When I was in high school my boyfriend sent my cheesy Valentine’s Day gifts to my classroom in the middle the middle of class. He saw it as a Big Romantic Gesture, but I was MORTIFIED. And even worse, it was something useless and wasteful like heart-shaped balloons. And ever since then, I break out […]
Hi, and welcome to another one of Offbeat Home’s Very Specific Gift Guides! This time we’re exploring the best ADHD gifts. More specifically: gifts for adults with with ADHD. Even more specifically: the things that I’m obsessed with and can’t function without.
My sister sent me a gift that has totally changed my outlook on gifts for women in general. THIS is what you should gift the women in your life this holiday season…
Oh, it’s about that season again — the time of year when we all awkwardly gather around with groups of people we may or may not know at all (randos at the office! second cousins and their new girlfriends at family gatherings! neighbors who just moved to the hood!) and give each other weird (but not so weird that they’re offensive) gifts as part of a white elephant gift exchange.
The most ridiculously adorable gifts to snag on Small Business Saturday (that you’ll totally want to keep)
If you’re planning to take advantage of Black Friday/Cyber Monday/Hangover Tuesday, you’ll probably snag some sweet deals. But don’t forget: toooons of small businesses also have sales and promotions going on which allow you to stock up gifts for the holidays while supporting indie and small businesses. I rounded up a bunch of ludicrously endearing gifts for that super special weirdo in your life… or let’s face it, just for ourselves.
You’re probably lining up a whole lot of BBQs, summer parties, and general merriment now that the weather’s finer and we’re all in vacay mode (even if we’re just dreaming about it!). The best way to ensure that you keep getting an invite to those swankier parties is to bring a host/ess gift. They’re putting work into hosting and feeding y’all, so it’s a nice gesture.
Here are some of my favorite ways to say, “thanks for letting me eat, drink, and be merry with you!”
It can be challenging to find the right gifts for your family. But if they’re Potterphiles? Then it gets super-duper easy. We may all be Muggles sitting around at our day jobs, but at night, yer a wizard, ‘arry. I’m a what?
Let’s shop for baby mandrakes, Cars Against Potter, Hogwarts travel posters, “Boo, you whorecrux” mugs, and all things Potter….
It’s the unofficial holiday we all love to hate: BLACK FRIDAY! For some of us, this whole post-Thanksgiving weekend is going to be all about the deals and getting presents at the lowest prices we can find. It’s actually a pretty good time to find some of those inevitable white elephant and Secret Santa gifts, too.
I’ve included gifts in a variety of price ranges since there’s usually a limit or minimum when it comes to these round robin-style gift exchanges.
