The Hippest Christmas Nutcracker You'll Find This Year.

Last year, West Elm carried some cool modern versions of traditional nutcrackers that I posted on my list of hip christmas decor over at ThisNext, but not this year. But alas, no need to cry because this year CB2 has one of the hippest takes on a traditional nutcracker.

The Inked nutcracker is carved from white pine and painted red, white and black. He is tatted with "Naughty" on his right arm with an intricate montage of skull and candy cross bones. And the word "Nice" scripts his left arm in a cozy scene of fireplace logs and mistletoe.

The man in the big red suit has a permanent place in this nutcracker's heart in the form of "Santa Baby" etched on his chest. "Ho Ho Ho" banner decks out his handle. Cool.

A Holiday Video for Dog Lovers From Bergdorf Goodman and the Humane Society.

Bergdorf Goodman goes to the dogs this year for its annual holiday video. Inspired by this year’s theme of the department store's holiday windows, “Carnival of the Animals,” (all of which are shown later in this post) BG Films presents “Unleashed,” a story about some of New York's most charismatic canines as they invade the store in search of a perfect gift for their owner.

Guest star, Salty, (shown below) steals the show with a special performance that will warm hearts of all animal lovers.

The four minute, 19 second video in its entirety, Unleashed:

The video was directed by Theo Stanley of HARBOR Film Company, with Creative Direction and Concept by Aidan Kemp, Vice President and Creative Director, Bergdorf Goodman.

eBay & Toys for Tots use QR Codes to Window Shop for "Good" this Holiday.

Created by eBay's ad agency, Venables Bell & Partners, eBay and Toys for Tots have launched the GIVE-A-TOY STORE.

An interactive window display in New York (at 35th and Broadway) and San Francisco (at 117 Post St.) lets you donate a toy by scanning its tag (a QR code) with the eBay mobile app.

Once scanned, the animated toys come to life, encouraging passers-by to get into the holiday giving spirit.

It's a clever, engaging and cute way to be charitable this holiday season and to make many a child happy.

And, for those of you who can’t stop by in-person, you can donate some joy at

There is also a Facebook application called "Build a Toy."

Users donate by customizing one of the classic, virtual toys at eBay will donate $1 for every toy customized, up to $50,000.
