But don't panic. We have a gift that's perfect for most of the folks on your list--at least those old enough to drive. It's moderately priced, relatively rare, and it's the very definition of handy-dandy. In fact, it's called "The Hand."
Basically, it's the next major offering for the "cute/annoying window sticker" market--one that's been in serious decline since the demise of "Baby on Board" in the mid-1990s. Specifically, "The Hand" is a sticker that's controlled via a remote, which the driver can attach to her/his sun visor. Using electroluminescent technology straight outta Spencer Gifts, the hand can assume one of seven signs, ranging from the hokey "Hang loose" to the predictable bird-flip to the totally awesome Vince Neil-style "shout at the devil." Why waste your own energy telling off tailgaters or hailing hotties when something battery-powered can do it for you?
Of course, here at TheCarConnection.com, we've got much simpler tastes. Frankly, one $3.99 Road Rage Air Freshener would put us over the moon. Hint hint.-- Richard Read
