[GIFTED] WoodSnap 

Anyone can get a photo printed and put it in a frame, but if you want to be UNIQUE, check out WoodSnap (Starting at $40), a company that prints your photos directly on wood.  

Why would you want this? Well, wood is beautiful, all-natural, and unique.  Printing on it creates a matte finish and adds depth to the photo by allowing the wood's natural grain to shine through.  Basically, it's a gift any hippie would love.  Get on it.

[GIFTED] Editing Marathon Mug 

Every photographer has been approached by a friend or family member and asked to take photos of their kid or do their engagement photo shoot or maybe just "shoot our wedding as your gift to us?!??!"  What these people don't get is that a professional photographer is just that.  A PROFESSIONAL.  

The best way to guarantee to piss off someone who is a creative professional is to ask them to provide their services for free (that includes writers and designers).  When a professional photographer shoots a wedding, they spend countless hours after the wedding editing the photos.  You think you look that gorgeous on your own? OKAY, SURE.  

Give your photographer friend this Editing Marathon Mug ($16, Click & Blossom) so you can let them know you feel their pain, and that you'll also never contribute to it by asking them to shoot your wedding.

[GIFTED] Sticky9 Magnets

Remember when you printed out photos and put them into an album or even put them in a frame and placed them on a table in your home?  HAHAHAHA HOW QUAINT.  Nowadays, we don't print out photos.  We don't own a printer.  We don't go to CVS because we order everything online, so we don't have reason to pass by the bulky photo print station and think, "Hey, I should print out some photos from our trip to Europe."  We have all of our photos in our pockets, right?  On our phones, on our Instagram and Facebook accounts—we can look at them whenever we want.

You know what, though?  It's nice to have your favorite photos printed out and hanging around your home.  You know this.  Luckily for you, Sticky9 exists, and they take 9 of your favorite Instagram photos and turn them into magnets for only $12.  Relive your most 'grammable moments every time you go in your kitchen—that delicious birthday dinner, 14 sunset photos, photos of your dog, and the like.

[GIFTED] Holden's Hat Necklace

Nearly everyone had to read The Catcher in the Rye in high school (unless you grew up in the Bible Belt, otherwise you stood in front of the school and burned it), but there is a certain type of person who read this classic book and loved it.  Sure, this person has typically tried to assassinate a president or a celebrity, but whaaaaaaaaaaaatever. 

Holden Caulfield basically invented the culture of "meh."  Anyone who loves this book or is just generally angsty or alienated from society will proudly wear this Holden's Hat Necklace ($30, Out of Print).  Only literary nerds will be able to identify it, and only TRUE literary nerds will be terrified when they see it and figure out the person who's wearing it is potentially armed and dangerous.

[GIFTED] 100 Questions 

There comes a point in any long-term relationship where you sit across from them and have literally nothing to say to each other.  It's not that you don't love each other, but you're far beyond the "getting to know you stage."  You've heard all the stories of his drunk college escapades.  He knows all about your awkward stage in middle school.  You both know WAY more about each other's parents than your respective parents would be comfortable with.  You're also in communication constantly, thanks to modern technology.  You're texting during meetings, you're talking on GChat all day.  By the time you get home to each other at the end of the day, you've already told them everything that happened, as it happened. 

All of this doesn't make for compelling dinner conversation.  Enter 100 Questions ($32, School of Life), a box set of questions made just for people in a relationship.  This pack doesn't include inane "What's your favorite color?" questions, but rather ones that are crafted to get beneath the surface and develop into a larger, longer conversation.  Try it out.  You've got nothing to lose... aside from that fight you'll inevitably get in when you answer one of the questions wrong.  GOOD LUCK WITH THAT.
