Looking for a gift idea for a movie lover? If you are, then you are in luck. I’ve compiled a list of Blu-rays and DVDs that stood out this past year. Thirteen films you should check out include Jurassic World, Pitch Perfect 2, Minions, Big Hero 6, Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Teen Beach Movie 2, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Insurgent, Home, Paper Towns, Vikings Season 3 and Home Alone Ultimate Collector’s Edition.
My kids and I are anxiously waiting for the release of the new Star Wars movie. We can’t wait to see The Force Awakens. We’re big Star Wars. The Force is strong in our family. So strong in fact that I’m sure my kids would be happy to receive more Star Wars toys for Christmas. And thanks to Hasbro, I’m giving away a Star Wars toy on my dad blog. The winner of my giveaway can select one of the Star Wars toys mentioned in this blog post. Continue reading too see my list of five Star Wars gift ideas.
Halloween is over, Thanksgiving is coming up, and Christmas is just around the corner. If you’re already thinking about what to get your kids for Christ
mas, then I have some ideas for you. It’s not easy finding the right toy for kids, right? It’s not easy for me either, but I do have a method that I like to use. Basically, I try to visualize in my mind if my children will like a particular toy. I factor in their personalities and things I know they like. For instance, I can visualize my two youngest kids role playing with FurReal Friends StarLily and Play All Day Elmo. My older boy (superhero fanboy) would probably like the Marvel’s Avengers Starter Pack, and my oldest girl (brainy child) would probably like Scrabble Twist. I don’t know for certain if my kids will like the toys I get them, but I think visualizing helps with the process.
If you follow my movie blog, then you know I enjoy watching movies. With that in mind, I put together a list of movies I wouldn’t mind getting for Father’s Day. The following are films I’ve seen this year that I think would make excellent Father’s Day gifts: Interstellar, Whiplash, John Wick, Big Hero 6 (review), The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (review), Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (review), Fury, The Equalizer, and Kingsman: The Secret Service.
There are only a few days left before Christmas. If you’re still looking for a gift idea, think about one of the cool Nest gadgets. They are nerdy gifts for the geek in your life.
I’m sure many of you are excited about Black Friday and of course all the pre Black Friday sales. But if you can’t find the right gift this weekend, then you should think about shopping at Barnes & Noble. In addition to zillions of books, Barnes & Noble also has toys, games, and the Nook tablet.
Mother’s Day is next Sunday so I thought I would share some gift ideas today. If the mom in your life is into gadgets, think about getting her an Amazon Fire TV, Kindle Fire HDX or Kindle Paperwhite. Fire TV is a small box that plugs into a TV and gives moms access to content from Netflix, Showtime, Hulu Plus and other media providers (including video on demand and video games). It’s a great gift for moms who are into entertainment. For moms who are into reading, there’s the Kindle Paperwhite. The e-reader is small, but it can hold up to 1,100 books (not including free cloud storage). For moms who love books, surfing the web, playing games, and watching movies, there’s the Kindle Fire HDX. The device is a tablet that lets moms do it all. Not only will the Kindle Fire HDX entertain moms, the tablet can also act as a babysitter via the Kindle FreeTime feature that lets moms create customized profiles for children. With FreeTime, mothers can set daily screen limits and give access to appropriate content for their kids. Continue reading for other Mother’s Day gift ideas.
