Gifts for History Buffs

When around a history buff, you are constantly barraged with “fun facts”about the Trail of Tears or working conditions during the Industrial Revolution, all of which are decidedly NOT FUN.  There is no Holocaust documentary on Netflix he hasn’t watched, no presidential factoid too random to mention, no book too massive or tedious to read and no museum not worthy of a visit during his next vacation.

Despite the constant eye rolling you find yourself doing and extensive bargaining with other family members about who has to sit next to him at dinner and hear him prattle on about the Louisiana Purchase, his extensive knowledge of world history has rubbed off on you no matter how hard you’ve tried not to listen to him.  Any time you know something you didn’t think you knew (something about the War of 1812 or the Cuban Missile Crisis), you can pinpoint it back to a hazy discussion you had with the history buff, probably against your will.  People around you are weirded out that you know so much about Millard Filmore, but they’re also kind of impressed. Thanks, history buff!

So, to honor this guy’s obsession with the past while helping him increase his knowledge of things that are old and irrelevant (or ARE THEY?), we’ve rounded up six gifts perfect for the history buff. Read it on Parade

Gifts for Coffee Addicts

If you are an adult, it's almost guaranteed that you're addicted to caffeine.  Being an adult (or, as the kids say it #adulting) is exhausting, and since it's not socially acceptable to drink alcohol all day long, we spend hours each day sipping on a steady stream of caffeine to keep us awake and functioning, typically in the form of coffee.  So, if we're all addicted to coffee, what's the difference between a true coffee addict and everyone else that's just trying to get through the day?

It's all about consumption, baby.  Normal people have maybe two or three cups of coffee a day.  Coffee addicts have an indeterminable amount of cups of coffee a day—and it's "indeterminable" only because coffee addicts know they shouldn't have 10 cups of coffee a day so they won't cop to it.  Normal people are okay with getting their caffeine from other sources (tea, soda, energy drinks, etc), but coffee addicts are content with coffee and only coffee, til the day their hearts explode.

So, for the jittery people in our lives, we've rounded up the best coffee-centric products out there. Read it on Parade.

10 Awesome Storage Containers for Leftovers

This time of year, leftovers tend to dominate your fridge more than usual. The holidays are partly to blame (why did you make so much stuffing?). Ditto the weather (when it's cold, we tend to cook in batches rather than sensible portions). Stews, soups, and giant holiday dinners all produce massive amounts of food for tomorrow — and the days after.

Before you surrender your fridge to stacks of poorly wrapped dishes and cheap, flimsy plastic tubs, invest in some nice storage containers. They'll keep your fridge organized (which helps you prioritize what leftovers need to be eaten first), and they'll keep leftovers fresher for longer. Check out 10 good ones on The Kitchn
