For the lucky few, money is no object. Bernard James’ Cameron Double Wrap Bracelet ($120) and Erica Weiner’s Gold Nugget Earrings ($140) are great options if you have a few more dollars in your wallet.

If you’re feeling super generous this year, keep the QlockTwo Touch ($599) in mind. This super sleek digital alarm clock by Biegert & Funk takes a more artistically simple approach to displaying time. It illuminates words instead of numbers. A more compact version of its much larger and slightly more expensive older sibling, the QlockTwo Touch measures 13.5 x 13.5 x 1.8 cm. It’s ideal for tabletops and nightstands and comes in an array of colors, including vanilla sugar (white), frozen blackberry (purple) and dark chocolate brown.

The creative types on your holiday list spend countless hours hovering over computer screens, running between fabric shops and lugging around bestselling novels and photo equipment. Since they probably fall asleep three feet away from their actual beds anyway, why not get them something they’ll be comfortable in? The mc710 massage chair by Inner Balance Wellness ($699) reclines and features a four-zone massage with three intensity levels, a heated back and a simple modern design. This will get their creative juices flowing again.

    That was a GREAT peice done on 60 minutes about hmseleos families.I am a volunteer director at a Food Pantry in Troy, NY and when I watched your video on Hard Times Generation about the children who are hmseleos/hungry in Florida it really hit home. We too are seeing such an increase in families coming into our pantry looking for help. Many of them are what we are calling The working poor . They are families that are trying to stay afloat in this tough economy and often have to choose between feeding their families or paying electric bills, mortgages, medical costs and so many other bills. We opened our pantry in 2000 and have seen a GREAT increase in just the past year. It is sad to see these parents coming in with their heads hung in shame and asking for help when they tell us only a year ago they themselves GAVE food to local pantries. More months than not we worry that we as a pantry will run out of food and personal products to give to those who come looking for help, but through the grace of God it always comes. We have gone from averaging 25-30 families a month looking for assistance to more than double that in most months. When people come to us and want to know why we do this we usually just say.. We are all one pay check away from being in their shoes, so while we can, we help !
