Safety expert Jenna Watson showed us products that women can use as personal protection during the holidays, including date rape test coasters, hand-free clutch wrap instead of a purse, a portable breathalyzer and portable iPhone battery charger.
SHOLDIT Clutch Wrap, $49-$79
While at bars and holiday parties, it’s always tempting to set you purse down or hang it on the back of a chair, making you easy prey for theft. The SHOLDIT Clutch Wrap is a new patent-pending product that keeps a woman’s essentials discreetly secure while also keeping her hands free of a handbag. At first glance, the SHOLDIT Clutch Wrap looks like a traditional infinity scarf or wrap. Upon further investigation, you’ll find two spacious zippered pockets perfectly sized to safely and discreetly carry a woman’s top essentials such as credit cards, keys, cash, and a cell phone so you can leave the handbag at home.
