15.0% Ice Cream Spoon

15.0% Ice Cream Spoon
Before you roll your eyes at a $45 spoon, you need to know this is a very special spoon, for ice cream. It uses your body heat to cut through your frozen favorite flavor, which makes your "scooping experience" effortless. The solid aluminum spoon has a thermal conductivity of 237 W/mK (watts per meter kelvin), so you'll be slicing through your mint chocolate chip/vanilla/rocky road with ease, like a ice-cream-eating...Read more

RBT Barware

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,...Read more

The Natural Balance, Self-Watering Flowerpot

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...Read more

G-RO Carry-On Bag

G-RO Carry-On Bag
Need new luggage for your holiday travels? Maybe something that can tackle rough roads and cracked sidewalks in all sorts of weather? Take a look at the G-Ro Carry-On Bag's all-terrain wheels. They're built to handle any terrain, and because of their larger diameter, the load is closer to its center of gravity. That means the bag balances better and feels lighter as you pull it around all those future,...Read more

Pebble Cheese Board and Accessories

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...Read more

Lego Architecture

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...Read more

Stuart & Lau Portfolio Case

Stuart & Lau Portfolio Case
Another laptop sleeve? You may be sort of sick of seeing leather sleeves, but I can't help but point out how sophisticated an attache can be compared to a ragged-y old backpack or beat-up bag. It fits 13" devices, and each one is handcrafted in New York City. Perhaps it could be a nice gift for someone who likes nice things? Dimensions: 14.5” x 10.25” - Swiss made Riri No....Read more
