Blue Mountain: Best Local Skiing and Snowboarding In Pennsylvania...

We love Blue Mountain Ski Resort. It's an awesome winter or summer destination that's nestled in Little Gap Valley alongside the Pocono Mountains, although we'll just focus on winter right now. Blue Mountain Ski Resort is our favorite ski/snowboarding resort. With the highest vertical at 1,082 feet, you will find a great variety of excellent terrain for all skill levels with approximately 39 trails! You can carve up the slopes, shred on terrain parks or tube with your family. Packed snow means packed fun.

Blue Mountain's well maintained slopes have the longest trails you'll find anywhere in the area and they're so much fun because they go on for a while. If you're used to skiing out west or in the Rockies, many local ski resorts will be disappointing because their runs last for a minute or so and you're done. Not at Blue Mountain... the trails take a while so you can really enjoy the scenery and have a chance to be in the moment. Their perfectly manicured snow, challenging trails (Challenge and Razor's Edge give New England a run for their money), and even their lift systems are excellent.

To be creative. To be bold. To be bored. To just . . . be. Today, our overscheduled and overstimulated children are using their imaginations less than ever. It’s a crisis in the making. And it’s why Melissa & Doug is committed to making products that inspire open-ended thinking and encourage kids to see new possibilities. It’s part of their bigger vision to Take Back Childhood. Because by giving children a true childhood, we give them a path to realizing their full potential!

In simpler terms, Liberty Skis are the most gorgeous, best performing, and best quality skis we've seen in decades. Forget about those boring graphics you've seen from almost every other ski manufacturer. Liberty Skis are decorated with fresh, cool, and beautiful designs. They make a grand statement and will certainly catch the attention of many jealous skiers while you're waiting for your lift. We've looked high and low, and we finally found exactly what we were searching for (company and skis). As far as the company goes, you can't find a better group of people who are knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful. We love everything about Liberty Skis. You will, too.

Liberty makes high performance skis rooted in functional innovation and respect for the environment. Every material they use, design, and produce is done with the ultimate goal of elevating your experience on skis. Liberty skis perform so well because they are designed and built without regard to marketing hype or the latest trend. They test all our designs and materials themselves to see if they improve the way their skis ride in a variety of conditions. If they do not improve the ski experience, then they don’t go in their skis. A great example of functional innovation is their exclusive use of bamboo laminate cores in their skis. Liberty was the first and remains the ONLY ski company to use bamboo in all of their skis. Bamboo is strong, light, eco friendly, and gives skis a unique stability and liveliness not found with any other material. Bamboo helps you ski better. Combining unique designs and the best materials available, they hand build skis to exacting standards, allowing Liberty to offer the best warranty in the industry at 3 years. They hand select bamboo from southern China, edges from Germany, bases from France, adhesives from the US, high tech composites from Germany, topsheets from Austria and plastics from Japan to create the most fun and versatile skis available.

LifeStraw: A Water Filtration Product That's A Lifesaver In Many Ways...

The evolution of LifeStraw has been a remarkable journey. It started in 1994 when the Carter Center approached LifeStraw’s parent company, Vestergaard, to develop a filter that could remove Guinea worm larvae from water it was contaminating. Vestergaard designed a cloth filter but then evolved it into a more effective pipe form in 1999. Today, more than 37 million LifeStraw Guinea Worm filters have contributed to the near-eradication of the disease. Inspired by the impact of the LifeStraw Guinea Worm filter, Vestergaard worked to develop a product that could filter out virtually all of the microbiological contaminants that make water unsafe to drink. The result was LifeStraw technology, introduced in 2005 as a personal “straw-like” filter. It was designed for people in developing countries who don’t have water piped in from municipal sources or other access to safe water and emergency settings following natural disasters when water is contaminated.

We could easily list dozens of their products but this time around we'll share our favorites of all.

Anker Cables: For All Of Your Computer And Cell Phone Charging Needs...

Over the years we have written about dozens of different cables and charging devices. We are always a little disappointed at either the quality, durability, or dependability of these types of products. That was, until we found Anker.

