Valentine’s Day 2017: Last-Minute Charitable Gift Ideas

Valentines Day charitable gift ideas

Valentine’s Day is almost here. And if you haven’t acquired some gifts to give yet, then chances are you need some help. So here are some lovely stress-free last-minute charitable gifts you can give this Valentine’s Day. Even if you already have items to give, it’s always nice to add something extra that can help others.

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

Here’s what you do: Make a charitable donation online — in some instances you can do so in the recipient’s name — then print out an e-card or other message offered. You can add this to an existing gift or give it on its own. If you want, you can run 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 waited till the last minute.

Oh, and these are tax-deductible! And you’ll be helping others, while giving the gift. So, it’s a win all around.

Creepy Christmas: A Merry Macabre Coloring Book
By Sam Shearon
Publisher: Vesuvian Books
166 pages | 8.5 x 0.4 x 11 inches
Release date: October 18, 2016

It’s Christmas time, so I should be wrapping gifts and baking cookies, but instead, I’ve been coloring in my new Creepy Christmas coloring book!

That’s right, author and artist Sam Shearon has injected some terror into this holiday season with his adult coloring book Mister Sam Shearon’s Creepy Christmas: A Merry Macabre Coloring Book. Well, actually, as the book tells us, the creepy aspect has always been a part of the season, with tales of legendary creatures like Krampus, Wendigo, and the Abominable Snowman. For the traditionally innocuous elements, such as toys, snow globes, and even Rudolph, Shearon converts them into terrifying yet somehow still festive depictions just begging to be colorized.

Relax By The Fire In Your Favorite Marvel Heroes’ Home (Videos)

Marvel's Iron Man Fireplace

Videos of a fireplace to put on your TV or computer screen this time of year is nothing new. You can even find a few on Netflix. Even without the added benefit of providing heat, they’re relaxing and make wherever you are feel more like home.

If you’re a geek looking for a nice cracklin’ fire to put on in the background while working or hanging out with friends and family, Marvel has you covered. They’ve released a collection of videos of the fireplaces in various Marvel heroes’ homes. Each is just over an hour long, and includes Captain America‘s Brooklyn apartment, Ms. Marvel‘s New Jersey home, Thor‘s Asgard home, Iron Man‘s Manhattan apartment, and the Guardians of the Galaxy‘s spaceship and its fancy futuristic fire. There’s also a second close-up version of each of these.

Find your perfect geeky fire below.

Holiday Cat Lovers Gift Guide 2016

Thanksgiving has come and gone, and Black Friday left us — more or less — free from torrents of blood running red in our streets. As we move beyond the shopping hell that launched the holiday season, we can now focus on what it’s all about — giving people cool stuff. And while Christmas might have other meanings, that isn’t what this article is about. So without further ado, I’d like to list a couple of my personal suggestions to make the holidays substantially more holly jolly — especially if you have a cat… well, only if you have a cat, actually.

Here’s the 2016 Holiday Geek Gift Guide for Cat Lovers…
