Finding the perfect gift can be frustrating. Waiting in long holiday lines and exiting the mall parking lots can even turn you into the Grinch. Here are a few ideas that may help you look for that perfect gift and save you some money this holiday season. Instead of fumbling around the stores, you can save some time to enjoy your hot cocoa.

MEN:

Better TV Viewing Slanted Beer Mug — $12
Nothing says “Sunday Night Football” better than a cold beer in your hand this holiday season. But isn’t it annoying how every time you take a sip of your beer you lose an inch or two from the TV? This clear beer mug is able to hold a pint of your preference and is designed specifically for one to enjoy their beer and their TV time. This gift will allow the men in your life to have the best of both worlds. If you’re feeling a bit generous, why not put some mini liquor bottles inside?

Burt’s Bees Essential Kit $9.99

The texture of the products are not too greasy like other brands, so this would be a perfect gift for someone who is low-maintenance.
