For the Extrovert

For that special person on your list who loves the spotlight, think about gifting our clever and tech-savvy Karaoke Bluetooth Microphone.

Featured Products: GlowStreak Disc-O LED Ball // NiteDawg LED Collar Cover // Doggie Pick Up Bags // Small Trees Santa Sacks // Drawn Stripes Tissue // Winter Dogs Gift Tags

For the Four-Legged Friend

For your very own four-legged friend, or your friend's four-legged friend, put together this unique gift that both owner and pet can enjoy.

Our GlowStreak Disc-O LED Ball features a motion-activated light that turns on with a quick bounce. Even in the dark, you can keep tossing as the toy cycles through a rainbow of colors and provides light for instant location. A grooved surface allows for easy gripping while its durable construction resists moisture.

Our NiteDawg LED Collar Cover is a great partner to the LED Ball and perfect for a collection of dog-friendly gifts. The illuminated collar cover is a durable, lightweight strip that attaches via hook-and-loop closure, so it's always a comfortable fit. Choose from two modes - flashing or constant glow - and the red LED light will provide visibility up to 1,000 feet in dark conditions. For long walks, road trips or just routine backyard play, this is a quick way to make sure pets are easy to spot.

For quick and more discreet cleanup, include our Doggie Pick Up Bags. Each zippered pouch holds two rolls of lightly fragranced waste bags and attaches easily to hard or soft leashes.


Wrapping this gift is simple and straightforward.

Wrap each gift in our Drawn Stripes Tissue Paper and place everything our Small Santa Sack. Santa Sacks are great because they still look polished without having to go through all the effort of cutting, creasing and taping traditional wrap.

Use our Vivid Wrap Winter Dog Gift Tags to complete the theme.


Featured Products: OXO Pour-Over Coffee Maker Set // Frosted Coffee Bag // Stainless Steel Coffee Scoop // Poppin Medium Accessory Slim Tray // White Gift Box // Blush & Grey Foil Trees Wrapping Paper // Silver Glitter Double Satin Ribbon // Charcoal Merry Christmas Paper Gift Tags

For the Coffee Lover

For the coffee lover, whether that's a single-origin seeker or an instant-coffee lover - this coffee-station gift is sure to be a hit.

To create the gift, purchase the recipient's favorite coffee and transfer the beans into our Frosted Coffee Bag for a festive look. Include our OXO Pour-Over Coffee Maker so they can brew at home or at work. The water tank ensures accurate coffee-to-water ratios and regulates water distribution for ideal brew time. The dual-purpose lid retains heat for perfect temperature, then serves as a drip tray with brewing's done.

Complete the gift with a Stainless Steel Coffee Scoop and our Poppin Medium Accessory Slim Tray for an instant and stylish coffee station.


To wrap this oddly shaped collection of gifts, let the tray be the stricture for the base. Use our Blush & Grey Foil Trees Wrapping Paper to wrap the coffee set and secure all the gifts together with our Silver Glitter Double Satin Ribbon and sign it with our Charcoal Merry Christmas Paper Gift Tags.
