1. Keep Your Glasses Crystal Clear With Carbon Technology
Peeps is a brand-new product that is already very popular among those who wear glasses. The Peeps eyeglass cleaner is designed to clean eyeglasses, sunglasses, and reading glasses very effectively. They use a unique and invisible carbon cleaning formula that will remove any dust, oily fingerprints, and dirt that comes from the face.
Peeps use a solution that is the safest and most tested cleaning technology in the world. In fact, the technology is literally out of this world – being the only cleaners on the Space Station used for lens cleaning by NASA. Peeps is super easy to use, compact and will never expire, and you’ll be able to clean your glasses 500 times. It’s also perfectly portable, and measures 4x1x1 inches, and comes in your choice of 7 different colors.
2. Prevent $1,000s In Costly Car Repairs And Never Let Mechanics Rip You Off Again
If you’ve ever gone to your local auto repair shop for an oil change but instead left with a huge bill for random car parts, this is the device for you.
Unfortunately, mechanics know taking advantage of people is easy, given their lack of knowledge about car maintenance needs. But, by using Fixd, you’ll never pay more for car maintenance than you need to again.
This device which you can carry with you in your car is able to tell you exactly what’s wrong with it. If your car was built after 1996, then Fixd can instantly diagnose any problems it might have. This means the next time your “Check Engine Light” happens to come on, you’ll know exactly what the issue is and the mechanics won’t be able to lie to you!
It’s as easy as connecting the Fixd device to the app and then monitoring your car. In United States alone, Fixd has already made over $50,000,000 in sales this year, so we had to make sure it made our list.
3. Never Lose Anything With This Tiny Device
You will never lose anything again. There is a reason these coin-sized saviors are selling out. They let you track anything! TrackR is so small you can attach it to any item you never want to lose. And TrackR will track it! Never worry about where you put down your keys or parked your car again. TrackRs even have a sticky back so you can attach and hide them.
People have used their TrackR Bravos with wallets, purses, luggage, keys, bikes, cars, backpacks, pets, and even kids!
What if you can’t find your phone? Use TrackR to ring it, even if it’s on silent mode, and you’ll find your phone fast. TrackR helps you keep your stuff…especially if you’re a chronic (keys/wallet/bike/car/bag) misplacer. This is a gotta have device and a gift everybody will love.
4. Spy Camera For Your Home – Keep an Eye On Your Pets or Kids!
This high-quality full HD 1080p USB security camera also doubles as a smartphone charger and it’s getting a lot of attention on the web right now. It’s the perfect gift idea for someone with young kids or pets who needs to keep an eye on them while they’re out of the house. Think of it as a nanny cam that you can also use to charge your phone!
In fact, this disguised HD video camera has been used to apprehend criminals in several home invasion cases. The Snap Smart Cam will automatically start recording and when it reaches full memory capacity, it will automatically overwrite the earliest videos recorded. Also, with cell phone wall chargers being everywhere these days, this item is sure to blend into any environment.
Think it needs batteries? Nope, not at all, no batteries required, so you can be sure that you’re recording at all times as long as it’s plugged in. Perhaps we should be worried about this product though as we really don’t want to be spied on wherever we are!
5. The Most Practical Way To Carry Your Keys
Sure, you’ve already got a keychain, but it’s got nothing on the futuristic KeySmart. If you carry a lot of keys, you will likely agree that your keychain is bulky, inconvenient and has that tell-tale jingle. Not to mention, they won’t protect your pockets from getting shredded to bits by your expansive key collection.
This is where the KeySmart is different, it’s a handy organizer that offers a simple, yet streamline solution. The KeySmart can hold up to 14 keys in a stream-line metal holder, that is both fashionable and lasting. Smaller than a packet of gum, the key holder is made from two 3mm thick plates made from aircraft grade aluminum.
You won’t have to worry about the contents of your pockets getting scratched. For instance, you can rest assured your keys won’t scratch your phone. And as an added bonus, you’ll be able to walk around without being heard a mile away due to your keys jingling and jangling about – as they would on a conventional keychain. And it even features a built-in clip that will let you attach it to any pocket, belt, or bag. If you want to make the key chain your own, you can. Simply add cool accessories like a USB drive or a bottle opener to it on the KeySmart website. Over 2,000,000 have been sold in 173 countries.
6. Trusty Charge — Portable Charger/Radio
After the hurricanes, another item was in high demand. The Trusty Charge . Can you imagine being cut off without phone, radio, electricity, or information? It is terrifying, and even scarier if you know a loved one is in that situation. To have a device that can keep you connected and keep you informed even without electricity in this type of situation is priceless. Priceless. The Trusty Charge offers:
- Radio to hear news and directions
- Ports to charge phones and devices
- Solar charging power
- Hand cranking power
- Water resistant design
7. TV Fox Indoor HD Antenna — Free TV
Did you know you can pick up network TV for free? You just need the right antenna — TV Fox Indoor HD Antenna . No subscription fee. No installation fee. No satellite dish. Attach the sleek antenna to your wall or hide it under a cabinet or behind a picture — as long as there is a good signal — and enjoy watching leading networks, including 90 of the top 100 programs. All for free! (Yes, it’s legal.) You also get free DVR capability with an on-screen channel guide. What will you use the extra money for when you cancel your monthly cable or satellite TV subscriptions and get SkyWire? You can think about that while you enjoy free TV.
8. Transform Any Toilet Into a Motion-Activated Nightlight
GlowBowl is the toilet light that you never knew you needed. It will change your life if you frequently wake up in the night to use the toilet. It’s a motion-activated light that makes your toilet glow at night, instead of hurting your eyes with the glare from the bright bathroom light. It’s a super simple design that turns on when you enter the bathroom and shuts off once you leave.
You’ll have the choice of 7 different colored LED lights so you can set the light and mood that suits you best. It’s also water-resistant, and battery powered using 3 AAA batteries which last a long time. Simply fit this light to your toilet, and watch your bathroom twinkle.
9. Have All Of Your Families Photos and Home Movies Converted Into a Digital Format
iMemories is a photo scanning service that will transform your old photos and home movies into digital copies that you can watch time and time again on new technology. While online streaming services and the invention of DVDs have made tapes obsolete, you can now send off your old analog videos to be made into digital files that are perfect for viewing and sharing online.
This service will also scan physical photographs and upload them onto a DVD, Blu-ray disc or a portable 500GB USB hard drive. And they will even make a video montage so you can view all of your memories in one place, right from your computer, tablet or phone. iMemories also gives you access to permanent digital back-up, so if you lose one of your devices your photos and videos are already backed-up. A great Christmas gift could be giving a new life to your parents 80’s wedding video – that’s sure to go viral on social media!
10. Protect Yourself With a Personal Safety Alarm
Inspired by the Military, the TigressAlert uses ear piercing sound (over 130 decibels) to deter bad guys and is quickly becoming one of the most sought after safety devices in America.
It should soon be on every kid’s keychains or backpacks, but it should also be carried by every woman.
But the TigressAlert isn’t just to help protect you, your kids and your grandkids from an attack. It can also be used as a life saving device to call for help if you’re having a heart attack or have some other health condition that can prevent you from yelling for help.
Don’t let your worst nightmare become your reality. Safety doesn’t happen by accident. Purchase a personal alarm for yourself, for your child, or for a loved one. The TigressAlert is particularly suitable for teenagers, parents, night owls, delivery route employees, business owners, and college students, or the elderly who may need to call for help. The keychain design is perfect for use with house keys or car keys. It can also be attached to a backpack or a purse.
