Collapsible Laundry Basket 

When you were growing up, presumably not in a big city, having a washer and dryer in your home wasn't considered a badge of honor or a sign that you "MADE IT," it was just a normal thing that literally everyone had. But then you moved to the city, and after having to lug 30 pounds of laundry to the laundromat, you realized that having a washer and dryer IN-UNIT was a sign that you made it.

Truth: if you live in New York City and have a washer and dryer in your actual apartment (I'm not talking about the creepy shared washer and dryers that populate a decent amount of New York's apartment buildings), it means that what you're paying in rent is an amount that would make the folks back home keel over and die, ergo, YOU'VE MADEEEEEEEE ITTTTTTT, even if it's the world's smallest washer and dryer set that can only handle a pillow case, a t-shirt, and one sock at a time.

That said, just because you have this precious amenity that people across all five boroughs would kill for doesn't mean you live in a palace. New York City apartments—even when tricked out with basic amenities—are small. That's why this Collapsible Laundry Basket ($40) is perfect for small spaces like your fancy ass (still miniscule) apartment.  It folds out to full size, but collapses flat so you can shove it wherever you have room for it (virually nowhere, but that's YOUR PROBLEM).

Mission Critical Baby Carrier

A hilarious thing happens when certain uber-macho, alpha males have babies—they become super fucking softies, especially if said babies happen to be girls.  They start carting them around, looking after their every whim, and it's incredibly adorable.  But when these guys morph into Mr. Mom, they tend to get grief from their other bro buddies (typically the ones who are single or childless) that they've gone soft.  This Mission Critical Baby Carrier ($179) will help him keep his cred while still carting around his kid, which is literally all he's interested in now.  Sorry, boys.

GoBites Trio

While coming up with tools for eating alfresco is something camping aficionados have practically perfected, you don't have to be an outdoorsy person to find this GoBites Trio ($12, Amazon) incredibly useful. Featuring a fork, knife, and spoon that snap into a compact plastic case, the GoBites Trio is perfect to keep in your desk at work, in your purse, in your diaper bag, or in the glove compartment of your car.  Because, hey, you never know.

First of All T-Shirt 

For my fellow people in the NNR Club (the "never not riled" club, for the uninitiated), everyone in your orbit is constantly ready for you to launch into one of your signature Julia Sugarbaker-style rants.  Typically, they're humorous and entertaining—there are few people who can truly get torqued up by mudane things like slow walkers and people who talk loudly on their phones while on mass transit.  So, for the people who start sentences with "LISTEN" or "FIRST OF ALL," for those for whom no issue is too small to have a fierce, loud opinion about, this First of All T-Shirt ($28, Thug Life Shirts) is perfect.  Wear it loud and proud.

Me & You Pencils 

There are certain things that just go together.  Bread and butter, milk and cookies, alcohol and bad decisions—the list goes on.  So when you're getting married and you're SURE that you've found the perfect complement to you (the mac to your cheese, if you will), these Me & You Pencils ($70 for 70, Knot & Bow) are the perfect favor for your bridal shower or your wedding itself.  Adorable and useful, that's a wedding favor we can get behind.
