Wrap up warm for Christmas

It’s Christmas Day (not today – we’re just imagining here). Aunty’s asleep in the chair next to a glass of sherry; Dad’s considering tackling the mountain of washing up; the kids have lost interest in their toys and are being brain-washed by Mary Poppins; and (if you’ve got around to it) next to the front door will be two or three bin bags of ripped up wrapping paper.

Wired hospital

Best Buy is about to take the hospital gift shop into the technology age in a test partnership with Memorial Hospital of South Bend, Indiana. The shop will carry a limited selection of Best Buy products geared towards helping patients and guests stay connected during their treatment or visit.
The retailer will provide items like digital cameras, phone chargers, data cards and sound cancelling earphones, while the hospital will keep a percentage of the generated revenue. If the test turns out positive, Best Buy may roll out the concept to other hospitals around the US.

Surprise ‘me to me’


The problem with self-gifting is that it lacks a certain key element: surprise. So now, a new service, Surprise Gift For Me, is offering to be a personal wish-list shopper so that self-gifters can be pleasantly taken aback by their own presents.

It’s not all reindeer and mistletoe, you know
