If you are looking for a pampering gift to help sooth aching muscles, why not check out the line of products from Homedics. I was recently sent their Neck and Shoulder Massager w/ heat to review, and felt like I was on cloud 9 when using it. With two toddlers, who each way around around 32 pounds, I am doing a lot of picking and carrying them around throughout the day. So, by the time night comes and the girls are finally in bed sleeping, I can feel the aches and pains in my neck, shoulders and lower back. I have been using a heating pad to target the lower back area, but found that it didn't bring relief to my neck and shoulder areas, as the heating pad with its wires couldn't mold and fit perfectly in this area.
"Invigorating vibration massage for the neck and shoulders. Features soothing heat with 2 speeds and an ergo comfort design flexes for a perfect fit. Battery and adaptor driven and comes in assorted colors"
And, with the addition of heat, it really makes my sore muscles feel good, as I relax on the couch before heading to bed. I don't have to worry about trying to hold the neck & shoulder massager in place, or not being able to move freely in fear it will fall off, as the ergo comfort design makes this massager stay in place snuggly around your neck. Even when you turn the massager on, it doesn't shift or move, thus making your massage that much more soothing and beneficial.
At such an affordable price of only $19.99, this neck & shoulder massager from Homedics would make for a great gift for new or expectant moms, as well as parents looking for a way to unwind after a crazy day with the kids. We all don't have the luxury or finances to get a weekly or monthly massage to really get deep into muscles, but I have to say that this neck & shoulder massager, really does work, and will provide relief of aches and pains in the comfort of your own home, on your own time (whenever that may be).
In addition to the neck & shoulder massager, Homedics is also offering the following massage products that would make for a perfect gift for that special someone on your holiday shopping list, looking for some "me time" to unwind and sooth their aches and pains --

I hope that this holiday season that you take time for yourself -- even if it is to take a longer shower, sneak away to read a good book, or even ask Santa to bring you a pampering gift...just for you! Since becoming a mom, I have found myself putting myself last to the wants and needs of the kids, my husband and family and friends. I always used to see this happen to my mom and would say to myself, that I wouldn't let this happen to me. Because, when you don't take time for yourself, you tend to burn out, can get sick easier, or simply get depressed from being tired or moody. The last thing you want to be this holiday season is the Grinch. Sorry, had to put that in there. :-)
While my girls were putting together their wish lists for Santa, I sat down to think about things that would make great gifts for "me". Last year, when people asked what I wanted for Christmas, I tended to think of things that the family as a whole could use, or that I could do with the girls. But, this year, I am making a point to ask for a few things for "me." I hope you will do the same, as you deserve it.
