Slam Dunk

If you love dunking sandwich cookies in milk, this is the kitchen tool for you! The Dipr ($2.99, thedipr.com) is "the ultimate cookie spoon."

By holding onto the frosting of cookies, which doesn't disintegrate in liquids as quickly, you can dunk longer and with less mess. Plus, it's kid-friendly: The Dipr is made of flexible medical-grade plastic.

Flower Power

A cute gift for the little chef in your life, Kizmos' Flower Pot Tool Set ($29.99, lifetimebrands.com/kizmos) is a collection of kitchen gadgets — a turner, slotted spoon, ladle, spoon, and masher — designed to look like flowers, housed in a ceramic vase.

Unlike real blossoms, this bouquet is made from heat-resistant nylon and is dishwasher-safe.

Holy Guacamole

Avocados can be slippery little buggers, which makes slicing them tricky — and potentially unsafe.

To the rescue: The OXO 3-in-1 Avocado Slicer (in white or green, $9.99, oxo.com) lets you split, pit, and slice avocados with one tool.

Shake It Out

The BlenderBottle SportMixer ($14.99 for 28oz and $12.99 for 20oz, amazon.com) is popular for blending up protein shakes — but when put to the test, the manufacturer claims it can also whip cream in two minutes.

Made from Eastman Tritan plastic so it won't retain scents, the shaker couldn't be easier to use: Insert ingredients for anything from pancakes to smoothies, drop in the BlenderBall, then shake.

Line It Up

If you like things just so, then this is the cutting board of your dreams. Fred & Friends' The Obsessive Chef cutting board ($26, amazon.com) is laid out with a grid so you can julienne as precisely as possible. Get chopping!

This silicone tool is designed to help avoid burning the bottom of food and make sure that your meal doesn't mix with any greasy drippings. Plus you can use it as a trivet, for a little extra style on your table!

      It was during training for his new job as a flight attendant in a business class cabin that Brad* realised what he was in for. As Brad – who works for a major US airline flying both domestic and international – would soon come to realise, working “up front” isn’t the easy ride you’d assume. “A lot of flight attendants don’t like working in first because it’s more work and the passengers tend to be more needy [than in economy],” he says.

    • The Brutal Truth About Why Gen-Xers Hate Millennials (That No One Wants to Admit)

      The real reason that Gen-Xers hate Millennials is simple and terrifying. It's so obvious that most of us spend our lives ignoring this basic fact and do everything in our power to pretend it isn't the case. But before I tell you the terrible truth about this intergenerational feud, I'm going to show you why this conflict exists using psychology. As a life coach, licensed therapist, and someone earning my doctorate in clinical psychology, I get significant exposure to a wide range of psychological thoughts. One of my favorite aspects of my profession is the opportunity to share this information with others. And seeing the constant headlines describing the conflict between Gen-Xers and Millennials

      Mar-a-Lago sits along a coveted stretch of coastline in Palm Beach, Fla. It was built between 1924 and 1927 by cereal heiress and socialite Marjorie Merriweather Post. Donald Trump purchased the property, which he would later dub the “Winter White House,” in 1985 for $5 million and used it solely as a private residence until turning it into a private members-only club in 1995. The Mar-a-Lago Club also boasts an oceanfront swimming pool, a beauty salon, a spa, five red clay tennis courts, a croquet court, and seaside cabanas.
