Anytime a spice product comes with a disclaimer that you have to approve, you know it's serious — and Blair's 16 Million Reserve Crystals ($545 and up) are indeed serious. Limited to a run of 999, the gold and white wax-sealed bottle holds inside a 1ml pharmaceutical grade vial packed with pure capsaicin crystal, the main active component of chili peppers. To put it another way, this is absolutely the hottest hot sauce product known to man. Handle (and eat) with care.
With this Joe's Stone Crab Dinner ($235-$330), you can feast on Miami's most famous seafood at home. Included with the frozen package are 10 (serves two) or 20 (serves four) claws, a 9" key lime pie, cocktail forks and bibs, a bamboo cutting board, and a wooden cracking mallet.
Most guys dread the thought of clothes shopping and dread the thought of having to try clothes on at a store even more. With Mott & Bow, you can say goodbye to that painful process, and still get a well designed, great fitting pair of premium jeans. Mott & Bow is all about comfort and quality. They use different types of denim from left-hand weave Italian denim for extreme softness (seriously, they're really soft) to 4-way stretch denim for optimal flexibility. Mott & Bow cuts out the middleman and sells directly to you so they can sell their jeans at half the price of jeans of the same quality. They will also ship you two waist sizes at no extra charge to make sure you get the right fit — just send back the pair that doesn't fit at no additional cost. Finally, you can afford premium denim that fits without an awkward trip to a department store. And keep an eye out, as several new styles are on the way in 2017.

The Weekender might be the only watch you'll ever need. Timex is confident of that statement, and it's difficult to argue after giving it a hard look. With a minimalist design, the Weekender looks refined yet straightforward, is easy to use, and still manages to pack plenty of features onto its resume. Each watch includes a 40mm oversized case, INDIGLO night-light and chronograph functionality. It's available in four colors, with the option to swap out the leather and nylon straps for a fresh look whenever the mood strikes you.

Because everything should taste like bacon, there's Bacon Salt ($5). Available in three tasty flavors — Original, Hickory and Peppered — Bacon Salt is a zero calorie, zero fat, vegetarian and kosher seasoning salt that tastes just like real bacon. It's pretty wonderful on just about anything you can think of — we honestly didn't have one bad experience of bacon overload. (OK, so the Hickory no-bake cookies could have been better.) For extra healthiness, there's Natural flavor, which is also gluten free and has low sodium. Bacon in a bottle. It doesn't get much better than that.
