Ladies – do you have one of these cordless screwdrivers?  If you don’t – you need one!  I have this model below and I love it.  I owned another model prior to this one that was a good 10 years old (maybe older) before it needed to be retired.  These make fabulous gifts too…especially for those who have arthritis.

What’s nice about this newer model is that you can buy replacement batteries unlike the first model I had.  That said, the first one I owned was when they were fairly new to the market.

If you’re looking for a great starter DSLR Camera – check this Canon PowerShot SX50 HS 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 50x Optical IS Zoom:

We own this camera and only because my 15yo decided she wanted to get into photography.  I was like – seriously? What’s wrong with the camera you have that I bought you a year ago?  “Well Mom, it doesn’t do all the cool stuff you can with a DSLR camera.”  I was like…we’ll see…but I’m not spending a lot of money on a DSLR camera.  I also told her after she kept hounding me – that if we got her one – she’d have to take care of this camera like it was her kid.  She promised she would.

If you’re looking for a great sounding speaker system without the high-cost, I highly recommend this Cyber Acoustics Subwoofer Satellite System (CA-3602).  After buying another model (same brand with subwoofer) at Walmart because I needed them ASAP – which were $15 cheaper and were extremely crappy sounding I might add – I ended up taking those back and purchasing these.  I couldn’t be any happier with my purchase.

It wasn’t but 10 minutes before my daughter just had to hook them up to see what this speaker system sounded like.  It was music to our ears to hear a great sound (especially if you like bass – there’s a booster for that). Plus this system is so much louder than the other set I bought.  Needless to say, we now own two of these systems.  My daughter spent her Christmas money on these to hook up to her laptop.  I can’t say mom is going to survive the latter purchase – I swear the girl is deaf!
