Book: "Fifty Places to Hike Before You Die: Outdoor Experts Share the World's Greatest Destinations"
Did you know July 7th is officially "National Father-Daughter
Take a Walk Day" (in the US, at least)? Well, neither did I -
but now we both know it. So, if you are looking for a gift for
someone who likes to walk or hike (or maybe someone who needs
to think about a nice walk), this could be a great book to give as
This book describes details of fifty unique hikes - one hike per
chapter - from hikes all over the world. From Japan, to Italy,
to Rwanda, to Tibet. Your gift recipient may not get to hike
them all, but they will surely enjoy reading about these varied
trails and walking adventures. Even the workaholic, commuting
gift recipient can enjoy escaping into these chapters. And who
knows - this book may be enough to convince the recipient that it's time
for a break (and a long walk!)
"The descriptions are wonderful... Definitely a hiker's
If you think a razor for Father's Day is boring, think again! This
beautifully packaged gift set from Harry's includes a quality
handle, blades, shave gel and post-shave balm. If your Father's
Day gift recipient is a Harry's fan, they will love this gift set.
And if not, what a great way to introduce someone to the quality
shave from Harry's.
"Bought this as a gift for my Dad. He subscribed [to Harry's]
"I'd buy this gift set or a similar Harry's gift set again.
I thought the price was great for the amount and quality
of what was included."
It's the time of year for the NHL Stanley Cup Finals and if you are looking for a gift for a real
hockey fan, here is a great one. The gift is currently on sale on Amazon for $202.49 (was $299.99). This Stanley Computer
replica is 2 feet tall! And I love this - it comes with white gloves and an official NHL Table Cloth. (If you have
ever watched the cup being presented, the white gloves are just so important!).
According to the site, this cup is the only large scale Replica Stanley Cup Officially Licensed by the NHL. And it
does also come with a "Keeper of the Cup" certificate. And check out the customer photos on the site - they really
show the size of the cup (and are pretty hysterical as well).
"It has some good weight to it and is sturdy. Love the velvet bag, white gloves, and NHL tablecloth it comes with. Adds a nice touch."
Well, while we are talking about hockey, the NHL and the Stanley Cup Finals, how about a second
gift idea this week? Here is a second gift suggestion and one that is not quite as costly as the
NHL Stanley Cup Replica. We also found this Metallic Travel Tumbler - a great gift for the hockey fan?
in your life who also commutes. The tumblers really seem to look great. And don't worry
if the gift recipient is not a Blues or Bruins fan, because these are available with the name and logo
of any of the NHL teams. Pick the gift recipient's favorite team and have this gift ready in a
couple of days.
"I bought this for my dad for Christmas last year. He uses it everyday and loves it. Still has it and he even
fights with my mom about using it because he only wants to use this one. Great gift!"
One note: from the reviews, most owners seem to recommend NOT putting this in the dishwasher. That sounds like reasonable
advice to us.
Do you know that June 3rd (this year, in the U.S.) is "National Child's Day"? In honor, we pulled out two great
gift ideas for the child or children in your life. Is the child in your life a Pokemon fan? Then this gift idea
just might be perfect. This is a three-D night light in the shape of the main Pokemon character Pikachu,
with LED lights which can be set to one of seven colors, or
can be set to gradually change from one color to the next. Would be a great gift for a child's bedroom or play area.
"This was a perfect gift for my 6 year old daughter. Her Mario question mark black nightlight died, and now
into pokemon, so this little Pikachu was great as an Easter present. Puts out a good amount of light for the size,
and the touch sensor for color change is very sensitive so little fingers can switch the color easily.
Very pleased with the purchase."
Our second gift in honor of National Child's Day is a gift idea for the somewhat older child. This gift is
a great looking, 60 inch, air hockey table. This is a cool gift for a child (or adult) and fits great in a
basement or den or playroom. The air hockey table is described by reviewers as being sturdy, a very good size
and easy to put together. And almost everyone comments on how the adults love to play it as much as the children!
Now that's a gift idea that will make the entire family happy! :)
"This is a great table for the price..."
"Purchased this table for my grandchildren (ages 7 and 8) and it is perfect.
They really enjoy playing it. Gives them a break from those electronic devices. It is very sturdy
and even a good size for adults to play on"
"At this point, we have had this table for approximately 1 year ( was a Christmas gift for my kiddo).
It has been hours and hours of fun!! It was simple to put together and it's very solid!
We've played it so much and it still looks and operates like it's brand new. We really
couldn't be happier with it!"
Fun Word Art print in the shape of a basketball, featuring the words you specify. This is a great gift for the
basketball lover in your life. Give this gift of Word Art in the shape of a basketball and include words such as
the recipient's name, favorite team(s), school name, mascot, etc. This gift can be purchased framed or unframed,
and there are multiple
size options. If you need a great gift for a serious basketball fanatic, or an amateur basketball player, this
gift will be remembered.
"Absolutely fantastic! My 11 year old boy & all his friends love it!"
"OUTSTANDING!! This is that one SPECIAL Christmas gift that is a gift of time..."
In the U.S., May 1 is Law Day and
to celebrate we have a few new gift ideas for the lawyer, or aspiring lawyer or law student, in your life.
The first gift idea is A Lawyer's Prayer (written by Sir Thomas Moore) etched on an 8 inch by 10 inch red alder plaque. This is an excellent gift
idea for a recent law school graduate, or a lawyer opening or moving in to a new law office.
Text of A Lawyer's Prayer:
"Pray that, for the glory of God and in the pursuit of His justice, I may be trustworthy with confidences,
keen in study, accurate in analysis, correct in conclusion, able in argument, loyal to clients,
honest with all, courteous to adversaries, ever attentive to conscience.
Sit with me at my desk and listen with me to my clients' tales. Read with me in my library and
stand always beside me so that today I shall not, to win a point, lose my soul.
Pray that my family may find in me what yours found in you: friendship and courage,
cheerfulness and charity, diligence in duties, counsel in adversity, patience in pain;
their good servant, and God's first. Amen."
"The two young lawyers I gave this to REALLY like it. Will purchase for every new lawyer I know in the future."
"I am very pleased with this purchase! The wood is awesome and the quality is A-1! I would definitely recommend this product
for the lawyer in your life, you will not be disappointed."
In honor of Law Day we have a second
gift idea for the lawyer, or aspiring lawyer or law student, in your life.
This one is a quick read book, but one that has some very favorable reviews on Amazon. Written from
Satan's point-of-view, the book is tongue-in-cheek, but is intended to give very real advice to new lawyers
and law school students.
"The book is a quick read. I finished after two brief train rides to work. There is definitely some truth and good pointers to takeaway, but there are also some laughing moments."
This retro-style mechanical keyboard will bring back memories for anyone who remembers typing on a true
typewriter back in the day, or who remembers the mechnical keyboard feel of the TRS-80 or
Commodore 64 or the original IBM Personal Computer. Includes USB connection which allows this keyboard
to work with just about any modern desktop or laptop computer. Styled to look like a true typewriter, the keys
are rounded and concave, to give that true feeling of a typewriter. Made by Azio, this "is a mechanical keyboard
inspired by vintage typewriters that combines retro aesthetics with contemporary state-of-the-art functionalities."
