Where To Find Cool Gadgets - CoolGift - Unique Gift Ideas

Hi There..... Are you looking for some unique gift ideas?

Yes? Great because I would like to tell you some more about a site filled with cool gadgets. No? You never know when you might need some inspiration, so sit down and stay before you make me mad. 😈

Oh my, I almost forgot that it's impossible for you to make me mad because I already am a mad old lady. πŸ˜‚

Then again, perhaps I am more of a sad old lady, because with the price of gas and electricity running up at the same pace, who can afford anything? 😨

Will we need those unique gift ideas or even be able to hunt for cool gifts? They might come to haunt us in our dreams. 😱

I can imagine dreams of walking in large shops with lots of gifts. Then every time you want to grab something, an enormous price tag almost falls on your head and you have to duck every time to avoid it. 😡

That would be quite a nightmare, but what would you think about affordable quality gifts? Sounds great, doesn't it? 😎

CoolGift sent me 2 cool gadgets for my honest opinion. 😍

CoolGift History

It started in 2007 with the name iGadgets.be. This successful project continued 2 years later in the Netherlands with the name iCadeau.nl. Germany and France quickly followed.

In 2015, we expanded all over Western Europe, so we switched to the more international name: www.coolgift.com.

CoolGift Service

Because we want to provide our customers with the maximum amount of information about the gifts on display, fun brief articles, pictures, specifications, videos, and customer reviews describe each product clearly.

Through the website, visitors can make purchases in a pleasant, transparent, and safe way, and track the handling and shipping of their order in an orderly fashion right up to the moment of delivery.

B2B

Next to private customers, we regularly ship to companies as well. Thanks to our partner company in the Far East, and through direct contacts with manufacturers all over the world, we can match each product to the right purchasing channels. If you want fast delivery, we can rely on our own well-stocked warehouse.

Our range of products is particularly well suited for promotional gadgets & business gifts, starting at 50 up to +10 000 pieces.

Rocky Dressing Gown

Bathroom fashion for men with a macho complex. You won't see it on the catwalk in Milan soon, but this bathrobe has an Italian touch. For those who have seen the film Rocky, the caption “Italian Stallion” will probably also sound familiar.

Hum “Eye of the tiger” as you get ready to step into the ring… uh, sorry, in the tub. Knock dirt and stress off. Just wipe with a sponge after the first round and you're ready to go.

For movie buffs or those who might simply be drawn to the lettering on the back, this Rocky robe is by far the softest boxing experience.

My opinion on the Rocky Dressing Gown

This could be a fun surprise if you are looking for unique gift ideas for a Rocky fan. I bet lots of people have seen the Rocky movies, and are familiar with the phrase on the back of the robe. 😊

It looks exactly as pictured. At first, it appeared to be on the thin side, but once fitted, you absolutely feel the warmth of it. I made someone here at home thrilled with this nice and soft robe. 😍

Alarm clock with radio function

It not only recharges your batteries after a night of sleep, but it also charges those of your smartphone. Simply put your phone on the alarm clock. Your smartphone must support Qi technology to make use of this function. Most of today's smartphones that support wireless charging support this. If your phone does not support this technology? Then you simply charge it with the USB cable.

The clock radio is an alarm clock with a radio function. You choose whether an alarm signal wakes you up or your favorite radio station. In addition, we equipped the alarm clock with a dual alarm function. That means you can set the alarm not solely for yourself, but also for your partner, boyfriend, girlfriend, or whoever sleeps next to you! You can also adjust the brightness of the display.

My opinion on the Alarm clock

A half year ago, my alarm clock died. We threw it away, but never got a new one. Who needs one when you have a cell phone with an alarm function, right? 😜

Duh, wrong, of course. Do you know how annoying it is to look at the time on your phone when you are half asleep? I can't help it. When I wake up in the middle of the night, which happens often, I want to know what the time is. 😦

What could be easier than an alarm clock? Oh my, I have never been looking forward to waking up in the night as much as tonight, and if the light bothers you, you can always dim it a little or completely. πŸ˜‰

Hope you like my blog.....Until next time.....Have a nice day

Interview with Jewelry Designer Eleanor Lecocq

Hi There..... Would you agree that it's time to share another jewelry designer interview?

