Gift Ideas: Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer

Sunday, December 11, 2016

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer is one of those classic songs that was turned into a television special...or was it the other way around? Regardless, this song inspired some fun gift ideas. 

“You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, you know Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen”
1. To keep track of all of these people you “know,” it sounds like you need an address book. I love this one from Rifle Paper Co!

“The most famous reindeer of all”
2. I was trying to think of who, in my opinion, was the most famous person in the world. The only name that jumped out was a celebrity who shall not be named on this blog (K family has E! Reality show), so I went to Google. It told me that the most famous person is Marilyn Monroe. And that’s how I ended up on this Marilyn Monroe Warhol! Call me crazy, but a little over $1,000 is lower than I expected for an authentic Warhol!

“Had a very shiny nose. And if you ever saw it. You would even say it glows.”
3. I know, I know. Gifting someone an exercise class can come across offensive, but for the yogi in your life (in Pittsburgh) Amazing Yoga has an upcoming “Glow With The Flow” class that combines techno music, yoga, heat and a blacklight!

“All of the other reindeer. Used to laugh and call him names.”
4. Sounds like you need a book about bullying. I’m going to recommend this book called “Pushing Isn’t Funny” because I may need this (or DO NOT BITE YOUR FRIENDS) version for my 16-month-old and her “friends.”

“They never let poor Rudolph. Join in any reindeer games.”
5. Rudolph needs to take things into his own hands with some new games. I love adding a board game to my list because honestly wine, snacks, beer and a board game are totally my ideal Saturday night. I’ve got my eye on Trivial Pursuit Harry Potter edition, Trivial Pursuit 2000s, and the Oregon Trail card game.

“As they shouted out with glee, Rudolph the red-nose Reindeer. You'll go down in history”
6. I do love to give someone the gift of a book (not on an e-reader). Typically history
books are boring, but this year Hamilton is rather “hot,” so how about the book Alexander Hamilton.
