  • And the Oscar Goes To...Our Grommet Makers!

    The Grommet | Unique Gift Ideas

    Here at The Grommet, we provide our Makers with the right platform to take their businesses to the next level. When a Maker launches on The Grommet, they get much more than their name in lights. They receive the support of our community (YOU) who lifts them up and offers the recognition that will propel them into the next stages of their business. We see this time and time again, and it never gets old. Whether in a press mention, an award or simply a shout out for a job well done, we take great pride in knowing we have helped change the trajectory of a business.  

    So you can imagine our delight when three of our Grommet Makers were selected to be placed in this year's Oscars goodie bags. The stars who don't win this year will have the privilege of taking home the bags with the Academy's wishes of "better luck next year".  This year's 'swag bags' will include everything from high-end walking tours of Japan to our very own Grommet problem solvers. Not only will our Makers have the honor of knowing their favorite celebrities took home their products, but the press mentions are worth their weight in gold. Last year, one of our Grommet Makers, Gleener, who participated in the bags saw her web traffic increase by over 800% in the days after the event. To say she was thrilled is an understatement.

    And now for our Grommets who will be in this year's bags:

    DrainWig, The Grommet
    DrainWig - This handy clog preventer will allow any celebrity to really let their hair down.


    Objects With Purpose, The Grommet

     Objects with a Purpose - These natural, wearable candles will be sure to help them relax post-Oscars night.

    R. Murphy Knives, The Grommet


    R. Murphy Knives - Each of these knives is handmade in Ayer, Massachusetts. The precision and quality that goes into them is un-matched. Owning these knives is a privilege in its own right and these celebs are lucky winners!

    To get in the Oscar spirit, we've decided to give YOU a chance to win your own Grommet swag bag!

  • 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).
