The easiest to choose for was reporter Kyle Brown. For those of you who regularly follow Wacky World, you know that Kyle specializes in finding all the amazing things rubber bands can do. So it was a no-brainer when my grandson Tino, for his birthday, received the Rubber Band Racers project kit from Geek & Co. Science. According to the box, you can "make cars race, boats motor and planes fly with rubber band power."
Now if I could only find a way to steal Tino's kit and bring it into work without Tino noticing.
That could prove problematic.
Our online content editor, Erin Pustay Beaven, also was relatively easy to select for. She has written a number of times about silicone rubber items up for purchase. If I could, I'd get her a whole kitchen full of silicone gadgets and utensils. But I think we'll have to start off with the Core Kitchen set of eight essential silicone utensils, available from Home Depot. The set includes a spoon, slotted spoon, pointed spatula, slotted turner, basting brush, pasta fork, whisk and locking tongs. We'll have to fill in from there later.
Many of the following gift ideas I came upon during a tour of my local Costco (in between finding the best food samples).
Here's where I came upon the set of Goodyear-brand tire with rope dog toys for Lori DiFrancesco. She is our sales and conference coordinator, but also the owner/parent of two large dogs, whom I sure could get hours of joy from these toys. And it comes two to a package, so that works out perfectly.
