[GIFTED] East Coast/West Coast T-Shirts

The rivalry between the East Coast and the West Coast has existed way before Biggie and Tupac ever made it a thing.  West Coasters think East Coasters are perpetual downers—uptight, scarf-wearing, pseudo-intellectuals who are too busy trying to work to have time to LIVE.  East Coasters think West Coasters are idiots—too-relaxed, surfboard-owning, plastic surgery-having, empty-headed star fuckers. 

Forget rappers—the East Coast is Matthew Broderick, the West Coast is Matthew McConaughey.  BUT—stereotypes exist for a reason, and there's just as much truth as there is non-truths in both stances.  So, whatever side you're on, express your pride with these East Coast and West Coast T-Shirts ($24 each, Print Liberation).  Just don't SHOOT ANYONE while wearing these.  Let's all just relax for a second, all right?

[GIFTED] Cube Coasters

Listen, there's not a lot to say about these Cube Coasters ($40, Koromiko) except that they're probably too cool for your apartment.  Your apartment is not minimalistic chic.  BUT, if you're going to ignore that like you usually do, buy 'em.  They're modern and felt and look cool.  You could also buy them as a housewarming gift, if you want to be the person who shows up to a party with coasters instead of alcohol (which is what people really want).

[GIFTED] Leather Beer Growler Cover

When you were in college, your favorite nights at the bars was when some beer company was doing a promotion.  The Miller Light Girls or Bud Light Girls or whatever-cheap-beer-girls would swarm around, giving you free worthless branded merchandise if you were drinking their brand of beer.  A keychain, a beaded necklace, an XXL t-shirt (a size that will "fit" everyone!), or perhaps the most interactive—a branded beer koozie.  

Because you were drunk, you thought it would be funny to immediately truss your beer up in the free koozie you just received.  Funny?  Sort of.  But back then, you were drinking like a monster and you were drinking watery beer, so you finished each bottle in approximately 5 minutes.  Then, you were forced with the task of giving your beer an "outfit change" every time you traded in an empty bottle for a full one. "IT'S SO ANNOYING WHEN YOUR BEER WEARS CLOTHES" you would yell.     

You threw away all of your free beer merch long ago, of course, when you moved into a tiny apartment where space is a commodity and you simply didn't have room for 32 oversized beer t-shirts that you never wear and 15 beer koozies that you literally have never used.  Your taste in beer got more refined once you were able to afford more expensive beer and you weren't drinking 12 of them per night.  You go to the local bottle shop and buy growlers of craft beer that you take to a friend's house.  You have two beers and go home because you are an ADULT and you can't drink like you used to.  You love buying growlers because it makes you feel more hip than the guy that still shows up to a party with a six-pack of Corona.  That's why you deserve this Leather Beer Growler Cover ($80, Pedal Happy). Now that you're older, it's not annoying when your beer wears clothes.  It's a statement.

[GIFTED] The World is Your Oyster Globe

You have a cousin who is graduating from college.  They're still all cute and smiley because their dreams haven't been crushed by the weight of the world yet.  

They'll gleefully tell you about all of the things they're going to do.  "Tell me about your five year plan, again" you'll drunkenly say at their graduation party.  It's cute and also sad because you remember when you were that way.  So much hope, so much ENERGY.  Now, your only "dream" involves a weekend where you meld into your couch and don't have to talk to anyone or answer one work email.

Don't piss on their happiness yet.  They'll figure it out soon enough, and join you at the next family party—close to the drink table—to bitch about work and their landlord and stupid kids.  In the meantime, get them this The World is Your Oyster Globe ($215, Wild & Free Designs).  It'll look great on their desk in their apartment until they smash it one night when they realize that someone with half their talent is making twice their salary.
