With Amazon Aware, You Can Feel Less Guilty About Shopping on Amazon

While its name may bring to mind the lungs of the Earth, Amazon isn’t exactly known for its positive impact on the environment. From an excess of packaging to selling products of unknown origin, Amazon has long been a top contributor to a more polluted world. In 2020, Amazon disclosed that its carbon footprint went up 19 percent, year over year.

The e-tailer has since committed to change through its operations, hoping to hit net-zero carbon by 2040. And in its efforts to achieve that, Amazon has launched a new eco-friendly brand encompassing items from home goods to clothing and beauty.

Aware, the new sustainable brand from Amazon, features items that are part of the Climate Pledge Friendly program, which means they’ve all received third-party certifications that verify that they meet sustainable standards. These standards vary by the type of product, so organic materials are actually organic and beauty products are free of harmful chemicals. Each of the items in the Aware line featured a helpful little badge to denote their candidacy for the program, and when you go to a specific product page, you can find the exact certifications for that item.

The new line features a lot of products, so we sifted through the selections to find some stuff you may want to add to cart immediately.

The Harness Designed to Let Your Dog Be as Active as You Are

When you’re getting active, it’s obvious that you need full range-of-motion and comfortable gear. The same applies to your dog — especially if you’re bringing your dog along for activities like canicross, bikejoring and skijoring. When it comes to getting active with your dog, whether you’re running for miles or simply heading out for casual hike, it’s hard to top Non-stop dogwear’s Freemotion harness. Originally prototyped all the way back in 2006 (and consistently tested and used by world-leading athletes), the Freemotion harness is designed to let your dog unleash their full potential. The Freemotion harness is unique in that it’s designed for activities with a high pulling point — like biking, running or skiing —evenly distributing the pull force across your dog’s body without adding strain on the spine. Crafted with a Y-shaped front, this pulling harness overall is meant to give your dog unrestricted movement through the shoulders, while keeping airways unrestricted. In the spirit of getting out and being active, the Freemotion harness is constructed out of tightly woven nylon (with a cell foam base to prevent water soaking into the harness) and trimmed in reflective 3M for all-conditions visibility.

The task chair was designed to look good but also to be a comfortable place to sit for long hours, which is basically what everyone is looking for in an office chair these days. This could explain why Fritz Hansen is relaunching the Oxford chair with a few modern upgrades. The new Oxford chair comes in either a low or tall option for its backrest, as well as an upgraded tilt mechanics and adjustable seat height, angled armrests so the chair can fit under desks and a number of upholstery options to suit everyone’s taste.

Every Kitchen Should Have These Small Appliances

Whether you’re a renter or a homeowner, you almost certainly have a kitchen in your place of residence. And a kitchen means the opportunity to expand your culinary horizons, be that as simple as tweaking a classic favorite — like spicing up a box of mac ‘n’ cheese with some roasted broccoli and buffalo sauce — or developing your own array of from-scratch recipes.

But, even if you have a top-notch range (AKA a stovetop-oven combo) in your kitchen, there are plenty of other cooking-centric devices you might want and/or need in order to take full advantage of your dietary adventures, especially in the age of internet recipe blogs and social media food-sharing. It’s with all of this in mind and more that we’ve rounded up a collection of small kitchen appliance essentials that every foodie should own, plus a few worthy examples of each.

Blenders

Once thought of solely as beverage makers, blenders have become an incredibly valuable and versatile kitchen appliance. Yes, they’re still exceptional for making smoothies, but they can also be used to craft sauces, dips and — with a little creativity — seemingly-stranger things like ice cream or bread dough. With all of that on the table, it’s easy to see why you might want one on your counter.

Coffee Grinders

There are actually numerous reasons you might want to consider buying yourself a coffee grinder. The biggest of those reasons, however, is that they give you far more control over your coffee, especially in the realms of freshness, flavor and even style (meaning you can choose your own grind, be that extra coarse for cold brew or ultra-fine for a ristretto shot). If you’ve got a bean juice addiction, this should be near the top of your list of must-have small kitchen appliances.

