Can’t Pass It Up

I have a really uncanny memory for internet passwords. It’s weird. I’m not superhuman – I do have to reset my passwords about 25% of the time, but in general my mind is pretty good at internalizing the 100 or so places I probably have login accounts. The same can’t be said for the rest of the world, and part of me thinks – provided you can trust the ones you love – it’s not a bad idea to leave behind your password records, should anything happen to you. Dark! Dark! I’m sorry.

Anyway if you simply have a forgetful friend or a still-getting-the-hang-of-this-crazy-interwebs-thing-family-member, the people at Bob’s Your Uncle feel their pain. So they’ve created a very handy and conveniently pretty ‘Password Book’, where you can either jot down your actual passwords, or a clue to jog your memory.

While you’re on the site, be sure to check out some of their other gifts as well. The 8 Days A Week planner lets you sort out your life from Monday to Sunday, with space for ‘Someday’ as well, available in mini and large versions.

I also love these vintage-inspired ‘valet trays’, perfect for the console table in your front hallway. Drop your mail and your keys in their respective trays and never lose them, or get buried in a mound of clutter, again. The trays are so pretty, you’ll WANT to keep them junk-free.

Buying for a bookworm? Check out these tossaway pagemarkers that make for perfect bookmarks, or even ideal for students, hardworking lawyers, or that funny Aunt that loves to clip things out of the paper for you.

Clearly today’s post has been a bit of a hodgepodge, but sometimes you stumble upon a gift shop that has a ton of cool, diverse ideas. In this post alone we’ve covered great ideas for housewarmings, birthdays, mother’s day, or other little occasions, all for under $50 a pop. Bob’s Your Uncle offers shipping to Canada, although you can also find many of their products in gift shops – I’ve seen those Eight Days a Week journals all over the place. Happy shopping!
