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.

18 Awesome Gifts for Everyone 

Around this time of year, you start getting inundated with gift guides in nearly every magazine, website, or social media feed you happen to be looking at.  Each one promises all of the answers to what you’re looking for—which is, of course, to find gifts that your loved ones will like without having to put too much thought or effort (or hard-earned cash) into it.  Right?  We see you.

When reading those gift guides, though, you inevitably find something you know [insert family member here] will like, only to click on it and find that it costs $475. Who spends $475 on a scarf? you wonder.  Why would The New York Times gift guide do this to me? They know I don’t even pay for a subscription to their website.

Sure, fancy product round-ups can be aspirational (that’s what every buyer’s guide in magazines like Vanity Fair is), but this time of year, you’re actually using these guides to find stuff to buy, without, you know, having to take out a second mortgage on your home.

Never fear—we’ve put together a list of 18 great gifts that will hopefully help check off multiple people on your shopping list, all priced at under $150. Read it on Parade.

Lego Boost 

If you want to give your kid a surefire skill she'll need to excel in any career she might pursue in 15-20 years, teach her how to code. "But my daughter's only 7," you'll say.  "Shouldn't I just buy her a doll or something?" NOPE.  Trust—when America becomes the United States of Facebook, you'll be really glad you invested in this Lego Boost Set ($160, LEGO), which features over 800 pieces that your kid can use to build whatever she can think up, and a companion app that teaches basic coding that will allow her to bring her creations to life, even making them move and talk. Net/net: if the robots are going to take over, you'll be glad to have a kid that knows how to build an control them, right?  Now THAT'S a smart investment.
