For the Design Enthusiast:
Holy Moly, this new gadget is the most exciting thing ever for designers, DIY’rs, home renovators – the ColorReader is the Shazam of color matching, taking all of the guesswork out of getting the perfect paint color. We have all experienced the frustrations of paint color selection. Matching paint color by eye is subjective. Job quality is not. The Datacolor ColorReader matches paint color with 95% accuracy, all at the push of a button.
This cool little device pairs with an app to read the desired color from your favorite draperies, pillow, sweater, wallpaper, somebody else’s wall, you name it- in less than a second, delivering the closest match across all major paint collections such as Benjamin Moore, Sherwin WIlliams, even Farrow & Ball.
Bluetooth connected and ultra-portable, this device is available on Amazon for $99.
For the Trend-Aware Food Enthusiast:
Breville Smoking Gun
Have you noticed that smoke-infused cocktails and menu items are trending these days? The Smoking Gun, which resembles a creme broule torch with a small hose attachment, can infuse the smoke flavor of your choice into just about anything- like meats, cheese, dips, sauces, cocktails and more. Tiny little wood chips add mesquite, applewood, hickory or cherrywood essence to the food or drink of your choice in minutes. So far I have had great results adding a nice smoky essence to broiled salmon, chicken, sauces and cheeses. With the Breville Smoking Gun, where there’s smoke there’s flavor… making this a great gift for the experimental chef or mixologist.

Parmesan Storage Mill
If you are a Food52 fan, you might be familiar with this popular item that has sold out multiple times. Their Parmesan Storage Mill is no ordinary cheese grater. Save yourself some elbow grease (and finger cuts) with a few simple twists of this ingenious device that grates your hard cheeses into a perfect, fine shred. It’s easy: You fill the mill with a few pieces of cheese, and twist the top to grate out exactly how much you need. The grater also doubles as a storage container, too, meaning you can keep the whole thing in the fridge and just pull it out when you need it. Try it with some parmesan sprinkled fresh over a hot pasta—easy, breezy, worry-free.
