OSCOO Car Air Purifier, Ionizer & USB Charger (Rose Gold)

This OSCOO Car Air Purifier Ionizer & USB Charger comes in a gift-worthy white box. I would suggest it for anyone on your list, but those who spend a good deal of time traveling need this gadget. Likewise, anyone who has a smoker in there or who has asthma or any breathing condition. There is a warranty card enclosed, as Oscoo offers a limited one-year guarantee. Besides that, there is a little pamphlet (it is plug and play, after all).

Although I love it for its performance, it does not escape me that it is simply gorgeous. I bought it in Rose Gold. I have been using this car ionizer for a month now. It has been working wonderfully. You know it is working as there is a blue light that glows when you plug it in. The light is pleasant and not terribly blinding, which is important in a vehicle.

Negative ions help ease stress as well as take care of smells. They can lessen the symptoms of asthma and other conditions.

It still seems a bit like magic to me, but if you have spent any time near the ocean, you might remember how it made you feel. I have only had the experience a few times. Those are some of my all-time favorite memories. There was just such a feeling of well-being.

As for this technology, I knew it seriously worked years ago when I got a “new to me” vehicle. There was a nondescript stale odor in the car. The previous owner had noticed, as there were umpteen “pine tree type” air fresheners scattered around the vehicle. Nearly resigned to the situation, I researched possible solutions and took a chance when I bought one. As it turned out, mere days after plugging it in, my olfactory sense picked up– nothing!

As glad as I was that the ionizer took care of the problem of the odor in the car, I admit wishing that it doubled as a charger. Whenever my family needed to plug in a phone or tablet, it meant I needed to swap one out with my purifier. Now that we have this model, the charger capability is there for us anytime. The charging is fast, with its Quick Charge 3.0 technology. My iPhone 5S takes about an hour for a full charge.

Beyond the dual tasks of ionizing and charging, it can save lives. Seriously, it has a safety hammer tool that can be used to break out a window in case of an emergency. Buying something useful like this charger that has this added benefit makes more sense than getting a gadget having a single purpose (which no one hopes to use).

Naturally, the more you are in the vehicle, the more you will appreciate the difference and reap the benefits from this device. My late husband used to drive trucks. If he were still doing so today, I would have gotten him this charger so that he could keep in touch with us, enjoy a healthier environment (important especially in such close quarters), and could protect himself (or others) in an emergency. On second thought, I would not have gotten the same one. He would have preferred the other colors more. :-

APEKX B1 Bluetooth Earbuds – Immersive Sound— Even From Lower Volumes

These Apekx  B1 Bluetooth Earbuds have sets of S/M/L butterfly ear hooks so that they fit nearly everyone. They are comfortable in my ears and stay put as well or better than others I have owned.

On a charge, you get over five hours of time to talk or listen. If you run them completely down, they charge quickly enough. It takes just around sixty minutes. The standby time is supposed to be 180 hours; which is incredible to me.

The most important factor is the sound quality. I mainly listen to music, but occasional podcasts and videos, too. The sound is full, with good bass and clarity. It is an immersive experience. Ambient noise gets filtered well. My daughter and I tested them together. When she wore them at a normal volume for her, I could not hear the song she was playing. The same was true when I had them on. Also, we could not make out what the other person said when we had music going. That said, of course, these are not the earphones to wear if you need to be aware of your surroundings.

These are the pair I wear when I can just lose myself in the music for a while– whether I am working at my desk, performing other tasks around the house, dancing, or relaxing. Music has always been the saving grace in my life. I take it seriously.

Apekx might just get that the soundtracks of our lives mean a great deal to us.

I suggest gifting this pair to someone who has a penchant for turning the volume too high because they want to hear everything and get an immersive experience from their media. They might just turn it down and save their hearing possibly.

These Apekx Bluetooth Headphones come with both a 30-day money back guarantee and a one-year warranty.

