What is a Smart Pen?  It’s the modern way to take notes in class.  Pens like the Livescribe 2GB Echo Smartpen record everything your student writes and hears either together or separately.  They can tap anywhere on their notes taken on Livescribe Dot paper to replay the audio from that exact moment or transfer notes and audio to their Mac or Windows PC for later review, organization, and sharing.  They can even search their notes for fast location of critical sections.  Sharing is easy via email or other services.  They need to use special paper, but that’s a small drawback compared to how helpful this form of note-taking can be to students.  With all the Livescribe Dot paper formats, your student is sure to find one that is best for them including college-ruled notebooks, lined journals, blank journals, mini journals, A5-sized notebooks, grid notebooks, flip notepads, and even sticky notes.  They can even print their own dot paper for free using the Echo Desktop application.  With 2GB of memory, there is plenty of room for notes or audio including up to 200 hours of audio or thousands of pages of notes.  It comes with a 50-page tarter notebook, the Echo Desktop software, a micro USB cable, 2 ink cartridges, and a smartpen cap.  Give the gift that makes the most difficult part of college (other than the tests and quizzes) easier for them.

You like the idea of throwing them to the wolves, but then you remember how many times you’ve sat back and watched in disbelief. Add a car to the mix and it only gets worse. Trust us, roadside assistance is a really good idea. Because deep down inside, you know that for every happy ending, there’s a 1990 Camaro on the side of the road somewhere with a skeleton in the front seat.


they weren't kidding when they said these personal alarms were loud, issue i have is turning it off! I had to take the batteries out of it to shut it off, the ear piercing sound was driving me crazy. My other issue is who is it supposed to stop or deter? If it makes me deaf and hurts my ears using it does it really do what it is intended? I gave it 4 stars for it because of it not shutting off. i would prefer it to have a shut off i can use and not hurt my ears in the process
Hot, comforting mugs of darjeeling are just a steam whistle away with this sleek kettle. Even when it’s not in use, the streamlined design and retro hue make this kettle a must-have stovetop accessory. And let’s be real, there’s something about making tea the old-fashioned way that’s so much more satisfying than pushing some buttons on a microwave.
Send him back to school after winter break with all the essentials.

The student life isn’t exactly known for being full of culinary excellence (cue memories of mac and cheese and greasy pizza) and for the student who isn’t as adept in the kitchen, cooking can be intimidating. The Starving Students cookbook is full of page after page of recipes for the new chef, with advice on simple things like how to scramble eggs or make simple vegetarian dinners.


A long time ago, in the distant past, kids used to put baseball cards in the spokes of their wheels to turn their bikes into motorcycles. We’ve come a long way since then. Now, we modify our bikes to actually make them self-powered, not just sound like it. The GeoOrbital Wheel is super easy to install - just remove the front wheel of your bike and hook this thing up in its place, and the next thing you know, you’re leaving the other bikes in your dust. A great way to get around campus when you’re too hung over to pedal.
