[GIFTED] Paddle Ball Sets 

 

Hey, Forrest Gump.  It's Springtime, so you're feeling a little more sprightly lately.  You're actually leaving the office to get a coffee rather than sitting planted in your desk chair for the entire day because you're afraid to go outside and into the cold.  You're feeling like you want to go get a beer with friends after work rather than rush home and read browse Buzzfeed on your phone under a mountain of blankets. In short, you're in a playful mood.

And you know what will make you feel MORE playful?  Actually playing a [low-intensity] physical game with these Paddle Ball Sets ($29, Izola).  They're brightly-colored and fun.  Throw 'em in your suitcase when you're going on a weekend trip and turn a regular old table into a makeshift ping pong table.

[GIFTED] Dolly Parton Coin Purse

It's hard to be a Southerner living in the North.  Everyone is so abrupt.  Everyone is moving so quickly.  People hear your accent and assume you can't read.  But a lot of things have come out of the South (well, not SLAVERY)—namely, good whiskey and country music (and the ensuing delicious drama created by country musicians). 

And who's a bigger country music character than Dolly Parton?  Everyone knows her because of her big hair, ridiculous sequined outfits, and GIANT BOOBS, but girlfriend is a SURVIVOR.  She has been performing since the 1950's.  She has been married ONCE, happily, for nearly 50 years (bet you didn't see that one coming).  She wrote the song "I Will Always Love You," so you have Dolly to thank for the blockbuster shitfest version from Whitney Houston on The Bodyguard Soundtrack.  Elvis once wanted to buy the rights to that song and she told him NO because he wanted to own the rights.  This proves that Dolly is a true badass as well as a financial wizard, which is why her face is rightfully emblazoned on this Dolly Parton Coin Purse ($26, Bourbon & Boots).  You know she made a KILLING off of that one song.  And others. What a role model.

[GIFTED] Personalized Rolling Pin

If you ever bake cookies, they're usually the Toll House kind, and it's usually because something happened and you need to eat your feelings immediately.  There's no need to decorate them all fancy-like, the whole batch is going directly into your face, probably before they're even officially done because you can't wait 9 goddamned minutes for them to cook.

But not for your friend.  No, she is a cookie-making machine.  She couldn't cook dinner to save her life, but when it comes to baked goods, she's basically a Keebler Elf.  Her cookies are always so intricately designed that you actually hesistate before you eat them.  This, of course, is a big deal for you, the human version of Cookie Monster.

Give your cookie-bakin' friend the best gift you could—this Personalized Rolling Pin ($57, Valek Rolling Pins) that will help her produce cookies that are actually stamped with her name.  How awesome is that?

[GIFTED] Toolbook

So you have to do something simple, like tighten a doorknob handle.  This SHOULD be a quick task.  Unfortunately for you, your screwdriver is in your tool kit which is buried somewhere incredibly inconvienient because you do not have a garage to neatly store these types of things in.

Fast-forward to you digging the tool kit out from the never-ending abyss that is the cabinet underneath your kitchen sink.  It doesn't have to be this way. 

The GENIUSES over at Strelka came up with ToolBook ($129, Strelka), a tool kit housed within a book that can be easily slipped into your bookcase for easy access. 

The ToolBook contains 4 types of screwdrivers and 6 types of wrenches.  You'll never be shoving your head under your kitchen sink, grappling in the dark for a tool kit when you just want to accomplish a simple task EVER again (except, I guess, when you're trying to find your hammer).

[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.
