Digital Magazines?

I love magazines but really feel overwhelmed when I look at the heap of magazines piling up in the corner of my office. Most of them have one or two articles I’ve been “meaning” to read. was one of my best discoveries for 2005.

Their service delivers magazines to you via the Internet. Zinio delivers the same magazine – including layout, text, and yes even advertising – as the print version. You can even search the magazine, highlight text, and create electronic notes.

Great Gifts

7636549 Some of my favorite gift giving sites this year included…
I found a lot of unique gifts in Potpourri’s online catalogue

The seafood spread from Swiss Colony was a hit with seafood lovers! has a great selection of wines from around the world – and they ship throughout the United States. They also offer gift certificates.

One of my favorite gifts was a box of pears from Harry and David. If you’ve never tasted their delicious pears, go order yourself a box now. (Yes, I know they’re a bit pricey, but well worth it!)

For the Sweet Tooth

Chocolate Some of my favorite gifts to give to those with a sweet tooth are...

...Delicious, Fresh (and Kosher too!) Brownies from 

...Any chocolates or truffles from Joseph Schmidt are well received, but the Mosiacs are true works of art.

...In addition to delicious candies See's Candies has a great assortment of nuts and chews (they also have an assortment of Kosher offerings)

...Especially for children or any popcorn lover are the gift barrels from The Popcorn Factory


One of my favorite places to order flowers is from There are a lot of really good florists, but the presentation from never fails to impress the recipient.

They are delivered in a long flower box -- it's hard not to feel special when the courier hands you the box. Inside, the flowers (in all stages of bloom) are packed in ice packs which makes it possible to send exquisite flowers even in the middle of summer.

Only one time did I have a problem with delivery -- the courier company lost the box -- and the customer service from was great! They cheerfully (and without hesitation) sent a replacement.
