Welcome to Launch Digest, where we bring you the latest and greatest product launches to hit the market across the DTC universe. It’s officially Hannukah: we’ve got no shortage of modern Judaica, along with a gift for each night from here to eternity, and the sequined dress you’ll want to wear to a few holiday parties. Because you’re a Quality Edit reader, I’m sure you’ve had your gifting settled since September. So, relax and get cozy: let’s sit by the fire and gossip about this week’s launches. Emphasis on get cozy – we’ve got a lot to cover.

Things Get Nutty
This week, I present you not one, but two pieces of nut butter news. Get Golden, the ballerina-founded snack brand known for its chewy, salty, and nourishing nut and seed bars, just launched a small batch of Sunrise Spread ($25) that’s bound to sell out before Christmas. An irresistably smooth blend of all organic cashews, almonds, walnuts, brazil nuts, chia seeds, and a touch of sea salt, GG’s Spread is stone-ground for premium texture and maximum micronutrients. Meet your new favorite pantry staple – and my new favorite source of omega-3s for my brain and body. And spirit, especially when enjoyed on a date or a piece of dark chocolate.
With a spread so addictive, you’ll want to scrape every last bit. As of this week, there’s a spoon for that. CHONK is determined to do away with the frustrating experience of tossing the remains of your favorite jar of nut butter. Don’t lose another minute of sleep thinking about how many almonds you’ve wasted – there’s a nut better way. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.) Their Scoop ($16.99) is ergonomically designed to scrape every last morsel of your Erewhon almond butter, which means it might also work for your favorite farmer’s market honey or prized jar of Ghianduja, too.
Speaking of Ghianduja…TÁCHE dropped Pot de PisTÁCHE ($48 per 2-pack) this week, decadently crafted from pistachios, dark chocolate, and a touch of coconut sugar. Think: Nutella, but minus the palm oil, additives, and hazelnuts. I haven’t personally tried this yet, but judging by my addiction to the brand’s pistachio milk, I will be using the CHONK Scoop to savor every last bit.
Susan Alexandra Stays Busy
Each Rosh Hashanah, Passover, and Hannukah, I look forward to Susan Alexandra’s Judaica drops. This December is no different – and, of course, she delivered. The label’s new Judaica collection is complete with beautiful menorahs that make for excellent family heirlooms (think of your children, be they hypothetical or real) and plenty of sweet accessories for gifting or wearing year-round. The Holiday collection is just as delight-inducing, whether you lean beaded bag or dramatically dripped-out necklace. As if that weren’t enough, Susan Alexandra launched a collaborative bag designed with Ciao Lucia just two days ago. Elegantly named the Spiaggia, it’s flirty, iridescent, hand-beaded with real seashells, and $450. Shop responsibly.
Searching For A Stocking Stuffer?
If you’re not the type who has your holiday gifting settled months ahead of time, fear not – our favorite brands are still launching plenty of giftable sets (and sales that might even be better than Black Friday mania).
For the friend who’s obsessed with all things spice and flavor, shop Fly By Jing’s December sale from now till the 20th, and get up to 40% off of all gift sets. Your own supply could also use a restock, surely, and there’s no time like the discounted present.
While we’re talking pantry essentials, I’d be remiss not to mention a treasured gift-with-purchase from Brightland. While the brand rarely runs sales – who needs a discount when the product quality merits investment? – a bonus bottle might make your holiday shopping a little sweeter. With any purchase over $100, receive a complimentary mini bottle of the ALIVE extra virgin olive oil (and free shipping). You get a bottle, along with everyone on your list: Oprah-style.
Looking for a gift for the deep-clean-oriented Virgo in your life? Blueland’s Holiday Shop is teeming with seasonally-exclusive sets, from limited edition Holiday Hand Soap scents to sustainable cleaning kits that make a box of chocolates seem so last decade.
For a gift that’s giving back, look no further than Social Goods’ collaboration with NYC-based stylist Sarah Clary. Every purchase of their chic and cozy “I Love Moms” sweatshirt sends 20% to Christy Turlington’s Every Mother Counts in support of maternity care models that advance birth justice and maternal health.
Unlikely Pairings Yield Gourmet Results – Some Edible, Others Not
Graza, a brand that seems to turn out a new collab every other week, is blessing your panoply of holiday treats with an Olive Oil & Mascarpone cookie, made in partnership with LA-based Stuffed Cookies. Perfected with a blend of Graza’s olive oil, brown butter, citrus zest, a creamy vanilla bean mascarpone filling, and a crunchy sage shortbread crumble, I’ll be shocked if you haven’t ordered a dozen before this sentence is over. Oh, and each box comes with a set of Graza’s Sizzle and Drizzle oils. You’re a hero if you gift this instead of hiding it under your own tree.
Meanwhile, Banza collaborated with Dauphinette – known for its use of preserved botanicals and repurposed textiles – and Yukiko Morita at Pampshade. (If you haven’t already seen Pampshade’s Bread Lamps, let’s take five while you browse, meet you back here.) The result is only safe for visual consumption. Inspired by Banza’s new breakfast waffles, these real waffles are coated in resin, baked, and made into a very limited batch of wall clocks ($150) that double as pieces of whimsical art. It’s 2023, get used to it!
Before You Go…
We’re not done yet. I’ll be economical with my words, promise.
J. Crew partnered with Anna October for a capsule of evening wear that is suspiciously well-timed to save your life for any and all upcoming holiday soirees. I just know someone needs this feather-trim top (I’m that someone, maybe you are, too).
Tekla launched new striped colorways of its cult-favorite hooded bathrobe. Glossier and Starface executed a collaboration that’s so brand-aligned, it’s difficult to come to terms with the fact that it didn’t already exist, marrying Glossier’s iconic sticker sheets and Starface’s hydrocolloid pimple-zapping and protecting technology.
Quince, the platform that cuts out the middle man to offer quality products and transparent pricing, is ready to break into your kitchen. The brand just launched a 6-piece Stainless Steel Cookware Set ($299), made with five layers of stainless steel and aluminum in Italy. It’s also responsibly and sustainably produced, and completely non-toxic. Would look extra-shiny under a Christmas tree.
