You’ve heard the old adage that no one on their deathbed wishes they spent more hours in the office. You can’t put a price on quality time spent with the people you love. But finding that time can be hard!
Schedules are getting busier and there are more and more distractions in the form of modern technology. Sound familiar? Then these products to help you reconnect with your loved ones could be for you.
Cake Maker for Easy Baking
Baking is one of the best social activities. As well as being great fun, you get to enjoy the delicious treats you’ve made together at the end of it. Sounds good to us!
The only downside is having to wait for your cakes to be cooked whilst delicious smells waft tantalisingly out of your oven. Instead, with a cake maker your cakes or brownies can be ready in as little as four minutes! Just pop your kettle on and by the time you’ve made your brew you can enjoy some freshly baked cake with it too.
Sports Blender for Exercising
Having an exercise partner is a great way to stay fit and healthy. Some people prefer gentle exercise like a wander through a local park or a bike ride. Others favour more active pursuits like tennis or a vigorous swim. They’re all great ways to spend quality time with someone close to you.
No matter which type you are, you’ll need some refreshment to hydrate you after your exertions and we’ve got just the ticket. A blender with a sports bottle built in makes replenishing your energy with a delicious smoothie or juicy slushy ever so easy.
Coffee Machine for Catching Up
Good coffee and good conversation; it’s a tried and tested combo. You don’t even have to go to a coffee shop to enjoy it. Relax with a latte brewed by your very own coffee machine. No more messing around with percolators or overpriced coffee shop mocha frappuccinos for you.
Slow Cooker for Effortless Entertaining
Having friends and relatives over for dinner sounds like a great way to catch up with them. Until you’re sweating over your saucepans whilst your guests wait patiently in the living room that is. A little prior preparation with one handy slow cooker and the situation is entirely different. Prepare your meal in advance and you’ll spend less time cooking and more time chatting.
Massage Chair for Relaxing
Hit the spa in your own home. Get yourself a couple of massage chairs and you can enjoy quality time socialising, whilst relaxing and soothing your muscles simultaneously. Chairs that heat and massage your back are much cheaper than hiring a masseuse and you can use them time and time again. Bonus points for making your own homemade face masks.
Even with your existing appliances, like your cooker or even your kettle, you can bake, brew and brainstorm ways to spend more quality time with the people you care about. Go forth and make some amazing memories!
