It’s that time of year…

It’s that time of year where we start to think about holiday shopping, cooking, gift giving and giving back.

We are always looking for fun and new products out there for our friends and family.

If you are tired of buying the same gifts well here are some new, different and innovative products for everyone. It can be such a difficult time for many people – finding the right gift for people is a tricky task. Whether you want to take the person out somewhere special, pick them up a little something small, or Design your photo blankets to give something unique and special, you need the inspiration and ideas to help you.

Melissa had the opportunity this morning to work with some wonderful companies and share holiday gift ideas with stations around the country. Here are some new and fun products to check out!

Grease The Video Game: I love games that the family can play together that get us up and moving and this one is awesome. You can sing or dance to your favorite Grease songs and up to 8 people can play. Available for $49.99 for Xbox Kinect and Playstation Move. If you love gaming as a family, you can’t go wrong with games from Nintendo – particularly the Mario franchise. Check out mario and luigi superstar saga rom to see how you get on and then think about branching out into their wealth of other games. Kids and adults alike love them and it’s quite easy to get lost in them for hours. They really are beautifully crafted!
