Dyson Airstrait Straightener

Dyson Airstrait Straightener

We all know Dyson knows a thing or two about air-purifying and vacuums, but who would’ve thought they would also love hair-styling as well? The latest hair styler from Dyson is this hot plate-free hair straightener, dubbed the Airstrait. By using hot air to straighten hair, the Airstrait reduces heat damage to your mane as opposed to when you a device with hot plates. The new styling device can style straight from wet hair, and it adapts its heat setting automatically. 

Hoka Tecton X 2 Sneakers

Hoka knows a thing or two about trail-running sneakers, so we’re going to bet money that its latest model, the Tecton X 2 is going to be a hit among the outdoorsy folk among us. Its Matryx upper is light and breathable, and it’ll repel water to keep your feet dry if you’re schlepping through puddles and mud. Like the brand’s running sneakers, these new kicks have parallel carbon fiber plates, designed to literally propel you forward, and the Vibram Megagrip outsole will make sure you stay on your feet and not on your ass.

Beats Studio Buds+ Earbuds

Beats Studio Buds + Earbuds

Beats’ latest is a re-imagined, updated take on its two-year-old Beats Studio Buds. Besides adding a “+” in the name, these new earbuds are completely transparent from the actual buds to the case. (You can also opt for the black or ivory colorways.) While the clear design doesn’t add much to the function, this new look does add some wow factor to what is a pretty great pair of sub-$200 headphones. Sharing a lot of tech from Apple AirPods Pros, since Apple owns Beats, these make a great budget alternative to those pricier earbuds. They have 36 hours of battery life, better active noise cancellation compared to the older model, and improved overall sound quality. Sadly, these don’t support wireless charging, so get your cables ready.

AeroPress Clear Coffee Maker

AeroPress Clear coffee maker

As much as we love the AeroPress, we always sort of wished it were clear. The java nerds over at the brand heard our (and many other user’s) calls, and released the AeroPress Clear, which retains everything good about the original model—like the way it makes some damn good coffee—and offers a clear contraption so you can more easily monitor your joe as it brews and make adjustments in real time. It’s still a great device for taking on the go, especially because of its shatterproof Tritan construction.

Ouai x DedCool Dedtergent

Ouai x DedCool Melrose Place Dedtergent

Ouai, a company known for its great-smelling grooming products, has entered the home space. Teaming up with the similarly LA-based DedCool, Ouai brought its signature scent, Melrose Place to DedCool’s Dedtergent (get the pun?). The eco-friendly, nontoxic, and biodegradable detergent is perfectly fine for use in the washing machine, but also a great option for hand washing your clothes. 

Boy Smells Farm to Candle Bundle

Boy Smells Farm to Candle trio

Farm to table? Nope, farm to candle. There’s a trend going on right now, and it involves food-scented candles. Boy Smells has captured a trio of food-oriented smells in its latest capsule collection, which includes Herbaceous, a spicy, grassy scent; Rinder, a watermelon-centric joint; and Snap, which captures a bunch of sweet green produce into one candle.

Purple Premium and Luxe Mattress Collections

Purple Rejuvenate mattress

Purple is taking its proprietary GelFlex grid mattress construction and applying it to its two new bed collections, the Premium—which encapsulates the Purple Restore, RestorePlus, and RestorePremier models—and the Luxe—which comprise the Purple Rejuvenate, RejuvenatePlus, and RejuvenatePremier models. Both of the new collections utilize the brand’s GelFlex grid, but add coils for added support. The Luxe line also happens to have added density and stability than the mattresses under the Premium line, hence the steeper price tags.

