Since June's not going to do it, this month's Greatest Hits provides sunny nuggets from all across Thrillist Nation before awkwardly burning your neck.
Emailed to Philly: Condom Pillows
Measuring 18" x 17", these handmade pillows are silkscreened with blown-up packaging art from LifeStyles, and feature a zippered pocket for stashing actual jimmy hats, ironic because the type of guy who'd appoint his bed with a condom pillow is exactly the type who'd "accidentally" leave that pocket bare.
Everybody needs a condom for a pillow...

Emailed To Nation: Cocoon Innovations
Just now throwing open the doors to their e-shop, Cocoon's compu-totes feature a patent-pending grid system capable of seamlessly adjusting to secure any conceivable array of extras, eschewing the typical cluttered pouches/pockets designed to fit specific items like notepads, pens, and other things you'd use if you didn't already have a computer.

Give your boys a proper home
Emailed to Washington D.C.: Thousand Oaks Barrel Canteens
From a Manassas, VA outfit, these stylishly antiquated, bunged one-liter canteens are handcrafted from American White Oak. Optional engraving includes a skulled "Poison", "White Lightning", and "Drink or Die" -- considering you're carrying a liter of hooch, the two may not be mutually exclusive.
So parched...fill your canteen now
