Day Maker

Mornings suck. There’s no way to sugarcoat it. The first thing you hear are those soul-crushing beeps of your alarm clock. Just the sound of your alarm at any point during the rest of your day will send a shiver down your hunched over spine. The guys at HabitCo are trying to change that whole “Maybe I can just call out sick?” feeling with Day Maker. We have to admit, the alarm-meets-toaster design is a bit bizarre and quirky, but if it helps us get the day going, we’re down. Set the alarm on your iPhone in either the standard iPhone clock or Day Maker app and push it down like you would a piece of whole wheat. When it pops up, so will you (or snooze by pushing it back down like if you wanted some extra burnt toast). No word yet on how it cooks our bacon.

Finding a belt that fits exactly right when your weight fluctuates is impossible–unless you’re wearing a Mission Belt. Mission Belts use a unique ratchet buckle that adjusts every 1/4″, which means a comfortable, easy-to-adjust fit every time. Their full-grain Italian leather collection includes seven options, so there’s a good-looking, high-quality Mission Belt for every occasion. As if that wasn’t enough, $1 from every belt sold goes to their “Mission” of fighting poverty with micro loans through a partnership with Kiva. To date, they’ve loaned over $4.1 million in over 75 countries. Fits perfectly. Fights poverty.
