After years of struggling to come up with fun, entertaining, and innovative gifts I started sourcing great gift ideas straight from Shark Tank. A couple years ago my family discovered how much fun we could have watching Shark Tank together. We were holed up in a hotel room recovering from a long, rainy day driving ‘over the river and through the woods' on the way to our Thanksgiving destination. I grabbed the remote looking for a distraction and a Shark Tank rerun started. The whole family (age seven on up) was rapt as we evaluated the products, the pitches, and the decisions made by the Sharks. Then we started Googling to see what had become of the products and services featured on the show. So many ideas had us thinking “Wow, I should have thought of that.” Later, as I started trying to come up with ideas to stuff into stockings, place under Christmas trees, and of course for the dreaded Secret Santa office gift exchange I started thinking about all the great ‘I wish I had thought of that' ideas we've seen on Shark Tank. We've become regular Shark Tank watchers and I've been adding new ideas to my list ever since. Below is a roundup of the greatest hits from my Shark Tank gift list.
See life through the eye's of Santa's very own reindeer, as an Elf, or even as Santa himself! These sunglasses transform you into the star of the show, whether it's a themed party and pop culture costume or your favorite character. As seen on Shark Tank, these sunglasses are comfortable and perfect for adults and children all of all ages. They transformed my shy nephew into the life of the party, I love having them around for the periodic dress up days at school and camp. With so many fun themes to select from they make regular appearances as stocking stuffers year in and year out.
The first time we gave the IllumiBowl it basically as a joke. My brother had walked into a wall in the dark leaving the bathroom so this seemed like the perfect way to tease him. IllumiBowl is a motion-activated night light for your toilet. It fits on the rim of any toilet & turns itself on & illuminates the inner bowl any time you walk into the bathroom at night. No more blinding midnight lights; stumbling around in the dark; falling in the toilet. He and his girlfriend LOVED it. Ever since its one of my go to gifts for White Elephant parties.
Here's why you need Phonesoap 3.0: All the germs you touch you transfer to our phone. While you wash our hands regularly, you almost never wash your phone. On average, a cell phone is 18x dirtier than a public restroom. Phonesoap is proud to be the first and only cell phone charger that disinfects your phone while also charging your phone. Now you can augment your daily charge with a sanitizing process. With Phonesoap, a charged phone is a cleaned phone. When you close the lid on your Phonesoap, the uv lights start automatically and run for roughly 10 minutes
It drives me insane that our luggage basically takes up a whole closet in our home. Biaggi's patentented bags amazingly transform from an easy to store small pouch into a full sized upright. When folded, the Zipsak can be stored in a drawer, on a shelf, or under a bed, so your luggage won't use up valuable space in your home. We are gradually transitioning over to these bags as our others die and getting precious storage space back.
