Gadgets and Gizmos to Make Your Home Special
You’re spending more time than ever at home due to quarantine and the CDC’s continued recommendation to avoid gatherings. It only makes sense that due to this significantly increased time inside, you’d want to use some of that free time to focus on improving your home. If your home doesn’t make you feel like a Disney prince or princess with “gadgets and gizmos aplenty,” then you might need to consider adding to your sparse collection. From time-saving tools to products that are just plain fun here are a few items that will make your home feel special.
Pet hair? Don’t care.
If you’re cohabitating with a furry friend, you’re probably really happy to have the company and the entertainment during this time. That being said, you might also be losing your mind watching their little tumbleweeds of fur blowing around and settling into every corner of your home. If you’re tired of running your vacuum cleaner three times a day in order to keep yourself from googling how much a hairless cat costs, take a look at a couple of different robot vacuums online. There are a lot of different brands, so make sure you find what fits your price range and lifestyle needs. You should take into consideration whether the model you’re looking at has side arms to sweep up all of the fuzz balls in the room corners and the size of the dust and dirt collector. You and your furry best friend can kick up your heels, watch a little Netflix, and let someone else clean the house for once.
Harness your inner Top Chef.
As you’ve been binging the newest season of Top Chef—and maybe even re-watching your old favorite seasons—you may have noticed that your pots and pans aren’t quite up to par. You don’t need to be a professional chef to deserve professional-grade cooking ware. If you inherited your parent’s old kitchen set, it probably doesn’t match your personality or even your cooking needs. Upgrade what’s in your cabinets and on your stove with a fifteen-piece set of Berlinger Haus cookware. You can get pots and pans that match your kitchen with the Rose Gold or Moonlight Collections. These pots and pans are affordable, stylish, innovative, and most importantly, easy to clean. You’ll be making beautiful gourmet dishes like Gregory Gourdet in no time.
Take self-care to the next level.
Have you ever been so excited about purchasing a bath bomb from a name brand place, like LUSH, only to have your overflow drain ruin your bubbly bliss by sucking it all away? Never let this happen again with a bathtub overflow drain cover. All you have to do is adhere it around the overflow drain with suction cups, and voilà! You’ve got a bath that will actually cover your whole body. You don’t even need to worry about getting too relaxed and forgetting to shut off the water. There’s an opening at the very top of the cover that will allow water to run into the overflow drain if there’s actually a risk of the tub overflowing. Scrub-a dub-dub, it’s time to really unwind in your tub!
The best hire you’ll ever make.
Okay, this isn’t really a “hire” per se and it’s not really a “someone,” but this device can help you keep track of things when the days of quarantine are all melting together. With an Amazon Alexa, it’s kind of like having a personal assistant in your house. You can ask her to remind you of important things, like calling your mom on Zoom. She can play your favorite music, answer questions, tell you jokes, inform you about the weather, and even play Jeopardy. She just might be the closest you can get to a friend during recommended isolation.
