Aluminum Wallet / Credit Card Holder

In this day of touchless payment, protecting your information is more important than ever. This aluminum case is decorative and also blocks RFID readers and scanners and it offers peace of mind.

Battery Pack

There is nothing quite as frustrating as being out and about and looking at your phone to find it has less than 10% battery remaining, especially if you know you will not be home for some time yet. The best fix for this problem is a portable charger. Because it charges using USB, it will work with nearly any device, as long as you have a compatible cord. Get two, so one can be in the car and one charging, so power will never be inaccessible.

Bluetooth Beanie

When it is cold outside, wearing earbuds under a hat can be difficult and annoying. Solve the problem with this hat that has built-in earphone speakers that connect wirelessly to Bluetooth on the phone, allowing the wearer to listen to music, talk on the phone, or otherwise use the device hands-free while walking, running, or being outside for any reason. Stay warm and stay connected.

Bluetooth Speaker

Perfect for indoors or out, this waterproof Bluetooth speaker offers excellent sound and connects easily to any Bluetooth-enabled device, as well as non-Bluetooth devices, if desired, via 3.5mm audio jack. The sturdy housing protects the speakers both from damage if dropped and from rain. Long playtime and quick charge make this a great choice for using in any situation.

Cable Organizer

If traveling is a common activity, or if a lot of time is spent in the car or away from home, an organizer to corral and sort all the different charger cables, SD cards, wall or car plugs, and other related items could end up being extremely useful. This protects your items from water and scratch damage.


No matter where a man goes, he can chronicle the experiences with this waterproof camera. With various resolutions for both video and still photos, this camera also has adjustments for view angle and image stabilization, as well as a remote control so the user can be in the picture easily. It is waterproof in the included airtight case, down to 30 meters. The remote is in a wristband, and that component is not waterproof.

Charging Station

Hardly anybody has only one device these days, so a charging station that can handle multiple devices is sure to come in handy! Set it on the counter, dresser, or nightstand and plug in up to six different things, including cell phones, smartphones, cameras, and other electronic devices that utilized USB Type-A plugs. It’s handy and it is safe as it is supported by FCC, ETL, CE, and RoHs certifications respectively.

Coffee Mug with Warmer

To keep coffee hot at the desk, at home or at work, this mug and its included base work together to keep the drink at optimal temperatures. When the coffee is gone, the base doubles as a wireless charger. It automatically knows which function to use, as the mug connects wirelessly to the base. Note that this base does not heat the coffee, but it does maintain its temperature.

Cordless Engraver

The 3/32-inch diamond tip on this cordless engraver will allow easy etching of all sorts of items for personalization and security. Because it is shaped like a pen with a light body, this engraver is simple to use and easy to control. It uses two AAA batteries, which are included.

Fitness Smartwatch

This multiple use smartwatch tracks steps, vitals, calories, and other activities while also being able to receive calls, texts, and notifications.