Coffee Makers

If you’re going to make your own coffee at home and you don’t want to deal with the more labor-intensive styles, like pour-over and/or french press, you’ll certainly want your own coffee maker, if even just for occasional convenience. However, there are legions of sub-par options out there that are cheaply built and limited as to what you can do with them. Instead of wasting your money, take stock of what you want out of a coffee maker and invest in a good-quality option that can make that happen.

Electric Grills

Backyard barbecues can be immensely enjoyable, but the required fuels (especially charcoal and wood) and the particulate matter they produce don’t translate very well to indoor usage. But if you’re dead-set on grilling even in inclement weather, an electric grill is a great workaround and a means of expanding your kitchen’s versatility. Whether you like grilled veggies or flat-top bacon and eggs, these devices will get the job done right.

Food Processors

For certain types of foods and recipes, hand-cutting, -chopping, -dicing and -slicing is absolutely necessary. But if you’re making something where the ingredients are more integrated — as can be seen in everything from purees to patties, sauces to salsas and everything in-between — then a food processor is a handy means of saving you time and effort. Furthermore, while blenders can pulverize most foodstuffs (especially the industrial options), they often lack the finesse and versatility of food processors.

Fryers

The job of air fryers can be done just as well by convection ovens. While we believe that to be the truth, the popularity of air frying over the last two years has made dedicated tabletop fryers more accessible and approachable, especially from a price standpoint. If you don’t care about the other things a convection oven can do, a fryer could be the right investment, especially if you want to attempt to somewhat sidestep the health issues around oil-heavy deep frying without missing out on the satisfying crunch.

Mixers

An integral part of all things baking, mixers of both the hand and stand varieties are a practical necessity when it comes to making bread, pastries and so much more. The style you choose will largely be dependent upon your budget, counter/storage space and level of patience. But we’d highly suggest that all foodies keep one on hand; you never know when you’ll have a craving for some home-baked sourdough and you’ll find it far more difficult to make without a mixer.

Multicookers

Colloquially misnomered as Instant Pots (a brand-item association similar to how adhesive bandages are often called Band-Aids), multicookers are remarkably versatile, relatively small kitchen appliances that are exceptional for single-pot meals like stews, soups and casseroles. They can also be used to make rice, baked goods and intrepid chefs have even experimented with using them to cook steaks and whole chickens. You might actually find it easier trying to figure out what can’t be made in one, rather than charting the exhaustive list of what can.

Immersion Blenders

Designed to be, you guessed it, immersed in liquid-heavy foods — like soups, stews and even dips and spreads — this style of device offers a more convenient and less messy means of blending mixtures, especially when they’re already inside their cooking vessel. For instance, if you’re making a soup and you want it to be a bit thicker, you might add in some more ingredients after you’ve already started cooking it in your multicooker. Well, an immersion blender will let you blend those new ingredients without removing the entire soup from the pot. This is especially crucial for foods that need to be mixed while cooking, like egg-based recipes.

Immersion Circulators

Not to be confused with immersion blenders, immersion circulators are made to be submerged in liquids and will gently and (more importantly) evenly heat said liquids and maintain a constant temperature. This is best exemplified in sous vide cooking, which is admittedly a bit buzz-worthy but also boasts benefits like better consistency and precision (this can be very important when cooking meats), lower energy consumption and even a higher degree of food safety.

Toasters & Tabletop Ovens

Toast is an undeniable staple of the worldwide culinary world, especially where breakfast is concerned. And while you could get a simple standard toaster (the kind with vertical bread slots and a push-down activation lever), we’d suggest expanding your horizons into the realm of toaster ovens or even tabletop convection ovens, the latter of which can also be used to air fry your food. This is an expansive category and there’s no single right answer for everyone, but a toaster is certainly one of the most crucial small kitchen appliances.

