If you’re one of those girls who layers a cami under your shirt and hates the bulk, then here is the answer to your woes. Just tug this shirt extender down and avoid all awkward plumber’s crack moments that could ensue from those hot, new, low-rise jeans. Not only will it get your back, it’ll get your front too! Muffin tops included in their “we’ve got you covered” motto. [$38, Miss Oops] Keep reading »
For parents, part of the joy of Christmas is knowing your children will behave in the days leading up to Santa’s arrival. But when you grow up, the scary possibility of finding coal in your stocking instead of presents has been fairly nonexistent, until now: Lush Cosmetics decided to bring back the sooty gift this season. But it’s not quite what you think. Though it may appear to be a pile of gross black rocks, their Want to Believe Bath Melt is actually a beauty product, made from soy milk and cocoa butter meant for a delicious bathing experience. It will soften the skin while also providing a great Christmas morning prank. Actually, it could be the most perfect gift for a frenemy. Keep reading »
Remember those gag gifts of singing bass fish on wooden plaques? Well, this is a ridiculous modification of that. Jingle Jugs are fashioned after a life-like set of boobs and shimmy-shake in rhythmic motion to the song “Titties & Beer.” They’re $10 on sale—imagine that, discounted already! Nothing like a little low-brow lewdness to wring out the last bits of the holiday season. [Spencer's] Keep reading »
As we get older, Christmas gifts have a tendency of getting more expensive and less whimsical. Barbie’s Dream House is replaced with four-inch Louboutin heels and it’s exciting, yes, but also a bit sad. I don’t remember the last time I received a gift that legitimately made me smile. That’s not to say that friends, family and sundry now-ex-boyfriends haven’t been thoughtful and generous. Because they have. The fault is more mine than anyone else’s. You see, I’m one of those conniving gift receivers that subtly lays the tracks for future presents weeks in advance. By the time the holiday finally arrives, I’ve subconsciously given people no other choice but to get me what I want. Devious though it may be, it’s a method I’ve perfected.
The thing is, this year I want a gift that’s almost impervious to my underhanded hinting and suggestions: ice skates. Keep reading »
Lest you think this Batman utility belt for grown-ass men is a joke, think again. The fact that this faux-leather ensemble costs a cool $279 and isn’t out until summer ’10 — yet they are already taking pre-orders — signifies that its makers are very, very serious indeed. [CNet] Keep reading »
The sweater may seem like a standard, almost impersonal gift. Done right, though, it’s the ideal present — it’s practical, attractive and will actually be used. That said, year after year of going with guy friends to return their hideous sweaters for other things has taught me a bit about how not to eff it up. Let’s learn from others’ mistakes:
- Avoid cardigans unless your guy has expressly made his interest in them clear either by mentioning that he is (or could be) a fan and/or he has previously worn one.
- Same goes for turtlenecks. The exact reasoning is still fairly mysterious, but turtle necks are a hard sell with dudes. (To be fair, this guy‘s hot and he does kind of look like a jerk in that turtleneck.)
- Sweaters should hit an inch or two below the top of his pants. Dude’s not trying to wear a dress or a crop top, so keep length in mind while shopping.
