KitchenAid accessories make a great Mother’s Day gift

Recently, we have been reminding our readers that Mother's Day is just around the corner, on May 12. This special holiday gives you a great opportunity to say thanks to the woman that you love for everything she does. Whether she holds the family together by doing the cooking and driving or she is more of a symbolic figurehead in your home, this is a wonderful chance to honor mom for all she does. 

There are a number of gifts that are sure to make your mother smile this Mother's Day, but only you know which one she will like best. If there are small children in your family, she might love a present like the exciting game Suspend, which we talked about yesterday. But if your mom is more of an avid baker, get her a present she will really use from the KitchenAid brand. 

This company has a long history of creating some of the nicest and most reliable kitchen appliances around. From the iconic Stand Mixer to the hand mixers, blenders and accessories that go with each of these products, she's sure to love a brand new tool like this. 

Whether you want to give her a new capability for her existing appliance or commemorate your love for her by providing her with an exciting new helper, you can make this Mother's Day special with a KitchenAid product. To make it even nicer, give the woman you love the ingredients to bake her favorite dessert as well, and help her to do the baking. 

This way, she'll feel loved and appreciated. Turning a gift into an experience is always the best way to commemorate an occasion, and Mother's Day is no exception. 

Allay spring allergies by making sure you have a dehumidifier

While the presence of flowers and budding trees is certainly a welcome sight after a winter that overstayed its welcome, the downside of everything finally turning green again is that it means the pollen from these plants will aggravate the allergy symptoms of many. 

If you're allergic to pollen, the springtime may cause your symptoms to worsen. Since the weather is nicer, you'll be tempted to spend more time outside, but the presence of these buds typically means that there will be  a lot of allergens in the air. And while there's little you can do to keep it from filling the air outside, experts recommend that reducing indoor allergens can be effective in relieving the symptoms of those who suffer from seasonal aggravation. 

One easy way to improve the air quality in your home is to use a dehumidifier. These simple appliances work by reducing the moisture in the air of a given space, thus limiting allergens that might be present from mold or mildew and making the air much more pleasant to breathe. Allergists frequently recommend these devices to their patients, especially those who suffer from allergic asthma. 

During the spring, an increase in rain combines with a thaw of ice and snow. This can lead to flooding in basements and a lot of humidity. Even if your allergies are worse outdoors, the presence of these problematic allergens indoors will often aggravate your symptoms. 

If you have seasonal allergy sufferers in your home, protect them by making sure you're doing everything you can to ease their allergies. Keep windows closed and use an electric fan to circulate air instead. Then be sure to keep the air as clean as possible with the help of a dehumidifier.

Get more fun out of your home brewing system

There is no denying that the Mr. Beer home brewing system is one of the most fun gifts that you can get a fiend or loved one. It is so valued that despite its novelty many people choose to buy and use the kit for themselves in order to get started in the exciting world of home brewing. Whether you choose to purchase this system for yourself or were lucky enough to receive it as a present for a special occasion, there are no ends to the amount of joy a product like this one can bring you.

The brewing process usually takes about three weeks before the beer is fully finished and ready to drink, but the fun doesn't have to end after you've shared the homemade beers with your friends. Now is the time to ask for an honest critique from everyone who sampled the beer so that you can find out what you should do better.

Then do a little research in order to find out how to improve upon your technique so that your next batch is even more delicious than the last. Once you're ready to go again, you don't have to spend money on the deluxe home brewing system another time. Instead, simply purchase the Mr Beer Brew Pack and get ready for a second round of hand-brewed beers that are even better than your first attempt.

Your friends will appreciate this process too, since they can act as the official tasters every time you come up with a new batch. Soon enough they'll be asking for your beer by the case, all thanks to the Mr. Beer Deluxe Home Brewing System.
