[GIFTED] Leather iPhone Case Set 

Your father gets mad at you for your "frivolous lifestyle"—you spend too much on travel or booze or fancy dinners.  YOU SHOULD BE SAVING FOR A HOUSE—or as Grampa Simpson once suggested, "new storm windows"—not enjoying the limited free time you have in this stupid life where all we do is work and sleep.

It's a generational thing, so you're never going to win.  His generation didn't have the lust for travel that ours does.  His generation still thinks that you should be BUYING PROPERTY IMMEDIATELY, ignoring the fact that buying a house or apartment in any major US city is nearly impossible unless you're an investment banker.

Since you'll never convince him that living a life that looks different than the one he lived isn't "frivolous" as much as it's just "different," you might as well just keep pissing him off.  Book that trip.  Buy something ridiculous, like an iPhone case that costs almost $100.  Allow us to suggest this one from Native Union. Crafted out of fine leather that will patina well as you knock your phone around, and it comes with a stripey charging cable so you'll never get yours confused with someone else's.  Sorry, dad.

[GIFTED] Bad Bitches Pillow

What better way to say "Happy Valentine's Day" to your favorite badass than with this Bad Bitches Pillow ($68, Furbish Studio)?  She'll proudly display it in her home and when her mom visits she'll pretend that she doesn't like it even though she secretly does.  Mission accomplished.

[GIFTED] Carlsberg Beer Beauty Set 

How do you make your boozy, beer obsessed brother (or boyfriend) get into grooming when he rejects manscaping and uses the word "metrosexual" pejoratively?  You put BEER in his grooming products.  The people behind Carlsberg (the beer) have created the Carlsberg Beer Beauty Set ($70) that uses its beer in the shampoo, conditioner, and lotion.  What are the health benefits of beer, exactly?  Who cares?  You do?  Shut UP.

[GIFTED] Need More Weekends Framed Print

As your summer comes to a close, you start to reflect on what you managed to cram into three months.  All of the backyard BBQs, all of the weddings, all of the long weekend trips to somewhere near the ocean—it was a lot.  But was it enough?  No, it's never enough.  Even if you were a champion of summer, you always have one weekend trip that you wanted to take but couldn't end up swinging it.    

Let's just say it.  We need more free time and less days at the office.  We need more drinks with old friends and less drinks with clients.  We need to spend less Saturdays and Sundays doing chores and running errands because we're too exhausted and overworked to squeeze them into a Tuesday night.  We need more weekends.  

This should be our credo. Hang this Need More Weekends Framed Print ($55, Furbish Studio) in your workspace to remind yourself.

[GIFTED] The Botanist Gin

If you have someone in your life who is an actual botanist, or just someone who is really, really into gardening, the The Botanist Gin will be the most appropos gift you can give to them.  

Crafted on the Isle of Islay in Scotland, the gin features 22—count 'em, 22—wild botanicals found locally on the island (hence the name).  Pretend you give a shit about plants and maybe they'll let you drink some of their gin with them.  It's a win/win situation.
