Parker Tote

Our Editor in Chief swears by The Parker Tote. The polished, black and gold tote transforms into a fully padded backpack with two hideaway straps. The roomy interior organizer section easily holds a 15.6″ laptop, a notebook, and a full complement of daily necessities, and has a back panel that slides over luggage handles. So whether you’re going to work, traveling, or just exploring the city for a day, this tote/backpack has you covered.

Villa One Tequila


Unlike other tequilas, Villa One sources 100% blue weber agave from both the Highland and Lowland regions of Jalisco, Mexico. This unique combination of agave flavors combines herbaceous, earthy Lowland notes with the sweeter, fruity notes of Highland agave, resulting in a distinct, rounded profile.

“Nick Jonas and I share a love for tequila and we wanted to do something really special and also really accessible. Our partner is Stoli, and the product is from an artisanal distillery in Tequila, Mexico that has one of Mexico’s most famous distillers. We are so proud of this collaboration.” –John Varvatos

Another favorite is Spottswoode Cabernet 2017. Great vineyard sites are rare, and part of defining them is their ability to ripen fruit that allows for a consistently extraordinary wine.  We fell in love with this delicious Spottswoode Cabernet, a must for the holiday season or anytime.
