Under the Tree Treasures · For Her


Channel your inner Joan Holloway while typing up your next memo on this USB Typewriter

Here is a great gift for the ‘Mad Men’ fans in your life. While we can’t all look like Joan Holloway, we can pretend we’re back in the 1960’s as we loudly clickity-clack on an old school typewriter.

The greatest thing is any USB capable computer can be hooked up to these classic machines – Mac, PC and even the iPad are all compatible. Even the modern keys like esc, ctrl, and alt have been added with a special toggle key. The best part…it still works as a proper typewriter if you ever want to get crazy and disconnect from the World Wide Web to write a proper letter!

So, for those of you out there who have a lady who longs for the days of the past or dreams of writing her first novel on an original typewriter, this is the perfect gift. It’s all feeling of a typewriter without the piles and piles of paper and Whiteout! – USB Typewriter – ($799 USD)

(Do-it-yourselfers can head here for a conversion kit to convert your own typewriter)

Under the Tree Treasures · For Him

Portal Companion Cube Cookie Jar

The Cookies are all true.

The Enrichment Center reminds you that the Weighted Companion Cube will never threaten to stab you and, in fact, cannot speak…but what it can do is store some damn cookies!

After successfully navigating several test chambers and defeating an antagonistic AI system, there is nothing better than some celebratory cake! Sadly, we all know there is no cake. The cake is a lie. But the cookies are all true!

And since we’re speaking of the truth, this beautiful officially licensed Portal 2 Collectible doesn’t necessarily need to be used for storing cookies. It could be used to store any number of things in stylish nerdiness!!

GLaDOS will never need to know! – Portal Companion Cube Cookie Jar ($29.99)
