iTimo Batman Car Door Light

Do you know someone who loves Batman?  If so I have the perfect gift idea for them.  This wireless light shows the batman symbol on the ground every time the door opens.  Imagine how this will look at night!  It turns off when you close the door, or after being displayed for 2 minutes.

I think it is a fun idea, one of those gifts that obviously they would ever expect and just adds a little fun to life.  We can all do with a little fun and a smile or two.  It would also attract a lot of attention when others eee what happens when the car door opens.

It’s easy to install with the sticky pads that come with the box and it gives you complete directions on the box.  Pick one of these up now and the next holiday, or a day when someone could really do with a pick-me-up, hand them this and watch the smiles.

If you have a 4-door car, you can even put this on the back doors for the kids because they will even like it as well.  The package contains two lights so you can put them on 2 of the doors, or even to different vehicles if you like.

They are inexpensive as well, at a price range anyone can afford.

You can purchase this Wireless Batman Car Door Light on Amazon.com as well as Amazon.ca

DEYARD Precision Screwdriver Set

If someone in your house repairs watches, computers, gaming systems, glasses or anything else that requires small tools they will love this DEYARD Precision Screwdriver Set.  The set comes with a remarkable 40 screwdriver heads and 7 ratchet heads, anti static tweezers, ratchet extension, base handle and a flexible ratchet extension.  In other words it has everything you need to work on the small stuff.

I know in our house we are constantly having to put batteries in toys that have tiny little screws to open the battery compartment and it can be a challenge.  I also seem to need to tighten the screw on my glasses.  There are so many uses for this set and the fact it all sits together in a compact little case means you should have it for many many years.

This set is so reasonably priced it would make a great gift for about the price you would pay for pizza delivery!

Whip It Whipped Cream Maker

To say I am addicted to kitchen gadgets would be an understatement.  My dream would be a huge kitchen like the super rich have and untold amounts of storage space as well as pantry space.  I would fill it up with every useful gadget I could get my hands on.

Unfortunately, I, like most people are not rich, and I don’t have a huge kitchen either, but I make do.  I still manage to get my fair share of gadgets and this has forced me to come up with creative storage solutions!

I have wanted a Whipped Cream Maker for about as long as I can remember.  Sure, I can go to the store and by real whipped cream in a can, but it is expensive, and you are limited because you can’t change the amount or type of sweetener, nor can you change the flavor of it.

The Whip It is actually a dream come true for someone like me.  It is super simple to use and you can make whipped cream exactly the way you want.  You simply add 500ml of 35% (heavy) cream, sweetener if you like (I like to add a bit of confectioners/icing suger) and flavoring if desired and coloring.  You can add a couple drops of food coloring and some caramel flavoring to top a caramel flavored desert, or a couple drops of red food coloring and strawberry flavoring to top a bowl of sliced strawberries.  The choices are endless.

After you add the ingredients it’s just a matter of replacing the top, adding an N2O cartridge and screwing it on, giving it a few shakes and you have instant whipped cream.  It is not over whipped, it is stabilized and perfect.  The N2O is what bonds with the cream and stabilizes it.  If you don’t know what N2O is, it’s actually Nitrous Oxide, more commonly known as laughing gas.  N2O not only fluffs up our whipped cream, it inhibits bacteria from growing.  So when you make up a can of whipped cream, it will last as long as the “Use by” date on the original cream container which is often a couple of weeks or more.

Having whipped cream on hand makes it easy to add a little dollop of cream to make even the most simple desserts like jello or pudding extra special.

White Noise Machine

Falling asleep made easy

While I generally don’t have a problem falling asleep I usually wake numerous times during the night, and sometimes I just can’t get back to sleep because my brain won’t turn off.  I will start worrying about everything I have to do the next day, worry about this or that and before you know it I’ve been awake for a couple of hours and that means I will wake up tired and who wants to start the day like that?

Now I have heard of white noise and the benefits but I wasn’t sure it was for me.  I was intrigued by this noise machine because it has so many different choices.  You can choose between White Noise, Rain, Birds, Brook, Lullaby 1, Lullaby 2, Ocean ,Thunderstorm.

My personal favorite is Thunderstorm.  When there is a wicked storm pounding down outside my window I sleep like a baby and the white noise machine gives me that same feeling.  Other features include an alarm clock, a timer to have shut down the white noise after so many hours, date and time.  This is a great way to help yourself or the little one’s in the house get some sleep so they can remain well rested.

You can purchase the DBPower White Noise Machine on Amazon.ca and a similar one on Amazon.com

Canwelum LED Rechargeable Flashlight

Safety first…

We live in a safety conscious world yet most of us are ill prepared for any sort of emergency.  Whether it be a small one light losing power temporarily, being caught in the dark while on a hike, or getting a flat on a dark road with no light to help you out.

One of the reasons is that for so many years flashlights used normal batteries and flashlights used them up fast and they were expensive to replace.  Another was that most flashlights were bulky, so not exactly portable.

Well, this Canwelum LED Rechargeable Flashlight just makes sense.  It is small in size and light weight so it is easily portable.  You can throw it in a pocket, purse, backpack, waist pouch etc. and it will be there when you need it.  The lithium ion batteries it uses stay charged for a long time and last longer than other types of rechargeable batteries.

This light in incredible bright, and has several different light settings which is High, Medium, Low, Strobe and S.O.S.  Yes, that’s right the flashlight will send out an S.O.S. signal so if you ever get in trouble the S.O.S. signal will help get emergency crews to you quicker.  It even has a zoom function so you can concentrate the light and zoom it in.

It comes with a lithium-ion battery and a battery charger.  Everything you need to stay safe both around the house and outside of it.  This would make a very thoughtful gift to someone you care about.

You can purchase the Canwelum LED Flashlight on Amazon.ca and Amazon.com

Laser Infrared Thermometer

Everyone needs one!

Believe it or not Infrared laser thermometers could be an incredible asset to have.  At first you might not think you need one, but trust me you do.  So below is a list of just a few of the things you can with it.

  • Fridge and freezers control their temperature by numbers, 1-10 or something like that, not actual temperature.  Guidelines for keeping your food the freshest are always listed in degrees.  If you use an laser thermometer it can instantly tell you if your fridge and freezer temperatures need adjusting.  This can save you money as food will not spoil as fast if kept at recommended temperatures.
  • You can test your oven temperatures to make sure your oven thermometer is accurate.  Overcooked or under cooked food is a waste.  If your oven temperature is off and you have digital controls on your oven you can set it to compensate for the inaccuracy.
  • You can go around your house and see where the energy leaks are and if you have numerous areas, but limited funds to fix, you can see which one is the worst offender using the laser thermometer and do that one first.
  • Many BBQ’s have thermostats on them, but I have yet to find one that still worked or was accurate.  Use the laser thermometer to find out the exact temperature.
  • Double check bath water for children to make sure it isn’t too hot.  I use the wrist method, but this thermometer can confirm it is within acceptable levels for children.
  • Check outdoor play equipment for temperature to make sure children don’t burn themselves on metal slides etc.
  • Check interior car temperatures.
  • Check the temperature of food you are taking out of the microwave or oven to see if it is hot enough.
  • Even if your thermostat is set to a certain temperature it doesn’t mean every room in the house will be that temp.  You can go around and check to see if you need to provide supplemental heat or cooling to those rooms.

As you can see the list is just about endless.  This thermometer registers a temperature instantly and is highly accurate and has an extremely wide temperature range, so wide that you can check anything you should encounter in everyday life, no matter how hot or cold.

All this for less than what we pay for our family to have pizza delivered.
