Hold on

The idox Traveler is designed to keep your iPod Nano, iPod Touch or iPhone stationary and upright to more easily enjoy videos, Web content, speakerphone calls, photos or podcasts—like Windy City Queercast. Simply snap your device into the Traveler; rubber feet on the bottom of the stand will keep it from slipping. Also, you won't look like a total fool trying to prop your iPod Touch against something.

$24.95-$34.95; www.idox360.com

New York, New York

Fight choreographer Andrew, poet Noel and personal trainer Petr are just a few of the treats in Sexy in the City, a 2010 calendar that features hunky models against various New York City backdrops. You might even want to look at the pics while listening to Alicia Keys and Jay-Z's instant-classic "Empire State of Mind" to get the full effect. By the way, a portion of the net proceeds will benefit Beauty Cares, which helps domestic-violence survivors.

$19.95; www.SexyInTheCityCalendar.com

Listen up

This holiday season, iFrogz has something for everyone—including custom headphones for your music-lover and iPhone- and BlackBerry-compatible earbuds with a built-in microphone for your favorite techie. iFrogz currently has three styles of completely customizable headphones. Customizable components include headband, base, side piece, speaker piece, cushions and hinge piece ( depending on earphone model ) ; the options make it possible to create more than 200,000 unique pairs of headphones—so you can definitely make your own statement, even if you listen to what everyone else likes. $19.99-$49.99; www.ifrogz.com

Let's chill

The ravi Instant Wine Refresher will likely become an indispensible item for anyone who throws dinner parties. The secret of this revolutionary cooler is that instead of chilling the entire bottle, the ravi cools the wine itself. As the wine flows through the ravi, its temperature instantly drops by an average of 12 degrees Fahrenheit. Cool.

$39.95; www.RaviSolution.com

Batt, man

If you're looking for intriguing home-furnishings items, try Hazelnut New Orleans, owned by openly gay Mad Men co-star Bryan Batt and his life/business partner, Tom Cianfichi. Among the items are glass lamps; pewter moose salt and pepper shakers; and the store's signature candle, which has a pear-and-rhubarb scent.

$32-$88; www.HazelnutNewOrleans.com
