For The 50 Shades of Shades Collector
CRAP Eyewear just released new color-ways of its most popular style, The Tuff Patrol. The classic, vintage-y round wire frame sold out their OG colors quick (and will bring them back in the Spring), but are keeping us satisfied in the meantime with Tort N Green and Gunmetal Black and Smoke Grey Tuff Patrol Releases.

For the Mobile Moment-Capturer
It seems that everyone’s IG-game has stepped up recently, and pixelated, out-of-focus shots are no longer acceptable. Save that for snapchat, am I right?
For those who are particular about their pictures, but wanna forgo the bulkiness of a DSLR, the Moment Lens is an incredibly compact and efficient way to transform your basic phone camera to a highly functioning photography tool. With high contrast optics, a large lens diameter, and minimal distortion, this is the secret weapon that your foodie pal, wanderlust buddy, or fashionista friend will adore.
For The Chic Chick With A Taste For The Foreign Goods

Golden Road Brewing‘s Back Home Gingerbread Stouts are sold in holiday-themed 4-packs for $15 at the Pub and select local retailers. This made-in-LA stout has all the flavor of a piping hot gingerbread cookie in cool beer form and ranks in at a crowd-pleasing 86 on BeerAdvocate.

For The Smoker
LA’s Kelly Lamb newly introduced the “Nika” incense burner, a beautiful porcelain piece with white crackle glaze. It’s sized at 5.5” X 4” an is the perfect mood-setter for the incense-loving household.
This Australian-made, coffee-based skincare line is here to get your shit together. Frank Body features a natural line of products that target cellulite, stretch marks, psoriasis, eczema and other conditions with decidedly satisfying results. So what’s it in the boxxxxxxxx?!? Being a caf-fiend himself, Frank mainly utilizes cacao and coffee extracts with tons of beneficial properties (fighting radicals and aging, stimulating blood flow, etc.) and forgoes the parabens, PEGS, phthalates, in his products. Both strategy and outcome are effective, straightforward, and pretty frank (had to).
