With Christmas shopping season in full swing I figured I’d throw out a few suggestions for other people’s holiday shopping while successfully procrastinating doing my own. So here they are, in no particular order, your Christmas, Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, Kwanza, Decemberween, New Year or Yak Shaving Day shopping suggestions from Life After Coffee:

USB Missile Launcher

  • USB Missile Launcher – While this list is in no particular order, this little piece of office ballistics is my top pick. Check out my review of it and don’t miss the other cool stuff at KlearGear.com
  • Pink Flamingos – Now possibly endangered this may be the last year you can get these little plastic beauties. I know there are a couple under my tree (actually in it right now.)
  • An Electric Chicken Cup – This rare gem may have to be a do-it-yourself, but I bet no one on your list has one!
  • And now the coffee related gifts:
    AnimalCoffee Luwak

  • Kopi Luwak Coffee Gift Boxes – Fantastic coffee and a great gift box. Probably the most unique coffee related gift available.
  • AeroPress Coffee Maker – A great coffee and espresso maker. Perfect for small batches and single cups. Check out my review.
  • Easy Linux Commands – Okay, so this is a shameless plug for my book, but since it just came out it’s unlikely anyone on your list already has it.

Most of all, have a fun, happy and safe holiday season!

iBreathWell I certainly wasn’t beating down the door for the Nike + iPod Sport Kit but now DavidSteel.com has come up with an iPod accessory I could really use: an Alcohol Breathalyzer with Integrated FM Wireless Transmitter!

Yup, that’s right, soon for just $79 you will be able to pull out your iPod and check your blood alcohol content, then you can decide if it’s time to drive home to “Born to be Wild” or just mellow out and sober up to some Jim Morrison (ok, maybe someone else.)

Dubbed the iBreath, the device powers itself off the iPod battery, supports the full FM band (88.1 – 107.9) and claims accuracy within 0.01% blood alcohol content. I want one, don’t you?

Thanks to Will for sending this on to me.

CoffeeReview.comStan left an excellent comment on my review of the Toddy cold brew system and mentioned the site CoffeeReview.com.

They’ve got reviews of hundreds of different coffees and some great reference on coffee. Check it out.

Thanks Stan for a great comment!

Don Burleson sent me a link to this gizmodo article on the beer dispensing robot in the movie below.

While it’s certainly a cool toy I can’t see why the guys at Gizmodo are so impressed. For starters it’s slow, second it looks like it only does cans (let’s face it, if you like beer enough to have this robot you drink it out of bottles), but most disappointingly it looks quite messy!

So while I look forward to more commercially available automated drink makers/servers this robot just doesn’t stack up to the Bar Monkey.

Fill rocks glass with

  • Crushed ice

Add

  • 1.5 ounce vodka
  • 1.5 ounce Coffee Liquor

Another great classic rocks drink.
