Crafted by Fish Design (architect Gaetano Pesce’s studio), the Big Collina Basket is a striking Italian-made bowl that stands out from all angles. Its almost-melting appearance is due to its flexible resin construction, yet it’s durable and made for plenty of use. Available in purple or blue, it’s an artful addition to any tabletop.
Woven from 100% Global Organic Textile Standard-certified cotton and finished with a non-toxic coating, Haps Nordic’s handcrafted sandwich bag is a reusable alternative. Sealed with velcro, the pouch allows contents to breathe rather than sweat (and condensate) inside. They’re available in eight different colors and patterns.
With notes of citrus and salt atop well-rounded smoke, Montelobos’ 86 proof mezcal represents the spirit’s more refined side. Made in Santiago Matatlán from 100% certified-organic Espadín agave, the Oaxacan product is a safe bet for those curious about mezcal, as well as those with a developed palate.
Infused with 15mg of hemp-derived CBD, Aurora’s rosemary grapefruit-flavored elixir is soothing but ultra-subtle. It invokes a feeling of imbibing but it doesn’t inebriate or induce unsavory side effects. Piney but slightly sweet and citrusy, the beverage is delectable, effervescent and does well on its own or over ice. You’ll receive four bottles for the listed price.
Made from a blend of cotton and polyester, these Scholten & Baijings-designed tea towels from HAY make for an easy, eco-friendly alternative to paper towels. They’re wider and longer than traditional tea towels, in order to promote absorbency. Available in six different colorways, each set comes with two contrasting towels.
Explicitly defined as potent, but dosed to be divvied out into 10mg shots, Colorado-based Keef Brand’s THC-infused lemonade is a sweet and summery addition to any virgin base. Whether it’s mixed into sparkling water (our preference) or into a complex mocktail, the lemon flavor tastes more like a lemon candy than artificial lemon flavoring. Plus, it grants a sizable dose of Vitamin C, B3, B6 and B12. To find it near you, refer to Keef Brands’ product locator page.
Packaged as a set of five, STRAWGRACE’s straws are crafted from laboratory-grade glass and are BPA-, lead- and plastic-free. Each straw has a different hued tip (teal, yellow, green red or blue) so sippers can keep track of their drink. They’re also easy to wash as there are no bends, and each set comes with two cleaning brushes.
Spicy, smoky and funky—this sambal-inspired hot sauce is a collaboration between chef Edward Lee and Bourbon Barrel Foods. With a base of fermented chili bean paste, the sauce is then blended with fish and soy sauce providing an umami kick. The result combines flavors from Southeast Asia and the American South for something quite special.
A non-alcoholic standout in Suntory’s beverage portfolio, BOSS Coffee is a line of canned, caffeinated drinks. One of our favorites from the range, the Cold Café Au Lait, is now available stateside after years of success in Japan. Its perfectly proportioned formula of flash-brewed coffee, cream and sweetness afford easy drinking in all seasons. For the listed price you’ll receive 12 eight-ounce cans (with the brand’s William Faulkner-depicting logo)—which are best served cold or over ice.
Czech natural winemaker Milan Nestarec’s Danger 380 Volts is a funky and dry pétillant naturel that includes refreshing notes of apple, grapefruit and white peach. Crafted in the pétillant naturel style (aka the méthode ancestrale, in which wines are bottled before initial fermentation is finished, resulting in a natural sparkling), it’s slightly bubbly, cloudy and has an almost cider-like quality.
Inspired by the famed sandwich that’s been served at the Master’s Tournament since 1934, Lillie’s Q fuses crunchy kettle chips with delectable pimento cheese flavor. The traditional southern staple becomes snackable and sharable in these crisp snacks. For the listed price, you’ll receive 12 5oz bags.
Collaborating with PMIA (Proudly Made in Africa), MIA’s confectionary offerings are made entirely in African countries and benefit local communities. This bar in particular—which employs rich, dark chocolate and baobab powder (a superfood with numerous health benefits) from Madagascar—is slightly salty, but leaves a fresh, red fruit flavor behind. Price is in Pounds.
Gluten-free and vegan, Hippeas chickpea puffs are high in fiber and protein but low in fat. The super-crunchy snacks are made with all-natural ingredients and come in various flavors (from BBQ to vegan cheddar), but our pick is the zesty and slightly spicy Sriracha Sunshine.
Wilde Brands recently debuted a Himalayan Pink Salt flavor for their chicken chips (thinly cut pieces of chicken fried with tapioca flour) and it offers a complex, delectable taste, along with the high-protein nutritional value that their other snacks do. With zero grams of sugar and a low carb count, these will satisfy even the biggest potato chip enthusiast. A box includes four bags of chicken chips.
Available on Kickstarter now, MiiR’s Pourigami pour-over system is a carry-able coffee maker that doesn’t succumb to the constraints of instant coffee alternatives or clunky camping presses. Three sleek slats of stainless steel (in black, stainless steel or white) interlock and form a nest for coffee filters. The system weighs just four ounces and, when unassembled, packs flat. Testing it out at this year’s Outdoor Retailer, we observed that it outperforms presses and clears a significant amount of space in your backpack.
Buying in bulk to reduce the amount of packaging waste we use requires employing other storage vessels. Stasher’s reusable stand-up bags are constructed from non-toxic 100% pure platinum silicone that’s safe for dishwashers and microwaves. Each can hold 56 fluid ounces (or 12 cups dry) and they are available in aqua or clear.
