Crossrope Get Lean Jump Rope Set, $99
Jumping rope is one of my favorite ways to get a quick workout in, and this weighted set takes it to the next level.

The Crossrope Lite app that accompanies these ropes keeps the workouts fresh with new routines. —Mavis Brefo, director of international growth

A forgivingly easy and pleasant instrument that can be centering, calming, and meditative. Whether you’re a seasoned musician or you have no idea what key a song is in, the handpan drum will give you an opportunity to focus on the moment and detach from racing thoughts about the world around you. —Chris Delbuck, head of product design
