A Gift a Day: A Power Bank for the Multitasker Who's Always at One Bar of Battery Life

Scads of people are going to get a new phone, tablet, or other impressively marketed mobile device as a holiday gift this year. What they likely won't get is a way to charge said device while they're on the go. So as an addendum to the gadgets and gizmos we're giving this year, we're also including one of Radio Shack's impressive portable power packs. Our favorite is a slim all-black variant that will give an iPhone about 13 hours of talking time once it's dead, and even turns off automatically once whatever it charging is back to full capacity.

Here's the Classy Way to Get Drunk While Traveling for the Holidays

Jimmy Kimmel Celebrates the Holidays by Laughing at Crying Children

Jimmy Kimmel sure does love screaming kids. In the grand tradition of such pranks as parents telling offspring they ate all their Halloween candy (and filming the resulting devastation), last night's "Santa's Lap or Flu Shot?" segment turned photos of terrified tykes into a jolly old holiday-themed guessing game. Oh, what fun it is to laugh at other people's unhappy children! (Hey, it's better than laughing at your own.) see more

If You Have a Beard, You Need to Be Using Beard Oil

Just because you're growing a beard doesn't mean your look is no-maintenance. Besides a good trimmer—or regular trips to the barber—you should invest in a nourishing beard oil to soften the hair, add shine, and hydrate the skin beneath to avoid itchiness and flakes. In a flooded market, the oft-bearded Tom Ford now has his own collection of oils in three signature scents (piney Neroli Portofino, sweet Tobacco Vanille, and musky Oud Wood), further proof that facial hair has gone from hipster to high-end. $50; see more

Embrace Your Inner Slob and Still Look Respectable

Yesterday, the Internet imploded when it saw that Duchess Kate Middleton of Cambridge wore a—wait for it—hoodie outside her grand palatial estate. How gauche, no? You, however, are not royalty, which means you can wear a hoodie—sweats, even!—but that doesn't mean you're allowed to look like some damn slob. Luckily for you (and the princess, if she plans on continuing her laid-back fashion streak), California-based brand John Elliott + Co has released a limited-edition capsule called the Loopwheel Collection, a six-piece assemblage of the brand's signature styles made from an exclusive type of Japanese loopwheel fleece. Elliott sourced the material see more

A Gift a Day: Speed Away From Your Troubles on a Matte-Black Vespa

Common sense tells us that in winter, we should be inside, protected from the chill by layers of brick—or, at the very least, a metal car door. But there's still something unmistakably romantic about being on the open road and a little exposed to the elements, which is why we're so taken with the matte-black 2014 Vespa S 50 Sport SE 4v. Design-wise, the $2,500 scooter makes nods to the Vespa 50 Special from the seventies, but in most regards (including the paint job), it's a modern way to get around town. It's hard not to love an updated classic, see more

How to Turn Your Next Ski Trip Into a Workout

There's no trip like a ski trip for packing in equal parts exercise, relaxation time, and sightseeing. The way we see it, athletes require two things of their ideal ski destinations: muscle-challenging ski runs and access to top-notch fitness facilities. Meg Austin, a ski expert who lives and works in Vail, Colorado, shares her favorite resorts for those who won't take double-black diamonds without NFL-level hotel gyms. see more
