Corkcicle Chillsner Beer Chiller, $29.95 per pair, corkcicle.com
The Corkcicle seems like kind of a gag gift that you might get for someone who's known to hit the wine a little frequently: a metal "icicle" that you freeze and then plunge down the neck of a bottle of wine to keep it cool. But hey, rosé doesn't taste good warm, and they work. Corkcicle now makes a beer bottle-sized version called the Chillsner. They come in a pack of two, and if you drink as fast as we do, that should be enough to get you through a whole room-temp sixer without having to resort to the wet paper towel trick.

 David Bowie Play Book, by Matteo Guarnaccia and Giulia Pivetta (ACC Editions, 96 pages, $29.95)
The old truism that "the clothes make the man," was never more true than in the case of Bowie.

This quirky, oversize tome one-ups "adult coloring books" to present "adult paper-doll books," wherein you may dress your own Bowies as you please from a dazzling area of actual stagewear.
