Rolo Travel Bag
There are those few who enjoy the banal rituals of travel. For the rest of us, there’s Rolo, a roll-up closet that makes checking in (and out) easier. Three compartments, shaped by military-grade nylon mesh, help to organize one’s travel wardrobe, while the entire accessory rolls up and compresses a fifteenth of the size of a conventional suitcase for quick packing and efficiency. $50

Huzi Christmas Set
The bright-minded creatives at Huzi craft quirky high-quality products to inspire the kid in all of us. Their Christmas Set includes five different gift packages aimed at bringing back “analog play” for all ages. The Simplicity package includes a DIY set of car toys made of walnut, beech and poplar wood, finished in chalkboard (chalk included). $39+

Woolpower Full Zip Jacket 400
The family-owned Swedish company Woolpower manufactures mid-layer clothing to combat winter weather. In collaboration with the Swedish military, they engineered Ullfrotté Original, a breathable, fast-drying material derived from Patagonian wool that retains body heat, dry or wet. This sweater-jacket hybrid ensures max coverage and functionality, and, like all Woolpower products, bears the name of the seamstress responsible for it. $195

Boast X Red’s Outfitters Sunglasses
Inspired by the father of gonzo journalism, these limited-edition aviators honor Hunter S. Thompson’s “laid back aesthetic and ability to work classic and flamboyant pieces into his everyday wardrobe.” Straddling retro style and contemporary athleticism, they’re manufactured in the Lombardy region of Italy. Boast’s signature Japanese maple leaf logo comes engraved on the Carl Zeiss custom lenses. $165

Georg Console Table and Stool
With roots in both Sweden and Denmark, Christina Liljenberg Halstrøm calls herself a “Nordic designer”, which her minimal, functional aesthetic reflects. The Georg Collection features raw and untreated oak that transforms naturally over time depending on usage. This two-legged table rests against walls to stand, making for an understated entryway piece or a small desk that blends in with the rest of the room. $649

Quarto Font
Typography can make bad writing good and good writing better. Inspired by Dutch fonts found in 16th century choir books that were read from a distance, Quarto features dark strokes and crisp serifs for eye-catching headlines, in print and onscreen. Free for web use, installation starts at $199 and escalates from there. Free
