Need a last-minute present that packs a punch? The Nutribullet is a magical machine that deserves a spot under your tree — and it's only 42 bucks right now, down from $60. That's a 30 percent savings on the fastest way to get nutrients into your body, in the most delicious way possible. Take it from me: I use this thing all the time and it's never let me down.

I received one of these as a gift from my brother years ago and I'm officially a convert. It blends so smoothly, you can hide all of those leafy veggies under the cover of some frozen fruit and pretend you're drinking a tropical colada on a pink sandy beach while you get your vitamins and minerals. I keep bags of frozen fruit in the freezer — some store bought, some I bag myself. Those blueberries about to turn? Stick them in the freezer for your next smoothie and you've saved the day. Add your favorite liquid, a scoop of protein powder, and this nutrient packed meal will take your through both breakfast and lunch. A frozen banana, peanut butter, and cocoa powder blend kills my craving for ice cream after dinner, keeping those processed sugars at bay.

So go ahead, grab one for everyone left on your nice list.

Now, picture it: It's morning, January 1st. You, your bestie, and Auntie Lorraine (surprisingly spry for her age and sure knows how to party) are all lamenting those last two — perhaps three? — glasses of Champagne as you lay languidly on the sofa, moaning your regret. But hark! somewhere in your hungover brains the memory of that thoughtful gift — the Nutribullet— will call to you, just waiting to nurse you back to health.

Pry open those weary eyes, grab some coconut water, the leftover nuts and oranges from the Christmas eve fruit bowl and some bananas and you're on your way to feeling 100 percent with an electrolyte packed pick-me-up. This five star reviewer says: "This is an excellent small blender for smoothies or other personal blended drinks. We use ours daily... Highly recommended."

January 2nd: Screams ring out across the land as folks step on the scale for the first time post holiday season. Have no fear! You've given the golden gift of healthy shakes to all of your loved ones, making it easy for them to drop those extra lbs.

Kudos from another convert: "I could not have imagined the POWER of this blender. I had tried making green smoothies in my regular blender and had almost given up, they were disgusting... At best I managed to create a slurry of coarse fibrous greens mixed with fruit, YUCK! Then I decided to get Nutribullet. Oh am I glad I did!!! I use it EVERY SINGLE DAY. Now my favorite kitchen gadget, my green smoothies come out absolutely DELICIOUS! The Nutribullet is so powerful and it's cyclonic action works so well that the greens are absolutely destroyed, creating a truly SMOOOOOOOTH smoothie! So good I almost feel guilty drinking one everyday."

With 600 watts of blending power, this machine will cut through frozen fruit and ice with ease. The blending cup gets a cap for easy drinking at home or on the go. No extra glasses to wash and you can easily store what you can't finish. When you're done, just pop the cup in the top rack of the dishwasher and rinse the blade for super simple cleanup.

This happy user gives us the skinny on all of the great perks of this do-it-all machine: "Nutribullet exceeded my expectations in every way!! It comes with a cool quick start instruction page that allows you to use it right away! And it’s not just good for smoothies — it also makes sauces, chops nuts, and grinds granular sugar into powdered sugar. Yes, simple tasks, but I’m just thrilled with it... exactly what I wanted and needed!!"

This powerful little appliance will "change your life"— It definitely changed mine. For about 40 bucks you can change lives too, like a Super Santa.
