Stay Handsome

Blind Barber is a lifestyle brand that encompasses barbershops, grooming products, lounges, and restaurants with locations in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Through their motto, “Stay Handsome,” the super-trendy company’s goal is to provide outstanding products and services that allow customers to look and feel their best.

Smart Chargers

Getting your charging cords and wall plugs organized when traveling can be a task in itself. So why not ditch the three wall plugs in exchange for a BoostCube Smart Charger. Whether you’re looking for a wall plug with five USB ports or the latest in Type-C charging, iClever’s line of BoostCube Smart Chargers is sure to fulfill your needs. Featuring a convenient folding wall plug for easy storage while traveling, the BoostCube smart chargers are equipped with SmartID ports for device recognition, which allows for optimal charging efficiency and device protection with safe charging while you’re on the road. $22.99. www.iclever.com

23 and Me

Seeing the apartment in Naples where your family once lived, strolling around the same square in London that your great grandfather once walked, or visiting Israel on a Birth Right trip to connect to your ancestors, may all be major factors in where you choose to travel. Many of us, though, do not know exactly what nationalities make us, well, us. Thanks to 23 and Me a simple saliva sample can change all that. When the DNA kit arrives, simply provide a sample and send it back to 23 and Me. In a few short weeks, by comparing your DNA to others from around the globe, you’ll get a breakdown of your ethnicity by region or country. $99. www.23andme.com

Smoke-less Grill

Perfect for the chef in your life, the Philips Smoke-Less Grill offers unbeatable taste and low-fat benefits of grilling safely indoors year-round with minimal smoke and splattering.
