Top 10 Holiday Gifts


One of GAYOT's Top 10 Holiday Gifts, the Genesis Home Soda Maker turns tap water into sparkling water

What better gift to give than the gift of convenience? The Genesis by SodaStream will give your loved one homemade soda with a few presses of a button. Once assembled — which is very easy, we might add — the Genesis turns tap water into sparkling water in less than 30 seconds. For the soda lover in your life, you will also be giving the gift of health. The regular flavors contain no high-fructose corn syrup, and the diet flavors are sweetened with Splenda instead of aspartame. There are more than 30 flavors available, so gifting early could make for some delicious holiday party cocktail mixers, including traditional flavors such as cola and lemon-lime, as well as SodaStream's own fruit creations of orange-mango, diet pink grapefruit and cranberry-raspberry.

Price: $99
