Tabletop firepit for smores

Give your friend or family member a tabletop fire pit! These cute mini versions are perfect for roasting smores and other treats on a summer night. Sometimes referred to as a tabletop firepit “bowl” because of their small size.

Get a campfire feel right in your backyard without the mess of a big fire. Enjoy roasting marshmallows, or just having a small fire while on a balcony, patio, or your own backyard.

Tabletop firepits for smores are lightweight and portable – easily take the party anywhere! Here are other features to consider:

  • A small bowl firepit will only have a burn time of a little over 1 hour. You won’t be able to refill it with fuel because it will be too hot to handle.
  • Mini tabletop firepit models usually run off of  isopropyl alcohol, rubbing alcohol or bioethanol for a clean and odorless flame.
  • All tabletop firepits should provide a pad to protect the surface it is on and an enclosure to dissipate heat (double burn cup) to protect users.

Tabletop firepits are generally not recommended for indoor use, as they can pose a fire hazard and potentially cause indoor air quality issues. Most tabletop firepits are designed to be used outdoors, where there is proper ventilation and the risk of fire is lower.

Tabletop firepits typically use propane or natural gas as a fuel source, which can produce carbon monoxide and other harmful gases if not properly ventilated. In addition, the flames from a tabletop firepit can potentially ignite nearby objects or materials, causing a fire.

The mini and personal firepits are not intended to give off heat, but for a convenient ambiance affect.

Otherwise, twister machines are a fun way to get fit. Everyone is looking for a novel way to take the boredom out of exercise, so this gift could be well received.

Trinket dish

Trinket boxes, plates, dishes, trays all make good gifts for several reasons. Both men and women have jewelry, loose change, and small misc. items that need a catch-all spot. Trinket dishes do that.

The trinket dish world is fascinating – so intriguing, in fact, that GGS has written a deep-dive article into trinket boxes. Read it and you’ll agree that trinket boxes are a gift giver’s dream!

Toe rings

Toe rings are popular jewelry adornment for the feet. Women who love to get foot manicures often show an interest in toe rings for the complete pretty feet package.

Toe rings can easily be found on Amazon, but specialty sites too, particularly Indian culture sites. Toe rings are also created by self-employed artisans, so check out places like Etsy.

Quirksmith is an up and rising jewelry company founded by two Indian sisters that employs over 60% of females, which includes artisans across India. The Quirksmith tag line, “Wear your emotions”.

Note that toe rings can be purchased as adjustable or fitted. Just like you would buy a fitted ring for a hand, the same goes for toes. Adjustable rings are smart – there are more designs available and you don’t have to know the giftee’s size. Also factor in that feet and toes can swell due to walking, so size is always a moving target.


In cultures like India, the type of metal a toe ring is made from has meaning. The website My Gold Guide lists the rules of wearing gold, particularly in India. Gold is considered a sign of wealth in India, as in most of the world. However, My Gold Guide notes that “It is advisable not to wear gold below the waist as it may attract bad luck.”

That is why Indian-inspired toe and ankle jewelry is so often silver. Sterling silver, white gold, gold toe rings, enamel, brass, Black Hills Gold toe ring

In addition, popular themes include fish toe rings, sunflower toe rings, infinity toe rings, lotus toe rings, elephant toe rings


The number of toe rings a person wears is a personal preference, unless there is a cultural dictation, such as in India.

Modern Culture Jewelry, explains that “Traditional toe rings are an essential element of Indian weddings, particularly for brides. They are typically worn on the second toe of both feet and are believed to have religious, cultural, and health benefits.”

Melissa’s Fancy Feet is an excellent resource for toe ring questions. Melissa offers this advice, “Most people wear their ring on the second toe– in the mid-section of the toe. This has been found to be most comfortable. Toe rings are also worn on the big toe,3rd, 4th, and pinky toe too.”


If you have come across some toe rings with tiny bells on, you may be curious about them. You may even be surprised on how elaborate toe rings can be. They look like this:

This ring type is the ghungroo, a toe ring known for a cluster of small hanging bells. Kathac Club provides more information on the term, explaining that the word Ghungroo is relatively new. Ghungroo is formerly known as Nupur (a stimulus experience) connected with Kathac dance.

Therefore reference to Ghungroo, or Ghungroo ethnic is referring to the jewelery incorporating little bells that evoke emotions that add life to Indian dance. This could mean toe rings, ankle rings, bracelets.

The Kathac Club is a fascinating read. It explains that ghungroos need to be uniform in size so the sound produced is uniform. They even go on to say that the number of ghungroos should be betweein 100-250 per ankle!

The ghungroo jewelry is so novel and beautiful that it would not be surprising that it enters mainstream American culture. Toe rings with ghungroo can be found in many online Indian jewelry specialty stores, such as:

Tactile Turn pen

I read the back story on Tactile Turn pens and am impressed. If you want a high-quality luxury gift for a man (or woman) check out the Tactile Turn pens. These pens do cost money, giving the gift of a Tactile Turn pen could be the first “nice” pen your guy experiences.

If your man isn’t a pen snob, he could be after handling one of these fine writing instruments. A Tactile Turn pen could even qualify as an “experience” gift! The Tactile Turn pen has been described by users as a “workhorse” of a pen with commendable features such as build quality, materials, and superb push mechanism and a wide variety of refills.

