Taittinger
Brut Millésimé 2012
$90

The latest in Champagne Taittinger's Millésimé range, the 2012 vintage carries the desirable balance of crisp freshness and an elegant delicacy. This is a very lively and effervescent champagne, composed of equal parts Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes (both drawn from some of the finest vineyards in the region). The 2012 Millésimé undergoes a second fermentation and a five year aging period on the lees. Pear and green apple are noticeable on the palate and the finish happens to be long and complex.

Nook
Crib Mattress
$395

Organic and hypoallergenic, Nook’s crib mattress checks the natural box with materials like coconut and eucalyptus but takes it a step further with other innovative features. Using NanoSphere-dipped fabric, the mattress cover is virtually waterproof (liquids pill off) and eliminates the need for an additional cover. The result, combined with the firm mattress, is a safer sleep surface so that little ones rest better.

Duluth Trading Co
Armachillo Cooling Soap
$9

Regardless of summer heat or post-work out body temperatures year 'round, everyone needs to clean themselves with regularity. If a cold shower doesn't sound alluring, Duluth Trading Co's Armachillo Cooling Soap balances out excessive warmth effectively. Made in the USA in collaboration with Duke Cannon Supply Co, this soap—which Duluth recommends storing in the freezer for extra-coolness—brings a minty, menthol-oriented freshness to the body when in use. This bright sensation also lingers after the body has been thoroughly cleaned. Two bars come per pack.

Damaged Goods
Fortune Cookie Note Card
$7

There's still nothing like a handwritten note—and paper matters. From NYC's Damaged Goods (and creators John Hardy and Nicholas DelRose) comes a line of "nom nom nom" cards featuring our personal favorite, the fortune cookie. Select stock meets thoughtful design, all bound with an environmentally conscious production. These are statement-making, small batch cards.

Rikumo
Sasawashi Slippers
$67

Room shoes are Japanese home essentials and a tradition growing more common in the Western world. Crafted from Sasawashi fabric, these Osaka-made slippers from Rikumo absorb moisture (and odors) and won't pill. Best of all, of course, they are comfortable to slip into after a long day.

Interscope
Limited Edition "DAMN" Vinyl
$31

The red lettering on the album cover of Kendrick Lamar's fourth studio record DAMN now has a complementary limited edition translucent red vinyl pressing. With only 2000 copies, the two-LP record will surely sell out. One of the strongest music offerings of the year, DAMN could and should be enjoyed across various formats.

Fatboy
Perfect Putty
$21

Founded by Cutler Brooklyn's Tyson Kennedy—the hairdresser who doesn't look like a hairdresser, maybe due to his other life as a rock musician—the Fatboy styling line started with this creamy homemade putty that he created for his own hair. A casual, effortless look comes easily, with equally nonchalant packaging. Fatboy has recently added a shampoo and conditioner set to their roster, too.

Chronicle Books
"I Fought the Law" Photo Book
$17

Part trivia, part photo book, Olivia Locher's new "I Fought the Law: Photographs by Olivia Locher of the Strangest Laws from Each of the 50 States" is both pretty and witty. Explore the weird and wild laws (some of which still stand) from all over the States—for instance, in Connecticut pickles must bounce in order to be considered pickles officially. With a foreword by poet Kenneth Goldsmith, it's a highly entertaining book.

North Home
Bush-Dyed Robe
$250

Carefully bush-dyed by Anindilyakwa women living in the remote Groote Eylandt Archipelago—an island in the Gulf of Carpentaria, about 391 miles from Darwin—each North Home robe is unique. The process is one full of rich history and creativity—using native roots, leaves, bark and berries to color the 100% silk pieces. Best of all, the company channels all profits from sales directly back into the organization in order to continue relationships with indigenous art centers and communities, contributing to their financial gain. Price is in AUD.

Cole Haan
2.ZERØGRAND + Staple Design Sneaker
$300

To celebrate their 20th anniversary, Staple Design collaborated with Cole Haan on these 2.ZERØGRAND Stitchlite + Staple Design sneakers. Featuring a breathable knit upper on the comfy Grand.OS midsole, the dress shoe styled sneakers come in marbled grey-on-grey with deep pink highlights—the classic Staple Pigeon colorway.

Adam Selman + Le Specs
Last Lolita Sunglasses
$120

Designed in collaboration with Le Specs, Adam Selman's collection of sunglasses is nothing if not eye-catching and bold. The future-retro Last Lolita shades are sharp cat-eye shapes and come in five colorways. Crafted with quality, these sunglasses offer maximum UV protection with category three lenses.

Penguin Random House
Things Are What You Make of Them
$9

From CH favorite Adam J Kurtz comes another book of positive vibes: "Things Are What You Make of Them: Life Advice for Creatives." Entirely handwritten on perforated tear-and-share pages, the book is full of advice, inspiration and empathy for creatives of all kinds. In Kurtz's classic style, it's cheeky and funny, but ultimately kind, generous and empowering. If you're feeling a creative block, open at any page.

Royal Fern
Phytoactive Cleansing Balm
$75

Royal Fern's Phytoactive Cleansing Balm is unlike any other we've used. The soft gel-like balm feels at first like a regular face cleanser, but once applied it doesn't foam or become milky. Made with green tea extract, hyaluronic acid, vitamin C from Acerola cherry, and jojoba oil, it's nourishing and gentle—but cleans the skin without stripping it. Rich in antioxidants, this luxurious product is free of parabens, mineral oils, sulfates, detergents and synthetic colors. Price is in Euros.

Little Lovely Company
Brontosaurus Lamp
$13

Free from BPA, lead and phthalate, this happy little dinosaur will brighten up any child's room. Providing a soft glow, the pale gray Brontosaurus can be used as a nightlight, thanks to its clever internal self-timer which switches itself off after 15 minutes. Running on LR44 batteries (which come included), this dino light should last for 20 hours before needing new batteries. Price is in Euros.

Chronicle Books
It's Great to Create
$12

NYC-based artist Jon Burgerman has just released a fun and inspiring activity book called "It's Great to Create: 101 Fun Creative Exercises for Everyone." Perfect for anybody who wants to unleash their artistic side, but isn't sure where to start, Burgerman's book offers lots of ideas—from making art with cereal, combining several markers to create a "Megapenopolis," to adding googly eyes to just about anything, there are plenty of off-beat and entertaining ideas.

Verloop
Borders Colorblock Knit Throw
$98

Available in four different (but equally cheery) colorways, Verloop's "Borders" colorblock knitted throw is ideal for autumn's transitional weather. Complete with handmade pom-poms at the corners, the blanket has a playful edge, but it's certainly at home in an adult house.
