5 Elit by Stolichnaya New Zealand Edition Following up on last year’s Himalayan Edition, Stoli turns its focus on New Zealand to create this 300-bottle series of premium vodka. The spirit is crafted using water filtered over hundreds of years through the pumice in the Mamaku Ranges, which is then distilled at Latvia’s historic Latvijas Balzams. Each bottle, handmade by French crystal studio Royale de Champagne, is wrapped in a leather cuff, galvanized in jewelry-grade palladium and boxed in a Kauri wood case. A portion of the profits will benefit Oceana’s efforts to clean and protect the world’s oceans. Suggested Retail Price: $3,000 Contact:

6 Troubadour Headphones Each pair of LSTN Troubadours is handmade using reclaimed beech, cherry or ebony wood recycled from the discarded scraps of flooring and furniture manufacturers. The headphones feature a nylon-wrapped cable, gold-plated plug, in-line microphone and adjustable metal headband. For every pair sold, LSTN helps restore hearing to a person in need through the Starkey Hearing Foundation. Suggested Retail Price: $150 Contact:
