Mahogany 2-Drawer Chocolate Box

Mahogany 2-Drawer Chocolate BoxValentine’s Day is coming up quickly, again. You know what that means; flowers and chocolates!

So today I bring you chocolate, and I’m not messing around this time. ZChocolat has quite possibly the World’s best chocolates, as far as I can tell. I was just clicking around their site and it’s seriously impressive stuff. See the little assortment in the drawer in the picture there? I thought that the brown and white things were little boxes that the chocolate came in, but no, that is the chocolate! Each one is individually numbered with a real nice font.

Since I can’t come anywhere close to typing something as magical as they have, here’s what ZChocolat has to say about this 30 piece Mahogany set:

Chocolate Reflections. A very wise man once mused Fortunate is the chocolate thus roaming the world through women’s smiles finds its death over a flavorful and melting kiss in their mouths. This quote by Anthelme Brillat-Savarin comes to life in a most sumptuous way as the 30 chocolates in this selection are unveiled. Two drawers open to reveal a magnificent display of handmade chocolates held in a beautiful mahogany box that is adorned with the French version of Monsieur Savarin’s words. An evening of chocolate and poetry has never been so inviting.

See? So if you have the funds (I know I don’t) and want to show your true love how much she means to you, and if she loves chocolate, then do it the right way!

Even if you don’t plan on buying any, go check out the site here. It’s crazy impressive for a chocolate site.

Clocky

ClockyKnow somebody who has trouble waking up? Do they even constantly lose the battle with the alarm clock snooze button? Well, you can help them become more punctual in an entertaining way with Clocky!

Here’s how the little guy works. You choose the length of the snooze time from 0 to 9 minutes. Clocky will let you snooze one time. The next time you hit snooze, it’s go time! Clocky will bail off of the nightstand (or any surface safely dropping up to 3 feet) onto your carpet or hard floor and look for a hiding spot, beeping all along the way. The sheer frustration is sure to wake up the snoozy sleeper.

There are plenty of other things Clocky does such as light up the display when you hit snooze when the alarm isn’t activated, warn you well in advance when the battery is low, and can even be put into stationary mode if you don’t want to chase him the next morning.

Help wake that sleepy head up!

Transformers Movie 2 Bumblebee Role Play Helmet

Transformers Movie 2 Bumblebee Role Play HelmetWell this is awesome. You can give a lucky kid the chance to be the hero Transformer from the latest movies! I still remember my Optimus Prime transformer I had growing up. I don’t remember Bumblebee, but he’s the favorite today for sure. This helmet is pretty sweet. Here’s some highlights of the mask/helmet:

  • Awesome helmet remixes your voice just like the BUMBLEBEE voice from the TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN movie and features cool conversion sounds and movie-voice phrases.
  • Suit up just like the BUMBLEBEE character and prepare to save the universe with your amazing voice-mixer helmet.
  • Easy-to-adjust straps help you get a comfortable fit.
  • The helmet also plays realistic conversion sounds of the BUMBLEBEE.
  • Three different modes and awesome electronic features.

I really don’t know much about these except that you can get all kinds of pretty awesome contraptions for these little furballs to run around in.

Happy Birthday Cards from Tiny Prints

Happy BirthdayCards are a key element of gift giving. These particular cards are designed with corporate birthdays in mind. It’s a nice design that fits any style birthday.

These cards are personalizable, which I don’t think is a word, but I’m going to use it anyway. Why not stock up on birthday cards anyway? See, I say that because the minimum order for these cards is 25. That may be a bit much for the casual gift-giver, but for a company with hundreds of employees, this makes it nice and easy to distribute good wishes on those many special days.

Get a lot of cards here.

If you don’t believe me, or just want to get super excited about getting some of these for you and all of your friends, check out this little demonstration video:

Graduation Invitations

Graduation InvitationIt’s that time of year again. Many young and not as young students are finally to that point where they get to try and figure out what to do next in life. Sweet, sweet graduation.

Whether it be high school graduation, college graduation, or graduation from some crazy thing I haven’t even heard of, TinyPrints has what you’re looking for. I’ve searched many a site for professional looking invitations that are affordable and customizable, and I honestly can find none better than TinyPrints.

In this day and age, when many of us have a nice digital camera, there really isn’t much of a need to go to a professional photographer to get that one shot, or maybe two, that you want to send out to let everybody know about the special moment. So take some shots, head over to TinyPrints, and order those invitations!

Let the world know you’re moving on here!

Swedish Fire Steel

Swedish Fire SteelHere’s a very practical gift idea. It’s a simple little key chain sized fire starter. When you slide the key looking thing against the little stick, sparks fly out at 3,000°C which is 5432°F. Yeah, that’s pretty hot.

The crazy little thing even works when it’s wet. I’m not sure anything will light when it’s when, but this thing will keep sparking. Get this for your closest friend who wants to go out and be like Bear Grylls!

Come on baby light my fire.

Tuttuki Bako Virtual Finger Game

Tuttuki Bako Virtual Finger GameHere’s a weird one for ya! This little box has different digital characters who live inside. You get to stick your gigantic (in proportion to them) finger in a hole on the side of the box and mess with the little creatures! Why not?

Being one of the weirdest things I’ve posted on this blog, I feel it appropriate to include a little video demonstration of said weirdness. Here’s a little clip of this Virtual Finger Game I found on YouTube.

The clip starts out with a tiny stick man being terrorized by the huge finger. Then at the push of a real button on the housing of the box, a menu appears. That menu, apparently, cycles through the characters with the touch of a digital button. The finger goes on to play with a blob and then an adorable panda who is clinging onto a tire swing. Just precious. Bonus: The song is mesmerizing.

Well, at least if they are cards that look this nice, then it would be fun. TinyPrints.com has all kinds of great baby announcements, and even plenty for twins, if you’re so lucky!

I caught a bit of that show Jon and Kate Plus 8 the other day. I can’t imagine having twinners and then being blessed with a six pack of children, all at once! Crazy stuff. So yeah, if you’re the lucky soon-to-be parent of twins, check out these announcements!
