Rose All Day Carry On Cocktail Kit

Flying used to be a treat, but nowadays, it's something to be endured. Airlines are trying to cram as many people as they can into tiny planes, and something goes wrong so often that you are genuinely surprised when your flight actually takes off on time. Drink service is often limited, and forget about getting anything that even resembles something close to a meal. 

Help yourself actually enjoy flying again (that is, if you ever did in the first place) by bringing along this Rose All Day Carry On Cocktail Kit ($20, Huckberry). Just snag yourself a mini bottle of liquor and cup from the flight attendant and you've got everything else you need to make a high-quality cocktail—seriously, there are Sugarfina Rose Gummy Bears in the kit—while you're flying high in the sky.

Bodum Chambord French Press 

Everyone has a different preference when it comes to how they want to get their morning coffee. Some want to down multiple cups from a huge pot before they walk out the door; others don't want to bother with it at all, preferring to pick up a fancy concoction every day at their local coffee shop on the way to the office.

If you're somewhere in the middle of those two things, we strongly recommend the French press.

The brew process is one of the easiest, least expensive ways to make great coffee. It's decidedly low-tech: All you need is some hot water, ground coffee, the device, and some arm muscles to press the coffee.

Want to give it a try? Check out the Bodum Chambord French Press ($37, Amazon). Read the rest on The Kitchn.

Lexdray x New Era Photo Cap 

If there's someone in your life that likes to travel light (read: without carrying around a billion bags), this Lexdray x New Era Photo Cap ($59, Lexdray) is right up their alley.

The collaboration between the legendary hat maker and the craft label specializing in all things carryology is both high fashion and high function, made specifically with on-the-go photographers in mind. What's the #1 thing a photographer tends to lose?  Their lens cap. This hat includes a subtle slot perfect for a lens cap's safe-keeping. 

And, yes, while it's made specifically to hold easy-to-lose lens caps, it can also hold small sundry items like golf tees, a single house key, and the like, so the wearer always has essentials handy, without being weighed down.

11 Candles to Make Your Home Hygge

Around the holidays, freezing cold temperatures and massive snowfall is tolerable, maybe even something you hope for (“White Christmas” is a popular song for a reason).  But as soon as January hits, all of those “walkin’ in a winter wonderland” feelings dissipate, and you’re forced to face the fact that you have at least two months of bitterly cold weather without a smidgen of holiday cheer.

So, you do what all of us in the Northeast do in these dead months between the holiday season and Spring—you post up at home, binging shows in your sweats and probably eating and drinking too much, all in an effort to avoid going outside where the wind feels like tiny ice picks stabbing you in the face.  All of this—whether you know it or not—is a serious quest to achieve hygge, the Danish concept of feeling cozy, a busy term you’ve probably heard your hipster cousin throw around recently.

How do you make your home hella hygge? Start with a bunch of blankets, and then move immediately to candles, which never fail to add ambience and a sense of coziness and warmth to any room they’re in.  We’ve rounded up 11 of our favorites to help you on your way—read it on Parade.

Chef'n FreshForce Citrus Juicer 

Lemons and limes might conjure up thoughts of warm-weather fare (lime-spiked margaritas, jugs of fresh lemonade, and the like), so it might surprise you to find out that it's actually the cold months (November through March) when these tangy fruits really hit their stride.

That's why you should continue using them through winter, and if you do, this Chef'n FreshForce Citrus Juicer will come in super handy. Read the rest on The Kitchn
