When it comes times for an engagement party, baby shower, wedding, or housewarming, no one wants to show up empty-handed. Gift-giving is a great way to show appreciation to your friends and a chance to shop for something fun! However, the pressure to find just the right gift can be anxiety inducing: you don’t want to show up with the same old thing everyone else is bringing (who needs another scented candle, anyway?), or something that your host will politely thank you for and then relegate to the back of a closet. This summer, give gifts that are practical, fun, and sure to be enjoyed for years to come!
The Mastrad Thermo-Sensor Spoon is the ideal gift for moms and dads-to-be – as well as for anyone who loves to spend quality time in the kitchen!

For foods like caramel, jam, or baby food, where an accurate temperature reading is essential, nothing beats the practicality of the Mastrad Thermo-Sensor Spoon. Made from durable silicone, it also has a memory function that stores minimum and maximum temperature from previous uses for maximum convenience!
