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.

Kangaroo Light

Uh, who doesn’t want a flexible, portable, interactive light? Because you might want to check out the Kangaroo Light before professing that your lighting needs are fulfilled. Control it wirelessly with your device via the app, and play around with moods and sound sensitivities and light alarms. Pretty fun, right? It could be a good nightlight for little ones, or even soft lighting for outdoor activities like camping.

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.

Utility Mirror Pocket by Good Thing

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. Alternatively, you could just believe me when I sincerely say you’re perfect just the way you are.

Jeeves Valet

I’m sure we could play a quick guessing game as to what the above item might be, but let’s jump to its purpose: it’s a valet. A clothes valet, in case you are unaware, is usually a waist-high wooden stand of questionable aesthetic value that provides a hanging spot for oft-worn items that are wrinkle prone, like a favorite suit jacket.

Half Cube Vinyl Rack

Is this a decent stand for your vinyls or what? It’s not the fanciest, but it sure does look cool, and at $170 it’s not too bad of a price for keeping your favorites close by. I know, I know, you’re hesitant to purchase from the retailer as you’re not a tween, but you’ve got to keep your records organized somehow, and like I said, it’s a decent stand. You could even keep a few larger art books in it perhaps?

Cymbal Pendant

Well, what do we have here? It’s a very simple pendant that uses the light bulb as support for the shades. Aluminum disks diffract the light and trick your eye with reflections of its environment. Does it remind you a little of the Grain Pendant by Brendan Ravenhill? It’s the same sort of idea, and a little more affordable at that.

Litho Hammocks

American flags and hammocks go together like peanut butter and jelly as far as I’m concerned. So, when an American flag hammock has an easy-to-setup strap system that allows for hanging in less than 30 seconds, I’m going to sit up and pay attention.

Litho Hammocks utilize Cam Buckles and two 11 ft. straps to make installation a breeze. The extra long straps allow you to put the hammock almost anywhere. No tree damage either, as the webbing won’t cut into bark like other ropes. Do you like your own existing hammock, but it could be easier to set up? Not to worry, there’s the option for a simple conversion kit as well.

Pepe Marble Table Mirror

Does your mirror frame your face as it should? Because this Pepe Marble Table Mirror by Studiopepe will certainly elevate your daily visage to a sophisticated level. Maybe you’re skeptical, but how in the world could you look bad in this marble and brass table mirror? I just don’t think it’s possible. Perfect for applying makeup (or for inspecting your pores and nose hair, as we all do from time to time).

Archetype Magnetic Building Blocks

Magnetic building blocks, anyone? Pretend you’re an architect with very colorful aspirations as you play with these magnetic cardboard pieces. Place them on the fridge or on any other magnetic surface to remind your brain to take a quick break. Who knows, maybe rearranging the pieces into odd shapes and patterns will inspire you to think differently. Oh, and do I need to point out this could be a fun-yet-simple gift idea?
