This is totally the gift to get someone with a young child. Especially if that child’s name is Damien. Though he appears cute and cuddly with an enticing, “Hug Me,” embroidered on his fuzzy little chest, mark my words – this bear is not your friend! Give him a squeeze and he’ll show you his true colors. I’m guessing he’s either a sailor or a truck driver in disguise.
How’s this for a miniature stroke of genius? Functioning like a yardstick (only 3 inches rather than 3 feet), Cardstick Ruler Stickers give additional functionality to your already overused credit cards. Okay, maybe mine is just overused, but whatever. For a mere $5 you get a set of three ruler stickers – clear, white and yellow. Each sticker wraps perfectly around the front and back of a card and it doesn’t interfere with the magnetic strip. They also work great on other devices like iPhones or cameras!
That’s exactly what these Russian high school kids did for their yearbook photos! But instead of that corny, fall JC Penney backdrop, they used something relevant, and created it themselves. Instead, they posed in front of a chalkboard with drawings that reflected their personality and showed off their interests, making each student’s photo unique. I wish my school had done something like this. I actually have a couple of sorority photos from college where I had to wear a velvet drape. Do you know what those even are? Hideous. That’s all you need to know.
I desperately need this product, aptly named DrawerDecor by it’s creator, Keith Neilson. Not only is it totally functional, but it’s kitchy and stylish with it’s bright color options. DrawerDecor is a DIY system of modular silicone sheets and dividers that can be trimmed fit your drawers. Each 16-piece set comes with one nonslip BaseMat made from food-grade silicone and an assortment of Divitz dividers, which stick to the BaseMat so you can create perfectly sized storage slots for even your most irregularly sized tools and utensils. So yay me, now I don’t have to rifle through a stack of forks, spatulas, can openers and a whole slew of shit I only use once a year to get to my pizza cutter!
Let’s face it, we’ve all received, at one time or another, a gift from someone that has been, let’s just say – less than optimal. Basically, it sucked ass. This scenario is the sole reason I am 100% against obligatory gift giving. Christmas, birthdays, baby showers – all events for obligatory gift giving. Don’t even get me started on office gift swaps – OF ANY KIND.
Well now, thanks to the folks at Enjoy This Beautiful Day, we can put an end to all the shitty gifts with their handy Gift Complaint Form. They suggest to give them to the recipient with the gift. I say keep them on hand and use them when you are the recipient.
Growing up, my dad used to tell me stories of how his mom (my paternal grandmother) had issues about using the same towel to dry her face as her nether regions after bathing. Something I had never considered myself and possibly one of the strangest things I had ever heard. Well, apparently it’s a real thing and my Nana can rest her soul knowing she wasn’t the only one with some crazy washing phobia. The introduction of tact-towels eliminates the risk of drying your freshly cleansed face in the threads of a towel where your partner has just dried his ball-bag.
Um, okay, not exactly what I was thinking, but point taken.
