1. For the gadget enthusiast and road warrior—Revolights

Unlike traditional bike lights, which project light in only one direction, Revolights cast 360 degrees of illumination, making it much easier for others to see the rider. This improves safety tremendously: most nighttime bike-car collisions are due to inadequate side visibility.

Adam Pettler MBA 11, Co-founder and CFO

2. A stocking stuffer for the foodies—Potter’s Crackers

Potter’s whole grain, handmade, crackers are produced with California milled, whole-wheat flour and local butter in nearby Sacramento. Most of the ingredients come from small, local farms. Potter’s offers five year-round varieties of crackers and produces seasonal flavors throughout the year that reflect what is available in the local farmers’ markets.

I wanted to shed my humble origins and become Corporate Barbie.
