This knife truly is a classic. Used by pro chefs across the globe, the Wüsthof Classic 8" Cook's Knife ($120) can be used everyday for just about anything you can do in the kitchen. It's forged from a single piece of high-carbon, no-stain steel, has a hollow-ground design for reduced friction, offers great balance, and is dishwasher safe. And while it may be a bit pricey, it'll outlast you and end up in your kid's cooking arsenal one day.
Yes, that’s right — “flavour.” This jewel is for our friends over in the UK. The Jamie Oliver Flavour Shaker (£19.99) is a little kitchen gadget that grinds, crushes, and bruises all sorts of ingredients into great rubs, marinades, and dressings. Inside the sexy outer shell is a ceramic ball that does all the work for you. It won’t make you as good a chef as Jamie, but it certainly couldn’t hurt. [Thanks, Brett]
American outdoor brand Woolrich is known for its woolen fabrics, and it's those high-quality materials that make the Topo Designs x Woolrich Klettersack so distinctive.

It also has a completely lined interior, an inner sleeve that fits laptops up to 15 inches, a drawstring closure, oversized YKK zippers, and extra pockets on the top and sides.

Made from the same shock-resistant structure the brand is known for, the G-Shock G-Steel Watch dresses up the notably sporty timepiece with a sleek steel finish. The bezel and band are made from a double layer of stainless steel and resin for a tough scratch-resistant surface, while still providing the same impact absorption as its predecessors. Although it's a new look, the loads of functions remain the same with a countdown timer, stopwatch, world time, water resistance to 200 meters, double LED lighting, and a solar-powered rechargeable battery.

That’s the problem I always have when cake is around — people keep running away with it. You can now recreate the situation with the Bimboveloce (running man) Cake Stand by Mattia di Rosa ($175). It features a small man that, while holding up your cake, pie, or cookies, looks like he’s trying to carry them away. If only we could find one that actually worked when our family members give us raisin pie.
It's easy to misplace your beer and get it mixed up with someone else's at a party — especially if your host is a tightwad like us and only buys one brand. Keep a handy Beer Band ($6/12 pack) with you and you'll never have to wonder if you're about to drink Bubba's bud or yours.
