[YOU'RE WELCOME] 10 Amazing Mother-of-the-Bride Gifts

When you’re planning your wedding, there are about 10,000 things to consider.  The big things—like the venue, the caterer, the dress, the bridal party—take up time, of course, but it’s the little things that end up taking up the majority of your time without you even realizing it.  Things like fighting with your mother over whether or not her best friend from high school that she hasn’t spoken to in 30 years really needs to be invited or figuring out what favors you’re going to give out or explaining to everyone WHY you want to have an adults-only reception take up an INSANE amount of time.

That’s why when it comes time to figuring out what gifts to give to your bridal party or your parents, you often come up short.  You wish you had more time to think about it.  You wish you had put more thought into it.  So, if you’re getting married anytime soon and don’t want to be FILLED WITH REGRET the day after your wedding, take a gander at these suggestions for amazing, thoughtful Mother-of-the-Bride gifts.

They’re all guaranteed to make her sob uncontrollably, but that’s a given, since nearly every mother is a blubbering mess on her daughter’s wedding day.

[YOU'RE WELCOME] Gifts for a Rap Obsessive

There are people who listen to rap only when they’re out for the night (ie: in da club), and there are people who are truly devoted—listening to it constantly.  They’ll debate you on the merits of East Coast rap versus West Coast rap.  They’ll school you in their knowledge of old school rappers from the late 70s and 80s.  They’ll bombard you with conspiracy theories surrounding the deaths of Tupac and Biggie.  They are surely not the type of people who turn on rap and hip-hop music when they’re pre-gaming to go out—they’re completely and totally obsessed with the entire genre of music.  Their colleagues would be shocked if they knew that they were listening to hardcore rap while filling out invoices in Excel—THAT’s how devoted they are.

That’s why we rounded up 7 gifts that will make the rap obsessive raise the roof.  Actually, no they won’t—that’s so 90′s.  Maybe they’ll make a HOVA diamond?  I don’t know.  They’ll be happy about it, for sure.

[SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION] Gifts Tina Fey & Amy Poehler Obsessives

The Golden Globes are widely regarded as everyone’s favorite, not because they’re prestigious (they’re basically a smidge above a People’s Choice Award), but because they’re not prestigious.  Nobody really cares about winning a Golden Globe so they just show up and hang out with their celebrity friends and get drunk on champagne.  Drunk celebrities equal quality television, if you ask me and anyone who watches reality television with any regularity.  Everyone is just more loose and jovial at the Golden Globes.  And helping to make it even more fun are everyone’s favorite snarktastic females—Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, back to host for a second time.

And while some people watch get their biannual dose of George Clooney, get irrationally upset when their favorite TV show doesn’t win Best Series, or wonder out loud what the hell Big Eyes is about, there are a TON of people who will tune in for the express purpose of seeing and hearing and adoring Tina and Amy.  And for those people, we present 20 gifts to indulge their obsession.

[YOU'RE WELCOME] New Year's Resolutions: Get More Sleep

Each year, we post gift guides for the trite New Year's Resolutions that start out wrapped in good intentions, only to be abandoned before the first week of February rolls around.  Resolutions always focus on trying to get better.  We've done the typical self-improvement resolutions several times over—losing weight, quitting your vices (smoking, drinking, soliciting prostitutes, etc), finally meeting someone—so this year, we're focusing on one of the most important things you can do for yourself: getting some sleep.

Sleep is literally one of the best things you can do for yourself, and yet so many people deprive themselves of it—to varying degrees of success.  It's rumored that Martha Stewart lives on only 3-4 hours of sleep a night, and while she's a very successful, rich woman, maybe she wouldn't have engaged in THE INSIDER TRADING THAT LED TO A PRISON SENTENCE if she wasn't so tired.  Okay, she probably would have, but that's not the point. 

The point is—sleep is amazing.  Most cold medication is just a way to knock you out so you can sleep.  Sleep does the real healing.  "Sleep on it" is a real psychological tactic, and it works.  Ever been super pissed at your spouse/friend/mother and you start making definitive decisions in your head about your relationship with this person?  "SHE'S DEAD TO ME," you think, and then you down a bottle of wine and go to bed and somehow you wake up and think, "Well, maybe I should call her and apologize." 

Sleep helps heal you, it helps you to not be angry, it helps you to not participate in insider trading like Martha Stewart (it's just a theory I'm working on)—SLEEP DOES ALL OF THIS.  But if you have trouble sleeping or are just a douchebag to yourself and stay up late watching TV shows you don't even like, sleep can be elusive.  But getting more sleep just might be the best resolution you've ever made.  The following five things will help you achieve your dreams (see what I did there? Sleep? DREAMS? YESSSSSSSS).

[YOU'RE WELCOME] Gifts for the New Dad, Who Just Wants to Drink

Your buddy just had a baby. This is a guy who thought he loved football and kobe beef burgers more than anything, and then he had a kid and he found out that he literally didn’t know what love was until he saw his kid for the first time. It literally changes everything. He went from a fun life of just kicking it with his wife and his friends (you) to the death march of work, child care, and a non-existent sleep schedule. Parenting is exhausting.

All work and no play (and no sleep) makes people go crazy, and nobody is more frustrated than the new dad who is just trying to get through his kid’s first year of life without causing permanent damage to the kid, getting fired from work, and getting divorced from his equally tired and frustrated wife. Tough gig.

So, we put together a gift guide for the harried new dad who just wants the semblance of his former child-free life back. Namely, a drink and some sleep.
