Today I made a selection from the best selling gifts on Zazzle, and then the gifts that I find most inspiring, with creative zest and flavour! I browsed through all products and selected one or more from most categories. You can find more product categories on Zazzle, but some are so new that the best selling ones are not available yet. Of course you can also find political t-shirts, bumper stickers and caps on Zazzle, but this blog focuses on artistic qualities. So enjoy:

Eros (Ancient Greek: Ἔρως, "Intimate Love"), in Greek mythology, was the primordial god of sexual love and beauty. He was also worshipped as a fertility deity. His Roman counterpart was Cupid ("desire"). Worship of Eros was uncommon in early Greece, but eventually became widespread. He was fervently worshiped by a f...ertility cult in Thespiae, and played an important role in the Eleusinian Mysteries.
