So many good gifts on this list! The gnome, sweatshirt and tee shirt…love them all!
Thanks, Erica! xx
In just 2017, I lost my mom, my dog, my job and had a breakup…so if someone could just send this to everyone I know…
I’m so sorry. Sending good vibes your way!
This. is. everything.
I’m so glad you appreciate it! 😉
I was thinking about buying this ornament for a friend who has had a really hard year, but now that I think about your love of irreverence and cats, you probably need this on your tree.
Oh my gosh, this is AMAZING – thank you so much for sharing. I know a few people that need it!!!!
Definitely the best gift guide I’ve seen this year so far <3
Thank you so much Allyson! It’s always my favorite to put together!!!
Just saw this on FB and duh, had to share with you: https://www.facebook.com/uniladmag/videos/3840956669260697/
omgg haha yessss
Oh yes, this is the list for me and my people. I bought that oven mitt for my mom when she was going through radiation this year as part of a “fuck cancer” care package. Great finds, great humor!
I love that!!!! Thanks so much Jenn.
Omg I love the sleep mask! Need it in my life immediately.

You and me both!!!!
I fucking love this 😉
Hahahahaha I’m so glad! xo
Bookmarking this less as a gift guide and more of a “I’m definitely buying these for myself” guide! Ha!
i look forward to this guide every year…loving the picks you have, especially that oven mitt!
I am so glad as it is my favorite to put together!
These are beyond amazing, Grace! I love all of your picks — especially that sleeping mask! So funny!!

thanks dana! I know, I need that sleep mask!!!!
What a fun and innovative gift guide! You made me smile today, thank you!
I haven’t gifted the oven mittens yet, but Blue Q’s dish towels and socks are my go to birthday gift for literally all my rad female friends. They always make the recipient laugh and that’s all you need from giftgiving, I think. I particularly love the sassiness of their slogans. “Bitch, I am the secret ingredient”, “I like long romantic walks to the fridge” and “Do one thing everyday that scares your family” are my favourite ones.
Hahahahaha I love those! And glad that this made you smile! XO
