Now, I know what you’re thinking: How do I get Netflix into a stocking? It’s actually easy! Did you know that you can buy gift cards for Netflix at places like Safeway and Staples? If you’re as late on finishing your Christmas shopping as I am…ahem…this is the perfect solution! As part of the Netflix Stream Team, I received a surprise box of goodies in the mail this month, including gift cards good for a year’s subscription to Netflix, packaged on funny backing cards perfect for gifting. I was so excited to pass these along – I mailed one of them to my friends, with my “Must watch” recommendation: Man of Tai Chi!
The other gift card is going to my dad, and I am so excited because it is the perfect gift for him. I have been telling him for years that he would love Netflix and had actually been planning to just get him a gift subscription at some point, anyway. My other gift to him is that I am holding onto the gift card until I next go home to England to visit him (It’s good for a year!), so that I can set everything up for him. He has an older TV, and although there are Netflix-compatible players that will work with it, it will require an adapter, so the next time I’m there I’m going to overhaul his TV setup and get it all working smoothly for him so that he doesn’t have to mess with it. He is going to LOVE it!
