The Holidays are a time when we tend to indulge in a little more fancy drinking. Wine is an extremely popular Holiday drink choice and if you are like us, then you may have an issue with figuring out where to store your wine glasses. The ‘Spinella 4 Hanging Wine Bottle and Glass Rack’ is a hanging rack that can be mounted under kitchen cabinets. While it may seem a little dangerous, the rack itself is quite sturdy, so there’s no need to worry about all of your glasses falling and breaking. Not to mention, the design is pretty cool.

You’d be hard pressed to find a more versatile pair of kicks than the Nike Blazers. They’re perfect skate shoes, but also work well as everyday walking shoes. The ankle support alone makes it one of the most comfortable shoes in the game, and the color options provide a little something for everyone. The pink foam Nike swoosh is a personal favorite. The leather quality allows them to be dressed up or down; the Nike Blazer really makes an unbelievable addition to almost anyone’s closet.

With a good percentage of kids and adults being homeschooled this year, you may be stumped as to what to cook for breakfast every morning. The ‘Nostalgia Mini Waffle Maker’ is an enjoyable option for a quick and easy breakfast, and while it does say Waffle Maker, you can also use it to cook French Toast, Grilled Cheese, Quesadillas, etc. The cool thing about the waffle maker is that it can also be a fun bonding experience for those with children, younger siblings, etc.

The ‘Onestep+ Instant Camera’ is a great way for you to capture those throwback picture vibes, while getting creative with your photography skills. Despite its vintage style, the camera gives you a more “modern feel” by allowing you to connect to the official Polaroid app through Bluetooth.

Everything said above about the men’s blazers can be said about the women’s iteration. However, the women’s edition has a little added flair in the form of a couple extra silvery Nike checks placed above and below the larger check that graces the side of the upper. The blazer is a timeless classic, and the addition of these sneaky little checks gives them a unique contemporary feel.

A good crewneck is a mainstay of any cohesive autumn wardrobe. And this entry from Nike, which comes in a beautiful violet frost or black, makes a great gift for someone working to build out their fall cozy fit repertoire. The fit is a little shorter in the torso with some more room and length in the arms, giving it a more stylish silhouette than your traditional crewneck. The mini silvery Nike logo really seals the deal.

Have you ever been in the process of frying something on the stove, and then all of a sudden a pop of grease hits you? That’s an uncomfortable feeling right? Well the ‘NuWave Air Fryer’ helps you avoid that all together. The fryer is an easy (and less painful) way to fry your Chicken, French Fries, Fish, etc. The process is simple, just preheat the fryer, put your food in, and the air fryer will handle the rest. Using an air fryer also means that you don’t have to constantly watch your food (as opposed to frying on the stove). If you need to step away for a little bit, you can do so without letting your food burn.

The taped hem full-zip hoodie from Nike is an absolute slam dunk. It’s cozy and soft, but boasts a more athletic fit than your traditional roomy hoodie. The full zip gives you more customization options for layering, and the Nike logos plastered across the bottom hem can peak out for a fun added logo integration. It stands out a little more than your traditional single color hoodie, but is still low profile enough for anyone to experiment with.

Although Aesop's products might be a bit more expensive than your usual shaving staples, once you use their serum and post-shave lotion, you're never going to go back. The duet makes a great gift for the man with sensitive skin or really just about anyone who enjoys a close shave. We'd also recommend their face cleansers and hand washes; pretty much everything from Aesop makes an amazing gift.