Anker is the global leader in charging technology. This includes wireless charging, car charging, and their best-selling portable and wall chargers. Anker is pioneering Power Delivery technology to charge phones, tablets, and laptops at unprecedented speeds.

Anker is a multinational company with offices in the US, Japan, and China. They were founded in September 2011 with the objective of bringing consumers affordable and high-quality mobile charging solutions, such as portable batteries, usb cables, and mobile phone chargers. Anker has become the leader in the Charging Category with over 20 Million users worldwide.

From the minute you take your cable out of their high-quality and very impressive packaging (that you only sometimes even receive with much higher-priced products), you know you have a quality product. You can tell that Anker cares about their image. They want you to love their products, and we do.

Power Block and Kettlebell: Get An Amazing Workout With Limited Space and Costs...

PowerBlock was founded in 1991 by specialty fitness equipment designers. While searching for specific needs in the fitness industry, they were drawn to the large amounts of dumbbells they would encounter in the stores they visited. They thought there could be a better way to provide fitness enthusiasts with the performance advantage of hand weights without the space and restrictions of old-fashioned racks and dumbbells and so PowerBlock was born. They continue to be the leader in the fitness industry as they constantly strive to outdo themselves in the pursuit of excellence. The two products below are perfect!

PowerBlock Adjustable Kettlebell. This is the most ergonomic adjustable kettlebell ever. The PowerBlock kettlebell is a selectorized cast iron kettlebell. Its contoured shell provides exceptional comfort, it feels like a solid iron kettlebell with the advantages of adjustability as it replaces 4 kettlebells in the space of one. You can change increments: 18, 22, 26 and 35 lbs. If you are training at home for strength and conditioning, consider the efficient and space saving design of the PowerBlock Adjustable Kettlebell. Changing the position of the magnetized selector pin on the side of the kettlebell will engage and lock in the core blocks from the top of the stack down adding overall weight to the kettlebell for use during exercise. The unused core blocks are left behind in their original storage position on a flat surface. Any exercise you can do with a traditional kettlebell you can do with this awesome, space saving, quick change selectorized kettlebell!

PowerBlock Dumbbell Sets.  Imagine having the equivalent of a whole rack of dumbbells in the space of just one pair for a fraction of the price! Widely acclaimed as the world’s best adjustable dumbbells, their unique modular construction is the only system that can expand to match your increasing strength, removing the need to get great workout with lots of equipment. PowerBlocks are perfectly balanced, easy to use and unbelievably compact, making them ideal for home gyms. They’re also the heaviest quick-change dumbbells available, and – unlike traditional adjustable dumbbells – switching weights is quick, fuss-free and secure, so they’re perfect for any workout that requires different levels of resistance for different exercises. We love how compact, balanced and great they feel to work out with. They're so simple to use, very stable, highly functional, and built really well, so durable. They adjust in many different increments so the entire family can use just one set! You can also buy additional weight, if needed. What a great space saver these are!

BOSU, Surge Storm, and Kamagon: Three Companies, One Great Workout...


What began as the launch of one of the most innovative products the fitness industry has ever seen, turned out to be just the start of a journey that continues to expand, shape and define functional training. Invented by David Weck, the BOSU Balance Trainer debuted in 2000 and quickly became one of the most successful fitness training products in the world. Originally, the name “BOSU” was an acronym for “Both Sides Up.” It meant that the BOSU Balance Trainer could be used on either side, the dome or the platform. Today, the term “BOSU” has evolved beyond the product to now mean “Both Sides Utilized,” a mindful approach to exercise that is a step beyond traditional training. This clarity of who we are and what we want to offer inspired the development of additional BOSU products and programming, all of which are grounded in exercise science and proven in real-life application.

With an amazing, new TrueDepth camera system that takes pictures like never before, Face ID (so cool), Super Retina Display, exceptional battery life, immersive stereo speakers, wireless charging, a wide color system from camera to display, and water and dust resistance, this IS the best iPhone thus far.

