Brutal Truth Moisturizer 

We're not exactly sure where the concept of taking care of yourself took on a feminine bent, but having a self-care regimen is something dudes dismiss as something only for the fairer sex. Because of this, a lot of guys are reticent to adopt any kind of grooming routine aside from brushing their teeth and shaving (which, now that beards are en vogue, rarely happens anyway).    

Listen up, men—it's time to start taking care of your damn self.  Brutal Truth is a line of men's products believe that whole-heartedly, and this Brutal Truth Moisturizer ($32, Huckberry) is perhaps the first good step towards adopting a regular skincare routine.

Cinema Light Box 

When you were in college, you coveted the light up signs that were at the shitty bars you used to frequent. And even after you grew up and realized that a self-respecting 30-year-old can't have a Bud Light Lime sign hanging in her apartment, your magpie self never quite grew out of liking bright lights.  Enter the Cinema Light Box ($50, Huckberry), a mature way to inject a little light-up action in your home. It comes with 100 letters, numbers, and characters so you can switch out the messaging to your heart's content, and—unlike similar lightboxes and signs—it runs on batteries, so you don't have to hide an unsightly cord when you mount it on the wall.

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.
