[GIFTED] Dolly Parton Coin Purse

It's hard to be a Southerner living in the North.  Everyone is so abrupt.  Everyone is moving so quickly.  People hear your accent and assume you can't read.  But a lot of things have come out of the South (well, not SLAVERY)—namely, good whiskey and country music (and the ensuing delicious drama created by country musicians). 

And who's a bigger country music character than Dolly Parton?  Everyone knows her because of her big hair, ridiculous sequined outfits, and GIANT BOOBS, but girlfriend is a SURVIVOR.  She has been performing since the 1950's.  She has been married ONCE, happily, for nearly 50 years (bet you didn't see that one coming).  She wrote the song "I Will Always Love You," so you have Dolly to thank for the blockbuster shitfest version from Whitney Houston on The Bodyguard Soundtrack.  Elvis once wanted to buy the rights to that song and she told him NO because he wanted to own the rights.  This proves that Dolly is a true badass as well as a financial wizard, which is why her face is rightfully emblazoned on this Dolly Parton Coin Purse ($26, Bourbon & Boots).  You know she made a KILLING off of that one song.  And others. What a role model.

[GIFTED] Personalized Paper Dolls

For the person who has everything, here's a gift they're guaranteed NOT to have: custom paper dolls that look like them and their entire family.  Sound awesome?  A little creepy?  Yes and YES.  

Anyone that is a little bookish and weird and appreciates design and tiny paper things (this is basically the definition of twee, if that's a thing anymore) will FLIP out over these personalized paper dolls ($35, Jordan Grace Owens)

How does it work?  You send photos of the people you want to turn into paper dolls (they even do pets, if you want to descend that far into madness), and that's it.  You can even choose the outfit you want the Little Jackie Paper version of yourself to wear.

[GIFTED] The Many Shoes of Carrie Bradshaw's Closet

In the pre-Girls era of the early 2000's, it's pretty safe to assume that you and your girlfriends sat around a bar and discussed which character you were in Sex and the City.  Even if you didn't watch the show.  Your friends forced you to do this.  "YOU'RE SUCH A MIRANDA!" someone would shout.  It was obnoxious. 

Obnoxiousness aside, though, Sex and the City was one of those TV shows that ended up being a cultural touchstone.  Sales of Cosmopolitans went up.  Legions of idiots moved to New York City thinking they could survive (and thrive!) on a NEWSPAPER COLUMNIST's salary.  Girls who bought shoes at Payless were suddenly pining over Manolo Blahniks.  The character of Carrie Bradshaw became a fashion icon, even though she stumbled into our lives as a grown woman wearing a goddamned tutu.

And so, it's a safe bet that any longtime fan of Sex and the City is going to go crazy over The Many Shoes of Carrie Bradshaw's Closet Poster ($29, Pop Chart Lab), which truly cements Bradshaw as a fashion icon.  The poster details 50 hand-illustrated iconic shoes from Sex and the City, categorized by designer.  Your Bradshaw/shoe-obsessed friend can hang it in her bedroom or her walk-in shoe closet that exists in her imagination.

[GIFTED] More Issues Than Vogue iPhone Case

Cancel my subscription, I'm tired of your issues.  Get it, get it?  Who doesn't love a good print publication joke?  It keeps the business alive, amiright?  No, I'm not.  IT DOESN'T MATTER.  Print is dead, jokes are not. 

This More Issues Than Vogue iPhone Case ($35, Society6) will be perfect for the drama queen in your life. The kind of girl who gets into fights with "bitches" at bars even though she's 29 years old and should've realized by now that nobody is talking about you because nobody cares about you.  The kind of girl that goes clubbing and wears high heels to things other than weddings and court hearings.

[GIFTED] The Landscape of Growing Up Print

Hindsight is always 20/20, especially when it comes to growing up.  When you're young, you feel like you know everything, and you literally have no perspective on anything because you haven't lived long enough.  Also, you haven't become jaded and apathetic yet. Ah, youth.  What a stupid, wonderful time.

In The Landscape of Growing Up Print ($32, Emily McDowell Illustrations), artist Emily McDowell turns youthful frustrations and missteps into a map with different features that will make you laugh/cry at how accurate they are and how stupid you once were, such as: 

-Mom Was Right About That Girl River

-District of Am I Gay?

-Oh My God I'm Racist Ridge

-Can't Please Everybody Ranch

This would be a great 30th birthday present or a fantastic graduation gift for a kid who has yet to realize how they'll make a visit to all of the places detailed on this map.  If they're like me, they'll make many, many visits to Can't Please Everybody Ranch.
