Zippo Heatbank 9s
As a sports parent, staying comfortable during sporting events is really important because you never know what the elements will throw at you. Until, my kids start choosing climate controlled sporting events, I have to rely on products like the Zippo Heatbank 9s. This is a rechargeable hand warmer that also doubles as a power bank for your electronic devices. If you purchase as many packs of disposable hand warmers as we do, you’ll see that the heat bank 9s pays for itself.
Innovia Automatic Countertop Paper Towel Dispenser
I don’t know about you, but when I am up to my elbows cooking or doing crafts, I often am faced with the dilemma of getting a paper towel, dirty hands and all. It makes me cringe to think about contaminating the paper towels. The Innovia automatic paper towel dispenser solves this issue. The best part? You don’t have to buy specific towels to fit.
Micro Cotton’s Noble Excellence Elite Towels
Ok, let’s get honest here. How many of you are still using towels that are older than you would like to admit. I know I am. Towels just never make the top of my shopping list, I always seem to find other ways to put my money to use. These towels are so very soft and plush and will make you wonder why you didn’t get them sooner. You can find them at Dillard’s.
Melitta 1-Cup Pour-Over Coffeemaker
My husband and I are coffee snobs, we aren’t exactly proud of it, but it is what it is. Each time my husband orders brewed coffee from Starbucks he always orders it as a pour over, and they always roll their eyes at him. This pour over coffeemaker solves that problem, and bonus, you can get your favorite coffee from the comfort of your own home. Combined with the cone filters and your favorite coffee, you will be in business and safe from eye rolls.
Prep U Products
Let’s be real for a moment shall we? Getting my preteen boys to worry or care about how they smell is…a challenge. I can’t even tell you how many times a day that I ask them, he did you put on deodorant? The products from Prep U are designed for teen boys and are perfect for stockings.
Items from Dick’s Sporting Goods
Chances are if you have or know a middle school/high school girl, you have heard of hydro flask. Which is a brand of metal water bottle that has made huge waves lately and is the ‘it’ item. Don’t worry, you can get it at Dick’s Sporting Goods, and bonus it really does keep your water incredibly cold. Make sure you pick up some cool stickers to go on the hydro flask.
DSG Line of clothing
If your kids are anything like mine, athletic apparel is firmly at the top of their list. With 2 boys ages 8 and 10, it is all I can do to get them to wear anything other than athletic gear. My youngest, found his place in football this year and my oldest is an elite runner, while their sports are so very different, the one thing they can agree on (and can hardly get them out of) is a good hoodie.
Nike Dry Fit Head Tie
Perfect for under the football helmet, Nike makes a dry fit head tie that keeps sweat at bay without being bulky. My youngest has been asking for one for quite some time now, and this will make for a perfect stocking stuffer.
If you have a runner in your life, this running belt is very functional and believe it or not, it holds a lot, even a bulky cellphone and doesn’t ‘flop’ around while you are running. This is perfect for people who do longer runs and don’t want to leave things behind.
