Air CorkAir Cork

Air Cork is the perfect holiday gift for those who enjoy wine.  Either on its own, or as the ideal complement to a bottle of wine, any wine enthusiast would be happy to receive this handy and simple to use wine preserver.  Air Cork protects wine from oxidation, providing an airtight seal no matter how much wine is left in the bottle.

Simply lower the balloon end into the bottle until just at the top surface of the wine.  As you then easily pump, the balloon floats and seals itself to the side of the bottle.  To remove, squeeze the valve until the balloon completely deflates.  You can keep it stored in its convenient accompanying pouch and take it out for use again and again.  MSRP: $24.95; available online at aircork.com.

Regular pillows trap heat, but Chillow absorbs the heat that radiates from the body and releases it into the air, ensuring that it remains cooler than one’s body temperature. Chillow is activated simply by adding water to its inner chamber, after which a cup of water may need to be added monthly depending on climate. Chillow can be customized to four different cooling comfort levels to satisfy personal needs. Once its temperature is set, it stays at that level and provides cooling relief for hours. Chillow’s soft medical grade material is hypoallergenic and its vacuum-sealed edges ensure that it will not leak. Learn more at www.chillow.com.

wild birds 1Wild Birds Unlimited

Wild Birds Unlimited products are a great way to help connect families with nature and make for a good stocking stuffer.

Bird Seed Cylinders:

  • Hoot the Owl, Preston the Penguin, Buttons the Snowman and Rascal the Raccoon: The bird food cylinders offer a convenient alternative way to feed the birds. The whimsical shapes are a fantastic way to introduce children to nature. Each is packed with seeds and fruits to attract a wide variety of birds to your backyard. In particular, Rascal is made from sunflower chips and peanuts for the main body. The face and ears are canola (same thing used in Preston the Penguin’s body), eyes are apple and blueberry, nose is cherry and the feet are prunes. Rascal is 7” tall, 5 ¼” wide, about 3¾” deep. The price for each cylinder varies, but each is less than $20.

EcoClean Bird Feeder:

  • With its new line of EcoClean bird feeders, Wild Birds Unlimited is revolutionizing the way people feed their backyard birds. Available exclusively at Wild Birds Unlimited, EcoClean bird feeders protect themselves against the surface growth of bacteria, mold, mildew, fungus and other microbes.



Here’s a way to put the element of surprise back into giving cold hard cash :). Great stocking stuffers, too. A Boxai is a box, in a box, in a box.  Twelve amazing images on a theme, presented in a 3D format with a message on a folded Box Spring in the final box.  When you open the last box a bee flies out on a spring with the message: “Thank you for all you do to make life so sweet.”

Boxai make ideal gifts because:

  • they are stylish, yet inexpensive (just $10)
  • the Box Spring is blank on the back, ready for you to add your own personal message
  • you can write a poem or quote your favorite one
  • they have space for you to add a “small is beautiful” gift in the last box, if you wish
  • you can add cash – like a gift voucher, but less restrictive and no expiry date!
  • jewelry or fine silk lingerie will also fit nicely
  • (unlike greetings cards) they will not end up in the trash
  • they are functional art objects that are great for storing small, precious items

Giving a Boxai is a great way to:

  • mark a special occasion
  • pop a question
  • share your passion
  • create suspense
  • make a lasting impression

SYLVANIA Automotive Lighting products can provide not only a thoughtful gift but a useful one for drivers of any age, but especially seniors. Premium headlights can make a big difference in style, performance and safety. Which is especially important as drivers age they need all of the help they can get to see what is in front of them on the road. Also, with nearly half of the 250 million cars registered in the U.S. 11 years old or older, chances are many of them have faded, cloudy plastic headlight lenses.

SYLVANIA SilverStar ULTRA bulbs are the whitest and brightest bulbs made by the company and offer additional sideroad and downroad visibility compared to standard, worn halogen bulbs.

SYLVANIA Headlight Restoration Kit – a cost-effective way to remove the hazy/cloudy coating on old headlight lenses and protects against future UV damage. It may be the best $20 a consumer can spend to improve driving safety. Plus, when compared to replacement, it can save upwards of $300.


Brink’s Home Security’s Push Pull Rotate

Brink’s Home Security’s Push Pull Rotate door knobs and levers were introduced this summer at Lowe’s and Lowes.com. We believe this is the first update to the modern door knob since 1878.

Push Pull Rotate three-way door handles allow users to Push the knob, Pull the knob, or Rotate the knob. It makes it easier to open any door, whether its mom with groceries, dad with greasy hands, or even butler with wine and cheese tray to open a household door—whether from the garage or to the patio. Push Pull Rotate locking knobs and handles for exterior doors also include multiple security features.

There are hundreds of usage scenarios where having a door knob you don’t have to turn is an advantage. We have a demo video and some fun artwork that highlights some usages at http://www.brinksppr.com/ and a press release posted at http://bit.ly/hampton-ppr.

Push Pull Rotate products are available in several styles and finishes and are priced similar to standard, rotating knobs, starting at about $25.
