[GIFTED] Sunday is God's Day T-Shirt

FOOTBALL FOOTBALL FOOTBALL.  For the guys who are obsessive football fans, it can become their religion.  In fact, it probably HAS been their religion for a long time.  Like, since their father imparted it to them.  Some people's religion is Judaism, other people's religion is football.  They have their father and/or their weird uncle to thank for that.     

And for the latter group of people, they worship at the temple of their couch and TV every Sunday during football season.  They take communion in the form of beer and nachos.  They develop Seasonal Affective Disorder when football season comes to an end. 

So if you know and love this type of guy, then pick him up this Sunday is God's Day T-Shirt ($16, Headline Shirts), which lets everyone know his real religious affliation.

[GIFTED] Style RX Pill Case

There are moments when you're reminded how fantastic life really is.  It's usually when you're drinking on a rooftop as the sun goes down, or at the birth of your child or something. 

And then there are moments when you're reminded how fucking terrible it can be.  That's usually when you or someone you care about are diagnosed with an illness.  Their life changes in an instant.  They're going to a million doctor's appointments.  They're having to take tons of medications.  It sucks.  But as they negotiate their new normal, you should check in on them and bring this Style RX Pill Case ($34, Inspired By Dawn).  If they're now having to take tons of medication, they'll appreciate having a fun, sleek cover for their boring, standard days-of-the-week pill container.

[GIFTED] Pen Orgy Pencil Case

Remember the days of AWAY MESSAGES?  In the days when Away Messages were things, there was always at least one girl you knew who would put up an away message that said, "If you were my homework I'd be doing you on my desk all night long."  If your college's library was named after some old guy named James, she'd put up suggestive Away Messages like, "Spending the entire night with James ;)"  COOL MESSAGES, ya slut.

What she was doing, of course, was trying to make an evening full of essay writing and text book reading sound fun and salacious.  We still knew she was writing an essay about the mythological significance of ravens in literature for her Intro to Lit class, though. And so, for this girl, there's no better gift than this Pen Orgy Pencil Case ($13, Brit & Co.)—even if she's not a student anymore.  Her sense of humor is still the same.  You know it.

[SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION] Adorable Halloween Costumes for Your Dog

Halloween is almost here, and if you don’t have kids and you aren’t in college, you’ve got three options: 

1. Dress up anyway!  Just because you’re 32 years old doesn’t mean you can’t have fun, RIGHT?  WRONG.  Whether you’re going out on the town or your friend’s costume party, you never can quite shake the fact that you are a 32-year-old adult in a kitten costume (or whatever you’ve decided to dress as).  You end up either drinking too much to diminish your awkwardness, or you just leave early, walking home by yourself in a costume, feeling like an idiot.

2. Stay home and watch scary movies!  This is a solid choice.  You can enjoy some pumpkin beers, watch The Shining, and eat 700 tiny candy bars with the lights off.  But even though you think back to the last Halloween where you dressed up like a fool, you can’t help but look at people’s Instagram photos and feel like you’re missing out.  FOMO, it’s happening.

3. Dress up your dog!  Ohhhhh man—you’re the type of psychopath that will wrestle their dog into a hot dog costume, aren’t you?  You’re the type of pet owner that will take your costumed dog to a doggie costume parade in the middle of town, aren’t you?

If you’re partial to option 3, then you better get clickin’ on this slideshow, that rounds up 10 adorable Halloween costumes for your dog.  Read it here.

Back in your wilder days, you would go out drinking and the next morning your lover, mother, or angry roommate would admonish you, shouting, "YOU SMELL LIKE A BAR!"
