Breville Smoking Gun with Glass Cloche Bundle

The device works by releasing gentle cold smoke derived from Applewood, hickory or other woodchips. You can also pick the intensity of your infusion. The device comes with two mesh filters, AA batteries, a woodchip sample (hickory and Applewood), replacement filters and more. The woodchip accessory pack is sold separately.
Personalized Whiskey Decanter
This personalized decanter works as a gift for any spirits-lover, be it whiskey, scotch or more. The custom-engraved text can also be added to the set of glasses that come with the decanter.

Stanley Quencher H2.O FlowState Tumbler Nightfall
You’ve likely heard by now that hydration is necessary for your optimal function.

Stanley’s famous in this department having been around since 1913, and its Quencher H2.O FlowState 40-ounce tumbler is not only functional but looks the part too. It will keep your fluids cold, iced or hot for hours, and you can choose between various sizes to suit your individual needs. It features a straw opening designed to resist splashes with a seal that holds the reusable straw in place, a drink opening, and a full-cover top for added leak resistance. Additionally, it’s made with 90 per cent recycled BPA-free stainless steel, with sustainability and durability in mind.
Electric Coffee Mug Warmer
If your partner is the sort that needs that jolt of caffeine first thing in the morning, then the vessel can matter as much as what’s in it. Keeping their beverage of choice at an optimal temperature extends the enjoyment, plus it looks great too. The mug warmer features a metal heating panel and an automatic shut-off after an 8-hour period. The mug is ceramic and includes a lid to help retain heat.
