We can all be forgetful at times, especially when it comes to annual events like birthdays and anniversaries. Remember Rings ($760; Pre-order) take the pressure off by reminding you of your important dates. 24 hours before the big day, the HotSpot on the ring will heat up to 120 degrees for approximately 10 seconds, and will continue to do so every hour, on the hour, all day long (lest you forget again).

Leather isn't the first thing that comes to mind when you're talking about performance. For those looking for something a little better around their waist, Patagonia's Tech Web Belt ($26) will take care of things whether you're kayaking under blue skies or drinking under neon signs. Made of super-strong and quick-drying nylon webbing, the lightweight belt sports an aluminum buckle that doubles as a bottle opener.

If you're going to be bold enough to wear some jewelry, you should be smart enough not to buy some mass-produced crap from Abercrombie or Macy's. Instead, let the one-man team behind Pennyroal Silver help you accessorize with some cred. Pennyroyal's pure silver pendant necklaces ($60-$125) are expertly hand-crafted — from initial sketch to the custom packaging and everything in between. Each antique-like piece is produced in a limited quantity and individually numbered. And if you want something even more unique, have no fear. Pennyroyal specializes in creating one-of-a-kind pieces (approximately $250-$350) of whatever you can dream up. In fact, this Uncrate editor is wearing one-half of an absolutely killer Mizpah with his recent wedding date scrawled across the back.
