  • Morning Coffee: Melissa & Doug toys for $10

    Amazon’s Gold Box deal of the day is 50% off select Melissa & Doug toys – pay just $10 for a $20 toy that encourage imaginative play. The Melissa & Doug Deluxe Magnetic Responsibility Chart is also just $10 today – it gets 4.5 out of 5 stars in 197 reviews.

    Amazon’s Instant Video deal of the day is Henry’s Crime with Keanu Reeves and Vera Farmiga – it gets 3 out of 5 stars in 10 reviews. Bridesmaids, Crazy Stupid Love, Green Lantern, Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2, The Change-Up, and Horrible Bosses are still $0.99 each right now. When you rent a video from Amazon, you generally have 30 days to watch it, and 24 to 48 hours from the time you started watching it to finish it.

    Today is the last day to use your free $5 holiday credit at daily deal site Eversave – they’re offering an Omaha Steaks holiday package plus $25 Cabela’s gift card for just $74 and Free Shipping after the $5 credit. It’s a $171 value, and would make a great gift. You can choose from one of two Omaha Steaks packages, and it looks like they both serve 8 so you could even serve it as your holiday meal.

    The “Holiday Flurry” Lightning Deals continue at Amazon, and I recommend scrolling them because it’s another day of random items. There’s a Dymo Label maker at 10:45 a.m. PST, a Dirt Devil at noon, a 1 TB hard drive at 12:45, and a Barbie fashion design sketch portfolio at 7:30.

    Amazon is offering the Pearl & Rosette Double Necklace pictured at right for just $13.99 ($20 value; no reviews). It’s a little unusual but very pretty, so it would make a great gift for the holidays or to add to your gift box.

    Get free Kindle downloads of Be Your Own Best Life Coach ($12.17 value; 4 out of 5 stars in 2 reviews), Boost Your Child’s Confidence ($12.17 value; no reviews), and Bullying: Brilliant Ideas for Keeping Your Child Safe & Happy ($12.17 value; 3.5 out of 5 stars in 7 reviews). If you don’t have a Kindle, you can use one of the free Kindle reading apps to read Kindle material on your computer, smartphone or tablet.

    Amazon’s free Android app of the day is Ice Cube Caveman ($0.99 value), a game for all ages that gets 3 out of 5 stars in 30 reviews.

    Facebook likers of Family Circle can get a free download of their “15 Favorite Holiday Cookies” cookbook.