The We-Vibe Chorus Couple’s Toy Proves the Best Pleasure Is a Shared Experience

We-Vibe knows that when it comes to sex, the best intimacy is a shared experience between partners. That thinking has shaped the We-Vibe Chorus, a toy designed to give couples a shared pleasure, from stimulation to a simultaneous orgasm. Engineered to provide a custom fit, the We-Vibe Chorus’ double-hinged, C-shape design can be bent and tweaked to comfortably fit both partners, staying in place during sex or used in solo play. The unique “Squeeze remote” makes the Chorus especially intuitive. Changing the intensity or vibration of the Chorus only takes a slight squeeze; the tighter you grip the more intense the reaction. Completely waterproof and customizable with connectivity to the We-Connect app, this is a toy that couples can use virtually anywhere without missing a beat. Even better, if you’re looking spice up someone’s holiday gift list, We-Vibe is offering 20 percent off the Chorus from November 24 through December 3.

The 10 Best New Home Products of 2022

This story is part of the GP100, our list of the 100 best new products of the year. Read the introduction to the series here, and stay tuned for more lists like it throughout the month.

If last year’s list of the best new products for your home highlighted performance above all else, this year’s list is the embodiment of comfort.

Take Seth Rogen’s striking new weed label, Houseplant. Oh, and Nebia’s affordable, water-saving spa showerhead. And lest we forget Solo Stove’s great looking new line of firepits, that are hotter and less smoky than any we’ve tested. Taken together, the best 2021 had to offer for the home make living just a bit cozier.

When it comes to vacuum cleaners, Dyson leads the pack. The brand has become so synonymous with vacuum cleaners that “Dyson” and “vacuum” are about as interchangeable as “Kleenex” and “tissue.” But not all vacuums are Dyson, and with its latest model — the V15 Detect — the brand further posits itself as the end-all, be-all of vacuum cleaners.

dyson v15 detect vacuum

Dyson

What makes the V15 Detect special is its innovative slim laser head. You read that right: “laser.” Meant for hard floors, the brush head is equipped with a green laser that projects itself against the floor when in use. The laser does more than light a path for you to vacuum, however — it illuminates particles as small as 10 microns, which is about the diameter of human red blood cells. In a way, the laser head makes vacuuming feel less like a chore and more like a real-life game of Pac-Man. The Dyson isn’t just a vacuum for hard floor, as it also comes with a fluffy head brush for getting into rugs and carpets.

Sometimes when you vacuum, it can feel like nothing is really happening until you start to see an accumulation of crap in your dust bin. The V15 Detect takes things a step further by using something called an “acoustic piezo sensor.” In layman’s terms, the sensor registers the vibrations of the dust being vacuumed and uses those vibrations to measure the size of the debris — it’s then transferred into an electric signal, relaying how many particles (and the varying sizes of the particles) through an LCD screen atop the vacuum cleaner.

The V15 Detect maintains Dyson’s legendary suction power through its powerful motor, adding a 60-minute runtime, eight click-on attachments and a new anti-tangle hair brush. If you’ve ever felt like giving your home a deep clean, the V15 Detect is the vacuum to do it.

Houseplant

Seth Rogen might be Hollywood’s favorite toker, so it only made sense for the actor to release a weed brand in the United States (after a very successful run in his home country of Canada). Houseplant, founded alongside longtime creative partner Evan Goldberg, is a brand of well-designed weed accessories (available nationwide) and weed (available only in California).

The pair have graduated the gaudy Marley-adorned weed gear of the past into 2021 where form is as important as function. Some may find issue with two white men founding a weed business when Black people are more likely to be arrested for weed-related charges than white people. The pair know this. So aside from making excellent smoking gear, Houseplant aims to create a more diverse and equitable cannabis industry, from fighting unjust weed laws to advocating for minority-owned businesses.

On the hunt for a tiny sit-to-stand desk, all I could find were ugly, poorly designed options from Amazon. Then Humanscale, one of the leading home office furniture brands, remodeled its popular Float desk into the smaller eFloat One. The 0nly change the brand had to make was to swap out the two-leg stand for a single center column to accommodate the smaller tabletop. Other than its smaller footprint, the desk retains much of what makes Humanscale’s desks such popular buys. The tabletop is made of sustainable bamboo, which also happens to be beautiful, and users can easily control the desk’s height through an intuitive touchpad.

