Pick your notebook, upload your artwork (or choose from one of 10 artist designs), and you're done — unless you want custom spine engraving, as well. The hipster's favorite accessory just got a little cooler.

For a totally NSFW new year, check out the Nerdcore 2008 Calendar ($25). While last year's calendar was gamer themed (mmm... PowerGlove), the 2008 version focuses on superheroes and villains. Only don't expect to see some buff dude with a dumb "S" on his chest — expect lots of sexy bare chests.
We'll readily admit that USPS stamps aren't the sexiest items we could write about. Then again, when they feature the classic designs of Charles & Ray Eames, there are few stamps that can compare. The USPS Charles & Ray Eames Postage Stamp Collection ($7 a sheet) is a set of 16 stamps featuring some of the Eames' most popular designs. Honored in the collection are the Eames Lounge Chair, Eames Molded Plywood Chair, and the Eames Hang-It-All. A sure-fire way to make snail-mail suck a little less.
