Sunday, February 24th, 2019

The winner for best movie gadget is…

Shopping for a gadget obsessed gift recipient who is a lover of movies and Netflix?

Tech gifts are some of the most popular and sought-after gifts out there.

With the weather at times very frightful, you may not want to venture out to the movie-plex rather just stay in and experience an old-fashioned movie night?

Pop your popcorn, bring out the drinks and gather around, we have a entertaining gadget for you.

Whether you’re streaming The Umbrella Academy, a Youtube video or some quirky viewing pleasure, this Smartphone Projector 2.0 will make them larger than life by transforming your home into a cinema experience.

It doesn’t need any batteries — voila…just a fully charged Smart Phone propped into the portable projector.

In 1933, excited citizens of Camden, NJ drove up and parked their cars at the very first drive-in theater. Drive-ins became a thing after World War II and became very popular in the 50’s and 60’s. Turn the calendar to today, who would have thought you can recreate your very own projector movie night with an smart phone.

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!

Chinese New Year

Monday, February 4th, 2019
Happy New Year: Xīn nián kuài lè!
The Lunar New Year falls on February 5, 2019.

2019 is the Year of the Pig according to the Chinese zodiac calendar.

It is a beautiful, peace loving, social and very lucky animal that is great for money and wealth.

If you were born in the years 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007 and of course this year, you will be celebrating with an extra sip of wine<oink, oink>.

As stated on the Chinese New Year website:

The Pig is the twelfth of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. Pig was late because he overslept. Another story says that a wolf destroyed his house. He had to rebuild his home before he could set off. When he arrived, he was the last one and could only take twelfth place.

The Pig is also associated with the Earthly Branch (地支—dì zhī) hài (亥), and the hours 9–11 in the night. In terms of yin and yang (阴阳—yīn yáng), the Pig is yin. In Chinese culture, pigs are the symbol of wealth.

Their chubby faces and big ears are signs of fortune as well.”

Besides ringing in the new year with a swine and cheese party, how about an entertaining dinner guest that’s not a boar…“sow what?”, you ask?
A pig?
The Stinking Pig Game will also beat the winter blues and cure cabin fever as it will get everybody oinking with great laughter.

Poke his belly to hear him sing and then you can pass him around by rolling the die, but if he toots in your hand then you will get a token and the person with fewest tokens by the end of the game will win.

Hope your Lunar New Year is full of great fun, love, health and laughter for the whole family!

Hogs and kisses!

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.

November is Movember

Tuesday, 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.

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.
