Gadgets to Make the Holidays Easier
The holiday season can definitely get hectic and I know during this busy time we could all use a hand or two. This year, I’ve been focused on finding things to make my life easier during the holidays, and I’ve found a few gadgets that have made all of the difference! In today’s post, I’m sharing a few gadgets to make the holidays easier so you can spend more time enjoying and less time stressing.
I truly enjoy giving my friends and family gifts during the holidays, and shopping for them is enjoyable for me (if I give myself enough time to do it). The downside with gifts? Wrapping them. Every year there are boxes and boxes of gifts to wrap… and it can feel a little overwhelming. Once I started using this little gadget called Wrap Buddy three years ago, it changed the game for me! Don’t get me wrong, I still have lots of wrapping to do, but this gadget has made it easier to wrap and has made me more efficient so I can get wrapping done quicker. It holds your wrapping paper in place so you can easily unroll paper and get started. It even has a space to hold your tape! It makes the perfect wrapping station!
If you have pets or young children at home, these Ornament Anchors are about to become your new best friend. With kids and pets running around, the low-hanging ornaments tend to get knocked off the tree and broken. I know I have dealt with this with pets before! These ornament anchors allow you to zip your ornament tight to the tree so that if it is hit, it won’t fall off the tree and break. Essentially, it creates a more stable foundation for your ornaments giving you one less thing to worry about.
This gadget has been a go-to for years for turning our Christmas tree on and off. It’s a tree remote that allows you to turn on and off the lights on your Christmas tree with the click of a button. First, plug the outlet piece into the wall, and then plug your tree into that outlet piece. And you’re done! Your remote connects to the piece and easily turns your tree on and off. No more crawling under the tree to unplug it!
Another gadget that makes wrapping gifts easier, this gift wrap cutter is a staple on my gift-wrapping table! It goes directly on your wrapping paper roll which you then slide up or down to cut the paper easily. No scissors necessary! It cuts paper in a clean line and just makes everything more efficient. I like to keep one of these on each roll of wrapping paper I’m using since I like to switch it up for different gifts.
Hopefully, these gadgets are as helpful for you this season as they are for me! Find even more of my favorite Holiday gadgets and essentials in this list here!
