House full of people? No problem with the aerobed Luxury Collection Raised Pillowtop Airbed on hand. Customize firmness or softness with the aeroBed that features Smart Pump Technology that automatically shuts off when the bed is fully inflated. In twin, full and queen sizes, it rolls up to store compactly in the carry bag that’s included.

Pamper them through the night on buttery-soft Jennifer Adams Eternally Soft microfiber sheets. The wrinkle-free and eco-friendly designer bedding by Jennifer Adams Home — found in exclusive resorts, spas and hotels worldwide — feels softer than 600-count cotton. Coordinating products include Eternal Duvet Cover, blankets, pillow and mattress protectors and more.
Sweet dreams are in store for the little sleeper, too, with bedding from CoCaLo. The Sugar Plum collection is an adorable three-piece full set that includes quilt and pillow shams fit for a growing princess.

Can’t afford to let dull blades slow down dinner? Sharpness is no issue with the Ginsu Chikara Series, a 12-piece cutlery set forged from Japanese stainless steel, and housed in a bamboo storage block. It includes an 8” chef knife, four 5” steak knives, sharpening rod, kitchen shears, a 3.5” paring knife and more.

A headboard can be a quick, creative and attractive way to give your bed and room a fresh look. Transform your bedroom into a cozy retreat with help from Coaster Company of America:

Headboard (300357Q) of durable leather in deep brown color; caramel accents at the seams make for a more textured aged look. A matching storage bench is available. Entertainment center (201316) — part of the Robin collection, it’s crafted from solid hardwoods with veneers and is finished in a deep rich espresso. And, for a good night’s sleep, consider the Pillowtop Innerspring Mattress (1092F).

Whether for kitchen or in a guest bedroom, the 26-inch Haier L26B1120 LCD flat screen makes a good fit. Haier offers the official HDTV of the NBA.

Just need a quick cup of java, tea or cocoa as you’re rushing out to start the day? Mr. Coffee Single Serve serves up a quick brew utilizing K-Cup portion packs. The one-cup, one-stop brewing system features auto shut-off and removable drip tray for easy clean-up. It comes with a variety pack of five K-Cups.
