This and That : last minute holiday ideas and much more

Here's the last This and That for 2010 and it's a mega one. I've got some last minute holiday ideas, great gift ideas for your bridesmaids and even a few giveaways as well.

Glam Globes - a ring that resembles a mini snow globe and it's customizable.
This ring makes a cute stocking stuffer or even a great little gift for all your girls at the bachelorette party. It's kind of like a locket, except the ring holds the special photo/picture. Under the globe there is a little slide-out tray that holds a small paper circle with any photo, graphic or handwritten message or special message. You might even consider using this ring as a fun way of asking your girls to be your bridesmaids/maid of honor with the ring. The Glam Globe ring is designed to adjust from sizes 4-11. I wasn't able to squeeze it smaller, but the girls at Glam Globes™ have said they've used pliers to squeeze it smaller. Their saying is perfect . . . "Just create it, swirl it, and shake it". The Glam Globe rings can be ordered via their web site and at select retailers.

Cool-It Caddy - a classic makeup bag with a twist
The Cool-It Caddy is the perfect little bag for keeping your cosmetics and medicines cool - which is a wonderful idea for destination weddings and those during the summer months. It comes in both a woman's version {$39.95} and a man's version {$29.95}. This bag uses an integrated chemical coolant that stays cool for up to 5 hours. Simply pop the entire bag in the freezer until frozen and then add your items and you're ready to go. This bag will keep your lip lusters, sunscreen, snacks, medications and make-up chilled even in the hottest of places.
