TROVA Go Safe
Your friends deserve a gift as reliable, sturdy, and strong as they are. The TROVA Go safe is that and much more.

In addition to security, this technological feat has been expertly designed to ensure optimal functionality at home and on the go. Odor concealment protects your privacy, regardless of what might lie within; sleek, thin design supports portability wherever you need to go. Clunky safes are impractical and far from foolproof, now is the time to invest in your loved one’s security with the smart storage device.

A good friend fits your life like a jigsaw. However, a bond as unique as yours can’t truly be captured in the standard, dated form of the classic jigsaw puzzle: instead, up the complexity and ultimately, the reward, with the intricate mind-bending puzzle.

Ranging from a mere 50-piece puzzle (medium) to a daunting 200-piece set (Diabolical), they are designed to accommodate every level of puzzler. Gift your friends a puzzle more challenging than any other, and take solace in the frustration and the pride as they slowly work their way through each winding piece.

When your friends wrap their arms around their new bedtime companion, they’re sure to admire Ted’s tall 24-inch frame and soft, plush fur. Hopefully, they can “bear” his blunt personality as well…
