Gift List #2 – Make It Yourself

October 11, 2006

Since there are a whopping 74 shopping days left, I thought now would be a good time for the handy types among you to start making your loved ones’ presents. Check out our gift list for some ideas:

  • Operation: Thunder Table is a gift the whole family can enjoy: “a box that can dish out those punishing, chest-thumping tones, yet also function as an aesthetically pleasing coffee table”
  • If you’re not the DIY type but your gift recipients are, how about magazine subscriptions that will teach them how to build a head-mounted water canon, or stitch a robot?

Time-sensitive bonus links:

  • If you’re quick enough, you could order a sumo suit or Stormtrooper armour in time to wear for Halloween, and then re-gift!

As usual, deets are on Paruba (thanks to Donna for the link to Blik). I’d love to know how you get on; should you chose to accept any of the above missions, please send me a picture and I’ll feature it in a future blog post.
