Here’s a roundup of interesting items for men this spring, which range from tech gear and desk accessories to golf socks and hats that you’ll tip with style:

A visit to the Guggenheim Museum’s gift shop will confirm the obvious: it’s not just children who love BuckyBalls. Adults love them, too. They’re a stylish desktop accessory, and provide hands-on diversion when brainstorming complex mega-deals to seal your future at The Firm. Each Buckyball has two magnetic poles – one side repels and the other attracts. They can be shaped into myriad forms, all of which can be viewed on a scintillating video at http://www.GetBuckyballs.com.

Here’s a You Tube link that will demonstrate the awesomeness of Buckyballs:

Laser Pegs are another all-age delight because you shape them, they light up, and then you’re awed by your illuminated masterpiece. Who needs a lamp at night when you have a unique Laser Peg creation? These national award-winning construction sets can be lit or turned off, and come in a variety of different construction kits. Check out the different models at http://www.laserpegs.com and make your own conversation piece.

If spring weather makes you want to yell “Fore!” then Kentwool performance socks will definitely interest you. In fact, if you simply want a high-quality, well-crafted, uber-comfortable sock, then peruse the selection at http://www.Kentwell.com/shop. Crafted in Greenville, SC, these spring socks come in both men’s and women’s styles and blend natural and high-tech fibers to manage moisture and odor. Heel, toe and bridge support confirms that they’re simply unrivaled.