Funny “Go Away” Coffee Mug

I like this “Go Away” Coffee Mug a good deal. This is a large mug. It holds 13 oz of beverage, but you would have to fill it to the very rim. Personally, that is not my habit. I tend to fill this cup with 10 oz of coffee, which is roughly the amount of liquid showing in the product picture. For me, this is a good amount of beverage. I drink slowly, so a hot drink filled all the way to the brim would get cold by the time I finished.

With durable, thick-walled glass, it feels substantial. The humorous message is on both sides so that all can see it. It would be perfect as a gift for someone who works in the public service industry, for instance. This glass is dishwasher and microwave safe.

If I were to suggest anything, it would be that the handle might be a bit more spacious so that all my fingers might fit into the handle. All in all, the “Go Away” Coffee Mug makes for a charming conversation starter.

If you want to order one for yourself or that decidedly non-morning person in your life, here is the Amazon product page.

Go Away Mug 1

Dulce Cocina Bamboo Coasters [6]

Dulce Cocina

Pros:
These six Dulce Cocina Bamboo Coasters arrive in a handy holder. They are attractive and inviting to use. I prefer bamboo when possible for its sustainability. The look is quite cool. If you are one who likes large drinks, these are an ample size for even a huge thermos. My favorite use for them is to set under my bamboo essential oil diffusers. They protect my tables from leaks and spills with their ample grooves and look stellar, being bamboo as well.

Cons:
The disks, being bamboo, are lightweight. They are also slippery. They could slide off a table. The surface makes me overly concerned with the way I set a glass down, lest it tips over.

Here is the Amazon product page if you are interested in getting a set of these quality bamboo coasters for yourself.

 

Aicok Single Serve Coffee Maker

This Aicok Single Serve Coffee Maker has a stainless steel body design. It is durable and sturdy and should be around for years. The Aicok is also BPA free.

The machine is compatible with Keurig’s 10oz coffee pods. I have been enjoying many cups now with no issue. I used to have a Keurig maker in the past, but I gave it away to a loved one. It is surprising to me how much I like having one again. It is incredibly handy! I save money often by using a reusable pod filled with coffee my family enjoys.

The size of this machine is so compact that I am toying with the idea of putting it on my desk for even more convenience. At only 8.5 x 4.9 x 9.1 inches and not even 2.5 pounds, it’s got a small enough footprint for sure for all but the tiniest desks. I still love my French press, but this is excellent for those times that only one person wants coffee. If we both do not want coffee, we generally will not make a pot, as we do not want to waste any. This way, we get coffee whenever we like regardless whether the other person is in a java mood.

The cartridge is removable and is top rack dishwasher safe, which makes it easy to keep it pristine. I would not use the sterilizer cycle to be on the safe side, however. It is a definite plus to me that most of my travel mugs fit s

The one button operation makes it simple for even the most bleary-eyed to make their morning brew. This machine has an auto-shut off and protection against overheating. It is UL certified.

The Aicok Single Serve Coffee Maker has a 100% guarantee, as well as a 24-month manufacturer warranty, so there is no risk.

BeautyYa Waist Pack with Water Bottle

This BeautyYa Waist Pack with Water Bottle is an attractive wearable belt perfect for many activities; bargain shopping at indoor or outdoor markets, climbing, hiking, jogging, running or walking.

Many jogging and running outfits do not have pockets. This accessory does nicely in those cases. The belt fits me perfectly and sits at the waist nicely. I usually do not wear belts as they can hurt my midsection, but this one has not so far.

There are three front pockets. The first is a holder complete with a clear 10oz sports water bottle, which is a nice bonus. There is a zippered pocket which is ideal for a cell phone. It is amply sized even for the largest phones on the market. There is an earphone slot, too, so you can enjoy an audiobook, music, or talk on the phone as needed. The third pocket is great to put necessary things such as cards, cash, and keys.

If you are interested in getting one for yourself or a loved one, the link is here.

