[GIFTED] Recycled Mail Sack iPad

Maybe I've just been pining over an iPad for too long that I've been unnaturally attracted to iPad cases.  MAYBE.  But take a look at this Recycled Mail Sack iPad Case ($55, Uncommon Goods)

Sure, one iPad equals one postal workers' entire paycheck, but whatever.

Hurrication, All I Ever Wanted...

WHOA, EVERYONE.  I'M BACK AND I SURVIVED THE HURRICANE.  My enemies are so PISSED.   

I did take a break from scouting out gifts these past few days to do things like buy gallons of water, fill up my bathtub, and shack up with my Hurricane Girlfriend. 

Of course, Hurricane Irene didn't really effect my little area of Brooklyn, but it was a good excuse to lay around the apartment, watch movies, and eat a whole wheel of smoked gouda cheese. 

I would post a "Things I Ate During Hurrication," but it's way too shameful and would probably result in me qualifying to be a contestant on this season of The Biggest Loser.  SO I WON'T DO IT. 

To hold you over, take a look at a couple of Hurricane-related articles I wrote over on F'd in Park Slope, including a Hurricane Playlist and a list of Things to Do If Your Power Goes Out

[GIFTED] Gowanus Furniture Co. Cutting Boards

So, you live in New York City and pay thousands and thousands of dollars for a devastatingly small apartment.  If you lived in Buffalo, you'd be living in a waterfront mansion for what you pay each month in rent, your mother likes to remind you.

That's why when you live in New York City, it's important for everything to be functional.  Your ottoman opens up and houses all of your DVDs.  Your bathtub doubles as storage for your BBQ coolers.  Your Brita pitcher not only stores drinking water, but also doubles as a basin for collecting your tears whenever it comes time to write out another rent check.  WHATEVER.

So, I love these cutting boards (starting at $90, Gowanus Furniture Co.).  They're beautiful and handmade, but they're made to fit over your sink, fit over your stove, AND be mounted on your wall when not in use if you have no cabinet space.

[GIFTED] Hester van Eeghen Wallets

If you're like me, all of your money is scattered around your purse.  You have no idea how much cash you have on you at any given moment, and whenever you try to pull out a book or magazine, dollar bills fly out and onto the subway floor.  Don't be like me, kids.

Pick up one of these awesome Diagonal Wallets ($195, Hester van Eeghen) to keep yourself together.  They come in a bunch of different colors and they all say, "Hey, pay attention to me, I am made out of bright colors."

[GIFTED] Diztrict Mix Tape Watch

The best way to endear yourself to your much older boss is to look at her, smile, and say, "Hey, can you tell me what the 70's were like?" that, and, "Can you explain to me how cassette tapes work?" 

I actually said those two things to a woman I was interning for because I was a smart ass punk and I thought it was funny. 

HEY REMEMBER THE 80'S EVERYONE?

This EOS Mixtape Watch ($165, Diztrict) is delightfully retro and amazingly badass.  I want it.
