@sweetsbyjnguyen Hot Cocoa Bombs

I think these Hot Cocoa Bombs are going to be a hit this holiday season! They are such beautiful & tasty little treats. They remind me of a set of ornaments! @sweetsbyjnguyen is making holiday and winter themed cocoa bombs and they come packaged in the perfect gift box. Just pour your choice of liquid (I chose coconut milk) and watch the balls of chocolate pop open and reveal mini marshmallows. There are several different flavors to choose from like milk chocolate, white chocolate, strawberries & cream, french vanilla cappuccino, etc. Just shoot a DM on Instagram to @sweetsbyjnguyen to see the menu and place an order! Or you can shoot her an email at sweetsbyjnguyen@gmail.com. Orders can be picked up in Blaine.

Holiday Boka Kit

I’ve been using Boka for about two months now and I’m never going back! Never did my breath smell so good. I think the Boka Rasana Tongue Cleaner and the Electric Sonic Powered Toothbrush has made the biggest difference. I had no idea the Twin Cities was home to a company like this. I love their clean design and the fact that they’re vegan and cruelty-free. Conveniently, the electric brush is waterproof so I brush in the shower. It gently vibrates to tell me when to switch sides during my 2-minute brushing. Plus, the charge lasts forever. I also like the Coco Ginger Toothpaste for Harlan because it’s fluoride free. Their Holiday Boka Kit has $40 worth of free gifts so be sure to add that to the gift list! Use code: girlof10000lakes for 15% off!

5 | Peetz Hookum Spoon Lure
6 | XTorch Solar-Powered Flashlight
7 | MOOCOR Underwater Fishing Camera
8 | Crescent Moon Eva Foam Snowshoes
9 | Raptor Series OFFGRID Voyageur Rooftop Tent with Ladder

Paddle North’s Portager has been a game-changer for fishing and outdoor recreation this year. The Portager is an inflatable paddle board that only weighs 21 lbs.

Also pictured with the SUP is my Eagle Claw Pack-It Telescopic Spinning Rod. It is portable and has helped me catch countless fish including lake trout, walleye, crappies, bluegills, perch, and northerns.

XTorch joins my list of favorite gear making an impact. It’s a solar powered flashlight, lantern, and backup cell phone charger. ​Besides its practical off-the-grid functions, Minnesota-based founders Gene and Keidy are changing the world through giving. For every XTorch purchased, they donate an XTorch flashlight or XTorch solar panel to children who don’t have access to electricity around the world. Ultimately, this leads to better education, productivity, reduced fear and a greater sense of security, reduced dangers from kerosene fumes, etc. I’ll be doing a giveaway with XTorch on Instagram very soon, so stay tuned!

Gunflint Winter Sampler Getaway

I guarantee the Gunflint Winter Sampler will not disappoint. In fact, it’ll be one of the most magical, memorable trips you’ve ever taken with your family. Depending on how many guests you have, you’ll get a full day of either guided ice fishing, a half day snowmobile tour, a choice of the dog sled experience or a BWCA trek (you can’t go wrong with either), three night accommodations with a cabin, all meals, ski and snowshoe equipment, and naturalist activities. Dog sledding was a top highlight for me last winter. I highly recommend it! These pups are the sweetest!

DSG Outerwear Avid and Arctic Appeal Ice Fishing Jacket & Bibs

This is DSG’s Arctic Appeal Ice Fishing Jacket and Bib. This is what I wore all of last year for ice fishing and it was a serious gamechanger. I could fish for much longer periods of time outdoors, didn’t get cold or wet from the elements, and felt super comfortable running around from fish house to flag and setting up all the ice fishing equipment. Both the Arctic Appeal and the latest Avid Ice Fishing Suit are available at Fleet Farm!

Duke Cannon Frothy the Beer Man Gift Set

Duke Cannon is my go-to for men’s gifts (and even women’s gifts for that matter) because who doesn’t love a Big Ass Brick of Soap? The Minneapolis-based company has the most creative soaps including the three included in their Frothy the Beer Man Gift Set which come in Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA (woodsy citrus), Buffalo Trace bourbon (oak barrel), and Old Milwaukee (sandalwood) scents. I also use the activated charcoal aka Big Ass Lump of Coal soap myself. New this year, the Proper Holiday Cologne Twin Pack is inspired by nature (woodsy and aquatic). And if you have a bearded fellow in your life, The Beard that Stole Christmas Gift Set comes with the Best Damn Beard Wash and two different beard oils.
