The First Gift blanket is a modern take on the heirloom blanket with a clever scientific twist. Meant to be continuously passed down from generation to generation, the blanket highlights the sanctity of genetics with a representation of each recipient’s own unique DNA added onto it when it is given to them. It’s a smart and personal reminder that the familial bond goes deeper than the surface.

The iPad is a very useful and portable device but you’d be surprised at the number of poorly designed wall mounts for it. The Wallee is one of the better ones and we’ve got your review right after the jump. Designed in the land down under – why wouldn’t you want something semi related to a kangaroo?

Once upon a time pocket cams were poor substitutions for the real thing but those days are over. Flip, one of the originators, still sits on top as providing the best all around pocket cams. Still in its sleek package and ridiculously simple UI, the Flip UltraHD, as its name implies, shoots 720p video at 60 fps. The image stabilization is better than any competitor and at $149, provides the best bang for your buck. Hit the jump for our review.

I just find this iPhone 4 case by Arkwhat hilarious. While Apple spends millions on R&D to make their phone as thin as possible, a soft goods manufacturer puts out a case to make it as fat as possible. The Arkhippo I – Love it! It’s made of dense foam in a myriad of colors – super lightweight and shaped like an old school brick. Yes, I’m sure those of you old enough to remember the beginnings of cellular technology will remember how FAT phones were.
The Dervish Coffee Cup takes inspiration from the Sufi Saints and their attire. Flowing robes that spin around as they twirl to their enchanting music! This essence is captured perfectly in the coffee-cup set of two. The double-walled porcelain cup gives a safe grip, making the cup handle an unnecessary attachment. Thanks to the curvilinear form of the plate, it is very easy to hold and carry. Once together, the two parts transform into a single, fluent form, preventing any risk of spilling. I’d love to have a set for myself!

It’s back to Mother Nature as far as the Shwood sunglasses are concerned. Handcrafted with a mix of precision technology and good ol’ fashioned craftsmanship, this collection features shades made from East Indian Rosewood coupled with mirrored and polarized lenses. The style seen here is called Ashland that comes packaged in a protective wooden hard case; crafted from a mix of Walnut and European Maple. A lot of wood in there I tell you! Fashionable and chic! Price begins at $145 a piece.
