ALL THATíS NEW & INNOVATIVE
The question is what the Kaito "Endurance" lantern wonít do. It wonít make the call for you, but it will charge your cell phone or iPod—and thatís just for starters. Tucked inside the lightweight, heavy-duty splash-proof casing are a 12-LED lantern, 3-LED flashlight in top of unit, loud emergency siren with 3 red LED flashing light, AM/FM radio with built-in dynamic speaker, compass, ultrasonic mosquito repeller, nightlight and charger. Just turn the crank handle to charge the internal rechargeable batteries—youíll never run out of power and the LEDs last for years. Under a pound, itís perfect for the car, cabin, boat, camping and all outdoor activities, and itís a lifesaver at home for power outages. $39.95

A Rose Is a Rose
Your program participants will love the elegance of the Orrefors Roses in pure crystal. Malin Lindahl has impressively used the natural shape of the rose when creating a votive, bowl and vase for this series. Rose was launched in spring 2009. And with the votive, the sparkling rose petals conceal a candle at their core. A new small bowl with a soft rose pattern in sparklingly clear Orrefors crystal complements the range in spring 2010. A perfect gift.

Kosta Bodaís springís Grass collection is a brilliantly colored tribute to nature and love. Designer Anna Ehrnerís feeling for glass and its qualities makes each of her products unique. The choice of green, orange and black is inspired by the life cycle of the plant, and the vases stand as tall and proud as prairie grass. The technique of applying thin layers of glass to the thicker layer beneath creates additional depth to this pattern. As always, handcraft and artistry are Kosta Bodaís hallmark.

The durable Dominica bamboo cutting board features a groove to catch run-off. It also features a beautiful inlay of both the light and dark colors running down the center. The board is reversible, so you can use one side with the groove and then flip over for a flat serving surface. Although bamboo is 16 percent harder than maple, it is soft enough not to dull your knives.
