NOTGIFTGUIDE 2017- 11.09.17


NOTCOT Collection Of Stuff For People!!! Things we love, things we want, and things we’ve either bought or nearly bought for friends. There’s a little random awesomeness for everyone on our lists here…

Gift guides often get so formal with the categories and over-simplification of your recipient’s interests… or they push things people want you to buy so hard. This is more just a list of awesome stuff we like that you COULD give someone - or buy for yourself. The only criteria? We like it.

Explore the collection on the next page!

Also… for EVEN MORE random ideas - i’m slowly adding stuff we have/love to thisNOTCOT AMAZON SHOP( Where yes, we make pennies on the dollar off things you buy, but we’re sharing because we’re addicted to the instant gratification of Prime and really use it, not for your pennies. Though every penny helps my Prime addiction?)

porsche1.jpgWe’ve been car shopping lately, and both the hunt for a SUV/passenger car and a project car have resulted in Shawn and I circling around Porsche again… keep hearing so many good things about thePorsche Macan GTS!而且这很难不保持在寻找完美的工程车的希望购物老式911。而对于孩子们在那里 - 在保时捷木制赛车卡车with three race cars is too cute.

shelves.jpgAnne Linde Ledges- the perfect bedside, kitchen, bathroom, etc. shelves that are both functional and minimal. They hold and hide all kinds of things, and are magnetic too! Made of powder coated steel.

geode.jpgNervous System’s new Geode Puzzles with their new Maze Puzzle Cut Styletake jigsaw puzzles to whole new levels! From the mesmerizing patterns to the insanely difficult new piece creation algorithm.

mission.jpgMission Workshop一直把惊人的袋子生存寿命。我曾经爱过我Hauser Hydration Packfor years now and it’s held up amazingly. Their latest temptation that is available for pre-order is该Rhake背包, which has so many pockets to keep you organized, it’s going to take some getting used to where all your stuff is. BUT once you have a system down, it seems like another bag that could take care of you for years to come. Love that you can upgrade any of the Rhakes to cobra clips too!

iphonex.jpgTheApple iPhone X- honestly, what can i say? You either want it, or don’t. We’ve got at least 3 ordered here at NOTCOT so far… so you know what side we’re falling on. (And i’m kind of really excited and loving it so far!!!)

farmacylush.jpgFarmacy首先引起我注意他们的大包装(可爱的图形,从木盖,磁锅铲这么多的细节),但尝试他们的产品迷上了我。蜂蜜滴保湿和蜂蜜面膜药水都是新贵,并在Honey Harvest Gift Set,这是一个不错的,简单的,像样的人的礼物。

On the crazier, experiential bathroom side of things…LUSH Jelly Bombs- 浴炸弹的香味和泡沫,并把你的浴缸变成胶状的果冻(!这让你的皮肤超软)Read more about how it works.

uniqlo.jpgUniqlo has great basic tshirts, but even more fun are their limited edition collaborations, like the currentUniqlo x MoMA SPRZ Eames Collectionand theUniqlo x Disney Star Wars Artist collection(其特点NOTCOT收藏:詹姆斯必威体育网站·贾维斯,凯文·里昂,和Geoff McFetridge)

illuminatomy.jpgCarnovskymakes magic happen with colored glasses and tri-layered imagery. There has been wallpaper, stickers, packaging and more, but the most exciting and accessible (and educational) format is definitely picture books. Their first bookIlluminaturetakes you into the layers of natural scenes, where the red lens shows you creatures of the day, blue shows you creatures of the night, and green shows you the plant life. For more detailshere’s the NOTCOT feature

This year, they’ve launched their second book,Illuminatomythat gives you a deep dive into the human body! Red shows you the skeleton, green the muscles, and blue the organs! It’s trippy, it’s beautiful, and you find new details with every glance. I’ve been tempted to get them for every kid i know!

leatherman.jpgMyLeatherman Wave一直在我身边,因为我是16(因此,近20年来),我已经使用了一切从做我的指甲打造电脑翻新房屋和修剪树木......这是不可缺少的。虽然从来没有需要我来取代它,我妥协了,并得到了一个黑色的太前几年,但不锈钢仍是我最喜欢的(黑色能凑够断位)。

