“Santa Claus Is Coming to Town”

“You better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
He’s making a list,
He’s checking it twice,
He’s gonna find out who’s naughty or nice
Santa Claus is coming to town…”
You too can get into the spirit of the season with our festive wares. We have ideas for the whole family: Young, the young at heart and the old(er) wiser folks too.

November is Movember

November 6th, 2018

The Month Formerly Know as November – Movember

Start your engines…No, your stubble and get growing!

It is that time to bring awareness to prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s health issues.

In reality,  this matter should be discussed every month but with November here, we mean Movember, it’s given a special honor throughout this particular month.

During Movember, mustaches (moustaches, stache, mouth brow, flavour savour, soup strainer, lip foliage etc.) are grown. Some do it with enthusiasm and some with disdain but at the end of the month it is for a good cause.

Participants collect donations from family, friends or work-mates for their growing efforts so this disease can be obliterated.

Thank you for sacrificing your upper lip to help abolish prostate cancer and men’s health issues. Clean shaven to stubble, to a full grown stache after thirty days, equals a celebration of the mo and your contribution of funds and awareness!

We have a great new product to honour Movember and your mustachey, hairy accomplishment that you will be nuts about!:)

Bicyclists rejoice…Introducing Bike Balls!

Bike Ball Bicycle Lights - Movember

Not only are they functional but they are a totally hilarious bike light!

These bike light balls are designed to look and dangle like the human scrotum. They will light up your commute and make it much safer by alerting drivers to your presence. Just give them a gentle squeeze to turn them on and a gentle squeeze like that to signal different light modes.

Marijuana will be legal on October 17, 2018 in Canada

October 10th, 2018

In one week, Canadians can can legally buy and consume marijuana not just on April 20th. On October 17th, buying and smoking cannabis in a legal sense is not the only reason to celebrate. It is coincides with the 50th birthday of Ziggy Marley, Bob Marley’s son.

Father’s Day Gifts

May 14th, 2018

Father’s Day 2018 falls on June 17th this year.

It is a time to honour dads, grandfathers, step-dads and all men who act as a father figures.

“According to Wikipedia, Father’s Day was first celebrated in the Spokane YMCA on June 19, 1910, by Sonora Smart Dodd. Her father was the civil war veteran William Jackson Smart, who was a single parent that raised his six children.”

Every year, you ponder what to get dear old Dad. Are you looking for something that is not the usual Father’s Day gift staples, like ties and socks? How about something fun and unique for Dad on his special day? We have some unique Father’s Day Gift ideas at Danna Bananas to celebrate Dad. Musical Dad, Tech Dad, Sports Dad, Funny Dad and Game Dad, whatever defines him, we have you covered with lots of Father’s Day suggestions. Go ahead, make dad’s day with a memorable gift!

Do you know someone who loves music? Well, a gift of music soothes one’s soul and never grows old.  We all know with the older <wink> generation, vinyls or have never really disappeared probably just stowed away in some milk crates or a closet so we don’t need to say bust out your record player.  The cost of a record seemed cheaper back when you were growing up in the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s but everything is relative, right?

Retro Father’s Day Gifts

Let’s set the scene for you: You’ve make a delicious dinner, you put on the new Leon Bridges’ record but you need the perfect placemat to make your dinner plans more groovy. We have the ideal accoutrement that will set a new spin to your table. Serve up your meals and place them on these retro Record Placements.

Record Place mats for Father's Day Gifts

These washable, dishwasher safe and heat-resistant silicone placemats look like the real deal as they come with a record sleeve in a set of two. Its’ just like buying a double album.

If you have a little one at home who wants to mimic you while you eat, Dinner DJ Dining Set will add a touch of volume to your meals. Introduce records and peanuts for that matter early as there will be less of a chance for allergies. Eating from a turntable rock-worthy, mealtime fun. Also, this beats regular dishes.

DJ Dubber! Rock around the clock, we mean meal as these are the perfect gifts for your analog-loving audiophile people in your life.

 

 

May The 4th Be With You

May 4th, 2018

“May the Fourth Be With You” or “May the 4th Be With You”, which ever way you spell it, Star Wars Day is on the 4th day of May. 

Hmm, I wonder:) when and how this day and pun began?

I have a hunch to celebrate all things Stars Wars and the saying that evolved from the first film in the 70’s, 1977 to be exact:

“May the Force Be With You!”

These six words have becme a universal language phenomenon.

Here is a cute YouTube video that collaborated different character clips saying these memorable words:

My favourite and first character saying this is good ol’ Yoda but these words were uttered throughout various Star Wars films.

One is such is Han Solo saying it to Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope and others.

I really like these words as they inspire and give you a sense of comfort. They are strong and encouraging words that are very positive. We all need vibes like this in life and not only in a galaxy far, far away .

This saying is similar to “Namaste”. You are acknowledging one’s presence and sending them good luck, light and love. The force in a sense is light too.

 

We have compiled some Star Wars themed gifts in a gift shop not in a far away cyber world:

 

If you are an an inspiring baker, you will like Wookiee Pies, Clone Scones and other Galactic Goodies

“May the Fudge be with You” while baking 30 Star Wars-themed sweet treats from “Jar Jar Fig Bars” to “C-3POatmeal Crisps” and many more.
