Gift Guide: Handmade Gifts From Artisans I Found Through Instagram

Instagram is of course awesome for documenting your daily life in photographs, and following the happenings of your friends and loved ones. But I actually follow a whole big list of total strangers on Instagram, many of whom are artsy craftsy types who make beautiful handmade home decor, accessories, jewelry, etc. There’s a whole interconnected network of these artisans who support each other’s work and sell their wares. If you’re sick of giving gifts from major retailers and want to support small businesses instead, Instagram is a great resource for finding gifts that are truly special. Here are some I suggest…

“Bros Being Basic” On Instagram Will Make You Feel So #Blessed

Bros Being Basic features a slew of dudes partaking in trademark basic bitch behavior on Instagram, complete with perfectly predictable (and sarcastic) hashtags. They are totally spot on, which makes me think that these guys are maybe starting to see the allure of all those yoga poses and pumpkin spice lattes. Being basic feels good, doesn’t it bros?

Are hickies back? Is this something adults are doing these days? Should I be practicing my suckling technique? [Dlisted]

I still hate the fact that most museum patrons seem to be there to say that they were there, to have the pictures to prove it; that they’re not seeing the art, they’re seeing themselves with the art. At the same time, I don’t want to fall down the rabbit hole that says “Selfies are bad! You’re so vain! How can you be so self-absorbed!
