AWB Promotions’ pulsating massage pillows were the hot hits at Les Boutiques de Noel Gala Wednesday and Thursday.

Kathy Smith and Tracy Pressly were among those walking out of the Les Boutiques with armloads.

"I’m giving them to everybody said," Pressly.

She and hubby Dr. Tom Pressly were among those trying them out at the gala. "Isn’t it fabulous?" asked Tracy.

Why, you had to stand in line just to see what all the fuss was about. (Hubby Paul Schuetze and I were among them. And, wow, do they make your back feel good.)

Perfect, just perfect gifts for that person who has everything.

Another unusual item at Les Boutiques are DRG Specialty cups that change images and/or light up with color when you pour hot coffee, tea or even water into them.

There are scenes of hummingbirds, birds of North America, angels, golfing and a fat cross and pink pigs. They are really neat.

"I love it," said Judy Russo.

"My wife ramrods the business. I just pour hot water," quipped Tom Williams, hubby of Sue.

LSU Health Sciences Center is selling its Bill Joyce cards and the Junior League, cookbooks.

Jan Hudson of Hudson House is thrilled with her glittery "Dancing with the Stars" shoes.

Noreen Dockendorf of Spoiled Rotten, who has the new cropped jackets and evening tops, has been selling coming and going.

Among the things in the King Hardware area are Christmas-themed toilet paper and "Under Wraps" from Dallas is back with its tulle, raffia and paper. New this year: Burgundy matte-inspired paper.

Les Boutiques is sponsored by Shreveport Opera Guild and runs through Saturday at Bossier Civic Center.

We’ve posted some scenes from the gala shot by Paul.
