IROBOTS ROOMBA 510 VACUUM IS A CHRISTMAS-WORTHY GADGET
At first blush, the idea of purchasing a vacuum cleaner for Christmas seems incredibly irresponsible. This is especially true for a man buying holiday gifts for the woman in his life. The old punch line about buying the significant other a blender is even trumped by the notion of buying her a vacuum.
Forget the fact that vacuum cleaners are inherently boring in and of themselves, but add in all of the subtext sent with a gift like this and youíve got a potential disaster on your hands. ďHere honey, I just thought you needed a hand keeping the place a little cleaner.Ē Probably not going to find that sentiment expressed in many Christmas cards from loving husbands.
But as with all rules, there are exceptions. Enter the Irobot Roomba 510 Vacuum. This little engineering marvel is all but your momís oleí upright. The Irobot Roomba 510 Vacuum actually vacuums for you. So, in a way, itís the anti-vacuum. Just set the hub-cap-shaped device on the ground in any room of the house/apartment and it goes to work sucking up dirt for you.
It picks up all of the dirt, pet hair, and other stuff that you would expect from a normal vacuum and also works seamlessly on both carpeted and bare floors, automatically sensing which type it is currently working on. Additionally, the gizmo senses walls and drop-offs to avoid damaging itself. There are additional virtual walls that can be used to tell the Irobot Roomba 510 Vacuum to stay in a certain area. All in all, this is a really cool machine that just might prove to be an exception to the never give an appliance rule.
But I think there is a safer, and better option out there. How about giving the gift of time spent on an excursion that both of you will love equally? Sound impossible? Well, Texas entrepreneur Ron Sturgeon has come up with just such an experience gift for car enthusiasts. Itís called DFW Drive Your Dream (www.dfwdriveyourdream.com) and lets those with an automotive itch to drive five of the worldís most sought after cars in a single day of fun. The day includes instruction on the finer points of driving each car, photo opps, high fives, lunch at an upscale bistro and memories that will last a lifetime.
Exotic car driving tours are relatively new, but auto-minded entrepreneurs have started to offer in places such as Los Vegas and New York. However, nowhere but Dallas will you find an exotic car driving experience especially designed for a couple to share. DFW Drive Your Dream offers a special couples exotic car tour. Imagine spending the entire day driving five exotic cars and dining at a fine restaurant. You can feel like a stud driving the Porsche 911 Cabriolet and she can feel like royalty in the Rolls Royce Phantom. Everybody wins!
Sturgeon, a car fanatic himself, didnít just passively get into the exotic car tour business, he has also developed an exotic car club and an exotic car rental operation. DFW Elite Car Club (www.dfwelitecarclub.com) is a premier car club that offers the opportunity to drive a selection of exotic cars that were once part of Sturgeonís private car collection. You could drive a Ferrari F430 F1 on Monday and a Bentley GTC on Tuesday. The annual membership includes a fixed number of points that can be used to reserve any of the over 40 cars in the club's collection. Membership in an exotic car sharing club gives the change to drive a variety of the latest exotics, timeless classics, and top drawer luxury cars without the hassles of ownership. If you donít live in the Dallas area, check out www.exoticcarclubs.com for an extensive nationwide directory of exotic car clubs.
DFW Elite Auto Rental (www.dfweliteautorental.com) is for the short-term minded exotic car fan. This operation allows for daily rentals of everything from armored cars to luxury sedans and trucks. DFW Elite Auto Rental is the perfect solution for everything from impressing an important client in town for business to shuttling around your daughter and her friends for her sweet sixteenth. For those not located in the Dallas area, www.rentexoticcars.net offers a national directory of similar businesses.
