Cool Gadgets and Gifts for the Holidays

DSCN5786It’s that time of the year again – crazy holiday shopping, last minute gifts, and the “what to get the person who has everything”.

I’ve done most of my shopping this year online. Forget the crazy lines, and the crowded parking lots, I like to take my time check reviews (which is huge for me), use my coupon code and then have the package magically appear within the week on my doorstep!

But this year it has been a bit overwhelming for me. My husband has a big family and my family all still buys presents for each other and including all the nieces and nephews, it’s a lot! Usually we split it, he shops for his family and I shop for mine, and before I know it we’re done. Well I’ve done all the shopping this year and as I tear open the boxes to go through everything, it seems like I still have so much more to do. It’s the most wonderful time of the year haha!

One thing I like unique, cool gadgets that you don’t necessarily need but they’re fun to look at and just know that they exist! So here’s a few

Housewarmng Gift Ideas That Aren’t Cliche

Housewarming Gift Ideas

My sister-in-law and her hubby just moved into their new home last weekend and I wanted to give them a nice housewarming present. Not the cliche gift card, plant, or doormat…something cool, innovative, or home-made, maybe even a little techie. As I was perusing the internet, I found some pretty cool gadgets and ideas that I wanted to share.
