Veg out.

Dirt Candy
What: Acclaimed New York chef Amanda Cohen whips her off-the-wall, all-vegetarian techniques into a tome that’s equal parts recipe book and graphic novel.
Why: MacGyver references, zany cartoon renderings, and “how to make it vegan” asides leave nothing off the table.
Where: Available at amazon.com, $13.

Stella by Stella McCartney
The eco-loving Brit designer expands her lingerie spread to include lower-priced (but no less lovely) everyday underthings.
Why: Shop tulle-trimmed bikini briefs, strapless bras (sized through E cup), and more.
Where: Available at net-a-porter.com, from $26.

Renouve Hand Serums

What: Beautifully packaged (and scented) antibacterial potions are better suited to your vanity than a nurse’s office.
Why: Bitter orange peel extract and a range of fragrances lift spirits in more ways than one.
Where: Available at renouve.com, $29.

Neighborwoods Maps

What: Graphic designer and crafty woodworker Aymie Spitzer etches fragrant cedar slabs into hometown homages you’ll want to hang everywhere.
Why: Choose from current designs (Philly, Brooklyn, and others) or preorder a dozen-plus more from soon-to-come collections.
Where: Available at neighborwoodmaps.com, $48-$64.

Sunbiotics Almonds

What: Single-serving bags are packed with snacks that taste good but are also healthy.
Why: Go nuts with batches sprinkled with truffle sea salt, cocoa powder and coconut sugar, and a slew of probiotics.
