[GIFTED] The Pressure Print

Hosting Thanksgiving dinner today?  Bless your crazy little heart.  The Pressure Print ($25, The Pressure) is your personal mantra for today.  Think of how accomplished you'll feel when your loved ones are splayed out in your living room post-dinner, looking like some kind of religious cult that just made good on their suicide pact.  You'll survey the damage in the kitchen and think, "I've done it again."  

Go get 'em.

[GIFTED] Coffee & Wine Print 

If you live and work in New York City, everyone is perennially stressed out, which means they're also perennially medicated.  They can be medicated with actual medication (anti-anxiety, anti-depressant, antipasto, anti-whatever) or they can be medicated with the more socially-acceptable drugs known as alcohol, coffee, and energy drinks.  

For anyone who pounds coffee, soda, and energy drinks from the moment they wake up until the minute they leave the office and get to either a bar or restaurant or back to their apartment so they can down various alcoholic beverages, this Coffee & Wine ($32, Society6) will resonate so hard.  Buy a bunch of them and give them out to your friends, family, and cubicle-dwelling brethren.

[GIFTED] Carpe Yolo Print

There are a lot of people who live by (or pretend to live by) the phrase Carpe Diem, which, of course, means "Seize the day."  You've seen it in self-help books, you heard it uttered by the late Robin Williams in The Dead Poet's Society, and you've seen it tattooed on broody literary types.  This went on for centuries, a perfectly good (if not a little shaky) life motto.

Then, YOLO rolled around.  You only live once!  A true, but obnoxious statement.  Throw caution to the wind, dbags!  YOLO.  Soon, it was YOLO this and YOLO that.  YOLO shirts and YOLO hats (what would Dr. Seuss say about YOLO?). 

It's inevitable that the two life mottos of insufferable douchebags would be combined and immortalized with this Carpe YOLO Print ($17, Josh Lafayette).  Hang it up at work and remember that you should seize the day while throwing caution to the wind. Carpe YOLO, man.  Carpe YOLO.

[GIFTED] Let's Stay Home Print

During the long, seemingly endless winter months, you would look at your partner, who you have been amassing cabin fever with since the weather started getting chilly and say, "Man, I can't wait for summer."  Ah, yes.  In January, nothing sounds better than summer.  THAT'S when you'll actually go out and do things.  THAT'S when you'll go on trips and see friends and wear striped shirts while standing beside the ocean. 

But then summer rolls around and your calendar is perpetually booked.  Weddings, weekend getaways, happy hours, rooftop events, and other obligations mean that you're constantly out and about—enough that you've forgotten what your apartment looks like.  By August, you're burned out.  This Let's Stay Home Print ($18, Old English Co.) perfectly encapsulates your desires to just not go out for once.  Unfortunately, you're not going to get that chance until January rolls around again.  Godspeed.

[GIFTED] Map Of Our Hearts

When you fall in love with someone who didn't grow up where you did, you spend a lot of time learning about different things that you never knew existed.  For example, if you grew up in the North and are dating someone from the South, you'll be surprised to find out about things like horribly lax gun control laws and that people think that something that utilizes an entire jar of mayonaisse can still be called a salad.  OPPOSITES ATTRACT, RIGHT?

That's why the Map Of Our Hearts ($130, Uncommon Goods) will make the perfect wedding or engagement gift.  It melds two maps—one from where each person calls home—into a heart with the couples' names and a date that is meaningful to them (the day they met, their anniversary, their wedding date, etc).
