This Week’s Must-Haves: An Andrew Christian Body Shaper, Blinged-Out Water Bottle and the Newest Rolex
This week, we’ve got a sexy Andrew Christian body shaper to improve your clothes’ fit. There’s also a $1,500 water bottle — but it’s for a great cause. And the perfect accessory for your ultra-expensive water bottle — a sporty, sophisticated Rolex. From hot to functional, our weekly must-haves range in price from just $10 to over $11,000; you’ll find something to love on any budget!
1. S’well, Swarovski Alina Brilliant Crystal Embellished Bottle
Thirsty for bling? S’well, the Manhattan-based reusable water bottle company, has the perfect solution. This Swarovski crystal-covered water bottle is BPA-free and made of stainless steel. It uses Thermas’well™ technology to keep your beverages cold or hot. Though it’s undeniably beautiful, we’re betting this bottle is a little hard to wash. (We wouldn’t recommend putting it in the dishwasher.)
This blinged-out bottle retails at $1,500 — expensive, but for a good cause. S’well is donating all net proceeds of the limited-edition bottles to support Swarovski’s Waterschool program. Waterschool is improving both education and access to clean water for children and communities who need support. $1500 at saksfifthavenue.com
2. 2017 Rolex Sea Dweller Watch
Rolexes have been long considered the greatest watch money can buy. The new generation of the Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller definitely keeps to Rolex’s high standards.

If you’ve ever grumbled about the tiny numbers displaying the date, relax! The new Sea-Dweller features a Cyclops lens on the crystal at 3 o’clock. You’ll look dashing, sporty and rich with this high-performance elegant timepiece. $11,350 at rolex.com

6. ActiveSlim Seamless & Tagless Body Shaper by Andrew Christian
From its hot models and provocative ads to their vibrant, colorful designs, Andrew Christian is synonymous with sexy underwear. Every gay man has at least one pair of AC in his closet. But in addition to skimpy underwear, AC also has a line of body shapers. The ActiveSlim Seamless and Tagless Body Shaper gives you the comfort and support you need, in Andrew Christian’s signature boxers style. A higher waist provides a smoother feel eliminating visible lines. With a super-lightweight, body-hugging design, this comfortable shaper creates a flattering silhouette underneath your everyday clothes. And don’t worry guys — there’s also an, ahem, anatomically correct pouch for extra comfort. Act quickly, though — this is a limited edition! $25 at andrewchristian.com
