Argard M10 Bluetooth Headset

Look at this tiny little headset! No wires, no clips. It’s less than the size of a quarter, and it’s so much better than the crazy-big-behind-the-ear ones that so many people wear even when they aren’t talking on their phones. Be slightly less obvious with this new gadget…

“…it doesn’t require a behind the ear clip, mainly because its unique shape ‘sticks’ in the ear… You put it on with one turning movement (yes, somewhat like a screw) and it just stays in your ear. And it obviously comes with three different sized silicone covers to adjust it to your earsize…”

Take Away Bird Feeder by Eva Solo

If you like our feathered friends, you might also like this lovely glass bird feeder. Very simple and elegant (as far as birdfeeders go), this looks like it would blend in nicely with any outdoor environment.

“This bird feeder is made from mouth-blown glass and designed to withstand wind, weather and beating wings. The ball can easily be suspended from bushes, trees and the eaves of your house – and filling it with seed and other natural products is extremely straightforward.”

Phone/PDA Charging Station

A charging station that actually looks good? For real, it’s true. Stations that house and charge our electronic appendages cut down on many unsightly cords that get tangled easily, and makes it ever so much easier to find the phone, camera, ipod, etc. So, hurray for one that does no harm to your aesthetic environment.

“You can corral up to three items and neatly tuck a 10” power strip out of sight behind the sliding door. No room on your desktop for the 13″ long Charging Station? You can also mount it to the wall as easily as a clock with two dry wall screws (included).”

Available in black or navy.
