The Keurigs are awesome. They can quickly brew coffee when you need to pick me up, the coffee doesn’t taste like groundwater, and cleanup is easy. They aren’t perfect for the environment, however, unless you get one of those reusable K-Cup pods, and can look a bit bland on the kitchen counter. This limited edition Jonathan Adler K-Mini coffee maker, however, can brew a tasty cup of java while being exceptionally stylish. Normally $ 100, it costs half of Best Buy, it’s cheaper than the regular K-Mini. Any coffee-loving dad with an eye for design will appreciate this coffee maker, now at just $ 50.

Combine that with a crystalline, retractable mic and you’ll be the envy of game night. This is one of the biggest markdowns we’ve seen for this premium helmet.
