My Top 5 Products of 2016

It’s been another great year for My Family Stuff. Since my blog is primarily a review blog, I’ve had to honour to try out tons of great products – some of which have stood out more than others.

Every year I like to look back and highlight my top 5 products. It was so easy to pick out my favourites this year because they are products that I use all the time and truly love.

1. Heschel Supply Co. backpacks

I heard about Herschel Supply Co. backpacks when I was preparing for a trip to Belize with my husband. I knew I needed to pack smartly and needed a great, sturdy backpack. My search brought me to Herschel Supply Co. I immediately loved the look of their backpacks and that they are a Canadian company (their HQ is just hours away from where I live).

I cannot express how much I love our backpacks. They are far superior than ANY backpack I have ever owned. We have used them on many trips since Belize. My husband often uses his Lennox backpack as his only travel bag on business trips.

We’ve had the opportunity to try other great Herschel products this year (including their kid’s backpacks and beanies). We are pleased with all the Herschel products we’ve tested and purchased. I can’t wait to add to my Herschel collection this year!

2. Chef’s Plate Meal Delivery program

I’m not a very creative cook (you could guess this by the amount of recipes I post on the blog) so when Chef’s Plate reached out to me about reviewing their Meal Delivery program I was very curious.

They sent me two meals to start and I was immediately impressed. I couldn’t believe how absolutely EVERYTHING was included to make a balanced meal in one box. The ingredients were fresh, the recipes original and each portion was quite large (enough to have left-overs!!). I have since ordered Chef’s Plate since my review post and have always been pleased with the results.

I will be continuing to order Chef’s Plate in the new year. I think Chef’s Plate is a brilliant service for busy families.

If you want to try Chef’s Plate be sure to use my promo code (#MYBABYSTUFF) to get 3 free plates. Trust me, you’ll be impressed.

3. Dupray ONE Steam Cleaner

I never imagined my house was so yucky until I started using the Dupray ONE steam cleaner. My sister and I were sent this little steam cleaner to test out and were immediately hooked. What an awesome product.

Dupray ONE steam cleaner review

The Dupray ONE steam cleaner is very easy to use and gets every little nook and cranny clean. I’ve pulled out the steam cleaner periodically but plan on doing a BIG spring cleaning with it very soon.

4. Skechers GoAir running shoes

Every week I go to a TRX class and a HITT class. I’ve been wearing my Skechers GoAir shoes for these classes since I’ve gotten them. I love how comfortable they are and how supported my ankles feel in them.

Skechers GoAir are stylish and are great for just about any workout. I highly recommend getting a pair for your New Year’s workout regimen.

5. Columbia Mach 38 Hybrid Jacket

I had a hard time putting this jacket away when fall arrived. This jacket was my go-to jacket all spring and summer. It fits incredibly well and packs up small (perfect for travel!). This jacket has Columbia’s exclusive Omni-Heat technology which means the material will keep you cool or warm when needed. It comes in many great colours.

Columbia Sportswear review

I highly recommend picking up one of these jackets when they are back in stock this spring.
