Skymall Monday

SkyMall Monday: Bed Bug Sleeping Cocoon (Poll)

SkyMall Monday: Bed Bug Sleeping Cocoon (Poll) Hotel beds are gross. That's just a fact. Frankly, everything in your hotel room is contaminated with something (including bodily fluids) and not just the hellholes where you expect to find filth. These days, however, more and more people are worried about a particular...

SkyMall Monday: Velvet Rasta Hat

SkyMall Monday: Velvet Rasta Hat A person's choice of religion is a serious matter. For many, there is no choice in the matter. They are born into a faith and their spiritual path through life is already mapped out. For others, the search for answers is a quest that lasts a lifetime. Here at "SkyMall...

SkyMall Monday: T-Rex Dinosaur Trophy Frieze

SkyMall Monday: T-Rex Dinosaur Trophy Frieze I don't know much about hunting (and what I do know I learned from Zach Everson) but I've always wanted an animal trophy on my wall. However, I don't want to kill something just for sport (unless it's the most dangerous game) and finding an animal that I can track, kill...

SkyMall Monday: Arm Exercise Weights

SkyMall Monday: Arm Exercise Weights SkyMall Monday has a rich history of promoting fitness equipment that combines wellness and the workplace. From the Sit Fit to the Trekdesk and the Springflex UB, we've enjoyed showing you how to use SkyMall products to maximize your time at the office. However, we've only...

SkyMall Monday: Toilet Dog & Cat Water Bowl

SkyMall Monday: Toilet Dog & Cat Water Bowl Dogs and cats have an odd fascination with toilets. They try to drink from toilets, they fall into toilets and they are mesmerized by the sounds made when you flush toilets. Here at SkyMall Monday headquarters, we have one furry toilet drinker who hits the bowl hard when...

SkyMall Monday: Toothpaste Tablets

SkyMall Monday: Toothpaste Tablets The restrictions that the TSA places on liquids in our carry-on luggage are frustrating for everyone. How are we supposed to pack all of our lotions, creams, ointments, salves, balms, rinses and sprays in a single one-quart baggie (without getting sneaky)? Looking good isn't...

SkyMall Monday: Super-Sized David Statue

SkyMall Monday: Super-Sized David Statue I don't profess to "get" art. Show me cherubs and I just see a bunch of babies that could use some diapers. A painting of a horse? I'm going to assume that the artist really admired those equine thighs because I do not see any deeper meaning to that portrait. Here at SkyMall...

SkyMall Monday: Giddyup! Core Exerciser

SkyMall Monday: Giddyup! Core Exerciser The best pieces of exercise equipment incorporate a healthy dose of sexual innuendo. It keeps the user motivated and makes for great people watching at the gym. I mean, isn't that basically the whole idea behind the Shake Weight? Here at SkyMall Monday headquarters, we try...

SkyMall Monday: Sonic Boom Sweetheart Clock

SkyMall Monday: Sonic Boom Sweetheart Clock Boxes of chocolates. Pillows. Even pepperoni pizzas. On Valentine's Day, you'll see anything and everything shaped like a heart. However, you can't start your cavalcade of hearts on Valentine's Day until you wake up. For many people, though, that's the hardest part of their...

SkyMall Monday: Undead Elvis & Marilyn

SkyMall Monday: Undead Elvis & Marilyn How we remember our heroes usually depends on when we idolized them. The images that move us the most get etched into our brains. As a kid, I wanted to be Indiana Jones. In my mind, Harrison Ford will always been that whip-toting adventurer (though not the one with the...

SkyMall Monday: Zenhaus Dog Crate

SkyMall Monday: Zenhaus Dog Crate Living with a dog means giving up much of your domestic life to an animal that doesn't know how to share space. You live with fur everywhere. Water and food bowls take up part of the kitchen floor. Toys are scattered everywhere. It's difficult to create a sophisticated...

SkyMall Monday: Food Pillows

SkyMall Monday: Food Pillows Some decisions are easy because you simply don't have a choice. The decision is made for you when there's only one option. Others force you to pick between two worthy candidates (think ice cream or cookies for dessert). Things get tricky when you encounter more than two...

SkyMall Monday: Rechargeable Heated Slippers

What do you wear to stay warm? A hat? Some mittens? Perhaps a pair of boots? You're a fool. When temperatures plunge below freezing, you can't rely on down and wool to keep you from dying of hypothermia. And body heat alone won't suffice when you're lost in the...

SkyMall Monday: Beard Cap

SkyMall Monday: Beard Cap I've been a bit cranky in this space recently. I've railed against the Nuddle Blanket and the Ponchillow in the last few weeks. Many of you, I'm sure, have begun to worry that I've lost my zest for SkyMall. Rest assured that I remain optimistic about our favorite in-flight...

SkyMall Monday: Ponchillo, the fleece poncho with a pillow

SkyMall Monday: Ponchillo, the fleece poncho with a pillow It hasn't even been a month since I railed against the Nuddle Blanket and called for everyone to stop purchasing asinine blankets with sleeves. I thought for sure that common sense would spread across the land and that sanity would prevail. Alas, a new threat has presented...

SkyMall Monday: O to Go Portable Wine Glasses

SkyMall Monday: O to Go Portable Wine Glasses Going out for a lavish meal with friends is one of the great pleasures in life. Elegant food, good company and, of course, delicious wine make for a wonderful night out. However, some people take their wine very seriously and anything that takes away from their vino...

SkyMall Monday: Cell Phone Handset Battle

SkyMall Monday: Cell Phone Handset Battle If you've used an iPhone, you know that holding it up to your ear for a long period of time can be uncomfortable. If you need to be on a lengthy call, cradling the iPhone in your hand can get tiresome. Speakerphone is not always a viable option and headphones can be...

SkyMall Monday: Clocks

SkyMall Monday: Clocks We're a culture that's fixated on time. We schedule meetings, play dates for our kids, parties and dates. We're hyper-aware of the time. Here at SkyMall Monday, we have our days scheduled right down to the minute. We keep clocks on the walls, watches on our wrists and...

SkyMall Monday: Nuddle Blanket

SkyMall Monday: Nuddle Blanket We can tolerate a lot here at Skymall Monday. We have a soft spot for Wine Glass Holder Necklaces, adult bibs for sloppily eating in the car and, of course, the Edge Brownie Pan. Sometimes, though, products just rub us the wrong way. Sure, we can usually feign enjoyment for...

SkyMall Monday: Leaf Rake Hands

SkyMall Monday: Leaf Rake Hands As kids, it's natural to imagine ourselves as superheroes. Heck, some of us still fantasize about that as adults. How cool would it be to have super powers and to defend the world against supervillians. Sadly, however, reality is such that this isn't really possible. Even if...
