6 Practical Gifts that Take it Up a Notch

Sofa Stud

Do you and your guests enjoy drinking a can of soda or coffee when they’re sitting on the couch but struggle with where to place their drink?  Not everyone can reach the end table or coffee table.  This is where the Sofa Stud comes in handy. A simple plastic cup holder that fits between the couch cushions and balances the soda can or coffee cup.


When it comes to the adventure lover, a headlamp is the way to go. Whether you are out hunting, fishing, or working on a project in the garage the Fenix HM65R is the right way to light up the job. This new Fenix headlamp is constructed from ultra-lightweight magnesium material. With two Cree LED’s, the HM65R can reach 1400 Lumens by activating its dual spotlight and floodlight mode. You can power this headlamp with a single 18650 battery or with two CR123A batteries.

Tool set

Don’t let your family member get stuck with the wrong tool again. Give a gift that will give back all year round with a toolkit that is guaranteed to have every piece they will need to tackle every job. With 58 interchangeable bits, they’ll be able to fix nearly every screw type and open any device. The OWC Advanced Toolkit is perfect to repair, maintain, and upgrade computers, devices, game consoles, stereo equipment plus any other electronics and gadgets. The perfect gift for the DIY techie.

Smart Wallet

If you need a gift for the business traveler, then the Parliament Wallet might be just perfect. This is a premium leather smart wallet from Ekster that has a small profile and gives you quick card access. The built-in aluminum cardholder fans out your cards at the click of a button and protects them against skimming. Add a tracker card to make it unlosable when your traveler is out and about on business or family vacation.

String Sling

Got a guitar player on your list? Then how about The String Sling? This guitar strap is the perfect strap for music gigs in the living room but also protects your guitar strings from oxidation, greasy hands and environmental wear. It uses a microfiber cloth, which can also be used to wipe down and dust your guitar, and leaves no residue or fuzz behind. The String Sling also features a custom compartment to hold your capo, whether The String Sling is in strap or protection mode and the hidden pick pouch can hold all of your picks without the need to dig around.
