[GIFTED] Cast Iron Bottle Openers

Most beer bottles are screwtops nowadays. You're grateful for this when you're doing some illegal drinking in a park or on a beach, but when you're home and enjoying a beer after a long, tedious day, there's something extremely satisfying about using a nice, heavy bottle opener to crack it open.  It makes you feel like you've earned it (you have).  Pick up one of these beautifully-designed Cast Iron Bottle Openers ($28 each, Omoi Zakka) and get to crackin'.

[GIFTED] Philosophical Honey 

You've got a friend who's really into the organic crap you can put in your coffee, tea, or smoothies. Agave Nectar, chia seeds, BEE POLLEN, whatever the fuck.  It all sounds weird.  But, whatever, it's her cup of tea, right?  LITERALLY, HAHAHAHAHA.  

Give her a new reason to be self-righteous every morning by gifting her this set of Philosophical Honey ($39, School of Life), which includes three honeys sourced from the birthplaces of three great Greek philosophers (Plato, Zeno, and Epicurus).  THE NECTAR OF THE GODSSSSSSS, amiright??!

[GIFTED] WoodSnap 

Anyone can get a photo printed and put it in a frame, but if you want to be UNIQUE, check out WoodSnap (Starting at $40), a company that prints your photos directly on wood.  

Why would you want this? Well, wood is beautiful, all-natural, and unique.  Printing on it creates a matte finish and adds depth to the photo by allowing the wood's natural grain to shine through.  Basically, it's a gift any hippie would love.  Get on it.

[GIFTED] Holden's Hat Necklace

Nearly everyone had to read The Catcher in the Rye in high school (unless you grew up in the Bible Belt, otherwise you stood in front of the school and burned it), but there is a certain type of person who read this classic book and loved it.  Sure, this person has typically tried to assassinate a president or a celebrity, but whaaaaaaaaaaaatever. 

Holden Caulfield basically invented the culture of "meh."  Anyone who loves this book or is just generally angsty or alienated from society will proudly wear this Holden's Hat Necklace ($30, Out of Print).  Only literary nerds will be able to identify it, and only TRUE literary nerds will be terrified when they see it and figure out the person who's wearing it is potentially armed and dangerous.

[GIFTED] 100 Questions 

There comes a point in any long-term relationship where you sit across from them and have literally nothing to say to each other.  It's not that you don't love each other, but you're far beyond the "getting to know you stage."  You've heard all the stories of his drunk college escapades.  He knows all about your awkward stage in middle school.  You both know WAY more about each other's parents than your respective parents would be comfortable with.  You're also in communication constantly, thanks to modern technology.  You're texting during meetings, you're talking on GChat all day.  By the time you get home to each other at the end of the day, you've already told them everything that happened, as it happened. 

All of this doesn't make for compelling dinner conversation.  Enter 100 Questions ($32, School of Life), a box set of questions made just for people in a relationship.  This pack doesn't include inane "What's your favorite color?" questions, but rather ones that are crafted to get beneath the surface and develop into a larger, longer conversation.  Try it out.  You've got nothing to lose... aside from that fight you'll inevitably get in when you answer one of the questions wrong.  GOOD LUCK WITH THAT.