On newer Leatherman goodies - this year theLeatherman Treadgets thinner! The airplane friendly, wearable multi tool slims down with the LT model that is far more wearable for those of us with thinner wrists.

blowmeup.jpgLED + Inflatable =英戈·毛雷尔打击我车灯。这是可笑的简单,却又如此的功能和通用性。

silkweatshirt.jpgThe Reset Silk Sweatshirt- it’s that perfect blend of casual basics, dressed up. They just added a grey option to the original black.

shaperfestool.jpgThe整形地- “The world’s first handheld cnc machine” is supposed to be shipping… we’re anxiously awaiting ours! On other tools we’re lusting after… the newFestool Cordless Sandersare looking pretty tempting too…

miircampcups.jpgOMG theseMiiR Insulated Camp Cups- they keep hot things hot and cold things cold, and neither burn you, nor sweat with condensation… but most importantly, they feel great in your hands, and look so clean and minimal. They are nice and thin (compared to most other insulated cups) making them great to drink from even without the travel lid. I’ve been a bit obsessed with them since firstreviewing them on NOTCOT in March。(And yes, i’m still dreaming up getting custom ones made. They look great screen printed!)

dyson.jpgWhile my natural instinct would be to say that hair dryers and vacuums are the worst gifts… i can’t express how much joy (?!?!?!?!) both myDyson Supersonic Hair DryerandDyson Handheld Vacuumshave brought me. Both hair drying and vacuuming are arduous tasks, but somehow their devices have magically made them faster, easier, and lighter jobs while still looking beautifully designed. I have been through three handhelds since my early apartments, upgrading as their battery life and sucking power increased (always worth it!) with the older ones shuffling into living in the garage, etc.

This year, there is a newDyson Supersonic Hair Dryer colorway in Black/Purple with a Black Case

barkshop.jpgA little something for the dogs of your people…BarkShop - the store from the folks behind BarkBoxseems to be having a lot of fun with ridiculously amusing toys for dogs and their people. From fish tacos and dumplings to creatures of the deep, cactus, hugging hedgehogs and more (from the absurdly luxurious doggie rosé and champagne to avocado toast, selfie sticks, donald and hillary and so much more…) Also - you can find a lot of their toys at Target now.

fishtanks.jpgIt has been a big year for Cannabis, and with the growing legality and larger markets opening up, this also means higher quality products and new innovations in design and packaging. These two are definitely our favorites this year that span all of those criteria.

hmbldtfirst grabbed our attention with their packaging, branding, and custom vape pen (seethe NOTCOT unboxing), but they’ve kept our attention with their quality and unique approach to the space. Their focus on the user experience and the medicinal nature of their product has made it the perfect entry point for those looking to explore cannabis vaping. They have even introduced a new smaller 50 dose pen!

On the other end of the spectrum, theAbsolute Xtracts x Jeremy Fish Fish Tanks Limited Editionis as delicious as it is beautiful. Of course i’m biased with my love of Jeremy Fish’s artwork, but how fun are the design details? (See them all in the必威体育网站NOTCOT拆箱)这也是他们新的高效力CLEAR大麻油的第一个版本,这Tangie真的包一拳打。

DOsomething.jpgEliza Frye DO SOMETHING Bundle屏幕——粉色印花t恤髻dled with two 18”x24” and two 12”x18” digital prints plus stickers. Give it all as one gift, or break it up into many. It’s the perfect reminder for us all as 2017 comes to a close.

rokuultra.jpgTheRoku公司超- the latest upgrade to the top of the line Roku is a tempting upgrade. It will output HD, 4K and HDR… and has both USB and microSD slots that make it easy to watch files when not streaming. Like the previous model, you can also plug headphones into the remote for private listening (AKA when someone is asleep next to you?) We’ve used ours more than i ever imagined the last few years - popping it in our bag whenever we head to a vacation rental, as well as for watching files via USB and streaming netflix, amazon, etc.

colettecal.jpgWhile 2017 also marks the end of Colette… you can still enjoy the some of Colette’s favorite artists everyday of 2018 with the科莱特2018日历including Jean Jullien, Jeremyville, James Jarvis, Jean André, Tiffany Cooper, Vahram Muratyan, Darcel, Soledad, Geneviève Gauckler, Ceizer, Kevin Lyons, Amit.

