To top it off, no sticker shock! They are based in Chicago but ship anywhere in the US.

This may be the most expensive coffee cup you’ve ever seen, but you’d be smart for buying it. This super-caffeinated Powercup can charge up to 3 devices simultaneously. By the time your boss gets into the office, all her devices would be fully charged and ready to get to work.

FINALLY – just what you’ve been looking for! Right?

Hands-free forearm mount for everything, anything and everywhere!

Not to disappoint you, but the iArm is not for sale — it’s the box that’s for sale! Ha! Prank Pack is a company that makes a line of fake gift boxes that appear to contain ridiculous products. Our favorites are the iArm, the Pet Petter (a contraption that pets your pet so you no longer have to!) and the Dream Griddle (an alarm clock that cooks your eggs so you wake up to breakfast in bread!). Be ready with your camera as you watch your boss do a triple take as he opens his gift!
