New years Eve, Dec. 31 - More unique holiday gift ideas: party favors are always good to handout, also small goody bags. News Years Day Jan. 1  is more of a time for dinners and formal occasions. Commemorative tie pins or for the ladies a festive unique brooches.

A time to reflect on last year with friends and to prepare for the year. For me New Years day quiets me down from the excitement of the holiday season. 

I look outside at the cold icy scenery and relax with a hot chocolate. For New Years a holiday unique gift idea is timeless and Sentimental.   

Jan 21 - Martin Luther King Day is a time for unity and human rights. There are community events happening particularly where I live in Washington Heights in New York City.  

There are sites to learn about  Dr Martin Luther King and the Civil Rights movement. There are live account of MLK's speech “I have a Dream” and about the civil rights movement on DVD. MLK days memorial gifts could be exemplified today that we are everyday more united as one human family.

In the spirit of this MKL Day and to commemorate his service to others for a better world  you can help others who are less fortunate. You can donate to institutions to promote higher education, charities to fight poverty, and help provide clean drinking water to developing nationsMore on Memorial Gifts to Remember for Dr Martin Luther King Jr Day.

Chinese New Year:(for cultural unique holiday gift ideas) - Dates fall differently according to what year in the Chinese calendar. Red & Gold (Red represents luck, and Gold represents prosperity.) are the colors that dominate the celebration. 

It's not just a cultural experience but a celebration. So celebrating with your Asian friends by wishing them Happy new year are appropriate. Gift giving however is steeped in tradition and sticks to proper ways to presenting gifts. Alternatively however I found some fun Chinese New Year gift ideas!.



When I was in elementary school we went to China Town and we would celebrate the Chinese New Year by stopping by at the playhouse in china town for the wonderful dance festivals.

On our way to the show we would look at the sights, sound and smells of food. Firecrackers will be littered all over the the place. 

Big red lanterns with lights will be stringed throughout the street as we walk through the dense crowd that were celebrating. 

At the end of our trip or teacher would  give out red & gold fortune envelopes with gold chocolate coins inside. Then we would order a big feast of Chinese foods: Noodles, Rice, Lobster sauces and other exotic Chinese foods.
