Valentine’s Day Gifts for the Woman Who Has Everything https://filigreemonograms.com/valentines-day-gifts-for-the-woman-who-has-everything/ Sat, 15 Jan 2022 01:00:29 +0000 https://filigreemonograms.com/valentines-day-gifts-for-the-woman-who-has-everything/ Well, it’s officially that time of year again, folks.

Well, it’s officially that time of year again, folks. Valentine’s Day 2022 is just around the corner, which means it’s time to start thinking about gifts to give your sweetheart this February 14th. The good old Hallmark party can be tricky when it comes to picking out Valentine’s Day gifts for the woman who has everything (or any SO who stubbornly swears they want nothing), but thankfully, there are plenty of non-cheesy gifts they’ll love and most importantly, don’t already own.

Chocolate and romantic flower bouquets are obvious (and easy) choices when it comes to V-Day gifts, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re safe choices. Frankly, those cliché V-Day dates require very little thought or planning, and that’s usually painfully obvious for the gift in question. While a candy box and red roses are great *add-ons* to any Valentine’s Day gift, I suggest hanging something extra from them so it at least does. see as if you had thought of their gift beforehand (although you certainly hadn’t).

Although we still have plenty of time before Valentine’s Day arrives, with the supply chain issues facing the country, it is advisable to start shopping early this year if you want to ensure that the gift arrives in time. Rather than taking a fruitless excursion on Google trying to find a non-generic giveaway among the endless pink and red virtual aisles, allow me to offer some solid suggestions to save you time and frustration.

From next-gen makeup mirrors with Bluetooth functionality to an anti-wrinkle pillowcase that’ll make her feel like a modern-day Sleeping Beauty, I’ve rounded up some Cupid-approved Valentine’s Day gifts for the woman who has everything to consider this year. It was nothing!

HigherDOSE infrared sauna blanket

Like a portable sauna, this detoxifying and beautifying infrared blanket helps the body rid itself of toxins (great for hangovers and general well-being) and promotes the release of endorphins for a “natural high”. Plus, its ultra-portable design means you can take it with you for on-the-go sweat sessions (it folds up and fits almost in suitcases). Described as “like a warm hug” and a “lifesaver”, HigherDOSES’ Infrared Sauna Blanket is a much better gift than giving her a one-time trip to the spa.

Take it from a husband who titled his review ‘Happy Wife, Happy Life’: “My wife has been using this blanket almost every day since Christmas, she loves it. She no longer has to go pay for $70 sessions. dollars at her sweatshop,” the reviewer said.

Caudalie Premier Cru Anti-Aging Serum

This recently launched anti-aging serum from cult French brand, Caudalie, literally firms skin in three minutes. Believe me, if you’re worried about giving her skin care for fear of offending her, don’t be. She will love this magic serum.

Glamcor Riki Loves Riki Bluetooth Skinny Mirror

This premium makeup mirror not only features customizable HD daylight settings, but it’s also designed with a Bluetooth-powered selfie function so it can take cute photos, videos, TikToks, and more. hands free. This influencer-approved mirror is one of the most coveted gifts of 2022 — she’s highly unlikely not to fall in love with it.

“I received this mirror as a gift, and once you have it, you can’t go back to making [your] makeup without it! Obsessed!” wrote a Revolve reviewer.

Adam & Eve Lovense Lush 3 Bullet Vibrator

If you and your SO are looking to spice things up in the bedroom, why not give the gift of increased orgasm with a luxury vibrator. Best of all, Lovense Lush 3 is Bluetooth-enabled (with the app) so you can even control the vibrations when you and your lover are a long distance away (or in the same room, of course.)

“Received as a Christmas present for my wife. She loved the random control experience! We had a wonderful time playing games while she wore it. She said it was very comfortable to wear during a long time!” wrote a review of Adam and Eve.

Limited Edition Beauty Pie SLEEPEASY™ Silk Pillowcase

This luxurious 100% mulberry silk pillowcase not only looks great, but it’s also a boon to preventing breakage and split ends and even preventing fine lines and wrinkles. Even better, you can save $10 on your first order when you become a Beauty Pie member. Redeem Code THEDAILYBEAST10 at checkout to redeem!

“These are the best silk pillows. I have three that I alternate so I never part with them. I even take one when I travel, they are big enough to slip on any hotel pillow. Divine,” wrote a Beauty Pie reviewer.

