Joel Spencer TV Mirror Your walls are boring. Give them a boost with one of these upcycled art pieces by local Joel Spencer and you'll never watch TV the same way again. $175-$450, Colorado River Coffee Roasters Sampler Impress the family coffee addict with a box of locally roasted beans from the Boulder City crew that supplies Vegas' favorite café, Sambalatte. The sampler comes with four 8-ounce bags of whole beans (Brazil, Sumatra, Guatemala and Ethiopia) that have been manually micro-roasted by a CRCR roastmaster. $25, Manbake Cookie Butter Former personal trainer Seth Laguna and his fiancée started Manbake in March, making protein-packed mini-muffin Beefcakes in flavors like sweet jalapeño cornbread and peppermint mocha and healthier versions of cookie and peanut butters.
