Today was predicted to be one of the top ten busiest holiday shopping days of the year. If you’ve run out of gift ideas, here are some great buys for that on-the-go person in your life. I went shopping yesterday at the Sports Basement in San Ramon and was excited to find these 10 novel and practical products — all for $30 and less!
1. Double Layer Home Socks by Woolrich- $15
Love, love, love these cushy socks! They’ll keep your feet warm and comfy with their double outer layer and super soft inner layer. The inner layer is treated with aloe vera (yes, aloe vera!) to soothe your active feet. Not sure how long the aloe will last after repeated machine washings, but nevertheless, the fabric is silky soft.
Outer layer: 51% nylon, 39% acrylic, 7% polyester, 3% spandex. Inner layer: 97% microfiber nylon, 3% spandex.
2. Freezable Lunch Bag by Packit® – $20
It’s important to keep cold foods cold, but ice packs get wet and messy as they start to unfreeze. No ice packs needed with this bag as the freezable gel is sewn into the walls of the bag. This lunch bag fits a meal, snack, and a 12-oz bottle. It compactly folds up for easy storage, and the buckle handle can attach to backpacks and other bags.
3. Inflatable Solar Light by Luci® – $20
This lightweight little light collapses to just one inch. Great for backpacking, travel, pool/patio, home, and emergencies. Light lasts for 24 hours on the lowest setting. Charges in 7 hours in direct sunlight. Four modes: low medium, high, and one-second flashing. These inflatable lights come in a variety of sizes and colors (for soft ambient lighting).
4. Hyperlite™ All Weather Gloves – $25
These ultra-thin gloves are wind/waterproof and can activate any touchscreen with their SoundTouch™ technology in the thumbs and index fingers. No need to remove your gloves in the freezing cold to answer your phone! Comes in men’s and women’s sizes.
