  • Water Pik Aquafall Shower Head


    The best shower possible after a long day of yard work. Easy to install, and surprisingly attractive. It’s the perfect gift, except for the part where you have to picture your dad having a “soft and drenching warm rain experience.” That’s kind of disquieting.

  • Love Nuts


    Love Nuts aren’t nearly so risqu’e as they sound, though they do come in a close second to sex.

    The lightly caramelized nuts are covered in silky milk chocolate, and then dusted with dark cocoa. They’re crunchy, creamy, a tiny bit salty, and more effective than Prozac. If have a touch of PMS, an irritable boss, or a tantrum-prone kid, these babies will pull you back from the edge.

    I like the cashews, but you can also get them in almond, hazelnut, pecan, and macadamia. At only ten bucks a bag, they make excellent, unique host gifts.

  • Space Pen


    Designed in 1965 for NASA, the space pen will “write upside down, under water, over grease, in freezing cold, boiling heat, and in outer space.” Of course, the Russians just gave their astronauts pencils. But a No. 2 won’t wow the crowd at a cocktail party, friends.

  • Candela


    I know you’ve seen these babies everywhere, but a friend of mine mentioned that they’re terrific for homes with kiddos. All the romance of candlelight, none of the open flame. Good point. They turn on when you lift them from the charging base, and last for about for five hours. They also turn on instantly during a power failure.

    If you prefer the look of votives, they make those too.

  • Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair


    by Pablo Neruda An excerpt from one of my favorite poems, “Tonight I Can Write” “I no longer love her, that’s certain, but how I loved her.
    My voice tried to find the wind to touch her hearing. Another’s. She will be another’s. As she was before my kisses.
    Her voice, her bright body. Her infinite eyes. I no longer love her, that’s certain, but maybe I love her.
    Love is so short, forgetting is so long.”
