Hello Happy Plants
Big Thank You Bag Planter
$65

Handmade, a bit clever, and sure to brighten any room with positive energy, this planter is crafted to look like a "Thank You" shopping bag. Measuring approximately 10 by 6 inches, it comes with an airplant and Hello Happy Flowers even offers a discount on your purchase if you sign a petition to get plastic bags banned in Florida.

Random House
The Girls: a Novel
$17

A beautifully written book, Emma Cline's debut novel "The Girls" explores the secret lives of adolescent girls; the perils of the in-between. Set in the late '60s in Northern California, it's a story not just of young women, but an of era and a Manson-like cult set within. This compelling read balances a scandalous story with fascinating characters and genuine emotion. It's a tale all can devour.

Lazy Oaf
"Not Now" Hoodie
$65

Made for a Monday, Lazy Oaf's new "Not Now" hoodie is technically part of their men's range, but we think its boxy shape (and universal sentiments) means it's really unisex. With 3D embroidery on the front and back ("Lazy" and "Not Now" respectively) this sweater embodies bad moods, but in an almost sweet way. Made from 100% cotton, it's available in small, medium, large and extra large. Price is in British Pounds.

Sabina Gibson
Stegosaurus Stuffed Toy
$13

Designed by Sabina Gibson, this peach-colored Stegosaurus is much smaller, cuter and cuddlier than the real thing. Made for kids aged three and up, the jurassic creature has a wool felt body and polyester filling—so s/he is snuggly. Available on its own, or as a set of four (along with a Tyrannosaurus Rex, Brachiosaurus and Triceratops) this little pal will encourage tots to use their imagination and maybe even learn about the prehistorical world.

Genesis Publications
VOGUE: Voice of a Century
$900

VOGUE's "Voice of a Century" is a 448-page anthology for serious fashion experts and collectors. The leather-bound tome has been made to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the magazine, and includes iconic photographs, illustrations and interviews—from Kate Moss talking about riding an elephant to gloriously illustrated covers from yesteryear. Signed by eight contributors and stamped by Mario Testino, this book tracks not only style and fashion, but trends and history through a very specific and significant lens.

Maison Kitsuné
Lambwool Beanie
$60

As those in the Northern Hemisphere start thinking about sweater weather, long-lost items like scarves and beanies start being remembered. Maison Kitsuné's simple ribbed beanie (available in burgundy or navy) is one way to enjoy winter a little more. Made from 100% lambswool, the beanie is unisex (of course) and very warm. The brand's trademark fox (Kitsuné comes from the Japanese word "kitsune" meaning "fox") is embroidered to the front in the French flag's blue, white and red. Price is in Euros.

Toilet Paper + Daft Punk
Limited Edition Gold Daft Punk Vinyl
$50

Toilet Paper Magazine, Daft Punk and The Vinyl Factory have come together for a highly covetable collectible. Made in an edition of 1000, the French duo's 1995 tracks "Da Funk" and "Teachers" (both from the iconic Homework album) have been rerecorded onto a gold record, embellished with trademark Toilet Paper-style art by Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari. Price is in Euros.

Block Shop
Dovecote Rug
$120

Inspired by the dovecotes of India's Mughal architecture, this geometric rug is one of five just launched from Block Shop. The bold structure of the pattern is offset somewhat by the subtle gray and cream coloration, making it a piece that will standout all while matching almost any style of interior. In fact, the team at Block Shop designed it for their very own cabin in Joshua Tree, a bird-watching haven. Dyed and woven by hand, this piece is made of 100% Indian cotton and available in three different sizes.

The Arrivals
Han Unisex Bomber Jacket
$345

As with so many of The Arrivals' pieces, the unisex Han bomber jacket carries super-functionality. Padded with real European goose down and sporting a wind-protecting zipper placket, it will keep wearers warm in the colder months. The minimal look is jazzed up by our favorite colorway—one the brand calls "Bandaid"—a dusty rose hue that will lighten a gloomy winter day. Also available in black or fir (a rich olive green), the Han jacket is comfy and cozy.

Ten Speed Press
Rad Women Worldwide
$13

Writer Kate Schatz and artist Miriam Klein Stahl (who created the New York Times bestseller "Rad American Women A-Z") have come together again for another feminist-leaning tome: "Rad Women Worldwide: Artists and Athletes, Pirates and Punks, and Other Revolutionaries Who Shaped History." Featuring cut-out portraits and short profiles on everybody from Poly Styrene (lead singer of X-Ray Spex) to Malala Yousafzi and Chimamanda Adichie, the book will inspire and impress readers of all ages, races and genders.

