Fleece blanket from the Whitknees Etsy shop [giveaway]

We're halfway through December already! And that means it's getting cold for those of us in the North. It also means the holidays are very close, so why not give something warm?

Blankets come in handy all the time at my house, especially for keeping warm as we try to save money by not turning the heat up. Even the cat loves his blankets.

The Whitknees Etsy shop makes soft, quality fleece blankets, including tie dye patterns. The tie dye blankets in particular have a solid color on one side and the pattern on the other. At 72 x 58 inches, it's large enough for most adults and roomy for the kids.



The edges are sewn together rather than tied, so it's a little different than the tying method, which is a common method for making fleece blankets. My wife used to make the tie blankets actually. Whitney's fleeces are put together nicely.

Whitney has also created a Go-Fund-Me campaign to raise money to make 100 blankets to give to the homeless and those in need. Winter is here, so consider making a donation in any amount to help someone!

Here are a couple other fun patterns. Check out the Etsy shop for more.


So who wants a blanket?! Whitney is graciously offering the pink tie dye fleece blanket to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader. She also has a code SETH10 for 10% off orders via her shop, expiring 3/31/16.

C4 Belts: Choose your color, choose your cause [giveaway]

Brown and black isn't very exciting. How about turquoise? Or bright white? Or a combination of whatever you want?

I recently custom ordered a navy belt with a mint-colored buckle from C4 Belts. Mint, what the what? The belt is made from thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) plastic, which is the same stuff that lines snowmobile tracks. Pretty cool.

C4 promotes individuality through quality custom belts that give back. The giving back part is important. C4 stands for Choose your Color, Choose your Cause. You'll be looking cool on the outside and feeling good on the inside knowing a contribution was made to causes like the Boys & Girls Club of America.

The belt is durable and will fit men, women, and even kids. To get it sized right, you cut the end that has no holes and put the buckle back on. The belts and buckles are also interchangeable, you can mix and match when ordering more. The combinations are endless.



You can even get these babies wet as they're waterproof. Wear it with your swim trunks or whatever. And if you want to clean it, stick it in the washing machine or dishwasher (top rack).

There are awesome colors and designs in the C4 collection, so check it out and play with the combinations.

Mission Belt will charm your socks off and keep your pants on [giveaway]

Need a holiday gift? You can't go wrong with a leather belt from Mission Belt. When you buy one of their belts you become part of a great philanthropic effort - they call it "the mission." Mission Belt wants you to look good and feel good. That's why a dollar from every belt goes to fight hunger and poverty worldwide.

I recently got my hands on the TwentyFour belt in light brown. My old belt got so worn out, mostly in the holes, that it became raggedy and a bit ugly. Mission's belts, however, don't have holes so there's no chance of wear and making holes bigger!

The TwentyFour - gold buckle, light brown belt

Behold a belt with fierce power and a voice that will charm your socks off! Mission Belt will also keep your pants on. The TwentyFour belt in particular (pictured above) is in a class all by itself with a sleek, spring-loaded caliber mechanism in the stainless steel buckle.

I can attest that it's classy, comfortable, and snugly fits to your waist size whether you just had a big holiday dinner or you're feelin' slim. There are no holes.

So how does it work without holes? There's a hidden track on the backside of the belt and a release tab on the underside of the buckle which allows you to easily make adjustments.

Nice packaging presentation

There are awesome colors and designs in the leather belt collection, so check it out and browse around. You can go casual or dressy with the entire collection of belts.

So who wants to win a belt?! The folks at Mission Belt are graciously offering one leather belt of your choice to one Giveaway Guy reader.

The Squatty Potty toilet stool is a life-changer [giveaway]

About 10 months ago I partnered with Squatty Potty for a stool giveaway and it was a bigger success than I anticipated! People found the toilet stool intriguing, including myself, and now we're doing another giveaway.

