DealDash’s Super Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Everyone

DealDash

Stockings are one of my favorite parts of Christmas. Read on for some stocking stuffer ideas from DealDash.

Many families have a tradition of hanging stockings up for Christmas and a stocking wouldn’t be complete without having a few small gifts and candy inside. Below are some stocking stuffer ideas for everyone, from DealDash.

Cute Ideas for Kids

We’ve found that offering small toys are always a hit. Try using something out of the ordinary – putty, a yoyo, a Rubik’s Cube. Try to add some things that kids don’t seem to get a hold of much these days.

Our family also offers up favorite candies. This is something that’s simple to plan out but still allows the chance to make it a unique gift. When each child gets their favorite candy bar, it reminds them that you’re paying attention to the details. It can also be fun to add some candies that they don’t see very often. Try shopping at your local Asian grocery store or the “World” section at your supermarket.

Teenagers

Girls:

  • Makeup and/or Nail polish
  • Skincare
  • Face mask
  • Bath bombs
  • Body lotion

Our family has made it a point to remind the girls about the importance of self-care and encourage treating themselves to an at-home spa day. However, not all girls are into the “girly” stuff. You could substitute a new sketchbook, some Sharpies, a Funko figurine, or a special Christmas ornament with one of their hobbies depicted.

Boys:

  • Cards (Pokemon, Magic, card game)
  • Books or Magazines
  • Small gift card for a new app or a few MP3s

Either:

Our family has also developed traditions. Rather than offering the world’s coolest gadget, we focus on building a tradition. This might be a coin from a special place or something from the year they were born. These things are more about the thought than the gift itself.

Adults

  • Power Block (mobile phone charger)
  • Gloves
  • Gift Cards
  • Higher-end pens
  • Swiss Army Knife

Something everyone can use

  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Socks
  • Phone accessories – case and/or car holder
  • Netflix/Hulu subscriptions
  • A good gag gift to make them laugh

Thanks for Reading

Our family makes it a point to stuff stockings with gifts that people want, but that we (the gifters) would feel isn’t a very good gift. We can all use a new pair of socks, but who wants socks to be their main Christmas gift? Adding in the option of a gag gift is always fun as well. We love to make each other laugh when opening gifts.  Thanks so much for reading this DealDash article on stocking stuffers. I hope that it was helpful to you.

Help Yourself Win Auctions on DealDash

DealDash

You can win more auctions on DealDash by using a few simple tricks. Try these ideas today and watch as your bidding improves.

Are you a new bidder and aren’t getting enough wins on DealDash? No problem! Level out the playing field by using a few tips and tricks that the successful bidders use. You’ll want to take notes. Try these tips today and watch your bidding improve.

Don’t Miss Out on Free DealDash Bids

Are you aware that you can get free bids? There are a few ways, and I will tell you a couple of the easiest ones. For starters, have you been paying attention to your bid meter? Your bid meter is at the very bottom of your screen when you are bidding on an auction. It looks like this:

DealDash

Each and every time that you are the highest bidder in an auction, your green bid meter will progress. Once you have filled your meter you will see a button to the side of it that says “Collect XX Bids”. Click on the button, collect your bids, and start again!

You can also gain free bids by writing reviews on won auction products by using the tutorial for the first time, and by answering occasional surveys that DealDash sends out. Through these, you’ll have more bidding power available!

Download the DealDash App

Next, another way to boost your bidding on DealDash is to download the (free) DealDash app. It’s available for both iOS and Android devices, including tablets. You can take DealDash with you everywhere that you go, and bid “on the fly” by simply opening the app. You can also use the mobile website, but it’s much faster just to tap the app. You can download the app right here at this link.

Use BidBuddy for Easier Wins

Finally, the BidBuddy is an excellent way to get more wins on DealDash. The BidBuddy is an automated bidding tool that will bid until you A: cancel him, or B: run out of bids. You can always add more bids anytime that you like without canceling him and losing your spot. In each auction, you will see the BidBuddy located in the middle of the screen. Just input as many bids as you want to use and hit “Book a BidBuddy.” Simple!

Some people choose to place single bids, but by using the BidBuddy you will never miss a bid no matter what is going on where you are bidding. For example, a few years ago I was bidding on an auction while I was at work. I had a BidBuddy set, but I was monitoring the auction because it was down to just me and one other bidder. Suddenly, the power went out at work. This would have been an immediate loss for me because the other bidder would have won when I didn’t place another bid. However, since I had the BidBuddy set, I ended up winning that auction even though I wasn’t able to access my computer for another hour.

DealDash Fun Valentine’s Date Ideas

dealdash valentines day

Valentine’s Day is coming soon, do you have a date planned out for you and your sweetie? Why do the same old dinner? Here are some different ideas from DealDash.

Dinner and a movie might be a standard date, but why not try something new and different for Valentine’s Day? Some of these ideas from DealDash might not be romantic, but they will be fun quality time spent with your date, and isn’t that the important part?