Mott & Bow cashmere jumper

All in all, it goes without saying – you simply can’t go wrong with cashmere. Sweater time is still in full swing, and if you love both luxury and comfort, look no further than Mott & Bow’s versatile Cashmere V-Neck Sweater.

Victoria’s Secret Satin Longline Pajama Set

There’s nothing like a matching pair of silky pajamas to make you want to snuggle up in bed. These iconic longline pajamas from none other than Victoria’s Secret come in a wide range of Valentine’s Day-approved festive colors and patterns, including the pale pink polka dot pair pictured above. She will faint.

Forget the Filler Lawless Overnight Lip Plumping Mask

For the ultimate soft, plump baby lips, Lawless Beauty’s Forget the Filler range is my go-to. You can’t go wrong with the range’s original Forget The Filler Plumping Glosses, but the new Forget the Filler Plumping Night Mask is an added treat she’ll love.

“I’ve been using this lip mask non-stop for a few days. I love how my lips feel after applying. It’s not super sticky and it doesn’t dry out my lips at all. My lips have the looking so much fuller and plumper after use too!” a Sephora reviewer raves.

Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream

In case you haven’t heard, it’s ~the~ most coveted skincare product around, and yes, it’s worth every penny. I don’t know a single woman who doesn’t already own or want this premium anti-aging moisturizer. Even though she already has it in her skincare line, she’ll be grateful you stocked her stash with a backup.

“I bought it because of the hype and really didn’t want it to live up to expectations because of the price, but honestly it’s so good – my skin never looks better than when I use this cream,” a Space NK reviewer said.

Dermelect Lip & Lash Max Duo

Down $104

What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than with a fuller pout and extra voluminous lashes for ultimate punching power? The Dermelect Cosmeceuticals beauty line is powered by clinical-grade active ingredients – no fluff or gimmicky marketing – just visible results. This box contains two of their bestsellers: the Smooth Lip Volumizer and the XL Lash Volumizer.

Gooseberry Intimates My Crush Plunge Bra

If you have a vague idea of ​​what bra and underwear sizes your partner is wearing, do them a favor and get them a sexy (but oh so comfy) set of Gooseberry lingerie. What I love about Gooseberry’s bras and underwear is that they’re both designed with adjustable straps for a custom fit that won’t dig in or pinch (yes, even the panties !). Discover the matching briefs here.

Brunette The Label Not Your Boyfriend Crew Neck Sweatshirt

My fiancé and I are obsessed with this dusty pink sweatshirt. I’m obsessed with the chic colorway and the cute graphic (I’m blonde because that’s my hair color) and he’s blown away by how incredibly soft the fabric is. Of course, I am also impressed with its comfort. I never thought I’d be in love with a sweatshirt, but here I am. If your SO loves graphic tees, grab her one of these chic sweatshirts from Instagram-famous brand Brunette The Label.

Michael Todd Sonic Sculpt Face & Body Contouring Roller

This lifting, plumping and contouring facial roller uses both ice therapy and heat to help instantly lift any skin tone. Crafted with two medical-grade stainless steel obsidian globes, this anti-aging, anti-tarnish device is a must-have for any beauty lover.

Bath & Body Works Pure Wonder Gift Set

Bath & Body Works has one of the most loyal followers of any brand I know – and for good reason. Whether it’s nostalgic scents from the past (they often bring back “retired” items) or their new fragrance collections, it’s pretty hard to go wrong with a Bath & Body Works gift set.

Last week, customers at the UPS Store in Seattle’s Interbay neighborhood got a pretty good demonstration of what the global supply chain looks like when you try to make it work backwards.

The first Monday of the year marks the traditional start of the holiday return season, which this year is set to break records for returned purchases – and by late afternoon the line of UPS customers carrying boxes has almost faded away.

“Oh my god – wow,” said Erin Metzger, half a dozen returns in hand, as she watched the crowds and towers of Jenga-like outgoing packages behind the counter. “I was not expecting that at all.”

“It comes in waves,” said employee Rebecca Yazzie. “It’ll be quiet for a while, then we’ll have a ton of people at a time. “

Those waves were also being felt across town at Sip and Ship, a coffee and letterbox service combo in Greenwood, where vacation returns are already 20-25% ahead of last year. It’s just “for now,” owner Diana Naramore warned as she stood next to an 8-foot stack of US Postal Service returns. “I mean, we’re just getting started.”

