pillow1

I have always struggled with back pain so on the top of my holiday gift list is this great pillow from Spine Align.  Specially designed by a sport chiropractor the Spine Align pillow is designed to support your spine an provide the best night sleep.

pillow2

This pillow is truly unique in that it’s designed with two outer chambers that are used for side sleeping and a middle chamber for back sleeping.  You will no longer need multiple pillows for back and side sleeping positions! Dr. Loth’s SpineAlign Pillow was specifically designed with a proprietary blend of shredded internal fill and strategically placed zippers on the back of the pillow which allow you to add or remove fill to customize it to your specific fit, (fully adjustable)!

pillow3

The outside of the pillow is comprised of a soft Tencel blended fabric with strips of mesh built in the sides of the pillow for better breathability and comfort as you sleep. This pillow is super comfortable to sleep on.  I am one of those people who usually has about four pillows I sleep with on a regular basis, I have now replaced my mountain of pillows with the Spine Align and I love it.

Spine Align makes a great gift for the holidays.  If you have a friend or family member on your list this holiday season who has neck or back problems this is a great gift idea for them.

Know Yourself Box Subscription Makes a Great Holiday Gift This Holiday Season

pic1

As I have mentioned here on the blog several times my seven year old is very interested in science and STEAM related projects and toys.  So I recently found this great company called Know Yourself that was perfect for her.  Know Yourself is a great box subscription that features fun activities and STEAM-based projects focused all around biology, history and civic engagement.  Each box features fun and exciting STEM focused projects and activities along with workbooks and other really fun cool items.  We did a quick video of the box we received from Know Yourself (please note that our box differed from a typical box subscription box because it is a media box for review purposes). Please refer to the list below of what is included in a typical box.

 

Know Yourself is based on a comic book series, the boxes follow along with this series and features fun interactive workbooks, activities, and more that teach all about the body.  It’s a great way to introduce biology and fun educational learning.

Target Grade Range / Suggested Age:  Grades range: 2nd Grade–7th Grade, Suggested age is 7–12. My daughter is 7 and really enjoyed the series.  For younger children it is fun to do the projects along side them and assist in steps they might find difficult.

Contents:  All the Adventure 1 activities and components come inside our signature Historator, a uniquely designed time traveling machine. Included in the box are the following:
1. Time Skaters Comic, Issue 1: “Fangs of Philosophy” (40 pages)
2. Adventure Guide Booklet (28 pages)
3. Sticker Sheet
4. World Map Poster
5. Vial
6. Egg Shaker
7. Secret Ultra-Violet Writing Pens Fact Sheet_ADV-1 1
8. Notebook
9. Putty
10. Magnifying Glass

pic2

They also have a four piece workbook series called Dr. Bonyfide that can be purchased and are separate from the box subscription series.  These feature some fun interactive pages that are full of educational information and activities.  Each one focuses on a different bone series like the hands, feet, brain, and torso.  It’s a great way to introduce biology and anatomy.

pic3

Know Yourself makes a great gift idea for the holidays.  If you have a kiddo that is really interested in science and biology this is perfect for them. Box Subscriptions are great because they get a new box every month with all new items.  Know Yourself is great because you are gifting educational fun.

You can learn more on the Know Yourself Website.

Currently our readers are getting a great special offer.  If you order using the code “PARENTSB” you will receive a Adventure #1 and a FREE Dr. Bonyfide workbook for $19.95.

GoWise USA Has Great Gifts this Holiday Season

airfryer1

As many of you know we are trying to eat healthier and make better choices.  One of my favorite new products is the 10.5 QT Air Fryer from GoWise USA.  This thing is amazing.  You can air fry foods, they taste just like you fried them in a fryer.  I was actually shocked to be honest with you, I’m pretty picky when it comes to food but this thing is amazing.  The food quality is amazing and comes out perfect every single time.  You can cook just about anything in it as well.  They have a great accessory set that makes it easy to cook anything in the air fryer.

The technology is really cool.  Features at fan in the top of the fryer that conducts heat and cooks the food.  Leave the food crispy like your fried it in a fryer but not greasy or soggy.  No oil needed at all, just uses air to cook.  So much healthier for you then cooking wih grease and oils.  It’s amazing.

airfryer5

The controls are really great and easy to use.  You can bake, defrost, roll, stir-fry, fry, roast, it really does it all.  There is a great instructional booklet included that is easy to follow.  You can have perfectly fried foods in the matter of minutes that are crispy and delicious.

Using the accessory set you can cook anything in fryer. They include a rotisserie stake that makes perfect meats like chicken.  The rack is great for frying meats like steak.  They include a Baking Cage so you can even bake things like cakes.  There is even a steak cage so you can turn the meat while it is cooking.  This thing does it all.  You won’t even need any oven anymore!

The GoWise USA air fryer is the perfect holiday gift.  If you have any cooks or bakers on your list this thing is amazing.  It’s a great gift for anyone really, great house warming gift as well.  Anyone who likes yummy foods that are healthier for you and taste amazing needs this gift.
