Nostalgic Treat

I ran across these yummy looking S'mores on an artisanal food site I like and have mentioned before called Foodzie. They are made by a company called A Little Bit Of Sweet in Portland. I can't vouch for the flavor yet (although I will probably send them to someone soon to test them out), but they look great and any vendor I have ordered from on Foodzie so far has been great.

Get A Tie & Help Others At The Same Time

I love to find gifts to suggest that allow you to give something special to someone and help others at the same time. I've written about Tom's Shoes before (they give away a pair of shoes for every pair they sell) and I just read about Figs in Santa Monica that sells a variety of styles of cool ties (not just bow ties) and for each tie sold that make sure a child in Africa has a proper school uniform (in many places there you can't attend without one).

Reading Scripts On The iPad

I'm resisting the urge to get an iPad right now (since I have a iPhone, Kindle and laptop it seems pointless), but I'm glad to know that if I do decide to get one at some point that there are ways to read scripts on it that are user-friendly and easy on the eyes. John August did a great post about a app he got for the iPad that allows him to read scripts, so if you or your boss might be getting one and want to read scripts on it, take a minute and check it out.
