cool-tech-gadgets-technology-giftsI just stumbled upon Urban Outfitter’s newest games and gadgets and had a minor heart attack. There are so many cool and cute things! I want all the gadgets!

Five you say? Yes! I like to start new projects every week. Crazy little me. If you are interested in all my side shenanigans here’s a run down of my other crazy stuff:

Gifts For Your Flexible Yoga Friend

Whether you are looking to buy a gift for someone who does yoga everyday, multiple times a day, and doesn’t care about materialistic things; or for someone who tends to go to yoga class right before their shopping sprees – you can’t go wrong with a yoga mat. It doesn’t matter what brand of yoga mat you own, if you use it everyday you will need to replace it eventually. Daily use wears the little grooves designed to stick to your feet, making the surface slippery when you sweat. So take a look at these beautiful yoga mats I found at Urban Outfitters and other colorful stores and see if any of them catch your eye.

Gifts For The Gardening Enthusiast

PKS Castor Trowel

Handmade in Austria by PKS, this copper and beechwood trowel has a wide, shallow scoop, making it a practical, all-around tool for weeding, planting, and transplanting. Copper improves soil and plant health by increasing water retention and deterring slugs and snails. Compared to iron and steel, naturally rust-proof copper also reduces friction with the soil, making the curved blade slice into soil with a smooth, controlled action. Each trowel arrives in a custom, gift-ready box packed with natural aspen shavings.

Nontron Utility Knife

Famed for knife-making since the 1400’s, the village of Nontron is home to France’s oldest continuously-operating cutlery forge. Six artisans hand-craft Nontron’s one-of-a-kind knives using a 40-step process, carving handles from local, aged boxwood and burning traditional markings. Blades are forged from 440 stainless steel for excellent edge retention. This high-carbon material reaches Rockwell 58 hardness, making each knife an everlasting gift or practical heirloom.

PKS Nunki Weeder

This copper and beechwood weeder features a sharp, curved blade to loosen weeds and roots.

Shiitake Mushroom Log

Grow your own crops of delicious, edible mushrooms with this innovative, giftable log. Each hand-cut hardwood log is inoculated with spores that will sprout organic shiitake mushrooms—a fast-growing, flavorful variety that’s perfect for first-time growers. Start the growing process by soaking the log in water, and you’ll be able to grow multiple crops for up to 3 years.

Fern Terrarium Kit

Easily grow a garden under glass with this giftable kit, each terrain-exclusive set stocked with everything needed to cultivate a lush terrarium filled with ferns and moss.

Hanging Tillandsia Grow Kit

Ilse Jacobsen Laced Rain Boot

Designed in Denmark and hand-crafted from sustainable, single-estate rubber, these lace-up boots from Ilse Jacobsen can withstand even the rainiest of days. Adjustable laces, a cozy lining, and cheerful colors make these boots a welcome wardrobe addition when the weather is gloomy.

Myrtle Topiary

Elegantly shaped, this myrtle topiary adds a splash of vivid green to interior spaces. Each one is cultivated for up to two years to develop a full, polished form before it arrives at your home in a weathered clay pot.


Longboards: Colorful Fun Rides

Riviera Longboards Beta Fish 38” Complete Longboard

The Beta Fish 38″ longboard from Riviera Longboards is the little brother of the Sea Snake. This board has all the same qualities as the elder, but boasts a shorter wheel base and length to give it a “whippy” ride and a bit more agility when you’re busting flat-ground tricks. You’ll find more comfort on this board while free-riding and sliding at slower speeds than its older sibling.
