Boreal Wallets (Est. 2009) is a British company founded with the aim to take art out of the galleries by printing art on everyday items. Collaborating with an eclectic mix of artists and designers from all over the world, Boreal Wallet's wallet designs (or 'pocket art', as they put it) bring unique artworks into people's hands. A great and clever concept! Pictured is the 'Arctic Sister Wallet' by illustrator Duke&Boris.
We're a sucker for pretty much any product that has the word 'Magic' in its name (it just sounds so promising, you know?) and the 'Magic Coin Pouch' by paperwallet is no exception to this rule. This ingenious pouch (now raising funds on Kickstarter) is Paperwallet's answer to the problem that most slim wallets don't cover: coins. They re-imagined the way we handle coins by creating a wallet without zippers or buttons that automatically (!) stacks and locks in coins. With a single flick of the wrist, your change will roll out, ready to be spent! Want to lock in the remaining coins? Simply flick again. Pure magic, we tell you.

Okay, we do not mean to promote smoking (it's bad for you, kids!) but just look at this magical ashtray by Fundamental.Berlin - it's too pretty not to share. Made of lead crystal coated with an iridescent film, the REGENBOGEN (German for 'rainbow') Ashtray lives up to its name and creates a play of light at your home. For you non-smokers out there, ashtrays make pretty great storage containers for little bits and bobs.
