Calling all coffee drinkers! This electric kettle from Fellow is the perfect addition to a java lover's morning routine.

Candy (and food in general) makes a great holiday gift for someone you don't know alllll that well but still want to make feel special during the season (like a boss or coworker). Enter: This chic bento box from high-end candy company Sugarfina. It's stocked with three of their bestselling bites (Champagne Bears, Champagne Bubbles, and Bubbly Bears) and comes in a package that's so pretty, you don't even need to wrap it.
