It is BLACK FRIDAY, the absolute worst shopping day of the year, where crazy yokels stand in a line outside of Walmart at 4AM, eagerly awaiting their chance to trample their fellow man to buy a flatscreen TV on severe discount. Puts you in the holiday spirit, right? Can you hear the Nat King Cole playing?
Take my advice and STAY HOME. There are so many great things you can buy ON THE INTERNET. I will show them to you. Yes, I will show them to you in the form of our annual 12 Days of Gift Guides, where I post—you guessed it—12 gift guides chock full of ideas on what to buy your parents, your spouse, your casual work acquaintance, your estranged Aunt Susan, etc.
And because it is MY STYLE to show all of my cards and never leave you in the dark as to how I'm feeling or what I'm planning, I'm going to tell you the topics of gift guides we'll cover this year, starting Monday, and continuing until 12/24.

Subscribe to the e-newsletter in the sidebar, or check out the buttons above it, which allow you to sort by how much you want to spend, or what type of thing you're looking for.
This site is such a fucking resource around this time of year, isn't it? I've been doing this for 3 years and I'm still churning out suggestions for shit you can buy for people. Somebody give me a medal.
