Need an unusual gift for that special someone?

By Aussiegirl

It's that time of year again. And if you are looking for something out of the ordinary for that special someone, or that particularly difficult person on your list who seems to have everything already, and if you just can't afford the baubles from Neiman-Marcus this year like his and her diamond-encrusted jet planes -- well -- look no further. Why not check out the Ukrainian online shopping site called Yevshan at http://www.yevshan.com/

Check out the songs of the Orange Revolution. Listen to Ukrainian rap and rock and roll. Listen to Ruslana's latest English-language album -- "Wild Dances" -- I think she just won the European title of pop artist of the year or something like that -- I guess it's the Euro equivalent of a Grammy award. There's also lots of Ukrainian arts and crafts, embroideries, dolls, ceramics, icons, posters, videos, books and lots more. The website is in English -- so fear not -- and many of the books and items are also in English. If nothing else it is a fun place to browse.

I get no commission from the website. I just enjoyed looking through it myself last night and wanted to pass it along.
