Remember the cryptex from The Da Vinci Code book and movies – the small, but complicated vault that would destroy the contents unless opened with the proper code? A company called 4Thought Products is offering two cryptex-like enclosures to make your friends work for their gifts. The Vino Vault Wine Cryptex fits over a wine bottle and delays gratification until the recipient breaks the five-letter code that opens the lock. The Puzzle Pod Cryptex holds money or a small gift inside a clear enclosure that’s just out of reach until the five-letter code is entered. Once you get the gift, you can continue to use the Puzzle Pod as a coin and money bank. Both items are made of ABS plastic with an antique chrome and black nickel plated finish. The Puzzle Pod is $23.95; the Vino Vault is $25.00 and comes with a Spin the Bottle game and a wine bottle template so you can be sure the bottle will fit the enclosure before you purchase it.
