This is my all-time favorite cheddar cheese in the world and if you have a cheese lover on your Holiday shopping list, surprise them with this delicacy! Who doesn’t love cheese in their stockings?

The first wheel of Flagship, Beecher’s signature cheese, was handcrafted just as Beecher’s Handmade Cheese opened its doors in Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market in November of 2003.

Flagship is a semi-hard cow’s milk cheese with a uniquely robust, nutty flavor. It is carefully aged for 15 months under the watchful eye of the cheesemaker to fully develop its complex flavor and ever-so-slight crumble. Outstanding on a Beecher’s Cracker!

THE FIRE WIRE 2013 Holiday Must-Have List: The Voice Activated R2-D2

This motorized replica of the headstrong little “droid” from the iconic Star Wars films ($200) responds to voice commands, navigates rooms and hallways, and makes any home feel like it has been transported to a galaxy far, far away. R2 obeys more than 40 voice commands (“Turn around!,” “Move forward two units!”) and he plays games like tag, using an infrared sensor to search for people in a room. His sensor helps him follow behind you, or it can be set to detect motion, turning R2 into a room sentry that sounds an alarm when a secured area is invaded. R2’s lights, swiveling dome top, and distinctive happy and sad sounds faithfully mimic the real thing, right down to his occasional “bad mood.” (A simple command of, “R2, behave yourself!” snaps him out of it.) R2 can also replay sounds and dialog from Star Wars movies, answer yes-or-no questions, and dance while playing the famed cantina music. Requires four AA batteries and four D batteries. Minor assembly required. Ages 8 and up. 15″ H x 7 1/2″ W x 10 1/2″ L. (6 lbs.)

$450 Metal Starbucks Gift Cards Sell Out In 6 Minutes

qNojxIiH-1080-1440

Starbucks collaborated with Gilt.com this holiday season to offer its customers the exclusive new Limited Edition Metal Starbucks Card on Friday, December 6, 2013 at noon ET at www.gilt.com/starbucksrose.

The hand-assembled card featured an artisan rose base metal with rose colored coating, laser-etched with traditional Starbucks lettering.

The card retailed for $450 and came preloaded with $400 to use at Starbucks, plus automatic My Starbucks Rewards Gold-level status (a free birthday treat and 15% off coupon at StarbucksStore.com, free refills on iced or brewed coffee and tea, special offers and coupons, and a free drink or food item with every 12 stars).

After the sale for the cards went live at noon Friday on Gilt.com, the site’s hits per minute beat those of Cyber Monday by almost 2.5 times. Only 1,000 cards were available. The cards sold out six minutes.

Within 30 minutes, more than 11,000 people had tried to get on a wait-list for the card. Some who nabbed the even more exclusive golden cards are already re-selling them on eBay for as much as $1,675.00.
