When I was growing up, my mom and grandparents used to buy our house a gift. It was normally new pots and pans for the kitchen or a vacuum cleaner for the carpets. I decided this year to carry this tradition over and purchase our home an Amazon Echo Dot.
Ever since setting it up, I have purchased some items to go with it that have made my life so much easier! Keep reading to learn more about how the Echo Dot can improve your day-to-day life.
STRETCHING YOUR BRAIN
I now load up the machine with coffee grinds and water the night before. When I wake up, I simply say "Alexa, turn on the coffee machine." She turns it on for me and it can make itself while I get ready for the day. After that, I just have to add in my sugar and creamer and I'm on my way out the door!
PRO-TIP: You don't have to spend a ton of money on Amazon products. Check on Amazon to see if the plug, smartbulb, or smart TV is compatible with Alexa!

In honor of Black Friday, which is today in the states, I thought I would go ahead and share my Christmas wish list in case anyone out there may be wondering what they want for Christmas!
I've added the link to the products I want so you can check them out for yourself! Check out my list here:
2ND GENERATION ECHO DOT
I am interested in the Echo Dot (2nd Generation) bundled with the Sengled 2 Bulb Kit. The bulbs are "smart lightbulbs" that can be controlled by Alexa, the virtual assistant used by Amazon. I am thinking of just getting this for Jonathan and I as a household gift!
FOLDING TV TRAY TABLE
A LABEL MAKER
HIGH-QUALITY DSLR CAMERA
I had a former boss who said that her family often bought her a new camera lens or some sort of camera equipment each year for Christmas, so I could build up my collection throughout the years!
