Tips From Lifestyle Expert Lynn Becker

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Dec 2, 2014) - Looking for fabulous, affordable holiday gifts for your family and friends? Lifestyle expert Lynn Becker has great recommendations:

  • CVS/pharmacy offers quality, affordable photo products, which can be ordered online, on the CVS Mobile smartphone app or at CVS photo centers. It's a seamless way to bring photos to life in personalized photo blankets, greeting cards and prints. Shoppers can order prints in minutes from their camera, mobile phone or Facebook and Instagram.

  • The Clarity BT914 telephone amplifies incoming sounds up to 40 decibels, to provide clear conversations for people with hearing loss. And you don't have to have landline service to use. It features a Bluetooth technology that allows users to make calls through landline or wireless service. They can use their cellphone on the go, and the BT914 at home, all through their wireless service. 101phones.com/clarity
  • Pistachios are healthy, delicious, and full of protein, fiber and unsaturated fat. They also have fewer calories than other nuts. Guys will love receiving them filled in Speigelau classic beer glasses, or a Moscow Mule Copper Mug. Or why not fill a Baseball Cap with a bag of pistachios? Look for the American Pistachio Growers logo. americanpistachios.org
  • Just Dance 2015 is the perfect game to get the whole family up and moving! With more than 40 hot hits from artists including Ariana Grande and One Direction, and even throwback tunes, there's something for everyone. It's like exercise in disguise. It's available on all motion control gaming consoles, including Xbox, PlayStation and Wii systems. just-dance.ubi.com
  • Bounce-Off, from Mattel Games, is fun and easy for everyone, ages 8 to 88, but don't be fooled. The competition is fierce! Flip over a card to determine the pattern, then race to form it by bouncing balls into the grid. The first color to complete the pattern wins the game. You'll find Bounce-Off at Walmart for $17.99. mattelgames.com.
  • The Rise and Fall of a Jewish American Princess, by Barbara Rose Brooker, is a new novel about Dianne Roseman -- a creative woman who struggles with a brutal rejection, divorce and single parenting over a 20-year-period. Against all obstacles, Dianne becomes a successful artist. amazon.com.
