If you really want to spoil someone, Andersen & Anderson will keep them in comfort no matter how rough it gets at sea. Some things, like the classic turtleneck, should be bought to last. 100% Marino Wool.
The Intent Pant works in the office or the yoga studio and is incredibly comfortable. Lululemon packed the design with tasteful detail, including the ever-useful card slots in each pocked. It stretches like crazy, and has a nice modern taper. My favorite pants.
Designed in 1920’s Shanghai, Feiyue were made famous by the Shaolin Monks (think Kung Fu) for being durable, flexible, and cheap. They are about as comfortable as you can handle, but beware the French knock-offs which go for 10x the price. http://www.chinafeiyue.cn/
Sometimes caffeine is the solution. When it isn't but I want something creamy and rich, with a similar mouth-feel then rooibos espresso is a great alternative. Loaded with antioxidants, it works out perfectly in a french press, Aeropress®, or classic espresso machine.
Prismo is a clever AeroPress® add-on allows you to make espresso-style coffee. An 80 micron metal filter and pressure-actuated valve help kick up the pressure, the key to a good espresso. They’ve also included a silicone seal so you no longer need to flip your AeroPress®.
