For the wine connoisseur
As a California girl, I’m always ready to enjoy a fine glass of wine or bubbly. The California Wine Club curates selections of vintages that come from some of the finest small artisan wineries in the Golden state. Depending on the wine club level you purchase, a box of your favorites will be sent monthly.

Put a little music in her life with an excellent bluetooth speaker
The House of Marley Get Together Mini Portable Bluetooth Speaker has a classy solid bamboo front face that will look stylish in any home or office. It gives exceptional sound and its rechargeable battery is good for 10 hours of playing time. It’s compatible with iPhone and Android and works wirelessly up to 45 feet from the device it is paired with. You can also connect it to your TV, record player, landline, or any other Bluetooth-enabled audio device.
It’s perfect for listening to voice calls or a webinar and, of course, music without having to wear a headset.
In addition to its solid bamboo front face, the backing is made of eco-friendly REWIND™ fabric.
I love how solid it feels and how portable it is. Another feature is that it comes with a set of 4 plugs that can fit into any outlet as well as a charging cable. So if it is taken on a trip abroad, there is no need to worry about finding an adaptor.
The House of Marley, as in Bob Marley, Get Together Mini Portable Speaker makes a wonderful gift for any music lover.