I first discovered Squatty Potty while watching ABC's Shark Tank with family. At first we all chuckled when they did a demonstration to show how it's used. Let's face it, pooping is a funny and awkward topic.


But then I started to take it seriously as the Squatty Potty founders explained how effective the stool is.

Here's what I learned. We're designed to squat, but instead we sit on toilets. Sitting keeps the colon kinked, kind of like when there's a kink in a hose and the flow of water is slowed. Squatting, on the other hand, allows the colon to fully relax and empty quickly.

I suffer from IBS, so constipation is a regular part of my life. My eyes lit up when I saw there's a solution that could help! And for less than $30, you're getting a lot of value for something that can be a life-changer.

And here's a funny, demonstrative video:



So who wants to win something?! The folks at Squatty Potty have been gracious enough to offer up a free toilet stool to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

$25 PayPal cash giveaway (#HolidaySeason)

November was a good month for giveaways, and thanks to a bit of luck I've got something to pass on to you this month!

The more often I win things (especially gift cards), the more often I can offer stuff to give away on the Giveaway Guy blog. Follow me on Twitter too (@StaticSeth).

The holiday season is here and I'm sure we could all use some extra cash for gifts and whatnot. $25 in PayPal cash (USD) is up for grabs to one lucky reader. The giveaway is available to everyone worldwide.

Comfy Commuter travel pillow [giveaway]

If you've ever been to an airport, you've probably seen plenty of pillows for sale, and priced at a premium too. I've always thought those shops and over-priced stuff are for suckers.

Comfy Commuter, on the other hand, is a small family business and their original travel pillow was created simply because they could not find a comfortable neck pillow when they traveled. I think we all know the levels of discomfort we deal with when trying to rest while on the go. Sleeping in the car, let alone on a plane, is tough.

Resting peacefully I imagine...

Since the Comfy Commuter travel pillow was first offered for sale in 2010, minor design improvements have been made to make it even better. However, the support and cradling of the head & neck is the foundation of the pillow.

Yes, it looks kinda funny, but the pillow really does provide cushy support for my big, brainiac head, and my neck too. I first tried it while sitting on the couch at home and it worked great. You know the feeling of your head starting to bob up and down as you drift to sleep? There's no bobbing or shifting with the pillow and I have a nice feeling of stability. My head's not going anywhere.


The chin strap offers additional support, and it "locks you in" so to speak. I found it to be rather tight and you don't even need it the way the pillow is designed to fit around your neck.

I let my Mom try the pillow for her 12-hour flight to Hawaii and she seemed pretty happy with it. As for the car, my wife and I go on road trips every year and we'll be sure to bring this along. Our annual 14-hour trip to the Midwest is brutal without taking a nap.

Now... who wants a pillow?! The folks at Comfy Commuter have been gracious enough to offer up an original travel pillow in the color of your choice to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

SWIG luxury hip flask [giveaway]

Whenever I see a flask or hear about one, I almost always think of this bit by comedian Jim Gaffigan.


My favorite gift I've ever received is a flask. I think giving someone a flask is a nice way of saying, "Hey, you seem like a drunk on the go."

But in all seriousness, a flask is great and you don't need to be a lush to have one! SWIG recently sent me a flask to review, and they're a worldwide luxury hip flask brand. I've also learned flasks are also known as "hip flasks," so add that to your knowledge of booze.

SWIG puts a lot of effort into quality of their products (not just flasks), and therefore they're happy to give a lifetime guarantee. Can't complain about that! The flasks are designed to last for generations, and I expect my flask will as it's nicely made.

First of all, the flask comes in a nice, slim box that's wrapped with ribbon. I can see this as a popular gift for groomsmen, and you can get an engraving too if you so feel inclined. The box is classy and reminds me of something a necklace might come in. (Sorry, no picture of the box)

Source: swigflasks.com

Secondly, the SWIG Flask is snugly and firmly encased in the executive pouch, which is made of high-end leather that's 'wet moulded' by leather artisans based in the Spanish town of Ubrique. It's got a sleek feel and doesn't feel like it would slip out of my hand... even if I've had a few drinks! There are a few color options for the pouch as well.

