2. Brain Specimen CoastersTo celebrate the power of our headiest of organs, we bring you these awesome Brain Specimen Coasters. Each set of Brain Specimen Coasters comes with ten glass coasters. Each coaster has four rubber feet (to further protect the surfaces the coasters are protecting in the first place) and a slice of brain printed on it. If you stack your Brain Specimen Coasters in the proper order (which is easy to do, since the coasters are labeled) and look from the proper angle, you’ll see a full brain.

6. Cuisinart Combo Steam & Convection OvenAs a lifelong cook, there are many things I find fascinating in the kitchen. Particularly when things turn out just as they should, be it moist and juicy split spice rubbed turkey breast or, crispy-edged chocolate chip cookies. The Steam Oven is truly a unique oven that incorporates all the functions of a professional steam oven in a countertop footprint. It’s a countertop convection oven with full steaming capability. Steam heat cuts cooking time up to 40%! Choose from 9 single and combination functions. Steam or poach any type of vegetable, fish, poultry or rice… or use steam in combination with both Broil or Bake functions to create roasts that are beautifully browned on the outside, yet moist and juicy on the inside. Special settings allow you to proof breads, rolls – even homemade pretzels and donuts. Bake them faster, with bakery-quality results. Combo Steam + Convection Oven $325

7. Dell Inspiron 11 3000: This versatile gem would be the perfect gift for mom. Compared to the Microsoft Surface Pro 4, which acts as more of a full-powered laptop with detachable keyboard, the Dell is compact and would work well as a gift. The 6th Gen Intel Core, Intel’s best processor ever, sets a new standard of computing with better performance, graphics and battery life than any previous processor.Up to 11 hours of battery life lets you go longer between charges so you can spend more time away from the outlet doing what matters most.It also has touch screen. Use it in tablet, tent or laptop mode.  The 11.6″ edge-to-edge touch screen features HD display so you can scan social media or stream your favourite TV show$479.99

8. Mighty Magnets: Unbelievably strong and yet so tiny – our Mighty Magnets will make you believe great things really do come in small packages. Use them to post a message, memo, card, menu, photo or list to any steel surface. Package of 12 3/16″ cubes or package of 16 1/4″ diam. dots. Strong enough to hold thicker items, such as brochures or small booklets. $19.94 

9. React Faucet: Pasadena Single-Handle High-Arc Pull-Down Sprayer Kitchen Faucet in Stainless Steel with React Technology. Essentials earn their place in our kitchens. It seems fitting that this is called the Pasadena. I once interviewed Julia Child, who was a Pasadena native, about how we could tell the difference between an item that was a “kitchen gimmick” and one that would be destined to become an “essential” in the kitchen. I asked her about the food processor at that time. Julia Child was a supporter of the new things, ideas and technology if they were better and useful and she told me as much. “They earn their place in our kitchens.”  The Pasadena Pull-down kitchen faucet with React sensor technology is the new way to operate your kitchen faucet. React follows your commands with the wave of a hand, offering a new level of simplicity and convenience in your kitchen. The Pfister Pasadena with React puts you in charge. Speed through food prep, dishwashing and clean-up. Reliable touch-free operation keeps the spread of germs in check and puts an end to fingerprints and water spots. This technology could quickly become essential in my world. My fantasy is that I come down into my kitchen on Christmas morning, and like those luxury car commercials, the React faucet is installed and gleaming in my kitchen with a Big Red Bow on it. $299.00 

10. Blue Storm Trooper Bow Tie: Many of the most Fascinating men I know have traits in common. Among them, they have confidence and their own sense of style. Also most of them wear Bow-ties. We LOVE the collection just launched by Cufflinks.com for boy and Big Boys. Featuring   Officially licensed by Star Wars, DC Comics and Ox and Bull, these are hands down the cutest accessory you can add to your dapper little guy. We especially love the blue storm trooper bow tie and the grey Yoda bow tie. Each $25.00
