She’s a giftgenius.com and she has a variety if gift ideas that high profile couples would love; they might also appeal to you and to your wallet. We’re kind of using the celebrities for some inspiration, right Amy?
Amy Zalneraitis: Yeah, that’s right.
Audra Lowe: Okay, good to have you here.
Amy Zalneraitis: Thank you for having me.
Audra Lowe: The first couple we’re going to talk about is bachelorette Ali, her fiancé Roberto; they haven’t set a wedding date yet, right?
Amy Zalneraitis: Nope, they haven’t set a date yet.
Audra Lowe: So what’s the personality like?
Amy Zalneraitis: You see them as outdoorsy, down to earth. So the first gift suggestions we have are these Brodmann blades, which are state of the art ping pong paddles. They can be worn like gloves on either hand, so they make for a faster more competitive fun game.
Audra Lowe: How much are we looking at?
Amy Zalneraitis: $100.00 for the whole set.
Audra Lowe: Not bad. You have another gift there?
Amy Zalneraitis: Then we have this cooler-grill, which is all-in-one barbeque cooler. So the cooler holds up to 24-can beverages, then further in the bag—
Audra Lowe: I think it’s huge in there.
Amy Zalneraitis: And then it has a grill inside, so it’s removable. So for this while tote only $100.00, so good for romantic camping.
Audra Lowe: The griller is underneath here?
Amy Zalneraitis: Yeah, the grill is underneath and then you take it out.
Audra Lowe: So how much?
Amy Zalneraitis: It’s $100.00.
Audra Lowe: Now, let’s talk about Hillary Duff and Mike. They’ve just got married.
Amy Zalneraitis: They’ve got married in August up in Santa Barbara. You see them as fun and outgoing, so we have this personalized Moet bottle, which is great because it could be customized in Swarovski crystals so you can put the recipient’s name, the date they’ve got married or even something as simple as “Always and Forever”.
Audra Lowe: How much is something like this.
Amy Zalneraitis: That’s $90.00.
Audra Lowe: And then also you have another gift for them.
Amy Zalneraitis: Yes. We have something called the textograph, which is so cool because what you do is submit a photo and text up to two sentences and they use that text to recreate the photo. So, the words actually pixilated in the photo itself.
Audra Lowe: How many words are in that picture?
Amy Zalneraitis: That says, “Hillary and Mike, cheers to a marriage that may forever be even better than hoisting the cup.” That’s $250.00 for 18 x24.
Audra Lowe: Now we’re going to move on to Katy Perry and Russell Brand. They're getting married, actually this month, right?
Amy Zalneraitis: I think October, yeah. Supposedly in Maui but who knows really.
Audra Lowe: They're a little in the edgy side.
Amy Zalneraitis: Yes, edgy rock and roll. So, we have this monkey candle holder. This holds up to five candles. It’s made up of resin and it’s $287.00.
Audra Lowe: I like that. And the second gift for them.
Amy Zalneraitis: The second gift is from a company called by 20 by 200, and they're these prints that it’s great because the company’s home mission is to make art more affordable. So they pick prints from less known artist and sell them on their site for very reasonable prices.
Audra Lowe: And those really look nice, I like those.
Amy Salneraitis: They're really pretty cool, yeah.
Audra Lowe: Last couple, Alicia Keys-Swizz Beatz they’ve just got married, she’s having a baby as well. Two people who are in the music business, what would you pick for them?
Amy Salneraitis: We also music-focused gift and one art-focused. We have the iKick iK150, which is a sound system for the bedroom. The sound quality is incredible. You just plug in your iPod or iPhone and it comes with dual alarm clock, so any music-loving couple can wake up separately in the morning with their respective favorite song.
Audra Lowe: All right.
Amy Salneraitis: And then we have these leather cuffs from Lisa Lennard because they come with this silver tags that can be customized with words, like “Always” or the date they’ve got married. And they're really versatile so they can be layered with other pieces and worn every day.
Audra Lowe: Now iKICK here is $180 and these are?
Amy Salneraitis: The thinner one is $62.00 and the thicker one is $68.00.
Audra Lowe: You did a great job Amy. Thank you so much, I appreciate it.
Amy Salneraitis: Thank you for having me.
