A few of TC's "Favorite Things" as we head into the holidays!

Hi Holiday Pals!
I’m getting ready for the big day!  I’m creating a two-part list of some of my favorites for holiday shopping to share with you guys and gals.
I wanted to incorporate a few elements into my picks. Most important- I need to LOVE these ideas and use them. Every pick is one that I enjoy and recommend. I love uniqueness, quality, and good customer service. Next, local in house businesses, local online businesses, and folks that are also trying to make a difference in the world with their businesses (I love that!) that you may not know about. Many new entrepreneurs embark on “business givebacks” to local charities which always turns my head and grabs my heart. Truly what the season is about. I also try and find brands that you will use again and again simply because the experience is a good one.

Cool clothing, lifestyle merchandise food, drink, jewelry, pet-related, experiences, and more- I’ve included something for everyone on my 2 lists. And of course, those who know me know I love everything that ROCKS! So there are quite a few rock-related items on my list.


Shopping for me is hard. I enjoy a “personal” touch to gift giving (I’m not one for throwing stuff at anyone) and I like to try and figure out what each person is going to think is fantastic!
There is still time to get your shopping done- (I’m always a late shopper!) as we head into the final week before the big day.

Most of all, remember the season is about enjoyment. With family, friends, and recharge for yourself, please take a minute to “breathe in….breathe out”…..(quoting the super hot Gavin Rossdale and BUSH!) and have some fun.
Also, you can always send me some of your favorite gift-giving ideas as well and I’d be happy to check them out!

Here’s part 1!

  • Heavy Metal Zen

    Just a “few” of the shirts and pants from my Heavy Metal Zen collection

    I’m frequently asked “where did you get that shirt”? “Where did you get that candle”? “Where did you get those pants”?

    On many occasions I have the same answer- HEAVY METAL ZEN!
    Be a rebel in style with some of the finest made , rock clothing, jewelry, accessories, candles, bath products and more, founded by former music professional and Jersey Girl, Gail Miller, Heavy Metal Zen is one of my favorite brands for men and women, and I’m OBSESSED with everything they sell! Unique, Rocking, and Incredible- with not only great design but quality and customer service- you’ll be addicted too.

  • Project Pawsome- Saving Shelter Pets One Bowtie At A Time- Sir Darius Brown- Book

    I’ve know local New Jersey Gentleman Sir Darius Brown since he was a young boy, making Bow Ties to help get shelter pets noticed. Now he’s an author! This is a must “give” for the dog lover on your list, and I especially love it because my dog Rosie and my late baby girl Star appear in the book, telling their shelter story about being adopted by me, from The Denville Animal Shelter.  The photos , stories and generous spirit of this book make it such a perfect gift for the holidays.

  • WDHA Rock The Rock Fest Tickets. & Experiences

    Rock the Rock Fest 2024 Lineup

    Come On! Join us for the party! WDHA’s Rock The Rock Fest is becoming something of a listener “Family Reunion” every year and we try and raise the bar and incorporate a bit more as the show grows!

    I have always loved giving tickets to concerts, plays or events because it not only gives you something exciting to give on Christmas morning, but you can look forward to the event AND celebrate it once it comes.

    This year RTRF has 5 bands on stage (Staind, Seether, The Struts, Ayron Jones and Dayseeker) AND three bands playing our VIP Pre- Show Party with acoustic sets (Ayron Jones, Plush and Tim Montana) and presently we are offering that $99 upgrade to VIP for ticket holders , which is a really fun gift idea!

    Hope to see you and the family on 4/25 at The Prudential Center!