Clermont Steep Whiskey

Clermont Steep American Single Malt Whiskey

You (probably) know what scotch single malt whisky is, but fewer know what American single malt whiskey is. For both, it’s whiskey made from a 100% malted barley at one distillery, but with scotch single malt, there are more rules than there are with American single malt, which has basically no definition. With 227 years of whiskey-making experience, James B. Beam Distilling Co.—behind brands like Jim Beam and Booker’s—is entering the American single malt whiskey category for the first time with Clermont Steep, which was developed by Freddie Noe, the 8th generation master distiller of the Fred B. Noe Distillery. The five-year-old juice is distilled and aged in Clermont, Kentucky, using Beam family jug yeast, the same yeast that’s used in all Beam distillery products, which the brand says brings a sense of familiarity to this new whiskey. It’s toasty and bready, and it’s an excellent foray into new territory for the company. 

JBL Tour Pro 2 Earbuds

From Bluetooth speakers to surprisingly excellent cheap earbuds, JBL can’t lose. With its new Tour Pro 2, JBL is innovating earbuds in a way we’ve never seen before—the charging case is a touchscreen controller. The 1.45”-inch display (yes, it’s not very big) offers just enough space to let you control your earbuds, from switching on active noise cancellation and skipping or pausing songs to reading your phone’s notifications if your device is out of reach. Its built-in microphones make for some pretty good audio quality when it comes to phone calls, and with the charging case, the Tour Pro 2 earbuds offer 40 hours of battery life.

Crate and Barrel x Molly Baz Salt and Pepper Mills

Crate and Barrel x Molly Baz Wooden Salt and Pepper Mills

Molly Baz, former Bon Appétit staffer and current celebrity cook (as well as the author of Cook This Book), collaborated with Crate & Barrel on a collection of chef tools, all decked out in playful colorways and cute designs. From these unique salt and pepper mills to a two-tiered fruit basket, Molly Baz’s new line might convince you to close the Seamless app tonight and get into the kitchen.

Yeti Rambler Beverage Bucket

Yeti Rambler Beverage Bucket

Yeti’s Rambler series of tough-as-nails bottles and travel mugs is making way for an ice bucket, not unlike a super-sized version you’d find in a hotel for chilling champagne. The hefty container can hold at least six cans of beer or three bottles of wine, but if you set your mind to it, we’re sure you’ll be able to squeeze in even more.

Levoit Tower Fan

Levoit, a brand known for its big efficiency, low cost air purifiers, has released its first-ever tower fan just in time for the warmer days ahead. With 90-degree oscillation, four modes, and five fan speeds at your disposal, the fan is just enough to hold you over until it’s time to turn on the air conditioner.

The Maison Premiere Almanac,’ by Joshua Boissy, Krystof Zizka and Jordan Mackay

The Maison Premiere Almanac: Cocktails, Oysters, Absinthe, and Other Essential Nutrients for the Sensualist, Aesthete, and Flaneur Book

If you’re going to Brooklyn’s James Beard-awarded seafood restaurant and bar Maison Premiere, it’s either for the cocktails, oysters, or absinthe. And that’s all laid out very clearly in the subtitle of the restaurant’s new book, which documents the restaurant’s history alongside cocktail recipes and personal essays.

Bang & Olufsen Beosound A5 portable speaker

Bang & Olufsen Beosound A5 Portable Speaker

Luxury audio brand Bang & Olufsen’s new Beosound A5 portable speaker is a force to be reckoned with, packing four drivers and the most powerful woofer compared to any of the brand’s other Bluetooth speakers. Designed to resemble a picnic basket, with removable parts so that you can eventually swap out the parts down the line if they need tune-ups, it also boasts 12 hours of battery life and includes a very cool built-in wireless charging pad on top so your bops don’t stop just because your phone died. The A5 is also rated to IP65, so it’s dust-proof and water-resistant for pool-side hangs.

Omsom Saucy Noodle Sampler

Omsom saucy noodle sampler

For the uninitiated, Omsom is a brand of seasoning packets, which help home cooks incorporate authentic flavors from Asian countries like Thailand and Vietnam into their food with ease. For the first time, it’s branching outside of seasoning packets with a line of instant noodles (but trust that the sauce packets are still included). The noods cook in as little as four minutes and are currently available in four flavors: soy garlic, chili sesame, coconut lemongrass curry, and garlic black pepper. 

