This week's Grommets are innovative, creative and whimsical. From lightweight luggage to artistic night lights to animated hoodies, we've got some goodies up our sleeve (ha!) this week.
Hideo Design A great bag can mean the difference between a relaxing trip and one spent dragging a too-heavy suitcase, painfully navigating the narrow aisle of an airplane, and straining to lift your suitcase into the overhead compartment. If you’re ready to ditch your rigid, heavy suitcase for sleek, lightweight carry on luggage, we’ve found the perfect upgrade. (Starting at $79) Buy Hideo Design luggage here.
Nelley Kelley Night Lights Artist Ellen McHale has elevated the lowly night light to pure art form with her handcrafted glass tile fixtures. Her Nelley Kelley unique night lights are great for the bathroom, bedroom, living room, hallway – anywhere you need a little extra light. But you won’t want to put them away once the sun comes up. They’re works of art, meant to be treasured all day, not just at night.($45) Buy your Nelley Kelley Night Lights here.
Mouth Man - Animated Hoodies Here’s a Grommet you can really sink your teeth into. Mouth Man hoodies reveal animal faces when kids (and grownups) strike just the right pose. The knw skeleton design is perfect for a pre-Halloween costume! (Starting at $24.95) Buy Mouth Man animated hoodies here.
Rebound Driveway Marker The inventor of the Rebound marker is Arra David (on the left with CEO Mike Collins), a mechanical engineer who designs high-end gift products for a living. Arra was inspired by the poles that line a slalom ski run, and he used that inspiration to solve two problems with traditional driveway markers: They’re hard to install on frozen ground and they break all the time. Arra’s driveway markers keep snowplows and wayward drivers on the straight and narrow — and they’ll last a lot longer than one season.(Starting at $24.95) Buy the Rebound driveway markers here.
Flying Wish Remember wishing on a star? Julia Lambie has created a unique way to make a special wish – and it doesn’t require a clear night sky. Her Flying Wish Paper lets you celebrate every wish with fun, whimsy and a little bit of firepower. These wishing kits are truly magical. (Starting at $8.95-$14.95) Buy Flying Wish here.
