2014 Holiday Gift Guide Presents Dot & Bo

christmas 14 031

If you’re in the market for unique home décor for holiday gift giving, Dot & Bo may be the answer. Although Dot & Bo offers many incredible choices for recipients, for this review, we’re going to take a look at their Steampunk Clock.

Now, if you aren’t familiar with the term, Steampunk is essentially a style that showcases machinery, especially the 19th century’s. You’ll notice that in Steampunk décor items, you’ll see the gears & various moving internal works. Dot & Bo has taken this trend & provided one of the coolest clocks you’ll ever own.

My kids went nuts over this clock. It’s so much fun to watch! Made from stainless steel & plastic, the numbers are huge although the clock itself is ideally sized for a desktop. Each time the numbers flip, it clicks. They remind me of flipping a Rolodex.  You’ll hear the mechanism running, but it isn’t loud or overpowering as a larger clock might be.christmas 14 033

As an added plus, it only requires one ‘D’ battery. Being cordless not only allows for restraint –free moving, but makes it handy for smaller homes, dorms, or apartments. I don’t have the best eyesight so I Iove that I can literally see the time from across the room. The black & white numbers, highlighted by the stainless, make it an easy fit into any home’s color scheme. You don’t have to be into Steampunk to appreciate its features.

Bonus number two: no assembly! All I had to do was slide the battery into the large battery compartment. Easy-to-read opening & closing instructions are printed on the compartment. No screwdriver. No acrobatics. Just insert the battery & you’re done. Time is set by twisting the dial until the desired time is achieved.

Right now this beauty is selling for $34.99 which is 30% SRP. Haven’t shopped Dot & Bo before? You’re in for a treat! They’ve been featured on a number of Medias such as Refinery 29 & HGTV. Offering gifts from décor to terrariums, Dot & Bo have it all! There’s an entire section on the website for gifts under $25! Now, that’s awesome.
