We come across all sorts of great products in the SAVEUR office. Check out our favorites for April: tumblers to take you from night to day, a bottle opener you’ll want to wear around your neck, spring’s most essential cookbook, and more selected by associate digital editor Marian Bull.
How cool would it be to have a bottle opener that could also double as a necklace if you strung it onto a gold chain?! Bonus points if you use it to crack open a High Life.
Brass Bottle Opener, $60 at poketo.com
The Best Part of Waking Up is a Technicolor Boulder Mug

In the (Urban) Jungle
Some days I dream that my bedroom is like a jungle with lots of really cuckoo art on the walls. I think the first step to that first part is having lots of hanging planters, like this one, and not killing my succulents.

A Board Above the Rest
The biggest messes I make in the kitchen happen at the edges of crappy cutting boards; these are sturdy enough to feel like a work surface and big enough to contain my mise en place and my wreckage, too.
