[GIFTED] Morning People Mug

There are two kinds of people: the kind of people who wake up happy and greet the day with enthusiasm, and the kind of people who don't really snap into things until around 11am.  These are the people who boast Garfield-levels of Monday morning-hating and are those who have gotten broken up with because of their grumbly, snappish nature in the early mornings.

"DON'T TALK TO ME UNTIL I'VE HAD MY COFFEE," they warn, as if that's a sensible thing for an adult with a job to say out loud to anyone.

The thing with people who aren't "morning people," though, is that they're inevitably night owls (it could be argued that the reason why they're not morning people is because they stay up so late at night—sleep deprivation makes everyone pissy).  They might not be a party in the AM, but you can bet your ass they're a barrel of laughs in the PM.

For the type of people who are just grouches 'round the clock, though, this Morning People Mug ($16, Plasticland) is perfect.  They don't like morning people.  Or mornings.  Or people.  Enjoy your coffee!


Cat Coin Purse

Cat obsessives will shriek with joy when you gift them with this Cat Coin Purse ($3, Choies), which they can stuff with their cash and credit cards and look forward to getting endless compliments at either the Cat Cafe they frequent or the pet store they spend too much money at (organic food and extra cat toys ain't cheap).   


[GIFTED] Vintage Game Set

You'll be on a family vacation and it'll only be a matter of time before someone older starts complaining about how all of the kids in the room are glued to their phones or tablets.  "Back in my day, kids played outside!" they'll say.  Of course, we all know that the phrase "back in my day..." is just code for "I'm old and I'm afraid that the world is leaving me behind."  And although you know the merits of kids staring into a screen all day are dubious at best, you're just happy the devices are keeping those damn kids quiet so you can enjoy your few days of vacation time in peace. 

But after the first few days of vacation, you get really relaxed.  Your phone ends up in the other room and you don't even care.  Your baseline alcohol level is healthy and you're officially ready to interact with the kids.  You instate a "no devices" rule and pull out this Vintage Game Set ($20, Uncommon Goods). Watch as your grandfather delights in teaching the kids how to play "pick up sticks," which is presumably a child's game that came out of extreme poverty (no iPads there, you guys!  We just had STICKS to play with!).  ARE WE HAVING FUN YET?  


[GIFTED] Neighborwoods Luggage Tags

Everyone is obsessed with "travel hacks" because traveling sucks and we'd like to think that the people who travel all of the time have figured something out that we haven't.  Sure, maybe they have some good tips, but in general, traveling is annoying and that's pretty much unavoidable, unless you want to stay in one place for the rest of your life or you're rich enough to fly private (call me).

One of the biggest pieces of advice you'll get about traveling is to buy luggage that stands out from the sea of black wheelie bags that are ubiquitous.  But who wants to buy hot pink luggage?  And truthfully, anyone who's really an expert traveler will tell you that you should avoid checking a bag at all costs, as it adds extra cost and time to your trip that's not necessary.  Here's a tip: in the times that you can't avoid checking a bag, don't opt for the obnoxious-looking Samsonite suitcase.  Instead, deck your bag out with eye-catching, unique luggage tags, like these Neighborwoods Luggage Tags ($20). You'll see 'em all the way at the end of the baggage claim conveyer belt, but you won't be embarrassed to walk through the airport with it.  


[GIFTED] Bull Dog Mug 

If you have a dog obsessive in your life (you definitely do), a perfect gift for that pyschopath is this Bull Dog Mug ($17, Fishs Eddy), which allows her to start her day getting caffeinated while acknowledging and enjoying her dog obsession.  And hey, we're equal opportunity around these parts—there's also a cat mug.
