Keychain Flashlight from Fenix ($26.95)
If you’re looking for a compact flashlight that can light up the night, the Fenix E03R Keychain Flashlight is your answer! This compact flashlight has an output of 260 lumens and features white and red light sources, single switch activation, and a USB Type-C charging port contained in all-metal housing. It’s also IP66 rated and has a built-in 200mAh Li-polymer battery. At only 22 grams including the installed battery, you won’t feel this keychain light in your pocket or on your keys.
Wide Mouth Anti-Bottle from Vapur ($11.99)
I knew the Vapur Wide Mouth Anti-Bottle would be a hit when my husband and son started eyeing it after I unboxed it. I could see the wheels in their head turning about how convenient this flexible folding reusable bottle would be for work trips, backpacking adventures, and camping! What’s an anti-bottle? Vapur says this means reusable, foldable, attachable, freezable, sustainable convenience, all in one easy to grip, streamline bottle. They created this flexible product with active lifestyles in mind because it defies all the laws of what a water bottle “should be”. Unlike traditional rigid bottles, it lays flat when empty, and has the ability to be folded and stored where other bottles cannot. It’s also BPA free, and super easy to wash. I also love the matte finish that will patina beautifully over time!
Collapsible Drink Tumbler from Hydaway ($27.95)
Eliminate disposable cups by bringing your own collapsible drink tumbler from Hydaway. This sturdy 16 ounce cup is made of food grade silicone and features a protective foam sleeve to keep frozen drinks cold, your coffee hot, your tumbler clean, and tucked into a compact 1” stash pocket so it can go wherever you go.
Glass Flask from Ragproper ($60)
If you want a swoonworthy gift that exudes class, Ragproper’s Glass Flask is it! This single shot, 100mL size flask fits right in your pocket and is the ideal companion for a night out. The flask features gorgeous two-toned dark + tan leather that gives it a high-end feel. The easy pour window and included food-grade silicone funnel make filling your flask a breeze. The leather covering has been permanently adhered to the glass flask and is not removable though I have no idea why you’d ever want to.
Things for the Home Office
Video Conference Lighting Kit from Lume Cube ($69)
Even though we’re far enough into this work from home thing to think that we’ve mastered good lighting and improved the background of our video calls, we know that’s not true. If there’s a man in your life who could use better lighting, the Lume Cube Video Conference Lighting Kit will enhance the way you work online. Compatible with both laptops and desktops, this credit-card sized LED light provides a soft and professional atmosphere so you can do your best work. I love that this light is fully adjustable so you can change brightness to color temperature. It also has up to 14 hours of run time but if you are hard at work and need more time, simply plug the device into your computer’s power source and run the light until it’s time to take a break.

Zvox AV50 noise cancelling headphones provide great sound, advanced noise cancellation technology, and dialogue boost for less than half the price of competing models.

Ayoba Biltong isn’t your standard beef jerky! It’s crafted with the finest cuts of grass-fed beef that are spiced to perfection using our authentic South African family recipe, marinated, and air-dried for up to fourteen days. The result is a tender slice of beef with no sugar, nothing artificial, and more protein than jerky. Try the Limited Release Rosemary Truffle flavor! We loved the earth truffle and fresh rosemary that complimented the bold beef flavor.
