July 27th is National Scotch Day

That’s good because, as the Gift Gurus could tell you, each of the past three years, I’ve made a (quite vocal) New Year’s resolution to become acquainted with Scotch.

Nerd Alert: Newest Addition to “Game of Thrones” Series

Jerky tends to have the reputation as “mystery meat”, especially the bigger brands, but the makers of SlantShack Jerky are changing all that. Their focus on... Read more »

When it comes to gifting, Gifts.com loves to star gaze because a) it gives us some great on-trend gift ideas and b) celeb watching helps us feed the notion that gifting is aspirational- meaning, good gifts often tend to cater to recipients’ hopes and...

A Unique Gift for the Guy Who Has Everything

As a gift expert, a common question I hear when it comes to Father’s Day gifts is “What do I get for the guy who has everything?” Lately, when I’ve heard that very question, my quick reply is another question, “Does he have a custom made ukulele?” Didn’t think so. The “Make Your Own... Read more »
