Awesome Alert : LED Sandals
I recently met up with the fun folks at Teva, and when they saw me coming they excitedly mentioned, “We have a great stocking stuffer for you!”. Now as a Gift Guru you kinda wish you had a dollar every time you’ve heard that, but I’ve got a soft spot of stocking stuffers, so I wanted to hear the pitch.
And that’s when they hit me with the Teva Illum Sandal. At first glance, the Illum looks like a nice, good quality flip-flop sandal. But when you take a closer look, you noticed a small LED light on the forefoot strap on each sandal. Sandals with lights on them- I love it! Teva just sent me a pair for a test drive and they’re with the LEDs a blazin’ they’re total eye candy. But I had to see if these lights would actually get me where I needed to go when it’s dark- like for a stealthy midnight snack. And sure enough, as advertised, these certainly blaze a path in the dark. It’s really not so surprising since the Illum was developed by surfers who were looking for a way to light their way to the waves in the pre-dawn hours.
And another cool this is the LEDs can detach so you can use them as a tiny handheld light in a pinch. Very cool.
So what it boils down to is the Illum hits pretty much every mark to be considered a great Stocking Stuffer. Can if fit in a stocking? Check. Is it reasonably priced? Check. Will it make the recipient smile and “No Way!?! That’s Awesome!”? ….an check.
I’m loving’ the Illum. So will they. A great Stocking Stuffer for him or her.
