Visiting friends this Holiday or looking for something to bring some Holiday Cheer to your house?
1–800-Flowers offers some amazing specials, delivered quickly. Our favorites are the Candy Cane Lilies.
Since moving to Cali, camping has become our new favorite weekend activity. Laying under the redwoods, campfires, smores, what more can you ask for? We bought this relatively inexpensive 4-person tent to take on our adventures, and although I’m not sure it will fit 4 people comfortably, it definitely can fit at least 2 people + a Toasty!
We’re big fans of GUNNAR over at The Mission. Their team is awesome, and we’ve even published a story about all the problems presented by digital eye strain and how to protect your peepers! Gunnar is still offering fans of The Mission 20% off all gear when you use the code, “MISSION17” at check out. Staring at digital devices all day will destroy your eyesight. If you’re like us and work behind the faint blue glow of laptops, computers, and phones, we strongly recommend buying or gifting some Gunnars this Holiday season.
Before buying a more expensive drone such as the DJIs, having a mini “play” drone to learn from can be a game changer. And if it crashes, it’s wayyy less stressful than seeing a new $1K drone tumble to the ground.
Extra batteries are key when taking your drone on all the fun adventures that await. Battery life is still something that needs some improvement, however having one charging hub that can charge multiple batteries is a life saver.
We’ve been following the team behind this startup for years and boy have they created some cool tech. What started as an iPhone-controlled little ball that you can play with in your home or on the sidewalk has grown into an army of robots. With the release of the new Star Wars movie, they partnered with Disney to make a BB8, then R2D2 and even went into the land of Pixar with Lightning McQueen of Cars fame. Playing with your dog with one of these is the most fun you’ll have all weekend. Sphero now offers dozens of different robotic toys that range in price from $49 to a few hundred dollars.
Price: $49 — $200+
FuseChicken for your cords, cables, and docking stations
If you’re tired of broken, tangled chords, your problems have been solved. FuseChicken had us at FuseChicken, and once we got past the name we discovered an incredible product. They’re literally the toughest cables on earth. FuseChicken cables now stretch out across The Mission’s office. Plus, they have travel cables and docking stations for iPhone, Android, Macbook and MicroUSB.
Google Chromecast — Easily stream shows and lectures to the TV
How much can you get for the price of a t-shirt? How about giving the gift of no longer paying for an expensive cable TV subscription, cutting the cord, and going straight streamin, brah. The Google Chromecast fits the bill perfectly at $35. It plugs into the HDMI port in the back of your TV and the power outlet in your wall. After a short WiFi connection setup process, you’re off to the races for Netflix, HBO, YouTube, ESPN, and of course the Google Play store for new movies. Citing over 200,000 TV shows and movies and another 30 million songs, with Chromecast there’s always something on.
Perfect Christmas gift idea for the ultimate entertainment lover.
Yoga is one of those great ways to stay in shape for both your mind and your spirit. The right studio, mixed with the right teacher can really make a difference in your practice. And if carrying a mat to the studio is a bit of a pain for you or your gift recipient, may we recommend one that folds up to fit in tight spaces and only weighs two pounds. This Manduka mat is great for travel and even daily use.
Keep The Phone Out of the Bedroom, Get a Sunrise Alarm Clock
Your phone shouldn’t be the last thing you look at before you go to bed or the first thing you look at when you wake up. Get an alarm clock and keep that thing out of the bedroom. We recommend the Sunrise Alarm Clock. Fall asleep to rain, ocean waves, or your choice of ambient noise, and wake up by a gentle, sunlight-like glow.
Your teeth are an important part of your health, not just from an image perspective, but also because it’s one of the places where infection can spread rapidly. It’s a damp, open space into your body. So take care of your teeth. May we recommend the Quip brush, designed to fit any mouth.
Pop Your Pup T-Shirt — Having some fun with your pup
For the pet lover in us all, the process is really quite simple. Take a snapshot of the pup, upload the photo to the website and work with an illustrator / artist to make your own graphic. Then they print it on a t-shirt and send it your way. If you’re sly enough, you might be able to get a pic of the pup while the owner isn’t looking or just ask them for one of their favorite photos of their dog because you miss him or her.
We’ve all got plenty of photos collecting dust inside our smart phone camera rolls. Give the gift of a memory by taking one of those photos and having it printed on canvas, then wrapped around a frame. You can hang it straight on the wall or lean it against the back of a bookshelf. From $70 to $175 depending on size, you can personalize it to your heart’s content. Meeemmmoorrrrieeeees, like the cooorrrrnnerrrrr of my miiiiiind. (Comes standard without the horrible singing).
Having a chair that lets you elevate your legs above the level of your heart promotes circulation and reduces the stress on your vertebrae. Almost all of the writing at The Mission takes place in Zero Gravity chairs (or standing desks). Check one out for better sitting health, if there is such a thing!
Wanna get outdoors more in 2018? A hammock goes a long way in helping you connect with nature. This one is affordable and reliable (it’s made out of parachute material).
