Attention: Wilson Phillips fans. Singer Carnie Wilson’s Love Lites collaboration with Broken Top Brands features Lemon Cookie, Sea Salt Cream, Vanilla Almond and Sparkling Mimosa scents and are made to last up to 75 hours with dual wick burning. Therefore, it is easy to enjoy these sweet scent in your home long after the comparable sweet treats are gone.

My mission is to bring warmth and love into your home through the smells that hold those special memories for me. Won’t you enjoy a special moment with me?”
Despite being arguably Brazil’s biggest ever music export, when extreme metal legends Sepultura lost their original frontman and founder Max Cavalera — alongside brother and drummer Igor Cavalera — in 1996, after their hugely influential Roots album, many thought the band would not recover from his departure. However, in Cleveland, Ohio punk and hardcore scene veteran Derrick Green, Sepultura found a formidable, towering force that would lead the band with power and conviction through this new era of their career.
Sepulnation – The Studio Albums 1998 – 2009, as released through BMG in October 2021, celebrates the band’s second phase. This 5-album boxset, as set across 8 slabs of vinyl or 5 CDs, contains the albums Against, Nation, Roorback, Dante XXI and A-Lex, all of which are half-speed-cut, remastered and back on 180-gram vinyl for the first time in a decade and also as a collector’s CD box. The aforementioned Roorback album features the rare Revolusongs EP, which is available for the first time digitally.
Mabel’s Labels personalized labels are durable, water-proof and safe to use within a microwave, dishwasher and/or laundry machine. These customizable labels give everyday people peace of mind knowing that their gear is properly-labeled and easy to identify. You better believe that I have some “Paltrowitz” labels around the home here, which I plan on using for this year’s holiday cards and some general kitchen organization.
The initial idea for creating a new pasta shape came from Sporkful creator and host Dan Pashman, who podcast listeners follow for his passionate and idiosyncratic approach to food. With no professional training as a chef, Pashman created The Sporkful “for eaters, not for foodies,” a tagline that directly informs the podcast’s unpretentious take on food culture. Since launching over a decade ago as one of the first food podcasts, The Sporkful has received numerous accolades including a James Beard Award, Webby Award, and Saveur Award for Best Food Podcast, and continues to be one of the most popular food podcasts today. Notable guests over the years have included Rachel Maddow, David Chang, Samin Nosrat, Nigella Lawson, Alton Brown, Carla Hall, Rosie Perez, Jim Gaffigan, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Kwame Onwuachi and W. Kamau Bell.
Last March, The Sporkful aired its new five-episode “Mission: ImPASTABLE” series, which chronicles Pashman’s quest to invent a new pasta shape, actually get it made, and actually sell it. Through the series, Pashman takes listeners on a journey that includes a heated debate on pasta shapes with respected food experts Francis Lam (host of APM’s The Splendid Table) and Evan Kleiman (host of KCRW’s Good Food), a trip to The Pasta Lab at North Dakota State University — where there is a machine that measures the bite force required to eat different pastas — and a conversation with the elusive Giovanni Cannata, the only pasta die maker working in America today. Thus, via The Sporkful podcast and beloved American pasta maker Sfoglini, a new pasta shape has been invented. More recently the Cascatelli by Sporkful Gift Set was launched, which incudes an exclusive “Put Some Cascatelli In My Belly” kitchen towel, the Cascatelli Companion Recipe Booklet featuring 12 recipes from Pashman and family, and 4 boxes of Cascatelli by Sporkful.
A Dutch Masterpiece makes award-winning cheese that many call “a work of art.” On November 17, 2021, I had the pleasure of attending a Holiday Masterpiece Cheeseboard Building Class, as presented by A Dutch Masterpiece and led by Jen & Jamey Virtual Cooking Classes. This virtual class was a live, interactive and fun 1-hour event, as led by the aforementioned Jen and Jamey with emphasis on new and innovative ways to create a Holiday Masterpiece Cheeseboard. In turn, one can learn to savor the slightly-rich flavor or Vincent, the full-bodied flavor of Frans Hals, the delicate fruity flavor of Vermeer, and/or the sharp taste and delicious texture of Rembrandt, while also learning the art of crafting their very own Holiday Masterpiece Cheeseboard.
Ultimately, I came away very impressed with both the brand A Dutch Masterpiece’s cheese and the instruction of the Zoom-based session. Per its website, Jen & Jamey’s Virtual Cooking Classes are “on a mission to teach people that creating great cuisine can be fun.” I hope to experience both A Dutch Masterpiece and Jen & Jamey’s Virtual Cooking Classes both again in the near-future.

