Christmas Gift Idea #5: Alessandro M.- Merry Boy Corkscrew

Posted: 13 Dec 2012 06:28 PM PST

Alessandro Mendini popular corkscrew- Alessandro M. corkscrew is getting a facelift for the Christmas season. A limited edition, the "Alessandro M.- Merry Boy" corkscrew is the product chosen as the 2011 symbol for "The Dream Factory": a partnership project between Alessi and the Association "Amici dei Bambini" set up in 2006 with the aim - just like Father Christmas - of making dreams come true for lots of children living in hardship all over the world. This year Father Christmas is dressed up in red, white and green to bring his round-the-world "Dream Factory" trip to Italy for the first time.

The project that Alessi and Amici dei Bambini have chosen to decorate in green, white and red to celebrate our country focuses this time on someone really special: tiny babies still too young to have real wishes of their own, apart from the unique and imperative one of wanting to stay with their mothers. For them, the first Mother-Child Community, managed by Amici dei Bambini, will be built in the Milan area. It'll be a protected, safe place where new mums with problems will be welcomed with their little ones in that time of need. A special home where they can learn to be mothers and children, enveloped in each other's warm arms.

Christmas Gift Idea #4: New Vespa 946

Posted: 13 Dec 2012 02:45 AM PST

Piaggio new scooter, the Vespa 946 is a mix of new technology with classic retro style of Vespa. the Vespa 946 maintains many of Vespa's signature design of MP6, the original Vespa prototype back in 1946 designed by Corradino D'Ascanio.

The 946 main attraction is the aerodynamic cantilevered seat, which at first glance it look like a parrot head. Piaggio's engineers have taken a bolder step in fixing a larger aluminum seat for two people compared to the solo seat in the old model.

The 946 also features aluminum alloys, body with sleek curves and fuel-efficient technology. Another addition is the horizontally mounted rear shock absorber with four adjustable positions, LED lighting and LCD display.

So thinking of Vespa 946 as your Christmas gift? But don't go running to dealers just yet, the 946 will likely only arrive in late 2013.
