Georgia Perry
"Free to Roam" Bandana
$60

With 20% of profits being donated to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre in Australia, Melbourne-based artist/designer Georgia Perry's "Free to Roam" bandana is a great investment. The ASRC advocates for asylum seekers and offers aid and healthcare, and the message of Perry's silk-blend bandana couldn't be more on point. Measuring 52 by 52 centimeters and featuring a hand-rolled hem, this bandana is lightweight but makes a difference.

Gro.io
Three Plant System
$1,750

With everything needed to grow at home, the Gro.io Three Plant System comes with buckets, lights (180 watts with spectrum control) and more. The SmartHub controls light, hydration and nutrient dosage and pairs with a free app to control settings and get notifications. Depending on your strain and the desired light cycle, you could grow plants to maturity in as little as eight weeks.

8-Bit Art
Super Mario Sticky Note Art Kit
$5

With easy-to-follow instructions and custom sticky notes as the medium, a Super Mario mosaic can be added to just about any wall or window. Mimicking a retro 8-bit style, thanks to the block-like sticky notes, there's a nostalgic visual appeal to the final product. And if Mario isn't your go-to, 8-Bit Art licensed plenty from the Nintendo Mario franchise, as well as The Legend of Zelda and Donkey Kong. All purchases will ship in May 2017.

Tanner Goods
Herb Grinder
$90

A dual functioning grinder and storage container, this CNC machined high-grade aluminum object uses Neodymium magnets to hold together and locks airtight. It's all made in Portland, Oregon and Tanner Goods has-laser etched their new "Stay Green" graphic on its surface to keep the message strong. As cannabis culture gets further entrenched in the luxury world (openly), this is an item that should appeal to the refined smoker.

Pollen Gear
Child-Resistant Glass Jar Collection
$10

With their beautiful, patent-pending design, Pollen Gear has introduced a series of glass jar collections. Beyond preserving the freshness of the contents within, the jars are airtight, smell-proof and water-resistant. Further, each is child-resistant—providing a safe space for storing something special. The jars are available in a range of sizes and finishes. Reach out to Pollen Gear online for purchase information and pricing.

Monitaly
Super OG Kush Shorts
$295

Made from 100% premium cotton, Monitaly's "Super OG Kush" shorts feature an all-over marijuana leaf print, but in a non-traditional colorway that makes it a little less easy to identify. Black serves as the background while the leaves are in shades of blue, green, yellow and brown. Sitting just above the knee, these shorts have a neat double-fold hem and a zipper fly.

Yamato Indigo
Indigo Dye Kit
$55

With no heating, fermentation or extra ingredients, Yamato Indigo only needs water and you're on your way to dyeing fabric a lush, vibrant blue. Able to color natural materials (including cotton, linen, silk, leather, wood and washi paper), the starter kit comes with 10g of Yamato Indigo, three cotton bandanas, wood sticks, rubber bands and two pairs of gloves.

hmbldt + Mister Green
GO420 T-Shirt
$25

Made from 5.5 ounce premium ring-spun cotton, this limited edition T-shirt was made by two of our favorite cannabis-friendly brands: hmbldt and Mister Green. With a minimal design and positive message, it's made in California and comes in sizes from XS through XXL. With imagery front and back, this T-shirt has been screen printed.

The World is Your Burger: A Cultural History
$25

The trusty burger has quite the storied history, which David Michaels explores in great depth through his encyclopedic tome "The World is Your Burger: A Cultural History." From the origin of the classic burger to the current iteration, it's studied via essays, photographs, ephemera and even recipes. This hardcover, 400-page book is an essential for any burgerphile.

Bee Teeth
"Burn Brite" Pennant
$20

This black, forked pennant is illustrated with a white and gold hand—the Hand of Glory, to be precise. (The Hand of Glory is said to have great powers when placed with a candle made from the fat of the man whose hand it was.) Made from black felt, this flag offers some mythical powers as well as positive motivation, with the words "Burn Brite." Measuring 13 by 19 inches, this pennant can be hung just about anywhere—from your bedroom, locker or office cubicle wall.

