Made to be slowly destroyed by your cat, this toy aptly dazzles them with movement and fuzzy, funky textures.

Brooklyn-based artist Carol Li blends sculpture, object and costume design into her kitsch yet elegant jewelry line, Janky Jewels. Handmade by Li, the “Telephone” necklace demonstrates her unique ability to form style-defying pieces. It melds the classic beauty of freshwater pearls with the modern edge of a stainless steel chain, unified by a baroque freshwater pearl pendant. As each piece is made to order, Li recommends ordering three weeks out from the preferred delivery date and before 3 December for guaranteed holiday arrivals.
Handcrafted in Connecticut from durable punk wood, this incense bundle utilizes essential oils to repel bugs. The scent options include: lemongrass, orange and sage (a citrus-led formula); sage, coffee, cinnamon and cedarwood (a rich, warm and spicy blend); and tea tree, lavender and neem (a herb-heavy and minty aroma). Each stick provides around two hours of burn time and, due to their 19-inch length, can be staked directly into soil or placed in an incense holder. Either way, it’s a sophisticated take on conventional (and potent) insect repellants.
As Hudson Whiskey’s oldest release yet, Four Part Harmony likens itself to a jazz quartet for its harmonious blend of four grains: corn, rye, wheat and barley.

Aged for a minimum of seven years for complex and lasting flavor, this limited edition release is a resounding liquor that expands the boundaries of American whiskey.

From LikeMindedObjects, the Plant Shelf is a whimsically floating organizational piece that doubles as decor. As its name suggests, the shelf is the perfect home for plants, as it enables vines and leaves to cascade down the wall, but the Plant Shelf can be used with various other objects.

The shelf is welded with a glossy powder coat that comes in a playful range of colors, including green, orange, blue and more.

The aptly named Molten Ring looks liquified and gooey, and comes in various lovely colorways.
