If you're stressed out with life in general these days with the kids at home more than usual and you literally don't have the time to go out and buy actual gifts this year... Christmas is right around the corner and here's a few things from the 'Holiday Gift Guide' that could help you in more ways than one...
From Tech Republic:
Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, parents are juggling their childrens' distance learning and working from home. Balancing the roles of teacher, proctor, babysitter, IT tech, and working professional is a daunting undertaking. To get through this stressful time, we've curated the bestgifts, from time-management tools to self-care necessities to help the most stressed out parent relax, recalibrate, and get stuff done.
HoMedics white noise sound machine
During the most grueling days, a portable sound machine can block distractions to help you or your child better focus. The HomMedics white noise sound machine features four sounds: White noise, Everglades, ocean waves, and gentle rain. It also includes a 15-, 30-, and 45-minute auto-off timer, and its small size makes it easy to move from room to room.
Uber Appliance mini fridge
A sure-fire way to curb the common refrain of, "Can you get me a drink?" is the Uber Appliance mini fridge. It's small enough to fit in home offices or study workplaces, and it's portable. The mini fridge holds up to six cans, four bottles of water, and countless juice boxes. It also features a low-noise fan, removable shelf and self-locking door handles--perfect for when you want to swipe out the kid drinks with adult beverages.
KeeQii visual timer
Teach your kids the meaning of "five more minutes" with a visual timer from KeeQii. The timer features easy-to-read numbers and counts down to 60 minutes. To use, kids (or parents) just turn the dial to the desired time, and the colored disk decreases as time progresses. Another bonus: No loud ticking sound.
If you're in the market for any of these appliances to help you get through life, go for it this Christmas! These items might just save some stress and frustration. Definitely worth checking out especially if it's for yourself and it'll save you some time from shopping at the store!