LEVO
Oil Infuser
$200

Get extra creative in the kitchen with small-batch infused oils and butters made through this nifty appliance. Able to add flavor and impart nutrients, users can infuse with herbs, fruits and other ingredients. With precise time and temperature controls, the infuser's reservoir is dishwasher-safe for easy cleaning. Plus, there's a child-lock option.

Third Drawer Down Studio + Guerrilla Girls
"Advantages of Being a Woman Artist" Clutch
$23

Another product in their ongoing collaborative collection, this "Advantages of Being a Woman Artist" clutch by Third Drawer Down Studio + Guerrilla Girls is pink and practical. From "Knowing your career might pick up after you're 80," to "Seeing your ideas live on in the work of others," the list is real, funny and sad all at once. Made from 100% cotton, toss your pencils, paints, make-up, money and more into the clutch and keep fighting the good fight.

L.A. Burdick Chocolates
Dark Chocolate Rocher Nest With Eggs
$38

All natural and preservative free, L.A. Burdick Chocolates's Rocher Nest with Eggs features dual layer gourmet chocolate flair. On the outside, dark chocolate and sugar-coated toasted almonds form a crunchy nest. Inside, the chocolatier includes five eggs featuring dark, milk, and white chocolate, including hazelnut praline, banana-honey caramel and raspberry white chocolate ganache fillings. There are flavors for everyone here, and it's been made with the utmost care, from a brand celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.

Silver Stick
Leather Kit
$75

Small enough to stow in a pocket, SilverStick's Typewriter Black leather pouch comes complete with a streamlined one-hitter and cap, 25 natural cotton filters, a stainless steel poker and an airtight container. The handcrafted Horween leather kit can also fit a lighter, but doesn't come with one. Each kit is made in the USA, and details like direction etchings on the inside make it truly considered and convenient.

Porter
Beat Waist Bag
$230

A less sporty, yet decidedly athleisure version of the fanny pack, Porter's Beat Bag is made from once-washed cotton canvas and comes in a subtle beige colorway. With several different compartments and pockets, functional organization is a key feature—whether wearing the bag around your waist or slung over your torso.

A Tribe Called Quest
We Got it From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service
$33

A Tribe Called Quest's first album in 18 years We Got it From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service was released late 2016 but still feels (like all of their records) super-fresh after countless listens. Featuring the likes of André 3000, Kendrick Lamar, Jack White, Elton John and more, it's diverse and boasts seamless production across all 16 tracks. Of course, the group's beloved, now-deceased member Phife Dawg makes a posthumous appearance.

Zach Wahls
Woman Playing Cards
$20

In a regular deck of playing cards there are only four women, but in Zach Wahls' version all 54 cards feature smart, resilient and inspiring women. Beyoncé is (of course) the queen, Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the king, Harriet Tubman is number eight, and other well-known names to grace these cards include Ida B Wells, Rosa Parks, Sylvia Rivera, Dr Sally Ride and more. Measuring the standard 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches, the cards feature 15 original hand-drawn portraits.

Norden + Cody Hudson
Black Linen Tea Towel
$30

SoCal-based home goods purveyor Norden, run by a husband and wife duo, really excels at the artist collaboration: from a new zig-zag shaped candle made with A Question of Eagles (that smells like the Angeles National Forest) to this simple yet striking Belgian linen tea towel designed by Chicago-based artist Cody Hudson (aka Struggle Inc). Norden's selection may be small but each item on offer is created with heirloom quality in mind.

MoMA Store
Composter
$40

Made from bamboo fiber, wood fiber, cornstarch and PET resin, this composter is, itself, biodegradable. Still durable, it's dishwasher-safe and thanks to a thick carbon filter, it keeps the fragrance fresh—so your kitchen won't end up smelling funky. Unlike so many others compost bins, this one also features a likable design—almost reminiscent of a teapot. There's really no excuse not to start composting and treating the world a little better.

Krewe du Optic
Ward Sunglasses
$295

Krewe du Optic has released yet another striking style that blends geometric shapes with a decidedly retro feel. The Ward might have subdued black matte frames (made from titanium) but the unexpected shape and bright blue reflective lenses make them an eye-catching accessory.
