a novella-length gift guide of biblical proportions, assembled with love by some of the coolest people on and off the internet
love this so much! all the internet it girls! as for my fave gift to give, i buy 50 plain white matchbooks for 6 bucks on amazon, and then i'll decorate one with poetry and drawings and colors that remind me of a friend and then give it to them. i think of it as a card-level gift, or like, a cute party favor. i pair it with other gifts a lot. :))

I’m a big fan of being gifted things I need but will not spend money on for myself. Last year I asked for a metal water bottle (low fuss, no silicone because otherwise it’ll never feel clean to me) and I got just that! When I was 16 my least favorite aunt bought me a nice towel for Christmas, and while I was baffled at the time, I’ve really come to appreciate that as a college student. I say this while wearing slippers she got me one Christmas that took me a year to even take out of the box. I guess what I’m really saying is to be a little less harsh on your shitty aunts because a broken clock is right twice a day, usually on Christmas.
maybe boring but i think things that you can wear every day made in beautiful materials are excellent gifts. i have a navy blue johnstons of elgin cashmere jumper that i got for 28 euro on ebay and it is so special to me. last month for our anniversary i got my girlfriend a tiny 14kt gold vintage teddy bear charm to wear on the chain i bought for her birthday (her late grandfather was a really important figure in her life and he loved teddy bears), it won't tarnish for a long time so she doesn't have to take it off. a bialetti moka pot is a v chic and practical present for anyone who drinks coffee imo, i love the ritual of it (so much nicer than one of those pod machines) and using mine makes me feel like a gorgeous young sicilian widow who is is tormented by her emotional and as-yet unconsummated affair with the local priest. and they look so cute. a thing of beauty is a joy forever etc.
THAT RUG THOUGH
I’ve never clicked on something faster
amazing group of people who i am most surely parasocially acquainted with, and nobody ever does it like you do!!!! thank u for writing
I’m getting my lovely mother FishWife tinned fish because it’s adorable and she loves interesting food, and a backgammon set so she can teach me how to play and we can play together. @evilfemale is right on the nose with a chess set, last year for christmas I MADE my other brother a ceramic chess set by hand and fired and glazed each little piece with a design and it took probably 75 hours and I made me happier than it made him. I love to play board games that are as old as time ❤️
Very pleasantly surprised to see Harmony, Quinnie n Eliza here since im obssesed with their music (n Clara's tiktok!) but it makes sm sense that the coolest online girls know each other... tysm for the yearly gift guide and you bet i'm about to exploit it this upcoming christmas😭🤞🏻💌
I’m going to handcraft Brock’s gift and make them display it for at least 1 year 😈
Multiple cans of whipped cream is so real, whipped cream got me through college
as far as gift ideas: I am getting my brother the ingredients to his favorite cocktail + a set of cute cocktail glasses as a christmas/housewarming gift for his new apartment. He really likes white russians (okay?......... i used to work at a bar and when he ordered them, the bartender was like: kill yourself) but whatever so i’m getting him kahlua and vodka and cream as a cute little set and then cutesy glasses.
