Purely Perfect
Cleansing Creme
$40

Michael Gordon, founder of Bumble and Bumble, envisions a future in which nobody shampoos. This seemingly radical idea turns into common sense once you realize that most shampoos have detergents and sulfates that strip natural oils and damage hair—requiring the use of conditioners and masks. The aloe vera and essential oil-based Cleansing Creme by Purely Perfect is free of all of the above, but don't let its lotion-like texture or lack of foaming scare you off. Our locks have never felt softer or more manageable, and our shower never cleaner, as it's the only hair product you really need. It's a must-have especially for those who dye or bleach their hair as it keeps the color in and further damage at bay.

All Franc Bakon pieces are hand-sewn by Rose himself, who spends the rest of his day working in a NYC leather shop.

The specially manufactured halogen bulb appears to float like a balloon, and has a cap with Mickey Mouse-like ears that rests on top.

Old Grand Dad
Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
$25

Something about the Bonded 100 proof bottling of this Kentucky bourbon speaks to its origins and continued success. It's not expensive, it's not fancy. It's just good old fun—with a higher amount of rye in the mashbill for lighter, spicier profile. The "Old Grand-Dad" mentioned happens to be distiller Basil Hayden (whose own namesake line also continues to wow). While he didn't develop this, his grandson did—and did so with fervor.
