We know a few women who saw the Sex and the City movie more than once, just so they could get another look at all the fabulous shoes, clothes, and handbags (the 3 stars of the movie). Now that the movie is out on DVD, they can watch it as often as they want - and press the pause button whenever they need to get a better look at an outfit. The DVD features... more

Instead of tossing your guests a 6-pack of Budweiser, why not serve them a decent pilsner in a proper glass? Designed for beer aficionados, Mikasa's "Brewmaster's Collection" consists of 4 different 4-piece sets: Wheat glasses, pilsner glasses, varietal glasses, and a flight set (6-ounce glasses), shown here with the accompanying dark wood caddy. All glasses are dishwasher-safe and make great wedding/housewarming/holiday gifts. Especially if you wrap them up with some good beer.
When we heard about the 5 year diary, we had to order several copies to give as gifts. The diary is a clothbound, hardcover book that lets you keep track of your life with just a few lines every day for 5 years. Each page of the diary is devoted to one day of the year and subdivided into 5 sections (one for each of 5 years). So as you're writing what happened on... more

You'd think, after browsing through the September issue of Lucky magazine, that a good fall tote bag costs at least several hundred dollars. Nonsense. You can get this patent "Palazzo" tote bag from Crate and Barrel for $24.95.

So you can... more
"Real men wear goatees," say the people behind the GoateeSaver, a new shaving device that helps men with daily grooming. The GoateeSaver is not a razor. It is a plastic mouthpiece. You bite down on the orange tabs in the back, adjust the mouthpiece so that it covers all the facial hair you want to keep, and then just shave around it. It sounds like a fast and easy way to get a perfectly... more
How cool - or hot - is this LED shower light? It's an attachment for your shower head. When you turn the water on, the light shines blue. Once the water gets up to 89 degrees, the light turns red. All you need now is a disco ball. Anyway, the light doesn't require any special tools to install, fits a standard shower pipe, and might just make you want to take showers in... more
The last time we tried to serve fresh pineapple, it was a total disaster. (We tried to "shave" off the outside of the pineapple using an electric carving knife. Then we couldn't hold on to the slippery beast long enough to cut it up into pieces. Did you know that pineapples bounce?) If only we had known about these pineapple slicers. Think of them as corkscrews that both core and slice pineapples into pretty... more

It's essentially a bracelet with an adjustable strap and a large magnetic tray that keeps hardware, tools, or other metal objects in one place, at the ready, out of your mouth. Use it while sewing, working on cars or bikes, hanging pictures, or doing any other project that... more
Welcome to the latest episode of New Adventures in Men's Underwear. In case you haven't been paying attention, women's underwear has kinda peaked with thongs and push-up bras; there isn't much left to do that hasn't already been done. Men's underwear, however, is a different story. For years it was all about white briefs and boxers. Then came solid colors! stripes! boxer briefs! Now it's all about graphics. On the outside you may be Regular... more
Did you know there's a cupcake craze sweeping the nation? Cupcake bakeries are opening right and left, cupcake cookbooks continue to roll off the presses, and for the gluttons among us, Wilton makes a giant cupcake cake pan. It's actually a 2-part pan; you cook the base and the top separately, and assemble them before you frost. The base side of the pan has ridges around the edge for an authentic cupcake shape,... more

Apparently you are supposed to let your wine breathe before you start drinking it. Ideally with a decanter. But that takes way too long. Enter the Vinturi wine aerator. As you pour wine through it, the right amount of air gets drawn in, aerating your wine almost immediately for a better bouquet, enhanced flavors, and a smoother finish. It might not make much difference with a bottle of Two Buck Chuck, but for impatient... more
