[GIFTED] Custom Portrait Stamp

When you're getting married, you send out an INCREDIBLE amount of mail.  Brides are probably the only people that are even keeping the US Postal System in business anymore.  When was the last thing you got anything in the mail besides a Save the Date or wedding invitation?  Exactly.

So, since you'll be sending literally the most mail of your LIFE, pondering why stamps cost SO MUCH, and hand addressing envelopes until your hands bleed, and the like, you might as well have some fun with it.

And what's more fun than getting a Custom Portrait Stamp ($100, Stamp Yo Face!) made out of your FACE?  Send a picture of you and your fiance to Stamp Yo Face! and they'll get cracking, making you a custom portrait that you can stamp alllllllll over your various wedding shit.

[GIFTED] EasyBreath Snorkeling Mask

Snorkeling: the scared person's way to experience the ocean.  Okay, okay, the REALLY scared person's way to experience the ocean is via a glass-bottomed boat, but seriously.  Snorkeling (as compared to scuba diving) is pretty lame.  But for whatever reason, some people LOVE snorkeling.  My guess is because it allows you check out what's under the sea without having to get certified or have to use an oxygen tank. 

Thus far, though, snorkeling gear has been pretty lackluster.  You affix this ridiculous apparatus to your face, jump in the ocean, and try not do drown as water inevitably gets into the snorkel's air hole. That's why the snorkeling afficionado's life will be CHANGED by this EasyBreath Snorkeling Mask ($60, Decathlon) that has a seal to keep water from entering.  It's space-agey shit, no doubt, and it comes in a variety of colors, making this avid snorkeler the coolest guy on the boat.

[GIFTED] Cat Portrait Pendant

So you have a friend who's obsessed with her cat.  As a cat owner, her big complaint is that she can't bring her cat anywhere.  She's right, in this regard.  Dog owners can drag their dogs anywhere: to the store, to the bar, to brunch, on a beach vacation (dogs LOVE beach vacations). 

Cats, on the other hand, don't travel well.  Show me a person who tries to put their cat on a leash and I'll show you a person with clawed up hands.  That's why your cat obsessed friend will shriek with joy when you get her this Cat Portrait Pendant ($50, Jasmin Blanc Boutique).  Send in some photos of your friend's cat and the artist will create an uncanny portrait of the cat on a porcelain pendant.  Now your friend WILL be able to take her cat everywhere she goes from now on.  Take that, dog people.

[GIFTED] Homemade Gin Kit

With the artisanal movement, everyone is becoming obsessed with homemade things.  Hey, this scarf I'm wearing might look like someone strangled a muppet and threw it around my neck, but it's HOMEMADE.  This peanut-butter-flavored mayonnaise tastes like garbage, but it was homemade by a bunch of elves who operate out of a Brooklyn storefront that looks like a bomb shelter. 

BUT, even though some aspects of the artisanal movement are a bit overwrought and ridiculous, there are a lot of good things that are homemade.  One of them, of course, is homemade booze.  You can harken back to the "fun times" of the Prohibition Era by getting one of these Homemade Gin Kits ($50) that provide you with everything you need to transform a regular old bottle of vodka into an ARTISANAL bottle of gin. 

Think about how much respect you'll get when you show up to a party with a bottle of gin that you made with your own bare hands.  What a hero you'll be.

[GIFTED] Dust & Grooves

Your mother has complained about your father's extensive record collection for years, but he continues to cling to it (and add to it).  He's got records from James Taylor, Jim Croce, Jimmy Hendrix, and the like—basically a bunch of mustachioed dudes who played the songs that defined your childhood because they defined your father's teenage years.   

That's why your dad will love Dust and Grooves ($66), a 416-page coffee table book showcasing 100+ vinyl collectors and their extensive collections. It'll show him that he's not alone in his obsession.
