The worst thing ever is waiting for your coffee or tea to cool down only to then realize you’ve waited a little too long and it’s not hot enough! This mug warmer is perfect for those who like to enjoy a nice warm cup of tea or coffee without sipping too fast. Great for long study sessions or a nice evening in!

For the ones always on-the-go or without the latest version of the iPhone, this is a great stocking stuffer idea. The portable charger is so compact, it will fit in most purses or handbags. I purchased this on Amazon earlier this year and love how its size and ability to charge my phone to full power in such a short time. You can’t go wrong with this gift!

This game is for the young-at-heart on your list. Rated as the top holiday toy by Toy Insider and featured on Amazon’s 2017 gift guide, this gift is something the entire family can enjoy. Featuring fun mouth-pieces you’ve probably worn at the dentist before, this game challenges players to say words with the mouthpieces in while the other players try to guess what they are saying. Even more of a reason to put this gift on your list? This game was created by two JMU alumni!

For the forgetful ones in your life, this is the perfect gift. For just $34.99, give your loved ones some peace of mind by gifting them the “anything finder.” Simply attach the tile to car keys, your jacket, your dog or anything you don’t want to lose and track it using your Smartphone. Never lose your items again!

Amazon Fire-TV Stick, Now with Voice Control, $39.99


This is the perfect gift for anyone in your life since we all can admit to binge-watching our favorite TV shows. At an inexpensive $39.99, you have access to all of your streaming subscriptions: Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Video, and more by simply plugging in the HDMI stick to the back of your TV. I have the original Fire Stick without the voice control and don’t know how I ever lived without it before! Now with the voice control option, you can bet this will be on my list.

Bring this bluetooth speaker with you anywhere you go, without worrying about your speaker while you sit pool-side! This product got great reviews and is affordable and practical as far as speakers go!
