Some years ago a friend sent me a 'tart warmer'' for Christmas. Tarts in this context are like mini candles, but they don't have candle wicks. They are not meant to be burned directly, but warmed by another heating element, like a tea light or light bulb. And boy, does a tart warmer emit fragrance! Candle burning doesn't compare!

Just what you need... a sarcastic clock. Well, it's here and you can leave it to Suck UK to bring it to you.
Here's one difference between dog and cat lovers. Cat lovers love cats; dog lovers love specific breeds of dogs. Generalization? Well, that's what calendar publishers are telling us, because they print far more breed specific calendars about dogs than cats. I sent my dog Coca out digging for the doggone delightful ones and he came back with some - very proud of himself.
Some of us are very sentimental about our wall calendars and end up keeping them for years. Perhaps that's why we spend a bit of time searching for a special one that "clicks." Whether you are buying a calendar for yourself or someone else (hint: great Christmas gift), I've hand-picked 10 that express the various ways some may like to start the next decade.
Goodies and gadgets for the later-aged this Christmas... We have twelve, one for each day of Christmas and you can take your pick of your favorite 8 for Hanukkah gifts. You'll have to judge which are the best for your boomer and senior relatives; we don't all age gracefully.
It's the Holidays, 2010. We're stretching it to buy gifts for only the most special in our lives, and the gifts will be more personal, more meaningful, than years past, because we are stretching and our giftees know that. This year I found a range of new design gifts for those special people - the fun, the funky, the fanciful, and the functional. You'll find something for your special ones, without busting your budget.
Just think of how many iPads would have been sold by now if Apple had come out with something like the Grip and the A-Fold itself. Fortunately for iPad owners and for remaining sales of the iPad, some members of the design community are making the iPad more user-friendly: the Grip, which makes the iPad comfortably portable, and now the A-FOLD, a solid, multi-angled stand for the iPad.
