[GIFTED] Kitchen Knives Cutting Board

There are a million knives that you can use in the kitchen.  A paring knife, a carving knife, the straight-up old reliable Chef's knife.  But when you get into the more specialty knives, you get a bit confused.  Do you really need a meat cleaver?  What the fuck is a mezzaluna?  Most home chefs will tell you that you only need a few knives, and the rest of the specialty knives are purchased by either professional chefs or douchebags who spend a ton of money on kitchen acoutrements that they never, ever use. 

This Kitchen Knives Cutting Board ($60, Pop Chart Lab) pays tribute to all of the knives there are out there, so they have presence in your kitchen without you having to buy them all.  Look at how smart you are.

[GIFTED] More Pizza T-Shirt

So you've got a friend (or sibling or boyfriend or husband) who never developed a refined palate.  Of course, that's a nice way of saying that they eat like a fucking six-year-old.  Chinese food?  No.  Sushi?  ARE YOU CRAZY?  A charming French bistro?  No thank you.  Moral of the story: you can never go to a nice restaurant because they only eat french fries and chicken fingers and pizza.  It's obnoxious.  

But, on the flip side, who's always up to go to McDonald's or Buffalo Wild Wings with you when you need to eat your feelings?  This guy.  Who's always down to order a pizza at 2am when you've had too many drinks?  That's right, this guy.  Snatch up this More Pizza T-Shirt ($24, Print Liberation) so he can wear his lack of culinary appreciation on his chest.

[SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION] Awesome Back-to-School Stuff for College Students

Ah, the lazy, hazy days of back-to-school for college students.  

You observe the college student in your life—whether it’s your kid, your brother, your niece, your cousin—and think, God, I wish I was back in college. In college, your biggest decision of the day was what bar you were going to go to that night. In college, you could arrange your own schedule so that you didn’t have to wake up until 2pm if you didn’t want to. In college, you could sign up to “study abroad,” which really meant that you got really drunk in Madrid and reinforce why Europeans hate Americans. And yes, there are up-sides to being a full-fledged adult (I just can’t think of them right now), but man—do you wish you could shove yourself inside that kid’s mini-fridge and hang out for a semester or two.

You can’t do that, of course (not unless you want to be escorted off campus by school security), but you can relive your college experience by hooking up the young college-bound with some awesome back-to-school stuff. We rounded up 24 products that should be on every kid’s back-to-school list.  Read it here

[GIFTED] Drinking Coffee Together Mug

Morning rituals are very important to the identity of a couple, mainly because morning routines are so insanely personal.  Then, you fall in love with someone, move in with them, and as the great Robin Williams said in Good Will Hunting, "we let them into our weird little worlds."  So they find out that you like to run in place for 20 minutes like a psychopath every morning or that you rise at exactly 6:47am and spend precisely 13 minutes in the shower before applying an organic facial mask.  

As you grow as a couple, you choreograph your morning routines—one of you gets the shower first while the other eats breakfast.  Fighting over bathroom time is a thing of the past because you've both accepted the routine.  This Drinking Coffee Together Mug ($17 each, Old English Co.)—a perfect anniversary or wedding gift—immortalizes how long your morning routines have been synced (it also comes in "Drinking Tea Together" if that's more your bag.  GET IT?  TEA BAGS HAHAHAHAHA).
