My 2019 Holiday Gift List for Grown-Ups

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!


ūüéĄTECHNOLOGY GIFTS

tablift

I wrote this past week about tablift¬ģ. 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.


Kindle Fire


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!

Bravo to Amazon’s Multi- Emmy Nominated Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Includes Video Interview)

Amazon’s newest show – The Marvelous Mrs.Maisel has earned 14 Emmy Award nominations! Can you say – WOW! ¬†Quite a feat given that ¬†in recent years the vast majority of ¬†the golden Emmy award ¬†went ¬†to shows airing on Netflix,¬†¬†HBO and NBC.

Let’s start with why the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is worthy of all the kudos. ¬†Without a doubt the show is brilliantly written. But, I knew it was going to be a ¬†winner once I discovered that Amy Sherman – Palladino and Daniel Palladino were involved as the creative ¬†geniuses. Their signature snappy and witty scripts are the backbone of this show as it was with their previous break-out winner – the Gilmore Girls.¬† However, “Maisel” is much more edgy than the Gilmore Girls, which one easily discovers within the first episode.

Let’s break it down even more (SPOILER ALERT). ¬†Set in 1958, ¬†a time when women were expected to cook, clean and look pretty – “Midge” Maisel, played by the outstanding Rachel Brosnahan, ¬†finds herself as a Jewish woman with a cheating husband, Joel (Michael Zegen). He leaves her for an office romance… quite the shocker for Midge. ¬† Bad karma continues as ¬†Joel’s ¬†hopes of a career in comedy are seriously dashed due to his “borrowing” someone else’s material. (The someone being Bob Newhart) ¬†To complicate matters, Midge is no slouch at comedy either, and in fact, is the funnier of the two. ¬†The audience is let in to this little secret as it plays out in one of the funniest scenes filmed for a TV show.

The hilarity of the show also is due to the ¬†doting parents who raised Midge in a comfortable Manhattan lifestyle and their ¬†major dilemma as how to explain “the separation” to the Jewish community. ¬†Actors Tony Shalhoub and Marin Hinkle play Midge’s parents and they are HYSTERICAL.

Also among the superb roster of actors in this production is one who I always have enjoyed watching over the years, actor ¬†Kevin Pollack. ¬†Here he brilliantly portrays ¬†Midge’s soon to be ex-father-in law, Moishe Maisel. ¬†I had an opportunity to interview Kevin on the red carpet of the Oscar gifting suite hosted by ¬†Celebrity Connected¬†.

This is what he had to say about the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and its’ success:

 

 

 

Here’s to the success of the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and all involved. Thank you Kevin Pollak for your fun and candor.

Amazon Prime Day(s) Picks for Tech, Travel and Back to School (July 2018 Promo)

 

Let me start with this “disclaimer”… ¬†I shop local when I can because I love to support “Mom and Pop” stores in my own backyard. From¬† CRAFTED¬† in San Pedro with their original wares by local artisans to flea markets and local box stores. ¬†But, when I need something fast, not readily available or in bulk, I go to my computer and click on Amazon. ¬†In this blog, ¬†I am going to have a little fun and tell you about my favorite items for tech, travel and back to school as TOMORROW, July 16th, ¬†starts their widely popular AMAZON PRIME DAYS.¬† This is when they will suggest and make offers on thousands of GREAT DEALS! But, I am throwing my faves in to this “mix”, too!

And, in turn I want to know your favorites – so use the comment section below. ¬†Note, as am Amazon Influencer, I get my “own favorites page” that you will find right below. There are many more items listed on this page than blog space allows and that any proceeds from this page to me go directly to back to the community as I support a wide variety of charities.
