  • 5 Tech Accessories You Don't Need, But Totally Want

    We probably all consider ourselves pretty technologically savvy at this point. Most of us now own a smartphone whereas circa 2008, the Motorola Razr was one of the most popular phones. Think about it.

    Right now, you probably know about the latest iPhone model, the latest Android operating system KitKat, and the hottest tablet on the market. But what about some of the latest tech accessories?

    I’ve rounded up 5 items that not only help maintain our plugged-in lifestyle, but do it in style. Yes, you don’t need any of them (or maybe you do), but I assure you that you’ll want all of them!

    1. LSTN Troubadour Headphones ($150)

    Tech Accessories | LSTN

    Like guitars, violins and pianos, these headphones are made from wood, which channels a naturally warm and resonant sound. Each pair is individually handcrafted from real, reclaimed wood, available in ebony, cherry, or beech wood. No two pairs are exactly alike, and for each pair sold, LSTN helps restore hearing to a person in need through the Starkey Hearing Foundation.

     

    2. MuseMini Bluetooth Speaker ($29.95)

    Mini Muse | Tech Accessories

    Standing at about two inches tall, this small wireless speaker challenges the notion that bigger is better for audio. Sleek and cylindrical, it’s designed to be portable, and it delivers surprising sound for its size. Just charge via USB for an hour and you get six hours of listening time.

  • The Best Board Games to Play When You're Stuck Indoors

    Searching for the best board games can be overwhelming. If you've ever found yourself browsing aisle, after aisle of endless boxes that claim to be the answer to your family's indoor boredom -- this post is for you. When the cold weather hits, family games can be a great pastime and here at The Grommet, we've found the best board games for you to try. Grommet tested, family approved (plus we're giving you a chance to WIN one).

    Best Board Games

    Squashed - Easy to learn and fun for people of all ages from 6 year olds to grown ups, Squashed was created by Nick Metzler to encourage players to think in three dimensions, strategically positioning themselves to squash their opponents and to avoid getting squashed along the way.

    Colorku - This game uses wooden marbles instead of numbers to solve puzzles. Like Sudoku, the object of ColorKu is to fill a 9x9 grid so that every row and column has nine different colored marbles with no repeats, and each 3x3 grid also has nine different colored marbles with no repeats. The marbles make it easy for players to move the colors around, trying different combinations without constantly erasing.

    Tenzi - It’s not often a new game can be described in just 20 words, but TENZI can: Each player gets 10 dice. The first player who rolls all 10 on the same number and yells “TENZI” wins.

    Gigamic Games - Spatial thinking and tactical decision-making are put to the test in board games from Gigamic. The Gires brothers (Jean-Christoph on left & Stephane) have been making games since the 1970s, and they have stayed true to the original Gigamic mission of creating games and puzzles that are engaging and thought provoking, not mindless entertainment.

    Show me the Kwan! - From a company called Griddly Games comes a fast-paced word game you don’t have to be a spelling bee champion to enjoy. It’s called Show Me the Kwan and it’s as easy to learn as it is fun to play for people of all ages from 8 year olds to grown ups.

    What board game do you think your family would most enjoy? Leave a comment telling us below. We'll select three winners and send them the Grommet game of their choice. Good luck!

    General contest rules: To enter, you must be a U.S. resident and at least 18 years of age. You must leave a comment on this post. No purchase necessary. Winner will be randomly selected and notified via email. Employees, contractors, and the families of employees and contractors of The Grommet  are not eligible to enter. Void where prohibited. Contest will end January 23, 2014 at 11 pm PST.

     

  • Meaningful Gifts Can Come in Really Small Packages

     stocking stuffer ideas

    I've come to realize that people either dread the idea of purchasing stocking stuffers, or look forward to it. Personally, I adore the idea of finding small treasures that will light up faces on Christmas morning. Growing up, Santa always filled my stocking with the smallest (but most thoughtful)  gifts.  But the truth is, most stocking stuffers are not thoughtful at all.

    How many of us give or receive stocking stuffers that appear to be from the grocery store impulse buy section? Does chapstick, beef jerky, and gum sound like your typical stocking stuffers?  We can do better. Just because a gift is small doesn't mean it has to be from the gas station or impersonal. This year consider filling their stockings with meaningful gifts they will be as thrilled to receive as the gifts they unwrap from under the tree. Giving a meaningful gift of any size will put a smile on their face (and yours as well).

  • Making Gift-giving Personal Again: Gift Ideas for Grandma

    In the 21st century, it has become increasingly easy to buy, well, pretty much anything. With the click of a button or a quick trip to the mall, holiday shopping can be done in a matter of minutes. Yet this kind of modern-day shopping can often turn gift-giving into an impersonal, expressionless activity. In the pursuit of the perfect gift, we drive to big-box retailers or go online and buy a nameless, faceless product that usually doesn’t feel as special as the person we’re giving it to. It’s unlikely a consumer knows where something is made or by whom, or anything about what makes the gift unique. In a recent conversation with my grandmother, I asked her how different shopping is now than it was for her many years ago. Her response went something like this:

    “Do you remember hearing stories about the milkman making a daily delivery right to the front door? That actually happened. When we needed to buy a gift, we walked into town and went to the local family store. No big supermarkets, no shopping malls. I knew those people by first name.”

    In conversations with both my grandparents, I’ve detected a certain nostalgia for this time - when knowing a maker by name was commonplace. With the holidays upon us, it’s the perfect time to rekindle that maker-consumer relationship and make gifting a little more special for grandma this year. Whether she needs a problem solver, wants to be pampered, or would love a sweet something from her grandchildren, she’ll know that her gift was made by a real person with a story to share. And the best part is: she’ll know them all by name.

    To Make Grandma’s Life a Little Easier:

    La LOOP Eyeglass Holder: Elizabeth Faraut, entrepreneur and mother of three, founded La LOOP because she couldn’t find a stylish eyeglass accessory. Equal parts function and fashion, Grandma will never fish around for misplaced glasses again.

    RainRaps Waterproof Wrap: Designed by two longtime friends, Stacy Struminger and Rachel Teyssier, RainRaps were created for practical and stylish women. With no fussy sleeves or zippers, Grandma can easily slip on this piece when skies get stormy.

  • Men Tell All: How to Pick Good Gifts for Guys

    good gifts for guys: bottle opening sunglasses

    Brewsees bottle opening sunglasses are one of the "coolest" Grommets around.

    -------------------------------

    Let’s face it. Even if you think you know how to shop for men, what they want to receive is probably not what you think.  Men can be surprisingly particular, unpredictable and downright difficult to shop for when it comes to gift giving.

    But don’t throw in the towel and pick up a gift card just yet, we're here to help. This week we decided to do some investigating and go straight to the source.  We asked some of our favorite Grommet guys for tips we can use when shopping for them.  Get your pen and paper ready because you may need to take notes.

    Question 1: Do you like to be surprised when given a gift or do you always want to know what you’re about to open?

    Majority Says:  No surprises. However our Business Analyst, Ian, did say he likes surprises once in a while. “I like being surprised, but only if it’s a really good gift. I typically buy myself items that I want. I don't wait around for someone to buy them for me.”

    Take Away: When in doubt, don’t surprise. He’ll be just as appreciative even if he knows what's inside the box.
