Ain’t life grand?

Why: You’ve got plenty of material.

MV’s Best Peanuts
What: We can’t stop munching on these delicious Virginia-made treats. There’re regular salted and unsalted tins but also Cajun, jalapeno, butter toasted, and chocolate.
Why: It’s time to get nutty, buddy.
Where: Online at mvsbest.com.
What: Super-comfy tees and hoodies are made from old cotton scraps and discarded bottles (plastic and glass). And, don’t worry; they won’t cut you.
Why: It’s an endless recycle.
Where: Online at playbackclothing.com.
What: Silk pillowcases that purport to be the same pH level as your skin, so moisture doesn’t escape from your face and hair during the night. (They’re said to be especially great for people with eczema.)
Why: Soak it all in.

Declaration of Dependence
What: Norwegian duo Kings of Convenience’s latest album is melodic, cheerful, and relaxing. (There’s no percussion on the whole thing.)
Why: It’ll give you good dreams.
Where: Online at amazon.com.
