L.A. Burdick Chocolates
Dark Chocolate Rocher Nest With Eggs
All natural and preservative free, L.A. Burdick Chocolates’s Rocher Nest with Eggs features dual layer gourmet chocolate flair.

Inside, the chocolatier includes five eggs featuring dark, milk, and white chocolate, including hazelnut praline, banana-honey caramel and raspberry white chocolate ganache fillings. There are flavors for everyone here, and it’s been made with the utmost care, from a brand celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.

Beat Waist Bag
A less sporty, yet decidedly athleisure version of the fanny pack, Porter’s Beat Bag is made from once-washed cotton canvas and comes in a subtle beige colorway.

A Tribe Called Quest
We Got it From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service
A Tribe Called Quest’s first album in 18 years We Got it From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service was released late 2016 but still feels (like all of their records) super-fresh after countless listens. Featuring the likes of André 3000, Kendrick Lamar, Jack White, Elton John and more, it’s diverse and boasts seamless production across all 16 tracks. Of course, the group’s beloved, now-deceased member Phife Dawg makes a posthumous appearance.

Measuring the standard 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches, the cards feature 15 original hand-drawn portraits.

Norden + Cody Hudson
Black Linen Tea Towel
SoCal-based home goods purveyor Norden, run by a husband and wife duo, really excels at the artist collaboration: from a new zig-zag shaped candle made with A Question of Eagles (that smells like the Angeles National Forest) to this simple yet striking Belgian linen tea towel designed by Chicago-based artist Cody Hudson (aka Struggle Inc). Norden’s selection may be small but each item on offer is created with heirloom quality in mind.

Made from bamboo fiber, wood fiber, cornstarch and PET resin, this composter is, itself, biodegradable. Still durable, it’s dishwasher-safe and thanks to a thick carbon filter, it keeps the fragrance fresh—so your kitchen won’t end up smelling funky. Unlike so many others compost bins, this one also features a likable design—almost reminiscent of a teapot. There’s really no excuse not to start composting and treating the world a little better.

Krewe du Optic
Krewe du Optic has released yet another striking style that blends geometric shapes with a decidedly retro feel. The Ward might have subdued black matte frames (made from titanium) but the unexpected shape and bright blue reflective lenses make them an eye-catching accessory.

Claire Norcross and Marie-Laure Giroux
Designers Claire Norcross and Marie-Laure Giroux have returned with their third iteration of Plumen, an exquisite low energy LED bulb in hybrid lamp form. At the core of the bulb, a faceted gold element yields warm, omnidirectional light. At its center, pointing downward, a central spotlight shines with the equivalent of 60 watts (though using only 6.5). A second, atmospheric tone extends everywhere else, delivering true light texture. With 10,000 guaranteed glowing hours, it’s a functional design delight.

“Hear Me Roar” Bag
Beautifully hand-beaded, this clutch (and others by the brand) are made by a team of some 200 craftspeople in Lebanon—all of whom are prisoners, ex-prisoners or underprivileged women. Syrian-born founder Sarah Beydoun wanted to make a brand that would function not just as a label, but also a social enterprise. This particular clutch is a new favorite and is both pretty and powerful—a killer combination.

Folding Chopstick Basket
Employing red and brown single use chopsticks, designer Bryan Parks has found an extended application for the traditionally disposable item: a folding basket. When open, the basin measures 13.5″ by 12″ with four inches of depth. After use, it folds flat. Of course there’s functional value here, but perhaps the conversation-starting uncommon design impresses us the most.

Paying homage to the 1988 movie and all bossed-up women, this 100% cotton, adjustable cap keeps it simple. Embroidered with the words “Working Girls,” it’s part of the eponymous Cincinnati-based label’s spring 2017 collection.
