6 Must-Haves for Holiday Hosting

Last year we all did our best, hosting from afar and via Zoom, but this season holiday parties are back on. And while most of us are not planning for huge festivities, we want the atmosphere to be just right. This means clean air, delicious well-cooked food, drinks that taste like we became mixologists while in quarantine, pretty florals, and table settings that look Instagram-ready.

Here are 6 must-haves for the perfect holiday festivity!


Top-Notch Air Purifier: EnviroKlenz

Now that our work-from-home time seems to be going on indefinitely, the decision to level up on home air quality has gone from goals to let’s make this happen! And with the holidays here we want the best atmosphere for our guests. The EnviroKlenz® Air System Plus is a premier air-purifying solution. But what makes it better than the other air filter out there? EnviroKlenz® Air Cartridge- uses the military-grade EnviroKlenz Technology to remove and destroy toxic and noxious odors, chemicals, and pathogens. The HEPA filter- captures harmful dust, particulate, allergens, pet dander, microorganisms, and more. And while this filter cleans up the air, it is surprisingly not loud. The four-speed blower- offers the quietest and most efficient airflow on the market, and the low speeds allow for near-silent operation. Medium and high-speed settings provide maximum air efficiency at noise levels suitable for residential and commercial use. The UV-C lamps- (2) 9w bulbs provide additional germicidal irradiation and internal cleaning of the system and Indicator lights- inform you when individual UV-C lamps need to be replaced. 


Ultimate Cookware Pot: Our Place Perfect Pot

If looking for the perfect pot that does everything, from boiling water, steaming tamales to slow-roasting, there is that Perfect Pot, like this is the name, and this pot is pretty perfect. Let’s go over some of the stats. First, it is family-sized, meaning you can serve up a hearty stew or boil up enough pasta for everyone. It’s lightweight (4.5 lbs. with lid)if you’re the type of cook juggling many dishes at a holiday party or a family dinner; you’ll appreciate it is easy to carry. Lastly, the nonstick ceramic coating is made without toxic materials; do you ever look at a pan and say to yourself, “hmm…is this safe?” not with this pot; it is free of toxins you can’t pronounce. So get it for your upcoming holiday party and then use it every day for #familylife.