Mavix

Who could have guessed that the best chairs for gaming are just the best chairs for most time spent in front of a screen? Until recently, very few people. The plague of horribly designed “gaming” chairs began years ago, when, in a fit of absolute nonsense, it was decided gamers needed racing-style seats to sit in a chair and play League. Winged seatbacks and bucket seats were designed to keep actual racecar drivers stuck in their seats when ripping around a track; playing Dota 2 or Counterstrike shouldn’t lift you from your seat.

There are more negatives — the pleather, the elevated seat lip — but they hardly bear mentioning when the obvious is, well, obvious: an ergonomic chair is best for working long hours in front of a computer, meaning it’s best for long hour gaming hours in front of a computer. The brilliance of Mavix’s new M4 chair (and Mavix’s gaming chairs more generally) is its straightforward, body friendly design. It offers lumbar and neck support, adjustable armrests, a headrest, locking casters and a highly breathable mesh back for the sweatier nerds among us.

solo stove elemental series

Solo Stove

Solo Stove is not a brand new company, but it does feel like 2021 was the year it made a name for itself. Its backyard Bonfire line is essentially a performance-minded firepit, which is something firmly in the “I didn’t know I needed this until I had one” camp, and its new-to-2021 Elemental Series is its first that blends that high performance with variable looks (in this case, five earthy color options).

The premise beneath the Solo Stove’s all-steel build is simple: most firepits are built with looks in mind, not fires. The Solo Stove prioritizes fuller combustion, which makes for hotter and less smoky fires; a lot like a well-designed charcoal grill might. If you’re tired of stinging eyes, billows of thick smoke and meh heat output, it’s well worth the spend; especially now that you can get one that doesn’t look a little like a piece of a fallen satellite.

The 10 Best New Home Products of the Year

This story is part of the GP100, our list of the 100 best new products of the year. Read the introduction to the series here, and stay tuned for more lists like it throughout the month.

If last year’s list of the best new products for your home highlighted performance above all else, this year’s list is the embodiment of comfort. This makes good sense: We spent nearly every waking hour in our homes at the start of the pandemic, so the best new things eased that transition. This year, the best new things mellow our neuroses. Take Seth Rogen’s striking new weed label, Houseplant. Oh, and Nebia’s affordable, water-saving spa showerhead. And lest we forget Solo Stove’s great looking new line of firepits, that are hotter and less smoky than any we’ve tested. Taken together, the best 2021 had to offer for the home make living just a bit cozier.

When it comes to vacuum cleaners, Dyson leads the pack. The brand has become so synonymous with vacuum cleaners that “Dyson” and “vacuum” are about as interchangeable as “Kleenex” and “tissue.” But not all vacuums are Dyson, and with its latest model — the V15 Detect — the brand further posits itself as the end-all, be-all of vacuum cleaners.

dyson v15 detect vacuum

Dyson

What makes the V15 Detect special is its innovative slim laser head. You read that right: “laser.” Meant for hard floors, the brush head is equipped with a green laser that projects itself against the floor when in use. The laser does more than light a path for you to vacuum, however — it illuminates particles as small as 10 microns, which is about the diameter of human red blood cells. In a way, the laser head makes vacuuming feel less like a chore and more like a real-life game of Pac-Man. The Dyson isn’t just a vacuum for hard floor, as it also comes with a fluffy head brush for getting into rugs and carpets.

Sometimes when you vacuum, it can feel like nothing is really happening until you start to see an accumulation of crap in your dust bin. The V15 Detect takes things a step further by using something called an “acoustic piezo sensor.” In layman’s terms, the sensor registers the vibrations of the dust being vacuumed and uses those vibrations to measure the size of the debris — it’s then transferred into an electric signal, relaying how many particles (and the varying sizes of the particles) through an LCD screen atop the vacuum cleaner.

The V15 Detect maintains Dyson’s legendary suction power through its powerful motor, adding a 60-minute runtime, eight click-on attachments and a new anti-tangle hair brush. If you’ve ever felt like giving your home a deep clean, the V15 Detect is the vacuum to do it.

Houseplant

Seth Rogen might be Hollywood’s favorite toker, so it only made sense for the actor to release a weed brand in the United States (after a very successful run in his home country of Canada). Houseplant, founded alongside longtime creative partner Evan Goldberg, is a brand of well-designed weed accessories (available nationwide) and weed (available only in California).

