U.N.Luggage: Corkcicle Air in-bottle Wine Chiller
We love the elegant look of this Corkcicle Air in-bottle wine chiller that both cools and decants your wine. Store it in the freezer before use and the icicle-shaped device keeps your wine chilled. As you pour it aerates your wine which triggers oxidation and evaporation, leaving the peak flavours to shine. It’s the perfect gift for a wine lover in your life.
Wilder Goods: Leather Surface Trays
Wilder Goods makes beautiful, small-batch products in their studio on Mcdermott Avenue. We love these leather surface trays as a cute catch-all for keys, jewelry, and any other treasure that needs a home. They come in three different unique shapes and sizes so you’ll be sure to find one that fits just right.
