ACCESSORIES

Standing Coffee Measure Spoon

Is $40 too much for a coffee measure spoon? Well, do you drink coffee everyday, or often enough to appreciate that this spoon stands up on its own, even full of coffee beans? Designed by Masaharu Asano, this spoon is easy to grab and comfortable to hold. Its curves and angled tilt are all intended to improve the coffee-making process.

The Illuminated Bookmark

Okay, now, no need to worry about what to get me for a gift- one of these Illuminated Bookmarks will do just fine. It’s a bookmark printed on a special film with ink that transmits electricity. See the circuit the ink creates? Add a lithium coin battery between the positive and negative ends and you’ve got an LED light. Pretty fun, huh? It’s sure to please any reader that is fond of technology.

Hand-Painted Abstract Cutting Boards

Okay, so this isn’t going to appeal to everyone, but hand-painted cutting boards! With abstract shapes! Is that not extremely fun to see in the realm of kitchen tools? They’ve got a good safe mineral oil finish, though you’ll still want to take care and treat these boards as what they are: three quarters utilitarian kitchen staple and one quarter piece of art.

Iso Organizer L

Well, hello there. The Iso Organizer comes in a larger, longer profile, which is pretty perfect for organizing all sorts of papers, mail, and books. It’s made of heavy gauge cold rolled steel (6 lbs.) with a cork underside, so it’ll stay put without scratching the surface underneath. I have the original size (in blue) on my desk and I’m now trying to think if I need this larger version somewhere else. Hmm.

By now, you’ve probably accepted that 2018 is only a couple of months away, so it’s time to get ahead of the game by sorting out your calendar options. This minimal wall calendar has enough room to make all sorts of notes if you so wish, and once you hang it on the wall, your whole month will be laid out before you to organize to your heart’s content. Note how the weekend dates are shifted to the side for easy reference, that’ll keep your work week and time off visually separated.

Pidestall Planters

Normally planters this nice would have a cringe-inducing price tag, but the Pidestall Planters seem completely affordable when you spend a little time appreciating their bent metal legs and clean, cylindrical forms. Perfect for indoor or outdoor use, you have your pick of two sizes- Blue/short and Red/tall. It’s time to bring some plants indoors anyways, so you’ve got a reason to add one (or two) of them to your favorite room in the house.

Euclid Measuring Cup

Yes, you saw this Euclid Measuring Cup back in a previous link pack, and now you get to see it again. What’s so special about it? Well, take a look at its funny shape and you’ll see how it’s tapered towards its bottom, and that mathematically optimal design allows for more precise measurements. Small measurements will have the same accuracy as larger ones, which is important for anyone that wants to get recipes just right.

Buckle Jars

Cast iron bowl, anyone? The little looped handle makes it feel fun, while the heftiness will make sure it stays put. It could live in the kitchen as a salt cellar, in the office for paperclips (or thumb drives?), or even in the bedroom or bathroom for smaller accessories and jewelry.

Flexible Powerstrip

I think this power strip is almost identical to the JolyJoy Flexible Power Strip on Amazon, except for this version looks like it has one less regular outlet and one more USB port. The flexible joints allow all your bulky power adapters to fit alongside each other on one strip; simply bend it back and forth to accommodate your needs.

Arid Umbrella Stand

This Arid Umbrella Stand uses the inherent properties of terracotta clay to wick away moisture. Smart, right? That’ll dry your umbrella a little faster than an ordinary stand. Also, raise your hand if you’ll be tempted to use it as a planter (*raised hand*).
