We have to hand it to the folks at Graceland and Elvis Presley Enterprises for being the architects behind a whole slew of clever Elvis gifts for the holidays--and all are available on shopelvis.com and elvis.com. The official Elvis merch team wanted to make sure all the gift items were super-special this year since it's the 75th anniversary of Graceland. I'm happy to say that this writer was the second person in NewYork City to be gifted with the new runaway hit, the Elvis Presley Mr. Potatohead, and we couldn't be prouder of that fact. It was NBC's Al Roker who got the very first Elvis Mr. Potatohead back in October--simply because so many people who saw pics of it on the web thought it looked as much like the famed weatherman/anchor as The King himself! We here at financefoodie.com have this as our very top pick as a kitschy but collectible Elvis holiday gifts in the 20 buck range (it retails for exactly $20.00, as a matter of fact).
We think our true-blue foodie readers will love the Elvis Blue Christmas Wine (Pinot Noir) featuring a pic of Elvis in red on the label ($14.99), the Elvis Blueberry Green Tea (25 bags in a cute canister for $9.99), and the Elvis On Tour Blu-Ray Disc With Book ($34.99) to indulge in while drinking that wine or tea!
shopelvis.com include Elvis Monopoly ($34.99) which is a special 75th anniversary edition of the game and said to probably become highly collectible in the future. And let's not forget the Elvis Has Left The Building Shopper Tote, which features a cool black and white shot of Elvis circa 1956 ($7.00).
