Festivus & Winter Solstice: Cents-ible Chick

Today's holidays: Festivus and the Winter Solstice. Two very different holidays, with very different gift traditions.

SOLSTICE GIFTS
1. Achla Designs Chaparral Bird Feeder ($55) - A tree is a Solstice symbol, representing the spirits of nature, and feeding the birds & squirrels in your neighborhood by hanging this in a tree (filled with bird food, of course) is a wonderful way to give back. This antiqued bird feeder features a wrought iron-style design.

2. Votivo Winter Solstice Candle ($28 on sale) - This lovely, hand-blown mirrored votive candleholder is filled with a natural soy wax blend with a winter berry scent. Fire is a traditional symbol of the Winter Solstice, symbolizing the sun's powers growing stronger as the days grow longer after the solstice.

3. Amy Brown Winter Solstice 8x10 Double Mat Print ($14) framed in a DA Custom Frames 8x10 Silver Leaf Handmade Picture Frame ($35) - Artist Amy Brown primarily paints Faeries, and her Winter Solstice painting makes a unique, timeless gift.

FESTIVUS GIFTS
4.Weasel Factory A Festivus For the Rest of Us Necklace ($26) - After you've finished the Airing of Grievances, give everyone who listened to you one of these hand-cut necklaces, complete with a tiny aluminum pole dangling from the "P."

5. Seinfeld Season 9 DVD ($30) - Festivus became popular thanks to the "The Strike" episode in season 9, which originally aired on December 18, 1997. So, you can thank them

6. Festivus LED Light Kit ($60) - Can't have a Festivus without the Festivus Pole, right? Grab a $5 aluminum pole at your local hardware store and use this beauty to jazz it up.

7. Zazzle Happy Festivus Shirt ($26, in 7 colors) - Show your anti-commercialism spirit with this austere Festivus tee.

Who's got the cash to spend thousands on gifts this year? We sure don't, so we've found you some reasonably priced, thoughtful gifts to please just about everyone on your list. Each Cents-ible Chick gift idea will ring up under $100, including shipping.
