Gifts For The Home {Giveaway}

(Disclosure: Samples were received for consideration but all thoughts are my own. This post contains affiliate links.)

A few years ago I wrote about how one of the top gifts on my Christmas wish list was a stock pot to make soup. I realized at this point that I had matured because I was asking for something practical that I needed for our home. Ever since then I’ve had gifts for our home on every wish list I’ve written. This year my top wishes were a KitchenAid mixer, an Instant Pot and the Nutri Ninja Nutri Bowl DUO along with some photography related items for the blog. I thought I’d put together a list of great gifts you can add to your wish list or that family and friends may like to receive.

Ninja Coffee Bar

Raise your hand if you spend way too much on coffee every week. {Raises hand…} You’ll want to add the Ninja Coffee Bar to your wish list. Get a better than coffee house experience, at home, without pods. This system includes an integrated milk frother and makes 6 brew sizes and 5 brew types – including the Ninja exclusive Café Forte, which amplifies the natural subtle flavors of your favorite coffee. While my Starbucks runs won’t stop, this is the perfect addition to my kitchen so that I can visit the coffee shop less often and save some money as we head into the new year. I’ll be sharing coffee drink recipes on the blog soon!

Honeycomb Speaker

Have someone in your life that loves music? They will enjoy using this new compact, wireless Bluetooth® portable speakers by Honeycomb Sound LLC. The unique honeycomb cell design easily fills a large room or outdoor space with quality sound proving that big sound and deep bass aren’t only produced from the bulky, wired stereo system of the past. I love that this speaker has a long-lasting battery which allows for portability. This speaker also has some great additional features like a USB flash drive input and a power bank function that allows for the charging of mobile phones.

Smart home tech is all the rage nowadays and these Switchmate light controls are the perfect gift for someone looking to automate their home. It also makes a great gift for someone with mobility issues who has a hard time getting around because they don’t have to get up from the couch or bed to turn the lights on or off. What I love about these are that you get the security and convenience of smart home lighting without the hassle of complicated and sometimes expensive rewiring and installation. Switchmate magnetically attaches to any standard light switch immediately and syncs with the Switchmate companion app which is used to control the switch. There is also a cool “welcome” feature that senses the sync’d phone via Bluetooth and turns on the lights so they come on when you enter the home.

Shark Rocket Complete with DuoClean Technology

Shark’s newest upright vacuum is the perfect gift for anyone who is sick of using a vacuum that doesn’t clean like it should. With it’s dual brushroll system, it easily transitions from floors to carpet, picking up everything from sand and dirt to cheerios. On carpets, the self-cleaning soft velvet brush roll pulls in large particles, while the deep-cleaning bristle brush works at removing embedded fine dirt. On floors, large and small particles, as well as stuck-on dust, are pulled in by the velvet brush roll and then drawn into the high velocity suction channel by the bristle brush roll, leaving nothing but clean floors behind. What I love most about this vacuum is it’s versatility because, not only is it an upright vacuum, it can also be converted into a handheld to clean narrow, hard to reach places.

Magic Chef’s Red Portable Ice Maker

If you entertain a lot, this portable ice maker would be perfect for you! The ice maker products up to 27 pounds of ice per day so you don’t need to worry about running out mid-celebration. For any holiday events you are hosting, the red color one would add a pop of color to the party. The ice maker includes a removable ice basket and ice scooper for simple, convenient serving as well as a see-through window to view the ice level at any time.

The new system offers more control to customize the way you clean finished wood and hard floor surfaces, with up to three settings of electronic steam control- from a light dusting to deep cleaning, to steam blasting- cleaning the dirt you can see and sanitizing the floors when and where you need it.
