[GIFTED] ECreamery Personalized Ice Cream Pints

When someone is sick (or recovering), you send flowers.  That's acceptable and nice.  A perfectly good gesture.  But think about it: what the hell is a sick person going to do with flowers? 

"Stare at them from their sick bed and think of me fondly!," you hope, but mainly, they're going to put them somewhere and never look at them or think about them again.  So why not get them something that will actually aid their recovery, like massive amounts of junk food?

The Get Well Soon Collection ($50, ECreamery) provides the convalescent with 4 pints of (fully customizable) ice cream that are delivered to their door overnight on dry ice.  ECreamery also allows you to personalize ice creams for non-sick people (imagine ice cream emblazoned with "Mom's Anti-Aging Cream").

Hey, the only two times you can eat a bunch of crap and not feel bad about it is when you're sick or when you're pregnant.  The recipient will be happy to indulge.  Trust me. 


[GIFTED] New York Food Maps

When you're visiting any iconic food city, there are a million places to get advice on where and what to eat.  Aside from the chorus of your friends telling you they had a "LIFE-CHANGING" meal at this place and "the best food evaaaaaaar" at that place, you've got the entirety of the internet, which is way too overwhelming. Eventually, you make a panicked choice and it's always hit or miss. 

For your next trip to NYC, take it offline and check out these New York Food Maps ($8 each, Flight 001), which provide analog advice on the very best doughnuts, burgers, and ramen in the City That Never Sleeps. 


[GIFTED] Gold Champagne Marshmallows

So you're planning a bridal shower for your sister.  This is stressful, not only because you it's your sister's BRIDAL SHOWER and you want it to be everything she always imagined it would be, but also because EVERYONE seems to have an opinion.  Your mom, your aunt, your grandma, your sister's friends, and even your sister, who asks you questions about minute details even though she keeps saying over and over again that she "doesn't want to be involved in the planning."   

OKAY.  Breathe.  There are a lot of elements you need to consider when planning a Bridal Shower, but paramount is the food and drinks.  Women pretend to act all dainty, but the truth is, all they care about is exactly how many truffles they'll be able to shove in their mouths and exactly much fizzy wine they'll be able to pour down their throats at this thing.  Just remember: SNACKS AND BOOZE.  BOOZE AND SNACKS.  

You'll be the hero of all Bridal Showerdom if you serve these Gold Champagne Marshmallows ($24, Wondermade), mainly because they are champagne-flavored marshmallows DIPPED IN EDIBLE GOLD.  Come on, now.  You're a champion.  


[GIFTED] Righteous Felon Jerky Care

ARTISANAL JERKY.  It's a thing.  A weird thing, yes, but a thing, no less.  When you were a kid, the only jerky that you knew about were gas station Slim Jims, and those don't even really count.  But now, you're seeing all of this fancy and EXPENSIVE jerky lining the shelves of specialty markets.  High-quality ingredients and cool packaging mean you can actually show up with jerky as a gift for someone without looking like some crazy derelict who just cruised their local 7/11 for "gifts" to bring to the party.

So, if you have a jerky afficionado in your life, introduce them to the Righteous Felon Jerky Cartel ($24), a company that says their jerky is "criminally crafted for unlawful appetites."  Each jerky is made with fresh, organic ingredients and are named after famous felons—Habanero Escobar, Chepotle Guevera, Victorious BIG, and the like.


[GIFTED] Thug Kitchen

You may have seen some of Thug Kitchen's brilliance on Facebook or Pinterest, where they serve up facts about healthy food like a motherfucking thug would (ie: "don't fuck around with some sorry-ass $10 take-out" or "sweet potatoes have a shitload of anti-oxidants and beta-carotene").  Now, the inevitable book—Thug Kitchen ($16, Amazon)—is here, and it's serving up 100 bad-ass recipes all made with the intention of eating like you give a fuck. 

It's perfect for anyone in your life who has ever been described as someone who "curses like a drunken sailor" or someone who is just a straight-up badass in the kitchen. 

Pre-order it now, it'lll be available in October.
