NoNetz Boys and Men’s Swimwear that Prevents Chaffing

Sample sent for feature

nonetz shorts

As a Mom when we are out on a spring or summer outing we have enough to worry about. We are focused on packing enough food, snacks, sunscreen, chairs and toys. If we are traveling we have locking up the home, mail delivery, car rental, flights, car maintenance if on a road trip and so many other worries that steel our focus. We don’t have much more energy left for avoidable disturbances like sand in the shorts, crying with chaffing discomfort, children who may be sensitive to materials and refuse to wear swim trunks, etc. NoNetz men’s and boys swimwear prevent chaffing and so much more.

NoNetz lining

NoNetz has 3 boys color choices and 6 men’s styles to choose from. Because the lining is made of an antibacterial spandex you don’t get the chaffing and it hugs the legs enough that sand and other debris stay on the outside. There is nothing worse for a boy (or man) to break out those new swim trunks bought for a special vacation and after a day is left with painful rashes. That can ruin a few days of vacationing. This is such a brilliant idea and my son won’t wear his old swim trunks anymore.

NoNetz drawstring

We have 2 trips coming up and I had him try these on for test and he made it very clear he wants these ones packed for him for the hotel pools. He is only 8 but right away noticed there is no net before I had the chance to point that out and was actually excited to see the spandex instead.

NoNetz Back
You can get NoNetz for the boys and men in your life right now so you have them ready to go on your next swimming adventure. The boys shorts run about $35 and the men’s are about $50. The price is fantastic for the quality and design you get. My son’s shorts does come with a drawstring which is great because with drawstrings you can buy a size a tad bigger so they can last up to 2 seasons by fit.

RefrigiWear Insulated Softshell Jacket Review

Sample sent for feature

softshell winter coat

For this review of a fantastic gift idea to those in need of a warm coat, I had my sample sent to our son’s dorm room. He is across state at Washington State University and it is cold, ice and snow weather right now. When I showed him some items from RefrigiWear to choose he was pretty excited at the thought of a warmer coat.

RefrigiWear Insulated Softshell Jacket Review

His comment: the jacket is thick and very warm. His campus is at the bottom of a hill at the University entrance which means it is quite a walk to his classes. Having a warm jacket is imperative for a comfortable walk especially for those 8am classes to night jaunts to the cafe for dinner.

If you have family living in cold climates or a child living on a cold campus, having a jacket from RefrigiWear is a blessing and will get so much use. You’ll want to see all of the styles as well as accessories for men and women. This one our son is wearing is called the Insulated Softshell Jacket in black/charcoal. It also comes in Navy.

So, head on over and take a look so you can finish your holiday shopping. I hope your student can make it home for the Holidays, but if not, ship them some warmth. They will need it!

Stocking Stuffers from 7 Heaven Beauty Masks

I have used beauty and body products as stocking stuffers since the oldest was a pre-teen. Now with 3 boys ages 8-24 I need a variety of stocking stuffers. So why am I mentioning beauty masks when i need stocking stuffers for older boys? Because 7 Heaven beauty masks has one for the men.

beauty masks men

The 7 Heaven masks have 2 options for men because our skin is important and being a man o women doesn’t decide if we should take steps to make sure our skin is healthy. The men’s Spearmint Deep Pore Cleansing Mask will give a smoother complexion with a fresh, clean feeling. The men’s Dead Sea Rescue Mud Mask brings natural orange oil and Dead sea minerals for a facial refresh.

Back to the standard 7 Heaven masks is the Creamy Coconut mask for dry and tired skin. It gives you a natural boost of hydration to your face.

beauty masks mud

The Chocolate Mud Mask and Hot Springs Sauna masks offer antioxidants and minerals for dry and rough skin. The peel-off masks are my favorite and they really dig into those pores. The 7 Heaven peel-off masks like the Passion will help peel away dead skin cells. These are perfect to use as weather changes.

The sizes of these single 7 Heaven masks are perfect for the stocking. Find these in many retailers near you at perfect stocking stuffer prices.

Powerhandz Performance Enhanced Sports Gloves

Sample sent for feature

Powerhandz Sports Gloves

My son’s basketball season is about to begin and he will start his same team for the third year. We have a great coach and request him every year. Now that he has his same coach and these new Powerhandz basketball training game gloves, I can’t wait to see him grow another year in this sport.

sports gloves grip

The glove is anti-grip so that the ball slides off the glove. The weights throughout the glove offer hand strength building. Together this creates excellent ball handling training. In youth players (my son being 3rd grade), they have speed, they have determination but they still lack handling and shooting. Some players are the aggressive type and others, like my son, are less aggressive but great on defense.

These gloves will help him a lot in passing skills while he gains a bit more hand and arm strength at practice.

The video below does a great job showing you the gloves in training….

He was so excited when these came and the first thing I did was show him this video above. Then we went outside to the neighborhood hoop and did some drills.
