Lofree Keyboard

There's a contingent of people (hipsters, mostly) who go crazy over retro things.  Retro clothes, retro accessories, retro drinks, retro moustaches—the works.  These are the people who collect vintage typewriters and first-edition copies of books they claim they've read.     

And while these people covet typewriters, what was once the most modern machine in the world is now a really intricate paperweight.  So, what do these precious hipsters do if they long to hear the retro clackity-clack of typewriter keys but need to use an actual computer to get work done? They get a LoFree Keyboard ($79), which mimics the sound of a typewriter, ensuring their roommates will hate them forever.

Function of Beauty Personalized Shampoo & Conditioner

There are a billion hair care products on the market, all promising amazing results for all different types of hair, but trying to pick out the right product is straight-up exhausting.  Do you have oily hair or frizzy hair?  Do you want your hair to smell like mangoes or a babbling mountain lake?  What's your bath time situation look like? Do you take quick, cold showers, or do you take long, hot showers where you cry softly because the running water muffles the sounds of your sobs from your family who's just outside the bathroom door?

IT'S ALL TOO MUCH. Good thing there's Function of Beauty, a company that concocts Personalized Shampoo & Conditioner ($36) just for you. They worked with MIT-trained engineers to come up with a hair quiz that spits out over 12 billion combinations, guaranteeing that no two shampoos or conditioners are the same.

Wine Dispensing Tote 

Your mom is decidedly NOT a wine snob, preferring to hobnob with the likes of Bobby Mondavi at a little place called Sutter Home.  While everyone is discussing the body and the top notes they want in their perfect glass of wine, your mother wants one thing in a wine—a lot of it. That's why she'll love to get this Wine Dispensing Tote ($130, Uncommon Goods) for Mother's Day.  It's an adorable purse to carry around, but it's always party ready with her favorite bag of Franzia embedded in the bottom with a quick-pour spout.

Rad American Women A to Z

Listen up, nasty women—I know everything feels horrible right now and you vascillate between wanting to burn down a building or curl up into a ball and cry but buck up.  In times like these, it's important to remember that shit was always kind of shitty. In WWII, people couldn't eat sugar because of a little thing called RATIONING. Imagine being on a restrictive diet not because it's fashionable, but because the government was forcing you. I'm confident we now live in a society where there would be mass riots if someone tried to take away our soda pop, so progress, right?

Take inspiration from the past for use in the future via Rad American Women A to Z ($10, Amazon), which features 26 stories of amazing women who basically said, "fuck this shit" and did something amazing. It's the perfect gift for your daughter or for your ultra-conservative brother-in-law's kid. The future is female.

CreekKooler

The weather is getting warmer, and your calendar is getting filled with activities that involve spending time outdoors.  And if you're planning on spending any of your time outdoors boating, kayaking, or swimming, you're gonna wanna get a CreekKooler ($180, Kanooler Products).  A floating cooler that will hold up to 12 cans (with plenty of room for ice), the CreekKooler is perfect for any water-based activity you're doing where you want to have a cold one in your hand (read: all of them).  You can tether the cooler to your boat to save space inside, or you can just have it float around in your pool, making your own make-shift swim-up bar, right in your backyard (it even has build-in drink holders in the top of it).  Cheers to nice weather.
