The Logitech Craft


Current Price: $199 with two-day rush $16.87 shipping

Logitech Craft adapts to your unique workflow so you stay in the moment and deeply connected to what you’re making.

The standout feature of the Craft is the “creative input dial,” a large silver knob in the top left corner of the keyboard. Logitech has built integrations for seven apps — Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere, and InDesign; and Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel (although the Office integrations are only available on Windows for now). There are also some generic functions, like volume control or forward / back on pages that can be manually applied to any application (assuming it supports that input).

Secret Wood Unique Resin Ring


Current Prices: $90.00 to $180 with shipping from $12 to $30

Every ring is unique and one of a kind and showcases an enchanting secret world.
