The kottke.org holiday gift guide

This flexible ice cube tray that make large ice cubes is literally (literally!) the best thing you can give anyone (anyone!) this holiday season:

Big Ice Cube Tray

First of all, it's $10. Your homemade Old Fashioneds and Whiskey Sours will stay delightfully undiluted with large ice cubes. Your kids will say, "Holy shizzle, look at the size of those fracking ice cubes! Swaggy fresh! {emoji drinking glass} {emoji smiley} {emoji thumbs up}" The Instagramming of your at-home cocktails will get 20% more faving action. The tray is cheaper and probably easier to use than these spherical ice molds (which, admittedly, I had never seen before and do look pretty cool and I think I might have to get them yup just pushed the Add to Cart button so I will let you know how it goes). Your friends will gape in wonder at your seemingly fancy-cocktail-bar-grade at-home cubes and ask you where you got such a wonderful contraption and you can tell them, hey lady I don't ask you about your secrets just drink your drink.

I mean, it's no Canon EOS 5D Mark III 22.3 MP Full Frame CMOS Digital SLR Camera with EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens or IGI Certified 18k White or Yellow Gold Comfort Fit Round-Cut Diamond Solitaire Engagement Ring (1.25 cttw, H-I Color, SI1-SI2 Clarity), but what is these days really?
