These pretty rocks are really soap—maybe this is the oldest trick in the book, but it’s new to me—and I’m thinking of getting a few for my mom, because she digs that sort of thing.
I don’t think this is necessarily a good thing, but I don’t like most games: not poker, not chess, and especially not Scrabble, basically any game that has even the smallest component of math in it (yes, I feel that Scrabble is secretly math, and yes, I know that sounds unhinged). But I do like this fun, star-embossed domino set.
Just the most gorgeous, streamlined bottle opener, from Georg Jensen. I don’t think my apartment is nice enough for this, but perhaps you know somebody it’d work for.
A handy lighter holder/keychain in one, for your favorite occasional pothead.
From Diptique, a car diffuser for keeping things fragrant while motoring. (Do any of you recall over the summer when I wrote about this Diptique Oval and said I wanted to put in in my rental car, and a bunch of you politely pointed out in the comments that that product was wax and would likely melt? Well, this is like they made the product I was dreaming of!)
A collapsible water bottle may also be the oldest trick in the book, but this is pretty nifty-looking, and is the type of thing I should carry to yoga (when I go) instead of (shame!) buying a bottle of water when I get there.
