What's New, What's Hot: December 2020


Lighthouse 600 Lantern: Just the thing for soft adventure, camping and RV vacations, this powerful lantern from Goal Zero not only provides multi-directional and adjustable light of up to 600 lumens, which is quite a lot, it also functions as a charging hub that itself has three convenient ways to be charged: from any USB source, the sun, and, in a power emergency, by hand cranking. One minute of cranking equals 10 minutes of light on low. The lantern, which is energized by a 5200 mAH lithium battery, can provide illumination of up to 320 hours on low to 2.5 hours on full. The Lighthouse 600 easily stores, hangs (from a built-in handle) or stands (on collapsible legs). $69.95; www.goalzero.com

Cornet Barcelona Sagrada Glass Art Pieces: The Sagrada Familia Basilica in Barcelona is one of the world's most acclaimed tourist sites, but if you can't travel there for now at least you can experience a bit of its wonder right here at home by acquiring hand-made glass art pieces inspired by this landmark. Each of these hand-painted art pieces, mouth-blown by artisans, attempts to recreate the brilliant colors and patterns inspired by the basilica's brilliant stained-glass windows. Among the one-of-a-kind glass objects are unique wine and whiskey decanters; water pitchers; brandy snifters; stemless and tall wine glasses; drinking glasses; and shot glasses. The museum-quality glasses ship in a silk-lined gift box that at once protects the products and enhances their beauty. Wine glasses start at $24; www.cornetbarcelona.com

Peak Design Everyday 20L Tote: A unique and eminently useful feature of this tote is that it comes with dual-sided access with weather-proof zips that enable you to access the bag's contents without having to remove it from your shoulders.

A canvass shell protects against the elements, while storable shoulder straps make it easy to carry by hand.
