There's something about popping a bottle of champage that just feels special, whether it's the satisfying POP of the cork or the slight fear of not doing it right and taking someone's eye out (or a combination of both). But if champagne's mere presence makes things more celebratory, get ready to take things up about 5,000 notches with the Champagne Gun ($459, King of Sparklers).
Yes, you read that right. A champagne GUN. Load it with your favorite bottle of bubs, pull the trigger, and douse whoever you're celebrating with the good stuff. If you're attending a bachelor or bachelorette party soon, bring this and be the hero of the weekend.
And for those trips (if you're a smart traveler), all you need is a good weekender bag, like this Overnight Duffel Bag ($175, Hook & Albert). It's large enough to fit everything you need for 3-4 days, but compact enough to stow in the overhead bin without any issues. And honestly, with the limited time you have to spend on a long weekend, you don't want to spend even one minute of it waiting in baggage claim, right? Right.
Wireless speakers have revolutionized the way we listen to tunes at home—allowing us to get high-quality sound out of something the size of a beer can that we can control from the next room with our phones (thanks, Sonos). But because today's wireless speakers are designed to have a small footprint, they've all but removed the stereo's ability to be a showpiece in your home.
Enter BoomCase, that creates wireless speakers out of antique pieces, meaning that you'll get to enjoy the sound and the technology you get from a wireless speaker while still having something cool and more aesthetically-pleasing in your home. The one above is fashioned out of a vintage US Army Signal Corps Frequency Meter Box, but they have other options as well, including vintage suitcases, telephones, and more.
Spring has sprung, and if you're lucky, that means that you're gearing up for a summer full of long weekend trips so you can get the hell out of dodge (aka: the city where garbage roasts itself on the hot pavement). And for all of those weekend plans, you need a solid weekender bag.
One that's roomy enough to fit a weekend's worth of stuff, but not big enough to not be able to be slung over your shoulder as you're running to catch a train or fit in the back of your buddy's car next to a cooler full of beer.
This Ted Weekender Bag ($108, MRKT) fits that bill and then some. Made out of sturdy wool felt, it's unique but rugged, meaning it'll stand up to whatever your summer weekends throw at it (a lot of booze, probably).
