It’s that time of year where I’m racking my brain to find something amazing for my nephews. They are 9 and 12 so it’s getting harder and harder to find things they think are “cool”. Luckily, GOTRAX makes a variety of amazing scooters, skateboards and hoverboards that will make me the cool Auntie again this year. I chose a hoverboard not only for the coolness factor but because it was something I knew my brother would enjoying trying out with them. With it’s high weight capacity, I know it’s a gift the whole family can get behind!

Now, I am not the most coordinated person in the world. My husband nick named me grace for a very fitting reason. However, I did try this out and I did not fall flat on my face as I assumed I would. It does take some balance and coordination but if I can get the hang of it kids should have no problem! I can’t wait to see my nephews enjoy this (when it’s not freezing out in New England). It’s a really fun idea and perfect for holiday gifting!
