FOR THE GADGET-OBSESSED HOME COOK
Microplane Herb Mill
This dishwasher-safe kitchen gadget spares you the task of chopping herbs, allowing you to simply twist the handle for minced parsley, dill, cilantro, mint or sage. Plus, it prevents the blemishing and bruising often caused by chopping.
FOR THE ALWAYS HYDRATED ATHLETE
Vacuum Insulated Hydration Bottle by Thermos
Everyone who works out has — or needs! — a water bottle to stay hydrated. If you’re looking for the perfect gift for an exercise buddy, give them the new Vacuum Insulated Hydration Bottle by Thermos. Using vacuum insulation technology, this water bottle can provide superior cold retention for 12 to 18 hours! After all, research shows that cold water hydration during workouts keeps your core temperature down, potentially relieving heat-related stress on the body that leads to fatigue and other negative effects on performance. Available at Target and online, the bottle is made from BPA-free materials and comes in 18-ounce and 24-ounce sizes.
Price: $19.99 to $24.99
