[GIFTED] Be a Bag Tote 

People who don't have children will endlessly complain about how once people do have children, their social media feeds become an endless parade of baby pictures and posts crowdsourcing information on ultra-absorbant diapers and organic baby food.  Non-parents don't want to see any of this shit. 

Here's the thing about social media, though—what you post is a direct reflection of your life.  Remember how you used to post albums full of drunken photos in college and now you're only posting pictures of what you're eating for brunch and your dog and what buildings look like from your commute home?  Yeah.  So, it's only natural when you have a kid that you start posting pictures of the thing that is literally taking up all of your time and energy.  

And nothing says, "LOOK AT MY KID RIGHT FUCKING NOW" like this Be a Bag Tote ($420, Anya Hindmarch).  It's the analog approach to baby pictures and it's adorable.

[GIFTED] Toolbook

So you have to do something simple, like tighten a doorknob handle.  This SHOULD be a quick task.  Unfortunately for you, your screwdriver is in your tool kit which is buried somewhere incredibly inconvienient because you do not have a garage to neatly store these types of things in.

Fast-forward to you digging the tool kit out from the never-ending abyss that is the cabinet underneath your kitchen sink.  It doesn't have to be this way. 

The GENIUSES over at Strelka came up with ToolBook ($129, Strelka), a tool kit housed within a book that can be easily slipped into your bookcase for easy access. 

The ToolBook contains 4 types of screwdrivers and 6 types of wrenches.  You'll never be shoving your head under your kitchen sink, grappling in the dark for a tool kit when you just want to accomplish a simple task EVER again (except, I guess, when you're trying to find your hammer).

[GIFTED] F Troupe Saddleshoes

It's all about the accessories, amright?  You could wear the same pair of boring pants for 30 days straight but if you switch in a snazzy pair of shoes, no one will notice the pants because EVERYONE will be noticing what you have on your feet. 

These F Troupe Saddle Shoes ($150, Woodlawn) are straight up ADORABLE and are sure to get you a lot of compliments from girls you hate at the office.

[GIFTED] Savile Weekender Bag

When you're going away for just a weekend (or a 48-hour business trip), you don't want to be the jackass lugging along a giant, rolly suitcase.  Showing up with a giant suitcase for a short trip says, "Hi, I'm high maintenence."    What the hell do you need to pack, anyway?  You need two outfits, your toiletries, and your iPad.  Case closed. 

This Savile Weekender Bag ($389, Monte & Coe) is all you need.  Named after London's historic, fashionable Savile Row, the bag is made of gray felt with brown leather straps, meaning it's fancy enough for a business trip and casual enough for a weekend with your buddies.

[GIFTED] Whistle

We all know someone who is obsessed with their dog.  But not obsessed like you're obsessed with House of Cards.  Pyschopath level obsessed.  "Hey, follow my dog on Instagram obsessed!"  "Why didn't you RSVP to my dog's 3rd birthday party?" obsessed.  "I just want to be home with my dog" is a sentence that you've heard them say many times.  

You will be the greatest friend in the world if you give them Whistle ($129), which is being billed as FitBit for dogs.  You know how we all obsessively track everything in our lives, from our location to our physical activity to our calorie intake?  Well now we can do this for our dogs, too, which will make your dog-obsessed friend jump for literal joy.      

Whistle attaches to the dog's collar and syncs up with an App that tracks his activity levels, sleep/rest patterns, and more.  The most obsessive dog owners can manually keep track of their dog's medication and food intake.  If she's away, she can check the App to see whether the dog is running around her apartment (presumably ruining everything), or sleeping for 6 hours.  What a useful tool!
