Clever Fit Collar Stays

Some people can be so easy to shop for and others leave you guessing and wondering what they would and wouldn’t like, I am always wondering what to get my husband.  He seems to have it all and while I know that’s not the case, I just can’t seem to ever see something and think that it would make the perfect gift for him.  Well that changed when I was asked to review the CLEVERFIT Stay.  My husband wears dress shirts often and when ever he would drop them off at the cleaners he would forget to remove his collar stays.  Collar stays are needed to help keep dress shirts looking their best and keep the edges of the collars from bending, making it super difficult to iron.  Some dry cleaners would put them in the shirt collars when they clean them and others wouldn’t but if he washed those shirts at all he would forget about them.

In the past I had purchased my husband some durable plastic collar stays for his dress shirts.  They came in a package of about ten (enough for five shirts).  These were stronger and thicker than the free ones from the dry cleaners but within a few months those stays were starting to bend and break.  These new stays from CLEVERFIT are perfect for him.  They are adjustable and so strong and durable.  They will make a great gift for the well dressed man in your life.  A set of four is priced at $49.95 and it’s sure to be a hit.  You can purchase it on the CLEVERFIT Stay website and they are offering free shipping worldwide on all orders.

About CLEVERFIT Stays:

What is it? CLEVERFIT is the world’s first precision fit adjustable collar stay. Its unique patent pending design provides an innovative solution to end decades of frustration. CLEVERFIT’s quick-sizing capability eliminates the need for keeping up with multiple sets of fixed length stays. Engineered and crafted in stainless steel, the CLEVERFIT collar stay provides a superior alternative to plastic collar stays, which can deform, warp and even break with use.

How does it work? CLEVERFIT puts the power of adjustability at the user’s fingertips. Simply hold in one hand, apply light directional pressure between the thumb and forefingers to extend or retract CLEVERFIT to the optimum length for the selected shirt collar. CLEVERFIT’s universal sizing features offer two modes of use to insure the proper fit for everyday wear as well as an extra firming capability for more demanding occasions.

The CLEVERFIT Adjustable Collar Stay Story: CLEVERFIT Collar Stays were created by Sherif Zaki, an engineer, businessman and entrepreneur who simply got tired of dealing with the hassles of keeping up with numerous mismatched, flimsy and poorly fitting stays. The “Aha Moment” happened on an early morning five years ago; when reaching for a stack of assorted stays he inadvertently scattered them on the closet floor. While crawling around collecting them, he thought, “Wow there has to be a better way to get a proper looking shirt collar than wasting time searching through this cluttered pile of inferior tiny plastic strips everyday.” The memories of having to improvise on business trips (using a small cardboard cutout) to replace a warped or broken stay added even more fuel to the desire to create a better solution to these collar stay problems. Inspired and motivated, Sherif decided to create his own. And after multiple prototypes and a few years of dedicated effort, The CLEVERFIT Adjustable Collar Stay came to life.

These stays are great gifts for men of all ages.  You can gift them to business men, someone who wears lots of dress clothes, college students or even the younger men in your life.  They come in a very nice case to protect them when they are not in use and perfect for traveling.  It’s a great investment for all men and one they’ll cherish for a long time.

About the book:

The Night After Christmas extends Clement C. Moore’s classic tale about a visit from St. Nicholas.  Christmas night concludes as Santa returns to the North Pole after completing his busiest night of the year.

​This storybook is recommended for believers of any age.

My thoughts:

I really loved this book.  It’s a beautifully illustrated and written book for believers of all ages.  The book is about the journey Santa has to make back to the North Pole.  Often we never think about what happens after all the houses have been visited and all the gifts left to make boys and girls happy on Christmas morning.  Reading it to my children was so much fun, we were excited about the snow in the story and anxious as the elves and when Santa arrived back home safe and jolly the kids cheered that he was home with his family so they could enjoy Christmas together just like it.  This book is going on our Christmas Eve Tradition list from this year forward and when you read it I promise you will add it to yours as well.  It will make a great stocking stuffer or better yet add it to a Christmas Eve gift box.  You can get it in either a softcover or the ebook and start enjoying this holiday gem today.

Introduce Your Child to Foreign Languages with Little Pim

Introduce Your Child to Foreign Languages with Little Pim

Little Pim

Disclosure: The item featured below is a part of my Holiday Gift Guide.  I was provided an item in exchange for an honest review.  Any and all opinions expressed are my own and have not been influenced.

When I was growing up taking a foreign language was a part of the classes we had to take in order to graduate, back then all you were offered was either Spanish or French and for the most part that wasn’t until you were in high school.  Now kids are being introduced to foreign languages at an earlier age as a way to make it easier for the kids to learn, understand and better incorporate those languages.  I have friends whose kids are now learning not just Spanish and French but also Chinese and Latin.  Now that I have my own kids I wanted to introduce them to a new language as early as possible.  I’ve tried other programs but the one that we have enjoyed the most has been our Little Pim products.  Our first experience with them was when we reviewed their digital download for Chinese.  The kids had a blast learning the new words and exploring the program.

Little Pim

About the Discovery Set:

Our French Discovery Set includes:

  • Three (3) videos: Eating and Drinking; Wake Up Smiling; Playtime (digital or DVD)
  • Plush Little Pim toy
  • Little Pim poster

Starring Little Pim, the lovable panda bear, each video will captivate your child with its combination of animation and real kids.

Each video contains 7 episodes, broken into short 5-minute intervals to keep your child engaged. Your little one will love cuddling with their very own Little Pim plush panda as they watch all 21 episodes together!

My thoughts on the set:

We reviewed the French discovery set.  This set is priced at $34.99 for the digital download, $54.99 for the DVD set with the Plush Pim Panda and a poster.  We loved it just as much as the first set.  I like that the lessons are show in everyday settings so the kids learn better how to apply the words they are learning.  The words are shown as well and they get to hear it several times in each lesson.  The kids absolutely love their Pim Panda and they take him with them everywhere.  Little Pim offers a free demo of any of their eleven languages (Spanish, French, Chinese, German, Italian, Japanese, Arabic, Hebrew, Russian, Portuguese and English -ESL).  We also recently discovered Tri-lingual Book and Plush Set as well.

About the book set:

Price: $49.99

The Trilingual Book & Plush Set includes:

  • Four (4) Little Pim books: ColorsFeelingsAnimals; & Numbers
  • Plush Little Pim panda toy
  • Little Pim poster

All 4 books are in English, with words featured in Spanish and French. Little ones will love reading and learning while cuddling with their own soft plush Little Pim panda toy.

The books weave vocabulary into hide-and-seek stories featuring Little Pim and conclude with a helpful review of the words learned. Pronunciation guides for parents are included.

My thoughts on the book set:

My kids really loved the books just as much as the DVDs.  The really enjoy learning each word in the three different languages and make it fun and exciting to see who gets it right first.  I like that the book is interactive and they can pull up pictures and pull on tabs to learn more and more.  It’s a great gift set to get your kids started with a foreign language while having fun.
