In order to not water down your Balvenie, use these stones instead of ice cubes. Made from polished soapstone, just stick them in the freezer for a few hours for a chilled evening drink.

With most speakers these days, you’ve got two options: quality sound or lack of wires. The Fi70 thankfully has both, with wireless, concert-hall-level production from two eight-inch subwoofers, two five-inch drivers, and Neodymium tweeters. Bonus: It comes in three different types of wood.

Sure, you can dig a hole in the backyard and line it with rocks. Or you can buy this sleek fire pit. Built from A36 steel, it develops a unique patina over time and slides together more easily than anything from Ikea.  At less than three square feet, it’s also easy to move.
