If it existed we’d quickly purchase an alarm clock that started dispensing caffeine directly into our body about 10 minutes before the alarm actually went off.  Basically, we want to limit the coffee-less downtime that occurs from the moment we roll out of bed til the second our coffee maker finishes churning out our morning brew.  Until somebody gets on that alarm clock idea, we’ll pick up the new PIXIE from Nespresso.  It heats up to brewing temperature in 25 seconds – less time than it takes us to locate the sweetener in our early morning haze.  The whole pod unit is super compact so you’ll have room for all your other kitchen countertop gadgets like the portable smoker, SousVide Supreme and the Slap Chop (what, it’s a helpful product).  It’s available in a variety colors and will gear you up for the day’s work in no time.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
