Olivia von Halle
Navy Silk Pajamas
$350

Several steps up from your regular cotton T-shirt and underwear, Olivia von Halle's sleepwear and robes are luxurious. With pretty prices to match, her 100% silk pajamas are divine—with colorways and patterns aplenty. Our pick is the classic navy blue, which is sophisticated and—for those klutzes among us—will hide coffee stains more easily than white.

J W Anderson
Penis-Shaped Keyring
$108

Maybe the perfect gift for the person in your life who has three of everything, J W Anderson's penis-shaped keyring. Available in black, white or red and measuring 17cm (make a joke if you will) this keyring is made from 100% leather and invites all kinds of excellent puns and jokes—which is almost always welcome.

Hippeas
Sriracha Sunshine Organic Chickpea Puffs
$31

Organic, certified gluten-free, vegan, kosher and non-GMO, Hippeas' chickpea puffs are a healthier alternative to potato chips, but are just as satisfying. Super-crunchy and tasty, our pick is the Sriracha Sunshine flavor, which has just the spicy kick you need when it's time for that afternoon treat.

WINDEN + The Rising States
"RAD" Necklace
$185

Tell somebody how you feel about them with this "RAD" necklace from WINDEN and The Rising States, which is available in solid 14k yellow gold. Cast in NYC's Diamond District and soldered in WINDEN's Brooklyn studio, this is a delicate piece, but with a robust message.

Aesop
Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Facial Hydrating Cream
$75

Aesop's latest product, Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Facial Hydrating Cream is super-lush and creamy on application, but sinks into skin quickly, leaving it feeling soft and nourished—not oily or sticky. Ultra-hydrating, this product's main ingredient is aloe barbadensis leaf juice—unlike so many other moisturizers that are mostly made up of water. To be used after cleansing one's face, this cream is perfect for anybody whose skin is suffering the winter blues and—like all Aesop products—smells divine.

Bloom Farms
Mountain Ranch, CA: ACDC
$40

Provide safe and enjoyable medicine while removing the stigma from marijuana use, Bloom Farms is yet another impressive company on the "cannabiz" landscape. Their Mountain Ranch ACDC is a sativa-dominant, high-CBD, single-origin strain with a THC:CBD ratio of 1:3 which means patients will gain a sense of calm and muscle relaxation, but with little of the traditional "high." Find out where to buy it on their website.

Coyuchi
Unisex Organic Cotton Waffle Robe
$98

Robes tend to reflect a justifiable luxury: they keep you warm and comfy post-shower or whenever you need a little coziness. Here, Coyuchi updates the classic unisex spa robe with an airy waffle pattern. Crafted from fine organic cotton, the robe comes in both gray and Alpine white colorways. Additionally, it's washing-machine safe.

brvtvs
Ring II
$740

Caroline Ventura's minimal jewelry brand brvtvs might be subtle, but clearly makes a sophisticated statement. Handmade in her NYC studio, this 14k gold band is delicate and easily paired with other accessories, but the inside features a hidden detail: a gorgeous conflict-free diamond. Available in sizes 3 to 7, with a white or black diamond, the ring measures a super-fine 2mm.

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."

Intelligent Nutrients
Plant Retinol Science Time Traveler Serum
$90

With such a bold name, one immediately gets a sense of Plant Retinol Science Time Traveler Serum'a goal: to provide anti-aging skincare by way of retinol. Otherwise known as Vitamin A, retinol has been clinically proven to encourage cell growth. With Intelligent Nutrients' product, dark spots can diminish and wrinkles may soften. Not all the ingredients are easy to pronounce but 100% of them stem from natural sources. And with five essential oils at its core, there's a refreshing natural silkiness.

Dr Barbara Sturm
Eye Cream
$140

Dr Barbara Sturm's eye cream contains an infusion of golden root and sugar beet, but it's her medical understanding of cells and anti-aging that lead to components like active omega fatty acids. The cream delivers hydration while also offering a soothing effect and a reduction of puffiness. It also happens to be free from synthetic fragrances, parabens and mineral oils.

Raw Complexions
Skintox Beauty Food
$35

Rather than just slathering lotions and potions on your skin, it's common knowledge that a healthy diet and lots of water can help with your complexion. Wellness on the inside oftentimes is coupled with an outer glow. Raw Complexions' Skintox Beauty Food works that process with superfoods and Chinese herbs that help to detoxify and cleanse the liver—the organ most often associated with common skin conditions like acne, rosacea, dehydration and inflammation. With bee pollen, pomegranate and more, this blend can be added to smoothies, juices or granola to boost your inner and outer health.

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.)

Red Flower
Icelandic Moonflower Aromatherapeutic Body Oil
$34

With a high concentration of aromatherapy essential oils, Red Flower's Icelandic Moonflower Aromatherapeutic Body Oil can be used in baths or applied during a massage. Within, moonflower oils meet sandalwood, clove bud, rose and more combine for a rich, nuanced fragrance. Made with certified organic ingredients, this bath oil steers clear of dyes, artificial preservatives, parabens and sulfates.

Panatea
Instant Matcha
$20

Anyone who has made their own matcha knows the ritual of its preparation is partially about ceremony, but largely about achieving the optimal consistency. Whisking the bright green powder into a bowl of water helps break up the clumps often found in even the highest grades of tea. One would never just mix it with a spoon as the result would be a gnarly mess, but Panatea’s Instant Matcha (available in a 10 single-serving packet canister for $20 or a 30-packet bag for $40) dissolves evenly with a mere turn of the spoon. Not only is it fast and easy, this matcha maintains all the delicious and healthy benefits of the tea.

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.

Thrive Market
Organic Coconut Flour
$4

For those who are gluten-free or just looking for a healthier alternative to regular flour, this organic coconut flour is low-carb and fiber-rich. On top of that, it's non-GMO, kosher and vegan (of course), and includes no added sugars or dyes. Great for all kinds of cooking (we especially suggest it for coating your fish and seafood) it has a lower glycemic index, so it converts into sugar in your blood more slowly.

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.

Shire City Herbal
Fire Cider
$22

Made in Massachusetts, Shire City Herbals' Fire Cider has been tingling our tongues and throats whenever we feel under the weather for some time now. The apple cider vinegar-based recipe becomes palatable with a little local honey and organic oranges. The zing comes from lemons, onions, horseradish root, ginger root, habanero pepper, garlic and turmeric—certainly an extra kick for those who need it. Liquid torture for some; a miracle tonic for others, you can take it straight or add it to a hot toddy.
