Here we are in the home stretch of iMonk’s Black Friday specials, hoping to keep you home from the madness that begins in just a few hours. (By the way, yes, I will be a part of the madness starting at midnight at my Target. If you come to see me, stay in line. Don’t make my use my cattle prod … )
I thought we would conclude with some items you really ought to give strong consideration to buying for you or someone you want to give a nice, well-thought-out, meaningful gift to. (And if you need my address, just let me know! By the way, when shopping for clothes for me, I wear size mammoth-petite.)
Let’s start with …
The Kindle Fire. If you don’t already have a Kindle and you want to primarily read books, get the new $79 Kindle. It’s all you need in the most ergonomic package yet for an e-reader. But if you want to also use your device to watch movies and TV shows, read magazines (in full color), play games and surf the web, then you want the Fire. I’ve been playing with one at work for two weeks now and it is all it promises to be. Smaller, lighter and much less expensive than the iPad. Hours of fun for the whole family! Watch stains fade before your eyes! (Sorry. Got carried away again …)
Victorinox Swiss Army SwissChamp XAVT. I guess those who serve in the Swiss Army have much bigger pockets than other armies. This bad boy has 80 tools available for those strong enough to carry it. Hopefully one is needle and thread to resew your pocket seams. Oh, but I would love one of these. Why? Why not?
Hawaii Five-O – The Complete First Season. Does it get any better than this? Hawaiian setting. Bad guys always losing. Trying to not stereotype native Hawaiians but not quite doing so. Jack Lord’s hair never moving no matter how many bullets fly or how strong the wind blows. Gotta love this. Book ’em, Danno …
MLB Cincinnati Reds Heritage Banner. What better way to show off your devotion to the official baseball team of the InternetMonk than this banner to hang in your entryway? Unless it is with the MLB Cincinnati Reds Protoast. Seriously, I cannot make this stuff up. (And yes, I would use this every single day of my life if I had one.)
Ok. I hope our tips have been helpful for you. Let the massive buying begin. Be careful if you venture out at midnight (especially in my store!). Don’t break anything, iMonks.
