Looking for a way to create an impression with him? Start by understanding that most men have a great sense of humor. They like things that are fun and interesting, and gifts that they can enjoy with their friends. For that reason, shopping for a novelty gift for him is a great idea. Not only will you save money as most novelty products are inexpensive, but you will also be giving him something he can laugh about with his friends.
Understanding Novelty Items
There is a lot of misconception about novelty products. First because they are inexpensive that they are lower quality. That is definitely not the case. The reason that novelty items are so affordable is because they typically follow popular trends. For instance, the Movember men’s health movement with the mustache campaign has spawned a huge following and demand for mustache adorned products. From coasters to kitchen carpets, from key chains to novelty party straws. Designers and manufacturers work together to provide affordable items that are reflective of what is trending now in popular culture.
For the Tech Guy
Many of the gifts provided by online novelty retailers are interesting or innovative gadgets that can be used in the home, in the kitchen or at the office and in the car. These types of products have a broad appeal because they are excellent conversational items. Everyone wants to be the first to show their friends a neat new gadget that they found and so giving one as a gift is always popular. Men love to compare and having something new and cool to show his friends is something he will enjoy.
For the Entertaining Guy
Not that all men aren’t entertaining but some really do enjoy throwing a good party. The perfect gift for him is something that will help him take his at home dinner parties or gatherings from fun to fabulous. Check out these great outdoor wine glass holders. If everyone is sitting outside have one for each guest to push into the ground beside their chairs. No more lost wine glasses or people tripping over ones left on the ground. Not only is it a cool gift, but it is a safe one too.

Do you know someone who loves gadgets that allow him to help others by fixing things? Check out this great Travel Tools Key Chain which features all the attachments a handyman needs to be helpful on one key chain. It’s something he is guaranteed to love. What about a Credit Card Survival Tool featuring a small compact solution to most needs on the go?

Before the Illinois State Journal and the State Register merged into one newspaper, there was a spirited battle for newspaper subscribers. The State Journal was the most prolific at staging spectacular stunts in the community in hopes of boosting its circulation numbers.
Enter Benny and Betty Fox, the famous death defying ‘sky dancers.’ They were billed as a brother and sister act but actually were not related. And Betty was not always the same person nor was she actually named Betty. Benny chose the name for his partner because he liked the sound of it.
Whoever she was, she was willing to put her life in Benny’s hands while they danced on an 18-inch wide disc, atop a poll 100 feet in the air. The Journal sponsored their visit to the city on at least two occasions in 1937 and again in 1946.
On October 6, 1937, they did six performances throughout the day from the roof of the Journal building at 313 S. Sixth St. The last performance at 8 p.m. was lit by four powerful floodlights.
Every inch of space available on the street in front of the Journal building was taken by people watching the stunt that evening, the paper reported. “Streets, windows, roofs and fire escapes all through the downtown area were jammed for the night show.” The Journal enthusiastically (and unbelievably) estimated the crowd at 100,000.
