We've seen plenty of bottle openers on keychains, but a necklace? That's a first. The Bottle Opener Necklace ($62) lets you display your love of the suds proudly on your chest. Made from hand forged steel, this unique accessory is hand hammered on a 130-year-old anvil, then coated with a light coat of beeswax to preserve its appearance. A perfect accompaniment to those chainmail gloves you bought at the renaissance fair last year.
As the four-eyed staffers of Uncrate can attest, nice-looking specs are rarely cheap. Fortunately that's not the case with Warby Parker Eyewear ($95). Started by four friends sick of paying eye-popping prices for their eye enhancers, this collection of well-designed, vintage-inspired modern frames will have you seeing right and looking respectably geeky for not a lot of dough. And besides looking dapper, Warby Parker works with RestoringVision.org to give one pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair they sell. Oh, and did we mention monocles?

If your alcoholic escapades often take you beyond the land of seedy bars and into black tie dinners with the rich and obviously miserable, be sure to grab a pair of Bottle Opener Cufflinks ($50). Made from polished stainless steel, these interesting accessories are subtle enough to blend in with an upscale crowd — although you're probably not being as sneaky as you think if you're drinking Bud Ice straight from the bottle. Use a glass, savage.
Based on design work from Plan B Branding and named after the sound of beer bottles hitting each other in celebration, The Clink Room One in One-Fifty Caps ($45) are limited-edition New Era baseball caps adorned with logos that are taken from the design process from Plan B's work on Major and Minor League baseball team identities. Each cap is limited to just 150 pieces, and are hand-numbered and signed by the project's designers. A great gift for the design and baseball fan in your household.
Find yourself constantly playing with your wedding band or other rings? Perhaps its time to grab a Kinekt Gear Ring ($165) to fool around with. This intriguing little accessory is made from stainless steel and features six micro-precision gears scattered around the outside which allow the outer rims to spin independently of the ring itself. Great for watchmakers, engineers, and tinkerers alike. [Thanks, Jason]
