Wines that are best enjoyed chilled should actually come chilled. This 3-in-1 tool aerates, chills and pours, all at once. After the stick has been frozen for at least two hours, it only takes 15 minutes for it to chill an entire bottle, and it can keep it chilled for up to an hour.
For the giftee who prefers brews over vino, these beer "coats" make for a fun gift they can actually use. They can help keep their cans cool and prevent their fingers from freezing, plus the notch on the coats can be used to open bottles.

This laser light can help keep your cat stimulated, but turns off after 15 minutes of use to prevent them from being overstimulated.