Steelcase Karman Office Chair

Steelcase Karman office chair

Steelcase’s newest addition to its office chair lineup is the Karman, its first mesh task chair. Surprisingly, it only has one point of manual adjustment, but that’s because the Karman is designed to respond to your body’s movements. The mesh itself is supportive and breathable, and it’s a great new option for those who have been holding out on retiring the horrible dining chair they’re using in their home office.

Helix Elite Mattress

Helix Midnight Elite mattress

Of all the mattresses we’ve tested, Helix’s Midnight Luxe is an all-time GQ staff favorite. But now Helix has topped itself with an even more premium Elite line of mattresses. The new collection features six models, varying in firmness levels, though a shared trait is that these are all the tallest mattresses we’ve ever seen, clocking in at 16 inches high. (The mattress is so thick that it comprises two pieces and has to ship in separate boxes. Modular, baby!) The brand claims that these are the most supportive mattresses they make, though we’ll have to see how it stacks up against our perennial top choice.

Adidas TERREX x National Geographic  Swift R3 GTX Sneakers

Adidas TERREX x National Geographic Swift R3 GTX

Adidas TERREX and Nat Geo have partnered up on a 16-piece collection of outdoor hiking gear which launched at the very tail end of last month. It’s anchored by these trail-ready hiking shoes that feature adventurer-beloved Gore-tex to keeps your feet dry and a grippy rubber outsole that provides traction even when the ground underneath is wet or your incline is a little treacherous. You have to sign up to become an Adidas member to cop these shoes, but it’s well-worth it since Adidas’ member-exclusive sale is pretty fire right now.

Humanscale Float Mini Desk

Humanscale Float mini desk

Tiny home dwellers who thought they couldn’t outfit their space with a desk have no excuse for working off their coffee table anymore. Humanscale’s latest sit-to-stand desk, the Float mini, has a minimal footprint with a height range of 27 to 45 inches. Now you just need to pair it with one of our favorite office chairs.


Our Place Always Pan 2.0

Our Place’s Always Pan is about as famous as a piece of cookware it can get (thanks to its highly ‘grammable appeal). The biggest problem with it, however, is that it can’t be used in the oven. Now, the company’s phased out its OG model for the Always Pan 2.0, which allows cooks to hone their baking skills. The 2.0 takes the same accessories you love, but upgrades the pan itself with a new non-stick surface made with a Thermakind material that’s durable and ovenproof up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit: all of which only costs $5 more than the original.

Moccamaster KM5 Burr Grinder

Moccamaster KM5 Burr Grinder

Moccamaster makes one of our favorite coffee machines, and we never expected this nearly 59-year-old company to enter a new product category so late in the game. The KM5 is the brand’s first foray into burr coffee grinders. The new device holds up to 100 grams of coffee, and because it’s a stepless model, the user can fine-tune the grind size to whatever brewing method they prefer.

Aesop Gloam eau de parfum

Aesop Gloam eau de parfum

Aesop’s latest scent, Gloam, has arrived just in time for spring. While fall and winter calls for heavier scents, the new eau de parfum brings something a little lighter—with floral and jasmine notes—in addition to some spice, like hints of pepper, to keep things interesting.

Ember Travel Mug 2

Anyone who finds that their coffee is always getting colder faster than they can drink it will know Ember for its temperature-regulating mugs (your hot beverage stays hot for as long as you want—or as long as the battery lasts). The Travel Mug lets you bring your hot bevvy on the go, keeping it at your desired temperature for a whopping three hours. And for the clumsy person among us, the mug works with Apple’s Find My network, just in case you’re prone to leaving your things behind.

Casper The Casper

Casper’s going back to its roots with a reimagining of the mattress that made it famous. Its revamped Casper original is the brand’s most affordable bed, though it’s maintained some of its most premium features so sleepers don’t feel like they’re missing out just because they’re spending less. The mattress uses various layers of foam to help with things like regulating heat and preventing sinkage. As always, it’s also backed by the brand’s impressive 100-day trial period.