While January has always been comeback season, COVID-19 has oversized the trend. Of the $ 222 billion spent on online vacation shopping this season, 30%, or nearly $ 67 billion, will be returned, according to CBRE, a commercial real estate company that also focuses on retail logistics. That’s an increase of 13% from 2020 and 40% from 2019.

This additional burden is causing friction for shippers, many of whom were already struggling with staff shortages amid the pandemic.

It also puts pressure on retailers, especially small physical stores that have come online to survive COVID but often cannot afford the generous return policies popularized by mega-players like Amazon and Walmart.

“If we pay all the shipping costs and then have to pay for this item to be returned, then we have to pay extra to send in a new item … it’s not sustainable,” says Brittney Geleynse of Clover Toys at Ballard, who like many small retailers had to review their returns policy as their internet sales flourished.

In some ways, this year’s surge in returns is a story of the untimely arrival of omicron, which has driven many holiday shoppers away from brick-and-mortar retail to e-commerce, experts say.

But it’s also a story of how consumers are now using e-commerce to hedge their bets.

Many holiday shoppers, fearing supply chain shortages, have intentionally overbought rather than risk not having gifts on time, according to an Oracle Retail survey. It almost stalled higher yields this season. “Everyone who’s bought online this year expects to return at least three things,” said Chris McDonald, UPS business development manager for the Seattle area, citing industry data.

But even before the holidays, consumers returned online purchases two to three times more often than in-person purchases, according to industry data. This is in part because shopping online is more likely to be unsuitable or unsatisfactory for shoppers.

But it’s also because some retailers have made online returns so easy that consumers find overbought a perfectly acceptable way to sample products.

In addition to free or nearly free shipping, many large retailers have contracts with UPS and FedEx and others to repackage customer returns.

Roger Low, owner of the Interbay UPS Store, says many customers arrive with returns in plastic bags or nothing; Last week, someone dropped off a shirt, which a staff member dutifully folded, wrapped and placed in a trash can.

Incentives like these have led to some excesses. After last summer’s heat wave, Seattle-area shoppers returned “nearly 30” air conditioners to the Interbay store alone, Low said. Buyers have also attempted to return fully assembled electric bikes, sales of which have skyrocketed during the pandemic. “The driver will show up and there will be just, like, ‘Here’s a bike, you have to take this bike,’” McDonald said of UPS.

But mostly, the easy returns have encouraged what retail analysts call “bracketing” – buying multiples of an item of different sizes or styles and returning what doesn’t. does not work.

Bracketing was a thing long before COVID, but it appears to have jumped during the pandemic as shoppers avoid the risk of making purchases in person. Low regularly sees customers returning multiples of the same swimsuit, for example, or “six pairs of baby shoes of different colors or sizes.”

Whether supercharged returns survive the pandemic is unclear. While buyers love convenience, these commodity providers have mixed feelings.

Drop-off points charge a nominal handling fee from shippers – Sip and Ship, for example, receives 50 cents for each UPS and FedEx return, but nothing for USPS. Yet while this rarely covers overtime or insurance, many are reluctant to charge extra for a service that many consumers now seem to see as a constitutional right.

“Most people have gotten used to it, but it’s amazing how many people are going very, very dollar-dollar,” said Sabrina Rinderle, owner of Queen Anne Dispatch, of the charges that courier services / gift shops have started charging for USPS packages.

The biggest setback, paradoxically, may come from retailers. This year, they will lose $ 33 per returned item, up 59% from last year, according to an estimate from Optoro, an expert in so-called reverse logistics.

This is partly because many returns are reduced and sold in secondary markets; but it also reflects the ineffectiveness of attempts to push products back up the supply chain: e-commerce returns typically require more work and space than original e-commerce shipments, according to CBRE.

“The supply chain, in general, was not designed to go backwards,” says John Morris, who heads CBRE’s logistics services line.

This is one of the reasons some retailers simply cancel lower value returns. “This year for the first time… I called for the return label and they said, ‘Keep it,’” said Amy Doerzbacher, who was dropping off a return at Sip and Ship.

Other returns are simply rejected: Around 2.9 million tonnes of returns went to landfill in 2020, according to Optoro, and that number is expected to increase this year, adds Morris of CRBE.

