Peggy’s Top Five Tips For Stress-Free Gift Giving BY PEGGY POST

ou should feel good about the gifts you give. Keeping in mind that it truly is the thought behind the gift and spirit of generosity with which it is given that matter most, here are five tips for giving gifts without succumbing to stress. Get Their Wish List

Ask people for hints or even a wish list. Gather ideas during the year, and write everything down.

Trust Your Judgment Forget about being afraid the gift isn’t “perfect.” If you think the person will like it, chances are they will.

Stick To Your Budget Spending more than you should takes the fun out of gift giving. There’s nothing more stressful than overspending—and feeling uneasy about it.

Buy It When You See It If you’re shopping in July and see a sweater that your mother would love, buy it. It probably won’t be there when you look in December.

Start A Gift Closet Stash a few gifts that will work in a pinch: copies of your favorite cookbook, a good bottle of wine or boxes of beautiful note cards. That way you’ll be ready if you need a gift on the spot. —Peggy Post writes for the Emily Post Institute

Don’t Let The Last-Minute Holiday Rush Crush Your Budget BY NATHANIEL SILLIN

or all the planning we do during the holidays, the last couple of weeks before the big parties and family gatherings can trip up the best of budgets. Perhaps what’s needed is some last-minute tricks to keep overspending to a minimum. Here are a few ideas to get you through. Track your spending If you’re close to the upper end of your budget and you’re not quite sure what’s happened, go through those receipts. Maybe you and your partner or spouse are shopping independently, spending too much on gas, meals out or failing to coordinate on the items you need. Maybe the kids are adding items to their lists at the last minute. It’s toughest to say no to kids, so see if there are adult gifts, decorating items or seasonal specialty food you really don’t need to purchase. In

other words, if your budget is tight, identify the expenses you can alter and adjust your spending plans.

Don’t ignore the cost of returns Some retailers are strict about return policies on a host of items, which makes it doubly important to save all your receipts. If you’re giving gift cards, make sure the recipient has the purchase receipt in case the card doesn’t work. If you’ve bought items online, make

sure you keep critical return information and package return stickers in case you need them. However, take one additional step with shipped returns—see whether the seller is charging you more for their convenient shipping label option than shipping the item back locally in your own packaging. Finally, keep restocking fees in mind—some retailers charge in excess of 10 percent of the item’s cost to accept a return, particularly for electronic and mechanical purchases that involve heavy packaging. Ultimately, the best time to check return policies is before you buy, but if you do have to return items, consolidate those trips to save time, gas and money.

If you have a large gift list for loved ones or family, be a nosy shopper. Maybe your sister is finally giving her movie freak husband the room-sized flatscreen he’s always wanted. Maybe your nieces and nephews are getting expensive dolls, toys or technology items that require clothes or software of some sort. If you are trying to cut your holiday budget, check in with loved ones to see if you can supplement these expensive gifts with accessories that might be easier on your

budget and appreciated just as much. Pitching in for a couple of outfits for the expensive doll—rather than having to buy the expensive doll itself—saves you money, gives your loved ones a break on the subsequent purchases they’ll need to make and the recipient gets more of what he or she wants. A win-win all around.

Watch out for theft All the smart shopping in the world won’t lessen the headaches from thieves who target your packages, personal and online data or the contents of your wallet. Fastapproaching holidays and busy schedules can leave us tired and distracted, so keep a close watch on potential risk for identity theft, (www.identitytheft.gov) package theft from cars, homes and apartment vestibules. If you take public transportation, use extra caution to keep your money, purchases and personal technology hidden from thieves. Bottom line: Don’t let the last, busy weeks of the holiday season knock you off budget or threaten your financial security in other ways.

Holiday Mailing Tips BY CHRISTY HINKO

E

chinko@antonmediagroup.com

very year, holiday shipping should be getting easier with upgrades in technology, convenient shipping options and packing solutions. However, getting your items to their destination ahead of the holiday takes a little extra planning and adhering to some reasonable shipping deadlines for many of the letter and parcel carriers. Delivery in time for the holidays depends, not only on getting your packages and Christmas cards to the shipping agent on time, but on the outer labeling and condition of the packed box.