The Super Retina display employs new techniques and technology to precisely follow the curves of the design, all the way to the elegantly rounded corners. The gorgeous, all-glass front and back feature the most durable glass ever in a smartphone while a highly polished, surgical-grade stainless steel band seamlessly wraps around and reinforces iPhone X. A seven-layer color process allows for precise color hues and opacity on the glass finish, and a reflective optical layer enhances the rich colors, making the design as elegant as it is durable, while maintaining water and dust resistance.

ICEtrekker's Diamond Grip Boot Grips: Don't Fear Ice or Snow, Conquer Them...

A quarter of a century ago in the Italian Alps, ICEtrekker's founders, producers of high end tire chains, came across a clever product used by walkers to navigate steep icy hills during the winter. It occurred to them that this concept could be improved upon, so they put their collective expertise together and began developing a line of personal traction devices based on the same principles used for vehicle traction: chains, studs and cables. What became clear in this process was the need to address different types of users, conditions and affordability. Taking these things into consideration, ICEtrekker developed the ICEtrekkers Chains, Spikes and Diamond Grip lines. The Goal - to provide the best possible products, at the best possible prices for the urban walker, firefighter, policeman or backcountry hiker.

Diamond Grips. Whatever you're doing, if it involves any type of icy or snowy environment (or even gravel, rock or mud), give yourself peace of mind by putting a pair of Diamond Grips on your boots. They're a must have in any icy situation. Safety always comes first!

Diamond Grips provide aggressive traction for all winter walking conditions, from boilerplate ice to backcountry snow and everything in between. They are also effective when transitioning through gravel, rock and mud from icy surfaces. Made of case hardened steel alloy, and strung on steel aircraft cable, the patented Diamond Beads have hundreds of biting edges that grip in all directions. The bead assemblies are riveted to a tough rubber sling which remains elastic in subzero temperatures. They are easy to put on and take off, yet fit snugly and stay on without needing additional straps. Diamond Grips are also self clearing, so there is no snow or ice build up. There is no other traction footwear product like it!

Uncommon Goods: Wonderfully Unique Gifts Travel...

We have even more wonderful gifts from Uncommon Goods to add this season. This time we're focusing on travel and/or fitness. Uncommon Goods has been a staple in our gift guides for ten-plus years because their gifts are clever and unique. We always know we can count on them for the perfect gift. If you love the "oohs" and "ahhs" reaction from your lucky recipients, you'll be happy to know there will be plenty of those. Just about every item in their catalog is wonderful, and its loaded with hundreds of sweet surprises. Uncommon Goods offers great gifts for family, friends, teachers, stocking stuffers and grab bags.

In 1999, their founder Dave Bolotsky visited a Smithsonian Museum craft show in Washington D.C. and was captivated by the variety of unique handmade goods and the talented people behind them. He saw there was a significant public demand for beautiful design. At the same time, he realized that the artists working to make those pieces were often traveling great distances in order to sell their wares at the show. Inspired by his experience, Dave had a vision to create something that had never existed before—an online marketplace to connect makers and their creations with individuals looking for truly special goods, regardless of the physical distance between the maker and the shopper. Dave turned this idea into UncommonGoods. He continued traveling to craft fairs and trade shows, meeting artists and finding stand-out merchandise, while running the business out of his home on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Before long, the company had outgrown Dave's apartment, and moved through three successively larger offices in downtown Manhattan, eventually settling in our current location in Brooklyn, NY.

Kate Spade Cell Phone Crossbody Bags: The Best Way To Carry Your Cell Phone Freely...

Crisp color, graphic prints and playful sophistication are the hallmarks of Kate Spade New York. From handbags and clothing to jewelry, fashion accessories, fragrance, eyewear, shoes, swimwear, home decor, desk accessories, stationery, tabletop and gifts, their exuberant approach to the everyday encourages personal style with a dash of incandescent charm. They call it living colorfully.

