Shady Lady recommends... Pump Gloves {review}

It happens every year.

You've whittled down your gift buying list to a manageable size, and you know exactly what you're going to get for the people left on the list.

Except one...

Maybe she's a co-worker whom you don't know all that well, so it's hard to "personalize" a gift.

Maybe she's a mother-in-law who is hard to please (no offense to mothers-in-law!).

Maybe she's a wealthy relative who already has everything -- and I mean everything.

Maybe she's a mail carrier, delivery person, babysitter, hairdresser, teacher, Secret Pal, helpful neighbor...

No matter who she is, chances are she pumps her own gas.

Take a look around next time you're out driving. How many full-service stations are there anymore? Not many. Most gas stations are self-service now.

We all know what it's like to pump gas in cold weather. The metal of the nozzle can be ice-cold! Not to mention standing there in freezing temperatures while pumping gas.

A recent new law eliminated the little "auto-flow" latch bar that would allow you to keep the pump going while you let go of the handle. Which means that you must keep your hand on it to pump your gas into your vehicle.

Ever think about the millions of germs on those handles? Me either, until I heard about a great new product called Pump Gloves designed specifically for women who pump their own gas.
Pump Pure, Pretty and Protected.

You might wear your winter gloves to pump gas when the weather is cold. But they are usually bulky, right? Not to mention you've still touched millions of germs with those gloves, and now you're transferring those germs to your wallet, purse, steering wheel, face...


Pump Gloves are designed to be used not only for pumping gas but doing other things around your car, like a self-service car wash or drive-up ATM for instance. They come in their own zip-lock bag which stores easily in your car's glove compartment. You put them on to pump gas and you take them off and put them away in their own bag when finished.

Your hands never touch the pump handle. And they are thin enough for pressing any electronic buttons you need to press on the pump itself (unlike heavy winter gloves which usually must be removed for that!).

Bottom line? Pump Gloves make the perfect gift for any woman on your gift list, but especially for those who seem to have everything and are hard to find gifts for. I bet they don't have a pair of Pump Gloves in their glove box!

Pump Gloves add Comfort, Class and Style to Pumping Gas. Available in Classic Black or Light Gray, the gloves are machine washable and one size fits all. And at only $14.95 pair, they are also affordable for everyone on your gift list.
