Shopping for Santa



Light up the night and get an upper-body workout at the same time with the Briarwood Brookstone's $25 Twist Light: thirty seconds of twisting the grip back and forth gives you enough power for five minutes of light. It's perfect for car and home emergency kits.

Those who don't have iPods may not realize it, but the original design has now been around long enough that Apple's dubbed it the "iPod Classic." If you're just now getting around to buying one, the Apple store in Briarwood has a leather iPod Classic sleeve for $30. It turns your iPod into what looks at first glance like an expensive wallet but with a digital read-out. If you know people who are always losing the earbud covers on their iPod headphones, stuff bud covers in their stockings. A set of four in assorted colors is $10.

Middle Earth on South University is another great source for unusual, hip, and deliberately kitschy gifts like the Ninja Clock. The body of the clock is shaped like a throwing star, and the pendulum is a ninja suspended in midkick. It's $30. Another favorite is the $25 Hamburger Phone, enjoying a renaissance after being featured in the movie Juno.
