Benjamin Brush

Do you have trouble getting your kids to brush their teeth? Or do you not brush your teeth long enough? The Benjamin Brush might fix that little problem, as it’s the first electric toothbrush with an integrated speaker and music store. Choose a song, and it’ll play for two minutes- the recommended amount of time to get those teeth clean. The Benjamin also features Sonic Vibe Technology and fun silicone bristles that won’t damage your gums or tooth enamel.

Press Iced Tea Bottle

Iced tea, anyone? Instead of steeping, straining, and then chilling, this Pressed Iced Tea Bottle gives you a “brew-and-go” experience. Add hot water to your tea in the outer chamber, let it steep, then press the ice-filled inner chamber down. Add the lid and you’re ready to go, with brewed iced tea in hand. Pretty handy if you’re very fond of your iced tea, huh?

Aquabot

How often are you out at the beach, campsite, or park and wish you had a garden hose to wash off dirt and grime? This is exactly where the Aquabot by Lunatec comes into play: it transforms your regular water bottle into a pressurized device, giving you the function of a portable hose/faucet/fountain/mister so you can use water efficiently. You might remember when it was a Kickstarter project, but it’s now available directly from Lunatec.

que Collapsible Travel Bottle

Remember this guy? The que Bottle has a smart spiral design that shrinks into half of its size for easy transport. It’s made of BPA-free food-grade silicone (completely plastic-free) that keeps it lightweight, dishwasher safe, and taste and odor free. It’s now available directly from the makers (instead of Kickstarter).

Suga Wetsuits Yoga Mat

What happens to old, worn wetsuits? Well, they usually end up in landfills, but if they’re lucky, they end up becoming a Suga Yoga Mat. Suga recycles old wetsuits into a soft, cushiony, surface for your yoga practice. Eventually, when it’s time for retirement (the mat, not you), it can be recycled. And, for $20 more, Suga’s C2G Mat offers you a replacement when your mat wears out- for life.

Nomu Vacuum Flask

All flasks are not equal, as you may be aware. Some leak, some do not keep hot beverages hot, some look atrocious… you know the story. The Nomu* Vacuum Flask is in the top tier of your available options, as it is a thermo insulated double walled flask perfect for either hot or cold drinks. Flavor and aroma are preserved, so you’ll get the full enjoyment of your coffee/tea/rocket fuel hours after you first pour it in.

MagLock Sunglasses

Oh, this is such a smart idea, and I hope it starts a trend. The MagLock Sunglasses have magnets embedded into their frame so that they ‘clip’ onto your shirt instead of falling off. No more worrying about losing your shades! No more scratched lenses! Wonderful, right? The magnets also mean you can attach the frames to any magnetic surface (even a thumbtack). Here’s hoping they expand the frame selection soon, but for now there’s two safe styles to pick from. There’s also a fun Origami hard case to store your glasses ($14).

Flavour It Glass Water Bottle

Like a bit of lemon or mint in your water glass? Or perhaps a hint of strawberry? Now you can take your fanciness on the road with this glass bottle, thus reducing your own plastic bottle usage as well as that snobbery that crops up whenever you’re faced with plain tap water. I’m sure you’ll get creative with infusions, as it’d be hard not to try all sorts of fruits and flavors while you stay hydrated.

Alter Ego Frio

Clean water can be hard to come by in many parts of the world and, unfortunately, also in some places here in the United States. The Alter Ego Frio has filtration technology that provides the greatest reduction per contaminant. What does that mean? Well, it removes everything that’s harmful in your H2O so you only taste clean, contaminant-free water. That could be especially handy on camping trips, and maybe even on your daily commute.

FIXR Pocket Tool

The MacGyvers among us won’t be caught without a decent EDC kit, because you just never know when you may need more than a paperclip. The FIXR may not be the most streamlined, but when you’re in a jam, you’ll at least have a hell of a lot of tools to get you out of trouble. It packs 20 tools into one easy-to-hold and easy-to-attach little gadget.

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer

We can all agree that $400 is a lot of money to spend on a hair dryer. Not everyone is going to plonk down four big ones just for shinier, smoother hair that dries in half the time. Actually, if you have short hair, there’s really no reason to read any further. However, if you’ve got longer hair, well, here’s a personal review.

Enamel Steel Keychain

Need some sturdy tags to make sure you keep your home, work, camp, and ‘play’ keys separate? Take a look at Best Made Co.’s enamel steel tags. They’ll take a beating, as they’re made on World War Two-era machinery, just like the other enamelware offered from the retailer. Buy the set of four or choose just one.

Contour Key Rings, Black

Remember the brass Contour Key Rings with their bell, drop, hoop, and bend shapes? Now they’re available in black, and you can get the whole bundle ($66) with the intention of organizing all your keys. Each Key Ring closes with a screw clasp, which makes adding and removing keys super easy.

Vapur Anti-Bottle

No more whining about carrying around a big, clunky water bottle, because you could have a Vapur Anti-Bottle. It’s freezable, attachable, and sustainable. It lays completely flat when empty, and you can fold it up for storage. I don’t know about you, but I think it looks a lot better than any plastic bottle out there. Need filtration? Try the MicroFilter Bottle Set. Need something for your magic juice? There’s a Wine Carrier and Flask as well.

Wilson Keyring, Carbon Black

Would you like a minimal keyring with a nitrocarburized coating? I know I would, especially when it costs $10. You may have already seen the brass version (or the brass with enamel stripe), but the black is a little more fetching in my humble opinion. It’s a pre-order, FYI, so best snap a couple up now if you’re thinking about gifts for friends.
