Unless you plan on staying in one place for the rest of your life, you’re likely going to need a good suitcase.  And unless you want to use your grandpa’s old suitcase–the one adorned with tweed and smelling like an ashtray–you’ll probably want to get one of your own. Samsonite’s Pixelcube, which isn’t really a cube and definitely has nothing to do with pixels, is a great model that raises the bar for those long weekend getaways and business trips. Built out of polycarbonate and rolling on four quiet, multi-directional wheels, it’s a hell of a way to carry your stuff. It’ll be safe too: it has a mounted combination lock accessible only to you and the occasional nosy TSA agent. Comes with a 10 year warranty, which will last you till you’re old and creaky and actually do want to stay in the same place for the rest of your life.

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
