[GIFTED] Ace Bottle Opener 

You probably stopped carrying around a bottle opener a few years after you graduated from college, but that doesn't mean you can't pick up this bottle opener ($20, Kikkerland) for your immature friend or your little brother who's graduating high school. 

Bonus: it's slim enough to fit in your wallet, if you're a guy or a lesbian.

[GIFTED] Banana Boys Bottle Stoppers

One day, your friend who may or may not be an alcoholic will become a fully-functioning adult that will not finish an entire bottle of wine in one sitting.  When that happens, she'll need a wine stopper. 

This Banana Boys Set ($38, Switch Modern) is one of the better ones. 

Get on it.  The wino's waiting.

[GIFTED] Owl Kitchen Timers

You know that obnoxious person.  The one that doesn't use recipes or measuring cups or timers.  You can't make Rice-a-Roni without studying the box for 45 minutes, but this bitch can just throw together a souflee without even trying.  It's the kind of effortless existence that makes you want to kill someone.

Buy these Owl Kitchen Timers ($23, Kikkerland) for anyone who is the complete opposite of that person.  The one that's a disaster in the kitchen but wants to up their cooking prowess.

Gifts for Your Mom

Think about the last phone conversation you had with your mother.  At some point, it probably involved her listening to you while you described what kind of sandwich you had for lunch. 

“Did it have lettuce on it?” she asked. 

The woman is really interested in that sandwich you had, because no one cares more about every single mundane detail of your life quite like your mother does.  Because she literally created you, she always seems to be really excited when you can accomplish even the most basic tasks. 

You tie your shoes, and she shakes her head and smiles.  My child can tie her shoes all by herself, she’s thinking, completely ignoring the fact that you’re 30 years old and that even Forrest Gump could tie his own shoes. 

Your mother cares for you 365 days a year, listening to your hopes, dreams, fears, and sandwich selections ad nauseam, so the least you can do is make a big deal about her for one day.  A good gift is important, but start with the little things: don’t get an “attitude” with her on the phone like you usually do, and for once, don’t cut her off as she rambles on about the lives of extended family members that you don’t care about. 

We all have to start somewhere.