Picture provided by Eleanor

How about I answer the question for you? Yes, it is high time. I have kept you waiting long enough. Isn't it great, and so easy to agree with yourself? 😁

I have never liked conflicts. As a highly sensitive person and peace-loving individual, I try my best to avoid upsetting those around me. 😊

That includes you, so I'd say, "well done", and give myself a pad on the back. That jewelry designer interview will get published, no matter what. πŸ˜ƒ

Life can be easy if you just let it. What's the point of stressing if you can avoid it? My mom used to tell me, "Maak je niet dik, dun is de mode". 😊

That's a hard one to translate for you (don't get fat, because thin is in fashion), but it kinda means don't let it get to you, don't fuss. πŸ˜‰

Isn't that the best advice ever? So don't let me upset you, but just keep on reading about this interesting jewelry designer. 😍

What are your name, function, and the company you work for?  

Eleanor Lecocq, I’m an attorney and content creator, and owner of ElleFlorence.com fine jewelry.

How old are you?

33

What kind of work do you do, or what are you studying to be? 

I’m a transactional corporate attorney, which means I’m an advisor to businesses of all sizes seeking to buy or sell their business or raise financing to achieve their goals. 

What made you decide to become a Jewelry Designer?

Jewelry design and law were my two dream careers, so I pursued both and apprenticed as a jewelry designer at a young age. 

For many years it was a hobby, but eventually, I seized the day and launched my line of modern freshwater, Tahitian and Akoya pearl jewelry.

Is fashion important to you? Why? 

Fashion is important to me personally as a form of creative expression, to balance my analytical side. 

Being a fashion business owner is important to me because I am so proud to help other women feel polished and professional, but still express their unique style in the workplace and beyond.

What are your successes, and how did you achieve them?

I feel very blessed to have attracted a community of smart, savvy women who I look up to online through my YouTube channel, Elle Florence. 

I’ve kept it going for a decade, and my life has changed a lot, but I’ve always been grateful for their kindness and interest in my creative pursuits while I work full time.

Is the name of the Brand important to you when you buy clothing?

No, quality is. Sometimes fine workmanship goes with a brand, such as well respected fine leather talented designers, but often it does not. Small businesses put a level of love and care in their designs that are hard to scale.

Describe your personal style of clothing?

Romantic and classic with fearless color. 

How did you find your personal style? Do you have a signature look? 

I have definitely borrowed from my mom and grandmother in terms of classic style. I love the look of a sleek cashmere sweater with my modern pearl jewelry and a chunky block heel in the fall, winter, and spring with beautiful jewel-tone colors. 

Do you have an influence on other people’s clothing style?

I don’t seek to be an influencer, but by producing content that shares things I love, I’ve done so. When I’m tagged in a photo where I see cashmere, Ponte pants, and pearls, I know I have a like-minded friend I haven’t met, who has seen my content!

What are in your eyes the best trends at the moment?

I love the empire waists and romantic style right now. DΓ΄en is doing it beautifully with dresses, for example. If you stick to the less ruffly pieces, these dresses will last for many seasons. 

What are in your eyes the worst trends at the moment?

I feel absolutely done with big ruffles and bows on clothing, but it persists. Anything else that’s too fussy to be comfortable or wearable in real life is a miss for me. 

What kind of fashion advice would you give us?

Buy quality pieces that will last for years, not months. For example, get solid gold or gold-filled jewelry, not gold-plated. The latter’s electroplating wears off quickly and is not a good price-to-quality ratio. 

I’ve gotten good at online shopping–follow your instincts and add things to your basket when you shop online, and before you check out, rank them in order of favorite to least favorite. 

I usually remove my least favorite before checking out to avoid impulse buying.

Who is your style icon and why?

My grandmother always put effort into her appearance, even when she felt unwell, and took genuine joy in it. I think watching her get ready has infused everything I design!

Is there something else you would like to share with us?

Find me at ElleFlorence on IG, YT, or add the .com to check out my jewelry!

Thanks, Eleanor, for filling in my questions. I love you picked your grandmother as a style icon. Oh, by the way, congrats on your engagement. 😘
