Joy Con Classic 

We're all nostalgic for the simple days of our childhoods, when we could sit on the floor of our living rooms and spend entire days playing Super Mario Bros. 3 on our original Nintendo system.  Now that we're all adults, though, we're both not able and not willing to indulge in that. Why?  Because adult gamers are looked down as childish.  And true, there's not a lot that sounds appealing about a 37-year-old man who devotes weekend hours to his X-Box, but hold up.  Do you play Candy Crush on your phone on the subway?  Gurl, you a gamer too. Let's all reserve the judgement about how we should be spending our free time as adults and acknowledge that zoning out is a key component of developing the ability to resist the urge to strangle everyone you see at work, on your commute, in the grocery store, etc.  The specific type of zoning out you get while playing mindless video games is especially sweet.  Let's all buy the Colorware Joy Con Classic ($199)—which pairs with Nintendo Switch—and play classic games on a classic controller. The clicking even sounds the same. Relaxxxxxxxxxxing.

Ice Pop Socks

Socks aren't really necessary in the summer, unless you're a goddamned business person, you probably have to wear business-y outfits.  You know: close-toed shoes, long wool pants, and the like.  

So, if you're so grown-up that the only fun or personality you can inject into your office daily life is through your socks, but your soul isn't COMPLETELY dead to the point where you only wear solids in neutral colors, these Ice Pop Socks ($14, DOIY Design) are for you.  You can show them to all of your equally-depressed co-workers while everyone else is enjoying a day at the beach.

Make Par Not War T-Shirt 

Presidents have been criticized over and over again about how much time they spend on the golf course.  The press gave President Clinton shit about smoking cigars and putting from the rough. President Trump couldn't stop giving President Obama shit about the handful of times he went golfing over 8 years even though Trump is at one of his golf courses every goddamned weekend.  

But here's the thing: golf is supposed to be a very languid, relaxing experience.  There's a reason why old men play it (and also fall asleep watching it on their LayZboys). There are a million things to fight about, we shouldn't be fighting about something as boring as golf. Let's take golf back, collectively, by wearing this Make Par Not War T-Shirt ($35, LinkSoul).

Maki Socks 

There are people in this world who like sushi and then there are people in this world who LOVE sushi. The people who LOVE sushi are always trying to get you to drop $40 on a sushi lunch, dreaming of a trip to Japan, and trying to get their parents to not make a face at the mere mention of sashimi.

That's why any rawfishophiles is going to love these Maki Socks ($14, Uncommon Goods), which look like honest-to-goodness sushi rolls (they're also available in California or Tuna roll designs, seriously). This way, they can have sushi even when they're not having sushi.

Cloud Catcher 

We all use Q-Tips (literally in the way we're not supposed to—did you know you're not supposed to put Q-Tips in your ear?), but they're annoyingly hard to store.  The box they come in is unwieldy and often falls out of the cabinet, spilling them all over the floor.

That's why this adorable Cloud Catcher ($9, MoMA Design Store), specifically made for storing Q-Tips is so perfect for your bathroom decor.  It's functional while adding a little whimsy to your daily getting-ready routine, which is what we all need in the morning.  That, and coffee.  And more sleep.  Definitely more sleep.
