The 2,000-square-foot specialty retailer Onward Reserve (online at onwardreserve.com) recently opened in Park Road Shopping Center, offering men’s gifts, apparel and more. Here are three fab finds from the new space:
Why water it down?
Big boys will have a ball with The Original Whiskey Ball, slow-melting spheres that scream sophistication. Invented by avid scotch drinkers, the 2 1/2-inch ice balls are made with a flexible silicone material ideal for instant removal of ice. Pack of two, $23.95.
Never miss a local story.
For coffee or cocktails
Smathers & Branson’s 100 percent hand-stiched needlepoint drink coasters come in a variety of school colors and make a great grad gift. Four coasters sit prettily in a polished wood holder. $75.
Hot ticket item
Sweeten up the man cave or bachelor pad with hints of bourbon and brown sugar caramel. Sydney Hale mixes the two scents with soy and dual vegetable wax, creating sensual smells in a silkscreened glass. Classic apothecary design begs repurposing as a drinking glass, vase or supply holder. $28.
