My Top Picks From The 2013 International Home + Housewares Show

This is my 4th year at the show, and you all know how much I love to show you the newest and best items out there.  In no specific order, here are some of the cool things I got to see and play with at the show!:


This is the Neato. It is literally the coolest vaccum you have ever seen. Seriously. It vacuums all by itself. You can program it too so you don’t even have to be home when it vacuums. It is that awesome.


This Blueair Air Purifier makes my list, because well, I am allergic to life itself (I have the allergy tests to prove it!). I think this is cool product because you just wave your hand over the top to turn it on. And well, it makes my air breathable.


These are Thermal-AID Zoo. They are 100% Natural Heating and Cooling treatment animals. Best of all, they are machine washable!


This is the Blendtec blender. It is seriously the best blender known to mankind. Okay, I may be exaggerating a little, but seriously, it is one awesome blender! Remember those videos on You Tube where the scientist guy (Tom Dickson) puts all sorts of stuff in the blend to see “Will It Blend”? Well, these are the blenders in that video!!!!


This is the GrillBot. If you have a grill, you need one of these! You put this on the grill after you are done cooking (and after you’ve turned it off!). You leave it for 5 minutes, and your grill is cleaned. Seriously, it is that awesome.



This is from Zak Designs. It was just so pretty and I’d love to get it for the house! Madison’s my Hello Kitty fan, so I had to take a picture of that.


Aren’t these the coolest hats ever?


I can’t remember which booth I saw these. However, I want to make cookies like this!


Duck Timer. Seriously. Do I really need to say anything else. And yes, it quacks when the time runs out.


I think this in car scent diffuser from Serene House is brilliant. It’s pretty. It smells nice. You can plug it in your car and it has a USB!


Good Cook had some really awesome Popcorn Balls. They showed us how to make them and well, they looked yummy!

Hopefully, I found something for everyone to like there. By no means is this list everything I saw. I was there 3 days walking about 15,000 steps a day. Needless to say, I didn’t need any Broad spectrum sunscreen especially since on the 4th day we got a snowstorm that dropped 12 inches of snow on us!

What is your favorite thing off this list?
