As much as I enjoy playing board games and love recommending them, I have to admit that this is one of my favorite holiday gift guides. We play games on a regular basis but cycle through different types by different publishers. These household and electronics items are the types of products you’ll see us raving about all year long. As a few examples: I am a huge fan of the creator of Popped Passion and have thoroughly enjoyed watching her bring her passion for popcorn to life in a unique way. You can hear some of my opinions on tech included in Dell Outlet’s buyer’s guide. We’re regular consumers of Vizio products and our passion for Nintendo was apparent when they invited us to visit the Nintendo of America headquarters.
Several of these are items we use on a daily basis regardless of whether we’ve written about them on the site or not. If you see our logo then we’ve featured the product in more detail so be sure to click through to read how these products play a part in our lives. Of course, if you are a fan of free stuff, keep watch of our holiday giveaways where you’ll have a chance to enter to win some of these awesome products!
