I love these super cute crocheted eggs. You get two plain eggs, two happy eggs and two eggs with removable birdies. The eggs come in a real egg crate. $50.00 at anapaulaoli
I am not one to overly pamper my pooch(es) but this Shimmering Mist looks fun. It was $17 but is now on sale for $10.99 at Happy Tails Spa. Just enter the code SHIMMERY at checkout.
I think these Jet Set Journals and Area Code Notes would be a charming gift for a guy on the go. Maybe he’s off to school far away and you want to remind him of home. Maybe he’s on tour with the band and never remembers your area code. Or maybe you’re moving but you want him to have good memories of the city you shared. I am pretty sure this journal would give anyone good memories. You choose the city and area code and hopefully, the memories come for free. $8.50 from Jet Set Paper on etsy.
Perfect for the photographer who likes to keep rotating his display or the dad who can’t have enough pictures of his kids (or dog), this photo rope is easy to hang, easy to change out and easy to add to.

I wish I had this as a kid! This Disgusting Science Kit teaches kids through gross, kid-friendly experiments like making your own fake blood or creating fuzzy (yet, safe!) mold or stinky intestine model (ha ha). Perfect for that little scientist who gets a kick out saying, "Hey, what's grosser than gross?" $18.99 at Cool Stuff Express
This corrugated cardboard box creates a perfectly sheltered area for your cat to relax in. The fleece lined hammock is removable and holds up to a 20lb cat, while the top of the box can hold up to 80lbs. $34.95 at CatAbove.com
I’m not saying that I would be seen with a guy wearing this Six Million Dollar Man jacket, I’m just saying, from that the moment I saw it I could name three guys who would like it. Then I showed it to a friend and she knew three guys who would like it…get the picture? It’s on sale for $29.98 right now at Wireless.
Being a huge Pez collecter in my younger years (by younger years, I mean last week), this automatically stood out for me. Pez now makes a large 9 inch dispenser that dispenses dog treats. I can't speak for the nutritional value of the treats, but how neat!!! $20.00 at PezCollecters.com
This little octopus soap would make a great addition in your guest bathroom. How fun it would be to use it - although I'd hate to watch him melt and disappear. Smells like Nag Champa and it's vegan which I think is pretty cool $3.75 at Twin Dream Creations
I'm so happy I stumbled upon this photographer's site. She features awesome photo prints of animals (mostly from a private California zoo) that are so expressive! $25 at Sharon Montrose
I would love to see a cat wrestle with this crocodile! With many different scratching surfaces, and an area to snooze on, I'm a little jealous that they don't make them for adults.$25.00 at AllPetFurniture.com
Oh it’s been hot out here in L.A. for the past few days. Super hot in the valley, where, for some strange reason, many apartments don’t have central air. But that’s ok, we have fans and lots of ‘em. I am thinking about adding this airplane usb fan to the collection for my husband. It’s tiny and cute, so I don’t know what kind of breeze it will actually generate but did I mention it’s cute? Besides, when it’s 104°, every little bit helps. $17.95 at Catching Fireflies.
This two-faced mug is fabulous - on on side it looks like a regular ole mug, and on the other it's a fancy schmancy teacup. A fun way to brighten your morning just by spinning your mug around. Available in lime, orange and cream colors. On sale for $11.25 at Design My World
How fun is this shark t-shirt? I bought one for myself over the weekend and it'll be the perfect tee to scare folks while at the beach and humming the theme song to Jaws. Okay, I'm a little weird, but I think this t-shirt is great! Sizing is Junior's fit. $24.50 at Delias
Do you ever give a guy flowers? Does he then act all weird and say he’s got no place to put them and that you should just keep them for yourself? This Pop Top vase solves part of that problem. Funny and not girly, he could display a few manly stems without shame. If you could convince him that flowers can be manly too…I’m still working on that part. $7.95 at Papersource.
I think I was reading the web comic Savage Chickens when I came across these Sir Critter tee-shirts, which seems kind of fitting, I guess. I am partial to Sir Rabbit, but if he’s got a favorite mammal, cephalopod, insect or…paramecium…take a look around, they have quite a menagerie available. Starting at $15.99 at Sir Critter.
This is the perfect bag for grocery shopping. Don't you think? You'll never feel alone with your personable little veggie friends! $6.50 at The Utilitarian Franchise
Does your dog gulp down it's food the second that you fill up the bowl? The molded protrusions in this bowl keep your dog from scarfing down it's food, and can help with health issues caused by eating too quickly. $28.90 at SitStay.com
OK, now this is not your average gift. This is most definitely a splurge but it's a splurge of the highest order because it's a foldable, packable, storable, twenty-four pound kayak. How cool would this be for the city dweller who doesn't have a garage? Or the guy with a small car but big plans? It's expensive but not for a boat, and imagine the priceless look when he figures out what it is. $1,017 at Folbot.
To celebrate Saturday night's premiere of HBO's Grey Gardens, why not don a Little Edie mask?
Just imagine a viewing party at your house and all your friends wearing them! A house full of Edies! And, I think the world could always use more Edies, don't you?
$18 from the Bruce Lennon Art Gallery.
I can only imagine a soiree at Grey Gardens with the Edies and all their animal friends. Upon arrival, guests would have name tags waiting for them as a way of introduction to the others gathered.
$3.75 for a set of three featuring Mr. Raccoon, Mr. Fox and Mr. Beaver from Three Dog Party.
Ah, bring back memories of the mixed tape with these magnets. They look so old school and they even have a spot for you to write the name of your mixed tape. $8 at Vortex Trading Company
