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.

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.