Maybe you need a bit of liquid courage at a party. Or you want to spike your iced tea while on the golf course. Fill up your flask (SWIG also has a stainless steel funnel to make pouring easy), enjoy the benefits of taking a refreshment with you, and be responsible.

One thing to note is the cap does not have an attachment. So when you take the cap off, hold on to it! You don't want to lose that baby.

So who wants to win something?! The folks at SWIG are graciously offering a hip flask to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader. Choose either a Harris tweed flask or Executive Molded flask.

Become upstoppable! Free entry to any Spartan Race [giveaway]

I previously held a Spartan Race giveaway back in July and we're back with another one!

As I've mentioned many times on my blog before, in the past I've participated in the Spartan Race sprint at Fenway Park in chilly November and it was more challenging than I expected. But I finished feeling accomplished and it kicked my butt to say the least.


Spartan Race has a handful of ballpark races, and if you're nearby one of 'em, you should consider signing up. It gives you the chance to run throughout the park - even on the field - and it's a rare experience. There aren't many opportunities to get onto the field without spending the night in jail.

Getting to the race is the first step of success. Richard Branson of Virgin Group, a pretty smart dude, said this:
“People who push the limits get much more out of life than those who watch others do it.”

Do yourself a favor, put on your big boy pants, and sign up for a race. I'm the first to admit I don't have a tough mindset, but I felt #unstoppable after finishing my first Spartan.


To prepare yourself, the Summer training guide is still available for FREE to download. Forget that it's not summer. You can get in shape at the gym or at home.

Mix up your summer work out routine and learn proper form for all of the foundational movements of a Spartan Race. So check out the guide and get ready to dominate your next race and become one step closer to earning your Trifecta!


So who wants to win a free race?! The folks at Spartan Race have been gracious enough to offer up a free entry to any Spartan Race in the continental U.S. to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Note: The code will work one time for any 2016 open heat (non-confirmed start time) in the continental U.S.

Star Wars opens in December! $25 Fandango gift card giveaway

I grew up watching Star Wars and doing Star Wars-themed things with friends. You're not human if you haven't seen any movies from the original trilogy (IV, V, VI)! We won't talk about the three prequels (I, II, III).

It's been a long time since we had a [good] Star Wars movie, but I think that's about to come to an end. The Force Awakens opens December 18th and you can bet I'll be at the theater. I wouldn't be surprised if it sets a new opening weekend record.

There have been a couple short trailers to tease us and you can see the first full-length trailer below. Prepare to get goosebumps.



The Force Awakens is a continuation of the George Lucas' saga, taking place 30 years after Episode VI - Return of the Jedi. Did you know Return of the Jedi came out in 1983? I was born that year.

I have a $25 Fandango gift card and I'm gonna give it away to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader. What movie are you looking forward to seeing?


I currently have a bunch of other giveaways going on, so check 'em out! They're also listed on the right side of my blog.

Rainwater Botanicals is back with more cream and soap! [giveaway]

Just last month I partnered with Rainwater Botanicals for a repair cream giveaway and it was a hit! People love creams and masks so we're doing something similar again.

If you like hand and body creams, you're gonna want to try the white tea & ginger cream from Sara at her Etsy shop, Rainwater Botanicals. Oh, and the ginger pumpkin bath soap too, but more on that later.

Sara takes pride in using the highest quality, natural ingredients and offering products at affordable prices. She also takes great care in choosing packaging that is both functional and recyclable whenever possible. Products are paraben free, phthalate free (including packaging), and sulfate free.


Prepare to become a huge fan of the white tea & ginger cream! You'll soon be raving about the hand & body cream as one of the best ever.

With the delicate scent of lovely tea and warm ginger, this beautiful cream will leave you with plump, hydrated skin all day long. There aren't any artificial fragrances or nasty preservatives - Sara uses only pure essential oils and natural preservatives.


