Stendig Calendar 2017

Patina Bottle Opener

A beautiful bottle opener? In this case, it’s true. Cofield’s bottle openers are solid brass with three available patina finishes. A polished edge sets off the patina nicely, and somewhat gives an illusion of inset stone. Now, the hard part will be deciding which patina you prefer- do you like the Polychrome, Turquoise, or Black best? Be sure to take a look at Cofield’s Brass Clocks too, which have the same patina treatment.

Round Silicone Lids

These silicone lids will make leftovers a snap. Just stick them on any sheet, pan, or bowl, and you’re done- no separate container necessary. That’s music to anyone’s ears, but especially to those of us with a slight case of lazybones around the holidays. They also keep food hot (a small one for your coffee, perhaps?), or can stand in as the top of a saucepan. Get them for yourself, or as a ‘happy holidays’ sort of host/hostess gift. Also available in a rectangular shape.

SuperYR Calendar by Supergraph

However will you keep track of your daily habits in the new year? Well, get this big SuperYR Calendar by Supergraph, as then you’d be able to cross off each and every day that you complete your task. Seeing a visual of your impressive progress will keep you on track and focused… that’s the plan, anyways. It can be used every year thanks to the UV laminated surface, and you can always flip it to the other side for a horizontal/vertical change. It’s magnetic too, so use a few magnets to pin notes and miscellany, if you so desire. Fun fact: the calendar was inspired by Jerry Seinfeld’s motivational technique.

It uses your body heat to cut through your frozen favorite flavor, which makes your “scooping experience” effortless. The solid aluminum spoon has a thermal conductivity of 237 W/mK (watts per meter kelvin), so you’ll be slicing through your mint chocolate chip/vanilla/rocky road with ease, like a ice-cream-eating ninja.

The Natural Balance, Self-Watering Flowerpot

This cute little flowerpot hides a trick up its sleeve, as it has a hidden reservoir that keeps the soil of the plant hydrated. A water-permeable, earthenware partition lets water soak through gradually, giving your plant just enough water right when it needs it. When the pot needs more water, it will tip to its side, making it very obvious you need to grab the watering can. Only when you fill the reservoir back up will the pot return to its normal, upright position. Interested? Back the project over at Kickstarter.

Pebble Cheese Board and Accessories

If you go completley bonkers over cheese, you’ll look way less crazy if you eat your fromage (said with a French accent) on something as sleek as the Pebble Cheese Board. Bonus sophistication points if you use the accompanying accessories to shovel that precious Gouda and Gruyère into that mouth of yours, as the curves on the black cutting utensils are elegant and the silicone handles ensure a good grip and safe delivery. And, yes, of course, any (or all) of the pieces could be a good gift for your favorite turophile as well. Be sure to check out the Craft Salt and Pepper Cellars and Shakers by Simon Legald as well.

Crank Brothers Multi 19 Tool

Multi-tools are must-haves, don’t you think? Whether you keep one on you, in your car, or on your bicycle, you’re prepared for almost anything with a multi-tool. They’re way easier than carrying around than a toolbox, that’s for sure. The Crank Brothers Multi 19 Tool features side grips for a secure handhold and includes a spoke wrench, a chain tool, hex wrenches, open wrench, screwdrivers, and torx. And, yes, I had to look up torx. Also, if you are (or know) a cyclist, do check out the Crane E-Ne Bell in black, also available from the same retailer.
