Gift guide

Gift guide for Ted Lasso fans (10 gifts under $25)

‘Tis the season. But it doesn’t have to be. This is a gift guide for any season, really. If you have a Ted Lasso fan in your life, here are a few things you could gift them (all under $25). Some of those links (the Amazon ones) are affiliate links.

  1. Bake them “the” biscuits from Ted Lasso and of course make sure you deliver them in a pink box.

There are several recipes for the famous biscuits from Ted Lasso. Apple TV shared the official recipe with Today Food 🙂 and you can see the recipe here.

And when it comes to pink box… Amazon and Etsy have several ones that would work…

  1. A tree ornament: Believe or Be A Goldfish
  1. Give a donation in their name to a local charity / organize a toy drive

If you know a cause that is close to their heart, donating it to that cause in their name is a thoughtful way to show them your appreciation. Plus, Ted Lasso would approve. If you do not know a cause close to their heart, you can always donate to the food pantry close to you or find a school project in donorschoose.org , contact your local hospital, local shelter and ask them if they would benefit from a toy drive.

  1. A notebook (Because can you ever have too many notebooks?)

Don’t you dare settle for fine Spiral Notebook on RedBubble ($14)

  1. Wall art to make them smile.

Something on the smaller smile to fit in different rooms or on a desk. (Keep in mind the frame isn’t included).

  1. A little bag they can look at as they work or in the morning

To organize make-up or headphones/cables or some pens/crayons… those little bags can also make your loved ones smile as they use them.

  1. Decor for their laptop/phone and more

8. Ted Lasso-Inspired Pencils – Caliopepaperie

  1. Because can you ever have enough mugs?
  1. How about a Ted Lasso game? Available on Amazon: $15.35
  • Life at AFC Richmond isn’t always simple, but Ted Lasso knows how to rally his team! Now you can join the coaching staff and show that you believe in Believe!
  • This feel-good party game is all about having fun, the Lasso way!

BONUS GIFT (and a little of self-promotion because as Ted Lasso would say, “Believe in yourself”…): A COPY OF #TheLeftoverBride (Kindle/Apple/B&N/Google Play and more... – PaperbackHardcoverAudiobook).

If they like romance books, you could gift them my novel #TheLeftoverBride and let them know that Ryan grunts like Roy Kent 🙂 This is not a sports romance. And yes, there’s no soccer in it. But again Ryan, an injured hockey player who needs to reevaluate his career (and his life) now that he most likely won’t be able to play again, grunts like Roy Kent. And he may be grumpy but he has a heart of gold. And this book has been compared to “Hallmark’s movie sexier and sassier cousin” and “fun with a lot of chemistry.” So, don’t hesitate to one-click it today for you or for a loved one. 🙂

BONUS – Three Black Friday Deals For Writers (2022) A self-published author's diary

There are a lot of sites listing Black Friday deals for writers such as Kindlepreneur Black Friday Deals For Writers 2022. The list below is made up of three Black Friday Deals I’m either going to use or am thinking about using. One Stop For Writers (40% for 6 month plan with BF2022): I’ve been using One Stop Writers for more than a year, I think, and it has helped me so much. I don’t use all the features (yet) but I always turn to it when I’m revising. The emotion thesaurus, emotions amplifier, colors and patterns and so much more have been so so helpful to me. I have also used The Character Builder to help me craft Alessandro. So, if you’ve enjoyed #SweetsForLove and the grumpy yet charming bodyguard, part of his characteristics came from using One Stop For Writers. Inkers Con 2021 on Demand (currently 50% off): I really learned a lot during the 2022 Mini-Con (it had four classes, including one with Becca Syme and another on budgeting which has helped me making profits this year – so yay!). There are 27 presentations in Inkers Con and so many I’d like to listen to from the 2021 Inkers Con. 2021 Inkers Con classes on sale for HALF OFF this weekend only (ends Monday at midnight ET). The normal price is $245 but use coupon code HALF21 and pay only $122.50 (or break it into two payments). Access is for 6 years with 100% money-back guarantee. ProWritingAid: : ProWritingAid is a grammar checker, style editor, proofreader, and writing coach all in one. I’ve been using ProWritingAid since August 2022. And I personally like it more than Grammarly. The one thing holding me back from the lifetime deal is that my current yearly subscription is ending in August 2023 and I don’t get a pro-rated discount for the other months… so I might wait until then to see if they have another discount. Or I’ll wait until next November. Buuuuut if you’re currently looking to use ProWritingAid, they’re currently running a 50% off for selected plans. Okay, I know I said three … but here’s another one… 100 photo/vector downloads from Depositphotos (lifetime) for $39 – it’s great for promo or covers… I won’t be using – but only because I use Canva Pro and still have pictures available on Depositphotos from a past deal. — Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/elodie-nowodazkij/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/elodie-nowodazkij/support
