It’s that one holiday you don’t want to forget. Mother’s Day is coming and amid the birthdays, graduations and baby/wedding showers, it can be a tough holiday for gift buyers.

HyperChiller Coffee Mug/Brewer
Iced coffee is the perfect summer drink and the HyperChiller is a cool coffee mug that turns hot coffee into iced coffee in 60 seconds, easy to use, and there is no work, it does it all. With the HyperChiller your beverage is exposed to the equivalent of over 30 large ice cubes, but protected by two layers of food grade stainless steel — so there’s zero dilution in the process of cooling. The HyperChiller also works on beverages like wine, spirits, tea, juice, water, lemonade, sports drinks or any other non-carbonated beverage you’d like cooled quickly. The HyperChiller is ready when you are. Just leave it in your freezer, then take it out, pour your beverage in and the HyperChiller will rapidly chill it in just one minute. Mom can even use it a couple times in a row. When she’s done, just stick it back in your freezer to use again later. It’s compatible with all brewing methods and even fits directly into most full size single cup brewers. A bargain for $29.99.
