I’m about to get meta here, so prepare yourself. It really bothers me when bloggers/online articles post “gift guides.” Why, Carolyn? They’re just helping a reader out. No, they are advertising for sponsors and/or using your clicks/buys to get free things/money for themselves.
It doesn’t bother me that everything is commercialized as much as NO ONE TELLS YOU that they are benefiting from this seemingly helpful guide full of cool things to buy for family and friends. If you don’t want to be tricked into getting other people free stuff, hover your mouse over the links to make sure it’s not an affiliate link. If it is and you don’t want to feed the beast, just click on over to Google and describe the item (or if the blogger is nice enough to give you the item name, Google that).
You’ll probably be able to find it without being tricked into giving people who sit at home for a living free stuff.
Anyway, I thought I’d post a list of cool things that I think would make great gifts for the holidays. They aren’t affiliate links, and I benefit from this in no way other than to show you these cool stuffs and get a laugh. (A dog will do for my gift, Sean. Thanks. 😀 )