Casper Snow 

Whether it’s winter or summer, hot sleepers just can’t catch a break. Casper’s Snow mattress hopefully offers those folks some relief. This hybrid mattress utilizes Casper’s “Snow Technology,” which is meant to pull away excess heat from the body, combined with a cool-to-the-touch outer layer. While foam is notorious for trapping heat, Casper’s version is optimized to increase airflow so you don’t wake up in a pool of your own sweat.

Areaware Chrome Stacking Planter

Areaware chrome stacking planter

Areaware’s infamous stacking planter gets the chrome treatment this week with a new chromed-out version designed by Chen Chen & Kai Williams. The planter looks like a singular piece, but its base ring is actually a saucer to collect excess water (for the over-waterer in all of us). 

Eminence Pineapple Refining Tonique 

Eminence pineapple refining tonique

Not all exfoliators need a physical exfoliant to scrub away head skin. In the case of Eminence’s new toner, the brand is utilizing the naturally occurring chemical exfoliants in pineapple (otherwise known as fruit alpha hydroxy acids) to help slough away the stuff on your face that shouldn’t be there. It’s also an excellent hydrating toner to help you move onto the next step of your skincare routine. The new tonique is part of Eminence’s new tropical superfood line, which also includes a booster powder you add to your existing moisturizer and a solid body oil for staying hydrated all over.

Natasha Pickowicz x Jono Pandolfi More Than Cake

Natasha Pickowicz x Jono Pandolfi More Than Cake serving set

Jono Pandolfi, the brand behind some of our favorite dinnerware sets, teamed up with pastry chef Natasha Pickowicz on a splendid new cake-serving set. You’ll find the brand’s seven-inch plates decked out in bright, vibrant colors that don’t add extra flavor to what you’re eating but sure make it much prettier to look at. (The colors are also a callback to Pickowicz’ More Than Cake cover.)

Glenfiddich Grand Yozakura 

Glenfiddich Grand Yozakura 29 year old single malt scotch whisky

While every whiskey brand has seemingly been eyeing the rare Japanese mizunara cask to age their juice, Glenfiddich had its sights on the even-more-rare Japanese Awamori casks. The 29-year-old end result is by no means a cheap or affordable product, but it is a worthwhile, special occasion scotch, with notes of dried fruit, butterscotch, and a seemingly never-ending finish.

Neighbor Mesa

Neighbor’s latest release is an excellent complement to its GQ-approved backyard sofas and other outdoor furniture. The Mesa fire table, made of concrete and lava rocks, will be the focal point of your backyard (given you have the space for it). When it’s not keeping you warm on chilly nights, a teak cover helps the Mesa double as a coffee table.

Target x Hilton Carter plants

Target x Hilton Carter 15-inch artificial Monstera plant

Plant enthusiast Hilton Carter is back at Target with a new 30-product collection of all things green and alive (and all the accessories that go with it). This go-around finds a new selection of faux foliage—from the ever-popular Monstera to the trailing string of pearls—and planters for your new green friend, whether they go inside or out. 

Grey Goose Bottled Martini

Grey Goose classic martini cocktail

You can put the barware down and skip the trip to your local watering hole. Vodka brand Grey Goose now makes a bottled martini. Combining the eponymous vodka, some dry French vermouth, and a dash of orange bitters, the bottle holds up to eight cocktails—and all you have to do is make sure you give it a proper chill before serving.

Gantri Word Table Light

GQ award-winning brand Gantri, which makes 3D-printed lamps from plant-based materials, works with a seemingly endless roster of designers who create modern minimalist shapes across the brand’s line of floor, table, and wall lamps. One of its most popular designs was the Word table light, released in 2019, but was discontinued after the lamp’s designer, Dims., went out of business. Now, the popular lamp is back, this time designed by Seoul-based Studio Word. It’s an epic sculptural piece that is as much a functional item as it is a truly excellent piece of home decor.

