Holiday Gift Guide for Your Family


The holiday season is officially here and with it comes friends, family and GIFTS! Looking at your gift list can leave you wanting to crawl into a hole and not come out until the new year. Don’t get overwhelmed with your holiday gift list this year. Instead, use the following guide to help you figure out what gift to get each family member on your list.

1.) Gifts for Grandparents. Whether it’s for your grandparents or your kids grandparents you can never go wrong a Frameology frame. Put a photo of your family in a nice, quality frame.They will enjoy the personal touch of the gift, but will also like the fact that they can see your beautiful faces any day of the year.

2.) Gifts for Mom. Likely one of the most important people on you list, you want to make sure that you get your mom the perfect gift this holiday season. After all, she did give you the gift of life. Something personal is always a good choice for mom. A piece of jewelry with her birthstone or a charm that relates to her interests is an excellent choice for a thoughtful, personal gift.

3.) Gifts for Dad. We can’t forget dear old dad! Give him something that directly relates to his hobbies. If he is the outdoorsy type, grab him some fishing, hiking or camping gear. An avid golfer, go for some new golf balls or a round at his favorite club. If dad is a sports buff, get him tickets to his favorite sports team. He will be overjoyed with any of these gifts.

4.) Gifts for Teenagers. If you have teenagers, you know how difficult they can be to buy for. They are too old for toys, but still want to open gifts. You could give them clothes or gift cards and they would be happy, but if you want to really win them over this holiday season get them a gift that they’ll remember. Concert tickets to see their favorite band or sports tickets to see their favorite team is a great gift for teens. If they don’t already have one, a new cell phone, tablet or laptop are also good choices. Any of these gifts will make you the favorite this holiday season.

5.) Gifts for Kids. Toys. It’s as easy as that. What else could a kid want? Some of the hottest toys this season are trolls - yes, trolls are back, Playstation VR, Shimmer and Shine Dolls, or Lego Minecraft Kits. Depending on the kids age and gender there are a number of toys that you could buy. Even sticking to the classics - trucks, dolls, barbies and Legos - will make the kids light-up with happiness this holiday season.


Gift giving is a large part of the holiday season, but it’s important to remember that is is not the most important part. Spending time with you friends, family and loved ones is the best gift that you could give anyone on your list.

  1. I think one of the more difficult groups to purchase for are those older relatives. They are usually in the downsizing stage of life and sure don't want a bunch of stuff. Photos, as mentioned, are a great idea and less likely to cause angst about clutter! Also, gifts of time, a meal or outing are good.

  2. These days I tend to lean towards gifts that offer an experience like meals and outings.

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void.
