You’ll easily score a touchdown with your party guests with this fun Inflatable Goal Post Cooler with Football. I love how it holds 60 cans in the cooler, and that it comes with its own football for half-time play.
I don't know about you, but if I had a dime for every time I walked around a party trying to figure out which red cup was mine…well, I’d have an awful lot of dimes. So this year, I’m getting Etch-It Cups for my game day bashes, because they let you scratch your name right on 'em, so you never lose track again!
When I think of al fresco dining, I think of sangria — you know, that yummy concoction of fruit slices, red (or white) wine and juice. And, of course, you can't serve your sangria in any old container. Only a true sangria pitcher will do to wow your guests. This selection of sangria pitchers includes traditional, festive Spanish-style ceramic pitchers, as well as clear glass and even brass pitchers.
Help the newlyweds keep up the romance with this Picnic Time Windsor Picnic Basket Service for Four. The attractive picnic set features a traditional English design with navy corduroy lining, willow basket, and leather accents. It includes porcelain plates, wine glasses, a corkscrew, stainless steel utensils and mugs, cotton napkins, a cutting board, and even a fleece blanket to stretch out on while relaxing under the shade of a tree.
We prefer our whiskey chilled, but we don't like to add ice because it waters down the whiskey. That's why we decided to invest in a set of these On The Rocks Whiskey Stones. Simply place the set of nine soapstones in the freezer for a few hours, and throw one in your glass like you would a piece of ice. The stones chill your drink in about five minutes without melting and diluting... more
When it comes to finding the perfect host or hostess gift, we're a big fan of finding something that they normally wouldn't buy for themselves, but is also useful at the same time. If your host is an avid cook, a good bottle of balsamic vinegar will certainly take their dishes up a few notches. This selection of balsamic vinegars includes bottles to suit any budget, including flavored vinegars and fine aged vinegars.
Our favorite part of any holiday spread is the cheese selection. Who needs vegetables when you have Brie, Gorgonzola, or Gouda?

Each plate includes a different design inspired by different fromage packages. If you’re not planning a cheese course, they also make beautiful dessert... more

Durachill 6-Day Cooler offers enough room and insulation to keep all your perishables cool on ice for up to six days at temperatures up to 90 degrees. It features two wheels and a handle for easy transport around the parking lot.
One of our favorite activities in the fall is to head north to a local farm and pick apples. But aside from making homemade apple pies and strudels, we're usually at a loss for what to do with the rest of the apples. After reading Cider, Hard and Sweet: History, Traditions, and Making Your Own, we've decided to make our own cider. The book not only gives you an entertaining history of the apple,... more

We've been on a sushi kick lately and have been trying to make our own rolls at home. Our rolls haven't exactly been turning out as well as the veggie rolls from our favorite sushi restaurant, but after a few drinks of this Momokawa Ginjo Organic Sake, it really doesn't matter. The sake has layered fruit and spice aromas and flavors that give it its complex body and clean finish.
A few drops of this Italian, artisan-crafted vinegar go a long way for adding intense flavor to any dish. The Villa Manodori Dark Cherry Balsamic Vinegar, created by Massimo Bottura, Michelin-starred Chef of Osteria Francescana, combines two Modenese culinary traditions: Vignola cherries and balsamic vinegar. The result is a complex vinegar that makes a great sauce for pork, duck, bitter greens, and even ice cream. It will make every dinner feel like a special... more
We like to give gifts that people wouldn't normally buy for themselves, and caviar, for most people, is just such a gift. Indulge your host or hostess this holiday season with a tin of Petrossian Royal Transmontanous Caviar. Harvested in the USA, this caviar is a native of California and comes from farm-raised sturgeon. The nutty flavored Ossetra caviar comes in an attractive blue tin. This selection features serving sizes to suit all budgets.... more
A friend recently introduced us to agave nectar as an alternative to sweeteners such as sugar and honey. It tastes very similar to honey, but it dissolves much easier and faster, making it perfect for sweetening iced tea. We were also pleased to learn that it has a much lower glycemic index than most natural sweeteners. We've been using Madhava Agave Nectar Light. It's certified organic, 100% pure, and naturally gluten free.
Up until recently, we weren't big fans of instant oatmeal. That is, until we came across Kashi Heart To Heart Instant Oatmeal. The Golden Brown Maple flavor has the perfect amount of sweetness, and the oatmeal's creamy texture tastes just like the kind our mom used to make over the stove, and not at all like it was cooked in a microwave. It's the perfect breakfast when you're on the go.

But with or without a machine, the canister will keep your food as fresh as the day you bought it.... more

We admit we're lured in by attractive packaging, and we love the old-fashioned jug that Stonewall Kitchen's Maple Syrup comes in. But that isn't the best part of this delicious syrup. It's the real deal, tapped and bottled by a company in Maine, and will spoil you forever on other syrups. We recommend you try it on French toast made from yesterday's loaf of fresh-baked bread. You don't have to make it yourself, but... more
