"A Tribute is 'the most meaningful gift on Earth.' It is a video montage of friends and family sharing their gratitude for someone they want to celebrate. Tribute's collaborative video technology makes it easy to invite friends, collect videos and compile the final video. To date, 80% of Tribute recipients have reported crying “Tears of Joy.” Seriously, that is an actual statistic they track! You can almost think of Tribute as a “eulogy for the living.”
My mom absolutely loved this gift and I have a special discount for you. If you start your tribute before July 1, 2017, you can have $15 off! Use the code "Niver15" so your family can have a special memory too! So far there have been over 50,000 Tributes created in more than 30 countries. The New Yorker calls it “Hallmark 2.0" and it has been featured on The TODAY Show, Forbes and The Guardian.
You might be worried that it will take you over ten hours to make this happen but it can be done in under 20 minutes:
- Invite – Paste a list of emails and Tribute will schedule automatic reminders for people to submit.
- Collect – Users visit a Tribute page where they learn more and submit their video.
- Compile - Submitted videos are automatically compiled and then you can add cool effects.
2. Get DOOBLICATED
Have you always wanted to be a doll? Well now you can be! My family went to the shop in Los Angeles and went into a special room with millions of cameras and a few weeks later, we were ready to stand on the counter like our own set of action figures!
- Stop into a doob™ retail outlet. We'll take your info, check for stray hairs, and help you nail your pose.

3. Matryoshka Stacking Dolls
This one I do love but the woman who painted them for us is not doing it anymore.
I just think it is so amazing my sister even found it, I had to share the photo!
This gift blew me away! This was the first one that my sister created of this list and we presented it to my parents in an art gallery and it was AMAZING! Other people actually wanted to buy our project. It did take many hours to find and scan in all of our print photos from albums of when we were little, when our parents were little, when their parents were little but you could use digital photos that are more recent and do the project a bit more rapidly. There are many print options and the canvas looks beautiful framed and in my parent's living room.
5. LG Products
I know you are looking at this list thinking I am just so BUSY--can't I just order it on Amazon? So here are few things you can just ORDER today!
My cell phone is the LG V20 which came out in Fall 2016. Every time I take photos, everyone says, "Your photos are better than mine." When I am with a group of travel writers, they often say, "Let Lisa take it, her phone is better!" So I recommend the LG V20 if you like to take video and photos. There is also a brand new LG G6. I had the LG G4 which I loved and only switched to the LG V20 because it is designed for video. I now have over one million video views so I am partial to better and better video footage.
What about the Bluetooth® LG Tone Ultra, which is under $100. Not only will your favorite family member look fashionable while listening, but it will also sound as if they’re in the recording studio, thanks to JBL Signature Sound that allows for more bass and Quad-Layer Speaker Technology for well-balanced sound in all bands. Compatible with Android and iOS devices, this headset gives more than half a day of listening time.
Whatever gift you choose, remember to spend time with the people you love. It was a great gift to me to find these photos with my grandparents and scan them so they will last. My parents have truly appreciated their special gifts and I am so thankful to have a very wonderful and creative sister! Happy Everything! Lisa