Hoka x Bodega Tor Ultra Hi

Bodega and Hoka One One’s latest is a hiking-ready boot that’s waterproof (thanks to its Gore-tex exterior), super-slip resistant (courtesy of a Vibram Megagrip outsole), and extra easy on the eyes (largely due to its handsome eggplant colorway). It’s easy to pull on and off with the addition of speed hooks, and if you’re one of the lucky few who wears a size 13 or 14, you can get this shoe in the low-top version.

Gravity Move Massager

Gravity Move heated mini massager

Weighted blanket brand Gravity just released its first massage gun, and now it’s following up on that success with a more portable option, the Move. It’s only slightly more travel-friendly than the original massager, and it includes two fewer interchangeable applicators. The Move also has a heated applicator, like its predecessor, as well as four intensity levels and a 10-minute timer function.

Ami Ami Boxed Wine

Ami Ami “The Duo’ box wine set

Boxed wine is cool. No, we swear. It’s come a long way since the cheap stuff you drank in college. Started by the co-founder of the low-ABV spirit brand Haus (RIP), Ami Ami is a new boxed wine brand that’s offering a red and white option—a syrah and a sauvignon blanc blend—made with French grapes. One box is the equivalent of two standard bottles of wine, and the juice stays fresh for up to six weeks after opening. 

Crate and Barrel Batten Outdoor Collection

Crate and Barrel Batten teak outdoor loveseat

Looking for outdoor furniture? Crate and Barrel is always a great place to start. And now you have an extra collection to explore from the retailer: the Batten line. If that name sounds familiar to you (and you happen to follow Crate and Barrel very closely), that’s because Batten used to encompass a range of indoor modular storage. Now, it’s a wood-centric outdoor line, which includes various sofas, a dining set, and kitchen furniture. Each piece features a slatted wood motif, and it offers a breezy and naturalistic aesthetic to your backyard, patio, or whatever outdoor space you have.

Branch Duo Standing Desk

Branch’s latest standing desk, the Duo, offers those who have been working from home yet another reason to ditch the dining table for a proper workspace. The standing desk, which comes in two sizes to accommodate even the smallest homes, has a 20-inch adjustment range and overall clean look. Branch offers four finishes for the top, while the legs come in either black or white. For those trying to trick out their desk, they can opt for a few add-ons like a desk drawer or cable organizer (for extra money, of course).

Ruby Sparkling Hibiscus

Ruby hibiscus organic fuji apple sparkling water (12-pack)

Ruby’s sparkling hibiscus water is like drinking a soda, minus the loads of sugar and without having to go for the diet stuff. The brand, which originally started with a still hibiscus water, has two new flavors to add to its sparkling range: fuji apple and berry cherry. The waters have a distinct tartness to them, because of the hibiscus, and they’re just sweet enough to curb sugar cravings without supremely spiking your glucose levels.

Sanus Speaker Stands

Sanus speaker stand for Sonos Era 100

Whenever Sonos has a new speaker to launch, Sanus is right behind with some wall mounts and speaker stands. It’s no different with the recent release of the Sonos Era 100 and Era 300 speakers, both of which are in good company with Sanus’ new accessories. They’re easy to set up, and they give your speakers the optimal listening height for your next movie night (or solo dance session).

Tekla x SSENSE

SSENSE x Tekla pyjama shirt

Tekla continues to be one of fashion’s favorite pajama brands (as well as ours), and its new collection with SSENSE might be one of our favorites. The collab finds a bunch of patchwork options across pajama shirts, shorts, and robes, and if we needed any more excuse to be cozy, this would be it.


Master & Dynamic MH40 Wireless Headphones (2nd generation)

Master & Dynamic MH40 wireless (2nd generation)

Master & Dynamic makes a damn fine pair of headphones, both in terms of looks and sound, but things can always get better. The brand re-released its popular MH40 wireless headphones with a suite of even better specs, like a longer battery life, boosted acoustics, and improved call quality.

