Google has a new tool for users, Countdown to 2009. The calendar will present a new item each day for users. Yesterday was "Get gift ideas and holiday savings" (naturally), which contained a link to top searches on Google Product Search. Clicking on the links bought you to product search pages. Today's item is "Personalize your gifts & holiday greetings," which brings you to a page where you can create cards, mailing labels, party invites, newlsetters, shopping lists and more. Surely Google will include ways to integrate your calendar with Google Docs and other services to help organize your holiday season. You can also add a countdown gadget to your iGoogle page.
