Geekly Weekly: Cyber Monday

I wanted this week's feature to be a double entendre. Everyone talks about shopping on the internet this monday, but how many of them mean shopping cyber on cyber monday? This week we have plenty of great ideas for that geek who already has the gadget but could use a few cool "accessories".

Geekly Weekly: Doin' the Holidays

I hate this time of year. Not because I have some horrible traumatic memory from childhood, but because I hate buying presents. I put SOOOO much pressure on myself to get everyone something they will love that I end up being miserable for at least a few weeks beforehand. For golfers I have made it easy, just get them my Santa Golf Club Cover. For everyone else, you will probably appreciate this week's treasury, a great list of holiday related items that you can give to that special geek in your life.

Undiscovered Gold: girly little girls

When I had my first child, we had no idea if we were having a boy or a girl. My husband and I wanted to be surprised. We bought everything in neutral colors and had names ready for both sexes. Even if we had known we were to have a girl, nothing would have prepared us for the frenzy surrounding one specific girl toy; The American Girl Doll.

Fortunately, The Walnut Rabbit is one of those shops that has your little girl in mind for the holidays. The walnut rabbit is a small workshop nestled deep in the woods of Northern Virginia They begin with an original watercolor of one of the American Girl Doll pets. The image is shrunk down to pendant size and attached to a piece of handblown glass. It is glazed and attached by its loop to a piece of satin ribbon.

The Walnut Rabbit doesn't just dress the doll of your little girl. Each pendant comes as a set; one for the girl and one for her doll. They even wrap it in an adorable little box with a satin ribbon and their mascot on the front.
