[GIFTED] Puzzle Dinner Tray

Remember puzzles?  They were what children played with before they turned into video game-playing drones who shoot up their high schools.  My six-year-old cousin has a Blackberry, so it's very doubtful that she would be impressed by this puzzle dinner tray ($58, Switch Modern), but you never know, right?

[GIFTED] Blow Up Bamboo Basket

True confessions: I always thought that when I got my own apartment that I would have super-modern decor.  

Sharp angles!  Glass everything!  Black everything!  Back like my heart!

Unfortunately, when it comes to design, I am finding that I have an inner hippie just begging to get out (probably because she wants some weed. Just kidding, I did that once and it was STUPID). 

Check out this Blow Up Bamboo Basket ($112, Switch Modern), which is about as close to wanting to hug a tree as I'll ever come.  This is a big deal for someone who considers staying at the Hampton Inn as camping.

[GIFTED] Fish Hotel

Everyone has that weird uncle who has the Red Lobster-sized aquarium in their home.  It's trashy and ridiculous, mainly because fish are the most pointless pets in the world.  Here's a tip: when choosing an animal companion, don't pick something that you flush down the toilet when it dies.

But, if they're going to continue to waste their time with a fish, at least pick up an interesting home for them.  This Fish Hotel by Teddy Luong ($30, Unica Home) should do the trick.

[GIFTED] Ultra-thin Clock

There are people in life who are exceedingly laid-back.  So laid back that they don't wear a watch, because time really doesn't matter to them.  Your sister is not that person. 

Only psychopaths feel guilty for "sleeping in" until 9AM on a Saturday.  She is a psychopath. 

Indulge her inability to relax with this clock from Mxyplyzyk ($45).

[ETSY] Dear Colleen Dishtowels

UK designer Dear Colleen has these "Dishes I'd Rather Be Doing" towels with five celebrity heartthrobs drawn on them.  They're funny and clever and only $5 a piece.  My only objection is that I have to disagree with the choice of Owen Wilson.  Mainly because that dude looks like he got bashed in the face with a frying pan.  Heartthrob, my ass.
