For the Lucious in your life, I’d say money in any form would be the ideal gift — cash, checks, gift cards, you name it. But if you feel like getting creative, a strategy game like Risk, Settlers of Catan, or Pandemic might be up his or her alley, too
Taraji P. Henson introduced the world to Cookie Lyon in Empire‘s first season. Henson is responsible for a substantial amount of the show’s success. Can you believe that she’s been an underpaid actress for most of her career? Get your favorite Empire fan Henson’s book, Around The Way Girl to learn more about her life.
The youngest Lyon son enjoys the finer things in life. Fine booze, killer threads, and actual spotlight will do the trick for the Hakeem in your life. Cookie Lyon is Hakeem’s mother on the series but his real mother, Andria Mayberry recently released a book. Buy it for your favorite Hakeem Lyon fan.
For the soulful singer-songwriter, the Jamal in your life would probably enjoy an lined old-school music notebook. Based on Jamal’s new-found love of art, a blank canvas and some paints may stimulate his or her imagination. And if the Jamal in your life also falls in love with photographers, perhaps a new DSLR camera is on their Christmas list. Jamal is played by Jussie Smollett. Buy his first movie, The Skinny for your favorite Empire fan.
Your Andre is a complicated, but spiritual and intelligent person. A snazzy day planner for 2016 could be the perfect gift, as well as spiritual book from the inspirational section of Amazon. Andre is played by Trai Byers. His wife, Grace Byers recently released the book I Am Enough. Buy it for your favorite member of #TeamBooBooKitty.
