Our Essential Holiday Survival Guide for 2018

The holidays are almost here, and we're getting in survival mode. Yes, we love the carols, the twinkly lights, and the merry, merry spirit, but let's not pretend it can also be one big, pounding headache. With that in mind, we've put together a survival checklist to gift yourself, your friend, your mother...or whomever else you think needs it this season.

Nespresso Vertuo Coffee and Espresso Machine

Nespresso Vertuo Coffee and Espresso Machine

Our coffee intake goes way up during the holidays (frankly, we can't imagine getting through the season without three cups a day, at least). Nespresso's sleek Vertuo coffee and espresso machine delivers serious punch thanks to its high-tech brewing system, which extracts the very richest taste and texture from each capsule—whether your palate tends toward Paris Madeline or Cafe de Cuba. Bonus: the cup is made within seconds and is topped off with the brand's signature smooth crema.
