I love shopping for inspiration and the Amazon “New Year, New You” store is no exception. There are lots of fantastic products under really useful categories, like beauty, fitness or getting organised.

The category that struck my attention though, was automate your home. I love gadgets and the idea of having powerful products around your home to make it safer and cool, of course. Like Ring for your door to see who is at your front door, or smart products that allow you to control your light bulbs from an app. It’s amazing.

The Amazon Echo is a new thing for the Constant household and we love it. The children spend ages telling it to play different songs. They literally listen to the song they choose for 5 seconds and then choose another one. It’s the thrill of the game, not the actual fact they want to listen to the songs. Poor Alexa is going to be worn out by the time the month is up.

I had no idea there were so many fun Amazon products like the Echo now: Echo Show, Echo spot, Amazon Echo Dot and Echo sub to name a handful.

I didn’t know that you can link an Echo to smart products, so we can ask Alexa to turn the lights off and on. Or ask Alexa to make the mood lighting red instead of the normal white.

What would you choose from the “New Year, New You” store? Also, to you have an Amazon Echo and if so, what fun things do you ask Alexa? I am still learning. Maybe I should ask her what new years resolutions to set!
