A book to covet

A designer saber

Whacking the top off 
a Champagne bottle with a sword always impresses (at least if you do it right—check out our how-to video). This sleek, mirror-finished blade 
will only add to the drama of the moment. $200; georgjensen.com.

The ultimate champagne preserver

of fizz for over a week. Now home connoisseurs can try it, too. $200; perlagesystems.com.