And then there's the ginger pumpkin bath soap, a natural soap packed with pumpkin seed oil, pure pumpkin, sea buckthorn oil, and organic ginger root extract to help you maintain a healthy, vibrant complexion. Ginger improves the appearance of skin as it increases circulation, which means more nutrients head straight to the areas of application - so you’re on your way to great skin!

Speaking of skin, with the weather cooling off this is a good soap that won't dry it out. Dry skin is usually a problem for me in the cold months. The ginger pumpkin soap is vegan, naturally-scented and colored, and doesn't have any artificial dyes or fragrances.

There are plenty of other cool stuff in the Rainwater Botanicals shop, so check it out and browse around.

So who wants to win something?! Sara is graciously offering two items to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader:
  • Jar of White tea & ginger hand/body cream
  • Bar of Ginger pumpkin bath soap

Modern Oats All Natural Oatmeal [review]

Oatmeal has been a go-to choice for breakfast for me considering I spend most days at work. I prefer to sleep as much as I can and then worry about breakfast once I get to the office. Oatmeal is quick, easy, and healthy.

There are plenty of other benefits to eating oatmeal of course, and here are just a few:

  • Boosts energy
  • Supports weight loss
  • Boosts heart health
  • Bonus: oatmeal raisin cookies

Modern Oats sent me a variety pack to try and I think I've got most of my family hooked now. I'm currently researching oatmeal support groups.


Modern Oats only works with small farm, gluten-free, Non-GMO Verified oats. That's a mouthful, but it's important to know where your food is coming from and how it can affect you. The oats are the highest grade from family run operations throughout the upper Midwest.

The recyclable oatmeal cups are an ideal healthy snack for on the go, and portable too. Stick one in your purse, bag, or at your desk. I always keep snacks in my drawer and oatmeal is one of the things I like to keep in stock.

There are six different flavors in the oatmeal product line. If you like chocolate it obviously makes sense to consider trying the chocolate cherry oatmeal. It's packed with whole oats, Hawaiian coconut, bits of chocolate, cocoa nibs, flax seeds, and Oregon cherries. Just be aware there's 20 grams of sugar in there too.

Making the stuff is relatively easy. Take the lid off, pour in your hot water to the line (or above the line if you like it soupy like I do), stir it nice and good, then cover it and let it sit for a couple minutes.

I will say Modern Oats is a bit on the expensive side, but if you want to treat yourself to some amazing oatmeal then give this a try. Just don't be surprised if you get hooked.

Rustic wood end tables from Serene Village [giveaway]

My wife and I bought a house this past summer and we've been slowly decorating and furnishing the place with a rustic feel. Most of the floors are wood and we've decided to go with a cabin-like atmosphere. Wood this, wood that. Almond this, almond that.

After finally getting a couch (we sat on the floor for more than a month!), we needed some end tables. We browsed Etsy because of the great selection and came upon Tone & Serena's shop, Serene Village. They have various end table sets and we got our set of two for about $100 - not bad. Of the handful of stains to choose from, we agreed on natural.

Serene Village is a one-stop shop for rustic home and wedding decor pieces with our plenty of styles, or even custom-made to how you like it. Tone and Serene have many styles and sizes to choose from - ready to ship with easy, no-fuss listings. And feel free to send them a message about how you dream something to look!


And speaking of looks, here's what our living room looks like with the couch capped by two of the Serene Village end tables. We're pretty happy with the purchase and the way everything ties together, and the natural wood stain is a classic choice. Although, I must say we still need drapes and wall decor.

Every piece from Serene Village is original and handcrafted just for you. It'll vary slightly depending on the wood species with color, tone, and wood grains. What you are guaranteed, though, is that your piece will be unique!

When we received the end tables, they required simple assembly - just fastening the legs, and it's easier than you think with screws and pre-drilled holes ready for you.

