2. Wine Aerator

Does your loved one prefer sipping on fine wines? Stock their stuffing with a wine aerator! Wine aerators elevate the experience of drinking wine by oxygenating the liquid. This intensifies the flavor, aroma, and mouthfeel. Help your friend who loves to host show off to friends and family with this unique and thoughtful gift.

Want to create a wine themed gift for your vino lover? Pair the wine aerator with the BrüMate Uncork’d XL! Your sommelier friend can pour half a bottle of their perfectly aerated wine into this 14oz, fully insulated and leak proof tumbler. Worried about sticker shock? Fear not! These two gifts combined still fall under $40!

3. Bubble Tea Kit

Bubble Tea is growing in popularity, but it can get pricey in stores! If you know a bubble tea addict, fuel their fire with a DIY bubble tea kit. If you’re lucky, maybe they’ll make you some too!

4. Quality Olive Oil

For someone special who loves getting crafty in the kitchen, consider giving them a higher end olive oil. A quality olive oil will have a fuller taste, and can even come in a variety of flavors. Pair with some crusty bread and cheese for a tasty charcuterie gift.

5. Coffee Tumbler

Do you have a friend who is always on the go? Or a family member who cherishes their morning espresso? A high quality coffee tumbler is an ideal under $40 gift for someone who enjoys hot beverages on their morning commute (it’s cupholder friendly!) or during their evening walk.

The BrüMate Toddy 22oz is just that! Featuring a 100% leak proof lid and handle, this mug will keep your loved one’s delicious drinks fresh from the first sip to the last. Make this gift even more meaningful by personalizing it with icons, initials, words, and logos for an extra cost.

6. Weighted Blanket

One of the best ways to enjoy the holiday season is cuddled up under a blanket. Weighted blankets are guaranteed to make any movie night, cup of hot cocoa, or fireplace chat better. If you know someone who loves to cozy up on cooler weather days, the weighted blanket may be exactly what they need to elevate their snuggle experience.

7. Insulated Can Cooler

Remind your beach buddy of the summer sun and ice-cold drinks by gifting them the BrüMate Hopsulator Slim. This can cooler can fit any 12oz slim can, and features a non-slip base, perfect for poolside relaxing. With our Push-Lock™ Technology, cans can easily be inserted and removed without needing to unscrew the gasket. Plus, the Slim is cup holder friendly. Slide the cooler into the pocket of your folding chair at a tailgate, or your pontoon’s cup holders.

8. Themed Care Package

Care packages are a creative way to personalize a gift, especially when you’re balling on a budget. Grab a cute basket or bin and pack it with candy or baked goods, gift cards to stores and restaurants, and other fun small gifts like candles and self-care items.

Pro tip: Create a theme for your care package to make it even more unique. From travel to color coordination, movies to favorite beverages, the options are endless when it comes to choosing a theme that your bestie would love.

9. Novelty Socks

We’re not talking about your average socks from Grandma. Novelty socks can be hilarious and thoughtful gifts when you’re trying to stay on track with your budget. From game-day themes to guitars, cats to ninjas, there is always a pair of themed novelty socks for anyone. Throw the socks in your care package, or gift them solo. Either way, they’re bound to bring a smile to anyone’s face!

10. Insulated Liquor Canteen

For someone who loves making cocktails on the go, a liquor canteen or flask may be their next favorite gift. Perfect for game days, hikes, or birthday parties, the BrüMate Liquor Canteen can hold up 8oz of your favorite spirits.
