Baby’s black balloon might make her fly, but yours will make you soar…musically. Each 5.5cm diameter foam balloon encases a loudspeaker so you can have tiny, loud tunes wherever you go. At first, a tiny foam balloon – even a jet black one – might seem effeminate, but when she eventually steals it you can just call it an early birthday present. Besides, when has having one more ball to play with ever been a bad thing?


Vaer has been one of our favorite watchmakers for as long as we can remember because they produce new, classic watches based on iconic designs. Case in point, the Vaer G5 Meridian watch you see here. This timepiece is a 1950s-inspired 20ATM automatic watch that’s USA-assembled, dual timezone, built with ocean-ready functionality, self-winding and the brand’s first true GMT (the latest version of their core dive watch design). What’s more, it pays homage to other watches that are incredibly more expensive or hard to come by whilst also adding new aspects that makes this Vaer G5 Meridian watch more desirable than the other options in our opinion.
