We’re paralyzed with indecision. How can we possibly select which jam this Swann Wireless MP3 Doorbell System will blast whenever we get a visitor? It’s like having a ringtone for the whole darned house. But do we go Pachelbel-classy or Taio-Cruz-funky? What about greeting our nerd buddies with a snippet of Mr. Roboto? Luckily for us, this handy device stores up to twenty-five songs, making it a breeze for us to swap them. Available at bestbuy.com for only $50
When you stamp your passport to enter a new country, anything could happen. You could have a great time, learn a lot, and see the sights, or you could drink the water and spend the rest of your vacation in your hotel bathroom cursing all the gods you can name.
Don’t do that. Get an NDūR Advanced Portable Filtration Water Bottle and drink just about any water safely. Yes, you can fill your water bottle from that stream you found while hiking. You can fill it up at the sketchy water fountain that looks a bit rusty. You can even drink Mexican tap water without fear of Montezuma’s Revenge.
Available at ThinkGeek from $29.99 – $39.99

We admit we spent much of March refreshing Saturday.com in hopes that we’d be the first to shop Kate Spade’s new, slightly more budget-friendly line. Now that the site is open (and we’ve picked out everything we wanted), we direct you towards The Skinny Jean in Splatter Paint . Sure, jeans aren’t where our minds immediately go when we think Kate Spade, but these fun pants feature a quirky pattern that’s totally in line with her aesthetic, but a little more relaxed – just like Saturday should be! Available at saturday.com for only $120
When you’re short on acreage for a garden, grow one on your walls, deck rail, or fence.

(Hanging a few potted prickly cacti around your perimeter may discourage intruders, too!) Available at 2modern for only $72
