Smartphone Projector 2.0
Luckies • $30
Watching videos on your smartphone, upgraded. This ingenious little projector is compatible with all types of phones, magnifying photos and videos up to 8x with adjustable focus and no power source necessary. What it lacks in fidelity, it makes up for in costing $30.
Colorful Backgammon Set
MoMA Design Store • $89
The 5,000-year-old Game of Kings gets a pop-art makeover care of the country’s most storied contemporary art museum. Now you just have to learn to play (it’s easy to pick up, but hard to master). Oh, and find a friend. An analog one.
Faux Fur Throw
Restoration Hardware • $389
Don’t let the names of the patterns (“African Lion”; “Timber Wolf”) fool you: these plush, enveloping and exceptionally stylish throw blankets are 100% synthetic, though no less comfy than the real thing. Great for long winter naps, costume parties and scaring the dog alike.
The Apothecarry Case • $219
These excuisite alderwood cases will keep your buds tidy, fresh and discreetly stowed away thanks to a Boveda humidity system uniquely designed for storing cannabis, airtight glass jars and — because they’re not for everyone — a lock. Beats a shoebox, that’s for sure.