Alfredo Häberli
Alfredo Vase
$185

Designed by Swiss-Argentinian Alfredo Häberli and made from gorgeous green glass specially developed by Georg Jensen and the Glafo Glass Research Institute, the Alfredo Vase is the result of many visionaries coming together. Looking like something from the past and the future at the same time, its curves are exaggerated and delightful. The vessel (available in two very different shapes and sizes) is such a pretty piece, you might not even bother putting flowers in it.

Topo Designs + Woolrich
Cinch Tote
$119

Whether using it for a picnic, weekend away or to lug your groceries around town, Topo Designs and Woolrich's collaboration Cinch Tote is super-functional and its USA woolen fabrics means it's great for transitional seasons. Made in Colorado, the bag is fully lined and features four exterior pockets. Best of all, the Western Print fabric will vary with each bag—so chances are yours will be one of a kind.

Ten Speed Press
You're Saying it Wrong
$12

If you find yourself discussing (or arguing) how to pronounce words like "pho," "niche" or "acai," new book "You're Saying It Wrong: A Pronunciation Guide to the 150 Most Commonly Mispronounced Words and Their Tangled Histories of Misuse" could be a useful book to carry on your person. Not only illuminating the correct pronunciations, the book also explains phrases' and words' origins and common misuses. May you never mispronounce schadenfreude again.

Tetra
Balance Pipe
$65

One of our favorite online destinations for sophisticated tokers, Tetra has just released their first self-branded pipe. Created by NYC-based designer Jamie Wolfond, the blue glass pipe is made from incredibly high-quality borosilicate glass that doesn't conduct heat—meaning the smoke produced is cooler and smoother. Also available in clear, the beautifully designed piece is clever and classy.

Hautlence + Colette
Limited Edition Playground Labyrinth Watch
$9,900

We're already enamored by Hautlence's non-watch watch—a piece that isn't what it first appears. Instead of telling the time, the puzzle-face encourages the wearer to slow down, take some time out and embrace their inner-child. The limited edition version, made in collaboration with Colette, is black and blue (like the Parisian store) but has been produced in a super-exclusive run of just five. Price is in Euros.

Phaidon
The Importants
$50

The tender portraits taken by photographer, casting director and creative director Kevin Amato—for his new book "The Importants"—honor the characters (mostly from the Bronx) he's dedicated to capturing on film. Amato is a pioneer of the now-common concept of street-casting, and the images in the gold hardcover range from the recognizable Luka Sabbat to emerging and unknown names. Essentially though, it's a celebration of diversity and fluidity—from sexuality to gender, appearance and race.

Paola Navone
Black Dots Creamer
$32

Designed by Italian architect Paola Navone and produced by acclaimed porcelain company Reichenbach, this polka-dot creamer—part of a great black dots set—balances whimsy with function. This can be said of both the uncommon silhouette and the playful pattern. Global interests struck the Navone, which she channeled into her progressive, worldly work. The piece is exclusively stocked at the Philip Johnson Glass House design store.

Journeymen
Fragrance No 1 Natural Deodorant
$18

Despite all evidence that aluminum and paraben aren't things that should be applied to the body every single day, most people do default to deodorant sticks featuring these ingredients—because they generally offer the most antiperspirant protection. After extending testing, we can testify that Journeymen's Fragrance No 1 deodorant stick does offer the same antiperspirant protection most require out of a daily deodorant—and the cypress and cedar smoke scent lasts well into the work day. There's an almost warming sensation when applying it. And the aloe vera, witch hazel, organic chamomile and essential oils make the experience altogether delightful.

Bellroy
All-Conditions Phone Pocket
$90

Made to be water-resistant, whether in the leather or woven fabric versions, Bellroy's All-Conditions Phone Pocket is a clever wallet that can house your cards, cash, phone, passport and more. With two interiors pockets, YKK water-resistant zip and microfiber lining, it's a go-anywhere travel wallet that will keep all your valuables protected.

Poketo
Minimal Pencil Pouch
$24

It's that time of year: everybody's heading back to school and work and summer is officially over in half the world. Whether you're trying to be extra inspired or extra organized, this lovely minimal pencil pouch will surely give you a little extra motivation—whether you're sketching, taking notes in class or brainstorming in a meeting. Available in blush, gray or emerald, these pouches can hold pens, pencils, headphones, keys and various other tchotchkes you might have to transport.