biosphere.jpgTiny plant worlds for your desktop…Botanica Sanctuary and Biodomesetups are stunning! The tiny sanctuaries can keep a little moss going with perfect little droplets dripping right back down to hydrate them. Though based in Australia, they are available stateside this holiday seasonat Terrain

kindles.jpgI’ve fallen back in love with theKindlesince i discovered how many ebooks i can borrow online through my public library (LAPL has so many amazing digital resources!Check out thisNOTCOT feature on all the design magazines i found。) I’ve saved a fortune on cookbooks and bestsellers and quick reads by using LAPL andOverdriveand their app,Libby。My new habit when i run into books i’m curious about is to search/hold them on Overdrive first - and hopefully end up reading them on myKindle

Currently my favorite is theKindle Paperwhite......但新Kindle Oasis是相当诱人 - 它的防水!所以超级浴,游泳池,沙滩友好!

ursamajor.jpgUrsa Major always has great holiday gift sets- and their Golden Hour Recovery Cream is one of my winter favorites! This year’s temptations are theThe Natural Skin Care Junkie Treatment Set而面露The Exercise Freak Workout Essentials

slippillow.jpgHow did i never give in to the ridiculousness of a silk pillowcase before? You sleep cooler, and silly as it sounds, my hair and skin do feel better! Unlike cotton, silk doesn’t suck the moisture out of… you and your hair. (Downside, definitely better if you hand wash these weekly and hang dry them! But worth it!) TheSlip Silk Pillowcase- 似乎是最豪华,最常见,而在质量一致 - 一个沉重的22个Mommes。我最初蘸我的脚趾我的真丝枕套世界从亚马逊便宜,低质量的选项which were ok, but not NEARLY as good… you have to be careful to make sure it’s really pure silk (not that poly combo), and the thicker and higher quality, the better.

marble.jpgOn lust worthy, impractically gorgeous, kitchen/art objects from Editions MIlano - Can’t get the大理石小姐罐子和令人惊叹Victoria Tea Set从我的脑海!

elemental.jpgOn a different twist on action figures -I Am Elemental刚刚推出Series 2: Wisdom Warriors作为后续行动,其初始系列1:勇气。Powerful female characters… to help teach kids to build their character. (Also a fun graphic desk toy for the right giftee!) They feel very Batman the Animated Series meets Wonder Woman…

lodgemini1.jpg洛奇2017年假日煮锅- an adorable 3.5” cast iron skillet just right for single serving corn bread, brownies, and egg or more… or hang it on the tree?

rumpl.jpgSome people like their blankets plush and others love that sleeping bag nylon feel… now for those who like BOTH, there’s theRumpl Sherpa Puffy Blanket。Machine washable and just as ready for adventuring outdoors or cuddling up on the couch, this latest addition has great little details (my favorite is the secret pocket and built in straps!) I was initially skeptical of how soft the 100% Polyester Sherpa fleece would feel, but they sent over a sample, and it is SO SO soft, my new problem will be keeping Bucky from taking it over.

cannabisadvent.jpgThere are Advent Calendars and Holiday Countdown Sets for everything… including cannabis of course. Here’s one fromCoast2Coast Medicinals in Vancouver,从码头边大麻在华盛顿的冒险日历(also shown is their cute 2016 design) and theHerbal Dispatch Advent Calendar(also Vancouver based).

loadout0000.jpgTheYETI Loadout Bucketcomplete with球童andlidare kind of amazing combined. Perfect for the person with everything, or the person who needs nothing, or the person who… well, it should work for just about anyone, it’s SO useful and well designed! Seemy full obsessive unboxing/rant about it

amazongifts.jpg而对于更随机的想法 - 我慢慢加入的东西,我们有/爱这个NOTCOT AMAZON SHOP( Where yes, we make pennies on the dollar off things you buy, but we’re sharing because we’re addicted to the instant gratification of Prime and really use it, not for your pennies. Though every penny helps my Prime addiction?)

notcot.jpg… and on tried and loved products… we’re still using ourreflective leather NOTCOT keychains and bag tags, and they are holding up amazingly! If you’re interested, i’m making more this holiday season! (And feel freeto email us如果你是在自定义标签好奇,如果我们在城里,我们也许能够做一些项目之间!)
