Smell is the sense that is most closely tied to our memories and experiences. Homesick candles aim to capture these scents and let you take that feeling of home with you wherever you are. Crafted from soy and made in the USA, they've created candles for all 50 states as well as a handful of the most popular cities. Take Oregon for example: "Like a breakfast in the great forests of Oregon, this fragrance is reminiscent of maple, pears, and roasted almonds layered over a complex base of fir needles, pine, sandalwood, and rich cedar." Mmm. These make a great gift for a hometown friend or family member or for yourself when feeling a little homesick.
Beefer High Temperature Grill
Most of the grills that you get from Home Depot or Lowes can only heat up to around 700 degrees Fahrenheit. While this is fine for occasional grilling, you need much higher temperatures to achieve the best results for steaks, fish and other meats. Enter the Beefer. This high-temperature gas grill is capable of heating up to an astounding 1500 degrees. At this temperature, you can produce a caramelizing sear in a matter of seconds and give steakhouse quality meats from your backyard. The form factor more closely resembles an in-house appliance and can be moved with greater ease than a traditional grill. Prices start at $899.
