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:

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.

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!

“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.

Spring Toys

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

Spring is a time to get outside and enjoy the warm temperatures. That being said, it is April 19th and there is still snow on the ground. On the weekend, there was a treacherous spring-time storm with an awesome mix of snow, ice and rain. It was a big skating rink for a few days. The good news is this snow can’t stay forever and eventually there will be shades of spring. In fact, a bird just flew by… so stay tuned!

Spring Toys to Get the Kids Outside

Getting the kids off the tablet and playing outside is the healthy thing to do not only for the body but the mind too. For some, this is a real challenge but for others, it’s an easy task if you provide fun spring toys, activities and adventures. Making sure boredom doesn’t ooze in is a job itself but the Mini OgoDisk sure will bust that and create long-lasting play for the young and young at heart. It is essentially a mini trampoline or flying disc that fits in your hands that catches and throws balls up to 150 feet. It comes with a rubber koosh ball and the goal is to bounce the ball back and forth between the disks. You can use it for tennis, volleyball and baseball as well. Not only is this great for spring “when it arrives” but for a hot summer day too by tossing around a water balloon. The Mini OgoDisk will make a great gift for all ages, toddler to adult creating endless active, varieties of play.

National Unicorn Day!

Monday, April 9th, 2018

Happy National Unicorn Day! That’s right, you read right. Did you know there is such a day to commemorate this magical white horse like creature? In this day in age,  where there is a day to celebrate anything and everything from Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day to Make Your Dreams Come True Day we are not surprised. My favorite is Festival of Sleep Day which is ideal as it falls after New Years Eve on January 3rd. Did you also know the unicorn is the national animal of Scotland? Yup, you read right again. Yea, two for two! As everyone needs a little bit of magic and amusement in this thing called life,  today is all about celebrating unicorns. For some, unicorns do exist but some naysayers feel unicorns “supposedly” only captivate our imagination and live in a far-away make-believe land with rainbows and sparkles.

If you are a non believer,  close your eyes and imagine just for a minute,  these beasts are real and the mysterious but none the less enchanting unicorn will benefit all for just being in an imaginary existence. A unicorn is kind of like an introvert, silent but very caring and intuitive. As everyone has to entertain their inner unicorn, Danna Bananas has some unicorn inspired gifts for you to check out.

Unicorn Colour Changing Light for National Unicorn Day

This night light features real life characteristics similar to a unicorn. The Unicorn Colour Changing Light has a spiraling, large, pointed horn projecting from it’s forehead and for a bonus of cuteness, rainbow colored hair. It will not only light up your room but your life too with a rainbow of LED multi-coloured fun lights.

Remember tomorrow is Siblings Day.
