12 Ornaments That Are NSFT (Not Suitable For Tree)

There are some indignities that your Christmas tree or Chanukah bush should not have to endure. Like having a nut sack dangle from its branches. We appreciate that the “Bauballs” ornament was created to raise money and awareness about testicular cancer, but Santa, and the rest of your family, can surely survive the holiday season without a pair of balls swinging from the tree’s branches. Buy one, or make a donation, but we beg you, don’t decorate with ball sack. Your tree deserves better than that. Click on through to see more ornaments that at NSFT (not suitable for tree). Or work. You have been warned. [Buzzfeed]

What they do: Empower girls age 6 to 18 to achieve their full potential through mentoring and hands-on experiences.

Why I support them: Before I came to write full-time for The Frisky, I ran a program at Portland Community College that partnered with local high schools to get more teenage girls signed up in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) classes. I met some really amazing young women who were excelling in science and technology (including a particularly gifted robotics club member who I’m convinced will grow up to be either the best President we’ve ever had or the most fearsome dictator the world has ever known), but I also saw a lot of girls falling into familiar patterns of silence, deferring to male classmates, and opting out of high level math and science classes because they were uninterested or intimidated… Keep reading »

Guys, I know picking out a Christmas gift for your lady (if she hasn’t told you exactly, specifically what she wants) is no easy feat. There are so many options out there.
