Emily G.- As a photographer who shoots with my iPhone on a daily basis, I wear the battery into the ground before noon on most days. It sucks to have to choose between taking that last, super-epic shot or retaining one percent of battery power in case there’s an emergency. That’s why I’ve been itching for a Boostcase Double Shot hybrid battery case. Plugging into this bad boy would allow my poor phone to recharge one-and-a-half more times (it adds 150% more power), so I can shoot all day without worrying about running out of juice. The best part? It’s incredibly cute.
Kam- I want to be able to share video from the inside of canyons, in the backcountry of Yosemite National Park, from the boulder fields of Bishop, or as I glide through a lazy cove in a kayak. The new GoPro HD HERO2 captures both photos and video, including 11MP time lapse photography. I won't worry about my GoPro while I'm in the water because it's waterproof up to 60 meters! I also really appreciate that the batter is rechargable and I can either wear the GoPro or mount it to my gear.
Emily- I recently got completely caught up on the Game of Thrones TV show (thanks to HBOGo) and I am in love with it. I plan to start reading the book series soon, but I figure the special features on this collector's edition set of DVDs and BluRays will also help tide me over until season 4 hits HBO next year. Plus it comes with a dragon egg paperweight and I can't imagine anything better than that on my desk.
Katie- I have a problem when it comes to bags. No, not purses. Not little wallets. Functioning, awesome bags. Roughly every year, I have to get a new bag for all the garbage I carry with me on a day to day basis. Recently, I saw Kelly Moore bags advertised in a magazine and followed up on Amazon. Obviously, it's a little out of my price range (which is why it would be an awesome gift /subtle hint), but I love these. I like the idea of having a bag I can carry my camera and tablet in without practically wearing a sign that says, "I'm carrying hundreds of dollars in equipment! Push me over and take it!"
Marisa- I've got to have the worlds wonkiest eyelashes. They seem impossible to curl and some naturally point straight down. Instead of continuing to get frustrated, I'd rather just try out this Panasonic Heated Eyelash Curler. While I tend to usually avoid putting heated objects near my eyeballs, these have pretty good reviews and seem very user friendly. I'd love to try it out and put an end to my wonky eyelash misery.
Mandy- I'm not a huge gamer, but I occasionally run across one that sucks me in. If I'm lucky, there will be more than one game in the series (like with Mass Effect) so I can continue my obsession more a while. I recently started playing Dragon Age: Origins, and I love it. (I obviously have a thing for BioWare!) I look forward to continuing with the DA universe in the second game.
Nina- I’ve been having major withdrawal pangs from all things Disneyland related ever since my annual pass to the Happiest Place On Earth expired back in March. But this classy necklace by League of Shadows, which features the parasol girl portrait from the Haunted Mansion’s stretching room, would allow me to carry a bit of Disney magic wherever I go (and for a mere fraction of the price of a one day Park Hopper ticket)!
Aline- I recently found out that my allergies are a bit worse than I had previously thought and I have been looking into air filters on my doctor's recommendation. I have my eye on this Honeywell filter that is very highly rated and removes 99.97% percent of pollutants.
Beth- This month I joined the ranks of Animal Crossing: New Leaf Nintendo 3DS owners. But while I do love managing my virtual town, I'm on the hunt for another game for my new system. Luigi's Haunted Mansion Dark Moon is the current top contender with great reviews and one of my favorite Nintendo characters.
Diana- I carry my Canon S90 for a small camera but sometimes I need more power like by Canon DSLR. The size plus taking all the lenses makes me think twice about carrying it all day, but now that Canon released the SL1, half the size and half the weight but the power of the DSLR, it's perfect for my lifestyle.