Ikea Vappeby 

Ikea Vappeby portable Bluetooth speaker

Ikea’s not exactly known for being a tech brand, but its ongoing expansion into speakers and air purifiers shows that the Swedish furniture gods are ready to put their stamp on the gadgets and gizmos space, too. Ikea’s new $15 (yep, you heard that right!) Bluetooth speaker boasts some surprisingly good stats despite its dirt-cheap price tag. The Vappeby has a whopping 80-hour battery life, and comes IP67-rated for water- and dust-resistance. Plus, you can pair a couple together for bigger sound. We’re not sure how the quality stacks up to our favorite Bluetooth speakers just yet, but we’ll find out soon.

Brooklinen Laundry Care

Brooklinen the complete clean bundle

Brooklinen’s award-winning sheets, cozy sleepwear, and bathroom linens can now be freshened up with a spin cycle featuring the brand’s new laundry care line. From detergent to reusable dryer balls and stain removers, the cleaning supplies feature plant-based ingredients for a gentle clean. Each detergent comes in two scents—dream clean or herbal clean—as well as an unscented option.

Eleven Madison Home Beverage Collection

Eleven Madison Home the bar box

Following Via Carota’s entry into the ready-made cocktail kit space (which we’ve detailed below), Eleven Madison Park, or “EMP” as the foodies like to call it, is bringing its top-notch drinks menu to your home—no reservation necessary. With the Eleven Madison Home beverage collection, you can mix up top-notch botanical mocktails at home courtesy of six plant-based, nonalcoholic mixers—flavored with pear, pomegranate, mandarin, green poblano, red currant, and pumpkin seed—plus bitters and bar snacks, all created with EMP’s beverage director Sebastian Tollius. 

Bang & Olufsen x Ssense Beoplay A9 

Bang & Olufsen x Ssense Beoplay A9 speaker

SSENSE features an unbelievably well-curated selection of non-clothing items in its Everything Else section, where you’ll find a brand spanking new speaker produced in collaboration with Bang & Olufsen. The two brands worked together to customize B&O’s popular A9 speaker with details inspired by SSENSE’s Montreal store, namely its grey colorway and concrete accents.

Unbound Merino Active 

Unbound active merino t-shirt

Merino wool is known for its temperature-regulating properties (which you might equate with warmth if you’re rocking it in winter), but it’s also a damn good material for tackling sweaty workouts, too, thanks to its natural moisture-wicking properties. See for yourself with this new activewear collection from the merino wool specialists at Unbound which includes a tee, tank top, and shorts. 

The Citizenry Made-to-Order Furniture

If you’re looking to spruce up your bedroom setup, you may want to check out The Citizenry’s new made-to-order line of custom furniture that features three sleek new bed frames that shoppers can customize down to the wood, fabrics, and leathers—so it’ll never look like anyone else’s on the ‘gram. 

Hims Dandruff Detox Shampoo

Hims dandruff detox shampoo

Hims has been in the hair loss prevention game for a minute, and now it wants to help you tackle your dandruff problem. Its new pyrithione zinc-enhanced shampoo is formulated by dermatologists to prevent itching and flaking. and comes enhanced with a refreshing mint smell so you can emerge from a shower smelling and feeling clean.  

Quince Mongolian Cashmere Cotton Bedding

Quince Mongolian cashmere cotton duvet cover set

Add a touch of luxury to you sleeping setup: Quince’s newest bed sheets feature 5% Mongolian cashmere for softness and breathability, while the cotton blend keeps everything relatively affordable.

On Cloudsurfer

On’s revamped Cloudsurfer running shoe finds one of the brand’s original sneakers getting a new look and a fresh midsole called Cloudtec Phase. With the new midsole, the shoe is now even lighter—clocking in around eight ounces—while reducing the amount of materials that go into the sneaker. The Cloudsurfer is more apt for neutral runners (sorry, overpronators) and anyone who prefers their stride to be extra cushioned.

