GIVEAWAY-Element-Case-Gift-Certificates

As we’ve all probably discovered on more than one occasion, cellphones and tablets aren’t immune to gravity. They do everything they’re supposed to and some things they’re not (if you gave your iDevice a get out of jail free card) amazingly, but until someone figures out a way to make the Panasonic Toughbook equivalent of a cellphone (we’re thinking titanium and carbon fiber) we’re going to need a case. It’s not just fall damage either because cases also protect from scratches, dents and dings. The problem always ends up boiling down to a sacrifice between security and beauty. The safe bet used to mean beating your phone with an ugly stick in the name of protection, but that’s not the case with Element Case. Constructed from either ultra-high impact resistant TPU polymer or CNC aluminum and available in more colors and styles than a rainbow, each rugged device condom prevents you from having to resort to plan b (that Startac you’ve had buried in your closet for years) – without making your phone look like it was designed by a Cubist.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
