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.

Taco Booties

If you have a baby, it's important to start indoctrinating your mini-me when they're young.  Do you think a three-year-old girl decided that she likes Nirvana on her own?  Nope.  It's because Nirvana is dad's favorite band, and that three-year-old girl thinks everything that dad likes is awesome (at least for the next 7-9 years).

So, if you're really into Mexican food and want your kid to enthusiastically embrace everything that Taco Tuesday provides, start 'em young, namely with these adorable Taco Booties ($25, Uncommon Goods). They'll be the hit of any Mexican restaurant you frequent, and you better believe they're Cinco de Mayo appropriate. Que linda!

Malvaux Number 1 Knife 


Back in the day, you used to have outdoorsy guys and indoorsy guys.  The two were ardently different. One guy would spend his weekends fishin' and hikin' and actively removing the "g's" off of words, while the other guy would go to nice restaurants and bars, and maybe an art museum, where he pretended to understand oil paintings for an afternoon while wearing a collared shirt.

But now—thanks to hipsters, mostly—those two types of guys have merged, which is why you'll see dudes hiking in $250 flannel shirts or buying $600 axes (which they will never actually use, by the way). Yes, the "cabin porn" industry is on the rise, and these dudes are soaking it right up.

That's why, in addition to the expensive flannels and axes, we have this—admittedly beautiful—Malvaux Number 1 Knife, which boasts a $250 price tag (you read that right).  This ain't your grandfather's Swiss Army Knife, by any stretch, but the guy you're buying it for is nothing like this grandfather anyway.
