By  |  0 Comments

The holidays are upon us and it’s time to celebrate as well as spend, spend, spend! But picking the best gift idea isn’t always an easy task. So whether you’re celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, Festivus or National Bacon Day, here are a few great gift ideas to make the holiday season merry and bright.

COCO-JACK

The Coco Jack

Why it’s cool: You take a young coconut and use a mallet and another tool to smash it open in a way that’s both fun and surprisingly effective. Sip on the juice or scoop out the coconut meat. It doesn’t get much more raw or organic than this.

Price: $36.95 for the basic set

Where you can get it: www.coco-jack.com

The DUBS (w case)The DUBS ColorsThe DUBS HERO

DUBS Acoustic Filters

Rekorderlig Strawberry-Lime_perfect serve

Rekorderlig Cider

Why it’s cool: Each bottle of crisp cider is made from pure Swedish spring water. It also makes you more interesting than everyone else who’s bringing a bottle of wine to the party. Choose from three flavors: Strawberry-Lime, Wild Berries or Pear. 4.5% ABV.

Price: Prices vary by location

Where you can get it: Lee’s Discount Liquor, Total Wine, The Liquor Outlet, Walgreens, 7-Eleven and Khoury’s Fine Wine & Spirits

Fruit Pavlova

Fresh Fruit Pavlova

Why it’s cool: This delicious desert is perfect for the holidays and a much better option than the fruitcake that your grandmother always buys. The baked meringue shell comes topped with whipped cream and fresh, seasonal fruit.

Price: $7

Where you can get it: Gimme Some Sugar Bake Shoppe in Henderson, Nevada (www.gimmesomesugarlv.com)

Coffee

Bulletproof Coffee

Why it’s cool: Biohacker Dave Asprey specially selects what could be the healthiest coffee beans in the world… and then blends them with good-for-you fats that include grass-fed butter and MCT oil. The resulting beverage is both frothy and delicious. The idea is to give you a slow drip of caffeine and beneficial calories that fuel both your brain and body while skipping the sugar and carbs.

Price: $37.99 for the starter kit… which includes a 12 oz. bag of whole bean coffee and Upgraded Brain Octane Oil (Asprey’s supercharged version of MCT/Coconut oil)

Where you can get it: www.upgradedself.com

Price: $59.95

Where you can get it: www.istabilizer.com

BEE-Positive_with labels

Bee Positive

Why it’s cool: This cold-pressed juice is designed to be the perfect hangover cure after a night of drinking too much holiday eggnog. It’s made with filtered lemon, raw agave and activated charcoal which absorbs the alcohol that’s trying to enter your bloodstream.

Price: $11

Where you can get it: The Juice Standard in Las Vegas, Nevada (www.juicestandard.com)