Come See The New Fashions for Winter 2016-2017

10C | LAST MINUTE HOLIDAY GUIDE 2016

Here are a few tips to packaging and sending a box or letter safely: • Choose a box with enough room for cushioning material around the contents inside. Many boxes are rated for weight limits also. Choose a box that can handle the weight of the contents during transit. • Place cushioning around your items. Close and gently shake the box to see whether there is enough padding. Add more newspaper, packing foam, or plastic cushioning material if you hear things moving around. • Whenever possible, use a new box. If you are reusing a box for shipping, make sure that old labels and markings are completely blackened out or removed. • Tape your box shut and reinforce the seams with 2-inch wide tape. Use clear or brown packaging tape, reinforced packing tape or paper tape. Do not use cord, string or twine because it gets caught in mail processing equipment. • If you are shipping a package with any of its lengths longer than 100 inches or exceeding 70 pounds, check with the intended carrier for specific instructions and packing directions. • Using a complete and correct address is critical for efficient delivery. When shipping via United States Postal Service (USPS), always use the five digit zip code, plus four digit routing, when possible. For example 11040-5409. • Many of the local carriers provide appropriate shipping boxes free of charge. Check the individual websites for ordering instructions for additional empty boxes suitable for packing and mailing. Here are the suggested mailing dates for three of the major services. Mail early and mail often. These are approximations; actual delivery dates should be confirmed with your selected carrier.

Dates to keep in mind for USPS MAILINGS: Dec. 15—USPS Retail Ground Dec. 15—Last day for most international express service shipping for Christmas arrival Dec. 16—Last day to ship express service to most military for Christmas arrival Dec. 20—Last day to send First-Class Mail for Christmas arrival Dec. 21—Last day to send Priority Mail for Christmas arrival Dec. 23—Last day to send Priority Mail Express for Christmas arrival Mail will be delivered as usual on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24.

dgilderubio@antonmediagroup.com

he beauty of film and television is the medium’s ability to sweep us away on a magic carpet ride of imagination, wonder and memory. There’s plenty here to guide the gift recipient regardless of their movie preference. It’s a Wonderful Life, 70th Anniversary Platinum Edition (Paramount) Seven decades after it was released, this 1946 Frank Capra classic remains a perennial favorite around Christmas time, thanks to the warm and humble performance the late James Stewart gave to the film’s lead character George Bailey. For this special reissue, Paramount has included collectible, limited edition art cards featuring images of original ads and lobby cards.

Labyrinth 30th Anniversary Collector’s Edition (Sony Pictures Home Entertainment)

David Bowie’s death in January kicked off 2016 on a sour note, what better way to remember him than by diving into this 30th anniversary reissue of the Thin White Duke’s collaboration with Jim Henson? Bowie plays the shock-haired Goblin King. This version contains featurettes (Inside the Labyrinth making-of, Journey Through the Labyrinth: King of Characters documentary), commentary by conceptual designer Brian Froud and the theatrical trailer.

Sony Pictures Animation Collection Lunchbox Gift Set (Sony Pictures) Animation fans of all ages will not only get a kick out of the tin lunchbox packaging that holds these 10 animated movies, but the full-length cartoon features themselves. In it you’ll find Arthur Christmas, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 1 & 2, Hotel Transylvania 1 & 2, Open Season, The Pirates! Band of Misfits, The Smurfs 1 & 2 and Surf’s Up.

The Marx Brothers Silver Screen Collection (Universal Studios Home Entertainment)

The kings of slapstick and surrealism are given their due here via the five full-length films they shot for Paramount Pictures. You get four of the five Marx Brothers (Groucho, Harpo, Chico and Zeppo) in The Cocoanuts, Animal Crackers, Monkey Business, Horse Feathers and Duck Soup. Also included in this three-DVD set are film historian feature commentaries (including Harpo’s son Bill Marx) and Today Show interviews with Groucho, Harpo and Bill Marx.