Some industry experts believe retailers will have no choice but to try to weaken the referral business model – for example, by encouraging customers to bring e-commerce returns to physical retail locations. Some UPS Store officials say some large retailers are already selectively increasing return shipping costs for “serial turners”.

Some small retailers, on the other hand, are taking a more proactive approach – trying to sell things that customers won’t want to return in the first place, but also carefully setting expectations for returns.

If a product isn’t right for you, “we’ll work with you,” said Devynn Patterson of Marakesh Leather, a Seattle-based company whose online sales fell from 5% to about 35% of its total during the pandemic. “But we’re not in a position where we can just allow people to wear merch and decide they don’t like it and give it back.”

“We are doing everything we can to stay competitive,” Patterson added. But “we’re trying to make it clear that, ‘Hey, we’re a small family business.’ ”

High school and high school students at Wilcox-Hildreth Public School were able to deliver Christmas gifts and letters to residents of Holdrege Memorial Homes. It was the first time many residents could see visitors in nearly two years.

BY ASHLEY BEBENSEE, Hub Staff Editor

WILCOX – After nearly two years with few to no visitors to the facility, Wilcox-Hildreth Public School and Holdrege Memorial Homes were able to perform a Christmas miracle for the residents of the nursing home.

Students presented gifts and letters to each resident shortly before Christmas at the Holdrege nursing home.

“The residents were just amazed that someone thought of them. It was a pretty cool experience that they got to present their gift to a resident, ”said Amy Rademaker, Director of Operations and Volunteer Coordinator at Holdrege Memorial Homes.






Student and resident of Holdrege Memorial Homes

A student from Wilcox-Hildreth Public School presents a gift to Ron Schescke, a resident of Holdrege Memorial Homes, shortly before Christmas. Each Wilcox-Hildreth student gave gifts and wrote letters to residents of Memorial Homes, Christian Homes – Holdrege, Good Samaritan Society in Alma, and some elderly residents in their community.


Wilcox-Hildreth Public School, courtesy


The idea of ​​getting students to spread joy to nursing home residents started with Councilor 7-12 Hana Mach and Elementary Councilor Kelly Simmons. The duo wanted to find an activity that each student in the school could participate in to help others. They knew how affected nursing home residents were by the pandemic and wanted to cheer themselves up.

They contacted Memorial Homes, Christian Homes – Holdrege, and Good Samaritan Society in Alma to share their ideas for creating gifts and writing letters to residents.

In order to personalize the gifts for the residents, the school sent establishments a questionnaire to find out the residents’ favorite dishes, their hobbies, their former careers, etc. Each student received a small tray to decorate as they see fit. Elder Chase Johnson has learned that his assigned resident loves volleyball and football at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. So he painted the “N” of Nebraska in the middle of his room.

Albany’s interfaith party triumphs over holiday fire, brawl and blues https://filigreemonograms.com/albanys-interfaith-party-triumphs-over-holiday-fire-brawl-and-blues/ Sun, 02 Jan 2022 16:04:24 +0000 https://filigreemonograms.com/albanys-interfaith-party-triumphs-over-holiday-fire-brawl-and-blues/ ALBANY – Devout Muslim, nurse and gourmet cook, Tyhisha Ghaffar-Adjei is known as the “Queen” in the neighborhoods of Albany she helps.

ALBANY – Devout Muslim, nurse and gourmet cook, Tyhisha Ghaffar-Adjei is known as the “Queen” in the neighborhoods of Albany she helps. For the past 14 years, she has celebrated her March birthday and December religious holidays by hosting huge lunches at one of Albany’s low-income apartment towers.

This year, she felt drawn to the 23-story Capitol Green Apartments at 400 Central Ave. In Google reviews, residents praised the housekeeping staff, modest rents, and security staff. But they are worried about drug dealers, drug addicts and prostitutes nearby. When Ghaffar-Adjei chatted with locals, she learned how hard they were financially affected by the pandemic. Many were worried because they had fallen behind in rents.

All of his talents and friendships came in handy on a day when chaos and danger gripped the apartment complex. The memorable party was a triumph over a fire and a fight.

