Holiday Wish Guide: Last-Minute Gifts from Hallmark... Keepsake Ornaments, Retro Fun, and THE FORCE AWAKENS

With just two shopping days left until Christmas 2015, time is running out to find the perfect gift, but there's a one-stop shop that probably has a location right near you! I've been a Gold Crown Card-carrying fan of Hallmark for much of my adult life - my appreciation for Hallmark fueled by my mom, who started us on Keepsake Ornaments practically at birth. I've had several Hallmark items featured in my annual Holiday Wish Guide all season, but while I was traveling on some recent adventures, I returned home to a care package from my Hallmark friends in Kansas City - and that inspired this post. What was included was some right-in-the-money picks for our family, and a solid reminder that Hallmark has something for everyone. From thoughtful gifts, to the cards and wrap to present them in-style, they've got everything. I even did quite a bit of shopping there this season, but I can't show you what I bought... prying eyes on this site, if you catch my drift.

Watch: THE BRIAN SETZER ORCHESTRA Performs on CONAN...

Last night, THE BRIAN SETZER ORCHESTRA took a break from their 12th Annual Christmas Rocks! Tour to stop in and do a few songs on CONAN. The band performed "Here Comes Santa Claus" and "Yabba-Dabba Yuletide," along with a special version of the DICK VAN DYKE SHOW Theme Song in honor of Dick's appearance with Conan O'Brien as well. Check out some video below, and look for The BSO to hit a town near you. You can read my review of their recent stop in Waukegan,  Illinois right here. Their latest Holiday album, ROCKIN' RUDOLPH is out now on Surfdog Records.

Holiday Wish Guide: Craftsman Gifts for Makers Big and Small!

 Craftsman CrewTHE ROCK FATHER has partnered with Sears as a paid member of the Craftsman Crew.

When it comes to making, building, and creating with high-quality craftsmanship, few know the drill more than the big man in red - Santa Claus. If you've never had a chance to visit Santa's workshop in the North Pole, let me tell you that you're missing out. Sure, you might know Santa and his Elves for all the toys and games that they spend the first 11 months of each year creating, but the work that goes into keeping Santa's Sleigh running at top-speed is done in Speed Shop that rivals some of the best hot rod builders in the world - and Santa's ride is a 9 RP (that's Reindeerpower) force of gift delivering fury! The Elves know that Craftsman Tools power their workshop, and with that in mind you could give a gift that rocks for the budding maker on your list - whether they're young, old. naughty, nice, nice & naughty, or just getting started. Craftsman has a Holiday Gift Finder that can help you find just what's right, and as part of The Craftsman Crew, I'm sharing THE ROCK FATHER's Top Craftsman Gift Picks to highlight some of the best and brightest, alongside some sweet products - not just tools - that I bet you didn't even know that Craftsman had. Ho! Ho! Ho!

Holiday Wish Guide Giveaway: Win a PEANUTS Christmas Bouquet from Teleflora!

PEANUTS Brand AmbassadorAs a Peanuts Worldwide Brand Ambassador, I occasionally get offered some pretty cool products that feature Snoopy and the whole PEANUTS gang. For the Holiday Season, one thing I was offered was one of the new PEANUTS Bouquets from the folks at Teleflora - but I rather than send it here, I had it sent to my mom (currently in the hospital) in an effort to #SendCheer there, until we're able to visit in-person later this month. As many of you know,  I do love to spread the holiday cheer, and with that in mind, the folks at Teleflora are letting me gift another beautiful PEANUTS Bouquet to one of you!
