The Dr. Dreidel

What do you get the West Coast rap lover for Hanukkah? You could go with an iTunes gift card so they can download some Kendrick Lamar, or you could give them something way better with the Dr. Dreidel. Okay, so you can't actually buy it (at least yet), but it's still pretty stellar. Each side features a Dre face that corresponds to a standard action you'd take while playing. For example, when nothing happens, Dre's face is dead-pan, when you get to take the whole pot, Dr. Dre gives the thumbs up. The packaging even has a modified Beats by Dre logo that displays a "d" on it. Hopefully it's on sale for the next Festival of Lights in Compton.

The Messograf Pen SHOP

Your average guy uses an an average pen: unremarkable and cheap. It writes, and that's the extent of its talents (maybe you occasionally use it to pensively chew on). But considering we all use a writing implement virtually every single day, it makes sense that aforementioned implement incorporates a little more into its repertoire. The Messograf pen is just that.  Actually it's "just that" and a whole lot more, incorporating a ruler, calipers, tread gauge, thread scale.... the list goes on. It also happens to be a smooth refillable ballpoint, as well as fashioned from solid metal in a handsome utilitarian shape.   It's a definite step up from a Bic, though some would make the argument writing in the dirt with a stick is a step up from a Bic. ... check it out
