Cool Gear Inc Holiday Cup Review

Cool Gear is an innovative company that offers an array of festive food and beverage storage products.  Whether you’re looking to entertain guests with festive spritzers, enjoy a wintery hot cocoa on your morning commute, or simply become immersed in the enchanting holiday season Cool Gear has you covered. Cool Gear also has a full line of water filtration bottles, Ez Freeze gear, Eco friendly products, Kid friendly products and so much more.

I love drinking coffee, tea and hot chocolate especially on the go during the winter. I have found it very hard to find a cup that does everything that I want it to do. Either the cup leaks, doesn’t keep my beverage warm or the worst burns my hand when holding it because its not insulated. The Eco 2 Go Printed Holiday Mug is my must have mug. It has everything I want. With its double-wall insulation I don’t have to worry about my hand getting burnt from holding the cup or have to wear gloves to protect my hand. 🙂 Plus it has a  spill-proof lid so I don’t have to worry about it leaking. The Eco 2 Go Printed Holiday Mug comes in various printed graphic designs including red and green ornaments, blue snowflakes, red and green stripes, and a Christmas tree. My favorite is the Snowflake. Plus the band is reversible so it is perfect all year long. The Eco 2 Go Printed Holiday Mug is the perfect eco-friendly option to transport your favorite cocoas, ciders or coffees.

Alexandria loves drinking her beverages with a straw. 99% of the time this means she is going to play with her straw and that usually means spilled drinks and messes. I love the Eco 2 Go Holiday Chillers. The cup has double-wall insulation, saving my furniture from white rings. 🙂 The cup also features the screw on lid and keeps the straw inside the cup. The Eco 2 Go Printed Holiday Chiller is available in 4 Holiday Designs. Bluesnowflake, red and green stripe, holly and Christmas-themed polka dot designs.  The Eco 2 Go Printed Holiday Chiller holds 24 ounces of your favorite beverage.

Cheyenne fell in love with her new Holiday Ez Freeze Cool Zooey! She loves snowmen so it was perfect for her. It even has a rubber grip to make it easy for her to hold. Of course Cheyenne being a two year old the cup was dropped several times and even thrown a couple but the cup didn’t break or lose it durability. I love the fact that it doesn’t leak and that it has a non-toxic freezer stick to help keep her drinks cold. Cool Gear Holiday EZ Freeze Cool Zooey cup come in three colors and and three adorable flip-top options. Kids can choose from snowman, polar bear and Santa Claus. The Holiday Ez Freeze Cool Zooey cup holds 12.5 ounces of your child’s favorite drink.

Too Many Toys???

Every year Christmas brings joy and happiness to our home. It also brings an over abundance of toys when added to the ones you already have usually leaving little space for the little ones to enjoy their new toys. So we explained to the kids that in order for “Santa” to bring them new toys that they needed to make room for them. At first the kids weren’t thrilled with the idea of getting rid of their toys but we explained to them that at the end they would be proud of helping others. We started with 5 boxes. We started by writing Broken, Donate, Missing pieces, Outgrown and Favorite on the boxes. This helped us as we went along to stay focused and organized. We went through the toys and started by throwing away any toys that had gotten broken through out the year and were unable to be played with or used for other projects. As we went along anytime they found one of their toys that they constantly play with they got to put it in their Favorite box. Then we moved on to any toys that were missing pieces. Usually even if toys are missing pieces they can be used for other things such as arts and crafts, school projects or sometimes someone has the pieces that are missing and are looking for them. Next we go through any toys that the kids have outgrown. These got into the box but are only there for a little while until we go through them again to see what toys can be put away until younger siblings can enjoy them or if there is no younger sibling we put them in our Donate box. Preschools and Day cares  can give your kids toys that they have outgrown a great new home and will be enjoyed by many other children. There are many resources out there today such as Craigslist.org and Freecycle.org that allow you to post your “unwanted” items. Many times our kids outgrown their toys before they even look used. There are a lot of kids who would love and appreciate to get second-hand toys for presents and give new homes to out grown toys. When all of the toys are gone through we let the kids know how proud we are of them. And explain to them that Santa will be doing a toy pick up on December 1st. All of the toys that the kids are donating are left out at night for “Santa” to come pick up and drop off for other kids to enjoy on Christmas. The kids feel like special Santa elves and their favorite part is knowing that they will be putting smiles on other kids faces on Christmas.
