We have had some incredible women on this podcast and as we prepare for the holidays, we want to take a minute to give a shout-out and support those women who are kicking butt this gift-giving season.

I am usually a last-minute shopper but this year I’m trying to be a bit more purposeful with my gifting. And, what better place to grab holiday gifts than from our Think Tank of Three guests!

Check out the Think Tank of Three gift guide for 2021!

Send Out Cards: Episode #30

In this episode, Seannon talked to us about sparking joy. And one way she does that is through sending out cards. They are perfect for sending a quick and easy seasons greetings and offering up a little joy to those around you. Sending a personalized card can help establish and strengthen business and personal relationships. It also helps people remember you when they need your product or service or want to refer someone. In a digital world, there is still something wonderful about getting a card in the mail and opening it to find a few sincere words that bring a smile to your face. Whether it’s a family member, friend, colleague or client – take a minute to send a card today and let that person know you appreciate them.

Check out Send Out Cards to create a personal touch and little joy for your relationships.

Queencare Self Care Products: Episode #20

Not only is Queencare rad because their products are amazing, but they are also run through a non-profit that helps young people of color learn how to run a business. The program, run through the Life Enrichment Group, teaches young women about entrepreneurship and business. The young women help make and sell the products that QueenCare sells and a portion of the proceeds benefit youth programming in the Seattle/King County area.

I’m telling you, the Shea Cream is hands down my very favorite. I hoard it. And I’ve maybe had a moment or two where I’ve yelled at my husband for using it. It’s the perfect stocking stuffer.

I also think the Indulge Deluxe set makes a fantastic gift. I know I’ve sent one to my mom and co-workers before.

Cellar Angels Wine for a Cause: Episode #18

I think I’ve made it pretty obvious that I’m a big wine lover. And I happen to think that wine makes a perfect gift.

At Cellar Angels you can purchase a bottle or set up a wine club subscription. Or if you’re looking to host a virtual get-together, you can schedule a virtual wine tasting.

And because giving back is important, with each wine order, you have the option to choose a charity partner to support with sales proceeds. It’s like giving two gifts in one.

Everyday Ritual Lounge and Sleepwear: Episode #40

This woman-owned business makes some of the most comfortable lounge and sleepwear I’ve ever tried. And when the pandemic hit, they created a line of masks that are not only cute and comfy but washable, reusable, and cotton. These masks have three layers and a polypropylene filter which is medical grade so you know you’ll be covered safely.

You can find Everyday Ritual products on their website but also at Nordstrom’s. The sleep shorts are awesome (I have two pairs) and so much of their loungewear is nice enough to be able to pull it off as business wear on a zoom call!

The Financial Mindset Fix Book & Merch: Episode #45

You’ve got to be careful when giving self-help books out as a gift because your message can really be misunderstood! However, wishing abundance on your friends and family fits the gift-giving season so well.

Give the gift of financial freedom and self-confidence by picking up a copy of The Financial Mindset Fix by Joyce Marter. This book has a 12 step program to help the reader feel more confident with money and themselves.

We also love the merch available on Joyce’s website! If you’re looking for t-shirts, hats, mugs, or journals then check out “Love is the Currency of Life”, “Feed Your Soul and Not Your Ego” and more!

NIKO Car Seat Cover for new parents: Episode #41

Ok, this admittedly might not be the sexiest of holiday gifts but I promise you parents are going to love it! The NIKO Car Seat Cover was born because our guest couldn’t find a car seat cover that didn’t pop off the seat, or didn’t cover the cup holders, or was waterproof and easy to clean.

This car seat cover fits most car seats, COMES WITH POCKETS, is machine washable, is super soft and has holes for the cup holders. Plus it comes in cute designs (I like the owls!) and is under $50.

 

There you have it! The Think Tank of Three’s gift guide for 2021.

What can I say? I love working with incredibly smart humans. I love to look at the big picture, build out a strategy, and only then dive into the tactics.

As with all things that are of true destiny, Reischea Canidate-Kapasouris believes, you don’t find your career, sometimes your career finds you.

Armed with the gift of gab and a natural feel for writing, broadcasting found it’s way into Reischea’s world after she graduated from the University of Southern California.

Reischea’s television career began in her hometown of Fresno, California, at then KJEO, channel 47. Her experience at the CBS affiliate was
invaluable; as she worked her way up from a sports intern, to sports producer/reporter, to full-time weekend sports anchor/reporter. That
experience propelled her to San Diego as the weekend sports anchor/reporter for KSWB, where she got her first opportunity to cover
professional sports teams on a regular basis in the Chargers and Padres.

In 2002 she was hired as the weekend sports anchor/reporter for FOX 5 WNYW in New York. There, Reischea was nominated for a New York
Local Emmy for her three-part series on “Diminishing African American’s in Baseball” in 2007. She was also given the opportunity to work on the
station’s community affairs show, Good Day Street talk where topics ranged from post 9/11 stress disorders, healthcare, music and more.
In 2008 opportunity knocked again, this time taking her to Bristol, Connecticut to join ESPN. While with the network, Reischea was able to
interview and interact with some of the biggest athletes and stars on the planet, which made for a pretty awesome experience.

After the birth of her awesome son, Agisi, Reischea focused full-time on the hardest job she’s ever had, being a Mom. But the television love never
went away and so she was able to slide in news anchoring with News12 Connecticut for a short time.

Fast forward to the addition of an amazing daughter, Chrisonia, and that center stone in her life, family, proved to be of necessary focus. As a Mom
of 2 and a wife to a phenomenal husband, Alexandros, Reischea has learned the dynamics of life are ever-changing. Now, focusing on her own
self-empowerment, Reischea is taking her experience in broadcast and bridging it over to a new adventure in the podcast world as a co-host on
Think Tank of Three.
