Thanks to CableKeeps for partnering with me on this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own, as always.
If you have tweens or teens at home, or perhaps even little ones who love their tablets, then you would probably consider yourself to be a fully “wired” family. I know my family regularly makes use of our Intel AIO computer, the laptop, our 2 smartphones, the Chromebook, the iPad, and coming to our house this Christmas, two Kindle Fires for kids. That’s 8 devices for a family of 4.
So, um, yeah, we’re pretty plugged in!
CableKeeps is a product that is designed for families just like mine, or really for anyone who makes frequent use of electronic devices that need a cable cord (so that would be pretty much everyone!). CableKeeps come in a variety of colors to meet individual preferences (this is also nice if you want every person in your family to have their own color to distinguish cords).
CableKeeps also come in a variety of styles to best accommodate different types of cable cords. Goldie is designed for iPhone, iPod or iPad Mini. Gulp is the CableKeeps of choice for your iPad. There are also some great options for folks with international adapters (my sister-in-law and brother-in-law live in Switzerland…CableKeeps are still a great gift idea for them!).
CableKeeps are a very handy little device to keep your cables from getting tangled up in your purse or bag, which is so nice for traveling. They can also eliminate the plethora of long cables you might have sticking out of your outlets. Those always look messy and CableKeeps can keep the cords looking nice and tidy. If members of your family tend to argue over which cords belong to them, CableKeeps can nip that “borrowing” business in the bud so that everyone always knows which cords belong to them. Additionally, the Goldie CableKeep is designed to be a pedestal for your phone, which will keep it off the floor or the counter, and therefore, keep it cleaner. My phone is on the floor or the kitchen counter pretty much every time it gets charged, so I think this is a really nice feature.
Also? CableKeeps are adorable. Their fun design combined with their excellent utility and their budget-friendly price point (starting at $13!) makes this an excellent holiday gift idea for pretty much anyone on your list. You can even buy the Goldie Plus CableKeep with a 5w charger and the optional Micro USB cable in case your family doesn’t have as many as it needs due to lose and improper storage. CableKeeps are 100% recyclable for when the time comes to get an entirely different set of cords and chargers, and they are proudly made in the USA.
