Gift Guide Day 15 is for all those design loving Weekend Warriors who know their gear looking good on the shelf is JUST as important as how well it performs when needed to save your life, take on the great outdoors, etc... and that pic is of a magical swedish fire starter, but you already knew that.
Gift Guide Day 16 was hand made by Shade Elaine... it is our guide of many G's - the Gorgeously Goth Gift Guide... for our dark sides, our darker friends, or just when you need that extra little something to show people its not ALL happy and shiny around here!
p.s. sorry i didn't get to other posts today ~ its been a week of sheer insanity, and i have been working on a proposal the last two days to no end that i have to show over breakfast at 7AM!!! (i'm sure you may have noticed i'm not morning person...) Also a NOTCOT Radar gallery channel launching today i think... but anyhow, this gift guide should keep you going for the moment!
Gift Guide Day 18 is sponsored by WEJETSET ~ which I told you about earlier when they gave away a mercedes pre-launch... and now they have finally launched! Ready to take on the designer/luxury travel niche... regardless of whether you are continent hopping or just commuting to work ~ WEJETSET is just starting to build up their store to meet all your needs, and for all you east coasters keep an eye out for the brick and mortar store coming soon.
p.s. i just noticed that the links to the previous day's gift guides at the bottom were broken, but now they are fixed!
Wow it's Monday Dec 3rd already, I find it hard to believe how quickly these few months are flying by... for Gift Guide Day 19 (and counting down) here are some goodies from our sponsor, Shop Modi! And for a sneak peek into the future of gift guiding, due to a little planning ahead, you can be sure to look forward to some great designer travel goods tomorrow... fun grooming potions and gadgets... dark gifting... gifts for the designer weekend warrior... and more!
Gift Guide Day 20! This is part two of yesterday's animal inspired guide... and thus plant inspired! This back to back pair are definitely ones i've been tempted to start buying the most things off of so far... well maybe these and the tech one too... well the things i don't already have anyhow!
For Gift Guide Day 21, i teamed up with RUGenius to bring you some of our favorite nature inspired finds, this is only part one, since as far as flora and fauna go, we accidentally filled today with fauna... so part two focused on flora coming tomorrow! And as a side note, i'm a bit disappointed i can't REALLY buy a crocodile for $50, a sheep for $45, or a camel for $175... well i can, just not ship it to a friend as a surprise... loving the Oxfam America Unwrapped initiative though.
Gift Guide Day 22! our sponsor is Balmuda ~ we showed you their X-Base laptop stand a while back, and since then they have launched their new Highrise desk lamp that is worth taking a look at for those on your gift list that live at their monitor(s)... an ultra bright led lamp, with this interesting details i have yet to try myself - "The color emitted by Highwire matches the color of a computer display therefore, the display is not distorted. The light coming from Highwire does not include infrared rays and so emits less heat." Also check out some of their sweet cable organizing pieces available in japan in the guide... and as with all of them, click the products to find out more!
Gift Guide Day 23 is more Mimobots than i've ever tried putting on one page, and it was far too fun to make this sponsored day! (Especially with the new second series of Star Wars Mimobots that just launched yesterday!)... Anyhow take a look at the new guide... my Ramona still hangs out below my monitor, and honestly these little guys are one of my fun stocking stuffer backup gifts - not just toys - not just usb keys - but filled with digital goodies that correspond to your character of choice.
Woohoo! We're at Gift Guide Day 24 (gotta motivate myself, 31 feels like a lot of days) - and today i'm excited to share my picks from our sponsor Audiocubes, who you've seen a bit in our tags the last few months ~ they've been very kind in supporting what we do! And they are our go to store for audio goods and crazy japanese gadgetry (in fact we were shopping there before they even approached us!). And just to get you started on all the goodies in today's gift guide, for anyone who hasn't seen how this freaky Facebank works... check out the video below!
Gift Guide Day 25 and counting down... i'm excited to present the Elsewares page! These guys have been one of my favorite stores since back in 06, and were a huge support when it came to NOTed, our first photoshoot ~ and we lucked out that they happened to be across the street and believed in our experiment as vague as it sounded! Anyhow, check out today's gift guide to see some of my favorite products they're currently stocking! (And yes, they were kind enough to help sponsor the gift guide as well ~ and for any that missed the announcement yesterday, of the 31 days, all of our 9 sponsors get one day where i show you my favorites from there stores, and so you get a chance to see these earlier, this will be a full sponsor week! Until i got nuts with randomness on the weekend again...)
Gift Guide Day 26 ~ are my picks from our sponsor Delight! Since someone asked on the last post ~ just to clarify (sorry i was slow about this, its been a crazy week) ~ all sponsors are stores i already admired and love, and during the gift guide's 31 days i will dedicate one day to each sponsor where you get to see my picks from their stores (*luckily the stores trust my taste and let me do this*). Today, i've filled the guide with products from their Editor's Picks which are always available... but don't forget about their New Arrivals, because Delight launches a new product every day at noon (and keeps them in the store for 30 days, or until sold out, whichever comes first).
Day 29 of our ambitious gift guide features the eco friendly Tope* Wallets of db clay. We've reviewed and shown you the great packaging previously, and after a few months of use, the boys of NOTCOT are still using them, and they are certainly a nice alternative to leather, and for those who like the subtle yet detailed, the gift recipients, it is definitely worth checking out the new Puzzle collection that just launched featuring 500 unique hand printed wallets! You can see some of my favorites in today's gift guide! (Oh, and as always, click the pictures to find out more info.)
Gift Guide Day 30 and counting down... since it's Thanksgiving, in addition to food, that means dealing with family, food comas, heinous traveling... so what better than some gifts (gifts for yourself can still count as gifts) to help with relaxing, distracting, amusing, and ultimately survive the holidays!
Everyone's doing it ~ so here's our gift guide too. Since i've never tried doing this before ~ and apparently i got a bit ambitious in my initial mockup... ours are a bunch of collages, with hand written notes, an exclusive playlist from Burst Labs' "Naughty or Nice", and you can click on any image to go read more... oh, and did i mention i'm apparently going to try to do one of these every day for 31 one days? Weekends too! It's 5am, and i think i just got it all set up... so here we go with day 31 in the countdown (which means we will be ending Dec 21)... so take a peek at our first sponsor Charles & Marie... we have a line up of great sponsors (all friends of NOTCOT with products we love)... and mixed in between will be just some random themes of products we think would make fun gifts (or things we want).
We've all seen and loved the Sun Jar by Tobias Wong for Suck UK ~ in fact its won quite a few gift of the year awards even! But somehow i failed to notice it is also available in BLUE, until i saw it over at ThinkGeek labeled a MOON JAR! So i'm quite excited and craving one of these tonight ~ more images below for anyone who wants to catch up on how the Sun Jar works...
More excitingly... i found this because i just shopping, designing, coding, and hunting through archives to get ready for the holiday season gift guide! I've never really done one before, but since i need to do it anyhow to figure out holiday and birthday gifts (SO many december babies! Myself included), figured this year no harm rounding it all up. In fact we've got some great sponsors lined up to help make it possible as well! (And if you'd like to join in and sponsor the gift guide as well please drop our advertising manager, Jared, a line - jared at notcot.com) Also, if you have any ideas for great products that shouldn't be left out, or think you know what will be THE "it" product of the season, leave me a note!
OH ~ and for those who are starting pre-thanksgiving and need some help ~ in my hunting today i've added more stores to last years post filled with stores for great gifts.
