Like most bloggers, I’m an Amazon affiliate. This time of year, we all appreciate when our readers click-through the Amazon links and ads and make a purchase. We get a very small percentage of that transaction, and after lots of such shoppers, we get paid. I use Amazon for many medical items; bulk Miralax, exam gloves, under pads, plastic urinals: all the glamorous stuff I either can’t find at Target or would prefer to not put on the conveyor belt. To those readers who’ve made purchases, through my site and helped offset those expenses; THANK YOU. I hope you are enjoying your Jolly Ranchers, pencil sharpener and Medical Transcription CDROM set.
But now, I have a special post for all my high rolling readers who’ve yet to complete their holiday shopping. Let me present my exclusive, high-end Christmas Gift Guide, full of Amazon’s choicest offerings that is sure to please even the most discerning recipient on your list.
A six-pack of craft brew is nice….for a commoner. If your husband deserves the royal treatment, why not get him a top of the line beer dispenser and cooler for his man cave. You may never have to fake phase two again. $6,199
Now that’s he’s retired, has your father taken up fly fishing? Pick up a rod and reel that’s sure to please regardless of the catch he brings home. (It will also remind you of Brad Pitt in ‘A River Runs Through It’ which is nice too.) $1,199

If you need a small stocking stuffer, why not consider a new shaving brush to help your man lather up the old-fashioned way? The $125 price tag comes with a cruelty free guarantee, meaning this bristle was harvested from animals raised on nothing but caviar and love.
When it comes to watching hilarious videos of cats on YouTube, your loved one shouldn’t be subjected to sub-par sound quality.Render those meows and lip dubs crystal clear for $990.
Gentlemen, candy colored iPhones are for children. Treat your woman to this diamond encrusted iPhone and be assured she won’t be wearing yoga pants when you get home for at least a week. $12,000

Husbands, if you want your wife to take her blog to the next level, she needs a camera designed with the mommy blogger in mind. This Nikon not only takes pictures, but shoots HD video. Don’t worry, there’s all sorts of tutorials on Pinterest to help her figure out how to use it. $5,996
Don’t forget the lens! She’ll look like she should be wearing press credentials! $2396
She might still show up late to co-op, but at least she’ll look good and take the attention away from her stained denim jumper and ratty cardigan with a new watch. And bonus: it shows the moons phases! Now she can fill in for the parent teaching astronomy. $27,658
