GoodLife Key Tags

Maybe you’re perfect, but I know I’m not the only one that needs a little reminding every now and again to be a better person. And, hey, why not have a key tag that gives you some inspiration to do just that? They’re sort of perfect, in their old-timey, hotel-key tag way. Could be a good way to keep track of extra key copies clanking around perhaps?

LifeStraw Portable Water Filter

If you spend any time in the wilderness, you’d do well to add one of these to your emergency kit. It’s a water purifying straw that removes “99.9999% of waterborne bacteria and 99.9% of parasites without any use of chemicals.” That’ll be a lifesaver if you’re ever lost or- doomsday scenario- if some disaster strikes and makes the regular water supply unsafe to drink. Better to be prepared, right?

There’s several bright(er) colors to choose from if black is too somber for your wardrobe.

In any case, this Beta Key Ring has an inkless pen attached, meaning its owner will never be without a writing tool. The pen has a solid metal alloy ‘nib’ that leaves a pencil-like mark on paper.

Freekey

You and I both know what a hassle it is to get keys on and off a regular keyring. You can use a staple remover to aid the process or you could change your keyring to a Freekey. It has a patented wave that allows the end to open, making adding or removing keys a snap. There’s also a Freekey System that comes with additional small rings for grouping your keys together.

Zwilling J.A. Henckels Fingernail Clipper

What makes a good fingernail clipper? A sharp cutting edge, for sure, as well as slight curvature to follow your nail’s natural growth. What usually irks you out about a fingernail clipper? The leftover clippings, of course. This fingernail clipper has a built in nail catching component that corrals clippings: you slide or lift the holder off to empty. And, yes, there’s a Toenail Clipper as well.

If these strike your fancy, you might check out Zwilling’s collection of manicure tools- there’s quite the assortment.

Too beautiful to hide hot water bottle

Yup, that’s right, it’s a hot water bottle. The outer lining is covered in soft flocking, which makes it your best huggable friend when you’re feeling under the weather. However, such stylish comfort isn’t cheap; you’ll be parting with $90 for this hot water bottle.

Cuppow Mason Jar Lid

Yeah I know, canning jars are extremely trendy right now, even more than the actual canning process. I’m drinking out of one in a coffee shop at this exact moment. But beyond fashion, they are simple and robust in their design, perfect for drinking glasses. However, the open top proves to be unwieldy when on-the-go. Cue the Cuppow, a plastic drinking lid designed to convert any mason jar into a spill-proof cup. The Cuppow gets bonus points for being manufactured in the United States, and at only $8, is quite affordable.

Help Remedies

Help® has added a couple of new products to their online store. If you’re not familiar with the company, let’s just say this: their solutions are made with a single active ingredient, the drugs are not dyed or coated, and each drug is labeled clearly for the specific symtom so everyone understands exactly what they are taking and why. Sounds pretty simple, doesn’t it? And definitely in stark contrast to the medicine aisles of your local pharmacy, which is exactly the point.

Stanley Adventure Multi Use Bottle

The Stanley Adventure Multi Use Bottle is your answer for a stainless steel travel bottle that has a bit more design consideration and function. It features a twist off body that converts to a cup, volume markings, as well as a regular quick drinking spout. Also, I imagine twisting it apart makes it that much easier to clean compared to the traditional steel/aluminum bottles with narrow necks, which require a cleansing tablet to thoroughly sanitize. Holds 32 oz and is dishwasher safe.
