2 Gifts Dad can use for Traveling this summer from Spice of Life

2 Gifts Dad can use for Traveling this summer from Spice of Life

As you prepare for summer travels, Father’s Day and celebrations, we know that weather and time will be factors. I love the long days of summer where I can be outdoors late in the day before it gets dark. It is all serene until heat takes its toll. These 2 products from Spice of Life make great gifts Dad can use and for the Traveler on your gift lists.

speaker light

When the long days end and you need to relax, nothing beats a good playlist and an engaging book. The Hands Free Buddy Beat Speaker Light with bluetooth connectivity puts “Me-Time” in your hands (or around your neck). The LED lights are bright up front as well as the LED light with the glow-in-the-dark logo in the back. For safety, you can be seen coming and going in the dark. The arms are flexible so you can adjust the light in different angles according to the direction needed.

book light

Use the bluetooth speaker to listen to music, podcasts or take calls. Your hands are free to tidy up at the end of the evening outside or read a book as the day ends. They come in 4 colors – black, ivory, lime green, and camouflage color.

neck fan

Another must-have summer gadget from Spice of Life is the Portable Neck Fan. Just as it sounds – it is a fan you wear around your neck. The material is so soft and comfortable (just like the light speaker I mention above) and is not heavy at all.

It has 5 blades in each fan head to produce maximum airflow with minimal noise. It is flexible so that you can adjust to your height and wind direction. Choose from 3 speeds and your fingers are safe from the blades. Also, there are 10 color choices. You can stay cool and keep your hands free!

OxiClean ON THE GO Stain Remover Pen to the rescue

OxiClean ON THE GO Stain Remover Pen

It is one pen and it works as a stain remover and scrubber together! Chances are you will be out to eat or at an outing and your clothes are attacked – food, wine, makeup, lipstick, chocolate, spaghetti, soy sauce and more! Having the OxiClean On The Go Stain Remover Pen in your purse or car makes a difference in how hard that stain will be to remove when you get home. In many cases it can eliminate the look of the stain right away.

The pen has OxyClean power, meaning it is formulated with the power of Oxygen to remove these common “On the Go” stains. It works in only 2 steps – squeeze and scrub! Of course, you will remove any of the stain debris, place a napkin or something neutral behind it and squeeze the pen, then use the attached scrubber to work it in.

No worries, the formula is safe on most fabrics and there is NO BLEACH. It simply uses an oxygenated formula to work at the stain. On heavy stains, it works to start the lifting process so you can get home and finish in the wash. Always test a spot first on a fabric in question, but given the ingredients, it should work on just about any fabric.

You can find the OxiClean On The Go Stain Remover Pen in most retailers, including Amazon. Visit OxiCleanPen to learn more. Keep one in your purse, car or out for guests to use when you are serving BBQ this summer!

Comment: I was provided a copy for review

New Children's Book | If You Come To Earth by Sophie Blackall

If You Come To Earth is a new children’s book released today by Sophie Blackall who is a two-time Caldecott Winner, authgor-illustrator.

About the new children’s book

If You Came to Earth is a glorious guide to our home planet, and a call for us to take care of both Earth and each other.

Sophie Blackall has met amazing children in her travels around the world in support of UNICEF and Save the Children and these children have inspired this story. The curious and imaginative child in this story brings us the important message about the need to care for the earth and each other.

Our planet is so diverse and as I read this book that was very clear. We are all different but we share one important gift…our planet. It’s our differences that make us amazing together. A great story for families, classrooms and read-a-longs.

This new children’s book, If You Came To Earth is published by Chronicle Books and available on Amazon.