So let's give away a table, shall we?! Serene Village is graciously offering a handmade rustic wood end table with black legs (as shown below) to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader. This would also make a great gift with the holidays around the corner.

Nature's Bakery Gluten Free Fig Bars [giveaway]

A couple months ago I partnered with Nature's Bakery for a whole wheat fig bars giveaway and it was a success! People love fig bars, including myself. This time let's turn our eyes to the gluten free line.

When I was a kid I wasn't allowed to have many snacks, but every once in a while my Mom let me have fig bars and it was like a delicacy to me. I still love these things.

Lately I've been gorging on gluten free fig bars from Nature's Bakery. There are four different flavors! And they're all amazing. I think the blueberry is my favorite, but it's a tough call.

4 flavors - blueberry, original fig, pomegranate, and raspberry

Nature’s Bakery supports health-conscious living and active lifestyles with a balance of nature, activity, nutrition, and community. They use delicious, thoughtfully-crafted ingredients that are perfect for on-the-go snacks.

Furthermore, their snacks are Non-GMO Project Verified as well as Certified Vegan and Kosher. As you'd probably expect from high-quality food, there are NO artificial ingredients and NO high fructose corn syrup.

NO artificial ingredients

These gluten free fig bars are one of my favorite snacks, and my wife is hooked on 'em too. I've said it before and I'll say it again - this is what gold should taste like, bursting with soft freshness and jam-packed with fig flavor. The bars don't contain preservatives, so eat them up before the expiration date. They're meant to be eaten fresh.

Each little package comes with two gluten free bars in it and you can stuff the package in a pocket, purse, whatever. Great for on the go.

So who wants some fig bars?! The folks at Nature's Bakery have been gracious enough to offer up 4 boxes to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Deva America's Fresh Pastry Stand tea towels [review]

Tea towels don't get a lot of fanfare but I like them because they're practical in the kitchen. I always have one hanging on the handle of the fridge or oven. Sometimes both.

I recently got a couple tea towels from Deva America and the Fresh Pastry Stand. I've got the "Celebrate" towel and the vintage bowl towel in daisy yellow, a favorite design for Pyrex collectors.


I'm not a collector, but I do have a couple Pyrex things. I like vintage designs, and if you've ever been on Etsy then you know you don't have to look far to find them.

Deva America's tea towel homage will stir up memories from grandma's kitchen and help make your house a home!

And the towels really do stir up memories for me. My grandma even sent me a half dozen some years ago when I had moved into an apartment of my own. She might have even stitched them herself, but I don't remember.

These tea towels arrived at my house in perfect condition and nicely packaged as you'll see in the photo above. They're soft to the touch and add a splash of color to the kitchen. Our house is mostly shades of brown and yellow, and the yellow daisy bowl towel fits right in.

You can see my cat's reflection in the oven door.

I like using the towels to dry off my washed hands or drying dishes that just came out of the hot dishwasher. There are plenty of other uses though.

All of the Fresh Pastry Stand products are packaged with the environment in mind, reflecting the commitment to a responsibly produced product line. Check out the shop for all the designs!

Recyclable materials are used whenever possible, and every item is thoroughly inspected before shipping, ensuring your satisfaction.

It's getting dark earlier now! Try the Mediflow gel foam pillow [giveaway]

Earlier this week I posted a Mediflow review and now we're back with a pillow giveaway!

As I mentioned in my review, I had the pleasure of trying the gel foam waterbase pillow, clinically shown to improve the quality of your sleep. Mediflow helps you sleep unlike any other pillow on the market.


Water in a pillow? That's an unusual thing. The Mediflow pillow has a soft, hypoallergenic fiber filling which is supported by a water pouch. If you need a pillow for neck pain, the pillow has been clinically shown to reduce tossing and turning.


So who wants a pillow?! The folks at Mediflow have been gracious enough to offer up a gel foam waterbase pillow to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Plymouth Mocs Moccasins [review]

I really like the comfort and feel of these moccasins. I have wood floors at home and they can be cold on my feet, so I slip into these puppies and it's like my feet are nestled into little clouds.


