Get rid of some of that last minute shopping rage with the iPhone application eSnowglobe. With 1,700 animated snowflakes that move at 60 fps, you can tilt to make it move or turn it upside down to create a mini-blizzard. With three different backgrounds and 2 modes, you can even pack a snowball to launch inside your phone. Pick a photo for background, change the colors and add sound effects or music to complete your globe. The eSnowglobe can be found at the App store for a mere $2.00.

We were all set to blog about the cutesy Snow Blowing Snowman which seemed a welcome relief from all those blow-up snow globes that constantly leak, when we came across this deluxe model. Used in movies by Thomas FX, you can bring winter home with the professional machine that features a 600 watt motor and fan that will shoot out up to 30 feet. At a size of 21 x 9 x 11-inches, it runs for about one hour and can adjust from light to heavy flakes. The machine comes with 8 oz. of snow solution, with additional bottles available for $124.94. At a price of $1499.95, we can’t imagine wanting to do anything with that much snow except making it go away.
