Her most recent production won her a Bitter Lemon award for “Most Outrageous.” Check her out at Cowboys and Indians or in her forthcoming web series Royal Sabotage.

Alexis' Gift Guide:

1. Flowers
“Flowers are the perfect gift for any occasion. Whether you decide to go simple or ornate in your arrangement, no one can help but admire the delicacy, color, and beauty of a flower. They liven up a room and most produce a lovely scent.”

2. Makers Mark Bourbon, $25
“Not too pricey and tastes just right. It's my favorite whiskey to be served as a guest at other people’s houses. That's why I love giving it as a gift!”

3. Helmet Newton SUMO Coffee Table Book, $150
“This book can make any coffee table look fabulous and it's a great conversation piece. Newton is a genius. He flirts with danger while maintaining integrity and charm and created photography way beyond his years.”

4. Schwinn Vintage Cruiser, $150
“Riding along the beach with the wind in your hair and the sun on your back is one of the best feelings in the world. Doing this on a bicycle that's been around for over 50 years, you'll feel transported!"

5. Breville Juicer, $100 - $500
“This is a practical gift that will change someone's life. The juicer extracts the best parts of the fruits and vegetables and lets you consume four times more than you could by eating them raw. It's great for skin, weight loss and overall health. Plus, it can make a mean, all natural, Bloody Mary.”
