This is amazing for the music fan that has kids... Actually its the perfect gift because there's some awesome hidden meanings in the artwork that parents who are fans of these bands will get while on the surface the kids will just enjoy for what the bands are doing in the illustrations. I LOVE stuff like that! I mean its the basic recipe for why Pixar movies work so well!
I will say, that when I first saw this product I wondered how they got all the bands to agree to be a part of this... And then I saw this on their website, "Any reference contained in this book to musical artists or their works does not constitute or imply the endorsement, recommendation or approval of those artists."
So I'm not sure they have all the permissions that they need... Or maybe they found some loophole... I'm not sure. Either way if this is your thing I'd order fast!

This past September, I tagged along with Anthony, host of The Morning Show, up to Hartford for Farm Aid 18.
It was a very intensive presentation followed by a full day concert with Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews, and more. One thing Neil said was" stop by the farm stand every time. Get to know where your food comes from, and who is growing your food. Get to know your neighbors". So many people I know are trying to be healthier, eat cleaner, and with those New Year's resolutions just around the corner, my gift list suggestion is Sang Lee Farms over in Peconic. Great, local and organic gift for the foodie health nut on your list. They also deliver!
Parents of little kids, like myself, besides willing to trade entire bank accounts for 20 minutes of peace and quiet... Basically would really love it if the kids would just sit down and eat! In this increasingly technological world it seems like we're quick to throw the iPad or cell phone in front of them or throw on their favorite cartoon at dinner time just to keep them in one spot.
Well this might be a fun change of pace! Get those kids to dig their own dinner set up with this DJ Dinner Set! On top of the record plate and movable knobs and sliders it has a spork... I mean, do we have to say anymore? The damn think comes with a spork!!!! #SporkForThe2018Win

Vinyl lovers or audiophiles can be quite difficult to buy gifts for. Usually their annoying perfectionists that look down on everything everyone else does... I would know, I am one!
But considering that most gifts for the average audiophile can be crazy expensive or even if you wanted to buy someone an album, you may not know if they have it already. Or if you do buy it, but it turns out to be the rerelease and not the original mono recording, you could be in for an earful (don't pardon the pun, enjoy the pun...)
Make things simple and easy for you and given that vinyl loving perfectionist something they can't complain about... This gift says hey, I thought of you, I care about what you're interested in but I don't want to spend a ton of money on you... And any warm blooded animal should be satisfied with that.
I think these are great Hampton's gifts for the holidays. Keep summer in sight! They might even get you invited out to the beach house for another weekend.

This is one of those weird things that you have to see for yourself. If I described a Big Lebowski shirt in the Nintendo style, you'd have no idea what I was talking about.

There are ways, you don't want to know... But if you want this shirt then just click here...

I'm loving these beautiful, hand blown, glass ornaments featuring the Firedancer Logo and Eat, Drink, & Be Merry lyric script. It's available in red, green, blue, or iridescent. Each ornament is individually packaged in a protective gift box which makes life easy if you're sending it direct to another DMB fan...
I also think that this ornament works well for the non-dmb fan as its just a killer quote from the bible.
