Every year I try to write a short list of recommended gift ideas for the holiday season. This year, I am including an eclectic list of suggestions – some that you will find on my Amazon list of holiday ideas and others that are “non- traditional”. I hope they pique your interest! Enjoy!
I wrote this past week about tablift®. Reminder: I am offering a GIVEAWAY CONTEST associated with this product until Dec. 2, 2019. . Simply go here to learn more about this accessory for your tablets and how to enter the giveaway. A super gift idea for most ages.
This is the PERFECT gift for any one who loves to read, take photos, play electronic games (like Solitaire, Scrabble, etc.) and watch prime videos! I use this every single time I fly! Price point is a smooth $29.99 on Amazon as a limited special here.
BLINK XT2 and ECHO DOT
I love our BLINK and if you are into home devices that are “smart” and convenient check out the BLINK XT2 and ECHO DOT combo pack. On sale CYBER MONDAY on AMAZON. Also, available as individual purchases.
Non-Traditional Gift Ideas
Here is my list of non-traditional gift ideas for this year. If you have any others to add – please do so in the comment section below.
1- HelpaTeacher.com and DonorsChoose.com. Two ways to help out teachers in need because educators never seem to have enough resources to help teach our children.
2. Adopt a Senior – An organization to help senior centers or individuals who do not have much family support. If this organization does not resonate with you, please consider donating to your local senior facility. One way is to help is to provide games for their group activities. Balls, giant BINGO games, decks of cards with large print and activity boards are all used in facilities that help our seniors, especially those with cognitive / memory issues. Here are some ideas if you wish to explore.
3. Donate to the arts. Every year there are local theaters, dance companies, museums, and more that are seeking funds in order to provide quality entertainment and activities for our communities. They need our help. Please consider donating locally or globally to keep the arts alive.
4. SHOP LOCAL. Buy goods or gift certificates to local restaurants, book stores, even service shops like cleaners, nail salons, grocery stores and hair stylists! Support our communities as well as your “friends” online.
5. #NoHungryKid.org – NO child should have a day where they feel hunger. Please support this organization (and if you give on #GivingTuesday contributions will be matched!)
Thanks for reading and happy shopping!