It is a tribute to Ghaffar-Adjei’s reputation as an activist and her networking power that when she sends her bat signal in the sky, the heroes volunteer to help, including a volunteer. nicknamed Batman. Volunteers for her December 18 festival are a multiracial, interfaith who’s-who of activists, including GROW’s Kristin Hernandez (who helped raise funds for $ 10 gift cards for each apartment) to David Pena of Kids Club Discovery Center that delivered meals, and there’s former SUNY Chef Keith McGee.

In 2007, Ghaffar-Adjei founded his charity, Guardians of Al-Fitrah, named after the state of purity that Muslims believe humans have when they are born. She chose not to apply for 501 (c) 3 status in order to have more freedom of decision. For example, when the leadership of Capitol Green didn’t return her calls, they decided that meant they wouldn’t mind if she moved the December 18 party headquarters to the 23rd floor.

Thanks to McGee, the food was ready. Raised as a Christian, he met Ghaffar-Adjei in 2010 as he sought a religious belief that would link him to a higher purpose. Ghaffar-Adjei told him how his mother revered Malcolm X when he preached in Harlem before and after his break with the Nation of Islam. She embraced the Quran’s mandate to save the elderly from loneliness and help the poor, blending activism and Muslim faith.

“I was up all night with my mom and aunt cooking chicken curry, fried chicken when Keith saved me, “she said.

McGee is a very busy man, the academic director of the New York Black Elks, where he is busy running the annual student speaking competition (which Martin Luther King Jr. won as a teenager in Georgia). McGee also has his own business, International Comfort B Enterprise, to run.

McGee is working on launching a food hall in Albany for black and minority cooks who can’t afford their own restaurants or food trucks. He wants to buy an old Key Bank building near the Armory for its location. He is hoping Mayor Kathy Sheehan could allocate a fraction of the $ 85.2 million in federal relief funds to Albany for his plan.

But when Ghaffar-Adjei called, he momentarily put everything else aside.

“I thought, God willing, that I would, make it delicious, drop the lunch boxes, and always meet my own deadlines,” McGee said.

Miraculously, the packed lunches were ready and Steven Figueroa, an activist for food insecurity in Troy, donated enough artisan bread to feed the skyscraper.

And then … chaos


At 1:00 p.m., the volunteers were busy loading the lunch boxes onto carts when they smelled smoke.
Law student Gianabou Diallo helped deliver lunches and gift bags to the apartments.

“There were a lot of disabled people, old people,” Diallo remembers. “Some couldn’t believe we were giving away free meals, free $ 10 gift cards. They kept asking if they had to do something to win one.

Then a six-alarm fire interrupted the party. “Someone set garbage on fire in the garbage chute,” recalls Ghaffar-Adjei, exasperated.

Volunteer Paul Collins-Hackett, known as “Batman” by the children of Albany he mentors, wears a gray hoodie with the words “Save the City” on it instead of a black cape. Normally, he distributes free books to children or helps them learn a skill like making movies. At the party, he helped evacuate the upper floors of the building. When the sprinklers soaked the hallways and the elevator stopped, he helped the residents down the stairs.

Albany Fire Chief Joseph Gregory said firefighters responded within three minutes. The fire is still under investigation.
“The sprinklers worked as they should, thanks to the building maintenance crew,” said Gregory.

Small children, annoyed by the alarms, were quickly enchanted by the huge red trucks. Some firefighters stopped to chat with the children. Soon the kids were discussing the fire trucks as a highlight of the party, like a pony ride or a balloon drop.

“We get a lot of rookies that way, (adults) who saw firefighters in action when they were kids at home and decide to do it when they grow up,” Gregory said fondly. then added quickly, “Of course we prefer to recruit recruits through a presentation.

Once the fire had been brought under control, the elevators had to be stopped periodically. Teenage volunteers were going up and down the stairs to deliver meals.

Then a bloodied man came out screaming from his apartment. He told the volunteers that an angry woman had tried to kill him. Volunteers helped him join the doctors who arrived with the firefighters.

The spirit remains

Ghaffar-Adjei calls his annual December festivals “interfaith celebrations,” not Christmas. She wants to nourish the participants spiritually and nutritionally. She invited Albany County lawmaker Sam Fein to speak with residents about Judaism. He stayed to help wrap gift bags with personal care items donated by the mayor’s office.

She invited the bishop of the missionary church Elijah Avery Comithier, famous for his patrols of pastors who aim to quell nighttime violence on the streets, to speak about the meaning of Christmas.

