[GIFTED] Dear Husband Magnet 

Traditional gender roles aside, if you're in a relationship, you find ways to divvy up the household chores, hopefully as fairly as possible.  One of you likes cooking but hates doing the laundry, so person A gets their meals cooked for them constantly while person B has clean socks and underwear without having to go to the laundromat.  Sounds good, right?  Teamwork makes the dream work!

HOWEVER, life is friggin' hard.  Sometimes we get sidetracked and our unofficial duties slip through the cracks.  But even the most understanding partner will get all "WTF" on you when they see that they have no clean underwear for the week or no dinner to be had.  I'M HOLDING UP MY END OF THE BARGAIN, WHY AREN'T YOU?, they're thinking.  

Welllllllll—it is what it is, right?  Hang up this Dear Husband Magnet ($9, Meriwether) and remind your partner that hey, you tried, but sometimes he's gonna have to fend for himself.

[GIFTED] Wilson Brass Keyring


When you were young and broke, things like keychains mattered about 0% to you.  Here's what you had on your keyring: a bottle opener, your gym member key card, a million keys that you really no longer need to hold onto but you keep on your key ring because they're so friggin' hard to take off, and some dumbass keychain you got when you were drunk on Spring Break.  

But now that you're getting older, you want to be surrounded by nice things, especially if you subscribe to the whole "everyday carry" philosophy, which basically amounts to the thought that if you use something every day, it should be high-quality and something that you genuinely like and appreciate.  SO, if you're looking to ditch the shitty keychains of your youth in favor of an upgrade, look no further than this Wilson Brass Keyring ($15, Modern Anthology).  Made out of solid brass, its simple closure allows you to swap keys in and out easily, and the colorful rubber bit on the end adds a little stylistic flair to an otherwise utilitarian piece.

[GIFTED] Incognito Flask

Picture it: you're going to the beach.  You've got a ton of shit to lug there—chairs, coolers, umbrellas, towels, books/magazines that you won't read, etc.  You've got a ton of beer and food, but you want to bring something else to whet your whistle.  Maybe some tequila, for instance.  Maybe some FIREBALLLLLLLLLL if you really want to have a shitshow on your hands. But you don't want to add to the weight by bringing a glass bottle.  Introducing the answer to this alcohol-on-the-go conundrum: the Incognito Flask ($7, Vapur). Lightweight and durable, this guy holds up to 10 oz of liquid (that's 10 shots for those of you playing along at home) and collapses down to nothing when empty.  Things are about to get rowdy.

[GIFTED] Fries!

As we get older, our tastes tend to get more refined.  You used to love to down whole bottles of Snapple Pink Lemonade but now you can't stomach how sickly sweet it is.  You used to hate spinach and now you think it tastes pretty damn good when sauteed in olive oil with a little garlic.  Life is weird, and so are our tastebuds. 

But there are some people for whom this phenomenon doesn't exist.  Their eating habits never graduated from the preferred dinner of eight-year-olds (french fries and chicken fingers).  You spend a lot of time coming up with restaurant suggestions whenever you get together because this person won't eat [insert delicious ethnic food here].  But, listen—you can roll your eyes as much as you want, but when it comes down to it, you can't REALLY argue with this fact: fries are delicious.  Pizza is delicious.  Chicken fingers are delicious.

So, embrace the infantile eating habits of your stupid friends and enjoy the simple things in life, like french fries, hot out of the fryer.  Sit together and pore over Fries: An Illustrated Guide to the World's Favorite Food ($11, Amazon) and tell him how right he is and how wrong you were about kale chips.  And, hey, if you want to make french fries fancy, just add some truffle to it.  TRUFFLE FRIES.  SO ADULT.

[GIFTED] Poolside Ale

You begged your parents for a pool when you were a kid, and maybe you got one, or maybe you didn't (I did NOT get one).  Why?  Simply put—summertime activities revolved around whomever had a pool (underground always trumped aboveground in the backyard pool hierarchy).  If you had one, your popularity and social status skyrocketed.  If you didn't, you were left trying to convince your friends that running through a sprinkler or setting up a Slip 'n' Slide was just as fun as diving into a pool (wrong x 1,000).

And even though you're an adult now, having access to a pool (whether it's on the roof of your swanky apartment building or in your very own backyard) still makes you mega popular.  Everyone wants to get the hell out of the city in the summer, and if you've got a pool, a grill, and a fridge full of beers, your friends will make their way to your door in droves.  Yes, even if you live in NEW JERSEY.    

And what better beer to provide your friends with for poolside imbibing than Bell's Brewery Poolside Ale, which invokes every positive summertime memory around swimming.  The memories associated with being insecure in a bathing suit should stay where they belong—in the back room of your memory.
