by ,

first_imgLooking for that last minute gift but you’re too busy running around to hit the high street?If you’re catching a flight this festive season, consider picking up a few presents in Duty Free at the airport. Kill a few Christmas robins with one Santa-shaped stone and finish off your last-minute gift shopping, as well as picking up a few souvenirs from your trip. This way you’ll be free to fly home, having made sure those stockings are well and truly stuffed come Christmas Eve. Let Skyscanner make Christmas simple for you, with 10 of the best Christmas present ideas for friends and loved ones that you can buy at the airport:1. PerfumeBuy that special someone their favourite designer fragrance for a fraction of the price at the airport. While you may have to shop around for a bargain, some signature scents often run on special offer and many Duty Free outlets sell limited edition gift sets that you won’t find anywhere else. Just be careful you don’t spend too long spritzing and sampling all of the perfumes on offer and miss your flight! 2. TobleroneIt’s the famous triangle-shaped chocolate treat found stacked on shelves in Duty Free all around the world. It’s also proven to be Dads’ favourite. So hit that sweet spot and pick up a stick, available in milk, dark and white chocolate. Just try not to finish the bar before you get home to wrap it up and pop it under the tree.Read more: 5 devilishly delicious holiday destinatons for chocoholics 5. A bookFor the bookworm in the family, give them something from their favourite author, or maybe broaden their horizons with the latest international bestseller. Find a selection of books at the airport to suit everyone’s literary tastes, from the latest chick lit to Nobel Prize-winning words. It may seem a little retro, what with e-readers and apps, but books are perfect for frequent travellers with a habit of forgetting chargers. 4. A handbagYou can never have enough of them. Clutch, tote or straight up shoulder, whatever their preferred style, be sure to bag a bargain on designer handbags and purses at the airport. This is the perfect place to pick up some luxury leather that they’re bound to love. 9. A bottle of wineKnow someone who’s something of a wine connoisseur? The airport is a good place to pick up international wines that may not be available at your local supermarket. Bottles are often on offer, usually as a multi-buy deal, so you don’t have to turn up at family lunch empty-handed and you’ll still have plenty left to help you recover from the whole affair come Boxing Day. Or if you need something a little stronger, how about a good single malt whisky?

A cuddly toyMelt hearts with a soft toy stocking filler. Kids, old and young, can’t resist the fluffy charms of a teddy bear, especially one dressed as Santa, an elf, or something equally seasonal. Alternatively, you could always go for an airline mascot toy as a trip gift for someone small. 7. Fridge magnetsCapture the essence of your destination with a colourful piece of plastic that you can stick on your white appliances. Fridge magnets make lovely little stocking fillers and show someone that you thought about them while you were away (albeit at the very last minute while you were rushing to make your flight home). Every time they look at it they’ll be reminded of your thoughtfulness, before scowling at the gas bill pinned to the fridge below it.

Good Seed Bad Seed Whats the Difference between Activist and Passive Seed

by ,

first_imgWith more and more funding options being made available to entrepreneurs (angels, accelerators, and micro-VCs, oh my!), it’s important for startup companies to be able to differentiate and assess their options accordingly.As Jeffrey Bussgang writes in a post for his Seeing Both Sides blog, one important distinction they need to recognize is the difference between Passive Seeds and Activist Seeds.While passive seed funding programs value quantity over quality and typically treat funding as “an option to participate as a more meangingful investor in the future,” Bussgang argues, activist seed VC investors make the same kind of full time commitment of time, resources, and energy they would provide a Series A company. They become actively involved and offer value-added services to help the startup succeed. As such, they’re also often much more selective with their funding. For more on the differences between passive and activist seeds, and the factors your startup should take into consideration when choosing a VC, read the full post here.Related Content from OpenView:Seed funding shouldn’t be taken lightly.
