The Dooney & Bourke Toscana Executive Duffel offers not only the high-quality craftsmanship that Dooney & Bourke are known for, but also the style and class that people love.

The outside pockets give him easy access to the things he needs like his phone or wallet, while the inside boasts several interior pockets to help keep things organized.
There is a detachable cotton webbing strap that makes it easy to carry though the airport or train station, keeping his hands free to shoot off emails or carry his coffee.

This innovative system allows you to set the temperature of your bed to exactly how you like it- even if there is more than one of you- so that you can get the most peaceful night’s rest imaginable.
OOLER is a temperature controlled sleep system that allows you to set the temperature of your actual bed to anywhere you’d like. No more wrapping yourself up in blankets only to kick off the covers half way through the night. No more restless sleep because he’s hot and you’re cold. Also, the OOLER allows you to cool just your bed and not the whole house.

It fits all beds and all mattresses, and is cheaper than running your air or heat constantly over night only to still fight with the covers. After all, can you really put a price on a good night’s sleep?
There is no doubt that dad loves to take his music wherever he goes. Whether he is entertaining guests or working out in the home gym, his favorite jams are always following him.

Dad can get his music started with just one tap using the captive touch interface, and his music will continue to stream for hours. This is a great speaker for the dad who needs his music with him always and loves the crisp, high-quality sound that goes along with it.
