GREAT GIFTS FOR THE GUYS

    
Desk accessories that are unique are becoming harder and harder to find.  Most executives will have a mini baseball bat or Newton’s cradle, but those are old news and desk statements were becoming a thing of the past... Until now! Mini Materials has some options that will cure severe cases of office boredom or give you a nice icebreaker in a time of need.  Here are a few ideas for those men in your life:
    24 Pack of Cinder Blocks on a Pallet – for that guy who still dreams of trading in the shirt and tie for a hard hat and some steel toe boots.
    Fire Pit Kit – the candles even smell like a campfire for that manly aroma in a one of a kind set-up.
    Cell Phone Charging Station – we all need a place to prop our phone up when it needs some juice, this little fort cannot be topped.
    Pallet Coasters – These are made with miniature nails, nicer than any pallet you’ve ever seen.  Sold in natural pine as well as an upgraded mahogany for that whiskey drinker with grizzly hair on his chest.

      The toy train community is one of the most authentic and long lasting hobby groups in the world.  Using the standard 1:12 scale, Mini Materials has miniature tool sets, cinder blocks, jersey barriers, parking curbs, pallets, and even mortar to build your own dioramas around the old tracks. 

       

      CREATIVE GIFT IDEAS FOR THAT SPECIAL LADY
