Koostik-Mini-Koo-iPhone-Amplifier-Dock

Miniaturization goes hand in hand with most technological marvels. The screens all get bigger, but the device itself (whether it’s a cell phone or a TV) gets thinner and lighter thanks to tinier components. There’s no denying that the iPhone does a lot of things essential to your daily routine, but outputting audio at an reasonable (read: loud) decibel is impossible without some assistance. But taking the party up to 11 doesn’t have to mean sacrificing your battery life – if you get a Koostik Mini Koo. A solid block of either walnut or cherry is specially carved to create a trumpet horn style speaker that will amplify the iPhone’s native volume to levels we thought weren’t possible. Best of all, it only consumes a tiny amount of desk space and can also be used—in an emergency—as a paperweight. Now that’s good looking versatility.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
