[GIFTED] Step Aside, Coffee T-Shirt

COFFEE.  The blessed syrup of the office workers.  Nothing will make you feel less like dying than a big cup of coffee.  You wake up and think, "I literally cannot face another day of this consistent, soul-crushing bullshit," but you have a giant-sized coffee and things don't seem so insurmountable.  That is, most of the time.  Sometimes, though, SOMETIMES, you've got to deal with some shit and coffee just ain't strong enough.  Sometimes you need to go three rounds with a bottle of vodka before you can see things clearly.   

This Step Aside, Coffee T-Shirt ($25, Thug Life) is for you and any of your fellow office workers who spend all day tapping a keyboard and dealing with morons.

[GIFTED] The Many Shoes of Carrie Bradshaw's Closet

In the pre-Girls era of the early 2000's, it's pretty safe to assume that you and your girlfriends sat around a bar and discussed which character you were in Sex and the City.  Even if you didn't watch the show.  Your friends forced you to do this.  "YOU'RE SUCH A MIRANDA!" someone would shout.  It was obnoxious. 

Obnoxiousness aside, though, Sex and the City was one of those TV shows that ended up being a cultural touchstone.  Sales of Cosmopolitans went up.  Legions of idiots moved to New York City thinking they could survive (and thrive!) on a NEWSPAPER COLUMNIST's salary.  Girls who bought shoes at Payless were suddenly pining over Manolo Blahniks.  The character of Carrie Bradshaw became a fashion icon, even though she stumbled into our lives as a grown woman wearing a goddamned tutu.

And so, it's a safe bet that any longtime fan of Sex and the City is going to go crazy over The Many Shoes of Carrie Bradshaw's Closet Poster ($29, Pop Chart Lab), which truly cements Bradshaw as a fashion icon.  The poster details 50 hand-illustrated iconic shoes from Sex and the City, categorized by designer.  Your Bradshaw/shoe-obsessed friend can hang it in her bedroom or her walk-in shoe closet that exists in her imagination.

[GIFTED] 312 Urban Pale Ale

Chicago has been dubbed as "the second city"—second, of course, to New York City. It seems like an unfair label, but New York is pretty great, so being categorized as second only to the greatest city in the US isn't so bad. Chicago is certainly better than Miami and Des Moines (and wayyyyy better than Butte).

That's why Chicago mainstay, Goose Island, has created its "312" line (312 is Chicago's area code, BTW), and today, on 3/12, it's unveiling it's 312 Urban Pale Ale. Pick up a 6-pack for your Chicago native friend and celebrate 312 day in style. Hey, it's another excuse to drink (as if you needed it).

[GIFTED] More Issues Than Vogue iPhone Case

Cancel my subscription, I'm tired of your issues.  Get it, get it?  Who doesn't love a good print publication joke?  It keeps the business alive, amiright?  No, I'm not.  IT DOESN'T MATTER.  Print is dead, jokes are not. 

This More Issues Than Vogue iPhone Case ($35, Society6) will be perfect for the drama queen in your life. The kind of girl who gets into fights with "bitches" at bars even though she's 29 years old and should've realized by now that nobody is talking about you because nobody cares about you.  The kind of girl that goes clubbing and wears high heels to things other than weddings and court hearings.

[GIFTED] The Landscape of Growing Up Print

Hindsight is always 20/20, especially when it comes to growing up.  When you're young, you feel like you know everything, and you literally have no perspective on anything because you haven't lived long enough.  Also, you haven't become jaded and apathetic yet. Ah, youth.  What a stupid, wonderful time.

In The Landscape of Growing Up Print ($32, Emily McDowell Illustrations), artist Emily McDowell turns youthful frustrations and missteps into a map with different features that will make you laugh/cry at how accurate they are and how stupid you once were, such as: 

-Mom Was Right About That Girl River

-District of Am I Gay?

-Oh My God I'm Racist Ridge

-Can't Please Everybody Ranch

This would be a great 30th birthday present or a fantastic graduation gift for a kid who has yet to realize how they'll make a visit to all of the places detailed on this map.  If they're like me, they'll make many, many visits to Can't Please Everybody Ranch.
