Whistle while you help.

Falling Whistles + Dannij
What: One of our favorite nonprofits (which aids war-affected women and children in the Democratic Republic of the Congo) has enlisted NY-based jeweler Dannijo to add some handmade flair ($148-$498) to its classic design.
Why: Brass fringe, lures, silver charms, and crystal chains will certainly whet your whistle.

Sous Style
Home decorating tips, recipes, lifestyle advice, and other wonderful eccentricities from Elle photo director Pippa Lord and a rotating lineup of chefs, stylists, artists, and more.
Why: Male Mondays, a skirt steak with Bloody Mary tomato salad recipe, bathroom inspiration, and many other ways to make your place a palace.

Schott’s Quintessential Miscellany
A collection ($10) of everything you never knew you needed to know, from beauty spot nomenclature to the difference between Twitter and telegraphy.
Why: Forget the Jersey Shore cast, Kim Kardashian, and their ilk by getting highbrow with your useless information.

Don’t come from the land Down Under? No worries, mate. Get all the best men’s and women’s fashions, accessories, and swimwear from Aussie designers on one site.
Why: Ksubi chiffon leggings ($160), a KJ Kirrily Johnston bra ($98), and the Banjo & Matilda Anywhere cashmere scarf ($300).

Laqa & Co. Nail Polish Pen

What: Throw the handy guy ($15) in your bag for quick applications and touch-ups on the go. Note the packaging, designed by a revolving cast of young designers.
