While that’s undeniably deliciously awesome, the cherry on top that has me falling scoop over cone for eCreamery is their hilarious No More Vanilla Gifts campaign. They’re taking a stand against vanilla gift giving which they claim, “can lead to tragedy, embarrassment and shame.”

I’m inclined to agree. I’ve included a couple of their videos for your viewing pleasure but visit the site to see more. Some show a not-so magical gift exchange, while others show the excitement of giving an amazing custom gift—which in their case is of course ice cream. Too fun.

Give Fresh Air? Oui Oui! 100% Air from Paris & New York City

Original Canned Air from New York City by Cooperativ

Original Canned Air from New York City

I’m totally not kidding. This is 100% canned air.

Now before you get all WTF on me, have a look at the charm (and the atmosphere) packed into these things.

Original Canned Air Formula from New York City

New York City Canned Air Formula

Created by traveler and photographer Kirill Rudenko, he writes of the can from New York City:

Direct from our supplier in NYC. The air formula is as pictured and may contain traces of Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens or Staten Island.

It’s 100% bio. Fresh air from New York relieves stress, cures homesickness 
and helps fight nostalgia. It is made by careful hands in the heart of the city.

Get yourself a piece of the City to remember. Feeling down? Got the blues? Buy a whole box of Air and open the cans whenever you feel sad, remember the atmosphere, marvelous time you spent in New York City and feel better. Never been to NYC? Order your can online and begin your journey while still at home!

Quite appropriate for the right person, wouldn’t you say?

Darth Vader & Son: Imagining Darth the Dad

Darth Vader and Son - book cover

Ready for one of the most adorably geeky what-ifs you’ve ever seen? It’s a new book just in time for Father’s Day—Darth Vader and Son.

I. Know! It’s everything you’re imagining right this moment.

Dreamed up by celebrated illustrator and author Jeffery Brown, the book considers: What if Darth Vader took an active role in raising his son? What if “Luke, I am your father” was just a stern admonishment from an annoyed dad?

Presenting the trials and joys of parenting through the lens of a galaxy far, far away, Darth Vader and Son addresses everything from Take Your Child to Work Day on the Death Star to using the Force to raid the cookie jar.

A great gift for expecting dads, granddads, geeky dads, movie buff dads, and every dad in between.

And now, a couple pages for you and a quirky book trailer too. Enjoy!
