Moleskine is getting to the point that it’s the ubiquitous notebook. The Scotch tape or Kleenex of the written word world. We’re fine with that, but we need constant visible reminders about the important things happening today because we can’t be bothered to take said ubiquitous notebook out of our pocket umpteen times a day. The point is this – even with event reminders on your smart phone of choice, you’ve forgotten an important date by lunch time because you dismissed it. It’s not your fault, but that won’t stop the significant other from holding it against you. The solution is to go low tech. The 2011 Moleskine Desk Calendar is just a giant Moleskine notebook with detachable pages labeled with the day and date. It’s got the same standard hard cover, but this one folds open to keep it upright. And there’s no dismiss button.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
