#1 FlexWheels

Why get your friends just one item when you can gift them with an ENTIRE MONTH of access to luxury vehicles? FlexWheels is a vehicle service that recently launched in South Florida, but is looking to expand to other U.S. markets soon!

The first of its kind, FlexWheels is the only service in the U.S. that allows users to change their car multiple times a month based on their current needs and lifestyle. Hypothetically, you could drive a new Maserati Quattraporte for the work week, and just 48 hours later, switch it out for a new Land Rover Sport for a weekend trip. This is a completely B2B, B2C service. The vehicle subscription service offers a new alternative to owning or leasing a car, with an easy to use app and personalized concierge that provide a seamless switch after each use. There are multiple price points and plans available, and insurance, maintenance etc. is all included.

#4 Maker’s 46 Bourbon

Bourbon makes for a great gift because it's best enjoyed with others. The key to finding the right one to share with friends is picking something that feels familiar to their palates but is different and exciting enough that you're introducing them to something new.

Enter Maker's 46, a more complex interpretation of the iconic red wax dipped Maker's Mark bourbon that your friends have always loved, created by aging Maker's for an additional 9 weeks in a different barrel with French Oak. It's still Maker's Mark, but a deeper, richer, and spicier take on a classic.
