The Toshiba Thrive’s very aggressive pricing gives it an advantage over most other tablets. Its grooved back, full HDMI and USB support, full SD card slot, and replaceable battery justify its very bulky design. Also, its built-in file management system makes finding and accessing files in Honeycomb easier. Available at ebay for only $441.26

For those luxury loving ladies who want to add a bit of fur to their lives without feeling ostentatious, try the subtle Sofie Fox Pom Pom Scarf . It’s pretty much the ultimate in softness. Supple cashmere comes to a fuzzy end that’s all in all, not fussy. Available at amazon.com for only $123

As Barnes & Noble says, think origami, and you get the concept behind the Tasume. It’s a thin trifold case that’s relatively lightweight and protects the screen when folded shut–and stays shut thanks to an integrated magnet.

You then fold the flaps of the case back to form the stand (the flaps adhere nicely thanks to the magnet) and you can prop up your Nook Tablet or Color horizontally or vertically.

The case comes in carbon or red. The only drawback is that it’s pretty pricey at $49.95 and some users have faulted it for not being made of leather. But consider this to be the best choice if you plan to use the Tablet as a media player–at least until more cases with integrated stand options arrive.  Available at Barnes and Noble 

Sequins and chunky cables….normally we’d say no way, but we’re totally digging the Sanctuary Sequin Sweater , which has a feminine feel to a stylish fisherman sweater in a pretty fawn color (that goes with just about everything in our wardrobe). Available at shopimagineclothing.com for only $130

Putting the Tarjay back into Target is the Sea Going Solid Shade Ceramic Lamp . You’ll feel like you paid boutique prices for this clean modern lamp that adds a cheery burst of color into any room you’d like – and at twenty bucks, why not all of them?

Available at Target.com for only ($20)

Dodocase, the maker of popular bookish cases for tablets and e-readers, has just released itsDodocase for Kindle Fire, and it’s a good one.

Dodocase says its one-piece bamboo tray, carved in San Francisco, “perfectly matches the curvature of your Kindle Fire while providing access to all buttons and ports.” And for those who are concerned about the Fire’s speakers being covered up, the company adds that the design includes “sound channels to direct audio from the speakers.”  The sound came out fine.

Dodocases don’t come cheap and this one retails for $44.95. While it’s only available in black, you do get a choice of interior colors. Available at Dodocase.com

Glamming up an everyday staple makes something otherwise ordinary damn near irresistible to us. Doing it in five different color combos? Well that’s just cruel. How are we supposed to pick which lovely Deux Lux Felix Satchel  is right for us? Navy with graphite sequins? Olive with gold sequins?

What’s a girl to do?! We’ve decided to just ask for one for Christmas and let the gift giver decide. Available at deuxlux.com for only $86

We love these Fair Isle Wrist-Warmers from Wooden Ships–the black and mustard is to die for. But do we really need another pair of fingerless gloves? Is there ever a time when we need palm and wrist warmth, but not finger warmth? Available at room6.com for only $42

This Houdini Beanie is fairly magical. It can change into three different styles, hide a less than stellar hair day, and cover the gigantic zit on your forehead that didn’t get the memo you’re not 15 anymore. Anything that can hide the unicorn horn that visits once or twice a month is a magic maker in our opinion. Available at beardowear.ca for only $37