Detroit Vineyards is a full-production winery and tasting room, producing wines reflective of the terroir and microclimate of the state – focusing on Vinifera varietals like Blaufrankisch, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Marsanne, Merlot, Pinot Noir, and Riesling, along with French and American hybrid varietals that thrive in the region’s variable climate, like Traminette and Vignole. Detroit Vineyards’ wine is made only from Michigan-grown grapes, sourced from family farms and vineyards across the state. They work directly with growers in 3 of Michigan’s 5 American Viticultural Areas (AVA): in southwest Michigan, the Lake Michigan Shore AVA; and in northwest Michigan, the Leelanau Peninsula AVA and Old Mission Peninsula AVA.
Every wine that they sell is produced and bottled in their winery in Eastern Market, Detroit from grapes. Their winemaker spends much of harvest in a truck: checking in on vineyards and freighting fruit back to the winery. They use minimally-interventional winemaking practices with very few additions, minimal sulfur and a very judicious use of oak. Their Detroit Vineyards 2020 Sauvignon Blanc should definitely be on your list, and the vineyard now has a Wine Club Subscription option available.

The aforementioned Paul John Indian Single Malt Whisky hails from the sunny shores of Goa, India.

The U.S. portfolio includes Nirvana, Bold, Brillance, Edited, Mars Orbiter, Kanya, Mithuna, Select Casks and Rarities offerings, as well as an annual limited Christmas Edition.

