    I like the idea behind the Fairphone. That’s a great gift any time. The shakti mat reminds me of the shoes I had years ago –remember the slides that had the little rubber/plastic things all over the insoles? It was supposed to help your feet but I never got used to it, lol. Maybe I just have sensitive feet?
