The holidays are around the corner and you know what that means. That’s right. Getting gifts for everyone on your list. And if you’re like most people, no matter how hard you tried alienating some people on your list, they’re still hanging around.
So, you’re faced with the dilemma. You want to get these people something, but since you didn’t receive any bailout money, you don’t want to spend a lot.
This is where Motherhood in NYC’s exclusive Twitter Gift List comes in handy.
Because everyone, no matter how much of a dinosaur, wants to appear hip and modern and nothing is more modern than Twitter. It’s word of the year, people. And who doesn’t love celebrities? Why not combine the two, add a sprinkling of “it’s the thought that counts,” plus a helping of “it’s better to give than receive” and voila! You have a recipe for absolutely free, yet super thoughtful gift giving.
By giving your loved one a special-hand selected celebrity to follow, you’ll save a mint (assuming that a mint is what you are used to spending on your giftees) and impress them by being on the cutting edge. Sure, they may never actually log on to Twitter to follow your suggested celebrity, but do you really think that they’ve ever worn that holiday sweater you forced on them a few years ago?
So, please allow me to present the 2009 Celebrity Twitter Follows for Everyone on Your Gift List.
