To the black sheep of the Internet: this gift guide is for you! While I may be a sparkly, falala-ing jingle belle this time of year, even I have grown tired of Blog Land’s shiny, monogrammed gift guides. Is it just me or do they all start to look the same after a while? Sure Kate Spade, minimergency kits, and cable-knit pom pom hats will always be a fab choice but, in my humble opinion, gift guide season has turned my blog feed into an indistinguishable sea of pretty pink lipstick and bubblegum. So today, I offer an alternative for your snarkier friends and lovers–those with a little bit of punk in their soul and just enough of a rebellious streak to endear them to your heart forever.
Sex Pistols’ Spunk, 1977 :: “I am an anarchist.”
Terrapin Moo-Hoo Chocolate Milk Stout :: Looking for a dark brew? My friends and I are absolutely in love this seasonal milk stout.
I Wear the Black Hat :: Read Husband’s review here.
The Book of Vice: Very Naughty Things (and How to Do Them) by Peter Sagal
“Coal Rice Krispy Treats” :: As a side note, these will definitely be on my holiday party table this weekend. OMGyouguys.
Holy Blues Brothers Prayer Candles :: “Our Lady of Blessed Acceleration, don’t fail me now.” – Elwood
In all seriousness, if you need more ideas, here are my favorite gift guides this year:
Joanna Goddard of A Cup of Jo always has the best ideas, and her descriptions for the recipients are perfect!
Esquire’s 10 Best Gifts for Foodies is pretty killer.
And if you want the pretty blogger land list, Carly’s “A to Z Gifts” is absolutely fabulous!