Kate Spade New York has over 140 retail shops and outlet stores across the united states, and more than 175 shops internationally. Their colorful products are sold in more than 450 doors worldwide, in every time zone and on every continent. Whether in San Francisco, Sao Paulo or Shanghai, their shops are always warm and inviting.

It all started when Kate Brosnahan Spade, a former accessories editor at Mademoiselle, set out to design the perfect handbag. Debuting with just six silhouettes, she combined sleek, utilitarian shapes and colorful palettes in an entirely new way. And a star was born.

Women and fashion editors fell for the fresh, modern sensibility, and their first shop in NYC swiftly opened in 1996. As the company grew, their graphic approach and trademark wit created a visual shorthand for a brand recognizable the world over.

In 2007, spade turned the reins to design powerhouse Kate Spade & Company (formerly known as Liz Claiborne, Inc.). Shortly after, they broadened the line and quickly launched clothing and jewelry collections, followed by the introduction of bedding, legwear and fragrance. Today they aim to inspire colorful living through their handbags and clothing to jewelry, shoes, stationery, eyewear, baby, fragrance, tabletop, bedding and gifts. All the while, they've never lost sight of who they are: their spirited approach, commitment to curiosity and passion for sharing their colorful world still shapes all that is Kate Spade New York.

For the true essentialists among us, the North South Crossbody takes hands-free to a new level. An organized carrier for your cards, cash, key and iphone (literally just the necessities), this tiny, wallet-sized pack, attached to a thin strap, will help you master the art of pared-back commuting. It's made from matte Stella leather with matching trim and features an iPhone case with crossbody strap. There are three credit card slots, an exterior slide pocket for your mobile device, and it's 6"l" x 1.5"w x 3.5"h and has a drop length of 22". It's the perfect, classy accessory.

Kryptonite Locks And Lights: You Shouldn't Own A Bike Without Them...

Over 40 years ago, Kryptonite began with a mission. With $1500, some ingenuity, creative security ideas, and a Volkswagen Van, Michael Zane was able to invent the first U-Lock and travel around the US spreading the message of need for bicycle security. Thus Kryptonite was born. While much has changed in bicycling, and bicycle security, their objective remains the same, and they are here to empower you to protect what you value. Through constant innovation, expert guidance, and never-ending commitment, Kryptonite will continue to pursue their passion and do everything they can to ensure you can go where you want, when you want by offering smart, serious security solutions.

A legendary test for Kryptonite’s new bicycle locks came in 1972. The Second Avenue Bicycle Shop in New York City locked a three-speed bicycle to a signpost in Greenwich Village under Kryptonite founder Michael Zane’s direction. Although all of the removable parts were immediately stripped by thieves, the bicycle itself remained for thirty days and thirty nights. The Kryptonite lock and the bike frame were still in place, even though the lock had been attacked numerous times. Publicity from this event gave Kryptonite the boost it needed, forever changing the face of bicycle security. Kryptonite stands behind its products, and gives customers an additional peace of mind. Often imitated, never duplicated.

Some interesting facts: After receiving an unusually high number of Anti-Theft Protection claims coming from the 4 zip codes in New York City in 1989, Kryptonite was forced to drop stop offering its Anti-Theft Protection Offer in this city. Not recognizing this turn of events as a loss, but a challenge, Kryptonite reinstated the offer in 1994 with the release of the New York Lock, which has become a flagship lock for the company. Twenty-two years later, Kryptonite returned to the streets of the Big Apple to test its latest innovation - The New York Lock. In April, 1994, the New York Post laid down the ultimate challenge: Could Kryptonite’s New York Lock last 48 hours on the toughest streets of New York? Michael Zane and Neil McDaid, Director, Product Development and Design, set out to prove, once again, Kryptonite was up to the test. In a city where over 100,000 bikes were stolen each year, Kryptonite and the New York Post took a brand new, bright green Univega road bike worth $600 and locked it to a parking meter in the East Village; the “Bermuda Triangle” of NY bicycle thievery. For a full 48 hours, the bike remained locked on the corner of Avenue A and 11th Street.
