Lumio lamp, $125
For those who like their lights portable and unusual, there’s the Lumio, a lamp that’s cleverly disguised as a book. Not only can it travel incognito until it’s needed, but it can transform itself into multiple shapes (all about the same book-shaped theme though) and will give about eight hours of light on a full charge. Magnets built into the cover mean you can mount it on a metal surface, and the light turns on and off as soon as you open or close the cover. It also comes bound in a nice wooden cover.
