(1) Toothbrush Sanitizer
Once described as "must-have gift" by Ellen Degeneres, the Toothbrush Sanitizer is more important than most families give it credit for.
Unlike what you think, your toothbrush is probably the dirtiest tool in your washroom – a bit ironic when its sole purpose is actually clean your teeth. You can find personal Toothbrush Sanitizers that fit one brush, but I would recommend going for a Family-size one that fits four toothbrushes – electric or non-electric. I find these are much more stylish and sleek looking, and given their design, its exterior actually emits a blue UV lights that accentuate the cleaning process.
A must have for any health-conscious family.
(2) Cabledrop Clips
Here, I must say that a picture is really worth a thousand words – you have to see an image of these CableDrop Clips to fall in love with them.
So you have a workstation with tens of wires and cables spiraling in all directions. Your cables do not really enjoy falling off your desk and having you search them every way but they can not help it – they are loose and clumsy by nature. Solution? Hold them in one place with Cabledrop clips, and reel them into your laptop, PC or cell phone when needed.
The CableDrop clips are small and round, and come in two different sets of colors – muted and bright. The have an adhesive surface on the bottom that allows them to get attached to practically anything – the side of your desk, on top of your desk or sideways on your wall. These clips gently grap your cord or cable so they do not fall of your desk each time you unplug them.
(3) LED Showerheads
My "cool things to buy" list is incomplete without mentioning this super-sensational LED Showerheads. Yes – you have never even remotely heard of them, but as well as being really cool, they can drastically improve the decor of your washroom, and of course, the showering experience. As the name suggests, these LED Showerheads emit various shades of red, blue and green light as the water pours out of the showerhead on to you. And not only that – the color is actually based on the temperature of the water; how cool is that?
Perfect to install in your child's washroom, they will give your children another reason (or sooner, a reason) to take a shower. If they do not enjoy the cleaning process, they will enjoy the refreshing experience of standing under an illuminated water stream.
The LED Showerheads also come with a remote control that allows you to change its color, or switch it back to "no-color" mode, although I personally do not find a genuine use for it. The only remote controls I find useful are those for T.Vs' but hey, that's just me.
(4) Laser Volume-Distance Measurer
Have a husband, a son, a father, or otherwise a member of the "male" species that consider themselves a 'Handyman'?
Well, here's a little something that will upgrade their equipments if they are still living in the "dark ages" with old-style scissors and measuring tapes. Here's something you can invest in for your house that will literally eliminate the use of measuring tapes.
The Laser Volume-Distance Measurer is a cool gadget that emits a laser and measures the distance between the device, and the object that you are pointing at. By taking measurements of the length and width, the device will also calculate the area and Volume for you. A perfect tool to add to a household's toolbox.
(5) Mobile Phone Holder
Let's be honest, a cell phone charging somewhere on top of a table or on the ground is not the prettiest sight your house has to offer. I mean, with lengths of cords and wires flying left and right, creating ugly loops along the way, and hanging off from your table or creating a scene on the floor is just not attractive. And If you are the least bit "sight-conscious" as I am, such disorganization is sure to give you the chills.
A mobile phone holder creates a little platform, or a "bed", for your cellphone to rest on, hangs down from your electrical socket, and allows you to wrap around the wires of the charger neatly around its neck to provide a clean, charging experience for your cell phone. Buy one for each cellphone, and feel free to buy different colors to match the color scheme of your room (they come in 5 colors). Happy charging!
