[GIFTED] Pantone Coasters

You’ve got a friend who’s an interior designer.  Whether she’s as obnoxious as the designers you see on Bravo or as down-to-Earth as the designers you see on HGTV (or as bold and brassy as the ladies on Designing Women), you can be sure of one thing: she spends huge amounts of her days choosing paint colors.  She’ll spend hours debating the merits of 25 different shades of white with her client.  It’s a skill.  And an exercise in patience.  That’s why she’ll appreciate getting these Pantone Coasters ($25, MoMA Design Store)—made to look like the paint chips she looks at all day, errday.

[SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION] 20 Unique Onesies for Your Friend's Baby

There’s never a time in your life when you have to care less about the clothes you’re wearing than when you’re a baby.  No one has given that memo to new moms, though, who spend tons of time looking for cute “outfits” to dress their baby in.  Sailor suits, onesies that make gross jokes about bodily functions, giant brain-crushing headbands —they’re basically living out all of their childhood fantasies by dressing up a real, live baby.  It’s fine.  New moms are allowed to do whatever they want, mainly because no one wants to approach them because they are terrifyingly sleep-deprived and could GO OFF at any moment.  But if they’re going to dress their kid up in crazy outfits, they should at least be nice ones, right?

So if you're looking for the perfect onesie to give your friend, sister, cousin, friend or co-worker's baby, read on

[GIFTED] Joan Rivers T-Shirt

You never know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone, and with Joan Rivers, that’s very, very true.  A trailblazing comedian in the 70s and 80s, she got blacklisted by Johnnie Carson and became a caricature of herself—hawking jewelry on QVC and being cruel to celebrities on the red carpet.  Rodney Dangerfield was the comedian that was always harping about respect, but it was Joan Rivers that never got the respect she deserved.  But now that she’s gone, everyone realizes it.  Get this Joan Rivers T-Shirt ($32, Urban Cricket NYC) to pay tribute to that wonderful old bag.

[GIFTED] Ike & Stella Dog Collars 

You can tell a lot about a person by the kind of collar their dog wears.  It sounds crazy, but it’s true.  Is that chihuahua wearing a golden collar nicer than your wedding ring?  The owner is a high-maintenance rich bitch.  Is that golden retriever wearing a bandana?  The owner is a hipster or a crunchy granola type.  The list could go on.  But if you put one of these Ike & Stella Collars (Starting at $50) on your dog, people won’t think you’re a privileged bitch or a hipster douche—they’ll think you have great taste.  In fact, they’re so nice and well designed that you could wear them as a bracelet.  Although, then you’d have to admit you’re wearing a dog collar on your wrist, and who wants to do that?  Just stick with keeping these on your dog.

[GIFTED] We Took to the Woods Candles 

We live in apartments and work in offices, so no one really spends anywhere near the amount of time outside that they want to.  For those who want to infuse the fresh smell of the great outdoors without actually having to go out there, these We Took to the Woods Candles ($45, United By Blue) are perfect.  With scents like “Into the Glen,” “Alpine Cottage,” and “Meet Me in the Meadow”—your house will smell like an outdoor adventure, even if the only “outdoor adventure” you go on lately is to go pick up take-out.
