Don’t Go Wrong This Holiday!

You never want to show your love ones you don’t care about them or their well being, then why half a%# gifts?  Gift them something that is useful! And in honor of useful gifts, this holiday season Quirky wants to look back at amazing inventions that were made with not only creativity, but with a love for making people’s lives easier.

Stem; a product perfectly made for the chef of the family invented by Timothy Houle. Designed to add zest to any meal by simply twisting Stem into any citrus fruit and pushing down on the spraynozzle. No cutting or peeling required, this product does all the hard work for you! After all, the chef still has to do the cooking!

Pluck; created by Mark Fusco a man on a health kick when he came up with Pluck. Like many of your loved ones who are planning to set new health goals this new year, get them a gift inspired by this worthy goal. Pluck helps get the egg whites separated from the yolk quickly and easily. Simply squeeze and release its flexible silicone chamber to extract caloric yolks from the whites. It is also dishwasher safe (Bonus!).

Or a favorite Quirky product like the Pawcet, a product that would make any dog owner (and their pup!) happy. This product allows dogs to get their own stream of fresh, cold drinking water; and who wouldn’t want that? Simply hook it up to your garden hose, your dog adds pressure to the step with his paw, and water is released. Created by Tony Lytle your average dog lover spreading love and simplicity to the lives of dog owners everywhere.

Before grabbing a present on your way to your holiday destinations, this year take the time to think about how a gift may have been designed to make someone’s life easier. Maybe even invent something great for next year and we’ll be talking all about how great you are! Don’t go wrong this holiday season Quirksters.

Let your love one’s know you care, Keep Inventing!

Happy Holidays!
