Texas Longhorns – Fine Art Photo from Deirdre T

Happy birthday, Taurus, or Taureans, to be exact. Taurus, the second sign of the zodiac, is symbolized by the bull, a symbol of strength, tenacity, virility, and power—all traits used to describe those born April 21 through May 21. But aside from their stubborn nature, Taureans have much more to them than just outward appearances.

They are patient, reliable, warm-hearted and enjoy the good things in life, whether earthly, financial, sensual or cultural. With such varied interests, spoiling your favorite Taurus on their birthday should really be quite simple. Here are 10 no-bull gifts to celebrate the special bull in your life!

12 Gifts to Make Aries Your Numero Uno!

Mens Leather Aries Cuff

Men’s Leather Aries Cuff from The Ravens Daughter

Independent, generous, optimistic, enthusiastic, courageous … these are all characteristics that have been used to describe Aries, the first sign of the Zodiac, from March 21-April 19. Aries is symbolized by the ram, which has come to represent aggression and courage, making Aries an active, energetic sign. Arians are direct, straightforward, and uncomplicated and expect the same from others. Throughout history, rams were often symbols of leadership, and as such, Aries people are said to be natural-born leaders who venture out and approach life “head-on”.

Aries are complex. They have a combination of strong masculine and feminine expressions all jumbled up together. But don’t fret. If you have an Aries in your life, there are ways to show them you love and appreciate them and these gifts will do just that!

Ambitious, sincere, competitive. Hardworking, committed and determined. These are all qualities of the Capricorn, born December 22 – January 19. Unfortunately, with a birthday that close to Christmas, more often than not, it gets overshadowed by the holiday and their gift becomes a dual purpose holiday/birthday kinda thing.

This year, don’t let the season overshadow their day! Celebrate your Capricorn on their birthday and make them feel special—even if their birthday is on December 25th.

20 Meatastic Gifts for Carnivores!

Meat Love U

Meat Love U by Charity Ryan

Yeah, yeah, we all know the eat-less-meat buzz is spreading worldwide, but not everyone wants to board that Kermit-colored, rouphage-laden train. Some people prefer to get their protein from something that once had parents rather than a plant or bean. True meat lovers are something of a rare kind. They can name the time and place of their “best steak ever”; they stop at butcher counters, in awe, to admire the vast selection of meaty goodness; they once took a cross-country road trip just to try a burger they saw on TV. These are the true carnivores, the meat lovers of the world, and it is for them that this list was put together!

Finally…White Elephant Gifts that Don’t Suck!


White Elephant Print by Skylar Hogan

You know the drill, it’s the same in most workplaces. Every year before the holiday break, the office hosts a traditional holiday twosome: a potluck lunch and a white elephant gift exchange.

The rules of a white elephant are simple. Each person brings a present that is already wrapped and places it, anonymously, on a table. The gifts usually have a preset spending limit, typically under $25. Each participant draws a number, indicating when they will take their turn selecting and unwrapping a present from the table. Upon your turn, you can either choose a new, wrapped gift, or trade steal someone else’s gift. Depending on the house rules, each gift can be “stolen” 2-3 times.

Sounds easy enough, right? Well, in theory, sure. But the reality is, most people dread white elephant gift exchanges because let’s face it – the gifts are usually pretty crappy. The whole premise is obligatory gift giving for someone you don’t know (or don’t know if someone you know will get what you purchased. You know?), all within a preset, rather low, dollar amount. But think about it a little more carefully … if you are participating in the gift exchange, do you want to end up with some half-used, awful-smelling, re-gifted bottle of hand lotion? Probably not. So buck up, take it seriously, and give a white elephant gift that doesn’t suck. They actually do exist!

Get it Together! 10 Gifts for the Perpetually Late and Unorganized

Now is The Time Letterpress Print

Now is the Time by Rawart Letterpress

Tardiness is my number one pet peeve. Most of us know someone perpetually late and unorganized. They’re never on time, they always have an excuse, and more often than not, they look like a hot mess because even as late as they are, they still rushed to get there.

I have a sister who is notorious for missing her flight every Christmas to come home. We’ve come to the point where we just expect her to show up a couple days late. Comical? Yes. Annoying? Totally. Here are 10 helpful gifts to get people where they need to be, when they need to be there.

On the Road Again… 10 Gifts for a Well Organized Car


My Car-Nivorous Dinosaur Print from Christopher on Society6

We all lead busy lives. Multi-tasking and having a to-do list a mile long seems to be the norm these days. And many of us (re: ME) live in cities with less than optimal public transportation. All this leads to spending A LOT of time in the car. Sometimes I even feel like I live in my car, which can quickly become a hot mess. Trash on the floor, extra shoes and clothes in the back, work papers strewn all about, let’s not even look in the trunk … you get the idea.

But a clean and well organized car doesn’t just have to be something you dream about. With a little forethought and a few key items, your car can be neat and tidy and serve a higher purpose than simply getting you from Point A to Point B.

These 10 gifts are great for anyone who spends an inordinate amount of time in their car, or really anyone who’s just a complete slob in their vehicle. And what about the long drives ahead to visit family for the holidays? They’ll make those even better too!

Willie Bird Fresh Pre-Brined Turkey

Willie Bird Fresh Pre-Brined Turkey from Williams Sonoma

Happy November everyone! Or Movember to some… Either way, Thanksgiving is just around the corner! Held in the golden warmth of fall, the trees filled with deep red and orange, the cool crisp air bringing in the scents of autumn combined with warm turkey roasting in the oven… People gather, laugh and enjoy a day where the only expectation is to be thankful.

But, let’s be honest, Thanksgiving is also kind of about food. Massive, enormous quantities of delicious, comforting, coma-inducing food. It’s the holiday where the majority of people let go of their inhibitions (diets) for a day of sheer gluttony. Roasted turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberries, biscuits, pumpkin pie – these are only a few of the traditional holiday meal dishes. We want to help make your Thanksgiving one to remember. Whether you’re in charge of the feast or want to treat the person who is, here are 11 essential pieces for making the holiday meal everyone will be talking about!
