Saving Money is Fab-ulous

This morning I opened my email and noticed a little 20% off treat from Fab.  Not sure if you have heard of this site, but it is one of many e-commerce sites that have popped up in recent years.  Just like Gilt or One Kings Lane, they are dedicated to selling a wide variety of products at discounted prices.  The reason I love Fab more than most, though, is the eclectic mix they offer their customers.  I mean, where else can your shopping cart include a year subscription to Garden & Gun magazine, adorable baby clothes, and a vibrator?  

Now I know my last post said I was bringing you gift guides next week, but I decided to get a jump start on things since Fab is offering 20% off (plus a $25 credit if you spend $150) for the next four days.  I just purchased a book that has been on my wish list all year, but if I could go hog wild I'd purchase tons more stuff.  Here are a few items that top my list, whether for myself or someone else....

iPhone Key Ring ChargerEarlier this year I mentioned how I keep my portable charger in my purse for whenever I need it.  What about men who don't carry a murse or those of you that might forget to take it with you on a daily basis?  The solution is this little gem that attaches to your key ring.  You'll never find your phone battery knocking on death's door again!

Honey Badger Flask:  I'm from the south where it is pretty normal to own a flask, or several, but a honey badger themed flask is definitely not something you see everyday.  Now you an excuse to drink like you don't give a damn...

Winter & Summer Shakers:  Creative, cute, conversation starters.  These salt & pepper shakers are everything your current shakers are not.  I keep thinking about how they need one made for course sea salt and have a tornado in the middle.  Then you can make it hail at every meal.

Wright Books:  My parents built a lovely FLW inspired home a few years ago, and what better gift than these books.  Whether you are just a fan of amazing architecture, love big coffee table books or consider Wright a genius in every sense of the word, these books are amazing...and you won't find a better price anywhere else.  I promise. 

Gold Piggy Bank:  I have been obsessed with this bank for over a year.  It cost a decent chunk of change (pun intended), which makes me want to empty the two jars of change I currently have, roll all of it, take said rolls to the bank, then go home and buy this sucker.  That is saying a lot, too, because rolling change is not my favorite thing to do.  Why does it cost so much?  Well, this bank is produced from a cast of a real pig (who lost his life from natural causes), and the result is a highly realistic scuplture.  It is part art, part bank....completely fabulous.  

Glasscape:  I had beta fish that lived 10 years.  His name was Xavier and he would have loved this fish bowl.  Hand blown "mountains" - each is one of a kind.  Not into fish?  Make a terrarium, float some candles, contain that endless supply of paperclips.

Infinity Scarf:  Hi, my name is Lauren, and I'm a scarfaholic.  Yup.  I like scarves....a lot.  They keep me warm and double as an accessory.  This one in particular is a cross between a scarf and a necklace.  My favorite is the grey gold, but the bold red is great for the holidays.   

Record Player:  I listen to vinyl, and you should, too.  This is a great starter record player, and I love that you can close the lid without having to remove the record.  This one plays all three record speeds, and features input/output cords.  The built in speakers won't bring down the house, but they still let you do a decent about of rocking out. 

Electronic Clock:  I may not wear a watch, but I really like to know the time.  This one reminds me of a binary clock, without having to deciper a code to tell the time.  You can also change the language in case this is a gift for your French boss or Eskimoian boyfriend.  

Arrow Earrings:  I really dig gold fish hook earrings, especially when they are dainty enough to wear in the day.  These are unique and the price is pretty awesome, too. 

Hot Pink Boxes:  Storage meets art.  These little cubes are part of MoMA's permanent collection, and that should be no surprise considering they have kept spaces tidy for more than half a century.  I'm finding myself drawn to pops of bright pinks these days, but they have tons more color options.   

What do you think?  Any Fab items you can't live without?
