[GIFTED] The United States of Beer Poster

Being a beer geek used to be a unique thing, but nowadays, it seems like everyone is into craft beer.  No matter—the more friends of yours that start to appreciate good beer, the better beer you get to drink at their parties.

For the particularly meticulous beer lover in your life, this United States of Beer Poster ($30, 33 Books) will be the perfect gift, allowing him to track his alcoholic experiences from state to state.  What's better?  It's so well-designed that his girlfriend will allow him to hang it up in the house and not just in the garage.

[GIFTED] Super Me Backpack

Are kids still into superheroes?  Is that a thing?  Well, if they heard about the Superman curse, they might not be so eager to become him, amiright?  WRONG.  Don't be the dick who has a few drinks at Christmas and ruins a kid's formative years. 

Embrace the childhood innocence of thinking you're invincible and possess special powers to help people you care about in times of trouble.  Get him this Super Me Backpack ($40, Uncommon Goods), that includes a cape that can be unfurled at a moment's notice.

[GIFTED] Our Lady of TV Prints

Quick poll, ladies: who's your hero?  Susan B. Anthony?  Harriet Beecher Stowe?  Elizabeth Cady Stanton?  YAWN CITY (and I bet none of you would've named those gals off anyway).  Yeah, those dead ladies might have fought tirelessly (while wearing HOOP SKIRTS, probably) for the rights you take for granted now, but that's besides the point.

We've got some pretty fantastic modern lady trailblazers to look up to, but we're a bunch of idiots who look for fake role models in TV and movies instead of looking to real women who have actually gotten real shit done.  If we're going to do that, though, we might as well honor fictional women who are worthy of admiration, like our beloved Liz Lemon and Leslie Knope, via Our Lady of TV Prints ($31, Hey Monster).  Liz Lemon is hailed as "Our Lady of Having it All"—which was the ultimate goal of Lemon all of those seasons on 30 Rock—while Leslie Knope is referred to as "Our Lady of Ambition," which is self-explanatory if you've watched Knope claw her way to the top of her local government on Parks & Recreation.   

These prints will look great displayed—where else—above your TV.

[GIFTED] Escape Tumblers

 

The [upcoming] winter months are the perfect time for wistful drinking.  That is, drinking and thinking (and maybe crying?).  The winter months also tend to be the time where you experience an unsettling combination of cabin fever, wanderlust, and seasonal affective disorder.  Hence, why you're drinking a lot and thinking about quitting your job and living in the mountains.    

These Escape Tumblers ($48, Gessato) are the perfect vessel in which to imbibe your brown liquors this winter as you dream of shipping off to somewhere exotic and less terrible than your current city.

[GIFTED] Mega Calorific Canister

We all have that one person in our lives—usually a kindly old aunt—whose sole purpose on Earth is to make you indulge.  Go hang out at her house.  Are you hungry?  Here's a WHOLE LASAGNA, just for you.  You deserve it, she'll say.  You've been working so hard! (You haven't been).  Open her cabinets—they are stocked with everything you shouldn't eat—it's like the junk food aisle of your local supermarket.

When you're in her Indulgence Palace, you definitely shouldn't spend your precious free time catching up on work you've been neglecting, you should watch Mrs. Doubtfire and eat several pints of Haagen Daaz.  When she asks why you don't visit more often it is literally because your body can't handle it, but don't tell her that.

That's why this Mega Calorific Canister ($110, Jonathan Adler) is the perfect gift for her.  It'll house her various high-calorie treats and resonate with her way of life.  Live big, get big, who cares?  You hungry or what?
