Secret Santa List: Clever Gift For The iPod Owner At The Office

Are you Secret Santa for a co-worker using an iPod? Ever see them wearing a headset listening to their fav tunes at work? Now, watch closely when your giftee finishes with the headset. They carefully (or haphazardly) place (or stuff) it into a desk drawer, briefcase, coat or pants pocket, purse, or backpack. Then next morning, again watch closely as they retrieve the headset and proceed to put it on and use it. Almost invariably it is full of twists and knots that take an annoying few minutes to untangle.
Once they have fussed with it enough to get it on their head and start the daily routine; again watch closely as they mosey around the office with headset wires billowing behind them. Either get out of the way or move your stuff out of the way. They can become the workplace irritant. And, when more than one headsetter is walking around the same area, it's an accident waiting to happen.
A very clever headset accessory is on the market to correct these messy cords and flailing wires. The Earbud Yo-Yo, an ingenious little iPod accessory, keeps headset wires knot-free and tangle free, locks down flying and flailing earbud wires, stopping them from getting caught on objects along the way. www.earbudyoyo.com
