Shop: Hoffmaster Woodworks

Shop: Hesslerk – Home of the Original Altoids Amp

Price: $14.99 – $16.99 (depending on size)
Buy it for: Your grumpy coworker. Include a gift certificate to the nearest coffee shop so they can escape to have it filled in peace. An alternate gift for this person is this mug that says “I survived another meeting that could have been an email.”

Price: $19.08 – $46.56 (depending on size/fabric)

Shop: Reclaimer Design
Price: $44.95 – $54.95 (depending on style)
Buy it for: That treat-yo-self friend. It’s pretty critical to confirm they do in fact have a bath (instead of just a stand-up shower) and they actually use it. I personally have not taken a sit down bath since I was a child.

Shop: Honor Roll Designs
Buy it for: Anyone who has sat down to watch the entire Gilmore Girls Revival on Netflix in 24 hours. It should not be hard to determine if someone is a Gilmore Girls fan right now. If they’re talking about the revival, they want this.
Shop: Rose Gold Rebel
Buy it for: Your favorite coworker. Pair it with this Donut Bother Me mug to solidify your office alliance. Or go in the complete opposite direction with this very grumpy “Go the f*ck away” mouse pad and “F*ck this sh*t” mug. Truly something for everyone.

Buy it for: Your cooler younger sibling who lives in Plaza Midwood or NoDa.
