Get NPR-Geared Up

NPR just directed our attention to their gift shop, where “For those seeking unique gifts this holiday season, look no further than the NPR Shop ( The NPR Shop offers several fun items for everyone on the list, including best sellers: Hanukkah Lights: Stories of the Season book and CD with introduction by NPR’s Susan Stamberg; Driveway Moments for Dads CD, and several new items, including the NPR 2007 Wall Calendar, Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me! 2007 Page-A-Day Calendar, and An NPR Jazz Christmas with Marian McPartland and Friends III.”

There: Now you know exactly what to get that geek in your family who has always been so hard to shop for.

Thankfully, however, NPR isn’t just interested in selling merchandise to the geeks. They also want those rugged trekkers and hikers and mountain climbers, too.

So if you’re stuck in the woods without electricity and you just gots to get your Carl Kasell fix, look no further:


Or do you think that your L.L. Bean gear just isn’t bad-ass enough? Are you looking for a Nalgene bottle that has more cred on the mountain?


Or perhaps you want a water bottle than can endure the rough-n-tumble Everest ascent?
