As Seen on TV Gift Extravaganza: Day 3

Hey Guys and Gals, its that time of year again– The glorious over-exuberant, hyper-manic Christmas shopping season! If you are like me and love to lavish our loved ones, friends, and family with gifts and hate going to the mall to fight the traffic….

Hey wait a minute, now that I am living in the middle of no-where in the Great State of Alaska, the Mall of America, one of my favorite hang outs by the way, is over 4000 miles away, I will be forced to procure gifts by alternate means.

I have been known to order some crazy things in the middle of the night from 1-800 numbers and a guy named Billy on TV, so much so that my wife has hid my wallet on occasion.

But this year, I am going to showcase some of the greatest gifts known to exist for sale at 2 am. Yes, my rabid reader, I am going to give you the gift ideas of all gift ideas. So sit back and relax, find those credit cards you stowed away during the Great Recession and warm up your touch-tone (or maybe even rotary dial) phone and order away.

I bring you 25 Days of AS SEEN ON TV GIFT EXTRAVAGANZA!!

Day 3 Gift: Chia Pet

Who could have thought growing “grass” could be so much fun! The legal kind of “grass” I may add.

I got my first Chia Pet when I was a young lad of about eight or so. Its funny how Christmas gifts of yesterday shape our lives. For some it is a train set or a dollhouse or a Red Rider BB Gun with a Compass in the Stock. Mine was a Chia Pet. It was given to me by my grandparents and I loved to watch it grow in the window sill of my kitchen.

But how did it shape my life you may ask? My brother got his very own Chia Pet too and we quickly entered into a competition to see who’s would sprout faster. I spent hours watching the little seeds bud and blossom. I was even known to go downstairs in the middle of the night to add water. So with that pet an over-achieving maniacal Type-A was born…

Don’t you want a Chia Pet for everyone on your Christmas list?

Available today for $14.95 (plus shipping and handling, sorry NO C.O.D.’s)
