The Amos staff chooses their ten most wanted items for October, 2017. (Yes, most links lead to Amazon because we are — full disclosure—an Amazon affiliate.) That being said, all items have been curated and chosen by writers and staff of Amos and are genuinely objects we love. If you love them, too, fantastic. We hope you do.
(1) Heat-sensitive magical Marauder’s Map coffee mug. Mischief managed. (2) Renaissance-inspired necklace approved by and based on one in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, U.K. (3) Plush dinosaur backpack. They say it’s for toddlers. But it has adjustable straps and just might fit an adult’s belongings, too. Just saying. (4) All-purpose canvas drop cloth. Need drapes? Tablecloth? Bedspread? Dust ruffle? Drop cloth? This checks every box. Incredibly versatile, sturdy, and soft (once you wash it). (5) IKEA Tejn faux fur sheepskin rug. For the floor or to toss on a piece of furniture. Want something larger, fancier, more expensive? Check out this flokati rectangular rug. (6) Classic Victorinox Swiss Army watch. Don’t like the icky build-up of a leather strap? The way metal links pull manly men’s sensitive arm-hairs? This one sidesteps that problem with its more practical strap. (7) Sharpie liquid highlighters. The world’s best highlighters. Seriously. (8) Unisex classic low-top Converse Chuck Taylors. In navy. (9) Blue-Q socks proclaiming the one universal truth: I Could Use a Sandwich. Couldn’t we all, socks, couldn’t we all? (10) Lever-back converter earrings: because sometimes you feel like a stud; sometimes you don’t. These turn any post earring into a subtle drop. Just like magic. Plus, the set includes a silver and gold tone version, so you’re never mismatched, you elegant creature, you.