After their iconic 1996 debut single “Wannabe” topped the charts in 37 countries, The Spice Girls’ debut album SPICE went on to sell more than 31 million copies worldwide, becoming the best-selling album of all time by a female group. The girls have gone on to sell more than 90 million records around the globe, releasing 3 studio albums and 11 singles and winning a host of awards including a BRIT Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music.
The SPICE 25 2CD set comes in an A5 hardback booklet, with a collection of iconic images plus brand new messages from the girls. The set also includes a set of 6 Spice Girls postcards, featuring photographs by Tim Roney, taken in Paris in September 1996. The album is now available in a number of other formats, including a Zoetrope picture disc and limited-edition colored vinyl and cassettes — containing the audio from the original album only — with each Girl having a specific color that corresponds across both vinyl and cassette editions. The full original album has also been recreated in Dolby Atmos/Apple Spatial Audio. Thus, you have an inexpensive yet ideal collector’s item for any Spice Girls fan, holiday season 2021 and beyond.
Forsake aims to create footwear that is prepared for both “the known and unknown, so your day is never limited by the gear on your feet.” Its Peak-to-Pavement philosophy combines all-weather protection, rugged construction and versatile styling, ultimately delivering footwear that is prepared for whatever adventures await outside your door. Yet my first exposure to the brand was at this year’s Gotham Gets In Gear event in New York City.
Since then, I have had the pleasure of trying out Forsake’s Banks Men’s Shoe. This one is ideal for both day hikes and laid-back city cruises. It keeps your your feet cool and protected, with a moisture-wicking mesh lining and breathable leather, suede and canvas upper in place. Its die-cut EVA midsole and nylon shank support your feet no matter the terrain, and the all-terrain lugged rubber sole stays grippy on slick sidewalks and rugged trails. Mine are in the Orange/Grey coloring scheme, and I cannot recommend these shoes enough.
The 30th Anniversary Expanded Edition of No More Tears was first released digitally, adding 12 bonus tracks to the classic album. One of these bonus tracks is a brand new mash-up, as remixed by Rob Kinelski (Billie Eilish), of both Ozzy’s original 1991 song “Hellraiser” and Motorhead’s 1992-released version of “Hellraiser.” The song was originally co-written by Ozzy, Lemmy Kilmister (Motorhead) and Ozzy’s guitarist Zakk Wylde, and fans have been doing their own mash-ups for years. 2 special editions — a 2LP black vinyl version and a special yellow and red 2LP vinyl version with a specially created booklet — were also released simultaneously, as exclusive to the Tower Records website.
In terms of the lasting impact of the No More Tears album, it was a quadruple-platinum-seller which yielded 4 Top 10 singles on the Billboard Rock Tracks chart, “Mama, I’m Coming Home” (#2), “Road To Nowhere” (#3), “Time After Time” (#6) and the title track (#10). In addition, the album’s “I Don’t Want To Change The World” earned Ozzy his first GRAMMY, per a live version of the track that was featured on his 1993 Live & Loud album. The GRAMMY-winning track was 1 of the album’s 4 songs co-written with the aforementioned Lemmy Kilmister, and the album was ranked at #22 on Loudwire’s “Top 90 Hard Rock + Metal Albums of the ’90s” with Ultimate Classic Rock including No More Tears on their list “Top 100 ’90s Rock Albums.”
Another excellent discovery of mine from this year’s Gotham Gets In Gear event in New York City was Speedland. The Speedland SL:PDX Trail Shoe — which carries a retail price of $375.00 — was made in collaboration with BOA. This ultra-premium trail running shoe wasdesigned for the most discerning athlete. The shoe’s upper features the PerformFit Wrap, as powered by the BOA Fit System, providing a dialed in, locked in, confident fit for a superior connection and stability on any terrain.
Reportedly, this is the first trail running shoe to feature Li2, BOA’s premium dial platform designed with multi-directional capabilities. In turn, runners can tighten and loosen to accommodate foot-swelling on longer runs and/or lock in on technical terrain. The SL:PDX also features a removable Carbitex DFX carbon fiber plate with asymmetrical and dynamic flex — stiff in one direction, flexible in the other — providing the perfect balance of responsiveness and energy return. A smart brand making smart products, to say the least.
And another fantastic new discovery for me via 2021’s Gotham Gets In Gear event in Manhattan is the Poler Outdoor Stuff brand. Whether you are cheering from the stands or the couch or playing pond hockey, NHL fans now have a new way to honor their favorite teams this season, thanks to Poler Stuff. The limited-edition co-branded Cozy Collection was helmed in collaboration with the National Hockey League to showcase fan pride, and its collection features plush and cozy wearables emblazoned with team insignias for the Boston Bruins, Detroit Red Wings, Montreal Canadians, New York Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers, Toronto Maple Leafs and Vancouver Canucks. It is now available exclusively at poler.com.
Meanwhile, the Poler Shaggy Napsack is ideal perfect for summer trips, couch surfing, music festivals, after snowboarding, surfing, and/or just about any other activity that brings your core temp down. Hike it up to your waist, cinch it, wear it like a coat around the campsite, and crawl back into your tent all without ever leaving your cozy, warm Napsack. As an added bonus, it is now made with a super soft shaggy inner lining made of comfy synthetic fur. Ultimately different from Poler’s Zonker Napsack, but just as quality-oriented.
CandaScent Labs is a beauty and wellness brand known to formulate botanically-powered candles, as made with organic essential oils and pure plant extracts. The brand uses cutting-edge science to formulate said candles, which are sophisticated in scent and made with ingredients for your well-being. The brand carefully develops these candles with clan ingredients, as free of any synthetics, to capture the unique olfactory fingerprints of plants and deliver their science-backed benefits.
Recently CandaScent Labs unveiled a “forest bathing candle” called Mojo, and it has received excellent reviews. Per the words of the brand itself: “Find your MOJO as you inhale the aromas of the forest. Full of phytoncides, antioxidants, antibacterials and antifungals, MOJO will get you feeling like you have reached the top of the mountain.” I highly-recommend this one for personal home usage beyond gift-giving.

