[GIFTED] Fantastical Fictive Beers Poster 

Real beer is great, but there's always a certain charm to the names of fake beers drank by our favorite characters in movies, on TV, and in books. Homer Simpson's beloved Duff, the Butter Beer in Harry Potter, Romulan Ale from Star Trek, and even Hank Schrader's home-brewed Schraderbrau from Breaking Bad are all showcased here, in this Fantastical Fictive Beers Poster ($29, Pop Chart Lab).  It'll look fantastic (see what I did there?) in any beer geek or pop culture nerd's apartment.

[GIFTED] Box of Chocolates Soaps

Valentine's Day is coming up (as I've stated about 10 million times in the blog posts appearing here the past 2 weeks), and as manufactured holidays go, it's one of the most indulgent.  You're supposed to drink champagne and eat boxes of chocolate and go for a lobster dinner.  All of this would be fine, I guess, but you and your partner have made a pact: you have to lose weight.  You've been eating nothing but salmon and spinach for months. You've been trudging to the gym instead of watching Netflix.  You've been making pizza crusts out of cauliflower, for God's sakes.  CAULIFLOWER.

That's why you don't want to throw away all of your hard work on Valentine's Day just because Hallmark says you should.  Fuck that.  Instead, buy your beloved this Box of Chocolates Soaps ($28, Uncommon Goods). Coming in Amber Chocolate, Chocolate Bar, Fudge Brownie, and Raspberry Drizzle, they look good enough to eat, but they're NOT, and that's the whole point.  Your lover can enjoy an indulgent bath after the gym accompanied by these soaps.  HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY, YOUR MUSCLES ARE SORE AND YOU'RE SO, SO TIRED.

[GIFTED] Conversation Hearts Macarons

French things have always been associated with romance (even SURRENDERING LOL—no seriously, surrendering can be romantic, remember that Sarah McLachlan song? Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet surrenderrrrrrrrrrr), and at some point in the past five years, macarons have become the preferred treat of any kinda dumb/kinda fancy lady.  

You show up with a box of macarons on Valentine's Day, and you'll be in like flynn.  BUT, if you want to take it a step further and straight-up WIN Valentine's Day, get these Conversation Hearts Macarons ($45, Williams-Sonoma), which take the novelty of the classic Conversation Hearts you'd see on Valentine's Day but put them on something that actually tastes good, like delicious macarons. Enjoy. Or, as the French say, enjoiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii.

[GIFTED] Java Jive Coffee Liqueur Making Kit 

Everyone is moderately addicted to coffee, but there's always one person who takes it to the extreme.  They always order the strongest, blackest, double shot whatever whenever they're in a coffee shop.  They're perpetually on a "coffee run."  If you're traveling with them, they're always dragging on a quest to find "good coffee."  At night, of course, they transfer their caffeine addiction to alcohol, but they can only drink so many vodka and Red Bulls before their heart explodes.      

This Java Jive Coffee Liqueur Making Kit ($35, Uncommon Goods) will combine the caffeine addict's love of coffee and love of getting drunk.  What a perfect gift.  The only gift more perfect would be a bottle of Bailey's, but where's the fun in that?

[GIFTED] I am Freaking Cold Sweatshirt

Okay, okay, okay—maybe the Juno Blizzard/Snowpocalypse/Snowtorius BIG was a bust for New Yorkers, but it doesn't matter.  We still got 6 inches of snow.  It's still fucking freezing out there.  So, this I am Freaking Cold Sweatshirt ($49, Thug Life Shirts) is the perfect garb for ya snow days, for the rest of this winter and for winters to come.  Now get back to your regularly scheduled Netflix and frozen pizza.
