Classy Shoes. Classy Clothes.
Classy Bags. Classy Coats. And
even classy doggie gear.

Who are we talking about. We
only know one designer that does
all that. It must be the Donald J.
Pliner collection.

We will do more on Donald J.
Pliner down the road. But this story
is about gift ideas. Gifts for holiday
giving and gifts for anytime of the
year. And since we were on 5th
Avenue we should also mention
that Donald J. Pliner is sold at the
Saks Fifth Avenue department store
and in other fine department stores
around the world.
Immediately above, on stage, is Chronic Future performing "New York City" on Interscope records.
Swarovski set up a little shop in the middle of the street a half of a block north of the Rockefeller Christmas
Tree in front of the AP Building at 50 Rockefeller Plaza. They have Crystal Pendants, Necklaces, and a wide
variety of well priced jewelry items and keepsake treasures for the home or office. But also we should mention
that Swarovski being some of the finest Crystal in the Universe is sold in major Department stores and Jewelry
shops worldwide. Featured below: the exclusive Crystal Tree Top Star. When cared for it will last lifetimes. $140.
The Shopping
When you need a gift for someone you look for some good ideas
in Time (pardon the pun). The watches are from the Kenneth
Cole collection. Kenneth Cole has things for men and women
and Kenneth has stores Nationwide for your shopping pleasure.
Clothes are a good idea always. Featured above is the J. Crew
collection and their stores can also be found in major cities. Just
open the phone book and take a look.
A foot forward. There's an idea. A cool pair of sneakers. These
are Reebok -- the new Pump sneaker that form fits to your foot.
Available at the Foot Locker and wherever sneakers are sold.
The word is that
Reebok pre-released
a few hundred pairs
of their 2005 Pump.
But you have to look
to find them.

A simple Idea
that is many times overlooked.
A really good Pen. There is
nothing like the feel of a fine
writing instrument in any
person's hand. There is
nothing like a Mont Blanc.
Available at upscale
Department Stores
and fine Jewelers
A good look for the man from the Donald J. Pliner collection. Aside from being sold in quality Department Stores,
Donald Pliner also has his own "Concept Stores" in Beverly Hills, Houston, Miami Aventura Mall and Coral
Gables, San Jose, and Las Vegas. Below are some of the Pliner men's shoe collection pricing in the
neighborhood of $250 - $325 U.S. dollars. Buckskin Jacket with Cashmere trim $1400 waxy nubuck pant $675.
Some people may think that Sunglasses are a silly idea as a gift. But if you ask our firends in California or
Vegas if Sunglasses in the Winter months are a silly Gift they will surely disagree. Even people in the Northeast
United States know when there is snow on the ground how valuable those sunglasses really are. So the lesson
is that a quality pair of non bootleg sunglasses as a great gift Idea all year round, for birthdays or holidays. They
are a gift that is not all that hard to find. They are sold in fine Department Stores and Optical Shops everywhere.
The Future is bright ... you've got to wear Shades.
