Kristin’s 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

untitled

Hello there, my fellow holiday shoppers!

With tomorrow being Thanksgiving (seriously, where the heck did the year go??) and Black Friday looming, I thought I’d gather some of my favorite ideas for holiday gifts. Why does my opinion matter? It doesn’t, but I’ll share my favs with you anyway!

  1. Apple Products 

    Ok, so one of my favorite Apple products are the AirPods. I was skeptical at first because I thought FOR SURE I would lose at least one, or both, or the charging case they rest in, but I’m happy to report that they’re all still in my possession! These things are compact, they sound great and they’re very inconspicuous. I haven’t seen any deals for Black Friday, so you’re looking at a $159.99 price tag unless some deals pop up. I promise you they’re worth it.

    I also saw that the iPad Mini 4 Wi-Fi 128GB will be on sale at Best Buy for $249.99 on Black Friday and the 9.7″ Wi-Fi iPads will be $249.99 at Target (these are also compatible with the Apple Pencil, which is also an amazing buy).

     

  2. The Giving Keys 

    The Giving Keys are my go-to for thoughtful gifts. They’re basically necklaces, bracelets & earrings that contain stamped keys with your choice of a word on it. For example, I have anxiety on occasion, so I have a silver Classic Key Necklace with the word ‘BREATHE’ on it. Their mission is to help those affected by homelessness. You wear the item and then have the option to pass it on to someone who might need that message as well. I’m not sure if there are any Black Friday deals, but there are black key necklaces that are BOGO, there is free shipping on orders $75+ and there’s a little bar at the top of the website that states, “Spend $50, get $10 off.”

  3. Alex and Ani 

    I only just starting buying Alex and Ani bracelets, but they’re excellent gifts to give! Right now they have their Black Friday sale going on with 25% off of (mostly) everything on the site in addition to free shipping.

  4. PuraVida 

    Pura Vida Bracelets are threaded bracelets that you can get in almost any variety of colors. There are some with charms on them, some are braided, some support charities and all help support artisans in Costa Rica. They’re durable and extremely light-weight. Their Black Friday sale includes 50% off all bracelets, plus free shipping on orders $30+. If you’re reading this after Black Friday, you can use my ambassador code – According2Kristin – to get 20% off your order. These are great unisex little stocking stuffers that come in their own individual bags!

  5. Sand Cloud 

    Sand Cloud is an organization that has been featured on Shark Tank. Their mission is to support marine life and to #SavetheFishies. With their convenient and trendy towels, t-shirts (for both men and women) and accessories, by helping their cause 10% of all profits are donated to several organizations that help preserve marine life. Their Black Friday sale includes 50% off all products and free shipping on orders $100+. If you miss their Black Friday sale, you can use my ambassador code – KristinTru25 – for 25% off your order. These towels come rolled up in a compact little bundle of greatness.

    sandcloud.com

     

  6. Subscription Boxes

    There are a ton of subscription boxes out there that are great to give as gifts. Here are some of my favorites: Ipsy, BirchBox, Book of the Month, Harry’s Shave Club, and more. You can just Google subscription boxes and find just about anything you’re looking for. One of my ultimate favorites is FabFitFun. They offer seasonal boxes with full-size products that you can even customize if you become a select member. You can sign up for a FabFitFun box by using my affiliate link HERE and make sure to enter the code WINTERFUN at checkout to receive $10 off your first box.

  7. Metal Marvels

    Metal Marvels is a new find for me. They have everything from jewelry to wine cups to tumblrs to profanity pillows. The majority of their products contain sarcastic, profanity-laced sayings that are hilarious and trendy. Their Black Friday sale will launch on Friday at 10am PST, but if you sign up for their email, text, or VIB list before Friday, you’ll get an even bigger discount. Also, the first 200 orders over $150 (after discounts) will receive a gift set worth $150 for free!

    metalmarvels.com

  8. When all else fails, you can buy your favorites some vinyl records for the music lover and sneakers for the sneaker head. Last year, I stuffed a box with all of my niece’s favorite movies, so that’s always an option. Best Buy and Target have fantastic deals on movies for Black Friday, so check their ads for details.

