From holiday cooking disasters to proper party etiquette, holiday events often prove to be a point of stress during what should be the happiest time of the year.

·              79 percent of Americans prefer a practical gift that they could use in their home over a trendy novelty gift
o   Eliminate unnecessary stress with a little gifting sensibility like a great blender or stand mixer
·              Cleaning up is one of the main holiday hosting party poopers – 85 percent of Americans have avoided making a certain food because of the cleanup associated with it

When you think of a bungee whats the first thing that comes to mind? I know for me its a cord that gives slack but when it gets to far it bounces right back. The bungee is exactly like that! While I was pregnant I lost my keys often but if I had only the bungee I wouldn't have to fear. 
With a simple text message, Bungee tags aim to end the problem of lost valuables, forever! Bungee allows people to anonymously tag their property and link it to
 their cell phone number and email address. If an item is found, the tag
 on the item instructs the finder to send a text message to Bungee. Bungee
 immediately alerts the owner that their property has been found, and then
 bridges an anonymous conversation between the 2 parties so that a return
 can be arranged. Tested throughout the country, Bungee tags have an 85%
 success rate. 

They are also priced affordably, at $15 for one year coverage, $35 for 5 years of coverage, and $95 for a family plan that covers 5 individuals
 for 5 years, making it a realistic and useful gift for anyone. 

Each set of tags covers 22 items, including a wallet card and keychain tag (the
family plan covers 110 items). Bungee tags can be applied and used on any
 anything including sunglasses, keys, wallets, laptops, cell phones,
