We dedicate an ample amount of time toward surfacing the latest menswear (this is GQ we’re talking about), but our hunt for all things new and notable occasionally takes us elsewhere into the realms of home goods, grooming, and tech. Leave it us to help you find the sickest drops out there, from tech advancements to limited-edition linkups. Here, all the new lifestyle gear worth keeping tabs on.

For the Smoothie Lover With a Small Space: Beast Mini Blender

For small apartment dwellers with a minimal square footage and an even leaner kitchen counter, Beast just unveiled a scaled-down version of its popular hourglass-shaped blender. The new mini-me is available in five pastel colors, and you can even upgrade to the Mini Plus system that packs in more drinking vessels so you can take your Erewhon-worthy smoothies on the road.

The Snow Day Pick: Snow Peak x New Balance

For the fifth time, Snow Peak and New Balance have partnered up for a pair of shoes you’ll be grabbing whenever the snow actually starts to stick to the ground. These grippy sneaker-boots, which will literally keep you on your toes, are also blessed with a cozy Primaloft lining to keep your dogs warm despite the chill outside.

For the Stylish Bespectacled Guy: Warby Parker Spring Collection

Winter may have just started, but the four-eyed whizzes at Warby Parker are already springing forward with a new collection anchored by streamlined wire silhouettes and punchy acetate styles. Prices still start at $95 for plastic frames and $145 for metal ones, with the new styles serving as a reminder of why Warby Parker is still one of the best places to buy prescription eyewear online.

Great noise-cancelling headphones don’t need to be expensive, at least according to JLab. The brand has staked its reputation on affordable tech that punches way above its price point, and its latest drop is a super-cheap pair of active noise-cancelling headphones called the Lux ANC. This over-the-ear model has a whopping 70-hour battery life (or 40 hours with ANC turned on) and a transparency mode for when you want to remain somewhat grounded in reality. One of its rarer features though is the Bluetooth multipoint functionality—something not even available on some high-end models—which allows you to stream sounds simultaneously from separate devices.

The Stanley Cup Competitor: Miir All Day Straw Cup

You’ve seen the all the hooplah over the Stanley cup, but Miir has just thrown down the gauntlet with its own mega tumbler, the All Day straw cup. It’s made of 90% recycled stainless steel, comes with its own reusable straw (obviously), can keep your bevvies chilled for hours, and you won’t even have to queue up overnight at Target to get one.

The Turntable That’s Gone Wireless: JBL Spinner Bluetooth Turntable

Spinner Bluetooth Turntable

JBL decided to switch things up from its regularly scheduled output of headphones and earbuds by dropping its first-ever turntable recently. This one connects with your speaker via Bluetooth so you don’t have to fuss around with a tangle of wires (though it usually nets better sound quality if you do go the wired route), which makes it an excellent companion to any of the brand’s vast catalogue of Bluetooth speakers and soundbars.
