2010 Holiday Gift Guide

In: Charge It, Donovan

Happy Black Friday everyone. Before you head out to fight the crowds this holiday season, you need to prep and arm yourself with a game plan. Our Gift Guide was such a hit last year, we’re doing it again. Our “2010 Holiday Gift Guide” promises to be bigger than ever and with more options. Whether you have a spare no expense kind of attitude or working with a budget, we intend on give you a varied array of suggestions.

Every day until Christmas Eve, we’ll be highlighting a few products we think would be an ideal gift for the man in your life. This list isn’t exclusive to gay men only. Anyone with a Y chromosone would be happy to receive any of these gifts underneath their tree this year. We have no doubt, these suggestions will even entice you to purchase them for yourselves. Like I always say, one for you, one for me. It’s my personal shopping philosophy.

Hope you enjoy our list of goodies this year, and if you have any suggestions, we’d love to hear them. We’re open to include more options to our 2010 Holiday Gift Guide, so keep them coming.

“Goonies Never Say Die”. Now they’ll never have to in this AWESOME new collector box set. “The Goonies” is easily one of my favorite childhood movies of all time. I love it so much, I want one of these posters in our entertainment area. Over the years, I’ve watched it several times and every time I do, it without fail brings me back to the magic of the first time I saw it. If you’ve never watched the movie, it’s about a group of kids who find themselves on a once-in-a-lifetime treasure hunt. Along the way they encounter a family of bumbling criminals who are intent on capturing them. The family adventure classic is a swashbuckling good time and has twist and turns around every corner with a couple of booby trap surprises.

The Goonies (25th Anniversary Collector’s Edition) isn’t just your average DVD box set. Just like the movie itself, it comes with a bounty of goodies. Not only do you get the movie in a newly remastered version, but you get extras valued more than the doubloons in the movie. Well, at least to this uber fan, they are. Without hesitation, this was an easy choice to include in our “2010 Holiday Gift Guide

Keep Warm With The Pendleton Roll-Up Blanket

In: Charge It, Donovan

Need to find something for someone who loves the outdoors? Let me suggest the Pendleton Roll-Up Blanket as an option. The versatile nylon-backed blanket works for a multitude of occasions. Whether it’s to keep warm watching a sporting event, during your next camping trip or an impromptu roadside picnic. It’s lightweight and portable design allows you to take it anywhere with ease. It was a no-brainer adding this to our “2010 Holiday Gift Guide“.

The blanket rolls up to a compact size and has handles for easy transport. Simply stash it in your trunk, keeping it on standby til you need it next. With winter in full-swing, it might even keep you warm during an unplanned roadside emergency. It’s made from 100% pure virgin wool and comes with dry cleaning instructions. It’s available to purchase on http://www.pendleton-usa.com/ or by calling 800.760.4844 to find a retailer near you. I know if this showed up under my Christmas tree this year, I’d be one happy camper (literally).

PRICE: $98

On November 30, 2010 (next Tuesday) CBS is airing their annual one-hour prime-time (or a little later at 10pm or 9pm central) special of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Donovan and Brian introduced me to this gem of an event a few years back and it has quickly become one of my guilty pleasures. What’s not to love, really? Incredibly gorgeous models strut down the runway in devastatingly beautiful lingerie pieces, for the world to admire and marvel at their beauty. Add to that some incredible performances by today’s hottest music talent and you have the recipe for an incredible night of TV viewing.

Leading up to the event this year, which boasts a performance from the pop-sensation bombshell, Katy Perry, Victoria’s Angels developed a promo video all on their own. In a brilliant spin to promote both the event and Katy Perry’s recent smash hit Firework, the Angel’s put together their own music video for the song, using clips and snippets from the event filmed a few weeks ago.

The show (and music video) is once again showing off their best assets, including two of my favorite supermodels Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio, to name a few.

I’m sure checking out hot sexy toned men is the last thing you want to see after wolfing down plates of turkey and stuffing yesterday on Thanksgiving Day, but what better motivation to get you to work on some cardio today. Whether its running on the treadmill at the gym or fighting the crowds on Black Friday, burn off some of those excessive calories you inhaled yesterday.

Once you shed some of those unwanted pounds, you’ll most likely want to show off your new svelte body. I mean, com’n it’s in our gay DNA. Canada’s largest gay retailer, Priape, has shot a very sexy holiday themed catalogue that shows off their extensive variety of underwear. The store also specializes in DVDs, books, sex toys and anything that appeals to the gay consumer. Check out some of their sexy selection below. For those wanting a more Rated-R look at the goods, download their virtual catalogue.

If you want to get the bad taste left in your mouth from watching “Sex and the City 2″ (seriously how bad was that???), I highly suggest revisiting the entire series to recapture the magic created by Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbs, Charlotte York and Samantha Jones. You can watch all 94 episodes of the series plus both movies in the newly released “Sex and the City: Complete Collection (Deluxe Edition)“. I’m a huge fan of buying box sets of my favorite shows. They’re the perfect remedy for those lazy, I don’t want to get out of bed hangover Sundays.

The new SATC collection contains exclusive bonus content from all seasons, plus an all-new bonus disc featuring 90 minutes of exclusive interviews with Michael Patrick King and the writers. In addition there are alternate endings (huge fan of these), audio commentary, behind the scenes footage, deleted scenes, numerous featurettes and interviews. In other words, it’s a SATC cornucopia of goodies.

Everyone Loves A Hard…Graft

In: Charge It, Gadgets & Tech, Patrick

You know that the iPad is absolutely going to be a hot gift this holiday season – I know it’s on my list! And, like every other fantastic Apple product comes the accompanying accessories to go with it, and to protect it. Also new this season are the iPod Nano and new Mac Book Air, but the iPad is certainly the big one, since it’s the first tablet to come from Apple and it was highly anticipated.

This accessory, called the “Hard Graft” Tilt iPad Case, is a versatile case that cleverly rolls into an adjustable position for comfortable typing and web browsing. When you’re done, it folds back into a slim and sexy leather protective cover when you’re on the go.
