If you haven’t discovered it yet, fab.com is a terrific site. They find really fun, quirky products. I am now obsessed with today’s find – Native Union. Native Union makes retro phone hand sets for smartphones. When I showed this to my husband he looked at me really funny – so I’d think carefully about whom you give this too. But, for the right person, I think this could be the holiday go-to gift.
Who is the right person?
1. Anyone who is frustrated by the fact that when talking on a cell phone it is hard to multi-task because you cannot perch the phone between your ear and shoulder the way you could a good old handset.
2. Anyone paranoid about the potential brain cancer (or just “brain change”) effects of talking frequently with a cell phone next to one’s head.
3. Anyone who likes things just because they look cool and pretty.
4. I was pretty sure I had another idea about who needed this headset and suddenly can’t remember what it was — clearly the result of spending too much time with a cell phone pressed against my ear and burning brain cells.
The handset retails for $29.99. Native Union also offers a version with a weighted base for $49.99. The handset is available on fab.com, but is selling out fast. However, Native Union sells both versions on its site and Amazon carries them as well.
