It has replaceable wire brushes that are dishwasher safe, a rechargable battery, LCD alarm, a time, and also has a CPU chip which allows you to control its movement, speed and direction. Take the greasy mess out of grilling!
Anyone looking to transform their body (hi New Year’s resolutions!) would love to receive a copy of Liz Hilliard, owner and creator of Hilliard Studio Method,’s first book Be Powerful: Find Your Strength at Any Age ($19.99). The book enlightens readers as to how she came to create her workout and lifestyle, as well as how she overcame one of the most challenging life events. The book inspires others to find their true, powerful self and encourage them to transform weakness to strength and get the body you’ve always wanted, no matter your age.
Brooklyn-made JLEW Bags will make a statement with that fashionable friend of yours. Founded by Jamie Lewis, the company creates fashionable bags ranging from duffles and totes to clutches. We love the Lampone Nero Celebrity Clutch ($125), which provides a fun splash of warm winter color to any outfit.
Whether an entertainer or cocktail connoisseur, The Waldorf Astoria Bar Book ($25), which received its first update since 1934 back in May, is a wonderful addition to the bookshelf. It celebrates the history of the Waldorf Astoria in New York, and also features classic cocktail recipes, along with mixology tips and more. Bar Manager Frank Caiafa imparts five years of research and countless wisdom into the book, which will help readers to master the basics and build on their skills.
Have a friend who loves entertaining? We are obsessed with the Bouquet Tray by Gian ($65) found at The Perfect Provenance. It’s super fun and will make entertaining at home seamlessly simple. What we love about shopping at The Perfect Provenance is that all of their stock is made in the USA or ethically sourced by craftsmen and family-owned businesses. If you aren’t from COnnecticut, you can head to Greenwich and check them out in person!
Know someone who needs to zen out? Undo Meditation Cushion ($150) is the best gift to give this season. It is the first and only meditation cushion that meshes design with ergonomics to provide users with the utmost support and comfort. Whether you need to de-stress from a hectic year, or just need a better seat for binging your favorite shows, this cushion, made from simple and durable materials, will have you say ‘om.’
