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.

ROOROO Tri-Spinner Fidget Focus Toy

The RooRoo Tri-Spinner Fidget Gadget is an EDC [Every Day Carry] toy. I had no idea until I did some research that there are well over seventy unique styles and types of these fidget- focus spinners. There are more than thirty options from which to choose when it comes to the chain and cube varieties. It is the phenomenon of the year.

Those who might elicit benefits from fidget spinner use include people with: ADD, ADHD, anxiety disorders, Aspergers and Autism– and those are just the ones beginning with the letter “A.” Bad habits are easier to overcome for some. Enhanced focus is a benefit for me. Downtime is enjoyable.

This RooRoo Fidget Spinner Toy is a solid competitor among the field with its 608 inline skate bearings and ceramic body. The body design is the commonest on the market. My model came without the “ROO” lettering on the caps, which I do not mind in the slightest.

The spins are impressive with all of them lasting more than three minutes in my time trials.

Time Trials – Flat Surface

1 – 3 minutes, 10 seconds

2 – 3 minutes, 20 seconds

3 – 3 minutes, 14 seconds

4 – 3 minutes, 23 seconds

As you can see, the spins were amazingly consistent. I tried to give it a decent spin but surely did not put much strength into it. I wanted to get a baseline only. Most people would tend to get longer results.

Where this one shines is how effortlessly and smoothly it glides and that it has nearly no noise except a satisfying little whir. It cannot be much louder than a hummingbird’s wings. When used as intended, disturbing other people seems unlikely.

This RooRoo Fidget Spinner is not the glitziest model out there; it has no lights, nor multiple colors, for example. I do not require any of that myself. This EDC is a good, reliable spinner. Had someone told me I would be collecting “toys,” I would not have believed it. I finally found a trend I enjoy.

The RooRoo Tri-Spinner has a lifetime money back guarantee, so there is no risk.

Inflatable Travel Neck Velvet Pillow

This JXZH U-Shaped Inflatable Travel Neck Pillow Set includes the micro velvet cushion with a detachable, washable cover, a set of earplugs, an eye mask, and a handy carrying pouch to keep everything together.

It takes seconds to inflate, and the beauty of an inflatable cushion is that you control how hard or soft it is so that it is comfy for you– try doing that with a standard pillow. Deflating it also takes no time. You can store it that way for even more space savings, such as in a vehicle or your luggage.

I have used it in the car and enjoyed it during trips. I find it even more useful at home. Seriously, watching something or sitting up and reading in bed is better with this pillow on top of the regular bed pillow I use. It gives me support for my neck and head in addition to comfort. Otherwise, my head just sinks into the bed pillow, and it makes it hard to sit up properly. Mainly it is perfect for this use because of the camel-back shape design.

Bonebit Fitness Tracker Watch

This Bonebit Fitness Tracker Watch boasts a long battery life with an estimated 7-10 hours standby time and four days operating time on a full charge. To charge the watch, just detach the wristband and plug the end into an available 5V/1.0A USB power supply.

Using this heart rate monitoring personal device is simple. It does need a smartphone. It is not compatible with a computer or a tablet. This watch works with iOS 7.1 and above and Android 4.4 or above. You will need to download the free “Veryfit for Heart Rate” App from either the Apple Store or Google Play.

The sedentary alert is more convenient than the Chrome extension I had used. It still reminds me to get active often, and it goes with me. I expect to use this watch for more activities with increasing fitness levels. Primarily, for now, I am using the step counter. It is motivating me to increase my walking distance every day. It does take about thirty steps or so for the tracking to begin. Little changes can have long-lasting ripples, and I am looking forward to reaping the rewards on down the road.

The other feature I must brag on is the sleep quality monitoring function. I used to have an app that I loved that performed the same duty, but it no longer works. I have an adrenal condition, and frequent insomnia and knowledge about what is happening during sleep cycles may prove invaluable in reversing these difficulties. This Bonebit Fitness Tracker Watch is the right “step” for me at this “time.”

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.

 

Ralix Anxiety Stress Relief Fidget Cube

This Ralix Anxiety Stress Relief Fidget Cube was my first of its type. I did not know quite what to expect but knew it was becoming popular. These cubes can be useful for a host of maladies and conditions. I am an adult with ADD and some anxiety from time to time.

The cube has a rubberized feel to it, which is pleasant in itself. The six sides each have a different feature for fidgeting and for increasing focus. The colors work well together, and the look is sharp.

The cube’s six sides:

1) Joystick ***

2) Switch   ****

3) Rotating Disc ***

4) “Dice” – 5 buttons – 2 silent; 3 sound **

5) Rotating Ball / 3 suitcase-style dials **** / *

6) Thumb Rest ***

 

My favorite activities are the switch and the steel ball.

Suggestions:

The joystick could be pressed down for another activity.

I would prefer that the five dice buttons would either all sound or be silent

The three spinners would have at least a little tension to them.

I would not recommend that children take this to school and use it in a classroom situation, as some functions such as the switch are loud enough to be a distraction and get the student in trouble.

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.