Comedy Club

It’s said that laughing is a great bonding experience for couples, so perhaps a Valentine’s Day date to the comedy club is in order. Check your local Yelp or Google Guide to see if there’s a comedy club near you. Next, be sure of the hours and if you need tickets in advance. Have a fun time laughing the night away with your honey.

Paint Night

Many smaller restaurants and bars have what’s known as “paint night.” Paint night is a super fun activity that includes instruction from an art teacher how to paint a simple painting, and you can usually purchase wine or bring your own. Have a lovely time bonding with your mate while painting and sipping.

Couple’s Massage

Forget the dinner and a movie, I would trade them both for a massage! Couple’s massages aren’t always offered at your standard chain massage businesses, but sometimes they offer them as a special for Valentine’s Day. If you can’t get a couple’s massage, just get two regular massages booked at the same time. Once you’re face down on the massage table you won’t notice that the other person is in the room, anyway.

Cooking Class

What’s more romantic than Italian food? Italian food that you make yourself! Enroll you and your honey in a cooking class and learn how to make a meal together. The bonding experience will be great for your relationship – and if not, at least you will get a meal out of it!

I hope that you found this new DealDash article on Valentine’s Day date ideas helpful. Reading the DealDash Reviews and our sister blog DealDash Tips Blog  daily is one way to stay “in the loop” when it comes to DealDash happenings.

DealDash’s Online Shopping Ideas

Image result for online shopping Of course DealDash would like you to come check out the auctions for this holiday shopping season, but they realize you will be shopping on multiple websites. Here are some online shopping hints for the season.

DealDash get it. DealDash understands that as much as you like their online auctions, you will be shopping in multiple places online and in store this year for Christmas. When you need something, check DealDash first, because you might be able to get a great deal – but if DealDash isn’t offering the particular item that you are looking for this year, here are some hints about online shopping this Christmas season.

The most important hint for this holiday season is to plan ahead. Don’t be one of those shoppers that waits until the very last second and then has to wait in long lines at the store, or pay for overnight shipping. Try to have all of your presents purchased, delivered, and wrapped two weeks before Christmas. That means that you need to hustle. Be sure to check DealDash first, here is a link to search the auctions.

Next, make sure that you make yourself a budget and stick to it! Decide before you start shopping how much that you are going to spend on each of the people on your shopping list, and then go shopping. You wouldn’t want to travel to a foreign city without a gps, and you don’t want to go shopping without a budget! It just makes good sense.

As mentioned above, make sure that you have a list. Make a list of everyone that you would like to get a gift for, the budget, and maybe also jot down a few ideas if what you think that they might like.

If you are getting gifts for multiple children that will be opening their gifts together such as siblings or cousins, try to keep the budgets for each child similar. It wouldn’t be a very nice experience for the kids if one child gets an Xbox One, and the other child gets a puzzle. If you would like to get one of the children something much nicer than the others, be sure to give them that gift privately so no one gets their feelings hurt on Christmas.

After you’ve made your lists and your budget, come check out DealDash. DealDash has awesome gifts for kids and adults. Visit DealDash now and see how much you can save. Good luck and happy bidding everyone! Image result for online shopping

DealDash and the Festive Smell

Image result for simmer pot ingredients No matter what kind of house you live in, I bet you want it to smell yummy. Here is a guide on fall simmer pots from DealDash.

I don’t know about you, but I end up cleaning my house myself most of the time, and one of the things that I like to do is make the air smell yummy and clean.  I have found quite a few handy tips and tricks through the years to make the house smell good – from chemicals to candles to natural methods. Here are a few helpful hints from DealDash.

Around this time of year the air in the house tends to get a little stale due to no windows being opened, and people opening and shutting the doors as fast as possible to keep out the chilly weather. There’s a way to freshen up the air in your house without too much effort – simmer pots!

Making a simmer pot is extremely easy. There are two basic methods – on the stove or in a crock pot. Both have their positives and negatives, let’s talk about both methods.

To make a simmer pot on the stove you just need to combine the ingredients together, fill the pot with water, and simmer away. The idea is to simmer the pot all day, adding more water as needed. This way gets the maximum scent, and also has the added benefit of extremely easy clean up. However, if you have small kids, pets that jump onto the counter, or a gas stove – this method is not for you.

Making a simmer pot using a crock pot is easy and you can let it simmer all day without even having to watch it, other than to just check in occasionally to make sure that it doesn’t need any more water. I don’t feel that this method spreads around as much scent, but it’s the only way to go if you have any safety concerns about the stove method.

As for what to put in the simmer pot – it’s up to you! I will include a list of some possibilities, mix and match the ingredients as you see fit.

  • dried orange peel
  • apple
  • cloves
  • cinnamon sticks
  • cardamom pods
  • fresh ginger
  • star anise
  • vanilla bean
  • lemon
  • rosemary
  • cranberries
  • bay leaf

I hope that you enjoy making your house smell yummy with a simmer pot. If you need a new pot or slow cooker, DealDash has them. DealDash has many kitchen items. Check DealDash first, at this link here. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!Image result for simmer pot ingredients
