My husband and I absolutely LOVED registering for our wedding. Some of our friends had told us about funny and stressful experiences that they had while registering, but we had the best time! We decided to start at Bed Bath & Beyond and then go from there. We had such a great time that we not only registered at Bed Bath & Beyond, but we also decided to register at Dillards and Target! My husband is pretty easy going and we had already discussed certain things that both of us really wanted to register for before we left for the day. However, there was one item that my husband was insistent we have on our wedding registry, an iRobot Roomba!
For those who are not familiar, a Roomba is made by iRobot and is a programmable robotic vacuum cleaner. Basically, one of the best inventions ever made! I too wanted a Roomba, but these are on the pricier side, so I wasn’t getting my hopes up that we would receive this from one of our guests. Thankfully for us, we had some of the most generous friends and family in the world and we did receive our iRobot Roomba as a wedding gift. Jeremy (the hunky husband) was like a little kid at Christmas! He could hardly wait to see it in action and I must admit, I was really excited as well. Watch below to see it in action for yourself!
After owning a Roomba for over a year, I can promise you this is a product you want to have in your home! It saves so much time and it is one less chore you have to determine who gets to complete each week after you get married! Here are my top 5 reasons you should include a Roomba on your wedding registry!
It vacuums for you.
Do I need to say more? How many hours have you spent pushing and pulling a heavy vacuum cleaner? I always hated having to maneuver it around big pieces of furniture and then wanting to cry when I chipped the paint off the side of my coffee table because I rammed the vacuum cleaner into it! I also like to run it right after I cook or bake. It is perfect for coming in after you to pick up crumbs!
You can program it to run any day at any time.
This is such a cool feature and really comes in handy. You can program the Roomba to run at a time that is convenient for you. If you don’t want to hear it running or worry that it will get in your way, just have it run while you are at work or shopping for groceries. You will love coming home to a freshly vacuumed home!
Easily keep the Roomba away from certain items in your home.
You can purchase iRobot’s Virtual Wall Barrier to keep the Roomba from going in certain rooms or to keep it from going near certain items you want to protect. For example, we have our Virtual Wall Barrier next to our bar cart. This is also really helpful at Christmas time when you don’t want the Roomba going near your Christmas tree or presents.
Certain models are specifically designed for long hair and pet hair.
The Roomba’s tangle free technology is perfect for pet owners or if you are like me and have long hair! A few of our friends with pets have purchased the Roomba and they say it is a lifesaver when it comes to pet hair!
It charges itself!
Its navigation system will take it back to the docking station when it is done vacuuming and will automatically start charging. I really love this feature because I don’t have to do anything. I can schedule it to run, let it do its thing, and know that it will go back to the charger and be ready for our next cleaning appointment.
With multiple models and price points to choose from, you can easily find the Roomba that is right for you! If you are looking for the basics, The iRobot Roomba 614 might be the best choice for you. This is lower in price and doesn’t have all the bells and whistles, but it definitely gets the job done! Or, let’s say you want the works! The iRobot Roomba 980 might be more up your alley. While it is higher in price, it comes with all the bells and whistles and then some. If neither option appeals to you, there are plenty in the middle to choose from. We decided to add the iRobot Roomba 860 to our wedding registry. This particular model had the tangle free technology that prevents hair and debris clogs, it is programmable for seven days a week, and we really liked the 3-stage cleaning system on this one. Whichever iRobot Roomba you choose, it will save you time, frustration, and will always leave you with beautifully vacuumed floors!
