Holiday Gift Guide 2006: $400 - $1000

Camera phone pictures are great for impromptu photo ops but not exactly suitable for framing or printing- not so with the Nokia N93 phone, which has a 3.2 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and a 3x optical zoom. $939 from Neiman Marcus. (Mia)

Make like Grant Achatz of the molecular gastronomy haven, Alinea, and serve your sauces and purees frozen, instead of hot with the Anti-griddle. The -30F surface instantly freezes food or flash freezes the outside, leaving the inside soft and creamy. $845 from Cuisine Technology. (Mia)

The Motorola Ojo PVP1000 personal videophone transmits near broadcast TV quality video and in-sync audio over a high-speed internet connection. The video transmission is at a cool 30fps with the default 150Kbps bandwidth. The audio quality is also near perfect with very little delay even over cross-country calls. Its looks are arresting as well - the eye-catcher being the 7-inch LCD digital display mounted over a slender silver stand. All-in-all, an ideal gift to keep in touch over long distances. Available at GadgetBase for around $760. (Kanchana)

The X5 espresso machine kit was designed by Italian architect Luca Trazzi for Francis Francis! Trazzi gave his creation bold sloping lines and distinct angles to great effect. Kitchen appliances are in a rut of black and stainless steel and its getting a little tedious. In a refreshing move, the X5 comes in nine different colors. (Minimalists need not worry, as black is one of them.) The X5 retails for $650. (Ray)

For the person who has almost everything...the Moto RAZR V3i Dolce & Gabbana Phone & Luxury Package. For a mere $899, you can gift this gold tone or silver tone finish phone with the engraved D&G logo. It's the same guts as the Moto RAZR V3 but in a glittery package. Luxury Package Includes:
Moto RAZR V3i Dolce & Gabbana phone,
Metallic gold leather carrying case,
Wired stereo headset,
H700 Bluetooth headset,
Arrives in gold-tone/silver-tone box .

Terrariums are moving beyond the back shelf of your 3rd grade classroom. This eco-friendly one was designed by Justin Parker for Esque, based in Portland Oregon. It stands an ample 18 inches tall and is made to order using recycled glass in a furnace that is powered by wind energy. Branch offers this elegant piece for $945.00. (Ray)

Monster AVL-300 Home Remote: Ive spent some time with the Monster 300 remote; and its a great remote for controlling a plethora of a/v equipment. Programming light switches and dimmers into the home theater setup is just too cool, and it never ceases to amaze my friends. The only downside is that the programming isnt overly simple, so make sure that youre giving it to the technically proficient member of the family. The base remote package is $600, and enough lighting controllers to outfit a single room will cost a few hundred more. (Johnny)

Jack Spade takes the typical messenger bag and gives it the perfect tweak by using a herringbone patterned fabric. This bag is 16"W x 12"H x 6"D, making it just the right size for carrying laptops and its accompanying gear. The Jack Spade "Herringbone - Industrial Field Bag" is available at Nordstrom for $425.00. (Ray)

The Nokia N80 does just about everything. The Quadband EDGE/GSM phone has wi-fi, Bluetooth, a 3 mega-pixel camera and an MP3 player. You can also view MS Excel, Work and Powerpoint files from its hi-res screen. With Nokia Xpress Solutions, print or share photos directly from your phone. Best of all, the N80 is available in the US and retails for $599.99. (Ray)

The Bauhuas Table Lamp was designed by Wilhelm Wagenfeld and Carl Jucker in the 1920s. These lamps come numbered and are certified with the Bauhaus logo. Thie design has also been included as part of the MoMA collection and is sold at the MoMA Design Store for $795.00. (Ray)

An ideal gift for someone who hopes to be the next Eric Clapton but isn't quite there yet. The Fretlight 421 looks and plays like a regular electric guitar, but the difference lies in the tiny red LED lights embedded beneath the neck. Plug the guitar into your computer via the regular USB port and the LEDs light up to show where to put your fingers to play various chords and melodies. Along with software called M-Player, these lights can also guide you through MIDI songs. Available for $599.99 (Kanchana)

Rubber ducks just got a whole lot cooler. The Dark Vader rubber duck, aka Duck Vader, has an incorporated LED that changes color when it comes in contact with water for extra, extra dark fun.

Duck Vader is available for 11.50 from desing3000.

Cereal Dispenser


I take an incredibly long time to wake up in the morning. After I get out of bed, I wander around like a zombie for about an hour, then shower, some more zombie, breakfast, then zombie some more. It takes me approximately 4 hours to get ready, which means I have to get up at 4 am. Fortunately, Vincon, has devised a product that'll shave at least half an hour off my time. Enter the cereal dispenser. No longer do you have to struggle with a box, simply stick your bowl under the device then twist the dial to reveal some cereal goodness. I suppose you don't have to use it just for cereal, you could put anything in there; peas, raisins, Legos, the list is endless.

From Vincon for 14/$28.

Winner of Belkin home office package

Until we started receiving entries for this contest sponsored by Belkin, I seriously thought I could have been the winner if I had qualified to enter. I was proven wrong by several impressive illustrations of what can happen when your office doubles as a playroom or kitchen or laboratory.

It was a close call indeed, but we do have a winner: Kelli Cree from Sunnyvale, California, who shares her office with a 1-year old and a 3-year old. I think this little fact and the photo below say it all.

Congratulations, Kelli!
