With 20% of proceeds going to The Point Foundation (which works to empower LGBTQ+ students through scholarship funding, mentorship and more), these bright and cheerful swim trunks have a decidedly retro aesthetic. Made from a poly/elastane blend, they’re available men’s XS to XL, but thanks to their boxy shape, can be worn by all genders.
Utilizing double-walled stainless steel to keep drinks cold (or warm), Denver & Liely’s “Traveller” marries the spirit of a flask to the utility of an insulating thermos.

From queer-owned Wildfang, a brand committed to donating profits to various women- and LGBTQ+-focused organizations all year (in 2018 they raised $400k for charities), this six-panel cap puts it simply. Made with 100% cotton, the cap features an adjustable strap and a very positive message.
An update to Autodromo’s ’80s-inspired Group B automatic watches, the Group B Series 2 Automatic Corsica Blue features an exquisite, high-contrast dial that draws inspiration from that era’s racing tachometers.

A Miyota 9015 automatic movement powers the piece, which is light on the wrist and unrestrained in style.
The next generation of Ultimate Ears’ Wonderboom is the Wonderboom 2: while still portable, Bluetooth-capable, long-lasting and loud, this new iteration has some unbeatable features. New to this iteration is stereo-pairing with another Wonderboom 2, some 13 hours of playback, and a new fabric exterior. We especially enjoy its “outdoor mode,” which equalizes the speaker’s output and ultimately improves its ability to cut through noise (like chatter, cars or other nearby speakers) and is activated with a button on the speaker’s bottom panel. Available for pre-order now, the Wonderboom 2 is available in four colorways and is water- and dust-proof.
Handmade from organic cotton, Etee’s reusable food wraps are sustainable and compostable alternatives to plastic and paper bags.

Each one offers some 120+ uses and they can be composted when they’re no longer adhesive.
Hewn from Eastern Hardrock maple, aluminum and natural cork, Grovemade’s measuring set features a ruler, protractor and triangle.

With a sugarcane-based alcohol foundation and top notes of rosehip seed, jojoba and Italian bergamia oil, Noshinku’s bergamot hand sanitizer refreshes with each spritz. Unlike other hand sanitizers, it’s neither a gloopy gel nor chemically scented; rather it’s a light spray that smells almost like a perfume. Further, a slender, credit card-like design houses the liquid and makes it more portable than most.
Printed by Revel & Riot (a non-profit brand devoted to promoting LGBTQ+ equality), the “Electile Dysfunction” T-shirt speaks out against “faulty voting machines, gerrymandering, cyber attacks, the Electoral College, voter purges, voter suppression and bullying and harassment at the polls.” Printed on 100% ring-spun cotton, this boxy shape is ideal for all genders and comes in sizes small to XXL.
From 1914 to 1925 Henry Ford and Thomas Edison went on annual road trips under the moniker “The Vagabonds”—they only ceased because their fame made the trips impossible to coordinate. The two traveled in order to survey the condition of America’s roads, in conjunction with the exponential growth of the automotive industry. The pair may have ventured with chefs and butlers, but this book—written by former investigate journalist Jeff Guinn—focuses on the more engaging details surrounding the duo’s relationship.
With a pleasant aroma of organic eucalyptus and lavender, Beam’s “The Fixer” salve is soothing for muscular aches and pains—and for the mind.
