[GIFTED] Gfeller Document Case

Ron Swansons of the world, take note: all of the flimsy document cases, laptop cases, and portfolios have met their match with this Gfeller Document Case ($325, Best Made Co.).  Handmade in small batches by an Idaho craftsman, it's rugged but elegant, can hold important papers, notebooks, iPads, and even a 13-inch MacBook Air.  It's worth the splurge.

[GIFTED] Boom! Sculpture 

Interior designers are always saying that a room needs a STATEMENT PIECE.  When you're young, you're all like, "Hey, does this folding chair and Doors poster count as a statement piece?"  But now that you're an adult, you need to up your home design game.  

This Boom! Sculpture ($280, Handmade Font) is made out of concrete, making it dude approved because it's TOUGH.  It would look great in the living room or in the office, if you're the type of person who celebrates any professional triumph by screaming the word "BOOM!"  You could make it your signature statement, even.

[GIFTED] Handjob Hooks

Coat hooks are like door knobs.  They're usually boring, but definitely necessary to have a functional household.  They don't HAVE to be boring, though, as these Handjob Hooks ($150, Thelermont Hupton) demonstrate.  These shiny, bright lacquered hooks are available in a myriad of colors and different positioning (rock on, thumbs up, up yours, peace, and more) and will make your space look way more badass than those ugly generic coat hooks that you bought at Home Depot.

[GIFTED] Island Drifters Floating Sunglasses

You go to the beach, and everything's fantastic.  But then you get too hot and you want to go in the water.  Here, you face a huge dilemma.  It's sunny and you want to continue to wear your sunglasses.  But you don't want to lose your expensive Ray-Bans to the ocean.  So you solider on out to the water and spend the rest of the afternoon squinting.  White people problems, but a real problem nonetheless. 

Lucky for you (and ALL of us), some geniuses created FLOATING SUNGLASSES.  That's right.  These are sunglasses you can wear in the water, and if a rogue wave knocks them off your face, you'll find them floating right next to you.  Fantastic, right?  And so, in the waning days of summer, consider buying these Island Drifters Floating Sunglasses ($125, Hammock & Palms).  Your Labor Day weekend beach plans will be worry-free, and you'll be ready for next summer (or your wintertime, let's-get-the-hell-out-of-the-cold tropical vacation).

[GIFTED] The Fonde Rolling Pin

They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, but it's the same for women. You put two men of equal attractiveness next to each other and tell a woman that Guy A is a fantastic cook while Guy B always defaults to delivery, and she's gonna go with Guy A.  Always. 

So, you're doing the thing where you've decided to cook for a woman because you're trying to impress her. This always ends in disaster—not because you don't know how to cook—but because you always aim too high.  You go for the rack of lamb instead of the easier roasted chicken.  You opt for homemade pasta and sauce instead of just buying it from a specialty market.  Ultimately, you spend the majority of the evening in the kitchen, sweating and fanning flames and/or smoke, while your date sits in the living room, quietly sipping Chardonnay and wondering if this is what life is always going to be like with you.

Luckily for you, the folks at Repast Supply Co. decided to create a tool that will help you achieve your culinary ambitions the easy way.  The Fonde Rolling Pin ($99) allows you to create picture-perfect ravioli out of a ball of dough in seconds.  Handmade out of your choice of Maple, Cherry, or Walnut wood, this thing will help you win big on your next 100 "hey-let-me-cook-for-you" dates.
