Apple Ipad 64G WiFi + 3G

We don’t have one of these just yet but that doesn’t stop us from dreaming and oggling. The Apple Ipad is one of the coolest gadgets to have entered the market this year and is likely to be one of the hottest selling products over the holiday season. So it you’re looking for something cool and money isint really a hindrance, grab the 64GB Ipad model with the Wifi + 3G capabilities and experience the magic.

LaCie XtremKeyAll-Terrain USB 2.0 Flash Drive

LaCie XtremKeyAll-Terrain USB 2.0 Flash Drive

A USB flash drive is almost always a great gadget to carry on you. The greatest characteristic of the LaCie XtremKey 16 GB All-Terrain USB 2.0 Flash Drive is that it is heat, cold, water, pressure and drop resistant (when encased). This literally means that you can take the USB drive anywhere to want to. We’ve ordered one already.


Men's Patagonia Wanaka Down Jacket

Who are we kidding - Canadians need a really good winter jacket. For most, the Patagonia Men’s Wanaka Down Jacket fits that bill. Waterproof, breathable and warm, it’s made of a combination of 2-layer polyester shell (50% recycled) for durability and ultra-insulative 600-fill premium goose down to stop bone-chilling cold. The multifunctional collar design, inspired by a vintage European army jacket, flips upright and snaps closed to seal out buffeting winds. It also has an insulated removable hood.

Injinji Tetrasok Nuwool Outdoor Series Crew Toesox Socks

We can always do with a good pair of socks. The Injinji Tetrasok Nuwool Outdoor Series Crew Toesox Socks help prevent blisters with a seamless construction that protects each toe. Anatomical Molding SystemTM conforms to your feet for increased blood and air circulation. Individual anatomical toe sleeves form a thin anti-blister membrane between toes to eliminate skin-against-skin friction. We’ll be ordering these socks shortly.

Even though there are literally tens more items we could add to this list, we’ve learnt to keep restrict our choices. Trust us, you’ll be glad we did.

Merry Christmas to all.
