Elemental's Eccentric Innovations

sun jar!

You’ve hit that inevitable recipient on your gift list: the person who has everything. Filled with whimsical items from the world’s top designers, SoBe’s Elemental shop is your best bet.

Sun Jar, $50
The conservative boyfriend who loves to remind you to save energy will appreciate a sun jar. Simply place it outside to collect sunlight and wait until nightfall to unleash the glow.

Fire Bucket Ashtray, $25
Inconsiderate smoking roommate? Nip it in the butt with a fun steel container, complete with sand and capital letters that read “fire” on the outside.

Das (Kleine) Kapital Money Bank, $28
Your younger brother was always good about saving dough but never good about hiding it from you. Gift him a three-digit-combination safe disguised as a Karl Marx tome — definitely the last place you’d look.

Samurai Umbrella, $38
A nifty, samurai sword-shaped umbrella will protect your neurotic mother-in-law from rain — and those “dangerous” Miami people.

Rubber Bowling Bag, $225
For the ecochick on your list, wrap up a handbag made entirely from the inner tubes of discarded tires. Rumor has it the tote will take more than 500 years to decompose. (Talk about a good warranty!)
