13 years of fun, funny, and functional gifts—same as it ever was and constantly changing.

Mama Bear Mug


Our very first product ordered was from Minneapolis based Jane Jenni. Jane's colorful pictogram personality mugs were an instant hit. Today, they remain a best seller.

and Now
Jane Jenni (the artist) has retired. But we're restocked with all her remaining mugs. So order your favorite mug today as quantities are limited.


Then...and Now!

Blue Q's Carpe Diem sock is our best selling sock. Sometimes you just have to say "F' it" and seize the day. Available in Mens and Womens sizes.


We were excited to be a featured stop in CITY WALKS CHICAGO. The new edition has been updated to include 50 places to explore on foot in the city of Chicago.

Slap Map Chicago Map Bracelet

and Now.
In the past five years, Chicago has created more than 200 miles of on-street protected, buffered and shared bike lanes. The Chicago Slap Map, a slap bracelet with a foldable Chicago map, is the perfect accessory for exploring by bike!


100's of styles of socks

In December 2018, we opened a sock pop-up shop in Lincoln Square because socks really are the perfect stocking stuffer! We are currently offering 100's of styles of FEETured socks online and in store. If there's something you like, there's probably a sock of it.


Bacon Bandages


We don't want to toot our own hog, but we were riding on the BACON bandwagon pretty early. Bacon Bandages from Accoutrements are an all-time best seller (and still make us hungry every time we see them).

and Now
Unicorns are the new Bacon! Kids of all ages can't get enough of the mystical creatures. We're up to our horns in unicorn gifts and toys. Shop our magical collection of rainbows and unicorns now.


Next trend alert: LLAMAS
Llama Duster Desktop Cleaning Pet

We thank you for your business and for shopping at an independent, women owned and managed small business.

We are grateful for your support.