    Some of my favorite stores for odd gifts are Francesca’s and Urban Outfitters.

    You can also check stores like Hollister that are offering a 50% discount. Kohl’s also has very good discounts available for Black Friday, along with their signature $15 for every $50 spent!

 

I hope this list helped out even just a little bit! If it did, then I have done my job! I hope ya’ll have a fantastic time shopping for your loved ones, and I hope my suggestions help in saving you some money while doing so!

 

SERENITY | New Trailer Released | In Theaters January 25, 2019!

IMG_4218Aviron Pictures has released a new trailer for SERENITY, a daring original thriller from Oscar nominated director Steven Knight. The film stars Matthew McConaughey as a fishing boat captain whose quiet life is shattered when his ex-wife tracks him down with a desperate plea for help. Also starring Anne Hathaway, Jason Clarke, Djimon Hounsou, Jeremy Strong and Diane Lane.

SYNOPSIS: From the creative mind of Oscar nominee Steven Knight comes a daringly original, sexy, stylized thriller. Baker Dill (Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey) is a fishing boat captain leading tours off a tranquil, tropical enclave called Plymouth Island. His quiet life is shattered, however, when his ex-wife Karen (Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway) tracks him down with a desperate plea for help. She begs Dill to save her – and their young son – from her new, violent husband (Jason Clarke) by taking him out to sea on a fishing excursion, only to throw him to the sharks and leave him for dead. Karen’s appearance thrusts Dill back into a life he’d tried to forget, and as he struggles between right and wrong, his world is plunged into a new reality that may not be all that it seems.

ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL | Official Teaser-Trailer Released! | In Theaters December 12th

IMG_4207

This December, get ready for a fairy tale that gives zero F’s.

To kick off the holiday season, the (sometimes) good guy in red is delivering the official trailer for ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL from 20th Century Fox! Audiences of almost all ages will soon be able to enjoy the Merc with the Mouth’s reimagining of Deadpool 2 filtered through the prism of childlike innocence.

“Fox has been asking for a PG-13 basically since the start in 2006,” Ryan Reynolds told Deadline. “I’ve said no since 2006. Now, this one time, I said ‘Yes’ on two conditions. First, a portion of the proceeds had to go to charity. Second, I wanted to kidnap Fred Savage. The second condition took some explaining…”

Fred Savage will join Reynolds in new scenes for ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL in an homage to Savage’s starring role in the 1987 bedtime-story classic THE PRINCESS BRIDE. Fred remarked, “while my participation in this film was anything but voluntary, I am happy to learn that Fudge Cancer will be the beneficiary of this shameless cash grab”

For every ticket sold, $1 will go to the charity Fudge Cancer – previously known as Fuck Cancer, who have graciously changed their name to be more PG-13 friendly for the 12 days of ONCE UPON A DEAD POOL’S release.


ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL
 opens in theaters for a limited engagement this holiday season from December 12 through December 24, 2018!

ARCHIE FAULKS Releases Beautiful ‘Blackout’ Video

‘BLACKOUT’
VIDEO RELEASED
WATCH HERE

Archie Faulks has shared the video for his new single ‘Blackout.’

A succession of beautifully shot abstract clips, the video conveys a surreal dreamlike ambience that simultaneously straddles both the romantic and unnerving; an ethereal visual journey into the fantastic and unsettling mind-set of an individual plagued by lonely, obsessive desire.

The song premiered on the Radio 1 ‘Chillest Show’ with Jamz Supernova in for Phil Taggart. A strong supporter of Archie, Phil previously called him “a serious talent”.
‘Blackout’ follows the release of Archie’s debut single ‘It Rains’ earlier this year. The song received support from Radio 1 and Radio X and has clocked up almost a million streams across Apple Music & Spotify.

The release led Archie to sell out his debut headline show at London’s Servant Jazz Quarters, and also saw him taken out on European tours with Rue Royale where he played three shows in Holland & Isaac Gracie where he performed four dates in Germany. He has also just played his very first live dates in the US and played two sold out shows in New York last week.

Archie will be announcing further live performances soon.
