Best Gift for a College Dorm Room ~ Mood-lites and Scents
So one guy got drunk in the 80s and torched the whole dorm and now you can’t have so much as a halogen lamp in your room. No candles, plus no incense, plus no showers equals no booty. So do the humane thing and get your smelly roommate the light bulb evaporating Mood-scents, so you can finally achieve color and odor harmony in your dorm. mood-factory.com
Best Way to Spend the $350 That’s Burning a Hole in Your Pocket ~ i Wood Sunglasses
You could just tape hundreds over your eyes, but that wouldn’t be nearly as stylish. Be the only one in your neighborhood wearing something that’s painstakingly hand-crafted from sustainable wood. But don't worry—while your glasses might splinter, your individuality won't—they're made in limited supply. iwoodecodesign.com
Best Ergonomic Shoes ~ Earth Shoes
Yes, I’m aware that the 70s are over, but that doesn’t mean that 70s fashions have to end. This vegan line of shoes is based on Negative Heel™ Technology. A slightly elevated toe allows the leg to straighten, the hips to come forward and align with the spine, which in turn rolls your shoulders back to open your chest for easier breathing. earthshoes.com
Best Solar Product ~ The Voltaic Solar Bag
These bags are an old favorite. Furnished with solar panels, the bag stores energy on a Lithium Ion battery pack so that you can charge your cell phone, MP3 player, and other small electronic devices. Available in messenger bag and backpack styles.
