'Tis the season to buy things ... like slapbands

Posted By on Thu, Dec 2, 2010 at 3:34 PM

Since it’s the season for demanding presents and everyone else is indiscriminately posting their wish lists in the form of “gift guides,” I figured it was time to follow suit.I sifted through all the “must-haves” and updates, searching for interesting things people would actually want to get. Why? Because I love you guys and don’t want you giving presents that cause your friends to cringe, fake a smile, and painfully squeeze out, “How nice, where did you find it?” through gritted teeth.

So, without further ado, straight from the pages of the online catalogs I lust over, here’s @beccacolada’s 2010 pre-approved-by-my-own-consumer-greed Christ-kkah-kwanzi-mas gift guide (aka: wish list):

Blackburn Flea 2.0 Solar Light $39.99

Because, sometimes, taking your bike to work just isn’t eco-friendly enough.

The Complete New Yorker $179

A classic-made-digital I can actually get behind. February 1925 to April 2008 on a 120G drive.

She & Hemergency Kits $12.00 - 25.00

A gift for either the chronically prepared or unprepared.  Stay sharp, or ensure others’ success!

Griffin's iPod Nano slapband $25

Just like the bands you used to fight your friends for, but cooler.

Oregon Scientific EB612 Personal UV Monitor with Exposure Timer $39.99

For those of you who turn red in a matter of minutes.  Measure your exposure and cringe.

Worst case scenario: you can always create a personalized gift card and just let them pick their own toys.
