There's a lot to like about this shirt. It's weighted for optimal winter and early spring layering. It's got a unique, exploded houndstooth check pattern to stand apart from the other standard plaid shirts. And it's sustainably produced from French-made recycled fabric. It's finished with eco-friendly corozo nut buttons, two generous chest pockets and adjustable cuffs for easy rolling.

This is a nightstand upgrade that checks a lot of boxes. It's a handsome stand-alone alarm clock with a throwback design based on one of Braun's early digital alarm clocks designed by Dieter Rams and Dietrich Lubs from the 1970s. It features a crescendo alarm that gets louder if it's not turned off and the snooze button is a handy touch pad located along the top of the clock for easy weekend sleep-ins. Plus, the back features a charging pad, so your phone can be tucked in, out of sight, but fully charged.

Can a sweater save the world? Okay, maybe not. But at a time when everyone is calling for “unity,” be the one who shows up (in person or on a video call) in this graphic sweater. The checkerboard pattern accented with squared-off peace signs is as punk as it is playful. And because it's cut from an ultra-soft mohair blend, it legit gives you warm and fuzzy feelings.

A classic shape with a shot of modern style. That's always a winning combination. This ceramic ashtray from Wacko Maria features an unconventional leopard print, which means it makes a bold statement wherever you set it down. It could be used on an entryway or desk to stash keys and other items. Or you could place it on a side table or coffee table for the express purpose of housing ashes.

If you burn a lot of candles, this is a brilliant solution. If you're as sad as we are when a favorite candle burns out, this brand offers a fill-up. Siblings is a sustainable candle brand that sends you a kit complete with scented wax and a wick. Just nuke the wax in the microwave (right in the compostable packaging) to melt it and then pour it into the vessel of your choice—could be a piece of pottery or the old jar from your favorite candle. It's as satisfying as it eco-conscious.
