Every holiday season, we hear it again and again…The holiday season and the rush make it impossible to shop for everyone.
Your spouse doesn’t know what they want, your kids have everything already, and yet, they keep dropping hints and making their wish list. With the holidays quickly approaching, many people are scrambling to track down the perfect gift for everyone in their lives.
This year, there’s help.
Digital Journalist and Trend Expert, Mike Bako, teamed with YourUpdateTV on a nationwide media tour to discuss great holiday gifting options for this year.

Gifts That Help You Out in Your Career:
Giving a gift that can help someone with their career is the gift that keeps on giving.
Everyone is looking for ways to raise their own level of performance in the workplace and we all know that’s difficult terrain to navigate…which is why “Business Chemistry: Practical Magic for Crafting Powerful Work Relationships” is the perfect stocking stuffer this season.
This book discusses how to “click when you clash” by providing examples of how to create better chemistry with those around you – techniques to help you better communicate with others-and ways you can harness the power of diverse perspective.
This book also teaches the reader about themselves so it’s a valuable tool for understanding your own work style as well as the work styles of others. It’s a great gift idea for anyone looking to build a better understanding of their colleagues, themselves, or even a college student or someone new to the workforce.
At $15 per copy, this is the type of book you can get for a loved one and an extra copy for yourself.
Family Time Entertainment at the Holidays:
It is always important to make family time a priority during the holidays. With all the craziness this time of year, sitting down to watch a movie together is something everyone in your family can look forward to.
This year the holiday go to movie is Mission: Impossible—Fallout, which was not only a worldwide blockbuster, but also one of the best reviewed movies of the year with a 97% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
The entire family will enjoy watching this action-packed hit at home on their high-def television. It’s wildly entertaining and, of course, loaded with jaw dropping stunts, which Tom Cruise famously does himself.
The Blu-ray Combo Pack includes over an hour of bonus footage that takes you behind-the-scenes of the stunts, the exotic locations and more. Plus, it comes with a DVD and a Digital copy for on-the-go viewing.
For around $20, Mission: Impossible—Fallout makes an ideal stocking stuffer for anyone who loves great movies.
