Let’s Get Our Gift On!

Hey everyone! Its that time of year again and I’m hitting the road with some really fun gift ideas. All of which are great stocking stuffers! I’ll start off with something that everyone needs or wants and that’s cell phones.

Kyocera Hydro
Did you know that 82 million cellphones are damaged because of water and moisture? Yes! Its true! But that’s not the case for the new Kyocera Hydro from Boost Mobile.  It’s the first waterproof Android smartphone available without a contract. Hydro offers all of the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich features of a touchscreen smartphone with the added peace of mind that waterproofing can offer. Whether you get caught in a rainstorm or drop it in a puddle, sink or toilet, Hydro has you covered. It’s “oops proof” because let’s face it: life is full of accidents. And for only $99.99 on Boost Mobile’s Android Monthly Unlimited Plan with Shrinking Payments, you can get it for as little as $40 a month without a contract!  Get all the deets for yourself at Boost Mobile.


You more than likely have family and friends coming over for the holidays, so you want to make sure that you’ll keep their thirsts adequately handled.  That’s where the new  SodaStream Revolution comes in.  It’s a new, innovative soda maker with breakthroughs in both function and design. The Revolution is the first electrically powered soda maker for SodaStream, and offers many new features, like:

“Touch-button” activation providing a choice of carbonation levels (low, medium, high, turbo)

“Snap-n-lock” mechanism for easy bottle insertion and removal

LED display indicating carbonation progress and CO2 usage status

“The Revolution takes home soda making to the next level, and consumers will love the new features and the improved user experience,” stated Daniel Birnbaum, CEO of SodaStream. “With these patent-pending, technological advances our users will be empowered to make their own soda faster and more efficiently than ever before. The bottle simply clicks into place and carbonates at the single push of a button, offering a consistent level of fizz each time.”

Your family will love this because you’re not hauling bottles and cans from the store to your home to the trash.  The environment will love it too!  Plus, most of all, its fun making your own sodas!  Get your very own Sodastream Revolution.
