BreathableBaby Mesh 3-in-1 Convertible Crib — Beech & Chalkboard
- Price: $399.99
When it comes to your baby and their sleep, you want to make sure you are getting the highest assurance of safety. Luckily, this 3-in-1 Convertible Crib and BreathableBaby’s patented breathable mesh provides a flow of cool ventilation without the risk of limbs getting caught between the slats of the usual wooden cribs.
As one Amazon user, ReviewinMama, said in a top review of the crib: “I got it for my toddler to use as a toddler bed and then for my 3-month-old to move into one my older child grows out of it. It is such a fantastic and unique design. It was not hard to put together, I got it done with a toddler interrupting me within 45 minutes. I get so paranoid about safe sleep and the mesh sides make me feel like my children are so safe.”
The Coleman SaluSpa 2-4 Person Inflatable Round Hot Tub
- Price: $469.99
The luxury of having a jacuzzi used to be only reserved for the rich and wealthy, but now on Amazon you can get an affordable hot tub that has all the bells, whistles, and jets for a price that won’t boil your bank account down to the last cent.
“The Coleman SaluSpa 2-4 Person Inflatable Round Hot Tub is one of the highest-rated versions you can find on Amazon,” said Olivia John, a lifestyle blogger at My Sparkling Life. “The black and brown designs make it suitable for adults, and you can heat the water up to 104 degrees. The 60 active water jets make it a fully functioning hot tub, and you get chemical floaters in the package to keep the water clean.”
Even with the outdoor cover, John points out that the $449 price tag makes it one of the lowest-costing hot tubs on the market. Looking for a fancier model? John recommends The 9. SereneLife 4-Person Portable Hot Tub.
“[It is] a bit pricier at $600, but it has remote control LED lights!” John exclaimed. “Additionally, it lets you change the jet function and water temperature without having to leave the tub.”