The pair have graduated the gaudy Marley-adorned weed gear of the past into 2021 where form is as important as function. Some may find issue with two white men founding a weed business when Black people are more likely to be arrested for weed-related charges than white people. The pair know this. So aside from making excellent smoking gear, Houseplant aims to create a more diverse and equitable cannabis industry, from fighting unjust weed laws to advocating for minority-owned businesses.

On the hunt for a tiny sit-to-stand desk, all I could find were ugly, poorly designed options from Amazon. Then Humanscale, one of the leading home office furniture brands, remodeled its popular Float desk into the smaller eFloat One. The 0nly change the brand had to make was to swap out the two-leg stand for a single center column to accommodate the smaller tabletop. Other than its smaller footprint, the desk retains much of what makes Humanscale’s desks such popular buys. The tabletop is made of sustainable bamboo, which also happens to be beautiful, and users can easily control the desk’s height through an intuitive touchpad.

Mavix

Who could have guessed that the best chairs for gaming are just the best chairs for most time spent in front of a screen? Until recently, very few people. The plague of horribly designed “gaming” chairs began years ago, when, in a fit of absolute nonsense, it was decided gamers needed racing-style seats to sit in a chair and play League. Winged seatbacks and bucket seats were designed to keep actual racecar drivers stuck in their seats when ripping around a track; playing Dota 2 or Counterstrike shouldn’t lift you from your seat.

There are more negatives — the pleather, the elevated seat lip — but they hardly bear mentioning when the obvious is, well, obvious: an ergonomic chair is best for working long hours in front of a computer, meaning it’s best for long hour gaming hours in front of a computer. The brilliance of Mavix’s new M4 chair (and Mavix’s gaming chairs more generally) is its straightforward, body friendly design. It offers lumbar and neck support, adjustable armrests, a headrest, locking casters and a highly breathable mesh back for the sweatier nerds among us.

Solo Stove

Solo Stove is not a brand new company, but it does feel like 2021 was the year it made a name for itself. Its backyard Bonfire line is essentially a performance-minded firepit, which is something firmly in the “I didn’t know I needed this until I had one” camp, and its new-to-2021 Elemental Series is its first that blends that high performance with variable looks (in this case, five earthy color options).

The premise beneath the Solo Stove’s all-steel build is simple: most firepits are built with looks in mind, not fires. The Solo Stove prioritizes fuller combustion, which makes for hotter and less smoky fires; a lot like a well-designed charcoal grill might. If you’re tired of stinging eyes, billows of thick smoke and meh heat output, it’s well worth the spend; especially now that you can get one that doesn’t look a little like a piece of a fallen satellite.

There’s Never Been a Better Time to Try a Dyson Vacuum

You’re likely already familiar with Dyson — a brand built on its reputation for powerful, reliable cleaning machines, thoughtfully designed. The Cyclone V10 Absolute Vacuum epitomizes what makes Dyson such an industry favorite, wrapped in the brand’s signature streamlined aesthetics. When it comes to raw cleaning power, the Cyclone V10 is powered by (as the name suggests) a Dyson V10 digital motor and 14 cyclones; the end result is a consistent suction that can pull up even microscopic particles like bacteria or pollen. This dirt and debris passes through a whole-machine, fully-sealed filtration system for a truly deep clean anywhere you use it. And we really mean anywhere: With three different cleaning modes, 60 minutes of fade-free usage on a single charge and a variety of different cleaning heads — including the Torque Drive and Soft Roller heads — the Cyclone V10 Absolute Vacuum can flex from carpet to hardwood without skipping a beat. It’s also never been a better time to add a Dyson to your cleaning gear. With $50 off for the holiday shopping season and a bevy of extra tools included at no extra cost, this might be the cleanest purchase you can make this season.

Is there such an inspiring machine as a great vacuum? The Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute is a great example: purpose-built, easy to use and damn good at its job. This cordless powerhouse is a masterwork, incorporating all of Dyson’s top vacuuming innovations (they have quite a lot of those, if you don’t know).

Why spring for a top-of-the-line cordless vacuum like the Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute? We were hoping you’d ask.

