Scottie Inspired: Custom Pet Portraits on Etsy
First up were Custom Pet Portraits from Etsy Shop Scottie Inspired for $49.99. You send a picture of your pet to ScottieInspired, and they will send you back a digitally created portrait to your e-mail address. You can then print it on any paper and in any size. For example, how fabulous would this look on a canvas? The bright colors used in the portrait of Blake, Hoda’s dog, really popped and looked amazing!

Hoda: Emerson Portable Karaoke Machine Review
If you are too nervous to belt out karaoke at a bar, Emerson has your back covered with the $49 Portable Karaoke Machine. This way, you and your friends can just do karaoke in your backyard and dodge all of those high-priced drinks at the bar you just love singing “Don’t Stop Believing” at. Or if you are Kathie Lee, you will be singing “I wanna Hoda on Your Kotb” (which is the chorus line for the song that Kathie Lee wrote for Hoda’s 49th Birthday!).
Louisiana Crawfish Company Party Pack Review
The Louisiana Crawfish Company will send you live or steamed crawfish in their Party Pack for $49.99. It’s more than just the crawfish, though. Since it’s a party pack, you get Mardi Gras beads, bibs, and even sauces, so that you can have your own southern-style party. Hoda even demonstrated how to eat crawfish: you suck the head and pinch the tail!
Stick N Find Bluetooth Location Tracker Review
We all lose or misplace very important things from time to time, from our wallets to out car keys, and the Stick N Find Buetooth Location Tracker has come up with an answer for that with this Bluetooth Tracker for $49.99. Simply stick the small trackers on whatever it is you don’t want to lose, download the app to your smartphone, and whenever you need to find something, pull the app up, and a GPS tracker will lead you to your belongings.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: Sound Oasis Sleep Therapy Pillow with Speakers
A great new pillow allows you to listen to music as you’re drifting off to sleep. The Sound Oasis Sleep Therapy Pillow with Volume Control Speakers. You plug your iPod into the pillow, pick out your most relaxing tune, and then let it carry you off to dreamland – perfect for the music lover that Hoda is!
