The SHARP List: Our 2021 Gift Guide of Grooming Gadgets

We may have spent most of the last year at home, indoors, and in sweatpants, but something tells us we’re all in need of a little more self-care than ever. Personally, we’re wearing our pandemic wrinkles with pride but we’re also dutifully moisturizing, toning, and cleansing to ensure that we don’t acquire any new ones. We’re also trying to read, up our oral hygiene, meditate, and find our zen — and if that happens to be in a new wood burning hot tub, or by laying around in a silk robe, so be it.

A warm bath and a quiet retreat in the woods are two of the most effective ways to decompress — so what happens when you combine the two? Launched by Vancouver furniture designer Craig Pearce, this eco-conscious hot tub is built from recyclable aluminum and renewable cedar and oak. Rather than requiring an electrical or plumbing connection, it heats up in 90 minutes with the help of a submerged wood-burning stove. Let the deep relaxation commence. ($7,295)

Although incense was and is part of many ancient and religious rituals, it has become a mainstream approach to harnessing some zen. For anyone seeking a shortcut to calmness (and we don’t blame you for wanting to find a little extra right now), aromatherapy fragrances like hydrangea, sandalwood, and green tea are a powerful salve. ($70)
