Montage Towels
Save 15%: Drying off with a sopping wet towel is not how anyone should start their morning. Made from 100 percent long-stapled cotton, Montage bath towels are woven with a curved weave, meaning they’re lightweight, breathable and dry more quickly than the average bath towel. This not only results in a better overall feel, one that’s both soft and absorbent, it reduces the chances that your daily towel grows mold or microscopic bacteria. Unless, of course, you like that sort of thing.

Use discount code GP15 for 15% off your entire Montage order.

Junghans Max Bill Mechanical Watch
Save $160: The Junghans Max Bill is a delightful timepiece that refuses to change. The watch’s Bauhaus aesthetic has barely evolved since its legendary Swiss designer Max Bill first penned the dial design in the 1950s. This model here is powered by a Swiss-made ETA 2801-2 hand-winding movement that’s packed up in a sleek, 34mm case. Yes, that’s fairly small, but it’s in line with the watch sizes of the era in which the Junghans was originally designed (the thin bezel and large dial also make it wear a bit larger than it really is, too). The Max Bill also happens to be very affordably priced, with an MSRP of $690, but you can get it even cheaper from Massdrop right now for just $530. — Oren Hartov

DeLonghi Nespresso Maker
Save 50%>The beauty of Nespresso machines is not the quality of the final product. Frankly, most machines make espressos that are virtually indistinguishable from one another. If you’ve never used one, they’re basically espresso versions of Keurig machines — easy, efficient producers of OK-tasting beverages. Hence why this deal on DeLonghi’s slightly sturdier, less plasticky Nespresso maker is worth pulling the trigger on. Though most of the items in its product description (the ones in caps) are either inconsequential or dubious (“Barista Grade”…), it does hold a lot more water than most, and is operated with a single button. — Will Price

Kershaw Scallion Pocket Knife
Save up to 69%: What makes a good everyday knife? Small blades have proven time and again that it isn’t always size. Kershaw’s Scallion is a testament to this idea. Created as a little brother to the company’s ever-classic Leek, the Scallion is a pocketable flipper with a 2.25-inch drop-point blade. The Scallion is built with the Ken Onion-designed SpeedSafe system, an assisted opening mechanism that helps the blade pop out rapidly but that doesn’t fall under the classification of a switchblade. Inside, the Scallion has a liner lock to keep its blade safely in place, and there’s a sliding Tip-Lock for additional assurance when the knife is closed.

Kershaw has dressed up the Scallion in various colors and with different handles over the years, and right now a handful of these different styles are on sale at Amazon for as much as 69% off. — Tanner Bowden
