December 19, 2016

We’ll keep this short since you’re probably in a bit of a rush. How did the holiday shopping season slip by so quickly?! Thanksgiving came and went and the clock has been ticking extra fast ever since. Now those last few giftees on your list are hanging over your head and you’re stuck on how to find them each something that doesn’t seem like you bought it at the gas station on the way over to the party–right? Or is that just us? Anyway, we’ve put together some no-fail, last minute gifts that feel personal, fun, and not rushed at all. (We won’t say a word.)

Gifts for Him: A Huge Gift Guide for Guys

December 17, 2016

What do the phrases, “Man, this is tough.”, “Oh, brother, where to start?”, and “Dude, seriously? What am I supposed to get?” have in common? Other than opening with a nod to some hypothetical male, you’ve also probably uttered them rhetorically when wondering what in the heck to buy for an actual man in your life. We know guys run the gamut from sports fans to geeks to foodies (and many are all of the above and more at once!), so we created this list of our favorite gift guides featuring stuff for hard-to-shop-for fellas.

 

He’s a modern man, but he still spends as much time as possible living in a cave. His man cave, that is. Help him turn his personal space into a truly impressive dude domain with this collection of cool guy gifts. | See more Man Cave Must-Haves>>

 

He already owns enough ties to open his own men’s fashion store. His kitchen is loaded with gadgets that could make a professional chef swoon. His book, record, and every other collection you can think of are so complete you don’t even know where to start when it comes to finding just what he needs. Saying he’s hard-to-shop-for is an understatement, but don’t worry. We have a whole list of things we bet he doesn’t already have. | See more Gifts for Someone Who Has Everything>>

Gifts for Her:
A Long List of Stuff She’ll Love

December 13, 2016

What do women want? An age-old question so fraught that there was even a rom-com made in an attempt to answer it (in the year 2000, a simpler time). When the holiday season rolls around and our gift shopping lists are looming large, it’s a question that’s bound to resurface for many of us. Being a woman myself, I feel confident in providing the following answer: women are wholly individual human beings with unique wants, desires, interests, and feelings. Whaaaat?! Shocking, I know. Therefore, a list of gifts for women can seem kind of vague. Don’t be discouraged, though. We’ve one-upped the traditional “gifts for her” guide and have done our best to curate a list of lists, if you will, to help you find gifts to match the varied interests of your female friends and fam. Here’s hoping you find something every special lady in your life will truly love.

For the mixology maven on your list, shop our DIY kits, decor, drinking games and more. They’re all beer and booze-inspired, and sure to create a buzz. | See More Gifts for the Home Bartender>>

 

There’s a reason we say “hostess with the mostest” rather than “host with the most.” Aside from the fact that the former is cuter and includes a fun, made-up word, when it comes to party planning, ladies often take the cake. Shop our presents for the woman with an exceptional eye for the details that make any event, big or small, extra awesome. | See More Gifts for Party Planners >>

Last Minute Gifts
That Don’t Feel Last Minute

December 8, 2016

We know we’re probably not supposed to say this, being an online store that sells really cool stuff and all, but holiday shopping isn’t always entirely fun. Sometimes it’s even stressful. Maybe you planned to get out there on Black Friday, but then spent the day recovering from too much stuffing and cranberry sauce instead. Or maybe you did get a head start on the shopping, but just realized that you still have a few people on your list, and of course they’re impossible to shop for. Now the Christmas clock is ticking. But that doesn’t mean those last minute gifts won’t be thoughtful. We’re here to help with this list of gifts so cool your giftees will wonder where you’ve been hiding them for months. (Don’t worry, the secret’s safe with us.)

The labels “geek” and “nerd” are insults no more. In fact, they’re badges of honor.

As proud nerds ourselves, we are extra excited to present this round-up of great gift ideas for folks who aren’t afraid to let their geek flags fly.

They were into reclaimed wood before it was cool. They can cruise through the Craigslist “free” page and wind up with a charming vintage coffee table that would probably cost thousands brand new. Stepping foot into their not-trying-too-hard-yet-still-dripping-with-effortless-style apartment strikes visitors with envy. It’s hard having a dream home decorator for a friend, whether they do it for a living or it’s just the way they live.

Gifts Picks to Make Any Sports Fan Cheer

November 25, 2016

holiday2016-giftguide-title-sportsfan

Wherever you go, you’re likely to encounter some kind of sports enthusiast, whether it’s soccer groupies, football fans, or members of NASCAR nation. Yet, this varied demographic tends to be very misunderstood. When you’re only at the Superbowl party for the game time food, it’s easy to wave off the cheers and groans and think to yourself “calm down, it’s just a game!” But then you decide to tag along to your first live game and you start to understand the rush of being surrounded by 90,000 people in a stadium. As you witness the intense bond between fans and observe the deep rivalry between the teams, you realize that it’s not just a game, but a way of life. At the core, sports inspire dedicated players and amaze loyal fans alike. We know that the sports fan on your wish list lives for this adrenaline. We picked out a lineup of gifts that will remind him or her of that favorite pastime and feel that familiar rush all over again.
