Innovative gift ideas pop out from the pages of any L.L. Bean catalog. The summer 2012 catalog is no exception. Here are five gifts to remember for your friends, family and even one for your favorite dog.
Shoes for men and women both. They are made with "quick-drying synthetic-leather upper(s)." Meanwhile, "soft, breathable mesh" helps keep your footsies cool on hot, summer days. Their unique colors include "Black" -- OK, not that unique -- "Frosty Lime", "Bright Navy" and "Silver Birch."
These authentic-looking alarm clocks come in the colors of Vintage Green, Ivory, Soft Blue and one style that features a plated-nickel body. These clocks feature an "ascending three-level alarm with volume options and a snooze function." Ring-a-ding-ding. Time to get up!
Womens summer clothing is not complete without a tote bag for the beach or the municipal swimming pool. In this interactive world we live in, L.L. Bean gives you the opportunity to go online and mix and match colors for your personalized tote. Just visit llbean.com/custom to watch the video.
With sport sneakers and tote bag in tow, all you need is a distinctive towel. These thick, Egyptian-cotton towels "now resist the bleached-out stains caused by benzoyl peroxide." They come in too many delightful colors to list here, but make a point of checking out the "Atlantic Blue Stripe."
Need a special gift to help your pooch get through the dog days of summer? Why not personalize
your pet's information on a nylon collar and leash? The collar-leash combo comes in four sizes and in six colors -- red, blue lagoon, sunset orange, palm green, pink flamingo and blue. The information can be embroidered in black, white or gold thread.
Consider a summer gift basket. The customized tote can double as a gift basket for including a variety of gift items from the L.L. Bean Summer 2012 catalog. And now most orders are shipped free of charge. For more information go to llbean.com or call 800-221-4221. The author is not an employee of L.L. Bean.
