Good Looking Glass
Roberto Conterno’s perfectionism extends to his Sensory glassware, designed with his son Gabriele, an engineer. Executed by Schott-Zwiesel, these stems will showcase every nuance of your next bottle, even if it’s not Monfortino. —Susannah Smith
$175/set of 2 at rarewineco.com

Piecework
If you, as I, worked your way through all your puzzles twice+ over lockdown, you’ll delight in this beautifully illustrated homage to wines of the Boot from Chambave to Bari. 1000 high-quality pieces join in a 19”x27” puzzle. —Susannah Smith
$49 at waterandwines.com

Headed Camping?
Ditch the hip flask and pack this sleek set holding your (pre-chilled) wine or cocktail under vacuum seal, with tumblers magnetically attached. In my test, after 8 hours, it only warmed by 10°F. In four colors; also in 375 ml. —Corey Warren
$125/750ml highcampflasks.com

Pressed for Success
Made from Le Moulin Cornille’s mature Provençal fruit, aged in special lofts before pressing, this is a unique finishing oil: rich, buttery, with dark-fruited olive and cocoa flavors, a lustrous texture and astonishing depth. —Patrick J. Comiskey
$49/1L at kermitlynch.com

Jarringly Fresh
If your friends are craving August tomatoes this winter, give them the next-best thing: passata made right in the field. Mutti, in Parma, has built on-site “instafactories” to maximally preserve that sun-ripened taste. —Joshua Greene
$6.99/19oz. at cortibrothers.com

For Your Edyfication
Stock your cupboards from A to Z (Aleppo Pepper, Za’atar) with the Middle Eastern Pantry Box from Edy’s Grocer in Brooklyn. The pretty holiday box is packed with spices, couscous, tahini, harissa and a bottle of rose water. —Nick Mrozowski
$75 at edysgrocer.com

Wet Bar
This bamboo bath caddy expands up to 37 inches, with a middle slat that rotates up to prop a book or tablet, as well as a phone holder, a loofah hook, and a slot to secure your wineglass—everything needed for a relaxing night in. —Alissa Bica
$60 at umbra.com
