Welcome to the 2019 Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

We will be sharing awesome gifts for young and old.  Let those you love, know how special they are.  Flowers and candy are great, but here are some other cool suggestions!


When your feet are happy, the rest of you tends to follow along!  These shoes are a game changer for me.  I cannot believe how light-weight they are, yet how supportive. I have plantar faciitis in my right heel and I’ve been in excruciating pain for the past 4 months.  The clogs that were sent to me have helped immensely!


“Ocloog lovers take note: here’s the dress clog you’ve been longing for with all the recovery benefits you rely on. While the glossy upper goes from work to play, you get the superior impact absorption, arch support and biomechanically designed footbed you need. “




OOFOS are scientifically proven to reduce stress on your body and help you feel better after a workout or during a long day on your feet. Our footwear is powered by OOfoam technology which speeds up your recovery process. #recoverfaster #feeltheOO

OOFOS brand footwear is powered by an innovative, cutting-edge proprietary foam material we designed with a world-class chemist. We call it OOFOAM. The unique OOFEEL of the patented OOFOAM foot-bed delivers unparalleled recovery and cushioning benefits that recharge and rejuvenate your feet so they feel free.

The OOFOAM absorbs the shock from your stride, shapes to your foot, and reduces the fatigue of impact on your feet and legs.

OOFOAM’s revolutionary formulation outlasts the demands of normal wear and tear, extending the OOFOS experience long past the life expectancy of some other footwear.

OOFOAM is non-marking, water resistant, and machine washable. The only way to really connect with OOFOAM is to experience the OOFEEL for yourself!

And if having your feet feel great isn’t enough…your Heart can feel great too. Check out the OOFOS Project Pink – and their donations to the Dana-Farber Breast Cancer Research team.

For example, they can “make a machine that can scramble an egg,” or “build a creature with spinning arms.” Great for girls and boys ages 8 and up.

It began more than forty years ago, when Precious Moments® creator, Sam Butcher, began drawing the endearing teardrop-eyed children he called “Precious Moments,” as gifts for family and friends. Today, his Precious Moments artwork is among the most recognized art in the world, sharing messages of loving, caring and sharing with collectors from around the globe.

A man of deep personal faith and conviction, Sam demonstrated artistic talent at an early age. Encouraged by his mother, he pursued formal art training following his high school graduation. His dedication earned him a scholarship to the College of Arts & Crafts in Berkeley.

In the early 1970s, Sam and a friend, Bill Biel, started a small company to produce his Precious Moments art on a line of cards and posters, calling their company Jonathan & David. They took their goods to the annual Christian Booksellers Association Convention in Anaheim, California. Their tiny booth was filled with enthusiastic retailers wanting to order the new line and the crowd became so large, neighboring vendors came over to help the two young men write orders.

Precious Moments is truly achieving goals set forth by its mission statement: to make the world a better place by helping others share the gift of love. The longevity of the Precious Moments brand is a testimony to its ability to stand the test of time and persevere with its core values of goodness, quality, creativity, and stewardship at its forefront.

Get the guy (or gal) in your life, a comb that will last for ages!
“Triple the power. Get all three variants of the steeltooth comb for a discount when all three are purchased together. Great for adding volume to long hair. Allows for slick hairstyles. Fine tooth is great for beards. Reliable and Sturdy Handle provides precision and leverage. Parts hair very well. Detangles stubborn curly hair of any hair length”
For many years I’ve had issues getting my hairstyle just the way I wanted it when I was getting ready for school as a kid or heading to work as an adult. My hair was always thick and the products I used would do the job, but it would always take forever. At a certain point I was late to work again and hit a breaking point. I thought there had to be something else out there that was better than what I was using. I kind of thought about it for a bit and imagined the teeth of plastic combs bending as they tugged through my hair. That’s when I started to look for wooden and steel combs thinking that the harder teeth would pass through my hair easier. Sure enough these things existed and I bought one at an exorbitant price tag that did not make much sense. Regardless, it worked and I was happy with the purchase. But I thought there had to be many like me. And many that would not want to dish out tons of money for a simple tool like a comb. We all know you can get one for $3 at the drug store (even though it sucks).
I started Steeltooth because I identified a gap in the market. You have the super expensive combs you can buy for a fancy gift, or you can get something horribly cheap. The expensive combs make you feel guilty about getting pomade or gunk on them, although they are easy to clean, it still feels more like something that shouldn’t be abused. The cheap plastic combs are susceptible to breaking and generate static in your hair which causes split ends and fly aways which make them a pain to use. So Steeltooth is the guy in the middle, a comb that is high quality and will last for life, but humble enough to be a tool you’ll be happy to use every day.
