  2. This is what innovation and creativity is about, A graphic designer lost her ability to draw due to Parkinson's Disease, This innovation helped her draw a straight line again! Watch here! Continuing with the theme and innovation check out this amazing creation - a spoon that let's people with disabilities eat without spilling their food, Watch here!

  3. Our grandparents meant the world to us, and losing both of them in the last 6 years has been some of the most difficult time.  This idea of a grandparent and grandchild letter book is brilliant!  It is full of prompts that are exchanged between grandparent and grandchild. You place them in the box for keepsake and then look back at them, a great gift for the generations!

Holiday Gift Guide for the Frequent Traveler

I love putting together holiday gift guides, because I absolutely love buying gifts.  Being a avid traveler myself, The Holiday Gift Guide for the Frequent Traveler is definitely one of my favourite gift guides to put together. Some of my picks are practical such as the electronic luggage scale, travel blanket, passport holder, or the luggage.  And some of the gifts are more thoughtful neat gifts to give a person who has a severe case of wanderlust, such as the clock, print to hang on the wall or the remote controlled Volkswagen.
