Before we know it, the rush of the holiday season will be here. Start planning how you want to make your gifts stand out this year with these unique options the whole family will enjoy.
For Food-Loving Kids
Teach the kids about different cultures through food. Kalamata’s Kitchen takes readers on an adventure through Kalamata’s first day at a new school with her trusty sidekick, Al Dente, a friendly alligator. The dynamic duo is transported to a magical land of new ingredients that they are unsure they want to try. Being brave and trying new things help Kalamata and Al Dente work through their nerves and proves that being courageous and curious, they can get through anything.
For the Expecting Couple
Just because there’s a bun is in the oven doesn’t mean expecting parents have to miss out on flavorful drinks. Casamara Club delivers refreshing Italian spritz drinks without the alcohol. The alcohol-free club sodas are crafted like cocktails with layers of citrus, botanicals and a touch of real sugar for a perfectly balanced drink. At 15 calories each with only four grams of sugar, Casamara Club is the perfect after-dinner digestif.
For Parents Who Need a Morning Jolt
Give the gift of caffeinated bliss with the Around the World in 12 Days gift box from Coffee Project New York.

Promoting inclusive and sustainable coffee culture, the company prioritizes thoughtful sourcing practices and educational opportunities for people who want to pursue careers in the coffee industry. The gift box features 12 ground or whole bean coffees; an interactive, scratch-off world map that highlights the region where each coffee came from; and a card with details of the tasting notes that embody each cup of coffee.
Triple Creek Ranch, in Montana, added an Escape Room to its collection of experiences available for guests. The on-site Escape Room boasts a theme designed around the rich history of Montana, its Bitterroot Valley and the ranch’s West Fork Road, part of a stagecoach route in the late 1800s. Guests solve puzzles to find a lost treasure and the exit, and it will be available year-round, included in the ranch’s nightly rate.
The Peninsula Beverly Hills makes staying in a suite even sweeter! Guests who book one of the hotel’s elegant suites are offered complimentary use of a luxury BMW for the length of their stay. While Beverly Hills has so much to offer, having a car gives you the freedom to see even more of Southern California, whether it is driving up the Pacific Coast Highway to Malibu, or continuing on, past Santa Barbara, to Santa Ynez wine country.
Niagara Parks Power Station offers visitors a unique, interactive experience. Located on the Canadian side of the Niagara River, the once-dormant power station features all-day attractions where visitors learn how the hydropower station used the power of Niagara Falls to generate electricity.
