If you are going camping this summer or planning a July 4th picnic on-the-go, then our newest product is perfect for you - the Lifetime Folding Tailgate Table!  Although we designed this new table with a tailgater in mind, don't let the name mislead you - this recreational table is ideal for picnics, camping, or any outdoor get-together. Simply put, this table is basically like a Lifetime banquet table with a metal grilling table attached to it - it saves you from lugging around two tables all the time.  It has a 5'6" x 28" high-density polyethylene (HDPE) tabletop for prepping or serving food.  (You can even easily sit four people around the table to use it as a dining table.)  At the end of the table,  there is an attached 28" x 15" heavy-duty grill rack with utensil holder.   But, the b...

Thanks to everyone who entered this month's giveaway to try and win the Lifetime 7'x7' Shed for their Dad for Father's Day.  We received some very touching stories about how much your Dads mean to you and why you wanted to win this shed for Dad.   But, in the end, the winner picked by random.org was Sonya R. of Knoxville, TX.  Congrats, Sonya.  We hope your husband enjoys this year's Father's Day present for years to come! We also heard some great feedback about which features you liked best about this relatively-new Lifetime 7'x7' Shed.  By far (and not surprisingly), the feature most of you liked the best was the full-length roof skylight.  That's a pretty awesome addition to a shed!  Other popular answers were the shatterproof windows that open and the customizable shelving. I... More

Last month, Katie shared with you that we have lots of new products on the horizon.  I'm happy to tell you that one of these new products is a Lawn & Garden product that is now available… a Lifetime Adirondack Chair! If you're still wondering what to get Dad for Father's Day, this is a perfect gift to give your Dad or husband to help him relax this summer in his backyard, on the front porch, or on the beach with his feet in the sand.  (It's also good for moms too, so don't feel guilty about purchasing a matching chair for her!) What will Dad love about the new Lifetime Adirondack Chair?  Lots of things, starting with the way it looks.  It's manly - no fluffy cushions or dainty wicker.  This is a sip-your-beverage and admire-your-lawn-work kind of chair.   (But, as you ca...

We have great news! Mark Whiting, chief financial officer of Lifetime Products Inc, was named a CFO of the Year in the June issue of Utah Business Magazine (read all about it). Whiting was recognized for his 22-year contribution in building a “recession-proof” company, and a company that has become an international player in the sporting goods and outdoor products industry. The first time you meet Mark Whiting, you are surprised by his genuine warmth. He laughs often, listens attentively, and usually refers to himself as a “bean-counter”. When asked about being nominated for the Utah Business CFO of the Year Award, he bursts into laughter (I experienced that one myself). Though he would not say he deserves this award, the growing numbers speak for themselves …...

Last summer on this blog, we wrote about one of our newest products, the Lifetime Tru-Motion™ Cane.  Here at Lifetime, we predicted this cane's breakthrough design was going to change the way we all look at canes…. and we were right!  I'm thrilled to tell you that the Lifetime Tru-Motion™ Cane was named "Best New Product" by Drug Store News. The award was bestowed recently at ECRM's Home Health Care 2011 EPPS Show and is given in recognition of the best new product invention from the more than 50 suppliers at the event.  Obviously, we are excited that we have an award-winning product.  But, we are even more excited to know that this product is truly making a difference in people's lives.  Former American Medical Association President Dr. John C. Nelson even said, "The Lif... More

 This giveaway has ended.  Wondering what to get dear old Dad for Father's Day?  (Yes, in case you haven't glanced at a calendar recently, Father's Day is just 11 days away… June 19.)  Last year, I wrote a blog post with some unique Lifetime product ideas to buy for Dad. (Which, I might add, is still a very useful list to read for ideas.)  But, this year, I figured rather than just giving you ideas for Dad, why not actually give you a gift for Dad?  And, if we're going to give away a gift Dad's are sure to love, we might as well make it one of our most popular items on every Dad's list…a shed! That's right, this month, one lucky winner will win a Lifetime 7'x7' shed to give to Dad.  Umm, can you say ultimate Dad's Day Gift?!  Seriously, what Dad doesn't dream of having hi... More

As consumers, we have become accustomed to looking for safety features when making important purchase decisions, especially when it comes to products like vehicles, power tools, and baby items.  But, did you know you should also look for safety features when buying a folding table, too?   In my past few blog posts, I've been diving into various topics that help you make more educated folding table purchases.  Unfortunately, probably the most overlooked features consumers consider when buying a folding table are safety features. The last thing you need is for your table to collapse while you are using it! So, what should you look for to ensure you are purchasing a safe table?  A secure locking mechanism for the table legs.  Now, the tricky part is that locking mechanisms will vary depending on t...

You've probably already gotten this question... but how was your Memorial Day weekend? Ours was great! As you probably read in our recent post, once again Lifetime partnered with the Utah Military Families Foundation (UMFF) to celebrate Memorial Day with our annual "Salute Our Troops" event. We put on a big sale at our Lifetime Store in Riverdale, complete with a free-throw contest, free ice cream, and kids activities-- with the goal to donate 5% of all proceeds to the UMFF. It was a blast! We're excited to announce that we even surpassed last year's donation for this great organization, and raised $1,712! We are proud to have been able to contribute to a cause that helps military families in our own community.  Thank you to all veterans past and present who serve our countr... More

What's in a name?
Interesting littlestory here. Irecently received this email from Joanne Nelson of Exeter, Rhode Island: I purchased a Lifetime Personal Table several years ago and I love it. I am a quilter and this little table goes with me when I go to classes because I can set my sewing machine on it and adjust the height to exactly what I need so it is ergonomically correct for my sitting position However... I recently brought my table to a quilting retreat to let a 84 yr old lady, who is tiny, borrow my table so she could sew comfortably for the 5 day retreat. She was so happy about the table that I wanted to buy one for her. I found one and brought it home only to be very disappointed in the redesign of it. My table has metal legs and they are secured into a metal frame work so the legs can't come out very easily by accident if the t...
We're Giving Away $700 in Lifetime Store Gift Certificates!
This giveaway has ended. This week, we asked fans on our Facebook page what product they would like us to giveaway for our final monthly giveaway of 2011. It turns out, when you make so many great products, you get many great answers! The majority of you wanted us to giveaway a shed. But, picnic tables, swingsets, raised garden beds, and tables and chairs were also voted as favorites. Oh, decisions, decisions. Sigh. Know what? Since it's the Christmas season and many of you have products from Lifetime on your list that you want to give (either to someone else or just yourself), I think it would be much more fun to give away gift certificates to the Lifetime Store so YOU can pick whatever product (or maybe even more than one) you want! So, we'll be giving away not one, not two, but THREE gift certificates redeemable in the ...
