We all want cool stuff, but what separates the cool from the merely useful or stylish? Coolness happens when you just have to stop and marvel at the ingenuity and effectiveness of a thing. A lamp that charges your phone. A bamboo thermos. A UV flashlight. A gadget for shooting Nutella into a banana. A baby shusher. What parent hasn’t wished and prayed for a baby shusher? We like to think that all of the items we’ve selected for you are things you’ll find yourself reaching for all the time. From sleek jewelry organizers to glowing cat lamps, there’s no denying that these products are the very definition of cool.
