—Onyx ( OnyxYouth.com ): The Onyx Youth Magnet Mask is a skin-care product that acts uniquely: It's an anti aging mask uses the power of magnets to lift dirt and oils from your pores with a magnet, leaving behind rich serums to fight aging. Moreover, the serum is made up of Korean volcanic scoria, essential oils and an amino-acid complex—making for better skin through science.

—Faber-Castell ( FaberCastell.com ): One of the world's oldest and largest manufacturers of fine writing and professional art supplies, Faber-Castell has new items to offer. Chief among them is The Pen of the Year ( 2018 ) the Imperium Romanum, which is available in platinum or titanium as a fountain pen or rollerball. All writing instruments are individually numbered and presented in a highly polished black wooden case—which makes for quite a special pen. Also, there's the Karlbox, named after fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, who has collaborated with Faber-Castell to create a limited edition set of high-end art supplies.

—To'ak Chocolate ( toakchocolate.com ): To'ak is the world's most expensive chocolate ( $355 for its bar of dark chocolate that's from Ecuador ). Why the price? It's made from the oldest and rarest variety of cacao on earth. Any chocolate lover worth his/her/their salt will be dying to try this.

—Firefly 15th-anniversary box set ( www.foxconnect.com ): Everyone seems to be taking in all things Star Wars, but the space-related TV series Firefly's 15th-anniversary box set is now available, courtesy of Fox Home Entertainment. Viewers can relive the complete cult-favorite TV series—including three unaired episodes and an extensive slate of revealing extras.

—Owl's Brew Holiday Cocktail Kit ( TheOwlsBrew.com/shop-our-products/holidaycocktailkit.html ): Now this is a really cool idea. Each Owl's Brew craft cocktail mixer gift set contains three eight-ounce tea-based cocktail mixers: Mulling Spices, Salted Caramel Toddy and Grapefruit Collins. And making the cocktails is simple: Just choose your liquor and mix two parts booze to one part Owl's Brew. You'll be impressing everyone with your bar skills.
