If you're the type who carries a Moleskine with you nearly everywhere you go, you're probably also the type who will dig these Custom Laser Engraved Moleskine Notebooks ($25 and up). Pick your notebook, upload your artwork (or choose from one of 10 artist designs), and you're done — unless you want custom spine engraving, as well. The hipster's favorite accessory just got a little cooler.
If you're as obsessive about your Myriad Pros and Helveticas as we are, check out the Pentragram 2008 Typography Calendar ($22-$36). Full of type designs by Matthew Carter, including Walker, Snell Roundhand, and Galliard, the calendar is sure to provide some inspiration for your blog, and should also help you keep your disorganized ass in check.
Your sense of smell is way more sensitive than your sense of taste. And that's a huge reason why the aromas you inhale from a dram of whisky greatly impact your tasting experience. The makers of the Norlan Whisky Glass know that, but also know that the aesthetic you get from a classic tumbler matters as well, and have combined the best of both worlds in this unique piece of glassware. Each glass is hand-blown from Borosilicate glass and available in sets of two.

It can be tough to find workout clothing that looks decent outside of the gym, but these Spar Jogger pants from Rhone provide the best of both worlds. Built with technical running in mind, each pair is made using a soft jersey fabric. They feature moisture-wicking knit fabric, light water resistant bonded back pocket, and zippered side pockets. They're perfect for your next workout, and are versatile enough to wear all day without looking out of place.

For a totally NSFW new year, check out the Nerdcore 2008 Calendar ($25). While last year's calendar was gamer themed (mmm... PowerGlove), the 2008 version focuses on superheroes and villains. Only don't expect to see some buff dude with a dumb "S" on his chest — expect lots of sexy bare chests.
We'll readily admit that USPS stamps aren't the sexiest items we could write about. Then again, when they feature the classic designs of Charles & Ray Eames, there are few stamps that can compare. The USPS Charles & Ray Eames Postage Stamp Collection ($7 a sheet) is a set of 16 stamps featuring some of the Eames' most popular designs. Honored in the collection are the Eames Lounge Chair, Eames Molded Plywood Chair, and the Eames Hang-It-All. A sure-fire way to make snail-mail suck a little less.
