[GIFTED] Luggage Tag Thank You Cards

Despite the fact that I am almost always brazen, brusque, and grumpy, I am a big, big, big believer in Thank You cards.  My desk drawer is full of them, and they allow me to say sincere, heartfelt things to people in writing that I would never be able to say out loud. 

These cards from Girl in Gear Studio are the coolest ones I've seen in a long time, and you get a set of 12 for under $20.

[GIFTED] Walk-Up Press Cards

Listen up, David After the Dentist: life doesn't get more real than when you live in New York City.  Or maybe when you're in jail.  I've seen Oz, I know what crazy shit goes down in there. 

Local Brooklyn design company Walk-Up Press has created a "local" series that depicts what it's like to live in Brooklyn: cockroaches, rats, and water towers. 

Pretty accurate.

[GIFTED] Jack Spade/Kate Spade

I was reading GQ on the subway this morning and came upon a new bag from Jack Spade for $136, which looked suspiciously like the Kate Spade bag that I had just bought for $255.

Yes, the husband and wife team behind Jack Spade and Kate Spade are copying each other's looks, but I can't even be mad about it.

Normally, I would lean towards Jack Spade's clean and simple looks (I have this bag), but I love the Magazine Tote I bought from Kate, mainly because it looks nice without being overly girly like everything else she makes. 

She's usually all like, "This bag has 12,000 seashells hot-glued to it because what woman doesn't love the beach LOL!"

SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP, Kate Spade. 

Make more simple magazine totes, less flowery bullshit.

[GIFTED] Exploding Dog Prints

Exploding Dog is the brainchild of artist Sam Brown, where readers submit titles and he creates drawings based on them.  This is a project that's 10 years in the making, and what continually blows my mind about this site is how titles submitted by strangers connect together so seamlessly.  If you read them in succession, you'd think that they were written by one person. 

They're quirky and odd as they are hopeful and quietly adorable.

And prints are on sale at his shop for under $75. 

More photos after the jump.

No jokes, no sarcastic comments. 

I've fallen in love with this iPod/iPhone docking station ($133, Woodtec).
