  1. UncommonGreen 18th & 21st Amendment rocks glass set

    – December 2017 marks 100 years since Congress approved the first resolution to establish a nationwide prohibition of alcohol sales. That makes this holiday season a perfect opportunity to gift this set of two 11-ounce cocktail glasses with printed constitutional amendments. One memorializing the passage of the 18th Amendment, which banned booze sales. The other touting the 21st Amendment, which repealed Prohibition. By purchasing this set of two rocks glasses, your special drinking buddy will always be ready to celebrate being legally free to consume his or her favorite adult beverages, and may even invite you over for a pour, $28.


  1. Boothill Blades Fruit and Veggie Board

    – These 5×9-inch wooden cutting and serving boards, which slightly vary in size due to their one-of-a-kind hand-crafting, provide a look of natural style when used to present party bites, and they make a perfectly-sized platform for cutting lighter portions of veggies, fruits and more. Even better? Each board comes preseasoned with mineral oil and protective and restorative board butter. This makes it beautiful and ready to use as soon as your giftee unwraps it, $35.
