[GIFTED] Green: A Field Guide to Marijuana

Eyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy happy 420, losers!  It's pretty much guaranteed that you've never taken the time to appreciate the physical beauty of good old Mary Jane, but with Green: A Field Guide to Marijuana ($26, Amazon), you can, JUST IN TIME FOR 420.  Featuring gorgeous, detailed photos and background information on 170 strains, this is the definitive collection of cannabis. Put it on your coffee table and let everyone know that you're never not down to blaze.  Just put it away when your in-laws visit.

[GIFTED] Old Flames Candle

Hooking up with an ex is pretty much always a bad idea, which is interesting because SO MANY OF US do it anyway.  What can anybody say?  There's just something about old flames, right?  So if you're going to make an epic mistake, at least set the scene correctly by lighting this Old Flames Candle ($45, Owen & Fred).  Maybe the irony of the candle will make up for the awkward realization you'll both have the next morning that there was a reason why you broke up in the first place.

[GIFTED] Out of the Box: The Rise of Sneaker Culture

Everyone has their "thing" that they collect, even if they won't acknowledge that they're a collector.  If you've got more than four shot glasses, you're a shot glass collector.  If you've got more than a handful of coffee mugs, you're a coffee mug collector.  If you have more than three pairs of sneakers, you're a full-fledged sneaker collector.  Sorry, bro.  You are.  

And for the sneakerhead in your life (whether he acknowledges it or not), there's Out of the Box: The Rise of Sneaker Culture ($40, Amazon).  A painstakingly researched book that details the very first sneaker (a spiked running shoe from 1860) all the way up to modern-day kicks.

[GIFTED] Panic Attack T-Shirt

I thought I could be clever, but the very best description of this Panic Attack T-Shirt ($25, Josh Lafayette) is already in the description of the maker's website: "What do we have? ANXIETY! When do we have it? FOREVER!"  

So good.  Show your spirit for being on Team Panic Attack by wearing this shirt.  The best places to wear it might be: the airport, an important work meeting where you'll have to contribute to the presentation, or to bed, because panic attacks don't only love to show up at important public moments, but also exactly when you're trying to get some sleep.  Go team!

[GIFTED] Topography Cheese Tray 

There are people who are all Martha Stewart about entertaining, putting out mountains of hors d'oeuvres with calligraphed signs letting you know what they are, and there are people who just empty a bag of Tostitos into a bowl five minutes before company arrives.  

But regardless of where you fall on the hostess spectrum, there is nothing that delights guests like a good cheese plate, and it takes minimal effort to put one together.  Go to the cheese section of your grocery store (or specialty market if you're a hipster) and pick out a couple of hard cheeses, a couple of soft cheeses, maybe a bleu for good measure.  Get a jar of honey, a jar of raspberry jelly, and a jar of whole grain mustard if you want to get fancy.  Pick up a few boxes of crackers and that's IT.

Pile it all up on a nice tray like this Topography Cheese Tray ($33, Fishs Eddy) and you'll look like a culinary expert even if you're not.  Cheers to cheese.
