[GIFTED] Zombie Bunny Lollipop

So your brother's kind of a weirdo.  He's really into unwatchable experimental movies.  He's got a dark sense of humor, but not in the socially acceptable "dark" sense of humor, but the real dark sense of humor that makes conversation stop and makes everyone look for the nearest exit. 

You've become used to his weird quirks and are fairly certain he's not going to murder anyone anytime soon (at least you THINK so.  I mean, even John Wayne Gacy had a sister), so for Easter, you've decided to give him something he'll like this year.  Like a zombie-themed Easter basket featuring several of these Zombie Bunny Lollipops ($9, ThinkGeek).  Your mother will be outraged, but your brother will be delighted.  It's a good strategy.  Keep the weirdos happy.

[GIFTED] Malvi Marshmallows

Peeps are all well and good, but if the theme of your Easter basket is artisinal (it should be), you really need to check out Malvi Marshmallows.  Why?  Because rather than just enjoying a marshamallow, you can enjoy a freakin' MARSHMALLOW SANDWICH.  That's right—Malvi takes homemade marshmallows in flavors like Raspberry Hibiscus, Spiked Espresso, Vanilla Salted Caramel, and Mint Chocolate and crams them between shortbread cookies.  

Your Easter basket, Easter brunch, or Easter anything will be eternally grateful.  Malvi's sampler pack goes for just $25 and includes 20 sandwiches in 5 different flavors.  Happy Easter, gluttons.

[GIFTED] Chocolate Robin's Eggs

Easter is about a week away, but you don't want to go all out with a giant basket filled with enough candy to give the recipient early onset Diabetes.  You want your gift to be Easter-y, but understated.  You also don't want to spend a ton of money on it (way to go, cheapskate).

Look no further than these Chocolate Robin's Eggs ($8, Terrain).  They're classic Easter candy served in a nice glass mason jar, which makes you look classy and whimsical and Pinterest-y.  You know how much white women love their mason jars, right?  Of course you do.

[GIFTED] Sriracha Popcorn

If you are a hot sauce person, you tend to find "traditional" snacks boring.  Smart Food Popcorn?  Yeah, right.  Tastes like you're chewing on some old packing peanuts. 

If you want to be kicked in the face with FLAVOR, check out this Sriracha Popcorn (Popcorn, Indiana).  Sure, it's spicy.  But it's anything but bland.  Buy it for yourself, buy it for your favorite Sriracha devotee.  And if you REALLY love Sriracha, check out this Sriracha Lover's guide I put together.  You're weclome.

[YOU'RE WELCOME] 8 Best Beers for St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day might be the drinking-est holiday of the year, mainly because there aren't any of the distractions that come with other holidays.  On Halloween, you may have made the mistake of choosing an unwieldy costume which makes it harder for you to consume alcohol and/or use the bathroom.  On Thanksgiving, you have to focus on the food otherwise your Aunt Ruth will shoot you daggers (everyone must praise her cooking skills).  On Christmas, you've got to put down your cocktail to open presents.  But none of these things apply on St. Patrick's Day.  All you have to do is show up at a bar wearing a green t-shirt and you are good to go.  

BUT, if you're going to be drinking on St. Patrick's Day (god bless your little alcoholic heart), steer clear of the green beer.  Sure, it's "fun," but remember that it's just cheap beer with green food coloring in it.  Nothing more, nothing less. 

Want to stand out from the pack of hard-drinking, fist-pumping bros?  Stay away from the drink specials hawking green beer, Guinness, and Jameson.  Any bar worth anything is going to have some craft beers with an Irish lilt to them.  Be on the look-out for 8 of our favorites.
