Valentine’s Day 2015: Last-Minute Charitable Gift Ideas
Empress Eve   |  

Valentine's Day charity ideas

Valentine’s Day is here. Today. Right now. Are you still looking for a gift for that someone special in your life? Or do you want to give a little extra on this romantic holiday? Or perhaps you want to lead by example by helping others on this international day of love? Or maybe your Valentine already has everything they want? Or you could be someone who thinks it’s a holiday created by greeting card companies and you don’t go for the commercialism that comes with it?

If you said “yes” to one or more of the above scenarios, then I have a stress-free solution to resolve all your issues: Give a charitable gift this Valentine’s Day. For these items, most times, you can make a charitable donation in your love’s name and then print out an e-card or other message offered. You can add this to an existing gift or give it on its own. A good idea if you’re really down to the wire would be to run to a Walgreens or CVS (some kind of pharmacy type place), grab a tiny box of chocolates and/or tiny teddy bear, put it together with the charitable gift message/print-out into a pretty gift bag (add tissue paper if possible to pretty it up), which will make the presentation lovely and not make it seem like you wait til the last minute.

See below for our list of Last-Minute Charitable Gift Ideas For Valentine’s Day.

Holiday Gift Guide: Last Minute Ideas banner

Christmas is mere days away and there’s a good chance you’re still searching for some last-minute gifts. If you want to avoid the craziness of the Mall, you can still shop online and sneak in some Christmas Eve deliveries and/or have some digital gifts to have ready for Christmas Day.

There’s still time for you to order gifts through Amazon and have them physically arrive by Christmas Eve (see details below). There’s also plenty of digital gifts to give: You can also gift ebooks, MP3 music, apps, digital comics, and video game downloads; send a gift card electronically; or make a charitable donation in the recipient’s name. Either email the recipient their gift, or print up an e-card and hand it to them. Take a look at our various Gift Guides for inspiration.

Here’s some last-minute online gift ideas …

You Need This Light-Up ‘Star Wars’ Yoda Tree Topper
Pfeff-Bot   |  

12-inch Yoda with LED Lightsaber Tree Topper

With the debut of Star Wars: The Force Awakens still far, far away (December 18, 2015), there are a few ways to get your Star Wars fix; however, this little holiday item may just shine the brightest of all.

This 12-inch Star Wars Yoda with LED Lightsaber Tree Topper by Kurt Adler has been tested and approved. It all started with a Geeks of Doom Holiday Gift Guide. These are not just for our readers, folks. My interest was immediately piqued when I stumbled upon this Christmas Tree Topper on Amazon. And when I added it on a whim to my Amazon wishlist, I had no idea that this little piece of Christmas magic would change my life.

I was lucky enough to receive this topper in the mail as a Christmas gift, and when I opened the box, I was stunned. There is no other way to put it (okay, I have a few more ways). This is Yoda as you have never seen him before. His beautiful, handpainted face is almost as impressive as his bright green, shining lightsaber. My living room has changed from a cute decorated room to a magical land of wonder and amusement where the Force is extremely strong (I may be exaggerating a little bit). But really, when I beheld this Yoda at the top of my Christmas tree, my jaw dropped.

Holiday Geek Gift Guide 2014: Music

Holiday Music Gift Guide 2014

Once again, the holidays are upon us, and once again, the dilemmas of gift buying start to take hold. In a sea of unending choices and genres of items so far stretching it can make one’s head do a full 360-degree revolution, one thing always holds collectively revered by all: music. Whether giving or receiving, the sharing of music is universal, timeless, and always satisfactory. 2014 had a wide range of exciting, cool, and unique music releases for sale, most of them firmly affixed with the metaphoric legend “must-have” right out of the box. So that said, from Led Zeppelin to Bowie to Rush and more, here’s a twelve pack of sonic gems from the classic rock genre (a genre which stubbornly and thankfully survives in this decidedly different music age we live in today) that’s sure to give ear-to-ear smiles to the faces and grooves of the lucky recipients of them.

Holiday Game Gift Guide 2014

2014 is a year that can only be classified as a down year for video game. With the new console generation launching during holiday season 2013, this year was to be jam-packed with new games for those systems. The problem is, most of the games that were announced for 2014 to help sell the new consoles to excited fans were announced far too soon, leading to many of them being pushed back to 2015.

All of that said, there are still plenty of video games to be had or given to friends and family this holiday season. If you continue below, you can find some good suggestions for all of your video game gift buying needs in this year’s Holiday Geek Gift Guide 2014: Video Games!
