox is filled with items valued at $50 that a woman would enjoy but would not splurge on for herself in difficult times.
With the money collected we were able to donate five shoe boxes, each containing toothpaste, toothbrush, floss, hat, gloves, scarf, a chocolate treat, and a $20 gift card from Walmart.
Ok I know we post allot of silly stuff up here, but lets be real Xmas shopping is uber serious! The malls are war zones and the parking lots aren't any better. I don't know about you guys but I am not ready to get into it with the 75 year Grandma threatening to run me over with her enormous Odsmobile that she somehow manages to park?
Getting to my point, why not spend your free time at home with a glass of < insert favorite drink here > , your favorite slippers maybe some family guy as background noise and turn on your computer. We live in the world of technology now and nothing has made it easier to avoid the crazy christmas shoppers then Online Shopping. You can even shop in your PJ's if you like and you don't even have to do your hair or put on makeup.....or pants! AMAZING!
So we have compiled some neat and funny gift ideas to help you out and if you hurry your butt out of bed and onto your computer chair (for me thats my sofa), then you can get all your gifts delivered before Santa arrives.
On a more serious note, Laptop Bags are a great gift to give! Almost everyone has one and as much as we love those cute little laptop sleeves, one can get some serious shoulder and back pain from lugging that thing around. Also most computer bags are just ugly! I did some research (thank you google) and found some really stylish backpacks meant to help out your body while lugging around your portable office!
