Keep your drinks chilled the (kinda) natural way with Cowhide Koozies ($15). These collapsable drink holders are made from high-quality neoprene, with rustic, authentic hides stitched to the outside, creating a cooling chamber that will keep a beer at 40 degrees or below for up to 35 minutes, or way longer than should be necessary.

Wine is best appreciated when consumed right after it's opened. And just like your last relationship, it can turn sour in as little as 2 hours if left unattended. Now you can put those fears (and memories) behind you once and for all. Just decant an unfinished bottle into the Platypus Platy Preserve Wine Preserver ($12), seal the air-tight cap, and it will last up to several days (or weeks) with no ill effect. The Preserver makes it possible to enjoy just one glass at a time — handy now that you're drinking alone.
We spend about a third of our life sleeping, so the mattress you sleep on every night is incredibly important. Make sure you get the right one by trying out a Casper. This USA-made mattress is made up of multiple layers of foam, including one for support and pressure relief, and one to make sure you don't get too hot. It's all wrapped up in a durable woven cover, and shipped right to your door in a box that's easy to maneuver into even the smallest abodes. You get 100 nights to try it out, can return it for free if you're not satisfied, but if you are (and you probably will be), you can upgrade even further by grabbing some of the company's soft Supima cotton sheets and dual-layer pillows.

Inspired by a style from the 1970's from the Timex archives, the Blackjack Watch is the latest release in the collaborative relationship between Todd Snyder and Timex. The design pays tribute to the style conscious Formula One drivers of the 60's and 70's. Updated in a modern blackout palette with black finished case and military inspired nylon strap, the Blackjack borrows distinctive details from the archival original and features 50 Meter Water Resistance and Quartz Movement. Designed for versatility and wearability, the Blackjack wears its influences proudly and perfectly embodies a New York style both brands are happy to showcase.
