A house needs to be 3 things: cozy, home-y & well equipped! To give you some last minute Christmas gift ideas, I pulled together the top 3 electronic gifts that I know I cannot live without! Therefore, I know for a fact that whoever receives these gifts will love them beyond belief. Ready?! Let’s go: in no particular order:
1-Nespresso Vertuo Coffe Machine: Coffee is life, well, for me anyway! It’s not only about the fact that it keep me running all day long, but it’s also about the taste & the smell. In other words, drinking coffee is an experience that I cherish every morning. As you probably already know, I’m not a fan of lattes. I like my coffee black, no sugar. Naturally, the VertuoLine is perfect for me! It uses large capsules that contain a lot more coffee than the expresso/latte capsules – in coffee addict terms, this meant heaven. Each capsule fills up an entire coffee cup! It’s freshly brewed, strong & creamy! For Christmas, Nespresso came out with a bunch of limited edition flavours such as peppermint, cherry & banana. The capsules are perfectly dressed up for the holidays with fun holiday colors such as white, red & green. And the taste? Devine! I am a big fan of banana, so that is by far my favourite. I think that anyone who gets this machine for Christmas will love you to the moon and back! Retail price: $249.
2- Sodastream FIZZI: I’m a huge fan of sparkling water and I find myself often dragging cases of bottles from the grocery store weekly. So, when I heard about this handy little device, I was overjoyed! Fizzi is SodaStream’s newest sparkling water maker. All you need to do is fill out the bottle with regular water, press on the grey button on top to dispense the amount of carbon desired. And just like that, you have a bottle of sparkling water! I swear, my husband and I are obsessed with it; we use it every.single.day! It’s honestly one of the best electronic gifts out there. The design of this product is slick and modern, not to mention that it’s small & light, therefore fits in any kitchen. The machine comes in white (that is the color I own), black & red (perfect color for the holidays). Each kit includes: Fizzi Sparkling water maker, 60L cylinder, 1L reusable BPA-free carbonating bottle. You can purchase it in all major retail stores (Walmart, Canadian Tire, Home Outfitters, Hudson’s Bay, Bed Bath & Beyond), or online (here). Each carbonator can produce up to 60 bottles of sparkling water. When your carbonator runs out of gas, you can simply bring the empty one to any participating retail location (as listed previously). The retailer will exchange your empty carbonator for a full one on the spot, for the price of the gas contents only. Easy, peasy! The FIZZI retails for $119 and it’s currently on sale for $99.99.
3-Metà e Metà (Half & Half)™ Curl Secret™: Last, but not least, the hair magician’s wand. I must confess, I am a terrible hairdresser, especially when it comes to my own hair. Partially b/c of talent and partially b/c of laziness. Since my hair is straight, I often just wash it, air dry it and go! So, it sort of became a habit of not taking care of my hair. So, this tool to me is pure gold. With an easy press of a button, you can create soft loose waves or super straight hair using the same device (mind blown)! Honestly, super easy and quick to produce beautiful curls while let’s face it, having fun with the tool without burning your hair (or a finger, seriously, I must be the clumsiest person on the planet). Don’t worry, your hair will not get sucked in and burnt; the technology on this product is amazing. Check out this video showing you step by step how it works to curl the hair with the tool (Click Here) or to strengthen (Click Here). Retails for around $115 and you can find it at all the main retailers: Walmart, Canadian Tire, Costco, Home Outfitters, Hudson’s Bay, Jean Coutu, Shoppers Drug Mart, Rona, Sears, Bed Bath & Beyond, as well as on Amazon (here).
