Two-Pound-Box

In light of the fact that everyone else seems to be hellbent on making everything as microscopic as possible (Zoolander phone, anyone?), it’s a nice change of pace to find products with a little bit of meat on them. This two pound cast iron box from Anthropologie is a perfect example. Made of cast iron, the “box” bears a close resemblance to the types of weight plates people used to work out with before the Bowflex and the Shake Weight, it’s just a keepsake sized container. You can store your pushpins, phone numbers and tiny office knickknacks in it, or your can just use it as a paperweight. Regardless of what you use it for, you’re going to have a hard time finding a desktop accessory as cool as the two pound box for less than $10. That’s reason enough for us.

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.
