  • Asian Serving Tray

    Asian-serving-tray

    You don’t have breakfast in bed enough. Sunday mornings should be all about pajamas, The New York Times, and buttery toast. Maybe the problem is that you don’t have a dreamy breakfast tray. This one is made of solid wood and has hand-carved legs. Live the dream.

  • Limited Edition Anakin Skywalker Lightsaber

    Limited-edition-anakin-skywalker-lightsaber

    I can almost hear you pushing your heavy-framed glasses up for a better look. Behold, my geeky brethren, the Limited Edition Anakin Skywalker Lightsaber. It’s an official reproduction from Episode III; the accent pieces are plated with 18K gold. Comes with a numbered metal plaque and certificate of authenticity. (Your breath is totally fogging the screen.) Oh yeah, it also comes with a display case. No Lightsaber collection is complete without it.

  • Journal Memory Boxes

    Journal-memory-boxes

    BY REQUEST This acid-free, 100 percent cotton journal features a suede-lined compartment where you can store mementos. The box closes with a magnetic clap, so your treasures will stay put. You could use it as a baby book, storing a locket of hair, baby booties, and a snip of blankie fabric. Or use it as a travel journal and secret away bits of stone from the piazza, a wine label, and a stalk of lavender from the guest-cottage garden.

  • Shure E3c Sound Isolating Earphones

    Shure-e3c-sound-isolating-earphones

    Yes, all of us know that iPod headphones are crappy. Several of my friends have solved the problem by buying a pair of these babies, and now all of them are evangelists. One of them read that, when you’re wearing them, you feel as though the music would come out of your mouth if you opened it. Couldn’t have said it better myself.

  • Pom Ring

    Pom-ring

    I want to go out dancing with one of these on each hand and two for my big toes. This giant pom-pom ring by Pimienta Negra is wildly shakable. The site compares it to a sea anemone, but it looks like a big football mum or dahlia to me. The elastic beaded band lets you wear it on any finger or toe.

  • Girl Scout Cookies

    Girl-scout-cookies

    When I moved to a big city, it never occurred to me that I’d be sacrificing my Girl Scout cookies. The wee green ones don’t come to my door or stake out the grocery stores I frequent. My cupboards are cookie-free, and I’m starting to have withdrawal symptoms. The Girl Scouts don’t sell cookies online, but I did find a site where you can download a mail-order form and have Lemon Cremes delivered direct to your door. You have until the end of April to stuff your freezer with Peanut Butter Patties and Caramel deLites before the cookies disappear for another year. Stock up.

  • Retro Bullet Planter

    Retro-bullet-planter

    For years I’ve been covetous of my friend’s 1950s bullet planter, and now I can have a shiny new one all for myself. It’s made of fiberglass and steel, and it beats the heck out of terra cotta. I like it in white with a tall succulent or unusual tropical flowers. Scoot one into that weird bare corner in your apartment, and make yourself a martini.

  • Vacu Vin

    Vacu-vin

    Vacu Vin is a set of rubber stoppers and a mini pump that seals an open bottle of wine and then lets you pump most of the air out. We use ours constantly. Just pop the bottle in your fridge, and it’ll keep for three or four days. Perfect for those who like to have a glass of wine with dinner, but hate to waste a whole bottle. The only drawback is that it elimiates your excuse for drinking the entire bottle.

  • Polaroid Photo Guest Book

    Polaroid-photo-guest-book

    We did a polaroid guestbook for our wedding, and it was so much fun looking through wedding photos before we’d even left on our honeymoon. I wish we’d had something even half as snazzy as this built-for-polaroid guest book. It comes in many colors, and you can have your name, or the date printed on a nameplate that you can affix to the front. Thanks again, Heather!