Hong Bo Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds

These Hong Bo H901 Wireless Bluetooth Headphones come with three sets (S/M/L) of ear hooks and earbud tips, a micro USB charging cable, and a user manual. This H901 is a seriously quality pair. The sound is excellent and full. It is balanced. Nice! The bass is not going to blast you across the room, but it is perfect for me. The headphones have a variety of ear pieces so that you are guaranteed a great fit. I can wear these for quite a stretch without discomfort.

Pairing with the latest 4.1 technology is simple. I just press the button on the leftmost earbud after turning on my device’s Bluetooth. The voice tells you the power is on and then that there is a connection made. It could not be easier. I use these with my Kindle Fire 8, and I love it! This Bluetooth solution is so much better than putting a tablet in one’s pocket.

These headphones stay put in my ears no matter what I do, including working out. If you get a call, these will allow you to pick it up or reject it, talk, and then hang up. The talk time on a charge is 10-hours! When finished with the call, your music starts back where you were with no issue.

The battery is long-lasting on these Hong Bo earphones. The battery has never quit on me when I have needed it, as there is an 8-hour listening time. There is a 250-hour standby time. I do not need to charge them often, either. That is convenient. These are so good that I am buying another set for my daughter.

If you are interested in getting a pair for yourself, here is the Amazon product page.

Rackaster Fidget Hand Spinner Toy

My daughter and I have checked out about a dozen spinner focus toys so far. This model made a great impression on us.

Fidget toys have become a hot commodity and frequent topic of discussion. You have probably heard about the list of benefits elicited from their use. ADD, ADHD, anxiety disorders, Aspergers and Autism are just the “A-list” of examples. Bad habits are easier to overcome for some. Enhanced focus is a benefit for me. Downtime is enjoyable.

This red spinner is an EDC [Every Day Carry] toy. I had no idea until I did some research that there are about sixty styles and types of fidget spinners. There are more than thirty options from which to choose when it comes to the chain and cube varieties. It has got to be the phenomenon of the year.

This Rackarster Fidget Hand Spinner Toy is a solid competitor among the field with its 608 inline skate bearing, ABS plastic body, and hybrid ceramic (non-3D printed) bearing. The body design is the most common one on the market. The spins are pretty impressive with most being over two minutes and over three not being too uncommon in my experience. Where this one shines for me is how effortlessly it glides and has little noise except a satisfying little whir.

I use this by spinning it in my hand with my fingers, on a flat surface and even on a pencil or pen after I have taken the middle caps off. Personally, I get a focus boost out of this Rackarster Fidget Tool. I have a bit of adult ADD going on. Having one of these gadgets handy just seems to get me to concentrate better and be less scattered in my thinking. Maybe it is even almost a placebo effect based on that when I use it; my intention is to become more focused. Whatever it is, I will take the benefit.

The Rackarster is not the glitziest model out there, it has no lights nor multiple colors, but I do not need any of that myself. This EDC is a good spinner whether it’s your first or twenty-first piece. Had someone told me I would be collecting “toys,” I would not have believed it. I finally found a trend I enjoy.

Portable Handheld Fabric Steamer

This Notting Portable Handheld Fabric Steamer is a handy little tool to keep your clothing looking top notch. It is so compact at  8.25″ tall that it is perfect for travel as well as home use. It is light weight at just over one pound, too. The 140ml tank seems deceptively small, but you can go for a while before it runs out.

Who has time for ironing? Anyone. It takes only a minute to heat the water to boiling. Steaming your garments could not be easier. Fill the reservoir, plug the unit in, turn the switch on, wait about 60 seconds, then attack those wrinkles.

I have used mine mainly for my curtains and draperies and even my shower curtain. It is so much easier to do while they are hanging. It not only removes unsightly wrinkles, but it neutralizes odors and refreshes the fabric. I have used it on my daughter’s scrubs for work, as well.

The power is automatically shut off when the water level is low for safety. There is a 30-day money back guarantee as well as a 24-month warranty, so there is no risk.
