While I’m counting my blessings, getting down on turkey and enjoying my family this Thanksgiving, I’ll also be gearing up to start my holiday shopping the next day — “Black Friday” a deal seeker’s paradise! As you shop consider these celeb-centered gifts that are all available online so you don’t have to push through the crowds!
The Princess and the Frog Video Game
Disney will finally feature its first black princess in the movie that Anika Noni Rose and Oprah lend their voices too. Fans can experience Princess Tiana’s world of 1920’s New Orleans while triumphing over enemies, playing frog games in the bayou, creating music, and cooking food in the game available for Nintendo DS and Wii. Also, check out the Carol’s Daughter bath collection line featuring a bubble bath, detangler, shampoo, and conditioner that celebrate the new princess.

Tickets to Dreamgirls at the Apollo Theater
If you’ve never had a chance to see the play that inspired the movie that nabbed Jennifer Hudson that Oscar and also featured Beyonce, Jamie Foxx and Eddie Murphy, check out the Apollo’s version in New York. While you’ll have more than “one night only” to catch it don’t delay: the show opened on Sunday, November 22, 2009, and will only run for four weeks ending Sunday December, 6th.

BET original shows on DVD

There are so many celebrity scents on the market that your whole collection could read like A-list invite list. Mariah Carey recently teamed up with Elizabeth Arden to launch a new scent Forever last month and has been promoting the “opulent floral” scent along with her new album Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel. For the menfolk, Usher and 50 Cent are currently pushing new fragrances, Power by 50 Cent and VIP respectively.

If you’re going to hit a party it’s never a bad idea to bring a bottle. Diddy never misses an opportunity to let the world know he drinks his brand of vodka, Ciroc mixed with a little lemonade. Drink responsibly!

Christian Louboutin Heels
Almost every star from Beyonce to Ciara has pairs of the “red bottoms” in their closet. Last month Rihanna rocked a pair in Paris that I loved: the Pigalle 100 studded pumps. See what it’s like to walk in her shoes and cop your own pair, if you can manage the steep price tag.
