Keep your drinks chilled the (kinda) natural way with Cowhide Koozies ($15). These collapsable drink holders are made from high-quality neoprene, with rustic, authentic hides stitched to the outside, creating a cooling chamber that will keep a beer at 40 degrees or below for up to 35 minutes, or way longer than should be necessary. [Thanks, Manny]
Wine is best appreciated when consumed right after it's opened. And just like your last relationship, it can turn sour in as little as 2 hours if left unattended. Now you can put those fears (and memories) behind you once and for all. Just decant an unfinished bottle into the Platypus Platy Preserve Wine Preserver ($12), seal the air-tight cap, and it will last up to several days (or weeks) with no ill effect. The Preserver makes it possible to enjoy just one glass at a time — handy now that you're drinking alone.
Sporting an all-new case silhouette and both analog and digital readouts, the G-Shock GA700-1A Watch is an ideal entry point to this iconic brand. The dial and hands protrude outward, giving the watch a 3D look and making it more legible, while the front-button super illuminator LED light makes darkness an afterthought. It also offers world time, a stopwatch, a countdown timer, multiple alarms, and, of course, the shock- and water-resistance the G-Shock line is known for. Available in three colorways.

The Johnnie Walker Limited Edition Tasting Kit ($50) has everything you need to partake in a civilized tasting of all the company's scotch blends.

Whether you're a collector or a kegmeister, you'll want to check out Kegworks' collection of Branded Tap Handles ($14-$60). The hard-to-find handles, available in a many different brands, are not sold in stores, and are only provided directly to bars and restaurants. So every handle you see for sale probably lived a long life of serving brews to hapless chaps like yourself, and now want nothing more than to retire to a quiet basement bar. Buy one and add the last touch of authenticity your bar's been been lacking.