2016 World Series Champions: The Chicago Cubs (Shout Factory)

This encapsulation of a World Series win that broke a century-plus curse features narration from actor and super Cubs fan Vince Vaughan.

The Hunger Games 4-Film Collection (Lionsgate Home Entertaiment)

Dr. Strange (Shout Factory)

While the current version of Dr. Strange, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, will rightfully blow your mind between the acting and superb CGI, this 1978 television movie was made during a far simpler time. It was the one live action series that Stan Lee had the most input on and while the lead was played by 1970s character actor Peter Hooten, it’s a pre-Arrested Development/Archer Jessica Walter who you’ll want to check out playing villainess Morgan Le Fay.

Game of Thrones, Seasons 1-6 (HBO Home Entertainment)

The Bourne Ultimate Collection (Universal Pictures Home Entertainment)

With the wait between seasons being so long for this fantasy series based on the world of novelist George R.R. Martin, what better way to catch up and binge watch? Starting with the 2011 debut episode, this set rolls through 27 discs that includes 20 hours of deleted scenes, documentary features on the making of the Battle of the Bastards and Vaes Dothrak, 13 commentaries and 18 History and Lore videos.

Robert Ludlum’s deadly trained assassin is front and center here as Matt Damon stars in four of these five films as an amnesia-riddled killing machine (Jeremy Renner stepped in as the lead character in 2012’s The Bourne Legacy). The remaining movies in this six-DVD set are The Bourne Identity (2002), The Bourne Supremacy (2004), The Bourne Ultimatum (2007) and Jason Bourne (2016). Loads of extra behind-thescenes goodies are also included.

Port Washington

The gold standard for teen dystopian films also gave Jennifer Lawrence worldwide fame. This 8-DVD set includes all four films: The Hunger Games, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay-Part 1 and Part 2. This set brings together the whole series and 14 hours of bonus content. Among the all-new bonus extras are 12 deleted scenes from the original movie and two making-of features, Picturing Panem and Capitol Cuisine.

FESTIVE FEAST

Enjoy A

Taste

of Hanukkah By Nicole Lockwood

H

nlockwood@antonmediagroup.com

anukkah, the eight-day festival of light that celebrates the triumph of good over evil, is one of the most sacred holidays of the Jewish faith. While it is a time to reflect upon life, love, family and friendships, doing so over a plate of latkes will undoubtedly make it better. Whether Jewish, Christian, Hindu, Muslim or whatever religion one chooses to practice, anyone can enjoy a good helping of potato pancakes. Luckily, this festival feast staple has few ingredients, follows simple instructions, is relatively quick to cook and conducive to being prepared in a variety of styles. To start, here’s a traditional latke recipe in its simplest form. If followed accordingly, these instructions should yield 12 to 16 latkes.

BASIC RECIPE Yields: 12-16 latkes

• • • • • •

1 lb potatoes peeled ¼ cup finely chopped shallots 1 large egg, lightly beaten ½ cup panko breadcrumbs 1½ tsp salt and freshly ground black pepper Vegetable oil for frying (or coconut oil as a healthier alternative)

Grate the potatoes either by hand or by placing them in a food processor, and add to a large bowl of cold water. Let the shavings soak for one to two minutes, then drain well. Spread the potatoes and finely chopped shallots on a cheesecloth or towel and gently squeeze to get rid of excess moisture. Next, add the potatoes and shallots to a bowl and stir in the egg, salt and pepper. Coat the bottom of a large stovetop pan with either vegetable oil or coconut oil and put it over a medium flame. Take the potato mixture and form round pancake-like shapes consisting of about two tablespoons worth. Working in batches of four latkes at a time, cook each for about five minutes until the undersides begin to brown, then flip. Transfer the finished latkes to a towel to absorb excess oil and season with more salt and pepper. Repeat the steps for each batch, adding more oil to the pan as necessary. Though they are delicious as is, with a few extra add-ons, transform regular latkes into the talk of the dinner table. SPICY

