Christmas may be over, but New Year's is just days away. It's the perfect time for bubbly champagne, celebrating brand new opportunities to come and all things glittery and sparkly. Maybe you want to get something glamorous for your host or hostess, or something to create sparkle in your own space.
If you're like me, you're really tired of deals being thrown at you from every angle. My inbox has been nothing but sales pitches all week! While the deals are great, it's just too much, and I just deleted most of it. That said, I've always wanted an ugly sweater for all of the ugly sweater events we've been invited to over the years, so I thought I'd pass this geeky deal along. There's a deadpool sweater, as well as a Darth Vader one, and some geeky animal sweaters, too.
I snicker every time someone asks me, "What day is Halloween again?" The same day it was last year! It's a fair question if you're wondering what day of the week it falls on or if your town is honoring it a different day, of course. All of these deals are good for the day of Halloween only so be sure to grab them while they're here!
Tax Day might be a headache for most people, but it's also a great day of savings at plenty of stores. Did you know you can get hotel rebates, free cookies at Great American Cookies and free shaved ice from Kona? You can even save $25 on Rail Europe bookings! National Park fees are also waived today, so head over for a visit if you haven't yet.
If you prefer dining out instead of cooking for the holidays, there are plenty of great Easter deals and restaurants that will be open for you to choose from this year. Whether you want takeout, dine-in options or even delivery, you can eat what you want this Easter.
Holiday shopping can be great fun, especially if you are shopping for someone with fun interests and tastes. When you have to shop for someone a little... well... boring, it can be a drag. The person may not even be boring, but perhaps you don't know them that well. Maybe he or she just has opposite interests from you. Whatever the situation, it can make shopping a bit difficult. That's where these great lists come into play!
While searching for an affordable yet workable pottery wheel for my tween (yeah, I couldn't find one), I ran across so many great craft items for the holidays. The kits come out like crazy this time of year! Whether you want to learn to give massages, make your own soaps or candles or even learn lettering, there's a kit for it. I may go with something like that; last year she enjoyed her claymation and felting kits.
Are you shopping for a bunch of tech lovers this holiday season? If so, there are some amazing gifts out there to choose from this year! Take, for example, the Google Daydream. It's a virtual reality headset that's not as expensive as most others on the market and works with any Daydream compatible phone.
While we're in the middle of the holiday season, it can be difficult to remember the real reasons for the season, whether they are simply being together as a family, your religious celebrations or peace on earth and goodwill toward humankind. Today is Giving Tuesday, a time to give back and think about the causes, charities and important social issues that matter most to you.
I have to admit that I am a total sucker for Cyber Monday deals. Did you know that a lot of museums, zoos and other places offer tickets or memberships at half-price on Cyber Monday? That's my biggest attraction to the sale, and while I don't always save up for it, when I'm able it's very exciting.
Black Friday, on the other hand, is something that I typically strive to avoid. It's way too crowded, hectic and busy for my taste, but I know lots of people who enjoy it, prompting me to ask this question: What are your best Black Friday tips?
