What’s cool this Christmas? Everything retro! Gift your guy a trip down memory lane with retro tech: for music fans, try an old school turntable. Know a game nerd? Hook him up with a game console that’ll put all his old NES, SNES and Sega game cartridges to good use!

Movie and TV buffs can score too: pick up some fun memorabilia from your guy’s favorite flick or show, like this Bad Motherfucker wallet (a la Pulp Fiction), or Stranger Things Monopoly. Another gift we’re lovin’ this Christmas? Litograph’s line-up of text-based tees, like this Princess Bride shirt (below).

AS TOP PICK: Gifting for multiples? Get creative! Whether you’re shopping for couples or families, this is a great time to use the “lots of little things” approach! Pick a theme, then put together your own arrangement of fun, quirky, or thoughtful gifts!

Know a couple that likes to camp together? Help them stock up for their next adventure with a Yeti multi-purpose bucket filled with their favorite beers or a cozy camping blanket! (Pro tip: use packing peanuts or chunks of styrofoam to fill your beer bucket with “ice”)

What about those friends who like to wine, dine and taste all-things fine? Skip the pre-made cheese baskets (yawn) and hook ’em up right: get the party started with a cheese board or an ice bucket, and pre-load with their favorite snacks and spirits!

Whatever theme you pick, just remember the Golden Rule: when shopping for couples, cater to their shared interests!


The Couple that Plays Together: Bucket | Bottle Opener | Pocket Blanket | Bocce Ball Set | Change Bank 

The Couple that Entertains Together: Cocktail Set | Ice Bucket | Cheese Board | Brain Teasers
