Holidays 2018: Creature Comforts for Your Home


For many of us, our Christmas wishlist has changed significantly as we’ve gotten older. Instead of fun toys, clothes, or the newest pieces of technology, we are now looking at things we can use inside our homes. Things that we need but also things that we love. Long gone are the days where we are hoping there is a new gaming system or the coolest new toy under the tree- now we are just hoping for a new vacuum that actually keeps up with our dog’s shedding season. Daily Mom has found some great last minute gifts that are perfect for those creature comforts we have come to love as we get older.

Let’s get down to the nitty gritty- the American culture when it comes to toilet hygiene is behind the times. In many countries you can find heated bidet seats in public bathrooms. But here in the US we are still using plain old toilet paper. Why?

Daily Mom Parent Portal Omigo 2

This holiday season can change all of that. Omigo is heated bidet seat that replaces your regular toilet seat. It simply snaps into where your old seat was and offers you a bathroom experience like nothing you’ve ever had before. The Omigo touts features like:

  • A soft nightlight when you lift the seat
  • Adjustable heat so you never have to sit on a cold seat again
  • An internal deodorizer that pulls the odor out through a carbon-block filter
  • A bidet feature that is adjustable for your body, and sprays warm water at the pressure you desire
  • An air dryer so you not only feel fresh but you’re dry, too

All of the features can be adjusted with the remote so you can have a personalized bathroom experience. The Omigo is easy to install and the nozzle is self-cleaning. It helps save thousands of sheets of toilet paper per year, making it an investment not only in yourself but also the environment. It will truly up your bathroom game this holiday season but just be careful- now your husband will take even longer in the bathroom (if that’s even possible).

There is no doubt that you want your family to be safe during the holiday season, but that safety should extend throughout the year as well. This is the time of year when you have several people coming to your house- delivery services, mail services, and guests- and you want to be sure that when you answer the door you know who is there.

Swann Security offers several different types of home security options that are easy to install and affordable. The Swann Security Camera can be placed inside or outside your home. It connects to your wi-fi in minutes, so you are able to see what’s going on when you’re not home as soon as you install it via the Swann Security app on your phone. It saves up to 7 days worth of audio and video so you can look back if needed.

The Swann Video Doorbell gives you direct access to the person knocking at your front door. When they ring the bell, you are alerted via your phone’s app and you are able to see who is standing there. This way you and your family know if it is safe to answer or if it is a stranger. It also has night-vision, 2-way audio, a 112 degree wide viewing angle, and responds to heat signatures for detection.

Keep your family safe this holiday season and all year long with Swann Security.

6Creature Comforts for your home from Intex

There is no doubt that the holidays will bring guests to your door (or maybe you will be the one going to other people’s doors). For those nights when you have extra people in your home or when you are crashing after a hard day of present opening, the PremAire Thermalux Airbed gives you a comfortable place to sleep without feeling like you’re actually sleeping on the floor.

Daily Mom Parent Portal Last Minute

This 20” air mattress is elevated high enough so you feel like you’re in a real bed. The internal pump makes it easy to pump it up wherever you are without having to remember to bring it with you. It inflates quickly and easily, and deflates fast by using the pump- just a touch of a button adds or takes out air. The rounded edges give you a little extra protection from falling off, and the soft velvet overlay makes it that much more comfortable. NO matter the temperature in your house (we’re looking at you, dad) your guests will be comfortable because the soft-layer weave insulates in the cold and wicks moisture in the heat. The digital pump even offers a firmness control and a USB charging port for your phone.

8Creature Comforts for your home from Luna

Can you ever really have enough blankets? Here at Daily Mom our answer is a resounding no! And if that blanket promotes a deeper REM cycle and promotes a restorative sleep, we think you’ve found the gift that just keeps on giving.

This season the Luna weighted blanket really is the gift that will keep giving all throughout the year. The Luna Weighted Blanket utilizes “Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation” (DTPS) to release serotonin and melatonin, reduce movement while asleep, and provide an overall calming effect to help achieve a deeper and better night’s sleep.

In addition to being great for anyone looking for a more restful sleep it is also great for ADD/ADHD, Sleep Disorders, PTDS, Nervous System Distorders and much more.

We fell in love with the Christmas Hearth and Santa’s Hot Tub scents. Perfect for the holiday season, each with their own festive twists (balsam in one, warm cinnamon and spice in the other), your home will smell so delicious this December and all winter long. We also adore Excelsior’s Autumn Harvest scent, bursting with every bit of fall-scented delight that you could want in a candle. Their Lavender Vanilla blend is the perfect soothing scent to accompany a hot bath, or at the end of a long, stressful day.

Each Excelsior Candle is scented with proprietary blends that you won’t find from any other candle company, and created with essential oils. They fill your home with amazing scents, but are not overpowering. The 11-ounce candle are poured in heavy glass jars, perfect to reuse after your candle is gone, and stunning to put on display.

Our kitchen is our sanctuary, and we always want to use products that not only look good but that are also functional for our space. Hardwood cutting boards are classic and they offer a more stylish look than plastic ones, but the problem is always the same: they take up too much space. 

The woodNflex Flexible Hardwood Cutting Board takes care of that problem. Its stylish and sleek design is exactly what you love about wooden cutting boards, but it is flexible- it can literally bend and fold- so it is easy to store when you’re not using it (counter space for days!). It is made with a silicone back so it won’t slip, it is easy to wash, and its flexible design gives you the ability to pour your items easily instead of scraping them into a bowl and making a mess.

If you have someone who loves style but craves efficiency, then the woodNflex Flexible Cutting Board is for them.

Spreadable butter is the “greatest thing since sliced bread”. Gone are the days of trying to spread butter that is cold from refrigeration. The Butter Bell French butter crock is the staple everyone should have in their kitchen.

Simply smash the butter in the lid, add enough cold water to the base to just cover the butter and create a seal. Spread it on your toast for breakfast or use it when your recipe requires “room temperature butter”. There is no turning back once your hooked. You might even find yourself wanting one for regular butter and one for your favorite herb infused butter.

This classic bone china container will look great on your table or countertop. If your uneasy about keeping the butter out, just follow the recommendation of changing the water every 3 days to keep it fresh.