CHEESY

When in doubt, just add cheese. And while you’re at it, why not add three different kinds? From cheddar, to Swiss, to pepper jack and everything in between, there’s no limit to what can be made of the cheesy delicacy. One option is a cheddar, parmesan and mozzarella blend. Add a little or add a lot for the optimal amount of melty greatness. For a side dip, make use of your favorite tomato soup. SWEET

Easily swap the regular potatoes for sweet potatoes and you have a new dish entirely. Not only are the sweet potatoes tasty, but it is also a healthier carb alternative, proven to be an excellent source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, manganese and other essential nutrients. To the finished product, add a bit of powdered sugar and some honey mustard dipping sauce or applesauce on the side. HEALTHY

Add a healthy dose of vegetables to your latkes. Ingredients may vary depending on personal preferences, but opt for leafy greens, like spinach and kale, and root vegetables that can be easily grated, such as beets, parsnips, carrots, radishes and kohlrabi. Finely cut your vegetables of choice or put them in a food processor. To rid of excess moisture, place them in a cheesecloth and squeeze. Then add the vegetable mixture to the original latke recipe above, with one added egg. The final product can be best paired with sour cream or greek yogurt.

160603M

Fire up Hanukkah this year with spicy cajun latkes. Add

a dash of cayenne and grated raw jalapenos. Include as little or as much as you’d like depending on what your taste buds can handle, and add a teaspoon of lemon juice to neutralize the spiciness. Top it off with chipotle mayo dipping sauce.

the way to ensure that the ingredients aren’t contaminated by allergens. “We know from experience that these assurances are extremely important to our consumer, but are often difficult to find in products such as ours,” the specialty dessert manufacturer explained. “What makes our cookies incredibly unique and appealing is that they are all natural, and we use no strange

or unusual ingredients to compensate for the lack of gluten, dairy or eggs,” noted Mazur-Grosskopf. “Our cookies contain no refined white flours or white sugars, and no potato, corn or rice. The best part is that they are moist, chewy and scrumptious—and most people we’ve encountered who have a gluten-free or allergy-free diet say that finding a cookie that is as chewy, delicious

and melt-in-your-mouth as ours is virtually impossible.” Visit www.willowswonderscookies .com to find out which retailers carry the chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin goodies, or order them directly by clicking the Shop button in the upper right corner of the menu bar.

Also from James Patterson, Word of Mouse, cowritten with Chris Grabenstein, illustrates a middle grade story follows the illuminating journey of a very special mouse, and the unexpected friendships that he makes along the way. What makes Isaiah so unique? First, his fur is as blue as the sky—which until recently was something he’d never seen, but had read all about. That’s right—Isaiah can read, and write. He can also talk to humans...if any of them are willing to listen! After a dramatic escape from a mysterious laboratory, Isaiah is separated from his “mischief” (which is the word for a mouse family), and has to use his special skills to survive in the dangerous outdoors, and hopefully find his missing family. But in a world of cruel cats, hungry owls, and terrified people, it’s hard for a young, lone mouse to make it alone. When he meets an equally unusual and lonely human girl named Hailey, the two soon learn that true friendship can transcend all barriers. Word of Mouse is available in hardcover ($13.99) and audiobook ($22).

This deliciously creepy young adult horror novel, Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco ($18.99), has a storyline inspired by the Ripper murders and an unexpected, blood-chilling conclusion. Seventeenyear-old Audrey Rose Wadsworth was born a lord’s daughter, with a life of wealth and privilege stretched out before her. But between the social teas and silk dress fittings, she leads a forbidden secret life. Against her stern father’s wishes and society’s expectations, Audrey often slips away to her uncle’s laboratory to study the gruesome practice of forensic medicine. When her work on a string of savagely killed corpses drags Audrey into the investigation of a serial murderer, her search for answers brings her close to her own sheltered world. The story’s shocking twists and turns, augmented with real, sinister period photos, will make this dazzling debut from Maniscalco impossible to forget.  —Compiled by Christy Hinko
