My mum's hard to shop for before the holidays. A lot of parents are, I'm sure. But with mum, you get no clues beyond the classic, "Oh I have plenty of stuff." When pressed, she might offer, "I liked that candle you got me for my birthday that one time." Any other suggestions are met with the simple, "You know spending Christmas with you is all I ever really want." Same to you, Mum, but I'd also like to get you a nice gift!

Ever walked into one of those 'home cinema' showrooms? It's mad fun.

You wander in, sit on those custom leather chairs. Look up at that world class projector and the crisp audio. You imagine yourself kicking back after a long day at work. Ah, this is the life. You sip on a nice cold drink.

Then you look at the price tag and have coronary.

"So how can I do something kinda like this that doesn't cost $AU400,000?"

Uh, good question.

Exercise routines don't have to be thrilling; ask anyone who slogs through a 6AM workout every day. But even if someone is happy with a dull routine, that doesn't mean they will derive joy from unwrapping a sparkly gift box that contains (yawn) another pair of weights. So try these gifts instead.
