    Peek Mobile Email Device, Handheld Mobile Email DeviceThe Un-Gizmo. Peek was born when wireless industry entrepreneur Amol Sarva’s pregnant wife, Ursula, wanted an easy way to keep up with email during her long walks, but didn’t want all the bells and whistles of a smartphone.

Sleek and stylish, the Peek is elegantly designed to do just one thing and do it very well: send and receive personal messages. Fun way for everyone to stay connected! ($59.95) Learn more about the Peek handheld mobile email device here.

It’s like a secure one-way mailbox (think color printer/fax hybrid), where your offline friend or relative can get inbound emails, photos, and PDFs without ever setting up an Internet connection. No spam, no junk mail, and no ads. (The emails don’t have all that techno stuff at the top either, they’ll just look like full-color letters to the recipient.)

    Coolibar, UV Sunwear, Zinc Oxide Swimwear, SPF ClothingBe Sun Smart.

(Prices vary) Buy Coolibar's UV Sunwear here.

    d ID - Personal Identification Gear To Wear Road ID, ID Bracelet, ID TagIdentification To Go. Sometimes outdoor enthusiasts do meet with misadventures.

His spaulted bowls are named for the natural veining, or spaulting, that occurs when wood begins to decompose. Each bowl is a one-of-a-kind creation, and we love that the wood is either found or donated. Spencer never cuts down trees, although if you have a beloved tree that has fallen, he can make it into a bowl for you. A unique and inspired gift for someone special on your list. ($26.00-$285.00) Buy Spencer Peterman's hand carved wooden bowls here.
