While 2008 may still be a couple of months off, you can get your planning started early with the Architecture 2008 Wall Calendar ($14). The 12" square calendar offers color photos of fantastic architecture from around the world, and also features the phases of the moon in its grid.
If you're sick of seeing Moleskines come out of everybody's pocket, feast your eyes on the rugged-looking Field Notes Memo Books ($10/3-pack). These soft-covered notebooks are filled with 48 pages of crisp graph paper, perfect for your to-do list or any of the "Practical Applications" suggested inside the back cover — such as Treasure Maps, Gambling Debts, and Half-Ass Calculations. The made-in-the-USA notebooks are the perfect fit for your back pocket, while the brown cover and old-school Futura type will make you look more like an adventurer than a follower.
Many of us forget to brush twice a day, most of us don't brush for the full two minutes and we all let our toothbrushes get frayed and ineffective. Quip is a simplified Electric Toothbrush and brush-head subscription service designed to break these bad habits. The slimmest electric toothbrush on the market, quip features a sleek aluminum handle — available in silver, slate, copper and gold — and convenient mirror mount that doubles as a travel cover. The brush's vibrating bristles pulse at timed intervals to guide an effective 2-minute cleaning, and to ensure you actually replace your brush on time, you'll get a new brush-head and toothpaste refill in the mail every three months from $5.

With more uses than we can possibly list here, Moo MiniCards ($20/100) are the coolest paper-based product since toilet paper... or something. The roughly 1.1 x 2.75-inch cards feature any image you want on one side — from your computer, flickr or one of Moo's designs — and text on the other side, like your name, phone number or a slick message — literally, whatever you want. For more ideas, check out the MiniCards flickr pool.