Dyson


Engineered to deep clean anywhere.

The Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute has the most suction power of any cordless vacuum ever made. And it’s engineered for deep cleaning wherever you need it, thanks to a torque drive cleaner head that removes deep-down dirt from carpets and a soft roller cleaner head that removes fine dust from hard floors. It quickly transitions to a handheld vacuum for cleaning sofas or clearing cobwebs from the corner of the ceiling. In short: it cleans better, faster.

Three different cleaning modes tackle any task.

Large debris or fine dust on hardwood floors? Try suction mode one, friend. Suction mode two gets down deep into carpets. And for the messiest messes, boost mode lends intense power — Fido’s dog bed is a perfect target. Combine this targeted efficiency with 60 minutes of run time and you have the recipe for a clean house, fast.

A great gift for the holidays.

Look, who doesn’t love a powerful vacuum that makes cleaning up easy and fast? This is a gift that keeps on giving: peace of mind that no mess is too tough, or that a quick cleanup before friends arrive is no problem at all. So buy it now before stock runs out.

While there are clear benefits to sitting on a physioball while working, it’s not necessarily the most aesthetically pleasing part of your home office. And with many of us working from home, surrounding ourselves with objects that invite movement can allow for boosted energy, focus and wellbeing. The Air Chair from Venn Design provides the benefits of a physioball but with a design that will elevate your space instead of serving as an eyesore. Thanks to a four-layer laminate construction with layers of durable, ripstop nylon, high-density foam and felt all wrapping an inner air cushion core, this chair provides comfort while helping your posture. Not to mention it also helps regulate temperature so that you never experience that cold, clammy and sweaty feeling that you might with other stability balls. It’s available in large or small sizes; the large is perfect as a desk chair and workout ball while the small can provide additional seating when friends are over. In a variety of designs and patterns, the Air Chair ensures you don’t have to choose between style and comfort.

The Perfect Pillow Might Actually Exist, and It’s Called Marlow

The future of pillows is all about adjustability. The days of having to test multiple pillows to suit your Goldilocks-like preferences is over. In the past, an adjustable pillow has either meant you had to add or remove shredded memory foam (a messy experience) or utilize different layer inserts (removing some of the fine-tuning you get with adjustable fill). Now a new pillow brand makes adjusting your pillow’s firmness as easy as using a zipper.

Marlow, a new brand from cult-favorite sheet brand Brooklinen, specializes in one product: an adjustable pillow. To adjust its firmness, you either zip or unzip the pillow, which inevitably changes the pillow’s loft, too. Like your pillows firm? Keep it zipped. Need something a little softer? Unzip that thing. And if you’re super fickle about your pillow’s plush level, find your sweet spot somewhere between zipped and unzipped.

marlow pillow
The Marlow pillow isn’t like other adjustable pillows. In lieu of removable shredded memory foam or layer inserts, the pillow uses a zipper system to adjust firmness

Marlow

The magic of Marlow is more than just its adjustability. The outer layer of the pillow is made of a silky smooth sateen cotton, so while you’ll probably use a pillowcase, those who don’t use a pillowcase will have a smooth surface to lay their head. The combination of memory foam and polyster fibers increases the pillow’s breathability, while a mesh layer further prevents overheating at night.

The Marlow pillow is backed by a two-year warranty, and you have a full year after purchase to decide if it’s right for you. The pillow costs $65 for a standard size and $85 for a king size, but buying in bulk yields a discount of 25 percent off (for two to three pillows) or 40 percent off (for four or more pillows). Head over to Marlow’s website to shop the pillows now, and they’re expected to hit Brooklinen’s website as well as Amazon in the future.

Unwind With Session Goods’ Modern Smoking Accessories

While attitudes around marijuana have undergone a massive sea change in the last few years, the accessories surrounding the indulgence (like pipes and bongs, for example) still reflect the pastime’s more rebellious, almost-stereotypical stoner perceptions. Session Goods — born out of four friends’ desire for smoking gear that was as well-designed as any kitchen appliance or housewares — brings a thoroughly modern approach to marijuana. In that aesthetically-minded spirit, the brand has launched its Designer Series, a suite of products served up in timeless monochromatic black or white. The bongs and pipes, crafted out of borosilicate glass, come complete with silicone footers or cases (respectively) for protection that doubles as an understated and stylish complement to the overall silhouette of each piece. With its Designer Series, Session Goods epitomizes its unique philosophy: Blending high-quality materials and modern minimalism, it’s clear the label is a breath of fresh air in contemporary smoking accessory space.

