2017 Holiday Gift Guide

This is just one of a million gift guides you’ll see this year. Still, we’re proud to share what we’ve had our fingers on the “shut up and take my money” button for lately. Go ahead, pick something out for you or anyone who makes things suck less.

Universe: Exploring the Astronomical World – It’s time to take a journey and see what we know about our far out universe.

Adidas UltraBOOST All Terrain – This mid-cut, water-resistant sneaker not only looks dope, but it’s like walking on cushions.

Gramovox floating record player – When your records are too fly to hide inside.

Onsen Towel – Sick of your towels being musty and moist, even when they’ve been on the rack all day? Premium cotton and good design can fix that.

Ork Posters: San Diego – Way back when we first heard about Ork and the entire Holiday Matinee team lived in SD, we felt left out. Well, all is forgiven. It’s also available in the aptly named Seventy and Sunny and Balboa Blue color combos.

Bluetooth Cassette Boombox – Finally, I can relive those demo tapes from my old college punk rock days.

New York City Transit Authority: Objects – Interesting things found in and around the NYC Subway.

Cinema Lightbox – Outfit your crib with your own inspirational message or clever copywriting.

Visualize Free Pizza keytag – At last, a keychain that increases the likelihood of free pizza by 67%. Available in all your favorite toppings.

Haircuts of Hackney – A colorful fold-out book documenting the extravagant hairstyles of people living in East London.

Uno + Ichi Basketball clay pots – They got game.

PSA Press pins – Lots of dope pins in this store, but I love this MJ and Steph Curry set. Don’t sleep on MySpace Tom or the IKEA instruction man either.

Adult Award Ribbons – That’s right, celebrate real achievements!

Boss Ross Chia Pet – We don’t give presents, we give happy little gifts.

Our November mixtape

As we swing deeper into the holidays, make time for yourself. You are incredibly important and if you think about it, you can’t help anyone when you don’t look out for yourself. We hope this month’s mix can play a part in that. As we’re reminded, “Life can turn out really good if you work with what ya got.”

Our October mixtape

Is this the year you finally got everything you needed for an epic Halloween costume? Don’t worry, there’s always time to get creative. While we didn’t try to get obsessively spooky with this mix, it does have its share of wolves, aliens, and straight fire. Turn it up and get in the haunting mood. Season 2 of Stranger Things is out on Friday too!

Our September mixtape

Everyone seems to be fanatical about fall, but we can’t help but think Jim Gaffigan has a point in his hilarious take on seasons. This month’s mix features new music from The Drums, Courtney Barnett, Charlotte Gainsbourg, King Krule, and more. Have a listen and be sure to share with some friends if you dig.
