Lets face it - house plants are a pain. You gotta water them, make sure they get enough sun/shade, keep the dog from chewing them. And, more often then not, they'll end up dying after a few months. Thats why you need your own cactus. Cacti are bulletproof. You can water them once every few weeks, leave them in the sun 24/7 and the dog wouldn't dare approach them. For only $7 this Saguaro Incubator Kit includes everything you need to easily grow your own at home. It comes with a terracotta pot, cacti soil mix, 150 seeds, planting instructions, and a pamphlet about saguaro trivia and history.

MUJI Handy Paper Shredder
We picked one of these manual shredders from MUJI a few weeks ago and everyone in the office is loving it. There is something oddly satisfying from using this to shred mail. Its cathartic - almost therapeutic. One of our interns said her stress levels have gone down and that it was her 'meditation.' Crazy right? Now don't get us wrong - if you have a ton of mail to shred, it will take forever to shred. And thicker card stock won't work. But for that rainy sunday afternoon when you need to shred up a few envelopes or bills, this inexpensive shredder is a delight to pull out. Makes a great gift too.
