My Newest Gadget Obsessions

For Christmas I got several new gadgets that changed my life. Now I am totally not a gadget girl, I never buy these kinds of things. I would rather spend my money on clothes and home decor, but I love to ask for gadgets as gifts. So far I am obsessed with these 5 items.

1) KEURIG COFFEE MAKER
I love this coffee maker. It makes the perfect cup of coffee. I feel like our old pot of coffee would sit and get stale. Not this thing, it makes a fresh cup everytime. Can't recommend this enough. It has a clean sleek look so I don't mind it sitting out on my counter. I also love it for making hot green tea as well.




2) SONICARE TOOTHBRUSH
You may be thinking what a lame Christmas gift, a toothbrush? But this thing is amazing. I used to always laugh when my dentist would tell me I really needed to get one of these, a $150 toothbrush, umm no thanks. My parents surprised us with this and I swear I will never go back to a regular toothbrush. My teeth feel so clean! It is set on a two minute timer to make sure you really clean your teeth well. Before I got this I swear I must have only brushed my teeth for like 30 seconds because 2 minutes seems like forever. My teeth have never felt cleaner.





3) THE NINJA BLENDER
I never got the Breville Juicer I wanted for Christmas but I did get the Ninja Blender. This makes the best smoothies ever. It really will puree anything you put in it. I am off to the store this morning to get the stuff to make my favorite green smoothie (part of my New Years Detox)!





4) WARING ELECTRIC WINE OPENER
Ever since using my parents electric wine opener, I was obsessed. Santa was nice enough to bring me one and I love it. It makes opening wine so easy and you all know how much I love my glass of wine.





5) KITCHEN AID IMMERSION BLENDER
I love to make homemade soups, but always have to pour the mix into my food processor to puree. This usually makes a huge mess. This immersion blender makes pureeing my soups so much easier. Love the sleek white look of it and it is small enough to stash in a drawer or cabinet.





I am definitely no techie or gadget pro but these are a few of my new favorites that make my life easier!

I got so excited once I realized I could add the Keurig to my registry the other day! The electric wine opener must have been the gadget of Christmas 2012 because my mom gave them to everyone!

I got an immersion blender at a bridal shower in May, it is one of my favorite things evah! In the summer, saute some cherry tomatoes in evoo, throw in s&p and basil, blend, and you have amazing pasta sauce in about 4 mins!

I would die without my Keurig coffee maker! Gadgets are the perfect thing to ask for. I asked for a Dutch Oven and got it. I love it!

Bud and Leo said...

We have the toothbrush, immersion blender and the wine opener...love all of them! We luckily registered for ours because I'm like you, I don't care to spend my own money. :)

I am totally into my little ninja! The thing can seriously do anything...and I'm pretty sure I need that toothbrush! After having some not-so-stellar news at the dentist, I think a change is in order!!! And who doesn't like stuff that makes your life easier???

An immersion blender has been a game changer for soup making. Im trying to convince the hubby we need a kuerig...

My mother-in-law got me the keurig 2 years ago for Christmas and we have used it every day since. We recently got the K-cup filter to fill with our own loose grounds. Love that just as much.

I have never looked into getting an electric wine opener but it sounds like something I could really use. Definitely checking those out!

Have a great 2012!
