Published

Traditionally, there are two primary types of Advent calendars. One is an annual Christmas decoration—it features 24 doors with miniature ornaments inside, or perhaps partial text of the Nativity story. At the end of the Christmas season, you put it back in the attic with the rest of the holiday decorations until the following year. The other type of Advent calendar, immortalized by the film Bad Santa, has 24 chocolate candies inside.

Nowadays, things aren’t so simple. Disposable Advent calendars have gotten more and more intricate, offering 24 legitimate presents to tide you over until the big day on December 25th. Here are some of the most popular examples:

Fidgets

We have been posting quite a bit about alcoholic beverages lately, simply because enjoying a nice chilled drink is a phenomenal summer pastime. With Mother’s Day coming up this weekend, it is the perfect occasion to talk about the most maternal of all booze — wine!

Last summer we posted our take on the Secura Electric Wine Bottle Opener. In the intervening months, our thoughts in favor of the product have not changed. In fact, we are ready to up the ante. Since it is officially the season of white wine and rosé, take advantage of Secura’s gift set!

Secura Automatic Electric Wine Bottle Opener with Foil Cutter and Wine Chiller Gift Set Premium Stainless Steel Gift Set for Wine Lover — $36.99

From our previous article, you already know how the electric corkscrew works. The added value here comes via the stainless steel ice bucket. Like the margarita tumblers we teased last week, this ice bucket relies on vacuum insulation to keep your beverage at the perfect temperature.

After two years of being browbeaten to stay inside and avoid other people, summer 2022 is shaping up to be a social occasion full of picnics and garden parties. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait.

Coming Soon: Vacuum-Insulated Margarita Glasses

Published

on

2022 is shaping up to be the summer of exciting new vacation products from Better Dweller. We already told you about their inaugural beach product, the American flag beach umbrella (now available on both Walmart.com and Amazon). Now Better Dweller has another one for you: vacuum insulated margarita glasses.

Better Dweller vacuum insulated margarita glasses are coming soon!

Although vacuum-insulated tumblers are all the rage these days, somehow there are not any on the market in the shape of a margarita glass currently on the market. This is wild, considering vacuum-insulated tumblers are designed to keep beverages cold in hot weather, and there is no more refreshing hot weather beverage than a classic margarita.

Surprisingly, there are actually many vacuum-insulated martini glasses out there. But who is trying to sip gin, vermouth, and olive juice poolside? I can enjoy a good martini when the occasion calls for it (shaken not stirred, of course), but honestly in 100 degree heat the thought is a tad repulsive.

As you can see from the image above, the tumblers have been produced, packaged, and are expected to hit the market within the next month. As soon as they become available, you can expect a full post here at We Know Products!
