Freddy Taylor
Sponge Calendar 2016
$30

London-based designer Freddy Taylor captures "12 unintended uses for the sponge" in his deadpan 2016 calendar.

Hilarious and charming without being the least bit tacky.

Bausele
Pilot Automatic Tasman Blue
$1,600

The Pilot Automatic watch designed by Australia's luxury timepiece brand Bausele captures attention for two reasons: a hyper-modern face and an off-center dial. Both of these attributes are drawn from aviation pilot watches of old and the latter observation makes it an ideal driving watch. With one's hands at 10 and two on a steering wheel, the dial appears perfectly aligned. This 44mm piece, made in Switzerland, pairs a black matte ceramic case with a deep blue leather strap, furthering the distinct look. And as it's made in an edition of only 75.

Race Point Publishing
Sketchy Stories
$12

Delving into renowned artist Kerby Rosanes' sketchbook—via his newly published "Sketchy Stories"—is akin to seeing behind the curtain. It's a reproduction of his Moleskin and is chock-full of positive mantras along with strange and sweet critters and characters—from martians to wolves and even a take on Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man. Since it's all in black and white, it almost begs to be a coloring book—though we're unsure whether the artist would approve or not.

William N Copley
Think Pin
$10

William N Copley (aka CPLY) passed away in 1996, but his thoughtful and provocative art remains relevant. Somewhere between Surrealism and American pop art, Copley's work is colorful, bold and full of allegory. This American flag pin (with the word "think" replacing the stars) is a timely reminder that's it's possible to be hopeful, thoughtful, respectful and still patriotic.

Specialized
Airnet MIPS Bike Helmet
$170

A well-ventilated helmet makes all the difference between enjoying vs cursing your summer commute and weekend bike rides.

Both the streamlined design and mid-tier price hit a sweet spot between baseline and pro offerings. Available in men's and women's sizing (the latter has a Hairport to fit ponytails), this snug Airnet is equipped with a Multi-Directional Impact Protection System for even more protection.

Bliss and Mischief
Legalize Bliss T-Shirt
$124

Made in the USA from 100% cotton, the T-shirt is slim-fitting—so keep that in mind when buying online.

The Beach People Co
The Tulum Round Towel
$110

Designed in Australia, this giant round beach towel is big enough for two. Measuring 60 inches in diameter, and boasting a cream and black design, it will be at home on the hot sand but will be just as useful when picnicking in a park or sunbathing by the pool. Complete with tasseled edges, it's a little bit posh, but if you spill a daiquiri it won't be the end of the world—made from 100% cotton, it should wash out.

Sideshow Press
