Clippa Mini Tools Clip

Okay, seeing as anything decent gadget-wise makes it onto our pages, it would seem silly to eliminate this Clippa purely because it takes the shape of a hair clip I don’t like. Besides, maybe you do like the hair clip I’m referencing, and therefore you love the idea of a clip that incorporates screwdrivers, a ruler, a cutter, a bottle opener, and a 5/16 wrench all in the petite size of 6 x 2.4cm. Choose between the Clippa Blackfin (which has the bottle opener feature), the pink Clippa Lady (not shown), and the original stainless steel Clippa.

Mukou Umbrella Stand

I know, it’s not really the rainy season where most of us live, but it is somewhere in the world, so let’s just say it’s entirely appropriate to feature a very minimal umbrella stand right this very second. It’s a half cylinder, so it will hug the wall and keep your entryway super sleek. Small spaces will love it. No tripping hazard, either, though you might not need that pointed out unless you’re a big klutz. Another plus? A perforated back will reduce dampness.

Tubelor Grande Trash Bin

Why, yes, we have featured the Tubelor Grande Trash Bin before (back in 2013). But the Rosewood version is new, and can we just take a moment to appreciate how pretty it is? A pretty trash can- you certainly don’t see one of those everyday. The design of the bin is made up of two parts: a decorative outer lid and the inner liner which holds the plastic bag. The result is a clean, streamlined look that would fit well within any room.

Mini Cloud Cork Board

Do you remember when the BLTD logo had a cloud? If so, you might understand the soft spot I have for cloud-related merchandise. This set of 4 Mini Cloud Cork Boards would easily fit into a kid’s room, home office, or anywhere that has a casual decor vibe. It’d be a good spot to keep special photos, notes, and other pinnable things.

Naturally Cooling Ceramic Wine Cooler

When you’re drinking rosé or white wine, do you really want to deal with ice and buckets? Nope. Get yourself this Ceramic Wine Cooler from Magisso and then pat yourself on the back for making chilled drinks that much easier. Soak the cooler in cold water for just a few minutes, then let the natural evaporation process keep your bottle perfectly chilled for 2 to 4 hours, no ice necessary. A glazed base prevents water rings. Smart, right? It does the trick; I own one myself and couldn’t be more pleased (unless it somehow opened the bottle of wine for me, of course).

Cube Collection from Tom Dixon

Strategic placement of these office tools will signal to the world that you mean business, as the heavy cube-like tools don’t mess around. They’re functional, of course, but they’re also “stripped of superfluous details.” Pretty serious, huh? But they’re also copper plated, which bounces light around for fun reflections, so let’s say they’re serious and fun.

Lindsay Stead Collection Quilts

Modern interpretations of traditional quilt patterns are just one of those things that hit the perfect note between old and new, though sometimes the colors are a little too bright or the design just a tad too busy. You’ll be happy to know the Collection Quilts by Lindsay Stead are quietly modern and refrain from any garish colors or designs. Each quilt is of heirloom quality, as they are hand quilted by a group of women in rural Ontario. Pick your favorite design knowing it’ll keep you warm on chilly nights while adding a good dose of handmade charm to your home.

Just how are you going to look at that cow lick or bald spot at the back of your head without contorting crazily in the bathroom mirror at work? By having a handy pocket mirror, of course. Good Thing has shrunk down its Utility Mirror to a pocket sized version so that no matter where you are, you can easily and inconspicuously check out any trouble areas.
