[7] Bowers & Wilkins PX

Sure Grado is the best but Bowers & Wilkins wins every time on design and their PX wireless noise-canceling headphones in soft gold are as they kids would say, sexy AF (for big ass headphones, that is). They will cost you $399 (which is still less than Grado) but they do have a 22-hour battery life and intuitive controls that respond naturally to your behavior (whatever that means).

You can find them starting for around $30 on Amazon. Who doesn’t enjoy the ukulele? They just put a smile on your face when you hear them. Do yourself a favor in 2018 and learn how to play “Somewhere over the Rainbow” and impress your friends around a camp fire or make some extra dough playing it on the street.


[11] Pocket Constitution

With more and more people confused as to what is in our U.S. Constitution we are thinking it’s time everyone has one handy. Also when reading you might find a certain some one, living in a certain house that is white might be violating it.  #justsayin