However, be aware that these run small. I wear a size 11.5 shoe and since Plymouth Mocs doesn't make half sizes (based on my search), I ordered the next largest size, a 12. Unfortunately they were much too tight.

I've read in other reviews that these moccasins don't stretch out much, so I decided to return them and got a full size and a half up (13). There was no hassle with the return process.

Being that my pair is 1.5 sizes larger than my shoe size, these are roomy and I can easily toss them off if I want. But they still stay on my feet while walking around the house.

Order at least one size up, and possibly 1.5 sizes if you wear a half size.

Pet fleece blanket from Amore Pet Boutique [giveaway]

It's already November! And that means here in Massachusetts, it's getting cold. It also means the holidays are just around the corner, so why not get something for your pet?

About 10 months ago I partnered with Amore Pet Boutique for a pet fleece giveaway and it was a huge success! People love their pets, including myself, so it's time for another giveaway.

I recently gave my cat, Jasper, a fleece blanket. He stepped on it immediately and he loves it. This particular Aztec fleece is hand-crafted by Lori Boyd out of her Etsy shop, Amore Pet Boutique. Soft, quality, and just the right size for Jasper (it's a large at 26 x 25 inches).

Jasper loves fleece, and he almost never sleeps on the floor without some kind of blanket or bed. Hey, floors can get cold no matter the season, and pets need warmth just as much as we do. The little guys need help keeping warm during the cold months.

Lori specializes in custom pet apparel, jewelry, beds, blankets, and other pet accessories. If you want something special or custom, you can contact her via her Etsy shop, or email her. Create something unique and fun for you and your pet.

Ah, the smell of new fleece.

Here are a couple other fun patterns. Check out Lori's Etsy shop for more.



So who wants a blanket?! Amore Pet Boutique is graciously offering an XL pet fleece blanket in the Aztec pattern to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader. At 30 x 26 inches, it's best suited for a cat or small dog.

Improve quality of sleep with Mediflow's gel foam pillow [review]

A few months ago I partnered with Mediflow for a waterbase pillow review. Our neck and heads deserve support and comfort. Chances are your pillow has lost it's shape and needs to be replaced.

So why not replace your pillow with one from Mediflow?

I recently had the pleasure of getting my hands on the gel foam waterbase pillow, clinically shown to improve the quality of your sleep. Mediflow helps improve your quality of sleep unlike any other pillow on the market.


Wait, so water in a pillow? That's an unusual thing you're probably thinking. The Mediflow pillow has a soft, hypoallergenic fiber filling which is supported by a water pouch. If you need a pillow for neck pain, for example, the pillow has been clinically shown to reduce tossing and turning.


You can easily add water to the bladder and adjust the support level to get the comfort level that's right for you. It's pretty cool, and does not have the sloshing effect that a waterbed does thankfully. Whether you prefer soft, medium, or firm comfort, you can customize it to your liking.

Other features:
  • Cool gel foam top layer
  • Ventilated to stay cool all night long
  • Special foam spring center to maintain support
  • Adjustable water base provides adjustability to any level of support

I came across an interesting Mediflow tweet awhile back that my wife and I analyzed together. I'm a combination of C and D, which actually aligns with my personality - suspicious and reserved. What does your sleep position say about you?

Rainwater Botanicals is back with high quality, natural ingredients [giveaway]

More than eight months ago I partnered with Rainwater Botanicals for a mud mask giveaway and it was a success! People love mud mask, including myself. This time we're doing something a little different.

I recently had the privilege of trying intensive repair cream and pumpkin facial mask from Sara at her Etsy shop, Rainwater Botanicals.

As she states on her profile, Sara takes pride in using the highest quality, natural ingredients and offering products to customers at affordable prices. She takes great care in choosing packaging that is functional and recyclable whenever possible. Products are paraben free, phthalate free (including packaging), and sulfate free.


