Top Gift Ideas that make life easier

idea; home show

Each week leading up to Christmas I will share top gift ideas that make life easier to help you give amazing presents at Christmas.

This week I have chosen great ideas to help anyone that has reduced manual dexterity.

Christmas is just around the corner and I’m sure everyone is starting to think about what to get their friends and family to make it a special day. When I heard that the Ideal Home Show at Christmas was coming to Manchester I got excited as I know it’s a fantastic event which really is a great shopping experience.

So last weekend I donned my scarf and gloves and took a trip to Event City in Manchester to attend the event. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Event City it’s located next to The Trafford Centre in Manchester which means there’s lots of parking for those thinking of attending future events. I myself will be back there next week for Kidz up North. When I arrived I was greeted by an oversized snowman and fake snow blowing everywhere which really got me in the Christmas mood. The one thing I found annoying was that it was £5 for a program guide which after paying £15 to get in, you would expect to get one for free. None the less, once inside it felt magical with Christmas trees covered in lights and people walking about dressed in costumes.

There was an array of fantastic Christmas ideals from over 300 exhibitors so I thought I’d share with you my top three products which I found really useful!

360 Spinning Mop

360 spinning mop

The demonstrator informed me that the mop had over 800 strands of nano fibre to help absorb spillages but the really useful thing was it’s 360 spinning mechanism which takes all the strain away when rinsing the mop! He simply placed the mop in the bucket and plunged it down which span all the excess water into the bucket. This would be great for someone with limited dexterity. It’s priced at £29.99 and can be purchased from Supreme Pitch

Click Heat

I found this pocket and hand warmer extremely useful for the cold nights ahead and can be used pretty much anywhere. Its simplistic design means you basically click it and go! It’s priced at £12.99 and can be purchased from Click Heat

The Whizzy Whisk

Whizzy Whisk

This was by far the best gadget which I saw at the Ideal Home Show at Christmas. By pushing the handle up and down it rotates the whisk taking all the strain out of whisking.

Again this would be really useful for someone with limited dexterity as it does all the work for you. It’s priced at £10 and can be purchased from LCC TV Products

Hopefully we’ll be seeing these fantastic products in the RUS shop soon!
