A stylish aluminum screen cover that feels great and looks even better is designed to complement the iPad. In fact, it fits the tablet so seamlessly that you can hardly tell them apart. Bonus: It doubles as magnetically attached cover. Main advantage?

For the Gymgoer

The Stick

Affectionately called "The Toothbrush for Muscles," The Stick is actually a system of handheld (and blessedly low-tech) hard plastic rods with hand grips and therapeutic spindles that provide deep-tissue warm-ups and disperse the effects of lactic acid build-up following a workout. Highly reviewed by hundreds of satisfied customers on Amazon, The Stick systems come in a variety of weights and lengths, each targeted for different body types, heights and athletic endeavors. The Stick will keep your body chiseled, hard, injury free.

Price $30-$50, depending on size; Stick Pro Systems starting at $119
