I have found the perfect, unique, locally made product that will be sure to make someone on your gift list smile! The Cap-A-Cooz is such a fun gift idea; you start to forget that it is actually a product that is useful as well. Plus, right now they have a Christmas sale on the online store where you can receive 20% OFF!

I spotted the Cap-A-Cooz at the Festival of Trees a few weeks ago and was immediately drawn to the bright colors and durability of the products. These aren’t just any regular “huggers” or “coozies” for your drinks!They are very sustainable, made 100% in the USA, and have a bonus surprise on the bottom – a bottle cap opener! The creators of this product – Adam Sebastian, Matthew Mayse, and Tripp Regan are all Winston-Salem residents, and claimed that when they sketched out the idea for this product, they were sure there had to be something else out there like it, but this was the first. They have a full US patent on the Cap-A-Cooz as well. I love their slogan , “It keeps the drinks cold, the caps popping, so everything else keeps rocking. Hilarious!

OK, so here is the best part – the Cap-A-Cooz can be custom ordered with your own logo or design. I immediately was all about designing a Triad Moms on Main Cap-A-Cooz. (Keep your eye out for these. You might be able to win one for yourself!) Then I thought about my brother-in-law who is getting married next year and how fun these would be to get personalized for their wedding or rehearsal dinner. My friend who was with me at the Festival of Trees immediately thought about the fact that they have a large family who meets at her parents’ lake house numerous times throughout the year. She wanted to design a “Smith Family” lake house design and keep the Cap-A-Cooz at the lake throughout the year. Another friend of mine told me that she was given a Cap-A-Cooz last year at the Steeplechase race and loved it!

I also think these would be fun for tailgating, birthday parties or baby showers. “Beer huggers at baby showers????” you ask! Don’t forget that not everyone uses their coozie for beer, people! Some of us like that Diet Coke to stay cold as well! I even thought about how my extended family gets together every Christmas. There are over thirty of us, and we are all descendants of the Hess Family. I am thinking about how awesome it would be to have our Cap-a-Cooz made with a custom “Hess Fest” design on each!

Of course you do not have to have these custom made. You can purchase a single Cap-A-Cooz with the Cap-A-Cooz logo on it, which makes a fabulous stocking stuffer. (Regularly $5.99, but don’t forget about the sale going on right now!) The more Cap-A-Cooz you order, the lower your price will be. They come in five different colors that can be purchased in a multi color 6-packer. Having multiple colors is great for cookouts and small get-togethers so everyone can tell their drinks apart! Take a look at the website at www.capacooz.com and get your holiday orders in ASAP!

Keep in mind that these are great for any time of year. We would love for you to SUPPORT LOCAL!!  This blog will remain up in our shopping category, so you won’t forget about this gift idea later on! Who on your list will be the recipient of a Cap-A-Cooz this year?
