Albums, photo frames for baby's first years

Story of Me
Prinz's Little Angels selection of frames and coordinating albums features new additions to the 2011 baby collection. There are 11 new frame series and two album collections, all featuring a variety of formats, styles and price points. Commemorating baby’s first year is Once Upon a Time, a collage frame featuring word art matting with openings for 12 photos, one for each month, and a larger 5x7 opening to showcase baby’s one-year photo.


Also new in the Little Angels line is Just Arrived, a silverplated frame with shiny silver baby buggy and teddy bear accents. At the center of the frame is an area to record baby’s name, weight, length and birthdate. The frame holds a 4x6 photo.


Prinz’s best-selling baby frame, New Addition, suitable for displaying a sonogram photo, has prompted the company to introduce a new frame series, Counting the Days, featuring a 5x4 opening for sonogram or other photo. Featuring mirror star cutouts, the wood frame includes a heartwarming expression beneath the photo opening. Two styles are available – "We wished upon a star and here you are" and "Love at first sight."

Give Dad an upside-down beer glass gift on Father's Day


This upside-down beer glass novelty from Final Touch is made of hand-blown borosilicate glass. The insulated, double-wall design prevents condensation forming on the glass and marking the bar, table or linens. The design is said to keep beer colder than a typical pint glass (though the capacity is 13.5 ounces or 400 ml). It is sold in a gift box (singly or in a pair).

For Father's Day, give an electric grill


Hammacher Schlemmer calls its new grill "The Best Electric Grill." In tests, the grill reached an average temperature of 617.2 degrees F, 259.6 degrees higher than a competing model. The grill’s stainless steel grates have integrated electric heating elements that produce powerful, direct heat. Coils below the grates generate even, radiant heat to ensure thorough cooking.

The Best model has 216 square inches of cooking surface that holds up to six 8-ounce filet mignons. It scored the highest for features because it was the only unit with a hot dog roller that rotates automatically, it has a removable searing plate that accommodates vegetables or eggs, and it has two 13-inch by 11¾-inch prep shelves.
