Rika: Mock Croc Coffee Sleeve

Rika: Mock Croc Coffee Sleeve

The invention of the coffee sleeve was a pretty clever bit of thinking outside the cup. The Rika, a mock croc leather coffee sleeve from Jimmy Choo, is well… a pretty clever bit of thinking outside the pocketbook. Way outside at $165 a pop.

Gama-Go Bowtie Bag Clips

Gama-Go Bow-tie Bag Clips

Clip-on ties are not usually considered to be the epitome of high-class. Oh how wrong that is! The Gama-Go Bowtie Bag Clips combine high style and salty snacks. These clip-on ties not only ooze class and style, but they also keep chips and the like from going stale. Considering that the greatest social faux pas is serving stale crackers with a cheese ball, these things might just be the height of refinement.

Candy Cane Tea (Infuser)

DCI Candy Cane Tea Infuser

Candy canes are nice to look at; eating them… well, eh. Let’s just say there are plenty of other candy options that many would reach for first. Perhaps that’s why they are only plentiful during one time of the year. (Just like the evil creation known as candy corn.) Luckily there is a way to have your candy and not have to eat it too.

The DCI Candy Cane Tea Infuser is a clever way to enjoy the ubiquitous holiday ‘treat’ without having to pry it away from your teeth hours later. Fill with tea leaves, steep as desired and relax to a nice cup of tea. Perhaps while hanging real candy canes on the tree.

Product Description:
Have a delightful cup of tea at the Holidays with this Candy Cane Tea Infuser. This red and white striped infuser will hold your favorite tea leaves and brew you the perfect cup of tea. Simply put loose tea inside the candy cane, close and hang from your mug. Fill with hot water and brew tea to your desired strength. Remove infuser and enjoy.

After the jump, check out another product photo better showing how this is accomplished. And for the heck of it, an example of how not to make a pancake plate.
