Each person connects their lamp to WiFi, and when one person touches their lamp, the other person’s lamp will light up. A little way to say, “I’m thinking of you.”

Long Distance Coffee Mugs

If you and your best friend don’t live near to one another, one of the things you miss most are those intimate talks over your morning coffees. Each personalized mug features the states you both live in, and the cities are marked with a heart. Dotted lines and a heart connect the two maps.

Wine Pearls

Sometimes the clock strikes wine o’clock, and you realize you haven’t chilled that Pinot Grigio. Instead of drinking it warm like a savage or dropping ice cubes in it like an amateur, you can use these wine pearls to chill your drink.

The pearls are made of stainless steel and come in a set of four. The pearls can be used to chill any drink you don’t want to dilute with ice cubes. 

Automatic Handbag Illuminator

There are some female problems men know nothing of. Rooting around in your handbag looking for something is one. That’s why you can never find anything in there, things you need or things you should throw away which is why the inside of a woman’s handbag is filled with yucky stuff like mints that have come out of the wrapper and are now covered in lint. Erg! This is a personal bugaboo of mine. And I know I’m not alone. That’s why this is such a great gift.
