[SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION] 15 Best Beanies & Skull Caps for Winter

You’ve spent years convincing yourself that you’re tough and that you don’t need things like hats and scarves to keep you warm during winter. Newsflash: you’re not tough. It’s cold out there, and you need to protect yourself. You know what’s cool about having your ears freeze off? Nothing.

It’s time to invest in a nice beanie or skull cap—they’re classic, simple, and if you buy one, it’ll last forever. You can wear it anywhere—to brunch on Saturday, to the ski slopes in Colorado, or when you’re running from business meeting to business meeting in the gray, freezing months of January and February. Check out 15 of our favorites on HiConsumption.


[12 DAYS OF GIFT GUIDES] Gifts for the Whiskey Enthusiast 

Some people are into wine.  Some people are into beer.  Some people don't drink and are into telling you about it constantly.  And then, some people are into whiskey.  It used to be that only guys like your leathery old uncles were into whiskey.  The type of men that drove trucks, smoked a pack of cigarettes a day, and actually took bars up on their beer and shot special.  They weren't into whiskey like today's guys are.  They didn't care about the oak barrels it was aged in or where it was made.  They cared about whether it was cheap and whether it got the job done ("the job," of course, was to get them shitfaced).

But the new crop of guys who are into whiskey like the good millennials they are.  That means they want to know everything about what they're drinking—where it was made, how much it was aged, and everything in between.  Their minds catalogue all of the different types of whiskey they've tried—what they liked, what they didn't like.  What gave them a killer hangover and what was gentle on them even after drinking a lot of it. What should be taken in shot form and what should be sipped.  

They covet really expensive bottles and only break them out really amazing days and really shitty days.  So this holiday season, while you might not be shelling out $150 for his favorite bottle of whiskey, you can get the whiskey enthusiast something that he's sure to love.  If you're lucky, he might love it enough to break out his favorite bottle and share a glass with you.

[GIFTED] Thanksgiving Turkey Football


If you're a member of a particularly athletic family, your gatherings often center around sports and fitness. Around Thanksgiving, you all run together in your town's Turkey Trot.  Your brother organizes a touch football game in the backyard after everyone's about to pass out from the mind-numbing effects of turkey's tryptophan. Your mom watches from the porch, your dad is locked into a silent competition with your brother to prove that he's still the man of the house, and your sister's new boyfriend plays a little too aggressively for everyone's collective comfort level.

This year, at Thanksgiving, present this commemorative Thanksgiving Turkey Football ($140, Leather Head Sports) to your family of competitive assholes athletes.  Declare it the Thanksgiving "game ball" and give it to each year's MVP to keep until next year.  You're like the Waltons.  Except drunker.
