Aagaard Men’s Jewelry

Aagaard for Men is a classical line featuring bracelets and necklaces… with an edge.  The secret is powerful surfaces with a unique look.  Matted metals, polished pendants, daring combinations in ceramic, steel and carbon fiber – all in masculine browns, blacks, copper and blues. This look blends elegance and sophistication with playfulness and thoughtfulness… in other words the perfect gift for the perfect guy!



“CooCoo Nutz” Drink Holder

These fun bicycle handlebar mount drink holders have tiki-type faces hand-carved and painted on actual coconut shells. That is why, even though only three types of “faces” are offered (a purple nosed frowny face, a yellow-nosed smile and a green-nosed, grimace,) every CooCoo Nutz is unique! They make a lighthearted and welcome gift for a Dad or an Uncle. A much more merry a gift to give than a tie. Or a razor. Or socks…

It is perfect to help a student concentrate in class or keeps your hands busy while you are traveling on a plane. This product is made in the USA by exceptional people with special needs. Putty colors vary from color changing with the heat of your hands to magnetic to glow in the dark or simply awesome colors!




The Dipr


The dipr is a spoon that holds your sandwich cookie while you dip it in milk or other liquid. The dipr cradles the cookie by the cream and prevents the cookie from crumbling when dunked. Best of all, you can eat right off of the dipr so no more sticky fingers! Join the dunking revolution!

The Miniature Book of Miniature Golf

This is a complete miniature golf course in a book, complete with golf balls and a tiny putter.  Just drop the ball through the hole in the cover, open the page, and you are at the tee for the first hole.  Play it through, and it drops to the second hole – all the way through 18 holes!  This is a great gift for golfers, or anyone who needs a quick break at their desk.
