Roses are Red

Violets are Blue

Look what we’ve got for you…unforgettable Gifts For Your Valentine!

 

 

Whether you are celebrating Valentine’s or Galentine’s Day, February 14th is creeping up and it will be time for Valentines.

 

Let’s be frank, you either love it or you hate it. While some would say that Valentine’s Day is a day for sharing with your significant other gifting boxes of the usual box of chocolates…it doesn’t have to be the same way of celebrating every year! It’s 2019, why not switch up your routine?  If you want to spend Valentine’s Day eating chocolate(that’s fine), having a night full of relaxation with a hot cup of Cocoa or Tea,  playing a Board Game or watching your favourite Romantic Comedy – that’s lovely! If shopping for Valentine’s Day is a little overwhelming, Danna Bananas has compiled a list of Valentine’s Day Must Haves that can be enjoyed solo, or with your significant other in crime. Scroll down and see what cupid has approved this Valentine’s Day…all we can say is some fun Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas will catch your eye!

1. What is the first word that comes to mind when you say Valentine’s Day? Did you say chocolate? If yes, that’s what we’re dreaming of— a hot cup of cocoa and lots of it served in none other, a Gnome Mug. What’s better than spending the night in, bundled up in in your home sweet warm home sipping away? The answer is nothing, nothing is better! Our product of choice for Valentine’s Day is:

Humble Gnome Mug

2. Your tea lover will lust for this heart-shaped tea infuser as a hot cup of tea infused with love is soothing to the heart. the Tea To My Heart Tea Infuser will steep your love affair even more:

3. If  you feel it’s too cold to venture out to seek entertainment, how about a fun board game that will not only raise your temperature but beat your cabin fever too? Adult XXX Charades is similar to charades but with a twist<wink>…a titillating party game full of suggestive innuendos to keep your party entertained. Remember to play at your own risk!

4. Practice safe drinking with the Wine Condom. Here is a solution for saving your wine as you need to protect your Pinot Grigio and sheath your Chardonnay.

PS. Love Is In The Air(always) so gifting all year long and not just on Valentine’s Day would be a heart felt gesture.

Be Our Valentine

Monday, January 28th, 2019

Is sending a Valentine’s Day card to the special people in our lives passé? The same question goes for Christmas cards? If you send out Christmas cards,  I then believe the answer is no. Once or twice a year, pay it forward, support your postal service and buy that stamp. Snail mail still needs to be utilized as it can’t disappear as many people rely on it. We all sent out Valentines when we were young. Why can’t we do so as adults? Have a little heart-to-heart and write your main squeeze a sweet (or spicy) Valentine’s Day love letter. Everybody deserves a surprise in their mailbox that isn’t a bill.

Give the unexpected…a paper card.

Express your love and wish some Happy Valentine’s Day or Galentine’s Day! Send directly using the old fashioned method,  snail mail  these lovely vintage Valentines Day greetings.

Valentine’s Day cards are the perfect way to express your love, the most beautiful feeling in the world!

If you’re looking for something more than just a card check out our Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas at Danna Bananas.

He’s checking it twice,
He’s gonna find out who’s naughty or nice
Santa Claus is coming to town…”

May The 4th Be With You

Friday, 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.

Day of the Dead

Monday, October 23rd, 2017

Every year, Day of the Dead is celebrated around the world on November 1st and 2nd but the holiday itself originated from the Mexican culture with many rituals and traditions marking this day and commemorating the dead is a true celebration of life.

The belief is to remember and honour your deceased loved ones.

“The gates of heaven are opened at midnight on October 31 and the spirits of all deceased children (angelitos) are allowed to reunite with their families for 24 hours. On November 2, the spirits of the adults come down to enjoy the festivities that are prepared for them.”

On this day, there is a big fiesta with lots of food, drinks and feting.

Candles, flowers skulls and photos of loved ones decorate altars. Drinks are mixed as quenching the thirst of the dead after their spirits return is practiced. Favourite meals and sweets of the deceased are placed on the altar as well.

 For the sweet offering, why not bake up a batch of skulled themed cookies.  The Sweet Spirits Cookie Cutters are great for your Day of the Dead celebrations.
This cookie cutter set comes in 4 spirited colours: blue, green, orange and purple.
