For a Gift with a Punch Try the Collar Stay Punch

When I first began in the rabbinate, I wore a suit every day. That meant six and sometimes seven days a week were spent in a dress shirt, tie and suit. Those days are long gone, but I still wear a suit a few days a week. That’s where the Collar Stay Punch Raina got me for Hannukah comes in.



Monster Airlink Elements: Jewelry in Your Ear, Jewelry You Can Hear

Among the many headphones and wireless speakers that we saw at Monster’s CES booth, was a small display with three pairs of truly wireless in-ear headphones. They were all similar in style, but one set was aimed towards work-outs. The other two sets were what we were eyeing, though; one look at the Monster Airlink Elements, and we were smitten.

I received the Distil Union MagLock Folly Sunglasses for review. These aren’t any sunglasses though. They frames are unbreakable. The polarized lenses are good for your eyes.

We all know at least one person who is nearly impossible to shop for, whether it’s because they usually buy everything that they need when they see it or because they answer “I don’t know” when you gently probe them for things they might need. That’s okay, we are here to help!


Fossil Q Grant Review: It’s Smarter Than the Average Watch

You know how I can tell smartwatches have officially hit the mainstream? I showed a coworker the Fossil Q Grant, and she attempted to tap the glass, thinking it was a touchscreen along the lines of the Android Wear powered smartwatches that Fossil has been marketing.




Nomad Sport Strap for Apple Watch Goes Everywhere You Do

I recently reviewed the leather Nomad Modern Strap. It’s a lovely way to dress up your Apple Watch. If, however, I am going to wear a nice watch, I’m likely to choose to wear the Movado Raina gave me on the day of our wedding. For my Apple Watch, I’m using the Nomad Sport Strap; it looks and feels great.


Original Grain Showcases the Art Form of the Analog Watch

I test a lot of gadgets and gear for this site, and none of them have received the compliments or interest that the Original Grain “The Barrel” watch has.