More Cool New Stuff

Check out all the other cool releases from the weeks and months prior.

Ikea x Marimekko Bath Sheet Collab

Ikea x Marimekko Bastua bath sheet

Out of left field comes Ikea’s collection, Bastua, made in collaboration with Marimekko. With items ranging from towels to actual furniture, Bastua is “inspired by nature and the self-care rituals of the Nordic sauna,” Ikea explains. Marimekko’s famous patterns and prints are on full display within the collection, with prices ranging from $3 to $85.

Gentle Monster x Maison Margiela Sunglasses

Gentle Monster x Maison Margiela MM005 01 sunglasses

One look at the arms of Gentle Monster’s new frames, and you’ll know they’re Margiela. The blank tag silhouette is a dead giveaway. With a goggle-like appearance—that, we’d dare say, is a bit bug-like—the frames are just one of the many that the South Korean eyewear brand collaborated on with the fashion house.

Burrow Outdoor Collection

Burrow Relay outdoor 3-seat sofa

Burrow has entered the outdoor furniture chat. The brand known for helping popularize the whole sofa-in-a-box concept is still doing sofas in a box, but this time for the outdoors. Actually, there’s a whole range of outdoor furniture, from dining table sets to a coffee table, all while retaining the brand’s popular mid-century modern aesthetic and ease of assembly.

Hodinkee x Globe-Trotter Watch Case

Hodinkee x Globe-Trotter three-watch case

If you’re one of those people who bring more than one watch on a trip, you’ll appreciate Hodinkee’s latest Globe-Trotter collaboration. The three-watch case features leather accents and a distinct Globe-Trotter look, part of which is why we named the brand’s carry-on as one of our favorites. The interior tray is removable, and underneath is storage for extra straps and whatever other watch-centric gear you’ll need on your trip.

Liquid Death Iced Tea

Liquid Death iced black tea (8-pack)

Liquid Death’s aggro branding has clearly been working because it’s gotten people to drink more water (while touting a cool $700 million valuation). The latest release from the canned water brand is, well, not exactly water. Instead, we have three iced teas—available in Armless Palmer (a take on an Arnold Palmer), Rest in Peach (a peach-flavored iced tea), and Grim Leafer (just a classic iced tea)—all of which are dosed with caffeine, sweetened with agave, and packing 30 calorie. Oh, and they’re all packed with vitamin B for some reason, which is just spectacular. 

Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen Body SPF40

Supergoop Unseen sunscreen body SPF40

Our favorite face sunscreen is now available for your whole body. Supergoop reformulated its Unseen sunscreen, named because it feels and looks like you’re not wearing sunscreen, so that it’s more gel-like and primed for use on your body. 

Vitamix Propel Series Blender

Vitamix Propel series 510

When you think of blenders, you probably think of Vitamix. The only thing holding you back from getting one of the best blenders in the biz is the price. But now Vitamix offers the Propel series of blenders, which includes the under-$500 510 model. It has variable speed and pulse controls, as well as three presets for smoothies, hot soups, and frozen desserts. For a bigger and more feature-packed option, there’s the Propel series 750, which is essentially the same as the smaller 510 but with a seven-year warranty and a preset for dips and spreads.

De’Longhi TrueBrew Drip Coffee Maker

De’Longhi TrueBrew drip coffee maker

Do you have a barista on call? No, we didn’t think so. But TrueBrew sort of makes it feel like you do. The new coffee maker from De’Longhi, which was able to score Brad Pitt for its marketing campaign, features a built-in conical burr grinder, which grinds and doses the exact amount of beans you need for one of five brew styles—light, gold, bold, espresso-style, and iced—in one of six sizes. The machine even turns those spent grounds in easy-to-dispose coffee pucks, like something you’d find in an espresso machine’s portafilter, to make cleanup a breeze.

