Ultimate Gift Guide: Health and Wellness

  1. Manicure & Pedicure set

This is one of those quick last minute gift ideas that never goes out of style. Everyone loves a good manicure or pedicure and these are handy to be used by either gender.

The reviews on this manicure set are appealing and I was not disappointed with them. They are tiny and fit in any toilet bag.

Do you have an upcoming girl meet up or forgot to order for a gift in time. This 3 sword Manicure & Pedicure set kit made in Germany by Solingen is the ultimate gift.

The set contains: Nail scissors, cuticle scissors , nail clippers large and small , double tool , tweezers, Hoof Stick and sapphire nail file.

By now you know that I love a good pouch and this kit does not disappoint it comes in a black gift package.




These Zwilling satin finish stainless steel slant tweezers are made to the highest of standards, the tweezers’ shanks are of identical length and the filed inner sides are ideal ground for gripping any hair. Perfectly slanted to grip every hair with true precision, perfect for eyebrows and other unwanted hair.

These will make a good gift to anyone who has stubborn hairs that seem to appear at wrong places or place. I have a few stubborn hairs that only appear or seem more obvious in the summer when I pull out that crop top ;). These are super handy even for the eyebrow hair that is out of line.


3. Wine Drop stop

This is the lightest gift I have ever received.  The silver sheet is so light I thought my friend was pulling my leg with the cute gift box that did not weigh anything.

It was such an adorable gift. The Wine Drop Stop is rolled to desired size and inserted in an open wine bottle to stop any spillages to the tables or place mats. It is so cute because the residual wine drops that sometimes run on the outside of the bottle now roll back into the bottle.

I received many of these cute tops that I also shared them with my friends and feedback has been the same, useful simple gadget. The re-gifting idea is awesome, after all sharing is caring.

Note: Remember to wipe dry because they do get stained and once not in use they can be stored next to the wine opener so that they are not forgotten.

Wine stop


Budget Tip: Sometimes the receiver gets too many similar gifts and there is no harm in re-gifting to other friends who need the things as well. If one knows the original giver of the gift might not like the idea consult with them first before sharing the items.

Best wishes.

  1. The Koss Stereo Headphone

Frequency Response: 15-25,000 Hz to capture every nuance in your favorite movie or musical performance.
These headphones are super cute and comfortable because they have a padding. They are collapsible and adjustable not only in width but also how firm or light the user wants to fit.

They have an element design for deep bass perfomance.
Foam earcushions provide an open, hear-through sound that lets you keep in touch with your surroundings perfect to wear while running, at work, or while traveling. 

The Koss Headphones do come with a soft pouch where they can be stored and the user will not have to worry about the cord being entangled.

2. WD My Passport – portable hard drive

My Passport is the ideal companion for anyone with lots of videos, photos, music, and files that they want to help protect and take on the road.

We all have accumulated data and keep adding onto the many files and what better way to store all in this gadget that is built for durability, shock tolerance, and long-term reliability.

My Passport offers high capacity in a sleek portable drive. It features ultra-fast USB 3.0 connectivity; automatic, backup software; and password protection and hardware encryption to help protect your files from unauthorized use with plenty of room to store all your files.
Automatic backup

Powered directly from the USB port on your PC. No separate power supply is needed.

3. Portable Power Bank

Imagine losing phone life while on the go. We have all become accustomed to the little monsters that have become our phones. This Portable powerbank makes sure the user never goes into a panic while the battery of a phone or tablet runs low. Once I went on holiday to the beautiful motherland and lo and behold, there was loadshedding, (when electricity is off in some areas) I wished I had carried this powerbank baby to at least notify my family where I had reached.

The powerbank comes with two connectors and two USB so the owner and a travel companion or housemate or two gadgets can be charged at once.

It comes with a fitted travel pouch that makes protecting its exterior easy.

Capacity: 15000mAh
Input: DC 5V/1.5A (Standard Micro USB Port)
Output: DC 5V/3.1A (2A+1A)


Or better yet forget it home and enjoy the company of the people around you even without the battery running out.

Happy Holidays

Budget tip: These are gadgets that will help save time, expenses of buying multiple flash disks. With the headphones working out can be easier with the music blaring in the ears.

PS: All photos taken by me.

Share gift ideas in the electronics department that you love or a nerd in your network would love to get.

Dreams are valid and no matter the budget they can be achieved.

Happy New Year 2016.
