58 Unexpected Hammacher Schlemmer Features

From Sweat-Inducing Shorts to Pet Door Blockers

— October 6, 2011 — Unique
I think it's safe to say that you'll probably see some things you never knew existed when you check out all of these unexpected Hammacher Schlemmer features. Hammacher Schlemmer is a mail-order and online retailer that for 163 years has offered some of the craziest and most original gifts.

The best part of all of these unexpected Hammacher Schlemmer features is that you'll find a bunch of awesome items that you would have never known about otherwise. You'd be hard-pressed to find another online retailer where you can buy both a remote controlled bald eagle and an iPhone printer. Christmas is closer than you think, and original gifts such as a Christmas utility vest are always in high demand.
