Add Some Holiday Cheer to Your Car

I get emails every day asking me to review a product, or tell you all about a new service/app/website.  Some of them I delete immediately knowing that they just wouldn't be a good fit.  Most I have to research and decide whether it is something I'd be interested in trying out myself or endorsing for all of my friends (you guys are my friends, right?).  And, some I know immediately that I want to share with the whole world...this was not one of those products.

When I received the email for WOW Antlers , I laughed and was ready to move on with my day.  Not that there's anything wrong with the concept, just that I couldn't imagine myself driving down the road with antler ears.  As fate would have it, my husband and children happened to walk by my laptop at that moment and BEGGED me to try them out.  They really really wanted to have antler ears for the car, so like any good mother, I gave in and agreed to try them out - and I'm so glad I did!

The antlers themselves are actually quite nice.  The package came with two wind and snow-resistant lighted antlers with attachment rod and clip and 1 nose.  They are easy to install and only take a few seconds to attach.  The antlers themselves clip to the top of the window and then get rolled up, and the nose has a twist tie that feeds through your grate and is then trimmed.

The directions say that they are not intended for use over 45mph so we used them to drive around town and make our way to Chick-Fil-A.  We absolutely got some strange looks with our Reindeer Van, which I attribute to the fact that it was only a few days after Halloween, but the kids that saw us were so excited.  They pointed and smiled, and a few even waved.  I kind of felt like Mrs. Clause herself!

These are going to be a huge hit for our annual trip to see Christmas Lights.  We'll be providing some lights of our own!  In the meantime, I've found the perfect compromise so the kids won't want the antlers on the minivan all the time!

Wow Antlers is giving away a set of Reindeer Antlers to one of our lucky readers.  You can have the coolest Christmas car in the school pick-up line - just use the Rafflecopter form below!

  3. Our favorite holiday tradition is our Christmas baking day -- my mom, sister and I still get together once each December to have a huge baking day, even though we all live 2-3 hrs apart.

    Love them on the bike :) I'm thinking a snow reindeer after the first big snowfall... It would also be a perfect silly gift for a certain brother-in-law.

Each time a new member of the family is born or married in, either they make their own name ornament or someone in the family makes one for them. It is such a fun time! Making them and putting them on the tree. I can't wait for my husband to make his this year!
