We love small minimalist wallets. The ability to fit everything you need for a night out on the town in to a small package that fits comfortably in your front pocket can't be rated high enough. The Poquito Wood Wallet ($25) by Chris Haryono is a precision machined masterpiece that allows you to carry coins, cash or cards in a small convenient package. It's made from hand polished black walnut, white oak or black cherry (Stretch goal) and has a custom molded elastomer strap that holds everything in place.

The Dude And The Zen Master ($20), a New York Times bestseller comes courtesy of Oscar winning actor Jeff Bridges and Bernie Glassman, the renowned Zen leader and the author of Bearing Witness. Glassman compares the iconic role of Jeff Bridges in The Big Lebowski to Lamed-Vavnic, one of the pivotal men in Jewish mysticism. These dudes are "simple and unassuming and so good that, on account of them, God lets the world go on." His good buddy Jeff, however, sees it from a different perspective. He says that the great thing about the Dude is that he would rather "hug it out than slug it out." An extraordinary book.
The Vanhawks Valour Carbon Fiber Bicycle ($910) is the first connected carbon fiber bike. It all starts with the app that acts as the central hub. It allows you to enter your destination while the led lights on the bike give you turn by turn signals. Blindspot detection keeps you safe from nearby cars via vibrating handlebars that alert you when you're about to turn into traffic. The bike also tracks your speed, distance, calories, and time. Even when you're phone isn't with you, Valour tracks your information and syncs with your devices when you get home. And all of that is just the tech. The carbon fiber unibody frame weights in at just under 16 pounds. So there are no worries if you have an apartment on the fifth floor.
