The Essential Geography of the United States of America

Google Maps may have spoiled your appreciation for old-school paper maps, but one look at David Imus' The Essential Geography of the United States of America ($13-$40) is bound to restore your faith.

  • Slice Box Cutter

    If you're anything like us, you'll be doing as much of your holiday shopping as possible online — and that means lots and lots of boxes. To get all of those open with minimal effort and permanent scarring, we suggest the Slice Box Cutter ($20). A 2011 red dot Design Award Winner, the Slice sports a hand-sharpened, retractable, adjustable-length ceramic blade with a rounded tip to safely and quickly cut through tape and cardboard — but hopefully not the contents — while the unique design ensures your hand stays out of the way.
