Willow & Everett Cold Brew Coffee Maker 

The popularity of cold brew coffee has reached a fever pitch in the last few years. Once a specialty drink only available at super-fancy coffee shops, you'll now find it nearly everywhere.

You've heard (again and again) that it's better on your wallet if you make your own coffee at home, and there are huge advantages to making cold brew, specifically, at home. Chief among them is that the very nature of cold brew coffee lends itself to easy morning prep; you just have to make a big jug of it at the beginning of the week and you're good to go each morning.

Thinking about making the plunge? Check out this cold brew coffee maker from Willow & Everett. Read the rest on The Kitchn.


9 Delicious Gifts for Martini Lovers

Everyone has their go-to drink, but people who love martinis are a special kind of breed. They want something a little more special than a glass of wine or a beer, but they’re definitely not interested in whatever custom artisanal concoction that appears on the elaborate cocktail menu (you can take your elderflower and shove it, they say—it’s much too fussy for them).  In short, they want something classic, ice cold, and super-savory. Martinis check all those boxes and then some, which is why it has remained a popular drink order (just ask James Bond) amongst people from all walks of life.  Martinis also include a bunch of olives, rivaling the Bloody Mary as one of the only cocktails that comes complete with a snack (perfect when you’re tying a few on at happy hour, pre-dinner).    

Have someone in your life who loves martinis? We’ve rounded up a bunch of gifts perfect for them.  Pair any of these with a bottle of vodka or gin, and they’re guaranteed to love it (and probably incite an impromptu cocktail hour on the spot). Read it on Parade.    


Food Huggers 

If you've ever used half a lemon (read: if you cook at all), you know how annoying it can be to try to keep the unused portion fresh. Do you throw it in a plastic baggie? Or cover it in plastic wrap? You don't want the lemon to go to waste, but you also don't want to fill the garbage with unnecessary trash. Enter: this set of Food Huggers. Read the rest on The Kitchn


VonShef Mixing Bowl Set 

When it comes to building the best possible kitchen, having a high-quality mixing bowl set is essential. And while we love glass bowls for their aesthetic and their durability, there's a reason why professional chefs prefer stainless steel bowls for all of their mixing needs. Put simply, stainless steel is durable (yet lightweight) and easily washable — two things that are beyond helpful in the kitchen.

 That's why we endorse this VonShef three-piece mixing bowl set, which takes regular stainless steel mixing bowls and adds useful features to make them even better. Read the rest on The Kitchn.


10 Lunch Boxes With No Disney Characters On Them

Browse any store during back-to-school season and you'll see that most lunch boxes for kids (some 95 percent?) are emblazoned with Disney or other cartoon characters on them. Maybe you're starting to reach peak level for all things Frozen? Or maybe you're just worried your kid will move on and, come November, refuse to carry anything with Elsa or Olaf on it. (Hey, it could happen!)

That's why we've rounded up 10 adorable lunch boxes — without Disney characters on them. And maybe, just maybe, your kid will agree to use it for more than just one school year. Here's hoping. Read it on The Kitchn