As reportedly taken on tour by Billie Eilish, Telestrations is a fun family-oriented game. Simple to learn how to play, each player simultaneously sketches a word they are given. When the alloted time is up, the players must pass their sketch to the next person to guess. Each player writes their guess on the card and passes it on until the drawing returns to the original player. It does not matter how good your drawing skills are, just draw and let the fun begin.

Remember the “is the dress blue or white” controversy? The fact is, we all see colors differently. What hue do you think of when we say “apple?” Either way, Hues And Cues is a vibrant board game full of colorful communication, where players are challenged to make connections to colors with words. Using only 1 and 2-word cues, players try to get others to guess a specific hue from the 480 colors on the game board. The closer the guesses are to the target, the more points you earn. Since everyone imagines colors differently, connecting colors and clues has never been this much fun before. Now available for sale via Target, Barnes & Noble and The Op site for $24.99.

I had the pleasure of trying out the Cutluxe Bread Knife, a 10″ Serrated Edge Knife made with high carbon German steel. Featuring an ergonomic handle design, this Artisan Series offering includes a hand-sharpened edge at 14-16 degrees per side for maximum sharpness and edge retention, ensuring precision slicing and minimal crumb dispersion when cutting bread.

Inspired by the emerging revolution billed as “self-care is health care,” Earth’s Kiss products prioritize regeneration, rejuvenation and self-healing from within. These masks — which I have had the pleasure of trying — are 100 percent vegan, eco-ethical and cruelty-free. The rare time I will get excited about mud.

In late 1990s, few television shows were more successful here in the States than Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?. The show ultimately transitioned from a top-ranked primetime series to a daytime television staple, producing more episodes than almost any show you can think of.
Thanks to Ginger Fox, you can now put yourself in the hot seat of one of the nation’s favorite quiz shows and take on the iconic money ladder via its newly-produced board game edition.

Suitable for 3 or more players aged 14+, the average game is slotted to take between 30 and 45 minutes. Players seeking a more compact game with fewer cards can also find that edition on Amazon.
Maniac Cop 2 & 3 Deluxe Editions
In Maniac Cop 2, “Maniac Cop” is back from the dead and stalking the streets of New York once more. Officer Matt Cordell was once a hero, but after being framed by corrupt superiors and brutally assaulted in prison, he sets out on a macabre mission of vengeance, teaming up with a vicious serial killer to track down those that wronged him and make them pay — insert dramatic pause — with their lives. The film stars Robert Davi, Claudia Christian, Michael Lerner, Laurene Landon, Leo Rossi, Robert Z’Dar, Charles Napier, and Bruce Campbell. Blue Underground’s stunning restoration of the film was scanned in 4K from the original camera negative, as supervised by Director of Photography James Lemmo, and this deluxe edition includes audio commentary and a plethora of other bonus features.
And fortunately, Maniac Cop 3: Badge Of Silence is also now on the market in deluxe form. It includes returning stars Robert Davi and Robert Z’Dar, plus Paul Gleason, Jackie Earle Haley, Julius Harris, Doug Savant and Robert Forster. Like Maniac Cop 2, this one was scanned in 4K from the original uncensored negative. It is presented with Dolby Vision HDR and a new Dolby Atmos audio mix for this definitive presentation.

Last but not least… And as also discovered via this year’s Gotham Gets In Gear event in New York City… BOGS makes boots for kids, women and men alike, aiming to provide comfort and protection from rain, snow, and anything else mother nature may throw at them. Smart, functional and durable yet also fashionable.
Post-event, I had the pleasure of checking out BOGS’ Classic Casual Chukka men’s boots. These Classic Casual Chukka boots are made with 100 percent waterproof gold-certified leather, Rebound Cushioning for all-day comfort, DuraFresh natural bio-tech for odor control, and BLOOM algae-based footbeds that help clean polluted water habitats.
