Seven great Second Life gift ideas for the Christmas Holidays - Dean Lawson reporting

’Tis the season to be stressing about what to get your loved ones! Do you have friends and family in SL? Do you have a Secret Santa going on at your place of business? Well here are seven awesome gift ideas.
The *MCS* HolidayToyTrainSet-Tree is a nice way to decorate a home or place of business. With an animated toy train that circles a fully decorated tree with an assortment of wrapped gifts at the base, this holiday gift goes for 300L at the Winter Holiday Village sim.

The Christmas scenery - Xmas Carolers *E&M*, brought to you by Love Garden *E&M* Design, is a fun and interactive gift idea where you and a friend can sit on stage and join the carollers in performing Christmas classics. The stage is propped up by a tree truck with a multilingual sign that bids all a Merry Christmas in English, Spanish, French, Portuguese and German. This is a large object so, while it is not ideal for smaller indoor spaces, it will surely attract the attention and is a great entrance decoration for anyone with a large sim.

Tyren’s Fantasy Fashions, located at Holiday Christmas Town, has an assortment of Medieval costumes that fit the Christmas season. My pick would be the Toy Soldier costume with designs for both men and women. For 150L this is perfect for a costume party, a stage performance of the Nutracker Suite or can be used for alts or employees to enhance a sim’s Christmas theme.

For those of you with a taste for the unusual, Never You Mind has an assortment of oddities for the Christmas season. Oh My Ears Krismischifs for 140L is a great revenge gift for someone you feel obligated to shop for but don’t really want to. Oh My Ears Krismischifs are two adorably grotesque carollers who half sing half rant their way through an assortment of Christmas classics. The recipient of this gift will surely find it amusing for the first few minutes but will inevitably be driven insane by the endless cacophony.

There are times when the commercialism of Christmas can lead to cynicism but, in remembrance of the true Christmas Spirit there are several nativity scenes that can be purchased in the marketplace, many of them are under ten lindens, however the one that appealed to me in its simplicity is the Light Box Silhouette - Nativity by Challis Products that offers a demo version so you can see for yourself if it will make a good gift before spending 200L for the full version.

While there is little doubt that Second Life vendors will be saturating the market with candy cane stripper gear, the sexiest outfit on the grid is easily THUD - Santa Avatar by Tommy Hilf Unique Designs. For 200L it’s a great gift to give yourself as it's sure to get the hotties sitting on your lap.

Now if you’re facing the Holiday season with a limited budget, Santa Claus is giving away free gifts at Christmas Decorations at The House of Avro. Everyday the old fellow gives away a free random gift and all you have to do is sit on his lap and make him smile.

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas - Dean Lawson Reporting

What do you get the avatar that has everything?

Although economics does have an impact on purchase considerations in Second Life, when one considers the dollarbie mansion skyboxes and freebie sports cars on the marketplace, it would seem the sky is the limit when looking for that perfect gift for that special someone. Being new to SL I was sure there were plenty of stores and boutiques that I had yet to discover that would offer great Valentine’s Day gifts but after conducting a survey of my fellow SL Residents I was surprised to discover that what people wanted most for Valentine’s Day, was not something that could be found in a box.
When asked what she wanted for Valentine’s Day, Traci Butt (yvettehuntington) replied; “A handsome guy to take me dancing would be the perfect Valentine gift for SL:)”
Barbie Alchemi answered; “I like to have a shared fun experience. Like going to a beautiful sim that I have never seen before and talking in voice with my friends while we explore.”
While Catalina™  (katinnah)  said; “My gift could be spend some special time together, on a nice place, a place he doesnt knows…"

There were some people who offered more conventional ideas. Such as LadyAddor who replied; "When i send a gift i get them TrigiGifts … they have a lot of cute stuff for B Day Christmas"
Kris  Voráček (kr1sfgf) answered; "yikes um.. i dont even know i would look on MP for jewelry to be honest...  JCNY and maxi gossimer"
Charmed Melody answered; “If I had a Valentine to give a gift card to his fav SL store … to receive one I wouldn’t mind some roses or a teddy bear."
Jett (aylajet.topaz) replied; “Personally I like a mesh body … Everything and anything all mesh … yay"
Lillie (lillie.reggiane) answered; “… the best gift I received from someone on SL was ice skates and a way cute skating outfit. Then we went skating together."

But overall I found most people where more interested in a unique experience as opposed to a gift that could be bought.
Héloïse V. Boréalis (anaryane) responded; "I think in SL, you can surprise. By example, a notecard with a nice poem, a sort of treasure hunt at home (and why not, build an ambient ?) and à meeting on a beautiful sim ... Treasure hunt at home, it will be funny!"
Lace (whiteprincess1) wrote; "Well I rented some land and built a beautiful date site with many wonderful  things.. and apier with a dinner table and chairs and petals... I have already bought the balloons for valentines day ;)"
Sadie (sadiestark) replied; "A great Valentines gift would be one that took some time and thought to put together.  Like setting up a romantic night starting with a show where a live singer might sing a dedication. After that maybe some quiet dancing at a venue created at home just for spending special time with the one you love.  The most important part is total focus on the person you are with and making them smile ... giving someone something to smile about is the best gift for any occasion :)"
