Gift Guide 2016: For The Person Who Hated 2016.

Irreverent Gifts - The Stripe 2016 Holiday Gift Guide

Apologies upfront for all of the curse words. I always do a snarky gift guide (see last year’s here), so hopefully  you can see the humor in these gifts. My 2016 was fine. It wasn’t the best year of my life, but it definitely wasn’t terrible, either. That being said, nearly everyone I know has told me horror stories about their 2016. This was, for many of my friends, a horrendous year. And so, this gift guide is dedicated to them. There are middle fingers, curse words galore, an incredibly funny Gwyneth Paltrow parody to make her laugh, and just for fun, the coolest pair of badass rainbow earrings that will inspire her to live her best life. Because things always get better… but in the meantime, a bit of snark will help. (And at the other end of the spectrum, check out these happy gifts!)

PS – Check out the rest of our gift guides! The best hostess giftsgifts for the traveler, the coziest gifts of 2016, the best gifts for the cat lady (meowy Christmas!), gifts for the girly girl, gifts for the social media addict/blogger, the best gifts for guys, the best gifts for under $25, the best gifts for the optimist, the best gifts under $50, the best gifts for the career woman, and the prettiest little luxuries.
