My birthday gift from my parents via a Unica Home gift certificate arrived this week. Isn't it cool? It's a Blomus magazine collector. I got Bob the business card collector of the same design for Father's Day.

For such contemporary offerings, the online ordering is freakishly low-tech. My gift certificate was hand-written and hand-numbered. When ordering, I entered the number and they had to call me on a telephone (so last decade) to get my payment information for the balance. Other than that, their customer service is great, very nice people and the shipment arrived quickly.