“Frosty and Rudolph were all over this building; I did not see the decorations of the Baby Jesus, ”he joked dryly. “Look, I understand this is a commercial holiday… Nowhere in the Bible does Jesus order his disciples to celebrate his birthday. But if we are to have this vacation, people might behave more like honoring the way Jesus lived.

Although he is encouraged by charitable efforts like Ghaffar-Adjei’s, he feels disheartened by the greed and bad humor he has observed in the capital region. He helps out with Toys for Tots and has discovered that some families are going to several toy distributions in search of the hottest action figures or “Bluey” playsets. He’s seen people pushing to be on the front line at free holiday parties and take multiple servings.

Comithier had to leave early in the event. He might have been reassured that the Christmas spirit still thrives if he had met the winners of Ghaffar-Adjei’s “golden ticket”.

The tickets were decorated with gold leaf to resemble Willy Wonka’s passes that allowed winners to enter his magical chocolate factory. Ghaffar-Adjei’s secret surprise was that she hid a $ 100 bill under the gold leaf.

The first randomly chosen winner was an elderly woman raising two preteens. She came to the door using a metal walker. The little boy and the little girl ran up behind her to greet their visitors.

The woman received a brightly colored tin box. The children applauded and the woman warmly thanked the volunteers. Ghaffar-Adjei gently explained that the prize was inside the box. The winner opened it and looked at the golden ticket.

The kids clapped, exclaiming how pretty the ticket was. Ghaffar-Adjei later described the children as an example of fitrah, so innocently selfless that they were delighted with a piece made to look like an imaginary prize in a children’s book.

“Look below,” she urged.

They saw the $ 100 bill. The children and their babysitter gasped then hugged, thanking the volunteers. On this interfaith holiday celebration, the generosity and gentleness were easy to see.

Bapuji and GK take her aside and ask her to accept his love for Anuj. They say when they both love each other, which keeps him from moving forward. Anu says mukku, she wants the differences between Anuj and Mukku to be cleared up first. Bapuji says the problems will be there for life, she shouldn’t wait for good luck and Christmas is the best time to express her feelings. Anu thinks they are right, even Mr. Shah said the same.

Some people may think of gift cards as a sort of dodge when it comes to gifts, but I’ve always been happy to get one for Christmas or birthdays. It’s like free money that I don’t have to feel guilty about not spending it on something responsible. If you’ve found a $ 25 gift card in your bottom this year, you can still use it to cut a big chunk of a bigger purchase. But there are also plenty of nifty gadgets you can buy in the under $ 25 range, especially since there are some good end-of-year deals out there right now.

Here are a few of our favorite picks to help you get the most out of this $ 25 gift card, with options on Amazon, Best Buy, Target, and Walmart.

Anker

Most newer phones support wireless charging, so why not start using the new technology with a cheap wireless charger. This Anker model supports all phones with wireless charging, with the added bonus of magnetically hooking up to iPhones equipped with MagSafe. Definitely worth grabbing a hold of, especially at just $ 16.

Bandai America

Tamagotchi have been around for almost a quarter of a century and they never really went out of style. These electronic pets – which you wash, feed, and ‘train’ – are equally good for young Pokemon fans and older nostalgic people. There are over 30 different colors and designs, so grab your favorite or start building your collection now.

Tile

Between your phone, wallet, backpack, or purse, when you leave the house, there’s a good chance you’ll be carrying a lot more than $ 25 worth of stuff with you. This Bluetooth tracking beacon is a great way to make sure you never have to worry about losing track of your belongings, and it’s much more affordable than having to replace any lost item. If you’re within 250 feet of your Tile tracker, you can use the app to activate a loud ringer to locate it, and if you’re far away, you can check the app for its most recent location on a map. And if someone else finds your lost items, the QR code on the back can link them directly to your contact details so they can get them back from you. Just note that Tile is now a subsidiary of Life 360, which would subsidize the low prices of its products by selling the resulting tracking data.

Chef

Air fryers have been all the rage this year, and there’s a good reason for that. This mid-sized model can reach temperatures of up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit in minutes, cooking food in a fraction of the time of a conventional oven or deep fryer. And the removable, dishwasher-safe basket and tray also makes cleanup easy. Granted, at $ 30 it’s a bit more than the $ 25 cap, but given its current $ 50 cut, it was too good not to include it here.
