Last Minute Gift Idea - Sleek and Chic and Strangely Functional
By Bill Mullens
Usually I'm pretty good at planning presents for the holidays, normally finishing shopping by Thanksgiving. But last year I found myself shopping until a few days before Christmas. Not my favorite thing. I needed one more gift, it was for my brother Dan. Now, not only is he very selective in the things he likes, he also already has two of everything. He's never been easy, but usually I can come up with something impressive, or at least acceptable.
Alright, so I decided that a commodity item ain't gonna do it, so I went on line looking for something esoteric. I came across something called the QLink, a kind of high-tech jewelry that was supposed to revitalize you. Sounded like a scam to me, but then I read that there were scientific studies on it by some real reputable scientists and universities. And it turned out that thousands of people have found it useful. Dan's a bit of a techno-junkie anyway, so I figured it'd be a good fit.
So he was pleasantly bewildered at Christmas when he opened his present to find this geeky plastic and metal thing on a cord that you're supposed to wear around your neck. After he finished laughing at me, I convinced him to wear it for a while to see if it had any effect. So he put it on under his shirt (he didn't want to be seen with it in public) and we forgot about it.
Now Dan's an energetic guy and goes full steam all day, but he generally wimps out by 9:00 and by 11:00 he's a zombie. But last Christmas he was still going strosng at midnight. I pointed this out to him, so he laughed at me some more.
A few days later I get a call. He tells me that when his supervisor at work yelled at him for some political transgression (he works in a Dilbert-style cube farm), instead of tensing up and not being able to speak effectively, he was able to think calmly and defend himself and his team mates - something he's never been able to do before. And he tells me that he sleeps deeper than he ever has since he was a kid and gets a better rest. He insisted that I get a QLink, which I did and I haven't taken it off since.
This year, Q Energies is launching a more powerful QLink technology that's housed in a sleek, elegant pendant that's chic and not geeky (I immediately got one for my wife). So this may be the last minute gift idea you're looking for. There's no risk anyway since they give you 90 days to return it for any reason for a full refund.
