SHOWTIME:  Sure, you could always go with iTunes gift cards for your music-loving pals (again), but a House of Blues card could pay dividends in the long run.  Imagine their delight upon receiving a blank check to spend at one of the hottest venues in town…and when the inevitable question arises (“Who wants to go to a show tonight?”) you’ll be the first plus-one to come to mind.  Pretty sly, huh?  Check out for schedule, dining and Company Store info, then call 214-978-4845 for the gift that keeps on giving.

DESIGNATED DRIVER:  Speaking of nights on the town, the TaxiCard is one of the best ideas we’ve seen in a long time.  Great for students, roommates, seniors and just about anyone who needs a safe, reliable ride from time to time, the rechargeable cards are accepted by Yellow Cab here in the Metroplex.  Visit or call 1-866-499-TAXI.

ARTISTIC ENDEAVOR:  Renée Vandevere’s Paint Like Picasso classes require no special skills or equipment.  Her studio is stocked with canvases, paints, brushes – everything a budding artist needs to create his or her own masterpiece.  Students need only bring an open mind (and paint-friendly clothes) and Vandevere will guide them through the process step-by-step.  Choose this unique experience for someone very special; it’s sure to be a gift they’ll never forget.  Visit for details.
