Cuisinart X-Cold™ Cocktail Set
Until this year, we didn’t know that Cuisinart even made cocktail paraphernalia. We’re glad they do, because the X-Cold Cocktail Set is awesome. Along with being beautiful, it’s really cool… and that’s not just a really bad pun! The problem with most cocktail shakers is that they rely on ice cubes mixed in with the cocktail. Sure, it cools things down, but it also waters things down. The X-Cold system freezes the ice right inside the shaker so that the shaker is ice cold and you don’t end up with a watered down drink!

Fizzics Draft Beer System
Get yours today at: Fizzics
Nothing beats an ice cold beer, fresh from the tap at your local bar. Sadly, you just can’t get that flavor from the can or bottle. Oh wait. Yes you can! We aren’t sure exactly what manner of sorcery the Fizzics Draft Beer System is, but we do know that it somehow manages to take a can of beer and make it awesome! They say it has something to do with the microfoam that their tap creates, and how it gives you a smoother and more pleasurable mouthfeel. We can’t really tell you if that’s the magic sauce here. We just know that we had way too much fun trying different beers in and out of the Fizzics. From the parts of the evening we were able to remember, Fizzics won every single time, no matter whether it was a can, bottle, or Growler, or anything from a can of Pabst to a fancy micro brew. If you’ve got a Beer Aficionado on your list. Fizzics is a must!

Wineovation Powered Wine Opener
If you’ve got a friend who loves wine and enjoys a good firearm, you might have just stumbled upon the perfect gift. The Wineovation is a novelty wine opener that actually works really well. Oh, and it happens to be shaped like a giant hand gun. Just put the top of the wine bottle in the barrel and pull the trigger. In just a couple seconds, it will have removed the cork for you. Now, just pull the trigger in the other direction and the cork comes out of the barrel and into your hand. With it’s cordless charger stand, there’s no batteries to mess with. It works great. It looks awesome. It even comes in the Baseball Bat of your favorite MLB team (if guns aren’t your thing). We loved the Wineovation and it was the talk of Thanksgiving dinner.

The Wine Rack
Do you have a female friend (or someone who identifies as female), that loves their wine, but can’t seem to figure out a way to sneak it around to all their favorite public events? Perhaps you could make their dreams come true by getting them the Wine Rack. To the untrained observer, it just looks like your friend’s breasts have gotten a little bigger, but that’s because this bra contains a Removable polyurethane bladder that can be filled up with their favorite beverage, be it water, wine or even chocolate milk (though that seems like a waste). The wine is then accessed through a long straw that has a shut off valve, ensuring that there’s no accidental spillage. There are a lot of women who would be much happier with the Winerack in their lives.

the Beer Belly
If The Winerack is a woman’s best friend, than the Beer Belly is the perfect treat for any guy looking to sneak some happy juice into a public event. Sure, you’ll look a little too chubby to attract any of the ladies, but you’ll be so pleasantly buzzed that you won’t even notice. Just like the Winerack, it works by allowing you to fill a removable bladder with the beverage of your choice. Then, you just suck it up through the attached straw. Thankfully, this also comes with a valve to close off the straw, so you don’t end up looking like you’ve prematurely “broken the seal.”

Tovolo Stainless Cocktail Shaker
We think that Tovolo makes a lot of great stuff, and most people don’t even know who they are. If you are looking for a good host gift this holiday season, they are a great place to look, especially if you want to give your host an affordable, but extremely versatile cocktail shaker. They somehow made the cocktail shaker better. The top now has a reamer, so you can quickly add fresh juice. It also has a platform that helps break up ice and prevent clumping. It makes a darn smooth cocktail and it will make its recipient, one darn happy holiday giftee.

Tovolo Clear Ice System
It’s amazing how much people lose their mind over ice balls. There are all kinds of devices for them, but if you want them crystal clear, you’ve usually got to plunk down a couple of hundred dollars. Tovolo has cracked the code on this and now even the common man or woman can get their hands on ice balls so clear, Jareth will want to roll them over his fingers. The way it works is by pushing the oxygen down into the lower chamber of the mold, assuring that the top ball is perfect. The bottom one is cool to, but you know you’ll be gazing longingly at that top ball. This is another one of those things that make for a perfect host gift or stocking stuffer.
