[GIFTED] Personalized Cutting Board


You're friends with a couple of foodies.  They met in the olive aisle of Whole Foods or at an exclusive food event.  They blow entire paychecks on dinners at fancy restaurants and are always Instagramming pictures of incredibly complicated dinners they made together at home while you're sitting on your couch munching on a Stouffer's French Bread Pizza.  They make you want to throw something.  Or maybe get around to learning how to cook one of these days.  But this isn't about YOU.  

When these two lovebirds finally get engaged (you should be stoked for the food served at their wedding, at the very least), everyone is going to buy them kitchen stuff.  They're going to be knee-deep in crockpots and Le Cruset.  You'll want to get them something more unique, and this Personalized Cutting Board ($155, Uncommon Goods) is the perfect thing for that.  When Ed and Alexis (or whatever their names are) are chopping up basil for some complicated dish you've never heard of, they'll think about how great you are (and maybe, just maybe, they'll invite you over for dinner).

[GIFTED] Intersection of Love Art

Every couple has a mental list of places that are significant to them and their coupledom.  Maybe it's that bar where you both were shitfaced at and shared a basket of curly fries and then a cab home together ON A WEEKNIGHT because you were young and wild and FREE.  Maybe it's that place he took you to for brunch that actually ended up not serving food.  Maybe it's that cabin in the woods where you took your first romantic getaway together.  These are all plot points in the great map of your relationship (GOOGLE DON'T STEAL THIS CONCEPT FOR A GOOGLE MAPS AD THAT WILL DEFINITELY MAKE ME CRY), so why not document them for posterity's sake with this Intersection of Love Art ($125, Uncommon Goods)?  

It's customizable to include two names, two important dates, and different color combinations, making it the perfect engagement, wedding, or anniversary gift.

[GIFTED] Be a Bag Tote 

People who don't have children will endlessly complain about how once people do have children, their social media feeds become an endless parade of baby pictures and posts crowdsourcing information on ultra-absorbant diapers and organic baby food.  Non-parents don't want to see any of this shit. 

Here's the thing about social media, though—what you post is a direct reflection of your life.  Remember how you used to post albums full of drunken photos in college and now you're only posting pictures of what you're eating for brunch and your dog and what buildings look like from your commute home?  Yeah.  So, it's only natural when you have a kid that you start posting pictures of the thing that is literally taking up all of your time and energy.  

And nothing says, "LOOK AT MY KID RIGHT FUCKING NOW" like this Be a Bag Tote ($420, Anya Hindmarch).  It's the analog approach to baby pictures and it's adorable.

[GIFTED] Toolbook

So you have to do something simple, like tighten a doorknob handle.  This SHOULD be a quick task.  Unfortunately for you, your screwdriver is in your tool kit which is buried somewhere incredibly inconvienient because you do not have a garage to neatly store these types of things in.

Fast-forward to you digging the tool kit out from the never-ending abyss that is the cabinet underneath your kitchen sink.  It doesn't have to be this way. 

The GENIUSES over at Strelka came up with ToolBook ($129, Strelka), a tool kit housed within a book that can be easily slipped into your bookcase for easy access. 

The ToolBook contains 4 types of screwdrivers and 6 types of wrenches.  You'll never be shoving your head under your kitchen sink, grappling in the dark for a tool kit when you just want to accomplish a simple task EVER again (except, I guess, when you're trying to find your hammer).

[GIFTED] F Troupe Saddleshoes

It's all about the accessories, amright?  You could wear the same pair of boring pants for 30 days straight but if you switch in a snazzy pair of shoes, no one will notice the pants because EVERYONE will be noticing what you have on your feet. 

These F Troupe Saddle Shoes ($150, Woodlawn) are straight up ADORABLE and are sure to get you a lot of compliments from girls you hate at the office.
