Equal parts ecologically friendly and gorgeous, the Cafino Coffee Maker ($165) is ready to help kick start your day with an extra dash of style. Made in Germany using stainless steel and glass, it uses a double stainless steel mesh sieve to hold your freshly-ground beans, a borosilicate glass cylinder to hold the boiling water — and eventually your coffee — and an integrated handle to make pouring as easy as brewing.

Unless you have a built-in ice maker, odds are you have to deal with ice cube trays — and all the water spillage that comes with them. The Cube Tube ($TBA) is designed to eliminate that problem. Its vertical ice cube tray prevents spillage by allowing you to fill up a clear tube that works with a 14-cube divider to lock in the water, making it incredibly easy to get your frozen friends out one-at-a-time when its time for a cold drink.

Protein bars usually contain as much sugar as a doughnut and have an ingredient list that requires a doctorate to pronounce. RXBARs are different. With no more than eight ingredients, each bar contains real, whole foods and delivers 12g of quality protein without any added sugar. At the core of every bar is a mixture of egg whites, fruits, and nuts — which they print right on the front of the package — and each of their 12 flavors are gluten-, soy-, and dairy-free. Our favorites are Chocolate Sea Salt, Blueberry, and Peanut Butter, but we recommend starting with the best seller pack, which comes with six of their top selling flavors. Keep a few of these in your gym bag, office drawer, and kitchen pantry for when you need a snack and resist the urge to scarf a candy bar.

A mug with a built-in coaster? Brilliant! Inspired by a banana holder, the Floating Mug ($20) is exactly that: a white porcelain mug — perfect for coffee or tea — that separates the liquid-holding portion from the ground by integrating a coaster into the handle, keeping the heat away from sensitive surfaces like wood, while giving the cup itself a cool floating look. Hence the name.
Long has man yearned for the taste of a traditional grill without the need to go outdoors — and the Element Indoor Smokeless BBQ ($225) promises to deliver.

Other features include a specific section for catching grease — making for easy cleanup — an adjustable grill height, and a removable handle.
