Chucks and Jones for Christmas.


Converse has a really great idea for a Christmas or holiday gift for kids or teens (or me!). They can design their own pair of sneakers (hi-tops, low-tops, leather, whatever) online and send you the link and you can order them. It takes 2-4 weeks so you'll want to get a head start.

Also another cute idea for Jones soda lovers or anyone, really: A personalized photo on a case of Jones soda bottles.


I can't believe it's not too early to start thinking of these things.

OMD, I love Converse high-tops (and low tops). I have a pair in red Chinese brocade. So excited to design my own. Thanks for this!

David said...

Yeah, this is a pretty great idea. My old, worn navy Chucks appear at the office every casual Friday.

And Jones Cream Soda...MMM!

I love the Jones Soda idea. They have some creative promotions in their years. My favorite was the turkey and gray flavored soda. I was so curious was it tasted like, but couldn't find it in the stores.

Oh, egan, you have to get it. Target sells it every year.

We have a series of photos of the ridiculously disgusted faces everybody's making as they taste "Brussels sprouts soda" or "Stuffing."

It's so funny.

They also have a limited edition of Yes We Can soda on sale. :-)

Decorina - Is OMD oh my dog?

David - Cream soda, of course.

Decorina said...

Yes it is.

You are so organized and forward thinking! Meanwhile, I still have a melting pumpkin from Halloween outside on the patio.

Love the soda idea, and who doesn't need a new pair of Chucks?

David said...

I've designed myself a pair of low top Jack Purcells. Red on the inside, blue on the outside, with a white tongue. For personalization I put the date, 01/20/09

hello gorgeous said...

Excellent! You are such a patriot! I'm verklempt.

egan said...

Yikes, please ignore my numerous typos in my comment. Target carries that flavor for sure? I had a tough time finding it, but couldn't get myself to buy it off Ebay.

hello gorgeous said...

For the past few Thanksgiving/holiday seasons, Target has sold Thanksgiving dinner in a bottle as a set of 5 or 6.

There's always turkey with gravy but the sides change.

I was at Target today and didn't see it but I wasn't looking for it either.

hello gorgeous said...

Egan, I just saw Turkey and Gravy on the website. But it's the personalized version. I'd call Target but it looks like it may not be available this year. Last year's had green bean casserole. Ew.

I always feel like I am wearing flippers when I put on my low tops. I can't bear the thought of getting rid of them because they are so cute, but I can't walk very well in them (though I have no problem in heels).

Decorina said...

David that totally rocks!!! I want the Grateful Dead print; your choice of 1-20-2009 is the best idea yet!

Nicole Marie said...

hello gorgeous said...

Michelle Parks McCourt said...

I love the converse idea, it is genius!

porter hovey said...

Ohhhh!! Both are just sooo cool!

hello gorgeous said...

P.S. If anybody can figure out how to do the photo for the Jones thing, please email me. I can get the size very close but the dpis change. Argh.
