If you're anything like us, picking a planner is a painstaking process. Your datebook must fulfill a number of important criteria—size, page layout, design—and, above all, it's just got to feel right (you don't want to be sharing the next 365 days of your life with any old notebook). If you're still searching for the chosen one, we think you might like the latest from Little Otsu and illustrator Dan Black. It's dateless, so you can jump in whenever you want, has both weekly and monthly grids, and offers loads of list space for all your to-dos.
Contributing Blogger Tiffany Chu: If your second home is the library and your first home the studio desk, there's probably an academic cornucopia of design supplies that you've been yearning for all semester.

We here at Dwell wish everyone the jolliest, merriest, eatingest, happiest Christmas ever. Much love, friends.
(Gnoel is an Egg Press classic. If you're not familiar with their work, ch-ch-check it out...)
These handsome and slender stirring spoons are handcrafted in Thailand from what would ordinarily be waste wood. We love that the six-inch handle makes it easy to reach into deep jars or extra-tall glasses.
Oftentimes, a cardboard box of baking soda in the refrigerator just doesn’t seem to be doing enough to eliminate smells. Cue in this neat little guy. The Kuro Cube is a combination of oak and organically produced powdered white charcoal, both crafted in Korea. It efficiently gets rid of pesky odors that linger in your fridge, but can also be used as a purifier for other closed-off spaces, such as closets and drawers. And it gets better—Kuro can be used as a fertilizer once its first life is through.
We love this 100-percent wool toy for pets, which is fair-trade crafted in Nepal.
How exactly does the Golden State taste? Let your toddler test it out with this sanded Maple teether toy in the shape of the California. A tree is planted with every purchase, making it a nice little treat for your baby and the environment.
