MOMDOMS098-shoot arrow-3D-LRMomdoms

Nothing says romance on Valentine’s Day like a concerned mother. A new product from New York ad agency kbs+ aims to take the edge off the uncomfortable conversation of safe sex just in time for Cupid’s arrival: Momdoms, a new brand of condoms, come in small mint tins featuring 1940s and 50s-era moms with cheeky phrases like “Before You Shoot That Arrow” and “Happy V.D.”

The kitschy idea was created by brothers Kevin and Wayne Simpkins as a homage to their own mother. Momdoms are currently sold in drug stores in New York and Las Vegas as well as Amazon.com where customers have the option to customize the tins with their own images of their mother.

VSP Direct

It’s the little things that count the most when it comes to expressing your love on Valentine’s Day. And if you’re looking for a truly unique, life-changing gift that won’t break the bank, consider this:

More than 50 million Americans don’t have access to vision insurance. Among that number, 45 million people don’t have vision coverage, need it, but don’t know how to get it. Consider giving that hard-working husband or retired wife a gift that can help him or her see well, be well and do it in style.

VSP Direct is individual vision insurance at a seriously affordable cost. For as little as 41 cents a day, VSP Direct can give anyone access to an eye exam with a low-copayment, an allowance for designer fashion frames or contact lenses and access to a 30,000 doctor network – all 100% satisfaction guaranteed.

Often times the people we love the most are so focused on pleasing others in their lives that they forget to take care of themselves. It’s the little things like squinting at your computer screen or struggling to drive at night from blurry vision that many often overlook when caring for themselves. VSP Direct solves that problem. And it’s as easy as giving that special person the gift of sight.

Comfort Revolution’s Hydraluxe Cooling Gel Pillow was recently chosen as one of the 12 healthiest gifts by The Dr. Oz Show and featured on an episode.

A revolution in cool, the Hydraluxe Cooling Gel Pillow sleeps cooler and stays cool longer than any other pillow, thanks to its cool layer of Hydraluxe gel fused onto Memory Foam. A 2011 independent test found the pillow slept significantly cooler than other sample pillows tested, including cool foam, ventilated foam, latex, fiber, and down. The pillow cradles your head and neck to relax your muscles and enhance the comfort, giving you a great night’s sleep.

Choose the version of the pillow that suits your style. It’s available in playful colors – Cool Cerulean, Glacier Green, Frosted Pink, and Ice Violet – and two different patterns, Bubbles or Waves. It comes as either a bed pillow or a contour pillow, with a premium washable cover that’s gentle to the face.

Anyone can benefit from better sleep, from teens to athletes to women experiencing the hot flashes of menopause. All materials in the pillow are hypoallergenic, making it ideal for people with allergies. The pillow also conforms to your unique shape for greater spine support. The price is $79.99, significantly less than other high-end pillows. Shipping is free. Buy one for yourself or send one as a gift at http://comfortrevolution.com.



One thing that millions of women across the country wish they had is a good night’s sleep, which is often unattainable due to their partner’s snoring. A perfect and creative gift for Valentine’s Day would be Theravent, a scientifically-proven and doctor recommended snoring treatment. See www.theraventsnoring.com for more information and to order.


AMBI™ Cooling Device 

When symptoms hit, hot flash and migraine sufferers know that a cool compress applied to the back of the neck or head is a fast, effective way to get much-welcome relief. But, ice packs, gel pouches, frozen vegetables and other conventional cold therapy is messy, drippy and inconvenient, not to mention impossible to keep on hand when you’re out and about.

AMBI, powered by BluTEC™ (“AMBI”) is the first-ever portable, personal cooling device that works like an electronic ice cube to instantly deliver mess-free, cool, soothing relief from hot flashes and migraine symptoms, as well as insect bites, bumps and bruises, at the touch of a button. AMBI™ is small and discrete—about the size of a smartphone—and provides safe, non-invasive relief that can be used anywhere, anytime: in the car, in bed, at work, on a plane or soccer field—anywhere symptoms strike.

AMBI™ requires just four AA alkaline batteries for portable use, also comes with a plug-in wall adapter and protective Neoprene sleeve case, for just $49.99. For more information, or to order an AMBI™ now, visit www.myambi.com.
