Take 1: If you're searching for the perfect gift for your fiercely feminist friends

They'll get lost in the inaugural issue of No Man's Land, the print magazine from women-only community space The Wing. It's a new platform dedicated to capturing the "smart and defiant voices of Wing Women everywhere" and features the likes of Brie Larson, Nora Ephron, Tavi Gevinson, and more.

Take 2: If the "pink tax" on feminine hygiene products makes your blood boil

Billie, a subscription service providing "razors made for womankind," is here for you. Founded on the belief that women's products shouldn't have a higher price tag just because they're marketed toward women, Billie provides quality bodycare products minus the "pink tax." Get started for just $9.

Take 3: If you wish you had a fireplace in your apartment

West Elm's new fireplace app and YouTube channel is the next best thing. Featuring the sounds of four different crackling fires, including rustic, minimal, luxe, and modern fireplace versions, each one will set the tone for a relaxing evening at home (or an intimate holiday party).

Take 4: If you're a bit of a novice in the kitchen

Direct-to-consumer kitchenware service Material wants to change that. The design-conscious brand will set you up with the essentials, helping you build a solid foundation in the kitchen. Preorder the fundamentals, which include a slotted spatula, tongs, wooden spoon, metal spoon, eight-inch knife, four-inch knife, and a base to hold it all.

Take 5: If buying a pregnancy test was an unnerving experience

Meet Lia: the first and only FDA-approved flushable, biodegradable pregnancy test. Designed for those who value both privacy and sustainability, Lia gives customers the convenience of flushing their results if they so choose and sharing the news on their own terms. Sign up on the website to be notified of the tests' availability.

Your afternoon pick-me-up

'Tis the season for imbibing and, as a result, waking up to a splitting headache. Which is why we felt it our duty to put Morning Recovery on your radar. Drink one after a night out and before going to bed to save you from a hangover the next morning (we can vouch for its effectiveness).
