Phiaton PS 210 BTNC Bluetooth 3.0 Active Noise Cancelling Stereo Earphones with Mic

That’s a pretty long name for a set of headphones, but this item from Phiaton is loaded with features. What’s unique is that they combine both Bluetooth 3.0 and noise-cancellation in one half-in-ear headset. They also make it easy to plug in the audio cable to bypass wireless mode/battery operation when needed. Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity provides increased bandwidth, longer battery life and wider range, while making music sound more natural and thus improving the sound quality dramatically. The Noise Blocker Active Noise Cancellation technology blocks out up to 95% of ambient background noise, which is great for commuters and travelers. Finally, Phiaton’s Echo-Off technology eliminates most background noise while on a phone call. These earphones will be great for anyone on your list looking for quality and versatility.

Cobra CXT 545 28-Mile Range Walkie Talkie

Here’s the ultimate gift for kids of all ages and anyone who loves the outdoors and activities like camping, hiking, the beach, road trips etc. Walkie talkies are also great for safety purposes, as well in a wide variety of situations. The Cobra units performed very well for us and are loaded with features, including rubberized grips and belt clip, micro-USB charging, digital display, 22 channels combined with 121 privacy codes, water resistant, built-in LED flashlight, dedicated weather button and rechargeable NiMH batteries and a two-port charging dock. It’s amazing how advanced these units are compared to what we had years ago. You can’t help but have fun with walkie talkies, but they also have tons of practical uses as well.

Hard Rock T-Shirts

If you’re looking for stocking stuffers for music fans, check out the rock t-shirts available at HardRock.com. They have impressive designs for artists like U2 and Eric Clapton along with many others. Each t-shirt benefits a charity closely connected with the artist. We checked out the 100% cotton shirts and were impressed with the quality and definitely liked the tag-less design. The Hard Rock website has tons of gift options for men and women, so check it out as you start your shopping.

Belkin 2.1A Dual USB Car Charger

In today’s connected world, having a convenient charge is critical, particularly when you’re on the go. With this cool device, you can charge two phones, tablets or other devices at once. This 20 watt charger features 2.1 amps per port for fast charging for your phone or tablet. The dual car charger comes with a 4-foot Lightning to USB cable for unlimited play and standby time while on the road. With dual ports, your passenger can charge a USB powered phone or tablet at the same time using a compatible USB data cable. This super-compact unit plugs into any car power outlet and is perfect for road trips.

Zippo Hand Warmers

These hand warmers are perfect for sporting events, hunting, winter sports, sleigh rides and any other outdoor activity that involves cold weather. The thin design makes them fit easily into your pocket, and they provide up to 12 hours of consistent heat as opposed to disposable warmers. These metal warmers use lighter fluid and are odorless, and they also come with a fleece warming bag, so they’re comfortable to the touch. Check out the Zippo site for more stocking stuffer ideas as well.

Moleskine Products

There’s just something about the Moleskine brand that oozes quality, which is probably why it’s become so popular among people across the world. With an incredible variety of notebooks, journals and planners available in several different sizes to meet your needs, Moleskine makes a great gift for anyone, whether it’s a simple stocking stuffer or an entire bundle of faux leather-bound joy. Recently, the company has expanded their line with a limited edition series of products based on iconic properties like Lego, The Hobbit, Star Wars, Peanuts and Mickey Mouse, adding some flair to its trademark look. It only makes sense that Moleskine would continue to grow their brand into other areas as well, and their new partnership with MILK to create custom photo books is a no-brainer considering the influx of other likeminded startups. The process of building a photo album isn’t quite as user-friendly as some of the other sites out there, but the finished product adopts the same style as the classic Moleskine notebook, ensuring your memories look good whether the book is open or sitting on the shelf.
