Man’s Best Friend

Genuine Fred
Who’s The Man? You’re The Man! And who loves you unconditionally and can’t wait to see you every morning? Man’s Best Friend, that’s who.

Perk the coffee and pour the kibble with this matching set of morning dishes. You get a mug, and your furry friend gets a bowl with words that celebrate a relationship that requires no discussion or explanation: a man and his dog.

The matching set sells for $25. The love is priceless.

Misting Fan

Home Depot
Close your eyes and imagine a scorching hot day. There’s not a drop of moisture in the air. You would give anything for a breeze or a brief rain shower.

Now open your eyes and look at this: the Bucket Top Misting Fan from RYOBI. It’s a portable cooling station you can take anywhere. The fan is designed to rest on top of a 5-gallon bucket filled with water. The water is drawn into two brass nozzles that release a cooling mist. Point the fan above you to evaporate the water and cool the air, or point directly at you for a light, refreshing shower.

On the balcony, by the pool, or at the beach, use the rechargeable battery and a bucket full of water for easy, portable cooling. If you’re on a deck or patio, you can stay cool longer by connecting a power cord and a garden hose.

The RYOBI Bucket Top Misting Fan is available at Home Depot for about $100, including one rechargeable battery and a 5 gallon Home Depot bucket.
