How did we ever live without them?
While I haven’t jumped on the air fryer train yet, I do love a good gadget. Whether you’re making a holiday shopping list or just treating yourself, here are five products we own, love, and highly recommend.
GE Profile™ Opal™ 2.0 Nugget Ice Maker with Side Tank
I know my husband loves me, but I’m not sure he loves me as much as he loves this ice maker. It fits on the counter and doesn’t require a water line!
I take forever to finish my cup of coffee, but I hate when it’s cold. I’m embarrassed to say I own three of these mugs, plus one travel mug. I don’t drink coffee out of any other cup.
Thermacell E55 Rechargeable Mosquito Repeller
We live on the water, and this is the ONLY thing that has ever allowed us to eat outside without getting mosquito bites. And it doesn’t smell!
