Wine Dispensing Tote 

Your mom is decidedly NOT a wine snob, preferring to hobnob with the likes of Bobby Mondavi at a little place called Sutter Home.  While everyone is discussing the body and the top notes they want in their perfect glass of wine, your mother wants one thing in a wine—a lot of it. That's why she'll love to get this Wine Dispensing Tote ($130, Uncommon Goods) for Mother's Day.  It's an adorable purse to carry around, but it's always party ready with her favorite bag of Franzia embedded in the bottom with a quick-pour spout.  


Best Bloody Mary Mixes

If you're someone who loves to #brunchsohard, you know about the magical, mystical powers of Bloody Marys.  Half cocktail, half meal in a glass, Bloody Marys have the power to cure hangovers, serve as a meal stand-in, and allow you the ability to drink at 10am without getting disapproving stares from various loved ones.

But when it comes to drinking (and creating!) a good Bloody Mary, it's all about the mix.  Some too thin and watery, some so thick all the pepper and horseradish gets caught in the straw and makes it impossible to drink—if you're on the hunt for a great Bloody Mary, it really comes down to the type of mix being used.  It's the reason why no two Bloody Marys are the same.

So, we've rounded up the very best Bloody Mary mixes so you can craft your own perfect Bloody Mary at home. And while Mrs. T's and V8 can work in a pinch, we're going a bit higher brow and hipster with our mix choices. After all, what's more hipster than brunch?  Nothing (well, except maybe old timey moustaches). Read it on Parade.


Tipsy Scoop

We all have our vices, and if you're the type of person alternates between dessert and booze as your favored downfalls, you are going to FREAK OUT over Tipsy Scoop

What is it? You already know. Boozy ice cream, babies!  With flavors like Vanilla Bean Bourbon, Raspberry Limoncello Sorbet or Dark Chocolate Whiskey Salted Caramel, you'll never have to choose between getting buzzed or getting a sugar rush. 


Isle of Harris Gin 

Isle of Harris Gin looks a bottle that would wash up on the beach with a letter from a long lost love, but GET A GRIP, your long lost love has MOVED ON and is def not trying to send you a message in a bottle. There's an upside to your devastating heartbreak, though, and that's the fact that instead of being stuffed with a letter from someone you're still pining for, it's filled with delicious gin. Sweet liquor eases the pain. 

Also, Harris Distillers' logo looks exactly like Hillary Clinton's campaign logo, which makes me think/hope that Hillary has said, "fuck it," and started a distillery. Go on, girl. 


Veuve Cliq' Call 

When you first starting dating, you and your significant other couldn't IMAGINE spending Valentine's Day apart.  But then, as your relationship grew and life got busier, you realized that Valentine's Day really is just another day.  When you spend nearly every day with someone, taking a time out to celebrate your love on one specific day just because you're told you have to feels a lot like an obligation. Forced romance.... sexyyyyyyy.  

So, you and your partner decided long ago to not give into the Hallmark hysteria.  If you're feeling up to it, you can use it as an excuse to have a nice dinner together.  If you're busy, well, I'll see you tomorrow (and the next day, and the next day, and literally every day after that).  But if you aren't going to be in the same space as your beloved, a great gesture of your love would be to gift this newly-released Veuve Cliq' Call ($69, Veuve Clicquot), which features a bottle of champagne and a box that allows you to record a voice message.  It's almost like you're there.  Almost.