Oxo Good Grips Refrigerator Organization Set  

Oxo Good Grips 8-piece refrigerator organization set

Let’s be honest, your fridge could use a good cleaning and some re-organization. Sure, we don’t actually know what your refrigerator looks like, but we know most of you agree. Oxo’s new line of refrigerator organizers will keep the inside of your fridge neat and maximize every space so you can cram even more snacks in there.

Peak Design Tech Pouch

The worst thing about travel might not be the airport horror stories or the jet lag. It might actually be the fact that you have to carry all your tech gear around. The ongoing terror of losing any of your charging cables or breaking something (by accident our through pure frustration) in a TSA line is never a fun start to a vacation. Luckily, Peak Design’s new tech pouch features an accordion-style design so that your cables, cords, and chargers all stay neat and tidy to give you one less thing to worry about on your next trip.

Aesop Aromatique Incense

Aesop Kagerou Aromatique incense

Aesop is in the business of smelling good. Now the brand has a trio of incense—available in a woody Sarashina scent, herbaceous Kagerou, or spicy Sarashina—to complement its existing range of candles. And if you have money to spare (and don’t love the pumice incense holder included), Aesop also crafted a $210 bronze incense holder.


Veja Fitz Roy

Veja wants you to get out there. The eco-friendly brand has expanded its lineup of shoes with a new hiking silhouette, the Fitz Roy, that’s primed to conquer the great outdoors. It’s made of a new durable technical material called Trek-Shell coupled with recycled polyester, then topped off with a water-repellent finish so a little rain won’t affect your stride. 

Saucony Endorphin Elite

Saucony’s latest runner, the Endorphin Elite, is the brand’s fastest shoe to date. The fifth model in the Endorphin lineup, the Elite is primed for road racing. Everything about this sneaker—from the carbon plate to its aggressive Speedroll for forward propulsion—is designed to help push you farther, faster, and with as little effort as possible. 

Dior by Mystery Ranch Saddle Bag

Dior by Mystery Ranch saddle bag

Mystery Ranch is not a brand you’d expect to see on the runway at a fashion show, but at Dior’s Summer 2023 menswear showing, it made a surprise cameo. Though it’s not exactly a high-fashion brand, Mystery Ranch is still beloved for its ruggedness and durability, which is why Dior’s artistic director Kim Jones linked up with the brand to pay homage to Christian Dior’s love of gardening. The collaboration includes a Dior spin on Mystery Ranch’s Gallagator backpack, as well as a Mystery Ranch spin on Dior’s saddle bag (among other pieces like a belt and zippered wallet). 

Huckberry X Mystery Ranch 2 Day Assault 27-Liter Backpack

Huckberry X Mystery Ranch 2 Day Assault 27-liter backpack

And because a Dior and Mystery Ranch bag might be out of some folks’ price range, you might consider scooping something from Mystery Ranch’s ongoing collaboration with Huckberry instead. This exclusive colorway of the 2-Day Assault bag comes decked out in camo, and stocks a hefty 27 liters of stuff in its innards. It’s also designed to ensure equal weight distribution and can securely hold a laptop up to 15 inches if you’re hauling your tech into the wilderness.

Baratza Encore ESP 

Baratza Encore ESP coffee grinder

We will forever love the Baratza Encore coffee grinder, and if didn’t think we could love it anymore, the brand added an “ESP” to the end of the name, re-engineered some of the moving parts, and created a coffee grinder that can truly do it all. And by “do it all,” we mean the Encore ESP can grind coffee for both regular brewing methods—drip, pour-over, etc.—and espresso. The ESP retains the original’s 40 grind settings, except this new model focuses the first 20 grind settings on espresso-sized grounds while the larger 20 grind settings get you every other iteration of drip coffee that you could need (like a beefier cold brew consistency). Plus, there’s a dosing cup to help you easily and cleanly transport your grounds to your portafilter like a true barista.

The suitcases are only currently available in two colors, black and tan, but those should be neutral enough to please most people.
