  • Anchor Old Potrero 18th Century Style Rye


    A pet project of the Anchor Steam Brewery on San Francisco’s Potrero Hill, Old Poetrero Rye is their attempt to recreate the original American whiskey. Rye is nearly impossible to find in bars or liquor stores, so if you know a whiskey lover, this is a can’t-miss gift. Old Potrero is made in a small copper pot still at the distillery, and aged for a year in Oak barrels. There’s never enough to go around, so get yours while it’s in season and available.

  • Ohto Tasche Fountain Pen


    Wouldn’t you feel classier, more official, writing with a fountain pen? This one is a wee-tiny pen when closed, but then you open it and stick the cap on the end, and it makes for a full-sized fountain pen. A portable penmanship upgrade. (via Uncrate)

  • Ingenuitea


    My friend Heather cannot say enough about this teapot. The site has a very clear description of how it works: “When tea is ready, simply place it atop your cup. This will cause a valve at the bottom to release: crystal-clear tea flows down, while the mesh filter retains all the leaves.” Golf claps all around.

  • World Time Clock


    The best designers take elaborate concepts and express them simply. This clock makes me want to find Charlotte Van Der Waals so I can pet her pretty, pretty brain. To read the time in a particular time zone, you just roll the World Time Clock until the correct city is on top. (Each city represents one of the 24 global time zones.) Easy as pie, even with jet lag and a mean mini-bottle hangover.

  • Mighty Leaf Tea Sampler


    Delicious! When I admitted to being a tea freak, a bunch of my readers (most notably, Elise) sent notes urging us to post about Mighty Leaf Teas. I feel silly to have forgotten about Mighty Leaf for so long, because they’re an old favorite. Mighty Leaf packs tasty, whole-leaf tea into convenient, silky tea bags. (Most other tea bags are filled with crushed, bitter leaf flakes that are practically undrinkable.) This sampler gives your favorite tea snob 108 moments of peace, and many of the teas are even better on second brewing. Includes: Breakfast Americana, Earl Gold, Vanilla Bean, Orange Jasmine, Marrakesh Mint, Green Tea Tropical, African Nectar, Chamomile Citrus, and Mint Melange. (If you want the tea, but don’t need the pretty box and menu, you can purchase a refill box for only $54.)
