You know - we never think to get a fun corkscrew - just one that works and is touted to do the job. In our experience hiring a Captain like Captain Banana should probably do the job just fine after a few glasses of wine. Designed by Stefano Giovannoni in 2009, the parrot sitting on top of the "captain" turns as you place it over your wine bottle.

We for one are tired of simple square or round waffles with no interactivity. This design concept of a waffle maker that makes maze filled waffles is pretty interesting. The only problem - once you solve the maze you'll be pretty bored with these waffles.

Dubbed the S5, the Sonos Play 5 All-In-One Wireless Music Player has 5 integrated speakers powered by 5 digital amps for room-filling sound. We think given the control you can do with your iPod or iPhone this makes for a great kitchen radio. You can enjoy unlimited music, wirelessly play iTunes, free Internet radio, Pandora, Napster and more. They've even recently updated the Sonos to use Spotify and others. The simple setup and wireless expandability to play different songs in different rooms (you can sync up multiple Sonos boxes for around the house sound) makes this an amazing product. Sonos requires a high-speed Internet connection and wireless router.

Don't you just want to finish the last part of the game while you make a little dinner, or perhaps watch some re-runs of Lassie? We do and this 7-inch widescreen LCD display with built-in ATSC digital TV tuner for high quality viewing is perfect for doing both. It features under-cabinet mounting for clutter-free kitchen counters, and the flip-down display panel saves counter space. There's even a MP3 Link with stand for portable music playback, and a magnetic remote control for convenient mounting onto fridge. We're not sure if we need yet another cooking timer but there's even one built in.

You can add a touch of lavender to your drinks with this infused sugar set. You add lavender to this dispenser with some granulated sugar and over a few weeks the lavender's subtle, gentle and light flavor will be absorbed, without the strong aroma. Once your sugar has been infused with lavender's delicate flavor you can add it to a host of homemade delights: sorbets, pie fillings, muffins, brownies, cookies, lemonade, hot chocolate, and even cups of tea. Pretty amazing gift idea, and something different for those pure of heart and flavor.
