As creator Serena Kerrigan says, “do it for the plot.” This party game uses classic baseball phrasing to determine the spiciness of the questions, ranging from first, second, and third base, to home run questions for good measure.

Maria Palacio’s sustainable coffee brand introduced a sweet and citrusy coffee blend this year. Jugovo coffee beans hail from the Santa Elena mountain region of Colombia, and they offer medium to light roast.

This gift would certainly bring a smile to any coffee lover’s face this holiday season.
Lastly, Gleam Eyewear and COVEDOZA are two Latina-owned brands that linked up this year to create a trendy sunglass collab. The square frames come in seven colors, and stamped phrases like “good vibes only” and “out of office” over the left lens. Complete with a pouch, these $29 sunnies would make a great surprise in a stocking this holiday season.
