In the past four weeks I have flown on three separate trips out of Atlanta to Kansas City, Denver and Charlottesville respectively. Consequently, I have recently become quite the Hartsfield Jackson International Airport expert, and at this point I even have a favorite Terminal. For the record, Terminal B is the best. Don’t waste your time in the others. I have also spent a good amount of time on airplanes lately, which has given me ample time to pursue one of my favorite hobbies: SkyMall shopping. SkyMall never fails to disappoint, so in the spirit of Christmas, I thought it was high time to use my SkyMall powers for good. I took it upon myself to create the ultimate SkyMall Christmas Shopping Guide for all the people on your Christmas/Hannukah/Chrismukkah/Seasons Greetings lists. You’re welcome.
Paula’s 2010 SkyMall Christmas Shopping Guide
For your frenemy:
“Zombie of Montclaire Moors” – $89.95
A delightful addition to any garden. According to the SkyMall Web site, it arrives in three pieces. I still can’t figure out how that one works.
For your know-it-all friend:
This will shut them up for a long time. Also good for people with large, blank walls.
For your musically inclined friend:
“Learn to Play Banjo” – $199.95
The gift that keeps giving! I think the better question is who doesn’t want to learn to play the banjo.
For annoying younger siblings:
“The Hide N Seek Monkey” – $49.95
Hide the monkey really far away.
For monkey loving fashionistas:
“Sock Monkey Hat and Mittens” – $29.95
The must-have cold weather gear this winter. No monkeying around.
For monkey lovers in general:
“Sling Shot Screaming Monkey” – $6.95
Best stocking stuffer ever? Yes. You can’t go wrong.
For the recent college graduate in need of furniture:
“Basho The Sumo Wrestler Table” – $225.00
Because nothing says “I care” like this timeless piece of furniture.
For your eco-conscious friend:
Tired of wasting marshmallows? The perfect solution!
For people you actually like:
“Blooming Tea Gift Set” – $99.99
Pretty and delicious!
“Matryoshka Measuring Cups” – $24.95
The perfect mix of kitsch and function.
“Recycled Wine Bottle Glasses” – $24.95-$29.95
I’ll take a set of these please!
Happy shopping from the friendly skies! 1-800-SKYMALL. Although actually nobody has Airfone anymore, so more like happy shopping from the friendly ground. Also, I really need to start bringing longer books on plane trips.
