Alpha Shovel 

If you live in a snowy place, you know that you can't just buy a shovel for $10 at Home Depot.  Well, you can, and then you can also watch it break in half the first time you try to dig yourself out of a massive snow fall. Nobody wants to deal with that shit.  

That's why the Alpha Shovel ($100, D-Mos Collective) is worth shelling out the extra cash.  Extra wide, extra deep, the shovel features a serrated edge to cut into ice, a collapsible handle for easy, compact storage, and a built-in, removable knife just for funsies.  It's the only shovel you'll ever need to buy.

Neon Signs

If you've ever looked around your home and thought, I wish this place looked more like my favorite place (aka a bar), you can make it happen by investing in a Neon Sign (Starting $110, Neon MFG).  Made into fun shapes like palm trees, skulls, unicorns, or in phrases like "Stay Wild" and "Be Happy," you can deck out your at-home bar in the glow of neon and make believe you can still hang like you used to before you turned 30. You can also customize a sign specifically to your specifications. Party on.

Writer's Tears Whiskey

For every 100 people who introduce themselves at cocktail parties as "a writer," maybe 3 of them actually make a living doing it.  I could say I'm a writer, I guess, but I really make my living at my day job, in marketing (my fiance still likes to tell people I'm a writer because it sounds sexier, though).  

Even people who have found a way to make writing their actual profession—working at magazines and newspapers—typically end up being editors, while freelance hacks grind out the actual articles editors assign to them. Ask someone who holds an editor title what they miss the most and they'll all say, "I miss writing."  

And look, it's hard being a writer.  If you're a novelist, you have to create something from literally nothing.  If you're a reporter, you have to make people's lives and shitty quotes sound interesting and compelling.  If you're a blogger, you have to find a way to make someone click on an article about gravy boats.  It's hard.

Know a writer?  Get them this Writer's Tears Whiskey ($102, Masters of Malt) and laugh and laugh as they pretend that they didn't dream of a different life for themselves, one where their manuscript wasn't rejected by 30 different publishers.  Pour one out.

Jazz Things Up Boom Box Bag 

While a lot of people are precious about old school forms of listening to music—record players, boom boxes, and the like—even THEY have to admit that the best invention that happened to music in the past few decades is the MP3.  Not even the iPod, but the MP3—digitized versions of songs that allow you to have your entire music library with you everywhere you go, and the ability to play it through whatever bluetooth speaker is available.

Sure, there's something quaint about carting a giant boom box to the beach and listening to 24 songs max because that's all the two cassette tape deck could handle, but you know what's better?  Carrying around a thing that's the size of a deck of cards that has 3,000 songs on it.  Basically: we're never going back to boom boxes.    

You can still give a hat tip to boom boxes (and appropriate hip hop culture while you're at it, you big phony) with this Jazz Things Up Boom Box Bag ($398, Kate Spade), which is guaranteed to get you tons of compliments while you're strolling down the street listening to music on your iPhone.

FishHunter PRO 

Back in the day, people went fishing because they needed food to live.  Somewhere along the line, though, fishing became less of a necessity for survival and more of a hobby for guys who wanted an excuse to sit on a boat with their friends all day, drinking beer and maybe reeling in a fish every now and then.  The great irony is that "going fishing" was never really about catching fish.  It was about relaxing.  Time well wasted and all of that shit.

But hayyyyy everyone—make way for the millennials who don't understand why you would do something if there's no actual pay off in the end.  Why sit on a boat all day with a line in the water, soaking in the sun and catching up with old buddies only to catch one fish when you can bring in a whole HAUL of fish and Instagram the shit out of it?  The FishHunter PRO ($137, Amazon) will help you do exactly that.  

Cast it into the water when you're fishing, pair it with the device's companion App on your phone, and get real-time sonar read-outs that will tell you exactly where dem fish at.  Bring it fishing with your father and watch him scoff at your "stupid technology" and then see the smile fade from his face when he realizes that you've caught more fish than he ever has.  TAKE THAT, DAD.
