I struggle with gifts for my man. He’s really hard to shop for. He’s also really hardworking and deserves to be treated and shown how much he is appreciated! Valentine’s Day is coming up and while we normally just celebrate with a kid-friendly family meal together, this year I wanted to spoil the hubs a little and show him how much he’s loved. I’ve come up a few unique gift ideas that I wanted to share in case anyone else is in the same boat.
My husband is a baseball coach. We spend a LOT of time at baseball fields. CleverMade’s SnapBasket Cooler is perfect for keeping cold beverages at hand as well as keeping lunch/snacks fresh. It holds up to 50 cans plus ice and will keep iced beverages cold for 36 hours. My husband can’t stand warm beverages so this cooler will be the gift that keeps on giving with cold drinks all year long!
The cool thing about this cooler is that it collapses flat in a snap for easy storage. It has soft sides that wipe clean and offer a leakproof interior. We are headed to Hawaii next month and plan on spending a lot of time on the beach. Since this packs down flat, we can easily fit it in our suitcase and save money by packing our own picnic lunches for wherever our adventures take us! We love this heather grey/black color combo but the SnapBasket Cooler is also available in several other color combinations and sells for just $29.99.
I mentioned that we are going to Hawaii next month. I couldn’t think of a more fitting or unique gift than SharkBanz! I am sure we will be doing a lot of snorkeling in the ocean. With SharkBanz, predatory shark species are deterred using patented magnetic technology developed by marine biologists. You can wear the band on your ankle or wrist and it doesn’t need batteries or charging – it is always on!
From the SharkBanz website: “When sharks approach Sharkbanz, they detect the device’s strong electromagnetic field, which provides a sudden sensation that is thousands of times stronger than the signal produced by anything in a shark’s normal food chain. Consequently, sharks are deterred away from Sharkbanz. This cause and effect is analogous to having a bright light suddenly shined in your eyes in a dark room. You would not be hurt, but you would want to turn away.”
Want to see it in action? Visit www.sharkbandz.com to see video of the trials that were conducted to prove its effectiveness. It’s pretty amazing!
My go-to for gifts used to be clothing. That is until my husband told me he hates getting clothes as gifts. I think he’ll make an exception for this Volt Omega Heated Hoodie. What’s not to love about this comfy, cozy HEATED hoodie?! As I mentioned, my husband is a baseball coach. We live in the Pacific Northwest which means the weather is far from warm, especially when our baseball and softball seasons start in February. Last year my son played a tournament in the SNOW. My daughter also plays soccer year round so we spend a lot of time outdoors despite the cold weather.
The Omega Heated Hoodie keeps your body’s core warm with their patented Zero Layer Heat System. Made with high strength poly/cotton blend that holds its shape, this sweatshirt will stay looking good. An external rubber switch on the outside of the right hip pocket controls the sweatshirt’s 3 different settings. It glows red on the highest setting, blue for the medium setting and green for the lowest setting. It heats in four zones: upper back, lower middle back, and each pocket to help keep your hands warm.
It comes with a 5 volt 6000 mHh battery and charging cord. The battery can also be used to charge a cell phone when not being used to heat the hoodie. The powerbank provides soothing heat on high for 2+ hours or 5+ hours on the lowest setting. You can use any 5V USB powerbank to run the heat system as long as it has a minimum 2 amp output.
The Omega Heated Hoodie is just one of the many heated products that Volt offers. If your hubs is a snow sport enthusiast, hunter, outdoorsman etc., you’ll find so many great options from base layers to footwear, jackets and everything in between. The gift of warmth is the ultimate Valentine’s Day gift!
