Type of Gift Recommendation: A Gift for Iced Coffee Lovers

HyperChiller Iced Coffee Maker

unique holiday gifts

“At its core, the HyperChiller V2 is a straightforward device … I poured my freshly brewed coffee into the container (it’s compatible with most single serving coffee creations, or just a cup from the communal pot), and 50 seconds later (I’m an impatient person, ok?) I made my first pour. The result was decidedly chilled coffee. It wasn’t lukewarm or on its way to becoming cold — it was as though I had pulled a cup of coffee from the fridge after hours of chilling, but without losing any of the flavor of just-brewed goodness.”

The coffee press from Apollo Box is an easy way for your coworker to make coffee at their desk, in a hotel room, on the road, or anywhere they feel the need for a caffeine boost.

Type of Gift Recommendation: A Gift for Grill Masters

Z Grills 7002

unique holiday gifts

Z Grills is one of the new high-tech do-it-all pellet smokers that is perfect for traditional BBQ but also grills, bakes, roasts, braises, and sears, and does all of these easily. The digital thermostat controls an auger that delivers pellets to the fire, automatically adding as needed to regulate the temperature, which covers an extremely versatile 180-450° range. The design also features fan-forced convection heat distribution, so your food gets cooked evenly no matter which side is up, so it’s truly low maintenance, no fuss cooking. As an added bonus, it is much easier to assemble than most grills, and some are a real pain.”

Ceramic Soup Bowl Set

unique holiday gifts

“Okay, I double dare you to find a bowl cuter than this critter ceramic soup bowl! It comes in three different forest friends: fox, raccoon and squirrel. And each one comes with a lid and matching utensil with a “tail” for a handle. I mean, c’mon. Does it get any more dang adorable than that??”

Type of Gift Recommendation: For Games of Thrones Fans

 Games of Thrones Makeup Brushes

unique holiday gifts

The set includes eight incredibly detailed brushes featuring sigils and house words on their metal handles. This explains why these brushes are much heavier than your average makeup applicator. But that doesn’t mean they’re any harder to use! If anything, the weight from the decorative handle actually makes the application process easier. And no, the brushes don’t leave imprints or stray hairs in my palettes either.”

Toasted Bread Slippers

unique holiday gifts

Carb lovers rejoice! Instead of ingesting the calories, wear them. It’s a bread basket that Paleo, Adkins, and Whole30 guest can all dig their hands into. These slippers, while also replicated after our favorite dinner rolls, are a super comfy way to walk around the house.”
