STEMI
Hexapod
$349

With education as its primary function, STEMI's hexapod kit teaches users how to build a six-legged robot and then program its movements. Of the many brain-expanding elements, a better understanding of 3D models and electronics' technologies are applicable beyond the exciting toy. All tutorials are housed online and everything users need comes in the box. Smartphone controlled, the Hexapod itself is an educational toy unlike any other.

Poketo
Art Every Day Notebook
$9

Whether you're suffering from post-holiday blues or a case of the Mondays, usually the best treatment is to kickstart your creativity. One easy and affordable way to do that is a good old doodle or freewrite. This notebook from Poketo is especially useful because it quite literally tells you to get creative—the front (and back) say "Art Every Day."

POMS + Pared
Pink Crystal Sunglasses
$280

Joining forces again, Australian brands POMS and Pared have created new sunglasses for 2017 and while they are decidedly retro, they are also present day-playful—thanks to some dangly details. Both arms of the new design come complete with a silver and Swarovski Briolette charm attachment, for some seriously fun flair. Available in six colorways (tortoiseshell, black, lilac, clear, ivory or pink) these sunnies offer 100% UVA and UVB protection. (Price is in AUD.)

Beats By Dre + Alexander Wang
Studio Wireless Headphones
$600

Joining forces for the second time, Beats by Dre and Alexander Wang have released a pair of super-functional, wireless headphones. These limited edition, over-ear headphones are foldable for easy transporting, and have chic, crocodile-embossed leather ear-pads. Also coming with a matching gray leather case, these headphones combine Wang's sleek style and Beats' impressive sound for a solid collaboration.

Gorman
Harlequin Raincoat
$79

Rather than donning a black or gray raincoat, or even the standard yellow version, why not bring radiance to the storm with one of Gorman's brightly colored offerings. Our pick is the Harlequin, with its rainbow hues and scribble-like pattern. With elasticized toggles on the hood and hem to keep you encased, you'll stay dry in this cheerful number. Available in S/M or M/L.

Case Studyo + Jean Jullien
Face Plates Set
$303

This set of six differently shaped plates, with six different faces, was made by the very talented French artist Jean Jullien for Case Studyo. Hand-cast in porcelain, the plates are also in an array of colors—from coral to mint green and pale yellow. Of course each character is endearing in Jullien's trademark way, and the fact that they are all different shapes, colors and sizes only adds to the charm. Made in an edition of 250, these plates are set to ship in February. (Price is in Euros.)

Power & Light Press
Stand With Planned Parenthood Tote
$15

More than a regular bag to tote your goods around (though it will do that), this bag from Power & Light Press donates all proceeds to Planned Parenthood. Listing all the services that PP offers—perhaps for those who believe it exists purely to provide abortions—the bag is simply printed with various essentials like pap smears, counseling and more. (Note: they are changing "mammogram" to "breast exam" for all future orders.)

Natalie Joy
Philodendron Plant Mobile
$130

Made from 100% brass, this gorgeous Philodendron leaf mobile is one plant you will never kill. Since the material will develop a patina as it ages, it can be hung somewhere warm and dry to slow the process—or the opposite to hasten it. Crafted in Portland, Oregon, it ships flat and needs no tools for assembly.

Ric Bell
Dodecal 3D Calendar
$79

Far from a traditional calendar, this wooden 3D Dodecal designed by Ric Bell makes for a beautiful desk accessory. With 12 faces (aka a dodecahedron) this calendar has the months and days laser-engraved on each side—so all you need to do is flip each month. Made from sustainably sourced European Sycamore wood, this piece weighs 320 grams and has been handcrafted using both traditional woodworking techniques and technology. Price is in British Pounds.

Shed
Boobies Collar
$30

Made from 100% natural fair-trade hemp, Shed collars for pets come adorned with all kinds of playful and provocative patterns. From marijuana leaves to dinosaurs, smiley poop and boobs, they are each as silly and cute as the next. Available in small, medium or large, they can fit small dogs, cats and even "small bears," so your best pal will be the right size for one of these fun accessories.

