well-kept-screen-wipes

Sometimes a quick wipe with a microfiber cloth just isn't enough to clean all the junk off your screen, but carrying a cleaning kit with a spray bottle isn't always convenient.  You can just toss a pack of Well-Kept pre-moistened towelettes in your gear bag, and you'll be able to clean dirt, fingerprints, and smudges [...]

lightsaber-engagement-ring-2

Star Wars fan or not, this is truly a beautiful ring!  I'm not sure how comfortable it would be to wear because of the shape of the "lightsaber hilt" portion of the band, but the emeralds and diamonds are gorgeous.  The colors are based on Luke Skywalker's lightsaber, and the Lightsaber Engagement Ring is made [...]
