Now, we're not suggesting you're up to anything nefarious, but given the proper tools, there are few locks that could keep the determined man from entering. Whether you have a frequent problem locking yourself out of your apartment, or you're getting into something a bit more sinister, the Gentleman's Bogota Lock Picks ($35) are exactly the tools you need to gain entrance just about anywhere. Made to pin discretely under a lapel, collar, sleeve, or hat, these lock picks are light, yet sturdy, made from high-quality, precisely-cut stainless steel — so they'll never let you down in a pinch.
Send a subtle hint to Santa that all you want to see under the tree this year is a fresh pair of Js, with an Air Jordan 1 Christmas Stocking ($45). These hand-sewn stockings look like a classic pair of Air Jordan 1s, styled in a timeless and recognizable colorway: red, white, and black. Made from felt material, they measure 15 and a half inches long and nine inches wide — plenty of space for all the loot you could ever dream of, or the most comprehensive shoe-cleaning kit money can buy.
Sharpen your dress and your wit before the holidays this year. It's the season to be on top of your game.

Whether you're tearing something down, or building something up, there are few tools more handy than a reciprocating saw — and the DualSaw Dual Blade Reciprocating Saw ($200) takes your standard reciprocating saw and turns it up to 11. As the first and only dual blade reciprocating saw, the DualSaw will make quick work out of just about any cutting task. With the ability to cut at two stroke lengths, it is the safest, smoothest cutting reciprocating saw available. It has less kick back, better stability, less vibration, and better control than any other reciprocating saw you can find.
One thing Ron Burgundy takes as seriously as news is scotch, so it should come as no surprise that San Diego's top newsman has a scotch of his own, and it's kind of a big deal. Ron Burgundy Scotchy Scotch Scotch ($TBA) is a blend of whiskies from Speyside, Highlands and Islay worthy of the Burgundy catchphrase "Great Odin's Raven." It sounds like a must have bottle, especially if you have many leather-bound books and your apartment smells of rich mahogany. Don't act like you're not impressed.
It seems like everywhere you look, someone is sporting some sort of Beats device — whether it's a pair of headphones, earbuds, or portable speakers — but none of them look quite like the Beats by Alexander Wang Collection ($150-$450). This very limited edition takes three of these devices and coats them in matte black with pale gold accents, making them truly stand out. They include the Beats Pill portable speakers, Ur Beats ear buds, and Beats Studio headphones, and each comes in an Alexander Wang embossed glossy stingray case with a zipper and clip. Each one is available in limited amounts in a pre-sale event, but won't be for long.
As hard as it is to admit it, there are more options out there than standard American Bacon when you're looking for your pork fix — with Bacons of the World ($300), you get all the bacon this great nation has to offer, plus a few bonuses. With your purchase, you'll receive quarterly shipments of five pounds each, made up of half American Bacon, and half a second type. You'll get Guanciale, unsmoked Italian pig cheek; English Bacon, smoked loin with belly attached; Pancetta, the Italian cousin of American Bacon; and Holiday Bacon, a specially seasoned version of American Bacon.
Way back in the Middle Ages, during the holidays, spices, instead of hops, were added to beer to add flavor. That tradition reemerged in the 1900's, and is the inspiration behind many holiday beers on the market today. Great Lakes Christmas Ale ($12) is one of many in a crowded market, but manages to separate itself with its unique recipe and flavor profile. Christmas Ale is brewed with honey and spiced with fresh ginger and cinnamon, providing a tasty gift that belongs under the tree of every craft beer enthusiast.
While billed as the world's most-powerful all-electric bike, the Voxan Wattman Motorcycle ($TBA) may also just be the world's ugliest. Wrapped in a light-weight aluminum exoskeleton chassis that houses all of its drivetrain components, this bike would likely be more comfortable on the set of a Tron sequel than an actual motorway. What's really impressive about this bike is a little harder to see at first glance: the 200 horsepower electric engine makes it easily the most powerful EV on two wheels, propelling it to 100mph in just under six seconds, while still retaining the ability to recharge in less than 30 minutes.
When you're looking for a delicious, beefy snack, without all the nasty stuff you'd typically find in those on the corner grocery's shelves, you need Chomps Beef Sticks ($45). These beef sticks are entirely made from grass-fed beef, so there's no need to worry about any unsavory stuff finding its way into your belly. They're also gluten free and paleo friendly, so you won't have to sacrifice your new-age diet just to get your meat fix. Add in the fact that they're also devoid of antibiotics, hormones, nitrates, nitrites, and other strange ingredients, and what you get is great-tasting high-protein snack that's low in guilt.
Some shoe silhouettes never go out of style, but that doesn't mean they can't be made better with the addition of a bit of modern footwear technology — and the Nike Air Max Lunar 90 ($130) is proof. This classic shoe gets an update making the sole and upper more breathable, lightweight, and comfortable. The combination of a Lunarlon sole, a seamless upper, and a compression molded collar, lining, and tongue give these old-school kicks a touch of new-school ventilation, responsiveness, and wearability. Available now as a limited release in the original Air Max colorway, these shoes will soon be released in a series of other colorways to reflect the update.
Get the most out of your iPhone (or pretty much any smartphone out there), whether you're shooting photos or catching up on today's news, with the Glif ($30) tripod mount and smartphone stand. This simple device can mount to any standard tripod, letting you get the most out of that little camera you bring everywhere. Better still, it adjusts to fit any phone thanks to the included hex key, so it can prop up your phone at various angles to maximize your viewing pleasure. Being made from recyclable rubberized plastic is just an added bonus.
