As the season of gift giving draws ever nearer, so too does the Herculean challenge of penning countless holiday cards, letters and notes to family, friends and colleagues near and far. Pre.vu is offering a digital-age alternative that could make such tasks a little easier by allowing consumers to record a personalised message onto a CD case or gift tag instead.
Voice, music and sound effects can be included in a 60-second message that’s incorporated in a credit card-sized gift tag or CD case to accompany a set of holiday photos, for example.

The laudable process comes together to create an equally praiseworthy product: stylish, wearable jeans for the masses. Though they aim to expand, currently Sharkah
Chakra products are exclusively available at Harvey Nichols in London.
