We love flying kites. It's sort of like fishing - a task that requires you sit with a line in your hand and do essentially nothing else but toss back some wine coolers. Except fishing can turn scaly and gross, while the worst consequence of kite flying is ending up on the ground (as long as we stay away from power lines and thunderstorms). This Floralia Kite ($160) makes the experience even more aesthetic, with its elegant rice-paper-and-pressed-flower construction.
