Magnetic Dustpan and Brush Set

Tidying up will become much easier when you pick up this Magnetic Dustpan and Brush Set by Bürstenhaus Redecker. Not only does it have a horsehair brush and an oiled beech handle, which will feel right at home in your hand, but embedded magnets let the brush snap back in place on the dustpan once you’re done. Be sure to take a look at the Shoe Cleaning Hedgehog too- it’s pretty cute.

2017 Sunlight Calendar

Another calendar for your consideration… this one subtly shifts tones from one month to the next, signaling seasonal changes with a “haze of hues.” Pretty, right? Inspired by the sun’s height and intensity, the year is laid out with intuitive color. Don’t worry, the cold winter months are pretty too, perhaps sometimes in direct contradiction with what you may feel when you step outdoors.

This storage box is pretty neat. Its three drawers can be stacked or separated, or, to see everything, just slide them all out in a stepped arrangement.

Stendig Calendar 2017

Need a large wall calendar to plan out 2017? The Stendig is always a good choice, as it
has twelve large tear-off sheets to show the months in graphic black and white. And, as a quick quiz, do you know what year Massimo Vignelli designed this calendar? Was it a) 1961, b) 1966, c) 1971, or d) 1976 ?

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.

RBT Barware

Hmm, this set of barware from RBT is sure worth a second glance. Take a look at the collection. There’s an aerator with faceted acrylic top, a decanter made of borosilicate glass, a tabletop corkscrew (for the uncoordinated-yet-stylish amongst us?), a metal Wing Corkscrew, and more. All feature the signature black and gold color scheme, which keeps your bar area looking sharp. You’ll look like you know what you’re doing, even when you don’t.

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.

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.

Lego Architecture

The phrase ‘fun for the whole family!’ keeps running through my head when I look through the whole of Lego Architecture. And, in fact, building any of the well known structures and monuments will be fun for your whole family, as everyone can participate. Some of my favorites are harder to find and a bit more expensive (Villa Savoye, Farnsworth House, etc.), but look around and see if there’s one or two that might scratch your Lego itch. They may even be collectible further in the future, so, it’s an investment, really, right?

Duo Coffee Steeper

More coffee paraphernalia for your consideration… The Duo Coffee Steeper features two chambers to produce the the richness of immersion brewing but with a cleaner taste. Your hot water and coffee steeps in the upper chamber, then once your brew reaches the right strength, you twist the silicone center to let it flow through 2 stainless steel filters into the lower carafe. Twist it again and you’ve locked the chamber for pouring from the spout. Pretty easy, and relatively compact- it may even be a good option to bring with you on your travels, if you’re picky about your coffee.
