No more meltdowns. Perfect for poolside, backyard ice cream enjoyment. These bowls are 12oz, food-grade, stainless steel vacuum insulated bowls with premium copper plating for extra insulation.

Palo Alto Innovation’s Sandman Doppler
A smart clock that brings organization and ease to daily routines. With Alexa built-in you can listen to music, play games, or ask questions to help with homework. With six USB ports found on the back of the clock, you can charge multiple devices and get rid of that power strip next to the bed helping keep your nightstand clean. The Doppler also has premium speakers that not only connect to Bluetooth but will fill the room with the music of your choice. You can customize the easy-to-read display to match room decor by picking one of the various color options available and the display auto dims at night making it easy on the eyes. The display also has an infinite viewing angle and can be dimmed all way to blackout if needed. $199.00 at sandmandoppler.com.
This gadget offers peace of mind with portable, indoor-safe backup power solutions for your home.

Geneverse’s compact and solar-capable HomePower ONE offers up to 7 days of power supply to crucial devices in an emergency or whenever portable power is needed. Geneverse can be charged from a car or AC outlet. And, with the ability to charge with portable solar panels, users can be completely energy independent. Count on Geneverse to reliably power, support, and simplify your beautiful life. $1499.00 at generark.com.
