  • Bacon of the Month Club


    Oh, my friends. Is there a more hedonistic gift than the gift of bacon? That is, the monthly gift of bacon? Delivered to your door by women in Playboy bunny costumes! OK that last bit isn’t true, but that would be just about the only thing that could make this better.

  • Safari Chef Portable Grill


    The Safari Chef is my new favorite camping gizmo. It’s a lightweight stove, grill, non-stick griddle, wok, and boiling pan in one. Everything stacks up nice and neat, and zips into a small carrying bag. My sister in law gave us one for Christmas, and now a few of our friends have bought their own after using ours. For portability and versatility, I prefer it to our two-burner Coleman stove. Not built for backpacking, but great for everything else.

  • Travel Scrabble


    We went camping recently, and friends brought along this handy travel-Scrabble game, so we could play by the campfire. The tiles snap into their racks, and the ridges on the board are deeper, so you can even play while you’re in transit. Plus, it’s itty bitty, so you can slip it right into your backpack and still have room for the Scrabble Dictionary. Nerd.

  • Vocal Smoke Alarm


    This smoke alarm lets you record a message in your own voice, using your kids’ names. You can call to them, or provide instructions in your own voice. When the detector senses smoke, it sounds an alarm, plays your message loudly, and switches on a bright light. Extra-annoying when you burn the toast, but a potential life-saver when it wakes your deepest sleeper in a fire.