Here are just a few things that make an investment in a Tactile Turn pen worthwhile:

  • Lifetime warranty
  • Made in the USA (Texas)
  • Custom engraving

Devoted fans of Tactile Turn pens describe the pens: “love the heft of the pen” “the side click and grip are unbelievable!”

Favorite models of the Tactile pen include : Tactile Turn Fountain Pen, Hi Mark Tactile Pen, Tactile Pen Bolt Action.

Besides the win of giving a high-quality gift, the Tactile Turn pen comes with a good story. As I always say, give a gift with a good story, and it’s like giving two gifts.

Will Hodges started Tactile Turn pens because he was “frustrated with how disconnected we are from the things we buy and how they’re made; frustrated that high-quality, small-scale manufacturing has become so inaccessible to the average person.”

Will took things into his own hands and bought an old, WWII-era lathe, rented 160ft² in the corner of a friend’s workshop and made his first 1,000 pens by hand. Anyone who appreciates a job well done should be supporting Tactile Turn pens!

By the way, if I didn’t convince you to purchase a Tactile quality machined pen, maybe I can convince you to check out their quality knives. The Tactile company actually makes their own screws and pivots for these knives. Whoa. Check out the Tactile Knife Company page.

Two-way radio

What is difference between a two way radio and walkie talkie?

There is no significant difference between a two-way radio and a walkie-talkie. Both terms are used interchangeably to refer to a portable radio that can transmit and receive audio signals over a range of distances.

The term “walkie-talkie” is often used to refer to a simple, handheld radio that is used for short-range communication, typically within a few miles. Walkie-talkies are often used by children, hikers, and other outdoor enthusiasts for communication in remote areas.

Tank bag for motorcycle

Popular brands of tank bags:

What is a magnetic tank bag?

A magnetic tank bag is a type of motorcycle tank bag that uses magnets to attach to the fuel tank of a motorcycle. The bag is designed with strong magnets that are placed on the bottom of the bag, which attach to the metal surface of the fuel tank. This allows the bag to be securely attached to the motorcycle while riding, without the need for straps or other fasteners.

Magnetic tank bags are popular among motorcycle riders because they are easy to attach and remove, and they don’t require any special mounting hardware or installation. They are also convenient for storing small items like cell phones, wallets, or sunglasses, as they can be easily accessed while riding.

However, it’s important to note that not all motorcycles are compatible with magnetic tank bags. Some motorcycles have plastic or non-magnetic fuel tanks, which means that a magnetic tank bag cannot be attached. Additionally, some riders may prefer to use a strap-on tank bag for added security, especially for long rides or rough terrain.

Overall, a magnetic tank bag can be a convenient and practical accessory for motorcycle riders, but it’s important to choose a bag that is compatible with your motorcycle and meets your specific needs.

Do magnetic tank bags scratch the fuel tank of a motorcycle?

Magnetic tank bags can potentially scratch the fuel tank of a motorcycle if they are not used properly or if the bag is not designed with protective features. The magnets used to attach the bag to the tank can create a strong magnetic force that can rub against the paint or surface of the tank, causing scratches or other damage.

To prevent scratches, many magnetic tank bags are designed with protective features like a soft felt or rubber lining that sits between the magnets and the fuel tank. This helps to cushion the bag and protect the tank from scratches or other damage. Some bags also have adjustable straps or buckles that can be used to secure the bag in place and prevent it from shifting or rubbing against the tank.

It’s important to choose a high-quality magnetic tank bag that is designed with protective features and that is compatible with your motorcycle’s fuel tank. Additionally, it’s a good idea to periodically inspect the bag and the fuel tank for any signs of damage or wear, and to remove the bag when not in use to prevent any potential damage.

What to look for in a motorcycle tank bag?

When looking for a motorcycle tank bag, there are several features to consider to ensure that you choose a bag that is functional, durable, and convenient. Here are some of the features to look for:

  1. Size and capacity: Choose a tank bag that is the right size for your motorcycle and has enough capacity to hold all of your essential items. Consider the size of your fuel tank and the amount of space you need for your belongings.
  2. Mounting system: Look for a tank bag with a secure and easy-to-use mounting system that fits your motorcycle. Some bags use magnets, while others use straps or buckles to attach to the tank.
  3. Material quality: Choose a tank bag that is made from high-quality, durable materials that can withstand the elements and daily wear and tear. Look for bags made from materials like nylon, leather, or canvas.
  4. Compartments and pockets: Look for a tank bag with multiple compartments and pockets to help you organize your belongings. Some bags have specific compartments for items like cell phones or GPS devices.
  5. Waterproofing: Choose a tank bag that is waterproof or water-resistant to protect your belongings from rain or other moisture.
  6. Accessibility: Look for a tank bag that is easy to access while you’re riding. Some bags have zippers or buckles that can be opened quickly and easily.
  7. Safety features: Choose a tank bag that has reflective materials or other safety features to help you stay visible to other drivers while you’re on the road.

Overall, it’s important to choose a tank bag that is functional, durable, and convenient, and that meets your specific needs as a motorcycle rider.