My wife is a huge fan of the intensive repair cream! She raves about the cream as the best she's ever tried for face and body. It's a natural cream that absorbs into the skin leaving no greasy residue behind, hydrating the skin to soften and smooth.

As for the scent, I can confirm the cream smells nice - pretty light and will eventually disappear completely. My wife likes to apply the cream before going to bed and the scent gives the bedroom a pleasant scent. I'm sensitive to most fragrances, but this doesn't bother me.


And then there's the pumpkin facial mask, a mask to rejuvenate the face and really any part of the body. Let me warn you though, this is not for those who have sensitive skin! If your skin can handle it, you'll like that pumpkin contains more than 100 beneficial nutrients that can help reverse the signs of aging.

And Sara has plenty of other cool stuff in the Rainwater Botanicals shop, so check it out and browse around.

So who wants to win something?! Sara is graciously offering a jar of repair cream and a jar of pumpkin mask to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader. She also has a code GIVEAWAYGUY for 10% off orders via her shop or site, expiring 11/30.

Crochet guitar strap from YesteryearsGirl [review]

If you play a guitar of some kind then you're probably gonna need a strap at some point. Consider a crocheted strap for something soft and easy on your shoulder, and YesteryearsGirl has got you covered. If you need a special order you can ask!

I recently got my hands on a nice crochet guitar strap from Grace and her YesteryearsGirl Etsy shop and I love it. Mine is in sage green, which isn't listed in the shop at the moment, but here's a pink strap currently listed. There's another one in purple too.

Strap fits even a large body (bass guitar).

The strap goes for just $12, which won't break the bank and is a pretty good deal in comparison to prices on straps in most stores. Anything more than $20 for a basic strap makes me cringe. YesteryearsGirl's crochet straps also makes a nice gift for the upcoming holidays.

As I mentioned, the strap is nice and soft, gentle on my shoulder, and I haven't had any trouble using it with my acoustic bass guitar. As you can see above, the body of my guitar is really big (and heavy), but the strap easily stays attached to the end pins and gets around my body too.

Oh, I should mention I'm 6'5," so you don't need to worry about about fit. While 46 inches from end to end, the crocheted yarn is stretchy and will hold up nicely far beyond 46 inches.

Grace's goal is to provide you with a quality item and experience for an affordable price, so check out the shop.

Exotic wood picks from Clefstache [review]

If you play a guitar of some kind you've probably gone through your fair share of various picks. Well consider a wood pick for lasting durability, and Clefstache will supply you some.

I recently got my hands on some awesome exotic wood picks from Clefstache on Etsy (handmade in the U.S.) and I'm not sure if I can ever go back to plastic. Clefstache's picks typically come in sets of six for just $10, which won't break the bank. The set also makes a nice gift for the upcoming holidays.

Wood pick having no trouble on the big acoustic bass strings.

As I mentioned, wood picks are durable and these guys haven't had any trouble on the hefty strings of my acoustic bass guitar. The sound is much more lively as opposed to playing finger style. I think you'll find these picks lend a wide range of unique tones to your playing.

Designed for many hours of playtime on acoustic guitars, the picks will last even longer on an electric. I don't have an electric yet, but someday when my wife gives me the green light you bet I will.

One thing to keep in mind, however, is that the pick can be snapped in your hands if you bend it. Strumming and plucking on the strings is A-OK, but if you try to bend the pick it will likely break. I know this because I did it by accident - oops.

A few shapes and sizes of Clefstache's wood picks.

Clefstache has picks made from all types of wood, including Amazakoue, Cocobolo, Yellowheart, Che-Chen, Marblewood, and Ebony. I've never even heard of half of these, but I love the colors and textures. With a rustic interior in my house, this kind of thing is right up my alley.

Clefstache has plenty of wood designs and even some wood earrings in the shop, so check it out.

