Ty Pennington Provides Sears Holiday Shoppers With Extreme Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Designer of Sears Home Fashion Line Picks Favorite Gifts With Sense of Style

Ty Pennington, star of ABC's smash hit, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, and Sears have teamed up again to redesign the classic stocking stuffer gift ideas and take them up a couple notches.

"The best thing this time of year is seeing people's reactions when you give them something they love, but wouldn't have thought of themselves," says Pennington. "Always remember that big wishes come in small packages. Give gifts that go beyond the norm. Whether practical, romantic or whimsical, Sears delivers the goods with value."

Here are some of Ty's tips for giving this season's stocking stuffers an extreme makeover, with style and versatility:

  --  What better place to start than setting the holiday mood, whatever it
      may be.  Enlighten everyone on your list with the casual elegance and
      warm vanilla scent of camel-colored Ty Pennington Style pillar candles
      ($19.99-29.99), paired with coordinated antique designed scroll
      candleholders ($5.99-9.99) to make their wishes come true.
  --  Exceed their wildest expectations and ring in the holiday with some
      "oohs" and "ahhs."  You can't go wrong with fine jewelry and just
      imagine her surprise when she reaches into her stocking, expecting a
      chocolate Santa, and pulls out a one-carat (total weight) diamond
      anniversary band ($499).
  --  Get something near and dear to their hearts, and I don't mean
      fruitcake.  For the music-lover on your list, Samsung's 1GB Personal
      MP3 Flash Player with Picture Viewer ($170.99) will hold up to
      250 songs, plus digital pictures can be stored and viewed on the vivid
      color display.  The enhanced 3-D sound and ultra-fast file transfers
      will have them rocking around the Christmas tree!
  --  Out with the old, in with the new.  For something really unexpected,
      give the Sony worryfreedigital camcorder ($599).  It can record the
      joy of everyday moments directly to 3-inch DVD-R/RW and +RW formats
      that play back in most DVD players.  Or give the Nikon Coolpix 8-MP
      digital camera ($549.99) with built-in Wi-Fi connectivity for wireless
      transfer of images.  Welcome to the 21st Century!
  --  Their stockings were hung by the chimney with care, and they hoped
      that freedom soon be there with  ...  Sears gift cards!  Anything is
      possible with imagination, creativity and cards that never expire.
      For an extra personal touch, Sears offers personalized photo gift
      cards.  The gift card is a blank photo frame and you add your own
      photo or have a special photo taken at Sears' portrait studios.
  --  Take them to the next level with the Playstation Portable (PSP)
      ($249.99).  This amazing portable platform brings an unparalleled
      gaming experience to your favorite gamers allowing them to enjoy
      gaming with high-quality, full-motion video, Hi-Fi stereo audio and
      more.  Let the gaming begin!
  --  Give the gift of power.  Let's face it, the most sought after gifts
      this year are electronic and nothing is more disappointing than
      opening your new Craftsman Laser Trac level and not having any "AA"
      batteries on hand to use it.  The same logic applies to power tools.
      Give your guy a Craftsman 19.2-volt cordless combo kit ($119.99) and
      round out that perfect gift by dropping a spare set of DieHard
      Batteries ($54.99) in his stocking.
  --  Capture the "spirit" of the holidays.  Why not add a "cosmopolitan"
      sparkle to their stockings?  Couple Ty Pennington Style Cosmopolitan
      Martini Glasses (set of four $19.99) with an airplane-sized bottle of
      vodka or a jazzy juice drink and make everyone feel more festive.
      These chic glasses feature long stems and sleek design, and come in
      your choice of four sassy colors.
