Collapsible Laundry Basket 

When you were growing up, presumably not in a big city, having a washer and dryer in your home wasn't considered a badge of honor or a sign that you "MADE IT," it was just a normal thing that literally everyone had. But then you moved to the city, and after having to lug 30 pounds of laundry to the laundromat, you realized that having a washer and dryer IN-UNIT was a sign that you made it.

Truth: if you live in New York City and have a washer and dryer in your actual apartment (I'm not talking about the creepy shared washer and dryers that populate a decent amount of New York's apartment buildings), it means that what you're paying in rent is an amount that would make the folks back home keel over and die, ergo, YOU'VE MADEEEEEEEE ITTTTTTT, even if it's the world's smallest washer and dryer set that can only handle a pillow case, a t-shirt, and one sock at a time.

That said, just because you have this precious amenity that people across all five boroughs would kill for doesn't mean you live in a palace. New York City apartments—even when tricked out with basic amenities—are small. That's why this Collapsible Laundry Basket ($40) is perfect for small spaces like your fancy ass (still miniscule) apartment.  It folds out to full size, but collapses flat so you can shove it wherever you have room for it (virually nowhere, but that's YOUR PROBLEM).

First of All T-Shirt 

For my fellow people in the NNR Club (the "never not riled" club, for the uninitiated), everyone in your orbit is constantly ready for you to launch into one of your signature Julia Sugarbaker-style rants.  Typically, they're humorous and entertaining—there are few people who can truly get torqued up by mudane things like slow walkers and people who talk loudly on their phones while on mass transit.  So, for the people who start sentences with "LISTEN" or "FIRST OF ALL," for those for whom no issue is too small to have a fierce, loud opinion about, this First of All T-Shirt ($28, Thug Life Shirts) is perfect.  Wear it loud and proud.

WeMo Mini SmartPlug 

If you dream of having a smart home but don't have the cash (or the patience) to completely wire everything in your house to operate with the touch of a button or the sound of your voice, we feel you.

But just because you're not completely "plugged in" doesn't mean you have to live life unplugged. This WeMo Mini Smart Plug connects to your home WiFi and allows you to control any appliance you plug into it with a free companion app. Read more on The Kitchn

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).

Function of Beauty Personalized Shampoo & Conditioner

There are a billion hair care products on the market, all promising amazing results for all different types of hair, but trying to pick out the right product is straight-up exhausting.  Do you have oily hair or frizzy hair?  Do you want your hair to smell like mangoes or a babbling mountain lake?  What's your bath time situation look like? Do you take quick, cold showers, or do you take long, hot showers where you cry softly because the running water muffles the sounds of your sobs from your family who's just outside the bathroom door?

IT'S ALL TOO MUCH. Good thing there's Function of Beauty, a company that concocts Personalized Shampoo & Conditioner ($36) just for you. They worked with MIT-trained engineers to come up with a hair quiz that spits out over 12 billion combinations, guaranteeing that no two shampoos or conditioners are the same.