Shady Rays classic style sunglasses [giveaway]

Summer is over, but the sun is still shining. How about some sunglasses with 100% UVA/UVB protection and classic style?

With durability and classic style, you'll find the perfect pair at Shady Rays. From their signature series to the classic aviator series, there’s a lot to like.

While the overall selection won't blow you away in size, there really isn't a pair I don't like. Shady Rays are also affordable and won't break the bank, which is important in order to be competitive in the eye wear market.


My wife and I typically like the wayfarer style, as most people do, and we're fans of Shady Rays' classic clear sunglasses in deep brown. This particular pair has a very durable frame with 100% UVA/UVB blocking shatterproof grey lenses.

And they are sharp! They sit comfortably, fit even large heads like mine (hey, I've got a big brain), and they're stylin'.


Furthermore, you can get a free replacement if your sunglasses are lost or broken for any reason. Any reason at all. You just need to pay a few dollars for shipping, which is a great deal if you ask me. So browse the Shady Rays shop and check out the designs.

Now... who wants a pair?! The folks at Shady Rays have been gracious enough to offer up a pair of sunglasses of your choice to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Enter to win using the Rafflecopter form below. You may share on Twitter once a day for extra points for the duration of the giveaway.

Halloween is coming. Light up the night with Lunar Bands [giveaway]

Last week I posted a Lunar Bands review and now we're back with a giveaway!

Lunar Bands can be wrapped around your wrist, arm, ankle, etc., designed to free up your hands and shine brightly with static and blinking settings. These bands are ideally meant for night owls, but anyone can use them. From hiking and biking, to festivals and raves, Lunar Bands have lit up events all over the country.

When turned on, the bands are bright! It's impossible to not be seen by cars or whoever else. They'll see you coming for sure. Not only is it great for walking and running, but also biking (strap the armband around your ankle - it works great). Oh, and there are two blinking modes too. Again, impossible not to be seen.

My wife even suggested this would be a great idea for trick-or-treating, which is just around the corner!

So who wants to win a band?! The folks at Lunar Bands have been gracious enough to offer up a band to two lucky Giveaway Guy readers.

Clean more efficiently with e-cloth [giveaway]

Have you cleaned your car lately? And what about the inside? Well if you're in a cold weather climate during the winter months, don't delay because it won't be fun cleaning the car when it's freezing out!

To make things easy for you, e-cloth sells chemical free cleaning. They were also featured in the May issue of Real Simple and rated Best of the Best in three separate categories.

Choose to clean differently by cleaning better with less effort - less effort sounds good to me! And you'll make your home (and car) safer by eliminating toxic chemicals.

ecloth.com

I recently got to try the interior car cleaning kit (pictured above) and had success with it. No smears or anything! e-cloths are different than most cloths I've seen and they give a chemical-free clean with just water. That's it, only water. No soap or special solution.

Look at all the dust and crap on my dashboard. I should be ashamed.

Included in the kit are two e-cloths - one glass & chrome cloth and one general purpose cloth. If you take care of these bad boys they should last for years.

So look at all the dust and crap that's sitting on my car's dashboard in the picture above. Gross, right? I took the orange general purpose cloth and gave it a couple wipe downs. Still some little pieces of dust left, so I sprayed the cloth with the water bottle a few times and gave the dashboard a final wipe down. The result is below.

Spotless. Practically looks new.

The gray cloth for glass and chrome I used for my side view mirrors that had water spots and stuff all over them. Spotless. I just sprayed the mirror and wiped it a few times with the cloth. Done.

The way the e-cloths work is they're made of millions of tiny fibers that pick up dirt which normal cloths just leave behind. The fibers pick everything up so your surface is clean and polished with no chemical residue left behind.

I love this simple car cleaning kit and plan to clean my wife's car before the winter weather becomes a pain. I know we'll save quite a bit of money by not using paper towels and chemical sprays.

Now... who wants to win something?! The folks at e-cloth have been gracious enough to offer up an interior car cleaning kit to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.
