VonShef Mixing Bowl Set 

When it comes to building the best possible kitchen, having a high-quality mixing bowl set is essential. And while we love glass bowls for their aesthetic and their durability, there's a reason why professional chefs prefer stainless steel bowls for all of their mixing needs. Put simply, stainless steel is durable (yet lightweight) and easily washable — two things that are beyond helpful in the kitchen.

 That's why we endorse this VonShef three-piece mixing bowl set (on sale on Amazon for a steep 64 percent discount), which takes regular stainless steel mixing bowls and adds useful features to make them even better.

 The set features three bowls of varying sizes, handles for easy maneuvering, non-slip silicone bases to avoid countertop slippage, and — perhaps most ingenious — built-in spouts to allow for easy pouring of liquid ingredients into pans. Never again will you get batter on the counter trying to transfer it from your mixing bowl to your muffin tins.

Taco Booties

If you have a baby, it's important to start indoctrinating your mini-me when they're young.  Do you think a three-year-old girl decided that she likes Nirvana on her own?  Nope.  It's because Nirvana is dad's favorite band, and that three-year-old girl thinks everything that dad likes is awesome (at least for the next 7-9 years).

So, if you're really into Mexican food and want your kid to enthusiastically embrace everything that Taco Tuesday provides, start 'em young, namely with these adorable Taco Booties ($25, Uncommon Goods). They'll be the hit of any Mexican restaurant you frequent, and you better believe they're Cinco de Mayo appropriate. Que linda!

Malvaux Number 1 Knife 


Back in the day, you used to have outdoorsy guys and indoorsy guys.  The two were ardently different. One guy would spend his weekends fishin' and hikin' and actively removing the "g's" off of words, while the other guy would go to nice restaurants and bars, and maybe an art museum, where he pretended to understand oil paintings for an afternoon while wearing a collared shirt.

But now—thanks to hipsters, mostly—those two types of guys have merged, which is why you'll see dudes hiking in $250 flannel shirts or buying $600 axes (which they will never actually use, by the way). Yes, the "cabin porn" industry is on the rise, and these dudes are soaking it right up.

That's why, in addition to the expensive flannels and axes, we have this—admittedly beautiful—Malvaux Number 1 Knife, which boasts a $250 price tag (you read that right).  This ain't your grandfather's Swiss Army Knife, by any stretch, but the guy you're buying it for is nothing like this grandfather anyway.

SNOOZ White Noise Machine

If you need noise to fall asleep, you basically have three options: 

  1. Sleep with the TV on, which has the potential to annoy partners unless the like the dulcet sounds of The Simpsons' theme song going off every 20 or so minutes as you cycle through the "play all" setting of your favorite DVD.
  2. Sleep with an AC or fan on, which is fine in the summer, but not exactly great for cold winter months (and not really great for your electric bill either).
  3. Fall asleep to white noise apps on your phone, with your headphones digging into your ears and making it virtually impossible to get comfortable. 

 Listen up, though... we've found a fourth option, and that's the SNOOZ White Noise Machine ($79, Amazon). Using the sound of a real fan (without making your room cold), the machine will help drown out other noise and lull you to sleep. It's compact, lightweight, and is nicely-designed enough for you to want to keep it on your nightstand.

Brutal Truth Moisturizer 

We're not exactly sure where the concept of taking care of yourself took on a feminine bent, but having a self-care regimen is something dudes dismiss as something only for the fairer sex. Because of this, a lot of guys are reticent to adopt any kind of grooming routine aside from brushing their teeth and shaving (which, now that beards are en vogue, rarely happens anyway).    

Listen up, men—it's time to start taking care of your damn self.  Brutal Truth is a line of men's products believe that whole-heartedly, and this Brutal Truth Moisturizer ($32, Huckberry) is perhaps the first good step towards adopting a regular skincare routine.