William Morrow Cookbooks
Egg Shop: The Cookbook
$35

With 100 recipes for dishes and drinks from beloved NYC cafe Egg Shop, the upcoming cookbook (which is available for pre-order now) is full of yummy treats. Not only does the book include super-helpful egg-cooking techniques, there are also tips on sourcing quality bacon and the best kind of cheese for melting. We're looking forward to attempting the delicious Egg Shop B.E.C at home.

Pizza
Pizza Deck
$55

Measuring 8.375 inches, this Pizza skate deck is bold and definitely not for carb-free skate enthusiasts. This split-stain deck comes with a sheet of grip (black or clear) and has a decidedly retro vibe.

The Balvenie
Tun 1509 Batch No 3 Single Malt Scotch
$600

It might not seem like 9000 bottles is a small batch, but when considering global distribution, this product quickly becomes scarce. Continuing their celebrated Tun 1509 series, No 3 features 31 single malts married in a tun hailing from 31 different casks, including 12 sherry butts distilled between 1989 and 1992; 11 American oak hogsheads distilled in 1989; and eight refill American oak butts distilled in 1992 and 1993. The resulting flavor profile is Balvenie through and through—with that Speyside vanilla sweetness upfront but layers of spice below.

RVS
Limited Edition Palladium 001 Sunglasses
$1,300

From RVS' "Rebirth" collection, the Palladium 001, comes in several colorways—though this silver version is a true stand-out. While the perfectly round lenses offer a retro vibe, the high, arched bridge is a contemporary twist. These limited edition shades—made of 100% solid silver—are simple, modern and minimal. Made in an edition of just 10, they are super-exclusive, and will surely stand the test of time.

Croft
10-Year-Old Tawny Port
$26

You don't need to know much about Port, a fortified wine, to enjoy what Croft has done with this 10-year-old tawny. Spice and oak flavors (vanilla and caramel) unite beneath the smooth red fruit-driven blended wine base. This is a delight to drink straight, but Port has also been factoring into cocktails recently—and for good reason.

Cocktail Kingdom
Skull Barspoon
$25

Crafted from stainless steel (though, there are copper, silver, gunmetal black and gold-plated options), this Skull Barspoon from Cocktail Kingdom makes those 30 seconds of stirring an Old Fashioned a little extra fun and also macabre. Developed with Jeff "Beachbum" Berry, this 33cm long utensil gets the job done with personality.

Redbreast
Lustau Edition, Single-Pot Still Irish Whiskey
$75

As we've noted before, the phrase "single pot still" in Irish Whisky is akin to the respect warranted by single malt in scotch. Redbreast's latest, the Lustau Edition, sees this well-crafted spirit aged in Bodegas Lustau ex-Sherry barrels. The traditional Irish whisky creaminess meets with spice that lingers well after each sip. At 92 proof, this spirit is rather potent but without any loss of nuance.

Phaidon
Oh So Pretty: Punk in Print 1976-1980
$20

With a punk memorabilia collection that stretched 40 years, Toby Mott was the right person to dive in and pick out items from bands, designers and political groups for the new book "Oh So Pretty: Punk in Print 1976–80." Mott shows how punk was much more than spiky hair and safety pins through his tome, via some 500 artifacts. With zines, posters, badges and more, Mott explores the DIY nature of the movement—displaying just how incredibly creative it really was.

Susanne Kaufmann
Winter Oil Bath
$106

Deeply aromatic and luxuriant to the touch, the Winter Oil Bath from Austrian holistic (and organic) beauty expert Susanne Kaufmann lends an extra layer of extravagance to every bath. Orange oil lays out the base note while cinnamon and clove waft forward. A bit of evergreen rounds it all out. The real essential oils within were blended in Austria. And more than just a lush fragrance, there's nourishing capabilities that will relax dry winter skin.

Everytown
"Keep Going" Pin
$5

A very simple message on a pin: Keep Going. Not only is it a little daily motivation for all kinds of tasks, but it's an essential reminder that we need to continue our fight to end gun violence. The Everytown movement wants to build safer communities and keep innocent people out of harm's way—a very reasonable mission, considering almost 13k people have been killed due to gun violence in the USA this year.
