Gift, food, drinks and lifestyle billboards filling the L.A. skies in November 2014...

Just as with the fashion industry, this time of year influences other advertisers and what they feature in the skies of L.A. Here's a selection of the technology, food, drinks and other lifestyle billboards that caught my eye this month.

Technology billboards
What does Heidi Klum like in bed Sharper Image billboard
In the run up to the holiday seasons, electronics and novelty product retailer Sharper Image launched this gift guide ad campaign, featuring semi-naked supermodel Heidi Klum and double entendre taglines to help turn heads and grab attention, trying to make gadgets sexy.

And if you're a fan of the German supermodel, you'll also enjoy these other scantily-clad Heidi Klum billboards.

Food and drinks billboards
Erewhon Market turkey billboard
Before we get to Christmas though, there was the small matter of Thanksgiving, a time to indulge in food, drink and (for some) American Football.
Burnt Thanksgiving turkey billboard
Erewhon Market and La Brea Bakery had two different takes on how to advertise for Thanksgiving, one with a mouth-watering roast, the other with a burnt bird. Did humour or food pornography win you over?
Giant Herradura Tequila horseshoe billboard
If you're visiting friends and family this time of year, then it's rude not to bring along a bottle of something to share with your hosts. Tequila Herradura had this giant billboard towering over the Sunset Strip to remind passersby of their quality sip-grade spirit, the perfect party drink.
Deleón Tequila bottle billboard
Meanwhile DeLeón Tequila didn't want to be left out as the tequila brand returned to the skies of L.A. in November with this cool creative.
Absolut Vodka Andy Warhol billboard
Whilst Absolut added an Andy Warhol style makeover to its bottle design to make the holidays pop and provide the perfect present for vodka lovers.
Nespresso VertuoLine billboard
And from the world of alcohol to the world of coffee, and Nespresso appeared in the skies again to tempt you to buy their VertuoLine coffee and espresso machines for the java lover in your life.

Finance billboards
Giant Visa black card billboard
If you were wondering how you were going to buy all these presents for you loved ones, then Visa has the perfect credit card for you, the luxury stainless steel Black Card.

Theme park and travel billboards
World of Color Olaf Frozen snowman billboard
Amusement parks were also getting in the swing of things for the festive season, with themed holiday ad creatives, like these for Disneyland featuring popular characters from Frozen and Cars.
Mater Towriffic Holidays Disneyland billboard
The 'Olaf' the Snowman billboard is a new outdoor addition, but some of the others have appeared in previous years, so be sure to check out these other Disneyland Just Got Merrier billboards.
Queen Mary Chill Christmas experience billboard
Meanwhile down in Long Beach the docked Queen Mary cruise ship has a winter wonderland experience called 'Chill' to get Southern Californians, who are more used to beaches and sunshine, in the festive mood.
Giant Turkey Hagia Sophia tourism billboard
From local attractions to worldwide destinations, and the Turkey tourism board is back in the skies of L.A. trying to encourage visitors with images of the architecturally interesting Hagia Sophia in Istanbul.
Stay classy LA American Airlines billboard
And American Airlines had this locally tailored ad creative to appeal to Los Angelenos when they were deciding which airline to use to travel home for the holidays, or to get away from it all.

Performing Arts billboards
Wicked musical billboard LA 2014
In addition to all the gift ideas, at this time of year there's always a touring musical like Wicked to go see as a festive treat.

Dating billboards
Zoosk First comes like dating billboard
And I'm not sure if this time of year is when some people are feeling lonely and want to find that special someone, but this month these billboards for dating site Zoosk popped up to help you find your perfect match.
First comes like Zoosk dating billboard
Unlike the rash of hookup apps that have sprung up, Zoosk wants you to try and find someone you like before jumping into bed or rushing to tie the knot.

As you can see there's been an eclectic mix of billboards this month and if you like these outdoor ads, be sure to check out the stylish fashion billboards filling L.A.'s skies in November.

Stay tuned in the days to come for more billboard roundups from the world of TV, movies and music...
