Mother’s Day is this Sunday. If you’re still looking for an idea (or completely forgot because you’ve a dork), consider a Kindle or Fire HD for the geek mom in your life. For instance, you can purchase a Kindle e-reader for only $59 on Amazon.com. And the special price includes free shipping!
Dads and kids, Mother’s Day is less than two weeks away. If you’re looking for an idea, then check out this list of Mother’s Day gift ideas compiled by my wife.
My wife put together a list of gift ideas for Valentine’s Day. All the gift are for women. I’m not sure if she’s telling me my Valentine gifts suck or if she wants me to get her something from her list. Probably both — she did tell me her taste is very different from mine, which is another way of saying it would never occur to me that my wife would want a pair of $50 flip flops.
I have a giveaway sponsored by GiftSling (Facebook | Twitter) and I have no idea what the prize will be. That’s actually the idea behind their online gift-giving service. To find a gift for your someone, GiftSling.com asks you a series of questions about your friend. After you have answered the questions, GiftSling.com selects a gift from their inventory and ships it out to your friend. They don’t tell you what they selected so you won’t know until you get a call from your friend. GiftSling.com sounds like a fun way to select a present for the people in your life that are hard to buy for.
Father’s Day is only four days away. If you have not found the perfect gift for dad, I’ve put together another list of Father’s Day gift ideas. I’m behind too. I’ve been meaning to put together my Father’s Day gift guide at the start of the month, but I’ve been swamped with reviews and giveaways. Anyways, below are Father’s Day gift ideas that I have not already covered on my dad blog.
Valentine’s Day is a week away and thanks to 1-800-Flowers.com (Facebook | Twitter), I’m giving away flowers on my dad blog. Sweet! As many dads and moms know, 1-800-Flowers.com offers a great selection of beautiful flowers and gifts for Valentine’s Day and other special occassions. You simply select what you want, and the flowers are delivered to the special person in your life.
Valentine’s Day is 12 days away. If you are still looking for gift ideas, check out my list below. All the gifts are under $35 and the list doesn’t include jewelry, flowers, or lingerie (is this a gift for a woman, man, or both?). BTW, the Amazon team is trying to convince me a Kindle Wireless Reading Device would make an excellent Valentine’s gift. To me, the Kindle seems more like a birthday, Mother’s/Father’s Day, or Christmas gift. On the other hand, if you bundle the Kindle with a bunch of love stories (like the ones written by Nicholas Sparks), then that would be a good Valentine’s gift for a book lover. On another note, if you are thinking about breakfast in bed with your loved one, then check out these handy items:
- Valentine’s Day-I Love You Egg Shaper ($5.49)
- Valentines Day XOXO Ice Tray ($8.99)
- Wilton Decorative Preferred 6-Inch Heart Pan ($9.46)
- Wilton Valentine’s 6 Piece Mini Cutter Set ($6.76)
- Wilton Mini Heart Silicone Baking Cups ($10.70)
- Wilton Valentine Nonpareils Sprinkles, 5.25-Ounce Containers ($3.00)
