For the most part, rainy days are not fun. However, if you had just the right activities to do, that rain would be the furthest thing from your mind. I’ve found ten great products that will make any rainy day sunnier.
Love Letter Blanket
What is better than a warm blanket on a nasty, rainy day? I love to curl up on the couch with a good book and just relax. To be honest, I’m up for reading a good book any day, no matter the weather. There is a company called Frankie Print Co and they make the best blankets.
The Love Letter Blanket is so personalized it’s not only good for warming your body, but it also does wonders for warming your heart. This blanket is woven and thick, perfect for snuggle time. The front is personalized with a letter from one person to another. This can be anyone from a mama to daughter or a guy to his girl.
In order to get the letter on the blanket, a person would write it and either upload the letter in their own handwriting or the buyer can type out their letter and the company has a very pretty cursive font they use if the buyer chooses. I have gotten them in both ways and I have to say, I love them either way.
They make a great gift for anyone who doesn’t want to be cold. You can wrap your loved one in your heartfelt words.
Rainy days are made for lounging around and watching movies. What goes better with movies than a huge tub of popcorn? The answer is nothing! Johnson’s Popcorn has been in operation since 1940 and it comes in so many flavors and sizes. From the iconic Ocean City New Jersey Boardwalk, Johnson’s Popcorn is mixed in their large copper kettles, making every batch the same.
Johnson’s makes flavors like caramel, cheddar cheese, butter, chocolate drizzle and more. These flavors are made, packaged and shipped to your front door. Combinations like popcorn and salt water taffy makes great gifts for any occasion – including rainy days.
Kloveo Champagne Stopper
Rainy days tend to make me snack more than normal and they also call for something to drink. I like sparkling waters and grape juices. The bubbles make it seem more fancy in a way. I don’t know about you, but I can’t finish a whole bottle of grape juice in one sitting, and it’s not good unless it’s fizzy.
To keep your beverage fizzy, try the Kloveo Champagne Stopper. This thing is so neat! It goes on your bottle, the mounting pressure in the bottle helps the seal get tighter and it clips in place so it doesn’t fly off when you lay it down in your fridge. Yes, it is leak proof. How many stoppers can say that?
African Coffee Club
So maybe fizzy drinks isn’t your go-to for rainy days. What about coffee? How about coffee beans from Africa? Personally, I’m not a coffee drinker, but, everyone else in my house is. They opened a bag of beans from African Coffee Club and the coffee addicts in my home rushed in the room to inhale the smell. From halfway across the room, I could smell it. And, what a smell it is!
For centuries the coffee farmers of Africa wasn’t paid well. This company pays the farmers first and that allows them to send their children to school, save for their future and reinvest in their businesses.
I do love the smell of coffee, brewing, being ground, or freshly opened. It does smell amazing. The beans sent to us from the African Coffee Club certainly doesn’t disappoint. Each bag is from a different region of Africa. Your rainy day will brighten when you sit down to your first sip.
Tidbits Fun Bites
Maybe you need a little sweet during your rainy day. Tidbits Fun Bites are sweet little bites of fun that you can eat and not feel guilty. Imagine that. Whether you’re on a keto friendly, a diabetic diet or just want something to satisfy that little sweet tooth, Tidbits has the perfect snack for you.
With less than 2 calories per meringue, Tidbits come in so many flavors it will be hard to choose which one you want. From cookies and cream to coffee flavors, there is something for everyone.
Because your pets live at home, they can become affected by a rainy day. How about giving them some TLC while you’re hanging around the house? HandsOn Gloves are super cool gloves made for your pet.
When you wear them and pet your pup like normal, they help get the loose hair off of them. These are great because they stay on your hands, whether you are dry brushing your buddy or if you are giving your fur baby a bath.
I know when we try to give our beagle a bath, she wants to jump out of the tub and run off. The same is true with our chihuahua. SodaPup has the perfect product for this! The Lick Mat is so fantastic! Put a sticky treat (something like peanut butter) on the mat and the suction cups on the back help it attach to the side of the tub. You bathe your pup and they stay busy with a fun treat.
SodaPup also has many other products for your fur babies. From super duty chew toys that are hard to destroy and treat dispensers to lick mats and enrichment trays, SodaPup has something for every dog. These would brighten your dog’s rainy day up!
Whether it’s a rainy day or just a lazy day at home, I like to keep my hands busy. Some people like to knit or crochet, do arts and crafts or play cards. I love to put puzzles together. Tiny Treehouses makes wooden model kits that you can put together.
These little structures can be stand alone on a shelf or desk, or you can add the stakes to the bottom (yes, they are included) and add them to a potted plant to add character.
Everything you need to make the Temple of Gratitude is included in the box. You get the wooden pieces already cut, lights and instructions. It took me about 2 1/2 hours to complete it and everyone in my house is now asking for me to get more. They think that it’s really neat and with the LED lights, it makes it even better.
Another puzzle brand that makes me extremely happy is Mosaic Puzzles. I’ve gotten several and I really like how they are made from thick wood, they have very unique pieces and the colors are vibrant. These make great a great rainy day activity.
Mosaic Puzzles make a fantastic gift for puzzle lovers of all ages. Each one has unique pieces such as people, symbols and animals. No one would be bored putting together one of these. It’s hard for me to stop working on them. I love seeing the finished product.
My last rainy day product is the Huggaroo. The Huggaroo is a microwave weighted shoulder heating pad that fits around your upper body to soothe sore muscles.
I know that being hunched over a computer all week leaves my upper body very stiff and full of knots. The Huggaroo is amazing because it helps to relax all of those tight muscles. I have the Huggaroo Embrace that contains lavender for even more relaxation. My rainy day wouldn’t be complete without it.
The next time you have a rainy day at home, think about using these to make the most of your day.
