[GIFTED] Contraband Cocktails

When some people hear the word "prohibition," they automatically think of flappers and jazz and bathtub gin. Everyone was having such a great time!  The musical Chicago, right?  Well, maybe. Speakeasies were fun and all, but you know what's more fun?  Being able to go to a bar and get sauced without the fear of being arrested.  Being able to pick up a six-pack at the grocery store along with all of your food for the week.

THAT SAID, there are a ton of people who are obsessed with the Prohibition era (thanks to Leonardo DiCaprio's version of The Great Gatsby which kinda sorta sucked, amiright?), and for them, Contraband Cocktails ($16, Amazon) is the perfect gift.  They can proudly display it on their bar cart and you can stare at it the next time they insist on making you a complicated, antiquated cocktail, when all you really want is a goddamned beer. 


[GIFTED] Rise & Shine Mug

There are a billion pithy coffee mugs on the market.  Basically, if you've got an interest in anything—from Dr. Who to Nascar racing to vampire love affairs—there's a mug out there for it.  And there's ALSO a whole fringe market of mugs that treat mornings like they're the worst thing in the world, in the same way that Garfield despised Mondays.  They'll say some shit like "DON'T TALK TO ME UNTIL I HAVE MY COFFEE" like anyone wants to talk to you, anyway, Sharon.  We all know you're a BITCH in the mornings.

Yes, it might take a little caffeine to get us all moving in the mornings, but mornings ain't all that bad, right? Great the dawn, I say, and this Rise & Shine Mug ($16, Human) is the perfect companion for doing just that.

[GIFTED] Started from the Belly Onesie


One of the unique pleasures of having a new baby is being able to dress it up in whatever the hell you want, and because of that, there's no shortage of hi-larious onesies for babies to act as living billboards for their parents to amuse themselves and the people around them with.  This Started from the Belly Onesie ($27, Skreened) certainly fits the bill, and everyone will laugh and laugh and laugh and the baby wearing it will develop a complex.  

[SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION] Fun Ice Cube Trays for Summer Drinking

Picture it: you’re throwing a summertime party.  Your lawn has been mowed, your pool has been cleaned, your bathroom has been scrubbed.  You’ve got your grill fired up, Citronella candles on deck, and a Pinterest-approved tub of beers on ice.  You’re forgetting something, though.  Two words: signature cocktail.

A signature cocktail’s presence at your party does two things: 1.) lets everyone know you’re down to party and 2.) allows you to cater to your guests that don’t want to guzzle beer while preventing yourself from having to play bartender inside the whole time.

Mix something up, put it in a big bowl or pitcher, give it a cute name, and you’re done.  Wait, you want to go one step further?  You can jazz that cocktail up easily by serving it with ice made from unconventional ice molds.  Make a Negroni, serve it with anchor-shaped ice cubes and call the cocktail “Nautical by Nature.”  Make something with rum, serve it with shark fin-shaped ice cubes and call it “Shark Attack” or “EVERYONE OFF THE BEACH QUICK!!!”  The possibilities are endless.
