[GIFTED] Great Lakes Prints

There are ocean people and there are lake people.  My girlfriend is an ocean person because she grew up in Florida.  Lakes freak her out, which I can understand, because there is something categorically creepy about fresh water.  But guess what's not found in lakes?  SHARKS.  STING RAYS.  KILLER WHALES.  The list goes on.  I would MUCH rather have a trout swimming by me than having to do the "Sting Ray Shuffle" every time I want to go into the Gulf of Mexico. 

These Great Lakes Prints ($32, HarryCanary) pay tribute to the lake people.  After all, the ocean people have got Jimmy Buffett.

[GIFTED] Mad Men Kit Print 

Ohhhhh my goddddd Mad Men.  Although the season finale on Sunday night wasn't as dramatic as I thought (I really thought Megan was going to get axed, ala Sharon Tate), it did leave a lot of unanswered questions.  Is Megan dunzo with their marriage?  Is Ted really moving to California?  Will Don go back to Sterling Cooper?  Will Bob Benson end up killing everyone while smiling and whistling "Singin' in the Rain?"  Personally, my favorite theory is this one, an incredibly convincing contention that Don Draper is actually infamous 1970's plane hijacker DB Cooper. 

A show as fantastic as this one deserves a fitting tribute, and this Mad Men Kit ($29, Curioos) that carefully parcels out all of the stuff that makes up the Mad Men world—a glass of booze, an old timey telephone, a box of cigarettes, a typewriter—is perfect for it.

[GIFTED] Delicious City Prints

Nothing captures a city’s past, present, and future like the local food scene. Signature foods—wings in Buffalo, po’ boys in New Orleans, crab cakes in Baltimore—provide hometown comfort for those who’ve moved away, as well as a reason for tourists to make a pilgrimage there. And if you think it’s ridiculous for someone to travel somewhere simply to eat an authentic Philly cheesesteak or slice of New York City pizza, think again.

Delicious City Prints has tapped into this gastronomic hometown boosting by creating city-specific art prints (available for $36) that pay homage to each city’s signature dishes. Twenty cities are represented—Austin, Boston, Chicago, Seattle, Buffalo and more. Are you ready for some Loganberry? Muffulettas? Yes. And are you ready to explain what the hell those things are? You were born ready.

[GIFTED] New York City Airports Print

If you travel a lot, you have a weird allegiance to your home airport, even though you've spent an inordinate amount of time waiting for delayed flights there.  Your affinity towards your home airport is like your affinity towards that shitty burger place in your hometown.  It's not that great, you've had a few bad experiences there, but it's familiar, you know exactly what you'll get, and you know where the bathroom is. 

This New York City Airports Print ($30, Pilot & Captain) shows off your hometown airport pride.

[GIFTED] Chicago Hot Dog Print

 

Whether you live in Chicago or you just have an affinity for hot dogs, this Chicago Hot Dog Print ($18, DryWell) breaks down the anatomy of this delicious ballpark treat.  This would look great in the following locations:

1. A mancave that's heavy up on baseball memorabilia

2. Your kitchen

3. Your hot dog stand (there's always money in the hot dog stand??)

Enjoy, losers.
