I love everything to do with gifting: giving them, receiving them, scheming them, you name it. Since I have a kid a lot of my non-parent friends and family members will often ask me what kind of fun, kind of weird, somewhat non-traditional gifts they should give their nephews, nieces, family friends (and so on..) and I've decided I should just compile a list to make it easy on everyone.
This is Offbeat Home's archive of gifts posts.
I'm pretty stoked that I just found the perfect Father's Day gift(s) for my dad over on Think Geek, so I thought I'd give y'all a heads-up if you were still looking. Think Geek has these cool Father's Day gift sets, from Garden Dad, to Star Wars Dad and more! And here's a special code for a free shipping offer.
Now, most people are used to grandma sitting over a stove making strawberry jam in jars covered with gingham fabric. I really didn't want that. Looking online, I discovered something amazing about jam… alcohol makes it better! Strawberry Margarita Jam, Peach Fondue Jam, Black Forest Jam: you better believe I make the best jam going!
Fuck, guys. I love wine. I'm the self confessed wino of the Empire. You know what I also love? Sharks, Star Wars, inappropriate jokes, and kitchen stuff shaped like animals. I have combined my love of all those things to bring you this round-up of awesome wine bottle stoppers. (Psst: these make REALLY good gifts, so get your bookmarking fingers ready.)
Mother's Day is coming up. Now, I really love my future mother-in-law. She and I get along well and I have a few gift ideas in mind. But… do I get her something? And if so, what? Is there etiquette to this cuz there is no Hallmark Card for it.
Y'all get ready to do SQUEEing and AWWWWing over Offbeat Home & Life sponsor Mark Poulin's quirky and cute jewelry.
