Ice Bucket, Tongs and Tong Holder

The ice bucket is a must have for the barware collection because it means easy access to ice for mixed drinks. This is definitely worth considering as a gift idea for the guy into entertaining.

This set looks cool because of the tongs and added tong holder (a convenient place to store them when not in use).

Backpack Beach Chairs

We just celebrated Memorial Day and now we are in the final stretch to the summer and beach season. Actually for many people, we're already into beach season. A good beach chair that is easy to carry is a must for the guy who spends some time at the beach. One that can be carried on his back sounds very cool because it frees up his hands to carry all the other stuff needed for a fun day at the beach (e.g. beach bag, bodyboard, skimboard, shovel, cooler, etc.)

Check out these two possible gift idea options for backpack beach chairs:

Bouncing Fun & Exercise for The Whole Family

Marissa over at WhaHappen? recently ran an Act Like A Kid Contest. And while many of her readers had a lot of great ideas, not too many came through on documenting their fun via photo (check out the "winners" here>>).

One of the things I took out of the contest was that bouncing is closely associated with fun, it also can be a great way to sneak in some exercise while having fun. Trampolines offer a great way to have a lot of cool fun while bouncing and would make a great gift idea for the family.
