[GIFTED] Alcoho-Lock

Each day, you ride your bike to work with good intentions.  You want to be green, you want to save money by not paying for the subway or a cab, and you want to get some exercise.  This is all great.  Until, that is, you get sucked into happy hour drinks with your co-workers.  "I can only have one drink," you tell them.  "I have my bike."  But, of course, one drink turns into 100 drinks and you're faced with a decision.  Ride your bike drunk, or leave it there for the night.  Obviously the second option is really the only option, but when we're drunk, we make dumb decisions.  How many times have you had to convince that one friend of yours that, no, he's not sober enough to drive a car.  

Enter the Alcoho-Lock ($240), a bike lock that employs breathalyzer technology.  You blow into the lock, and if it detects alcohol, it won't unlock.  It'll also send a message to a designated contact that you're going to need a ride home.  Basically, this thing saves you from yourself.  If you're the type of person that needs regular protection from your own stupid decisions, think about purchasing it.

[GIFTED] Thanksgiving Turkey Football

 

If you're a member of a particularly athletic family, your gatherings often center around sports and fitness. Around Thanksgiving, you all run together in your town's Turkey Trot.  Your brother organizes a touch football game in the backyard after everyone's about to pass out from the mind-numbing effects of turkey's tryptophan. Your mom watches from the porch, your dad is locked into a silent competition with your brother to prove that he's still the man of the house, and your sister's new boyfriend plays a little too aggressively for everyone's collective comfort level.

This year, at Thanksgiving, present this commemorative Thanksgiving Turkey Football ($140, Leather Head Sports) to your family of competitive assholes athletes.  Declare it the Thanksgiving "game ball" and give it to each year's MVP to keep until next year.  You're like the Waltons.  Except drunker.

[GIFTED] Basil Hayden's + Quoddy Limited Edition Gift Set

It's an inevitable quirk: a guy who loves whiskey and bourbon typically has an affinity for leather.  Leather shoes, leather club chairs, leather everything.  Basil Hayden’s and Maine-based footwear brand Quoddy were thinking specifically of that guy when they decided to team up to create 100 limited edition gift sets for the upcoming holiday season.

The Basil Hayden’s + Quoddy Gift Set ($400, Huckberry) contains four leather-wrapped rocks glasses, packaged in a handstitched leather gift box that we're sure you can find another use for, and a pair of made-to-order, co-branded Basil Hayden’s + Quoddy shoes.  The bottle of Basil Hayden's is sold separately, so put on your drinking shoes and high tail it to the liquor store, will ya?

[GIFTED] Personalized Storybook Pillow

Your friend is having a baby.  Everyone is going to show up to the shower with cutesy shit.  You don't do "cutesy" very well.  When everyone is "ooohing" and "awwwwing" over a diaper bag or a stupid flowered headband, you will be silently stuffing mini cupcakes into your mouth.  It's okay.  You just have to show up with a killer gift, and a killer gift that will blow everyone's baby blankets and onesies out of the water is this Personalized Storybook Pillow ($120, Uncommon Goods).

Made to ape a children's book cover, the pillow is fully customizable and the baby's parents are listed as the authors.  Okay, maybe you can muster an "awwwww" for that.
