10 Essentials For Staying In This Weekend

Published By

Another week has gone by. How? When did it happen? All we know is, spring is here and we’re getting ready for warmer weather.

Until that sunshine comes out in full force, though, we’ll be staying inside and keeping cozy. And to avoid the chance of cabin fever, we’ve been mixing up our usual routines with a few of the following items. From the comfiest t-shirt you’ve ever worn, to a larger-than-life story about a British college kid turned bank robber, to a barrel-proof sipping bourbon, we’re sure there’s something here that will spark your interest.

Proof 72-Hour Merino Tee

Proof 72-Hour Merino Tee

Three full days in a single t-shirt? You betcha. Proof’s luxurious merino wool t-shirt is a finely crafted garment that’s designed to stand up to a lot of wear and tear, all without getting stretched out of shape (or smelly). A little bit of nylon reinforcement on the natural fibers means its machine washable, too, and won’t shrink or lose its shape if you dry it on low. 

The Unusual Suspect: The Rise and Fall of a Modern-Day Outlaw

The Unusual Suspect: The Rise and Fall of a Modern-Day Outlaw

A modern day Robin Hood story, The Unusual Suspect chronicles the adventures of a British college student turned bank robber. Prompted by the massive economic inequality brought on by the 2007/2008 global recession, Stephen Jackley quit his studies and went on a six-month bank robbing spree — most of which he gave away to the homeless and needy. 

Warby Parker Winston Reading Glasses

Warby Parker Winston Reading Glasses

Vintage style plus modern technology put Warby Parker’s Winston glasses in a league of their own. They look right out of the ’60s, but the hand-polished polymers they’re made out of are ultra durable. Wear them while you’re reading, and you’ll put off seriously professorial vibes.

Vuori Ponto Shorts

Vuori Ponto Shorts

Lounge in style with Vuori’s Ponto shorts — a ridiculously soft and lightweight pair of lounge shorts with the most comfortable brushed elastic waistband you can imagine. The 7.5-inch inseam means you won’t feel funny wearing them out of the house, either. And with reinforced zippered pockets, they won’t sag even while you’re carrying your wallet and phone.

Instant Pot Duo Crisp + Air Fryer

Instant Pot Duo Crisp + Air Fryer

Combining two of this year’s hottest appliances into one, Instant Pot’s air fryer crisper lets you enjoy fried food crisp without the extra calories. With 11 different cooking modes, you can make just about anything in one of these babies. Get everything together in the morning, set it to delay start, and you’ll have a freshly-cooked meal waiting for you whenever you want.

Booker’s Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Booker’s Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Lockdowns have given us plenty of time to think about our whiskey choices, and Booker’s still ends up right near the top of the list. It’s a barrel-proof sipping whiskey that comes in at a big 126 proof, offering lots of vanilla, smoke, chocolate, and spice notes. If that proof is a little too hot for you, pour your tot of whiskey into the next item on our list.

Corkcicle Whiskey Wedge

The ice you use in your drink will make the difference between a slowly developing flavor, or a washed out glass of cold whiskey-flavored water. Corkcicle’s whiskey wedge is way cool, too — with the included double rocks glass, you’ll get a beverage that’s absolutely Instagram-worthy.

XTRATUF The Homer

XTRATUF The Homer

XTRATUF’s slippers are damned near the most comfortable things you’ll ever put on your feet. What makes them really special, though, is they can easily pull double duty as house shoes and outdoor slippers. The water-resistant soft wool uppers are lined with a warm faux shearling, and the rubberized soles will keep you from slipping and sliding.

Sonos One Smart Speaker

Sonos One Smart Speaker

If you haven’t heard Sonos speakers, you might look at this and think it will have similar sound quality as any other smart home device. You’d be dead wrong, though, as Sonos’ smart speaker has an incredibly lush, room-filling sound that’s unheard of in smart home speakers. Just like Alexa or Google Home, though, it’s voice- and app-control enabled, giving you the best of both worlds.

Lineage Tobacco & Spice Candle

Lineage Tobacco & Spice Candle

It’s easy to forget that one of the biggest things we miss by not going outdoors much is all the smells. Revive that underused sense with this awesome scented candle. It has rich tobacco, dry and grassy vetiver, pungent black pepper, and aromatic sandalwood, and will make your house smell like an improved version of the great outdoors.
