Gear: Rufus Shirts Sample Sale
Get 50+% off button-downs from the Manhattan shirtmaker, who combines classic Savile Row tailoring with American steez for a look it terms “updated traditionalist” — perfect for the cyborg Amish in your life. []


Gadgets: Powerstick
Plug this pack-o’-Juicy-Fruit-sized stick into your USB port for about 90mins to fill, then select whichever of the nine included adapters fits the device that needs charging (iPod, cell phone, Blackberry, etc) — because there’s nothing worse than having your car break down in a snowstorm and not being able to text in to American Idol.

Gear: Ray-Ban Foldable Wayfarers
These limited-edition shades fold in half at the nose bridge and mid-earpiece for easy travel collapsibility. You know, just in case the aliens come for Tom Cruise and only have enough room for his Dopp Kit. [Saks 5th Avenue]

Art: Gum Blondes
Canadian Jason Konewald creates spot-on portraits of flaxen-haired starlets using nothing but masticated chewing gum; subjects include Gwyneth Paltrow, Avril Lavigne, Paris Hilton, and Britney Spears — for whom Konewald eschewed his preferred Trident in favor of Bubblicious “Grape Lunatic”. []
