So Wrong (But Sort Of Right): Jingle Jugs

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 lewdne…

What I Really Want for Christmas: Ice Skates

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,…

Holy Ridiculous Gift Idea, Batman!

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]…

How To Buy A Dude A Sweater He’ll Actually Like

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…

Cheapskate: Anthropologie Clearance

I think of Anthropologie as Urban Outfitters' older, sophisticated, and more expensive sister. So when someone suggested it for this week's Cheapskate, I was a little apprehensive. I mean, I hardly ever find anything there that I have to have for the ridiculous price it costs. I have no problem admitting I'm…

So Wrong: Kid In A Kit To Fool The Office

We've talked before about reasons not to have children, so here's another—you can just fake it! When it comes to balancing work and home life, we mainly think about the negative ... but doesn't having kids also give you a legitimate reason to do less work, too? (Real-world answer: no.) The Kid in a…

Bucky Balls: The Go-To Gift For The Guy In Your Life

You're probably thinking to yourself, "WTF, Amelia? Why would I want a bunch of metallic balls all stuck together?" Allow me to explain. You know how when you're noodling over an idea, or talking on the phone, and you need something to do with your hands and masturbating wouldn't really be appropriate? Well, Bucky Ball…

Here’s A Trashy Gift Idea

New York-based artist Justin Gignac is one of those dudes who inspires us to ask, Why didn't I think of that? After a co-worker pointed out and emphasized the importance of package design, he got the bright idea that anything could be dressed to sell, including garbage. In addition to hawking crap from the street…

No Reindeer Were Harmed In The Making Of This Bag

This hand-quilted bag with a faux antler handle would have coordinated perfectly with the outfit Lady Gaga wore on Monday. And it's the priciest item we've ever encountered on Etsy, so it would match the singer's expensive taste, too. [$600, Etsy]…

Cheapskate: Aeropostale

I'm feeling a little nostalgic as I remember how Aeropostale was the shizznit when I was in high school. The retailer still caters the teen-set with its logo-splattered clothing, but adults like us can still find some necessary basics for cheap, which is how we Cheapskates roll.

Brilliant Gift Idea: Ballet—Wii-Style!

No, I was never one of those little girls being dropped off in her little pink tutu for ballet class—hell, I couldn't even hack it in the "dance" portion of gymnastics, and my sister and I bailed on the class right before it was time to for my mother to pay for our recital get-ups.

Get Dita’s Hair For The Holidays

Okay, we're not so naive that we think that using the hair products Dita von Teese is hawking on her website will make us look like the burlesque diva or anything, but we can be kind of excited about it as the perfect gift idea for girly fans. Little known fact: Dita's mama i…

Custom Mugs For The Coffee (Or Tea) Drinker Who Has Everything

Finding holiday gifts for everyone on your list isn't the easiest thing you'll do this month (actually, the easiest thing to do this month is eat your weight in sugar cookies). Most of us buy the things we need as we need them, which leaves present purchasers without any solid leads. Sometimes, the easiest…

Cheapskate: Urban Outfitters

There are three things we love about Urban Outfitters: it usually has several iterations of trend pieces per season, the designer collaborations are pretty awesome, and almost everything goes on sale, unless it sells out. Here are some of our Cheapskate finds, after the jump.

Festive Fragrances: New Ralph By Ralph Lauren Candles

As a girl who has been wearing Ralph by Ralph Lauren perfume since she was a teen, I'm intrigued by this new line of RALPH candles, which might just be the answer to finding a signature scent for the home. The collection includes brightly-colored soy candles in a few families of fragrances. Some give…

Scare Off Unwanted Suitors With This Ring

Rihanna is a fashion trendsetter who is sometimes so far ahead of the curve it's hard for us to keep up. But, like with Lady Gaga, the best way to follow Rihanna's lead is to do so subtly. For the past several months, she's been all about spiked clothes and accessories, from…

Let Rachel Bilson Tell You What To Buy

The holidays and Black Friday are coming, which means it's time to hit the mall for gift inspiration. Enter associated feelings of panic. This year, why not recruit a celebrity to do the hard work for you? After all, they've spent the whole year trying new clothing, shoes, and goodies, so who else would know…

Win This: Free Company 81 Clothes For Your Boo

Being girly girls and all, we don't know much about Company 81, except that it reminds us a lot of Abercrombie and American Eagle, but seems to be of higher quality and yet way more affordable at the same time. While combing the shops for gifts for guys, we've turned up all…
