Christmas Gift Ideas... As Seen on TV!

Christmas Gift Ideas... "As Seen on TV"!

My pal Lisa over at Syncopated Mama chose our #FridayFrivolity theme for this week... "As Seen on TV" items are apparently hot gift items for her family!  ;)  I actually had to do googling to figure out how familiar with this topic I really was... and it turned out to be more than I had thought!

The Clapper -- Ahhh so classic!  My parents had this in their bedroom when I was growing up, and my brother and I thought it was the height of technological innovation!  And, as an added bonus, hugely entertaining.  It was often even entertaining from other parts of the house, hearing my parents clap six or seven times before the recalcitrant light would heed the summons... bahaha!

Pedi-Egg -- This thing really works, yo.  All the shaved skin you have to empty out afterwards can be a little gross, but... it does really work.

Cami-Secret Clip-On Mock Camisoles -- Not so much this one... it pretty much only works with a straight-forward v-neck.  Anything other than that gets complicated quickly.

Perfect Pushup -- My husband bought these after college, used them a few times, and then carried them around in his truck for several years after that...  ;P  But they did seem to be effective!  Just, really really hard.  Looking at Amazon reviews, a lot of people love them and a number of people hate them and claim they can hurt your shoulders, so take that as you will.

Chia Pets  -- I never actually owned a chia pet, but I DID own the Chia brand herb garden, and it grew super well and easily.... it was my very first foray into "gardening" (such that it was) right after college.  Ahhh nostalgia!

Star Shower Motion Laser Lights Projector -- I don't actually own this but one of my neighbors does, and I think it is so cool!  And, um, SO EASY!  No hassling with cords and plugs... just stick it in your yard and flip a switch.  Well obviously it still has to plug in, but still, so simple.  And it looks really pretty and festive too!

Now on to the link-up! :D

Here are some of the places you might see this post partying! 


  1. I love all of these - they pop up regularly around Christmas and I wonder to myself how many people end up with them as their "I couldn't think of anything else to buy" gift! The last one that showers sparkles all over your house seems to be a little less exciting in real life from what I've seen around the neighbourhood :)

  2. When I was up very morning at 5 am with my middle daughter breastfeeding I became totally addicted to infomercials. I came so close to buying the Wen Hair Care System so many times.

  3. I was just thinking about the clapper! Too funny you featured that too.

  4. That is so funny, Sarah Eliza!! I think one of us had a Chia Pet. And I was the proud owner of a Pedi-egg at one time or another. After mistaking the contents for salt once, I gave it up forever.
    (Not a true story!)

  5. Is it bad that the only things on the list I don't already own, I kind of want to buy now. I need a clapper! xD

  6. I wore the cami secret once and then tossed it in a drawer never to be found again. It didn't stay hooked which was annoying.

  7. LOL. That is pretty funny. Thanks for hosting.


I love to connect with new friends online! Please share your thoughts with me! :)
