Industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa translated the Japanese tradition of Hanko—individual stamps used in place of a personal signature—into these plastic and steel pens. Super simple and super useful, they allow you to leave your super normal mark on any piece of paper you encounter. The Shop at Cooper-Hewitt is offering the red ballpoint with three different hanko: heart, asterisk, and pointing finger (pictured).
Transparent mouthblown glass brings this pendant light's bulb into clear view, allowing it to illuminate a room without any obstruction.
This beautiful glass piece looks a bit like a unique carafe, but is, in fact, a dropper designed for doling out soy sauce. Simply cover the little hole at the top of the bulb with your fingertip for easy dripping (and it will actually work with pretty much any thin-ish liquid). Available at Rare Device, a San Francisco shop that's a super spot for holiday (or everyday) shopping.
Whether you're braving the darkened wilderness on a camping expedition or want to keep a little bedside light handy in case of a nighttime blackout, having a reliable flashlight (or Torch) around is always a good idea. This beech wood model by Jonas Damon features an LED bulb, which makes for a longer lasting, more directed beam.
