Gadgets or clutter? You decide.

Christmas is over.

You’ve unwrapped your gifts.

Now you have to decide what to do with the things you were given. Some gifts are easy . A soft blanket or throw, clothes, books, or garage tool rack are great gifts that are easy to put to use.

However, sometimes we receive something we’re not quite sure what to do with. Yes, it was a thoughtful, generous gift, but will we ever use it?

The answer will determine whether it stays a gift or becomes clutter. I was lucky this year with the gifts I received. My 26-year-old daughter, Hannah gave me a really cool garbage can with recycling and garbage receptacles (and two really good books). Twenty-two-year-old Isaac gave me a garage tool storage rack for my rakes and shovels. My high-school student, Mecca, gave Bonnie and me a great candle.

I love all of those gifts, which are being used today.

I looked up some of the most interesting gifts out there. I did not receive them, but I thought they were interesting.

• Dodow is a metronome-light scientifically designed to block out overactive thought patterns and lull you into a deep, peaceful sleep – fast. (A good book does the same for me - 100 percent of the time.)

• A scale by FitTrack uses data to tell you about your body fat percentage, muscle and bone mass, hydration levels, and more important information that can help you make smarter decisions about your health. (Ummm, no thanks. I don’t need this scale to tell me my body fat is off the charts. My mirror does that well, thank you.)

• Neck Hammock is a simple and patented design that allows you to comfortably use your device no matter where you are or what. Only you have to hook it to the wall, lay down, and position your head in it. (Isn’t that what a couch or bed are for?)

Whatever the gift, I hope you enjoy yours and that you had a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
