The season of giving is upon us, and as we creep closer to Christmas, there are those men out there who will start feeling that little sense of panic creeping in. Shopping for that special lady (or lad) in your life can be like trying to navigate a maze… blindfolded, but we’ve put together a Christmas gift guide with some great suggestions for all types of girls and guys in mind! These will make great gifts for the special people or in your life but are also the perfect excuse to treat yourself this feative season.
For the bookworm
Any Schumer is undoubtedly one of the hottest commodities in the comedy world today, and her new book, “The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo”, is exactly what’s needed to lighten the mood this holiday season. In the tongue-in-cheek book, Amy shares stories about her family, her relationships, her career, good – and bad – sex, recounting the experiences that have shaped who she is today: from the riches to rags story of her childhood to her teenage quest for popularity (and boys) to becoming one of the most sought-after comedians on the planet and an outspoken advocate for women’s rights. Whether she’s experiencing lust at first sight in the queue at the airport, discovering her boot camp instructor’s secret bad habit, or candidly discussing her father’s multiple sclerosis, Amy Schumer proves to be a fearless, original, and always entertaining storyteller.
For the fashion-forward
If yourrecipientt-to-be is a fan or interested in film, comic books or a band-lover, then a licensed t-shirt, which is not only branded accordingly but stylishly made, is a great gift this season. One particular shirt which caught our eye is the DC-licensed tee from Raru, which features Wonder Woman in a 1940s inspired pin-up girl pose. Both vintage-inspired and all kinds of fun, you can’t go wrong with this sassy number!
For the competitive and fun-at-heart
Anyone who has ever played Bananagrams will know how addictively enjoyable this game is. Somewhere between Uno and Scrabble, Banangrams is a game about words, speed, and wit. Using a selection of 144 plastic letter tiles in pack, each player works independently to create their own ‘crossword’. When a player uses up all their letters, all players take a new tile from the pool. When all the tiles are gone, the first player to use up all the tiles and shout “Bananagrams” wins. There are also alternate rules, giving the game a lot of variety, and it’s a great gift for the board game-loving lady and for couples looking for a fun activity this holiday.
For the music-lover
There’s not many women who refuse the soothingly punchy sounds of Caleb Followill and Co., and given that the Kings of Leon are about to release their brand-new album, Walls, delivering it as a gift to your loved one is a no-brainer. The album features the popular new single Waste a Moment, and nine other songs which are sure to be hits this summer.
For the girl on the move
We’re all bound to do a little travelling this holiday season, and one thing always makes being on the move a whole lot more difficult: trying to keep your headphones safe and untangled. This small tweed carry case is specifically designed for headphones and ensures you’re precious buds aren’t damaged and remain in tact when you need them. Plus, it’s beautiful to boot!
