I love gifts that you can customize like Tervis cups. They are the perfect gift for everyone on your list. Tervis has thousands of designs, including professional sports teams from the NFL®, MLB®, NHL® and NBA®, hundreds of colleges, Disney, Marvel®, Star Wars™ and Hello Kitty®, just to name a few. You can also create the perfect gift by customizing Tervis products with your favorite photos, text and more using the Tervis Customyzer. Or if you prefer, you can personalize one of their existing designs with your name or initials. Best of all, they keep cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot. Tervis products are made in America and have a lifetime guarantee.

What about a feel good gift for the season?
One of my favorite gifts really embodies the holiday spirit. It’s the Aflac Holiday Duck. This little guy is adorable and he quacks just like the duck in the commercials. The best part is that all net proceeds go toward pediatric cancer treatment and research at the participating children’s cancer facility nearest to where each duck is sold. You can purchase your duck at more than 360 Macy’s stores across the country or online at AflacHolidayDuck.com.
This year’s duck was designed by 14-year-old Michelle Nguyen of John’s Creek, Georgia. Michelle is a patient at the Aflac Cancer & Blood Disorders Center. She has a rare, genetic blood defect called thalassemia and needs a bone marrow transplant. Michelle is hoping that she will find a match soon and that she can help raise awareness of the need for bone marrow donor registration.

What hot tech gifts should we have on our list this year?
I would check out the Roku 3 box. It’s the easiest way to bring broadband television directly into any room. You can stream 1,000+ channels of movies, TV shows, sports and more to any HDTV. Plus, you can find your favorite movies and shows in a flash from top channels like Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video and VUDU.
Another cool tech gift is Polaroid’s 10-Megapixel Instant Print Digital Camera. Not only does it provide you with instant printed photos, it also saves digital copies and allows for sharing via social media.
What are some trends we can expect to see?
A lot of shoppers like to browse products on their mobile devices. I expect to see more retail apps this holiday season that make mobile checkout an easier experience for shoppers. Another trend you’ll see is an increase in promotional Tweets and retail ads on your Facebook timeline.
