Mt. Hood Pint Glass Is Classy, Because Oregon


Look, if no one had told us that this pint glass has a perfect replica of Oregon’s highest peak, Mt. Hood, molded in its base, we probably would have never noticed. But now that we have, we think it’s kind of neat. Made by North Drinkware in Portland, Oregon (where else?), this pint is an American-made, custom blown 16 oz. glass.

Using United States Geological Survey (USGS) data (depicting ridges, canyons, and peak) a 3D model of Mt. Hood is integrated into the mold so your beer cascades around the mountain when you pour it into the glass. The Oregon Pint delivers a connection to the mountains that surround us, and the satisfying experience of drinking a local crafted beer out of a local crafted glass – all made here in Oregon.

We suppose this will be particularly popular to Oregonians, though it has a certain artistic appeal beyond that state’s borders. We can’t imagine that it’s all Portlanders who ordered $160,000 worth of glasses (as of this writing), at $35 a pop. It’s on Kickstarter with the funding goal well in the rearview mirror, so head on over and pre-order your own if that’s your thing.

Floating Ripple Vase


A little whimsical, marginally useful yet definitely eye catching, the Floating Ripple Vase will accept one flower. You can then set that flower afloat in any container, giving the impression that it made a ripple, a ripple which then froze in time. Or something. We came in last at the Prose Competition, which is a made-up contest. We made it up in an effort to emphasize how much we can suck at writing sometimes. But hey, you’re not here for the prose, you’re here for the goods. This one will set you back $22, although it’s sold out right now.

Glow In The Dark Starry Bed Sheet Will Delight The Kids, Maybe


Do kids these days even care about anything that isn’t on TV or their smartphone? Like, will they even like a set of bed sheets that looks normal in the daylight, but will glow with planets and stars in the dark? We sure hope so, because we sure would have thought it was the bee’s knees back in our day and we can’t be that old. If you think there’s still hope for your little ones, you can get your own set for about $90.

C’UP Is A Coffee Cup For The Undecideds


Feeling like a strong dark shot of espresso? Or a nice long Americano? Whichever it is, there’s no need to have two separate cups to hold your drinks, when you can have just one. The C’UP combines the two in one package, though we can’t exactly say it’s the most beautifully designed cup on the planet. As a matter of fact, you’d think they’d charge next to nothing to make up for the sub-par design, but what’s happened is rather the opposite: it’s an outrageous 40€ (or about $53) for just one. A set of six will set you back 220€ (or about $288). But hey, fools and their money are easily parted.