Traditionally speaking, towels are probably one of the least exciting things to shop for.

Steelcase

Steelcase makes a number of amazing office chairs, one of which, the Series 1, is our pick for the best overall office chair.

CB2 x Kravitz Design

cb2 x kravitz designed living room

CW2

Lenny Kravitz is a global rockstar so it makes sense that his collection with CB2 draws inspiration from all over the world. (Though one could wonder why the rocker has a furniture collection to begin with.) As CB2 describes it, the collection, “[draws] inspiration from the ateliers of Europe, the markets of Africa and beyond.” The collection runs the gamut from throw pillows to beds, each with its own distinct personality. If I had an endless supply of money and square footage, you could find the Imbu sectional, Traverse rug and Kibo media credenza in my home.

The new Crystal Ball Pipe is meant to double as home decor, so you don’t need to hide it away when you have guests over — parents will probably dismiss it as abstract art. It features an orb smoking vessel and a glass base, available in four colors: pink, black, blue and amber.

A couple big releases include iRobot’s new Roomba model, a robot vacuum designed to navigate around your pet’s poop (no, seriously), and Parachute’s foray into the furniture category with some new bed frames. An odd release this month came from the deli to end all delis, Katz’s in New York City, which turned an April Fool’s Joke into a September release: gin-flavored pickles. Check our all of the best home and design releases of September here, and get ready for another month of cool new drops.

If you’re a whiskey fan, you should know how to make at least three classic whiskey cocktails: an Old Fashioned, a Mint Julep and a Whiskey Sour. Or you can just buy Williams Sonoma’s new cocktail mixers made in collaboration with Woodford Reserve. While it’s not particularly difficult to make these drinks on your own, the mixers make it convenient to get a tasty cocktail with minimal effort — and it’s even better if you don’t have all of the separate ingredients on hand. The collaboration between the retailer and bourbon brand extends beyond the cocktail bar and into the virtual classroom with a series of online cocktail classes held between September 15 and September 29.

The brand’s new Sunset Bong, a bong that hits as good as it looks. Made of borosilicate glass, the Sunset Bong isn’t something you’d be ashamed of keeping out in the open, and yes, it’s way better than smoking from some gaudy bong that’s best reserved for un-cool college kids.

Robot vacuums are getting smarter and smarter. And the latest Roomba from iRobot, the j7+, might be the smartest so far — especially if you’re an animal owner. The j7+ uses PrecisionVision Navigation to avoid obstacles in its way, especially animal feces, a problem that other robot vacuums have had in the past. Over time, the robo vac will learn what parts of your home need more cleaning and what floor obstacles to avoid. With the latest software update, the iRobot Genius 3.0, the j7+ comes equipped with new features such as Clean While I’m Away, which uses your phone’s location services to determine when you’ve left your home so it can start cleaning; Quiet Drive, which makes the vacuum as quiet as possible when you need some cleaning but also some quiet time; and Cleaning Time Estimates, to give you a ballpark estimate of how long a cleaning session will take.

Alldae Cascara Tea

If you’ve never had it, cascara is tea made from the skin of the fruit of the coffee plant. When processing these fruits to get the seed (what we call the coffee bean), the skins are removed and typically discarded. Cascara gives them delicious purpose. Alldae is a new company making cascara out of Gesha coffee from Panama. If you’re hunting a mid-afternoon pick-me-up that isn’t as jarring as a cup of coffee, Alldae’s canned cascaras are an excellent option. I like the pineapple flavor best.

The cucumbers aren’t actually infused with gin, but they do get brined for 72 hours in a solution that contains the botanicals that Hendrick’s uses in its gin. Eat them on their own, pair with a pastrami sandwich or mix yourself a cocktail — gin and pickles are an oddly satisfying combination.
