Live Life Better. These Gift Ideas For The Home Will Be A Holiday Hit!
The best gifts are the ones that are unexpected. They bring not just pleasure, but ways to make life easier and more fun. Here are some gift ideas for the home that will be a hit with everyone.
Charge, Relax, Rise!
If you think you don’t need another clock radio you’ve not met the iHome Qi Wireless Fast Charging Color Changing Bluetooth Dual Alarm Clock iBTW28I.
This beautiful alarm clock radio will charge your phone with a fast-charging flat QI charger at the top of the clock.
There’s also a USB charging port charge USB devices such as cell phones, iOS devices, PDA’s, etc. Charge both iPhones and Androids and wake up to fully charged phones.
Color Your World:
This high tech Bluetooth alarm clock has 7 color-changing modes and 8 “wake to” modes. The base changes color and wakes you to light, music, and more.
Maybe you don’t really need a light show, but personally, I have a thing for color-changing devices, and iHome features plenty of color-changing products.
This unit not only enhances your home with programmable dimming color and color-fading one into the other, but it also has a night mode. Of course, you can also turn the lights off if you like your room totally dark.
And that’s not all! There is voice control for SIRI or Google Assistant. I actually called a friend using this feature.-freaky, fun, convenient.
The sound quality was excellent and the speakerphone is super easy to use!
This gift idea for the home is something special, and for $80 — it’s a steal!
If there is a downside it’s that (I have to be honest) the directions were not always easy to understand but customer service was very helpful when I had an issue with the dual alarms.

Whistling While it Works!
A whistling teakettle is one of those items you might find in most homes. However, the Rachael Ray 1.5-Qt Enamel on Steel Teakettle is a step above.
The enamel on this pretty teakettle is shimmery and beautiful. Our sample was an eye-catching, candy apple red. However, you can also get it in a light blue shimmer and gray shimmer, to suit your decor.
Not all teakettles are good quality, but this one features durable enamel on a steel construction with avstainless steel cap.
I’ve burned my hands on more than one teakettle trying to pull the top off, but this one has a natural rubberwood handle and knob that stays cool. In addition, the flip-top spout lever means you won’t get steam in your face.
Of course, it’s a whistling pot, so it will whistle an let you know that the water is boiling. The interior features a convenient max-fill mark.
A thing of beauty is a joy forever, so they say. I can’t claim that the Rachael Ray Whistling Teakettle will be a family heirloom, but maybe, it will. It’s a great gift (add some tea or hot chocolate mix) at just $40. We found it on Amazon but you can get more information on the Rachael Ray website
I’m Such a Fan of this Fan (here’s why):
Too hot to sleep? Noisy Neighbors? The iHome 2-in-1 Fan + Sound Machine iF100.is a true godsend for anyone who has trouble sleeping, or relaxing.
This ingenious collapsible dual-speed fan with a pivoting head emits a cooling breeze and a soft white noise.
But it also incorporates a sound machine with 12 different sounds to help you calm and sleep: (meditation, dream, drive, zen, ocean, storm, nature, river, air, focus, quiet, peace).
Both the fan and the sound machine can operate up to 8 hours, with programmable times of 10 minutes, and hour, 2 hours, up to 8 hours.
The reason I love iHome devices so much is that they are so cleverly designed to do more than you ever thought possible.
You can program this fan/sound machine to work with any SmartPlug, but it is powered by a normal power cord (100-240V – included).
Furthermore, you can use it flat, or upright. It’s small enough for travel, too. The only thing I wish it had was a travel bag.
My husband cannot stand any noise when he is trying to sleep so he was the perfect test subject. We have had healthier, happier days and more relaxing nights now, thanks to iHome 2-in-1 Fan + Sound Machine. For more information visit the iHome Website.
Mirror Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest and the most tech-savvy of them all. YOU are (or will be) with the brand new iHome Lux II Vanity Mirror With Bluetooth Speaker iCVBT8 ($150).
A while back I reviewed another IHome vanity mirror that we loved (read our 2016 review of the ICVTB7 iHome Vanity mirror). That mirror was the first we’d seen that let you listen to music, charge your phone (and talk on it too, via hands-free speakerphone)
But now it’s 2019 and the Lux II Vanity Mirror with Bluetooth Speaker from iHome is an exciting and luxurious choice for a makeup mirror with a built-in speaker.
The double-sided round mirror has built-in illumination (low, medium and high). Both the regular mirror and the 7x magnifying mirror are clear and sharp.
Take Me With You:
The 2.93 lb. mirror has another benefit that you’ll love if you want to move it around — it’s totally portable and rechargeable with a chargeable internal battery.
Take it with you into the kitchen while you’re making coffee and rushing to put on your makeup. Or, just plug it into an outlet with the included via universal 100–240V AC adapter. A battery-saving timer circuit turns off light after 15 minutes
The mirror has a speakerphone and a USB port, so you can charge your phone (with a 1 amp USB port which worked fine with our new model android phone), and still chat at the same time.
The Bluetooth paired in seconds. The sound quality is fine for listening to music or phone calls. For anyone who loves beauty tools, or just wants to get a clear view of what’s in the mirror, this iHome makes one of our favorite gift ideas for the home for holiday 2019.
The Lux II Vanity Mirror with Bluetooth Speaker definitely makes life easier and more fun! For more information visit the iHome Website.
