Happy New Year, Qwerkiteers! We hope you all had a wonderful festive season, but now the real work begins! How many of you have made New Year’s resolutions? How good are you at sticking to them? We’ve got some great gizmos to help you along the way with the top resolutions.
Resolution Number 1: Get Fit & Healthy
This brilliant device will help you get toned through resistance training. You can even use it when you’re sitting down, so you can multitask by exercising and binge-watching! Hallelujah!
One of the best ways to start down the fit and healthy path is to actually pay attention to what and how much you eat. We’re all good at forgetting all those snacks we munched on at our work desks, but this book will help you to take an honest look at your food intake and help you to stay on track.
Have you joined the courgetti spaghetti craze yet? A perfect way to cut down on carbs and increase your vegetable intake, the Spiralizer can be used with courgettes (or zucchini if you’re across the pond), carrots, aubergines, and pretty much any kind of vegetable you can think of! If you’re stuck for ideas on what you could make with a Spiralizer, have a browse through the Spiralizer Cookbook for some inspiration.
Continuing with a healthy eating theme, we also have this brilliant cookbook that encourages healthy eating without needing a dieting plan. Knowing what you should be eating these days can be quite confusing. Are eggs good for me? Is sugar really that bad (please say no!)? What are good fats and bad fats? With this beneficial guide, you can find all these answers and more.
Resolution Number 2: Get Organised
Are you one of those people that likes to write “Make a list” at the top of their to do list? Then these note pads are for you! Help yourself get organised with the Now/Later and To Do/To Buy note pads. Each pad has a perforated line down the middle, so you can separate your lists with ease. Easier than organizing a booze up in a brewery!
Who says getting organised has to be dull? With these assorted sticky notes, you can keep on top of your tasks and learn to recognise some of our most beloved garden birds at the same time! Please ‘note’ that staring out of the window trying to spot these birds does not count as being organised or productive (sorry…)!
Perfect for using in a kitchen or study, this large wipe-clean Weekly Wall Planner looks just like an over-sized diary. Leave yourself reminders, a shopping list, or scribble out a meal plan for the week. We suggest you stick it to your fridge – you’ll never miss it there!
Resolution Number 3: Learn A New Hobby
With some imagination, using our Pyro Master set, you can create exciting and different works of art on both wood and leather. Pyrography is a great way to help your mind relax after a stressful day, and will give you an excuse for a little more ‘me time’.
Go back to basics with one of the oldest hobbies in the book: whittling. Easy to pick up after a busy day and immensely relaxing and satisfying, all you need is a stick and a craft knife.
Resolution Number 4: Spend Less, Save More
Stay on top of your home finances with this no-nonsense Budget Planner. Practical tips and advice cover everything from bank accounts and debit cards, managing your cash flow and creating a balance sheet, to planning goals.
Avoid food waste (and wasting money!) with these Fresh Food Savers. The discs and bags absorb and remove the ethylene gas released by ripening fruit and vegetables, to extend its life. The discs and bags each last for 3 months.
Resolution Number 5: Travel More
Discover your next exciting weekend get-away with a selection of lesser-known European destinations and emerging cities, such as Kiruna and Brno, as well as well-known favourites. All aboard!
World travel experts Lonely Planet provide a mesmerising and inspirational overview of 50 amazing natural and manmade wonders that will have you packing your suitcases in a flash!
This elegant design and colourful pattern will look great whenever or wherever you travel throughout the year! Plus, you’ll have a great excuse for a weekend away.
Maximise your hand luggage allowance with this light Wheeled Bag which complies with all the current budget airlines' carry-on restrictions. Brilliant for a long weekend getaway!
So, there you have it, Qwerkiteers; our best products to help you keep your resolutions! The rest is up to you. Good luck!
