It might be freezing outside – which means summer can’t come soon enough. Luckily we have A Summer Shop
to look forward to. The website right now is under ‘winter’ mode – but regardless, it’s still filled with fun and entertaining products.

They’ve got it all: a canvas backgammon set, a japanese selvedge chambray game-bag, beard oil. Lot’s of beard oil.

Everything you’ll find on this website is ‘made and played’ in the good ol’ USA, and each product purchase supports growth of localized domestic manufacturing with over 100 years experience.

A Winter Shop and A Summer Shop try to curate products that reflect seasonal lifestyles while displaying original product development. Many of these products also reflect the website creator Nicco Graham’s point of view and personal experiences from working by the pool as a lifeguard during warm summers, and in ski shops during the snowier months.

The products are quirky, creative and curious. There is a unique factor to many of the items available that make A Summer Shop the perfect destination if you’re looking for a gift for the guy (or girl) who has seen it all.

Some of our favorite products?

From ‘The Beard Shop’ – Beard Oil: Sawdust – pine, cedar and sandalwood will leave that beard of your smelling like the floor at Peter Lugers.

From ‘The Winter Shop’ – The Japanese selvedge chambray game-bag. Because if you’re gonna have a chambray game-bag, it BETTER be selvedge, ya know? Two games in one – the bag doubles as a game board for double sided backgammon AND checkers. Come one – that’s pretty brilliant.

So check out all of the great products at A Summer Shop’s official website and get ready for some fun in the sun – and pray this cold front ends soon.

Man choosing clothes at his walk-in closet

Like personal finance or basic kitchen skills, organizing your closet isn’t something that gets taught anymore. Now is the perfect time to refresh your drawers and cabinets for a fresh new season. If you’re like most guys, your parents (i.e., your mom) did this for you while you were growing up, sneaking into your bedroom while you were out to collect your sh** from off the floor and put it back into your closet and drawers where it belonged.

Focusing on something you can control — the clutter in your closet — is a rare treat. Organizing your closet is an undeniably good use of free time, and it will make it easier to find items you're looking for.

From Long Shot to Pineapple Express, these are the best Seth Rogen films to stream
Seth Rogen

While you probably know him best for being one of the most popular stoners in pop culture, Seth Rogen has become one of the biggest actors/producers in Hollywood. Not surprisingly, a lot of the movies he's helped get made, whether he starred in them or not, are chock-full of humor that is perfect for both stoners and anyone who just likes to laugh. Rogen's cultural impact has been huge, and it comes from relatively humble Canadian beginnings.
Movies with Seth Rogen have tended to do well, even if there are a few more forgettable titles mixed in as well. And whenever he's done something a bit more dramatic, he's pulled that off as well. Wherever you try to slot Rogen, he usually fits, which is why this list of the best Seth Rogen movies is pretty diverse. Don't get us wrong, there is plenty of comedy here, too. Rogen's made plenty of great ones, and some of them made the cut for this list.
