Do you want to encourage that teenager on your gift list to read? Check out our e-book mystery series, The Hunter and Holmes Mysteries. The series is about two teenaged boys living in the Silicon Valley who become amateur detectives to solve crimes and mysteries affecting themselves, their friends, and their community. This is a great gift for a teenager or young adult because they can read it on their smart phone, laptop, tablet, or reader. We also find that many adults enjoy these stories as well. Eight illustrated books in the series are now available, along with a new graphic novel called Senior Year. For more information on the series click here.
Another good gift idea would be a ChucksConnection baseball cap or Converse tote bag. Click on the picture links at the bottom of this page to order.

What chucks wearer wouldn't like a new pair of chucks for a present? Not sure what to buy in style, model, or size? As far as model and color goes, why not choose something similar to what he or she is now wearing, but perhaps in a different color or pattern. Or cleverly bring the subject up in a conversation. People who like chucks will be more than happy to tell you what kinds of chucks they like or would like to have. Even if you totally strike out on model selection, brand new chucks are easily exchanged. Click on any of the shoe links below to get started.
What could be better than a pair of high top chucks under the tree?
