They’re available in 3 different sizes and also in sets of 3 or 7, making it easy to gift to one person or a bunch of your select friends. Just adorable.

Himalayan salt tequila glasses

Um, hellooooo, gorgeous! Hand-carved and deliciously pucker-inducing, these tequila shot glasses are beautiful, functional, and their naturally antibacterial property makes them totally reusable. We can’t get over just how pretty and festive they are! Almost too good to use, but pair them with a top-shelf tequila like this Fortaleza Tequila Blanco and you’ve got the perfect gift for your spirits connoisseur.

Backyard tic tac toe

 

Backyard Tic Tac Toe

Spikeball is to Disturbed’s Down with the Sickness, as Backyard Tic Tac Toe is to Bruno Mars’ The Lazy Song. Maybe you’ve heard of Spikeball, (or maybe you haven’t) the ultra-competitive, high-energy game you can set up in your backyard, the beach, the park, Times Square, the potato chip rock in California, and so on. Backyard Tic Tac Toe is kind of like that except waaay more chilled out. Give the gift of friendly, laid-back backyard barbecue games this Christmas with this iconic game whittled out of birch wood. It takes us back to the days of playing tic tac toe on the cover of your brown paper bag-wrapped textbooks, except more sophisticated.

Price: $50

Custom Hat

Does that picture not make you just want to pass out? The styling is to-die-for, and it’s all based around those adorable hats. Nick Fouquet’s designs have graced the noggins of the likes of Cara Delevingne, DL Hughley, and Behati Prinsloo. Nick is a master milliner (fancy word for “hatmaker”) and while his designs command higher price tags, his work is worth the splurge for that someone extra special. P.S. I’m pretty sure that’s Nick himself in the picture. Swoon.
