Last Minute Gift Ideas from ActiveRain and Me!

Merry Christmas everyone!

For those of you who've been sleeping in a cave, and might be unaware, tomorrow is Christmas.

You've had an entire year to prepare for this day. But, once again, you've put off shopping for those loved ones on your list, until the last moment.

Well, my dear readers, you're in luck. You can thank me later.

In conjunction with me, your humble writer, ActiveRain is now offering its very own Vintage Lunch Box Gift Collection!

For only $19.95, plus shipping and handling of course, you can now get all your holiday shopping done right here in the Rain.

Who wouldn't want the Bob "The Hulk" Stewart Lunch Box under their tree tomorrow morning?

Mr. ActiveRain himself....

Or perhaps you'd prefer a Bionic Kerrie to make your holiday Merry?

Have a Very Kerrie Christmas!

The Greg Nino "Hardy Boys" edition makes a nice gift....

Isn't he cute?!!!

How about a Michael Thornton "Land of the Giants" lunch box?

At least he's a giant in the home inspection industry!

Who can resist the Nick "Happy Days" Pappas version....?


Or the Jeff Dowler "Star Trek" lunch box?

Beam me up Jeff!

Perhaps an Alan "Laugh-In" May suits your fancy?


The Craig "Austin Powers" Rutman lunch box is pretty nice.....

It's Shadelic Baby!

The Amy Hahn-a Montana lunch box makes a great gift!

Amy Hahn-a Montana!

What? You don't do lunch? These aren't' working for you?

How about something from the ActiveRain Sweater Collection then?

The Ed Silva Bells sweater is kinda nice.....

Ed Silva Bells!

And for that really special person on your list, how about considering a limited edition Lenn Harley Davidson.....

The Lenn Harley Davidson!

Well, that's all I got folks. I'm heading out the door to go enjoy the holiday.

I want to wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas.

May all your wishes be fulfilled on this special day.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Craig, Missed doing my last minute shopping here.   Wheels, meals and covered a lot of territory.  I imagine you filled all your last minute orders with some help.

Happy New Year!  I look forward to your new adventures in 2011!

Graig, I just saw this, very creative ...... LOL

But I don't know about the one of Ed Silva.  He kind of looks like he should have his "right ear pierced" in the picture ....... LOL

Andi - Photoshop is definitely a passion of mine. The only thing limiting me with it is my creativity and the massive amount of things you can do with it. I'm still learning how to use it.

Nevin - Thank you sir. I think Jeff liked it too. He used it in one of his recent posts!

Kate - I'm all about the marketing Kate. It's the part of my job I love... lots.

Gloria - Fun video Gloria. That would have helped with the order processing for sure! Here's to a great 2011 to you and Doug.

George - I'm not going there George!

Kathy - Ahh, a Valentine's line of candy. I think you've inspired a new blog post! Thank you!

I totally missed this one. Count me in for the custom Lenn Harley Scooter, but I think she needs some chaps to ride it.

Ellie - I don't know why you just don't have my blog page set as your home screen already! That way you'll never miss another post! As far as Lenn in riding chaps, I wouldn't do that without permission first. But, it would be fun to create!

You're incredible!  That was very well done.  Where do you find the time?  Doesn't Heather get jealous of you spending so much time with your computer?

Georgina - Many of the pictures I create take me only a few minutes. This one took a little longer than most though. But I think it was worth the effort. And don't worry about Heather. She knows the computer is off if she needs anything!

Elizabeth - If you missed this, then you clearly you didn't give out good gifts for the holidays this year!!! I do have a few of these left if you want to make up for it....

It Wouldn't Be the Holidays Without One of These Under Your Christmas Tree......
