Last week, we did the Rosie Says Non-Denominational, Non-Seasonal Gift Guide Part 1. Still at a loss for that special someone/boring-co-worker/favorite aunt/least-favorite uncle? Search no further:
Sparkly Things: Though much of my jewelry is a) my mother’s from the 80s or b) bought on a boardwalk shop in Virginia Beach in 2003, I like accessories as much as the next girl, especially necklaces with bookshelves, muffin tins, sloths, T-rexes, or DNA base-pairs at the ends of them. For the wrists, what about a Chicago map cuff, or a delicate leaf bangle?
Geekery/Nerdery: Abraham Lincoln band-aids? Yes please. From Novel-T, get him a Gatsby tee, or a Hester Prynne version for her (or switch it up, gender norms are for losers). Do you like big books? Of course you do, be loud and proud with this tote. Everyone’s favorite comic artist, xkcd, also has a store with nifty stuff like the Map of Online Communities poster, or the “Science: It Works, Bitches” t-shirt.
Foodie Winners: Make your own cheese! Or grow your own mushrooms! Figure out, finally, what molecular gastronomy means! Deb at Smitten Kitchen has a new cookbook out, and so does Coolio, so those are probably pretty much the same thing. And for the winos, there are always sippy cups.
