This year, instead of exchanging holiday presents here at The Frisky, we’ve decided to give each other slideshows of the gifts we would give one another if money were no object. First up is Amelia. She works her butt off and we think she deserves to be showered with presents. Click through to see the gifts in Amelia’s virtual stocking. It’s the thought that counts, right?
Holiday gift-giving can be weird. Some people you don’t know well enough to be able to pick out a gift that shows thought and caring.
Of course, some people don’t deserve any thought and caring at all — especially a possibility if your workplace does one of those silly secret Santa gift exchanges.
Finally, some folks are just plain weird and impossible to buy for. The folks at HuffPost Weird News have combed every retailer from the major to the miniscule looking for gifts that are sure to please the weird person in your life. Read more…
If you catch me with my fingers pruned and my heart rate sluggish, chances are I just got out of the bath. Yes, I have been known to linger in the tub for well over an hour… sometimes approaching two. Sylvia Plath summed it up best in The Bell Jar when she said, “There must be quite a few things that a hot bath won’t cure, but I don’t know many of them.” Light some candles, pop a bottle of champagne, set the tap to 95, please, and I’ll see you in a few hours.

You know who I’m talking about: she’s always got headphones glued to her ears, stood in line to score the iPhone4S, and mocks you endlessly for still having a Hotmail account. Here are 10 gifts that will make the plugged-in girl in your life jump for joy.

‘Tis the season for fugly Christmas sweaters. Some celebs enjoy flaunting their holiday cheer in a hideous, knitted mess. The perfect ironic, Christmas look is all in the attitude of the wearer. It’s imperative that Christmas sweaters be worn irreverently or not at all. I’m not sure that Justin Bieber pulled off this festive cardigan (which allegedly cost a cool $1700) on his recent “Today Show” appearance. Ignoring the price tag momentarily, the Biebs looks no older than 12. Way too young to be a daddy. Maybe that was the intended look he was going for in the midst of his paternity scandal.

You know what I kind of hate? Stuff. Sitting there, requiring dusting, storage, packing when I move. Getting rid of unwanted, unbeautiful things is practically a hobby of mine. Do you still want that gold unicorn figurine? Because I really want to donate it to Goodwill so I don’t have to look at it anymore.
And Christmastime is the season of stuff. We all receive mountains of random crap from those ridiculous office Secret Santas, shirt-tail relatives and well-intentioned others. A framed print of dogs playing poker for the art snob! Cheese and meat trays for the vegetarian! Jingly, jangly earrings for the un-pierced! So, let’s save ourselves some embarrassment, a bit of wrapping paper and a trip to the returns counter and give the lovelies in our lives some consumable, usable non-stuff this year. Here are 10 to get you started… Keep reading »
