Moon and Heart Perfume Locket
| |

This is such a great idea. Where I work, some calming essential oils would be really nice, but setting up a diffuser is out of the question. Wearing them as perfumes doesn't seem to last as long as I'd like, either. This is the perfect solution. The little puff balls fit inside their heart-shaped “cage” and retain their scents throughout the day.

I appreciate the different colors available, too, so I can use different ones to match my outfit that day, and to keep different ones set aside for particular scents. The necklace looks larger in the photos than it really is; the moon measures about 1.25″ tall. It looks really nice, and is perfect for work or casual settings.

It's easy to remove the puff balls, which I often do before dining, and the necklace looks great without, too. This is a really clever idea and a nice help to me each day.

Wood Carving Tools Kit
| |

Many of the best wood carving and engraving tools were made by companies which closed decades ago. Many of my grandfather's tools are still in good shape, but others are broken or just worn out. As I've begun more ambitious projects, though, I needed some additional tools to give me more options for my work. So I'm delighted to find these tools available, new and ready to go.

You'll still need your own wooden mallet, yet much of everything else is here — for all kinds of projects, from simple engraving to picture frames to bas relief sculptures. I appreciate the versatility this inexpensive set offers, which should be helpful for beginners to people who've been carving for years. A fantastic value!

Kirobo In-ear Noise Cancelling Earbuds
| |

While involved in television and other video production, I've used a variety of headphones, earbuds, and other high quality sound systems over the years. These are undoubtedly among the very best I've ever used. The audio response is excellent — very wide range, beyond the range of my hearing, with crisp highs and resounding lows.

The active noise canceling works well enough to noticeably improve and boost the sound quality, and (for once) these headphones worked perfectly, the first time, no configuring necessary. I work in a noisy environment, where hearing audio clearly (and filtering out surrounding noise) is imperative. These are a great way for me to achieve that.

The extra loop helps keep them in my ears, and the comfort level of these is just wonderful as well. Because of it's shape (to accommodate the high fidelity speakers, no doubt), I would suspect that they would fit some people better than others, particularly in terms of sealing off the ears from external sounds; However, there are three different soft silicon covers, so I suppose they would work well for nearly everyone.
