Grandma (and Grandpa) may be one of the 48 million Americans who have significant hearing loss, and who's physician may not have screened their hearing. For $69 your gift of the iHEARtest(tm) gives grandma the ability to screen her own hearing from the convenience and privacy of her home, and take the 6 minute iHEARtest(tm) assessment to immediately learn what her Hearing Number(tm) is on a scale from 1 to 5 (from profound hearing loss to good hearing in each ear).

As counter-intuitive as it seems, white noise helps people sleep. The soft whir drowns out other sounds and creates an audible cushion, turning any bedroom into a haven. Unlike digital-based machines and loops, Snooz features a real fan, creating a natural, comforting sound that never changes throughout the night. And, with the fan inside the sleek, modern-looking case, there’s no blowing cold air to disrupt sleep.
Portable and stylish, Snooz has completely customizable levels, from a light purr to a throaty buzz. It even features a nursery setting. (Many sleep machines exceed safety standards for both babies and even adults, according to a study reported by the New York Times.) And, of course, there’s an app to control power, volume and scheduled shut-off times.
