Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you are having a fantastic day with family and friends. While you enjoy delicious food, you might already be planning your Christmas shopping. I try to avoid the crazy crowds on Black Friday and shopping on Thanksgiving is not an option. That’s why I enjoy online shopping so much. No near crashes or parking lot mayhem. Heartland America is a great place to start your online shopping. While I was planning my list, I put together some gift ideas for your Christmas list.
First of all, I’m sure you have some kids of all age who have electronics on their wishlist.
Remote control drones are still a hot gadget, and they keep getting better and better. This quadcopter from Playtek comes with a control to plug a smartphone into. So you can experience the flight right from your iPhone® or Android®.
There’s nothing like a new laptop to bring a smile to anyone’s face. With 2GB of RAM, duo-core processor, and 100GB hard drive, it can handle both work and play with ease.
For those who love to take their media everywhere, the iLive DVD player and boombox is a fantastic gift. Watch movies on the 7″ LCD screen or listen to music with either the CD player or iPod®/iPhone® 30 pin dock. Whatever they choose, they’ll always be able to enjoy themselves wherever they go.
To capture memories all year long, the HD Camcorder from Bell+Howell has full 1080p HD and 10x optical zoom. It can also take still pictures in 16MP. Your budding videographer will also love the time-lapse recording and slow motion playback.
Movie buffs need surround sound. The built-in woofers and rich bass of the Fisher surround sound bar give that theater sound without the wires everywhere. And with Bluetooth connectivity, you can stream music from a smartphone or other Bluetooth enabled device.
For the men in your life, I’ve got some great gift ideas to help cross them off your list.
Keep your man warm and looking fine with this set of three thermal shirts from Marino Bay. This set includes includes one of each color: navy, charcoal, and oatmeal. The relaxed fit and 3-button Henley style make these long sleeved shirts perfect for layering or wearing on their own.
For both style and functionality, nothing is beats a good belt. These genuine leather belts from Stacy Adams have both quality and style. Available in both black and brown. Whether you choose one or both, he’ll love his new belt.
Does your man love the outdoors, even in the winter? Check out these long sleeve flannel shirts from Marino Bay. The 100% cotton flannel is not only warm but soft. They are great for a weekend at the cabin or just snuggling together by the fire.
His cell phone can stay safely in his pocket as he checks the time on a great watch. These watches give a personal touch to any outfit. From geek chic to classically rugged, these watches make a fantastic gift.
What about the ladies on your list? Here are some great gift ideas that they’ll love and maybe you can get a little something for yourself.
Keep your feet nice and warm with a pair of slippers. Both the Plymouth Mocs suede ankle boots and pink leather moccasins are lined in soft Merino wool for warmth and comfort. With a high density outer sole, they are perfect for running outside to grab the mail.
Another way to stay warm and cozy is a micro chenille jacket. Chenille is super soft and the jacket has pockets to keep your hands safe from the chilly winter wind. It comes in nightshade purple, wildberry pink, teal, nickel, and black so you can get everyone a color they will love.
For those who love to cook, why not get them a new set of pots and pans? This non-stick ceramic cookware is actually infused with copper for a strong, scratch-free surface. With 10 pieces included in this great cookware set, any chef will be thrilled with this gift.
