I‘ve been a brand ambassador for Netflix going on my third year now, and I’m happy to share the love with you guys this holiday season. ‘Cause sharing is caring, except when it’s herpes. Not only will I list 12 reasons to gift Netflix, but I’ll give you a few chances to win a Netflix Gift Card below.
Fewer Calories than Fruit Cake
That's right, watch a cake-load of food porn. My favorites: Chef, The Mind of a Chef, Le Chef and: Chef's Table
This might sound like a stretch, but I've always wanted to fall asleep listening to my favorite chick flicks, and with Netflix on my phone, I can 'While You Were Sleeping' my way to sleep: Sabrina
By the fire on the big screen or in the kitchen as you wash dishes or fold laundry. It's the modern answer to 'whistle while you work.'
Legos Upon Legos
Legos, Legos, and more Legos. Saturday morning cartoons, solved: Legos
Help Your Kids Cheat on Book Reports
I'm very moral, which is why I'm burying this in the middle of the list. As an English major, I can tell you, I always watched the film adaptation in lieu of reading the book, when available. Ahem: Great Expectations
In Someone Else's Shoes
Open your door to 'Crazy Eyes.' It's perhaps the only time in your life where you'll gladly open your home to convicted felons. Read about my Orange Is The New Black on-set visit
You Can Go Back!
And you can take your kids with you, reliving your favorite shows from the 80s, er, or 90s. Ooh, Gilmore Girls binge. Fraiser, and: The Wonder Years
Never Lose Your Place
'Now, where was I?' is something of the past. If you were watching on TV, then want to pick up where you'd left off in the kitchen, Netflix has you covered. Continue watching.
A Teaching Moment
If your kids have a problem at school, there's an episode for it. Watch it together and use it as a jumping off point to get the conversation started.
Sexy as Hell
Why not gift Netflix with a card attached, listing the shows and films you'll marathon your way through in bed. Surely these two would approve: Frank & Claire
No, no, no, You're Not Alone
Your life is not an R.E.M. song. Remind your friends of this, especially the friend without any romantic prospects, I'm sure she already binges on Netflix, let's face it. So, gift her another year of companionship, keeping up with this one's skirt: Bridget Jones
Don't LOL. Snort aloud.
Gift a whole lot of funny. From stand-up specials to The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt life will be lived in better health, and put one and all in a better mood: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
In exchange for sharing 1 post each month about Netflix programming, I receive a subscription to Netflix. Though I often share more often because I overshare like it's a sport. Opinions, while everyone's got one, are all mine.
