Titanium Spork

Titanium SporkI got this (along with a couple other things) for my Father at Christmas. He is quite the spork enthusiast, and really, it doesn’t get any better than a titanium spork. He loved it. I’m not sure if he still uses it, as that was well over a year ago now, but I tell you what, I’m sure it’s still in pristine condition!

Now, why a titanium spork you ask? I say why not! Most sporks are wonderfully convenient, but terribly flimsy. And most often, they still have little plastic seams left on the edges to cut your lip, ouch! This titanium spork is smoothly crafted into a perfectly gentle, but sturdy, large sized spork. Really, the thing is big, see that image there? It’s even bigger in real life! It measures 6 1/4 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide. Go measure one of your spoons, probably nowhere near that size.

One last thought about a spork, that I took from my Father: Why not call it a foon?

Princess Leia Poster

Princess Leia PosterThe classic Princess Leia poster. For all Star Wars fans, and anybody who appreciates good old beauty…circa 1970’s George Lucas future style…or something.

You really can’t go wrong getting this poster for any guy who is into Star Wars, or movies, or just plain old interested in attractive women! Carrie Fisher was at her best as Princess Leia, and there really isn’t a whole lot more to say about it. If you don’t know who Princess Leia is, I’m sorry, you’ve obviously been in seclusion for a few decades. Welcome to the world, go watch Star Wars.

The poster measures 36″ x 24″ and will put a smile on the face of a cubicle slave every day. I categorized this as “Tech Stuff” because any techie will appreciate Leia watching him do his thing.

Put Leia on some lucky guy’s wall here.

The Big Lebowski – 10th Anniversary Limited Edition

The Big Lebowski - 10th Anniversary Limited EditionIf you haven’t seen The Big Lebowski (and don’t mind moderate to heavy levels of crudeness), you should do yourself a favor and pick this up. This is such a fine movie, well written and acted out perfectly.

I’ve checked this out a bit, and it appears as though the “Limited Edition” part of this doesn’t so much have anything to do with the content, but more with the packaging, which I think is brilliant. Word is there are a few interviews with the cast, but nothing too special. All that’s okay though, if you’re like me and have been telling yourself that you need to own this movie, now is the time. And of course, if you already own it, buy this version for a friend and leave the mark of The Dude on their shelf for all to see!

Supersize Earbud Speakers

Supersize Earbud SpeakersGive somebody a gift that looks like you stole from a giant! These gigantic ipod-style earbud speakers are claimed to be 500 times the size of the headphones that come with ipods. 500 times!

The speakers connect to the non-giant’s computer via USB cable and have their own built-in amplifier. There’s no fancy stand or anything, but they will lay there on a desk looking great. Sure to start up a conversation anytime somebody glances at them for the first time.

So if you know a mac lover who would love to have their earbuds in all day, but can’t due to work regulations, get them the oversized earbuds so they can get their fix.

This Underwater Light Show is built to float on the water, and also comes with a weight to attach to the thing so it sinks to the bottom of the tub. It has numerous settings on how to display the colors, whether it be a fast change, a slow change, or just having it on one solid color the whole time.

You don’t even have to have a hot tub to enjoy this, it can light up a bathtub just as well! So this can be a gift idea for anybody who has any type of tub that could use a little lighting up, sweet!

Flexible Shaft Ratcheting Screwdriver

Flexible Shaft Ratcheting ScrewdriverI can’t count how many times this tool would have come in handy in the past. This is a great gift idea for just about anybody. It’s so annoying to find a screw that needs loosened or tightened but you just can’t quite fit a screwdriver in that spot.

This will let you get to tight spots and still get that screw tightened or undone. It has a magnetic hex tip so it will hold all the many bits it comes with. Here are those as well as the specs and warranty:

  • Has a standard 1/4” (6.35mm) magnetized hex opening to hold all standard driver bits
  • Comes with 15 bits (5 Phillips, 3 slotted, 3 Torx, 3 Hex)
  • Comes with 5 driver sockets (5/32″, 3/16″, 1/4″, 9/32″, 5/16″)
  • Dimensions: 12.75″ length (32.4 cm)
  • One year manufacturer warranty

Good stuff all in one tool, nice.

Flying Animals

Flying AnimalsWhat every office space needs is a slew of flying pigs. Maybe a monkey or two soaring through the air. And why not top it all off with a chicken to boot?

Now that dream of flying pigs is a reality! This trio of flying animals will not only fly into a desk 6 cubicles away, but make plenty of noise on the trip. As the image so colorfully displays, each animal makes a different sound of glee whilst soaring through the air.

The way it works is simple. The arms (or chicken’s neck) have elastic bands in them and a little place to put your fingers as anchors. Pull the animal back and let her rip!

Oh, and I suppose kids would love these airborne animals as well…not just bored office workers!
