KCRW hoodie
In addition to broadcasting news from National Public Radio and airing shows about cooking, books, and politics, the Santa Monica, Calif.-based KCRW plays gorgeous cutting-edge music. KCRW spun Coldplay and Sia before mainstream radio did, and I remember hearing Adele's "Someone Like You" over a year ago. Since KCRW is a public station, it needs contributions to stay alive -- with a gift of $100 you get a Ron English-designed hoodie (membership to KCRW also gives you discounts at some of L.A.'s best restaurants and clubs).

Compartes Chocolatier
The treats of Jonathan Grahm -- gay and 20-something -- are delicious and creative. Grahm has truffle flavors like blackberry sage, Guinness beer, and pear and cardamom. My favorite product, just for sheer creativity, may be his chocolate-covered matzo. (Compartes.com)

Joseph Abboud Hudson jacket
Living in Los Angeles, I don't often have reason to wear heavy jackets. But this wool piece, with cashmere knit collar, is cut so well, I'd wear it in a heat wave.

Xeryus Rouge by Givenchy
This was the first cologne I bought, and I still snap it up when I can find it. Though hard to find in stores, it's available on the Internet and worth the shipping time -- it's a heady mix of sandalwood, cedar, red pepper, African geranium, kumquat, cactus flesh, and tarragon. That mix is strong and sensual, so it's great for a night out. (Sephora.com)

Smart car
I usually advocate biking and public transportation, but I'm obsessed with these little wonders, which are adorable and city-friendly. If you drive, look at how much space you're not using -- ditch that SUV now and get smart. (SmartUSA.com)
