If you're looking to recreate the spin studio experience at home, the Peloton Bike ($1,995, pelotoncycle.com) was made for you. Each high-tech bike comes loaded with a tablet that streams live Peloton classes from around the globe that you can also save and watch later, which means you can take as many classes as you want, whenever they fit in your schedule. The bike and $39 monthly subscription are pricey, but it's a win-win if you plan to use it on the regular or if you can split costs with your cycling-loving roomie or boyfriend.

Keep Bugs at Bay Without "That" Smell

You don't have to smell like a citronella candle or DEET to ward off mosquitoes and other big bites. Aussie's love Vanessa Megan Bug Off and Roll On ($34.95; lunasolorganics.com), which makes sure that you're unappealing to insects but appealing to other people around you thanks to essential oils, including rosemary, eucalyptus, tea tree, and lavender while moisturizing at the same time with camellia, sunflower, and coconut oil.
