The Restoration Hardware Chillsner — on sale right now! — is one of my favorite Fab Finds of all-time! We picked up one of these during a power-shop at Restoration Hardware (our niece got a faux fur teddy bear and our best friends got Chillsners; we loaded up on tons of stocking stuffers, too!) and when our friends unwrapped it, we immediately chilled these ‘spikes’ in the freezer for not a long time, and the guys used the set of two in their beers. Total rave review!

{I just gave my husband two sets of Chillsners as his early Valentine’s Day gifts…we’re putting in the new patio this summer, so we have to have a bunch of Chillsners for everyone to use!}

Chillsners are quite awesome, so add these to your registry, or order a set for your beer enjoyment, and especially load up on these babies (at $17.49 per set of two right now!!) for your bridal party members — bridesmaids and groomsmen! — as the perfect bridal party gift, unbelievably under $20! Here’s more info on this fantastic, fabulous find:

Fab Find! Zippo Lighters for Personalized Groomsmen’s Gifts

zippo custom striped

Looking for groomsmen’s gifts they’ll really be able to use? My Fab Find is the Zippo® lighter, a classic essential that the company has evolved into an impressive array of designs, from sleek and professional polished chrome to more personality-driven designs like the ones I’ve chosen here. Now, the groomsmen’s gifts don’t have to match; you can pick the design that’s most him.

Your groomsmen will appreciate that you’ve chosen a design that suits his interests, perhaps even his humor, and they’re really going to appreciate that you got them a lighter that works, not some cheap lighter that never goes aflame when you need it to.

The Zippo® lighter makes my Fab Find list because it saved the day for us during Superstorm Sandy’s aftermath, when we had no power for a week, our grill lighter ran out of gas, and you couldn’t find any lighters or even matches in the stores, let alone D batteries for flashlights. People were actually selling lighters on the street for $100 a pop during that traumatic time. But we had my husband’s Zippo in a cabinet, and it worked. We had candlelight for the whole house. The neighbors saw the glow in our windows and asked if they could use our Zippo. So if your groomsmen ever find themselves in a natural disaster or even just your garden variety blackout, they’re going to love you even more for giving them a gift that saves the day, comforts their families, and rescues them.

Check out the many styles of Zippo® lighters here: http://www.zippo.com/lighters.aspx?c=1230

And here are some of the cool, new styles that stood out to me:

Don’t let anyone tell you that lighters are too old-world, groomsman gifts of the 1950s. Today’s modern designs bring this groomsman gift right into trend, and it’s something your guys are going to keep forever, thinking of you every time they use it…and every time it saves the day for them.

Best of all, they look way more expensive than they are. Check them out.
