In this week’s roundup of hot new stuff to buy before it’s gone, Otherland’s moody holiday candle set, a very weather-appropriate sweater from Everlane, Drew Barrymore’s newest home-décor drop, and Billie Eilish x Urban Outfitters merch.
Arlo Skye x Dusen Dusen
Direct-to-consumer luggage brand Arlo Skye (founded by alums of Tumi and Louis Vuitton) just announced its limited-edition collaboration with Brooklyn-based designer Ellen Van Dusen. The collection includes three sizes: carry-on max, carry-on with front pocket, and check-in. All of them feature Dusen Dusen’s signature poppy print lining plus leather luggage tag, and removable laundry and shoe bags. Both carry-ons come with removable phone chargers.
A wooden (and customizable) jumbo Lego figure
Inspired by the first toys made by Lego creator Ole Kirk Christiansen, this wooden Lego “Minifigure” is actually five times the size of regular Legos. Each wooden Lego figure comes with a collectible book illustrating the company’s history and instructions on how to create a handful of different setups using the included Lego bricks. Because it’s made of an unfinished blonde wood, this li’l guy will fit right in with your Scandinavian vintage toys. Or as Lego encourages, you can customize the blank figure to show your creativity.
Tulipmania by Byredo
Inspired by the great Dutch tulip-bulb frenzy of the mid 1600s, this hand soap from beloved perfume and candle brand Byredo is sure to create its own sensation. And for the real Tulipmania freaks, the scent also comes in moisturizing creams for hands and body as well as a lovely hand soap.

Drew Barrymore Flower Home for Walmart
This particular shape of lamp is having a moment, so at under $50 in two very easy-to-match colors — navy and rust orange — Barrymore’s mushroom lamp from her new Flower Home collection for Walmart will not last.
Everything in the Flower Home collection is worth checking out but we’ve got a feeling about this set of party glasses, namely that we’d like to see them filled with eggnog ASAP.
Otherland holiday set
David Yurman candles
However, for those with more classic design tastes David Yurman’s Cypress Scent candle is the one to watch.
Everlane’s coziest sweater to date
Billie Eilish x Urban Outfitters Merch
Teen musician Billie Eilish has a singular alien-punk way of dressing — oversize shirts, shorts, and jackets plus neon-green everything — which has her close to 42 million fans enthralled. If you didn’t get a chance to score her tour merch, this exclusive collection with Urban Outfitters is your next best bet.
A hoodie for fans who prefer neutrals.
A Billie-emblazoned balaclava for winter fanning out.
Hidden Valley Ranch Holiday Merch
HVR does a yearly collection of holiday merch and this year’s, which dropped yesterday, does not disappoint, even if you’re not a fan of the dressing. This widemouthed stainless-steel water bottle that’ll make you look a bit like you’re chugging actual ranch is perhaps the best of the bunch.
