The lens mug craze seems to be cooling down, but now there’s another product on the market that can help you stay cool (literally): the Canon lens cooling fan.

Etsy seller Mariko Carandang sells handmade jewelry, and one of her products is this small treasure locket that’s meant to look a little like the Polaroid SX-70.
The treasure locket is perfect for those of us who find and get attached to small objects that get lost in the bottom of a pocket or handbag, but don’t quite fit in a wallet. It will keep those trifling but meaningful objects close to you at all times. You can use it to carry a tiny photograph or a good luck charm. Keep a scroll of paper with your favorite quote on it– a quote you mean to live by.
