Finex Grill Press + Cast Iron Pans | If you know you’ll be wined and dined by your hosts (or even your parents!), the least you can do is bring what’s needed for the perfect late night snack. Pick up the best cheddar you can find and this special cast iron grill press for midnight grilled cheeses. Need a more substantial kitchen gift? Finex’s cast iron pans are some of the most gorgeous we’ve seen (reminder: cast iron is non-toxic!).ember mug gifts

an Ember Mug – or two | Staying with your mom or best friend from home and plan on catching up for hours? Gift them an Ember Mug (or two!) to keep the coffees hot while you flip through endless old photos or chat until noon. Ember Mugs keep tea and coffee as that perfect first sip down to the last drop. Pairs well with the coffee scoop-clip above! natural popcorn popper

a popcorn maker | Staying with a movie-loving family? Bring an air popper and a bag or two of popcorn kernels.
