IDEAS FOR VALENTINES DAY

I can't believe we are already half way through January, I guess time does pass more quickly the older you get! And now it's February, an even shorter month. However, people seem to be a bit happier despite the freezing weather. And, it is easy to tell why; we have 2 great days to look forward to next month; pancake day and Valentine's day!

Valentine's is a day to look forward to; whether you are in a relationship or not. Everyone deserves a nice, relaxing evening, whether it be spent on the sofa with a large pizza and Titanic on the screen or enjoying a candlelit dinner.

There are a number of things you can do to celebrate Valentines day:

  • Go out on a date with your partner
  • Sit in with a bowl of treats and binge watch TV
  • Cook a nice romantic meal at home
  • Have a nice hot bubble bath and read a good book.
  • Forget romance and have a horror movie night with friends. (that way, romance is literally dead)!

So, once you have decided what you are doing to celebrate Valentines day, you can purchase items you need to make your evening that bit more special.

     


I think it is safe to say that if the lighting is right, then our moods are lifted. In my opinion, a warm, orange light filling a room is very soothing and romantic. However, there is something that is just as important as creating the right mood, and that is purchasing gifts for your valentine (even if it is yourself)!
    


And, if all else fails, at least we have pancake day to look forward to?

ARE YOU A TEA OR COFFEE FAN?

Are you a tea fan? It seems the majority of us are, with us Brits drinking over 165 million cups of tea a day. From the mid 1700's we have loved a good cuppa, and I have a feeling that is not going to change anytime soon, seeing as tea is the second most consumed drink in the world.

  

Here at Homebits, we have a wide selection of products to help make your cuppa as good as possible. Seeing as we drink it all the time, why not drink it in style?

Are you constantly on the go? Why not have a handy gadget that can fit in your bag and help you make great cups of tea?

  

I know the weather being so bitter, the last thing we think about is staying in shape when a slice of cake or a bowl of popcorn seems much more tempting than venturing out to the gym or eating a salad on a cold day. However, tea has been found to have many benefits to your health! Tea contains antioxidants, which keep us young and refreshed. Using these products, a loose leaf hot green tea would do wonders in helping your immune system. Or, if you feel adventurous, why not try our Iced Tea Maker? I know I sound crazy to suggest it, but you will end up with a very refreshing drink that will keep you up and running.




However, it has been found that us your average Brit drinks 4 cups of coffee a day (which works out to be around £676 a year), proving that a fair few of us can't go without a strong caffeine hit. Despite there being 5 attempts to ban coffee throughout history (one of which being that it was associated with the devil), it is a great drink that is perfect all year round. So, if your head can't lift off the pillow in the morning unless you smell coffee, we have a few options for you!

         

Don't forget the milk and sugar!

A GREAT IDEA

It's winter. It's freezing. So, I am assuming your heating is on full blast at home throughout the day. Something that I have found to be growing in popularity is underfloor heating. And, I can see why, it's fantastic! There is nothing better than getting in from the cold and my feet instantly feeling nice and warm.

It seems even Romans loved it as much as I do, with the very wealthy having underfloor heating their homes, villas and public baths. However, this was due to the fact their slaves kept a fire blazing in a furnace and the warm air travelled in the spaces under the floor and walls...

Also, I am sure Romans weren't too bothered about door stops. I do not want my underfloor heating and flooring ruined with holes in the floor from screws, and I don't want my doors hitting the walls and ruining the paintwork. (I don't think a single person in my house can open a door without it crashing against the wall)! So, while looking for solutions, I found these.




These door stops from Homebits are so easy to install and save both your floor and walls. You can even purchase extra self adhesive base plates, just in case. Such a clever idea!

TEENAGERS & CHRISTMAS

Hello Christmas shoppers. If this is your first time here, this is week three in discussing possible gift ideas for people who I believe to be difficult to buy for. If you feel this has been useful, the last 2 may be also!

Next topic; Teenagers.

What do you get them? Getting the right gift is notoriously difficult, with the recent trends constantly changing and the mood swings spiralling out of control every few minutes. It seems like mission impossible, and, honestly, I thought I was just being extremely optimistic in thinking I could come up with a few ideas!

However, after a very long week of discussing this with others, I think I have cracked it. I have managed to find two options, all from Homebits, that are different but sure to be liked.

 


Hopefully, these gifts will stop the teens from frowning, even if it is only for a short while!

ITEMS PERFECT FOR YOUR TABLE THIS CHRISTMAS!

Christmas dinner, a fantastic meal that we have thoroughly enjoyed since the 16th century, is one of my favourite things about Christmas. The turkey, crispy roasties, pigs in blankets.. and of course the same jokes in the crackers from last year (do they ever think up new ones)?! It is a meal that brings all the family together. So, this year, why not accessorise your table and impress your guests? Here at Homebits, we have a variety of items that are great on your table for the big feast!




his lap pot coaster is a brilliant addition to your table. Available in a selection of different colours, this product offers a great way to pick up items, without burning yourself. If, like me, you find that you are often asked to 'pass the..', this product is incredibly useful!

One thing I really hate is spillages on the table, especially if it is red wine! Thankfully, there is a simple, effective solution; drip free carafes and place mats.

    

And, of course, us adults enjoy a glass of wine (or three) to accompany our meal. So, why not really enjoy your glass, by aerating the wine in a decanter?



All you need now is a few essentials, and a turkey.

THE CHRISTMAS SEASON CONTINUES

Hello my fellow organised Christmas shoppers.

This blog follows my one for last week, which includes a couple of ideas for Secret Santa presents at work. To help me and you stay organised, I have thought up a few more ideas for people who I have no idea what to get for Christmas. Of course, I do not want to bombard you with loads of information and seem like a nag, so, over the next few weeks, I am going to cover what I am getting for my nightmare family members in the hope it will help you find a good present for someone you know. And with it being Black Friday next weekend, make sure you visit our site and purchase all these fantastic products for a lower price!

Now, I am sure you have someone in your family or friendship group who is very set in their ways when it comes to what they like. Thought of someone? Mine is my Mother-in-Law. She is the most demanding, rude and terrifying woman on a normal day; so you can imagine how unbearable she can be around Christmas. The gifts she constantly repeats that she wants are far too expensive for my liking. However, she does not enjoy cooking, so constantly goes out to dinner (lucky for some!) and always has a bottle of wine to go with her meal. However, every time she sips the first mouthful, she complains about the taste, no matter how expensive the bottle was. So, I have decided that I am going to buy her this wine set. This wine set works by filtering, splitting and oxygenating the wine as you pour, improving the taste. I hinted to her the last time we were out that these exist and explained it to her as simply as possible, and she did seem impressed, so I am sure she will appreciate one of her own! She can now thoroughly enjoy her glass or two on occasion, all thanks to this nifty little device, which, conveniently, is small enough to fit in her Chanel handbag! So, if you have a family member or friend who reminds you of my mother-in-law, or just enjoys wine (don't we all?), then this is an ideal gift.




Oh, and before I forget, this item is drip free, so no wine can be spilt on the table or wherever it is poured.
