It’s that time of the year, so let’s get started!
First up is the versatile “Pour Over Press” coffee maker from W and P Design. This allows you to make traditional pour-over coffee using a filter cup; French press coffee with the plunger attachment; or cold brew coffee. This products retails for $75. A great gift for any coffee lover!
Also from W and P is a nice stocking-stuffer: The Carry-On Cocktail Kit. This kit has the ingredients needed to add to booze to make two complete cocktails. Varieties available include: Old Fashioned, Gin and Tonic, Moscow Mule, Champagne Cocktail, Bloody Mary, and a Hot Toddy. Each set retails for $24 and is available at their website, or at stores like Restoration Hardware, where, as of this writing, it is on sale online for $14.
While we’re on the subject of cocktails, acclaimed bartender Charles Joly has come up with a line of products to make your mixing more stylish. The collection is called Crafthouse by Fortessa, and I’d suggest a couple of options. First is the Shaker Set, which comes with a two piece Boston shaker, a 2 oz. Jigger, a muddler, and a Hawthorne strainer. It retails on Amazon for $100 plus shipping.
The other set from this line is the Bar Tool set. This set comes with a peeler, a knife, a channel knife for making twists, and a black walnut bar board. It’s available at Dillards online for $90.
Now, how about a stocking stuffer for your teenage son or daughter. It’s not glamorous, but boy is it useful–the remodeez odor and moisture remover. It provides a non-toxic solution to remove everyday odors. It uses activated charcoal derived from coconut husks to absorb odor at the source. You can place them in your shoes, around the house, or in your gym bag. Check out the available styles and place your order at remodeez.
And finally, some websites with cool, funky products, too many items to list individually:
Enjoy, and Happy Holidays!
